Brazilian thrashers Nervosa have announced their new line up which includes three members from bands Abbath, Bloodhunter and Mask of Prospero.
The news follows drummer Luana Dametto and bassist/vocalist Fernanda Lira announcing separately on Facebook they had left the band on April 25 and 26 respectively.
This week, creator, founding member and guitarist Prika Amaral announced that vocalist Diva Satanica (Bloodhunter), bassist Mia Wallace (Abbath, Triumph of Death), and drummer Eleni Nota (Mask of Prospero, Croque Madame) have all joined.
“It was an incredible experience to meet so many talented women,” she said.
“It was not easy to choose just one and being forced to say “no” to several really good musicians.
“But the question is beyond musical competence. It involves availability, professional posture, good communication, etc… I am very happy with the result and very confident.”
Amaral said the choice to form a quartet instead of reinstating a trio was made to give Nervosa a fresh approach and show another thrilling facet, but will in no way take away from the thrash/death essence they are renowned for.
She said fans can expect riffs with a lot of down-picking and a strong grip, fast and technical drums, a renewed and heavier bass with super aggressive thrash metal vocals.
The band has also revealed they have begun working on new music.
“I already have a lot of new songs saved and we have already started writing.
“We plan to launch some new material online during self-quarantine downtime, as well.
“I guarantee that Nervosa is coming with full strength.”
Nervosa guarantees that as soon as live events can happen again, they will comply with their schedule and travel the world to bring their unique sound everywhere.
