From a self produced video to being signed to Napalm records. The short life of Nervosa has been somewhat of a rollercoaster ride. Conceived whilst in previous bands, the members gave up everything to form Nervosa. Born on the South American road, Nervosa were soon picked up by Destruction frontman Schmier who took the band under his wing and showcased their music video via social media. Within a short time the video had gathered tens of thousands of views on youtube, earning them a great deal of noise throughout the world.
Their blinding debut album release “Victim of Yourself” sent shockwaves throughout the metal industry gaining the Brazilian trio the credibility they so richly deserve. Nervosa are now back with a second album “Agony“.
What the label says:
Brazil`s meanest power trio has returned: Nervosa indulge in relentlessly raw all-female thrash metal on their second studio album Agony that almost effortlessly merges the energy of the glorious 80s with the refined aggression of this millennium. Played even more on point and precise than debut Victim of yourself (2014), it definitely enriches the Nervosa sound having transferred the production to the USA: the South American riff tornado is in flawless shape! Nods to Kreator, Slayer etc really are just the tip of the iceberg here, and the Brazilian squad continues to drag its fans down into a malicious maelstrom full of old school darkness…
Currently on tour in Europe I catch up with Bassist/ vocalist Fernanda Lira via telephone to chat about her musical journey and life in Nervosa and what’s next for the thrasher trio.
