Brazilian thrash metal act Nervosa reveals the names of new band members. Please, welcome vocalist Diva Satanica (Bloodhunter), bassist Mia Wallace (Abbath & Triumph of Death), and drummer Eleni Nota (Mask of Prospero and Croque Madame) in the Nervosa family!
At the end of April, the former Nervosa vocalist/bass player Fernanda Lira and drummer Luana Dametto, announced they’ve parted ways with the band. “This was all expected, it was no surprise to me, things hadn’t been going well for a long time and for many reasons,” commented the founding member and guitarist Prika Amaral, who also ensured the fans that the band will come back soon and stronger than ever.
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. 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.
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! The band is also pleased to state that they have begun working on new music. Stay tuned for more info!
Prika Amaral comments: “It was an incredible experience to meet so many talented women. 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. 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.”
