Guest Column: Three Bands You May Not Know But Should By Nervosa’s Fernanda Lira

If you dig death and thrash, check out these suggestions from South America



By now, you should know the drill. We’ve been having musicians from across metal’s grand spectrum pen brief guest columns for us on a number of engaging topics: must-read books, must-see films, and bands you may not know but absolutely should. Today’s column comes from Nervosa’s Fernanda Lira.

Torture Squad
All of the bands I’m gonna present you guys here are Brazilian and have been many years on the road now! Torture Squad is the perfect band for those who love that blend of thrash and death metal!

I’d say they are the perfect mix of Morbid Angel with Annihilator! Fast blast beats, along with the traditional thrash metal beats and a lot, A LOT of creativity! Catchy choruses, furious riffs and very inspired compositions from all instruments are their best qualities!


Brazilian thrash metal band with a really FURIOUS vibe! Their music is full of aggressiveness and everything they do is very true, very honest! They have fought many battles during their career and always stayed true to what they do!

Also they have recently released a BRILLIANT new album, called Peste! It’s my favorite one, all sung in Portuguese, with a very interesting message. Their lyrics are always about human aspects and also political; in their lyrics, they have a way of singing that can really disclose how unhappy people in Brazil are with the way politics treat us and our country! In this very same album, they invited a samba percussion group to join a song and the result is one of the most eccentric and coolest things ever made!

Lacerated and Carbonized
Awesome brutal death metal band from Rio de Janeiro! Their lyrics also represent the harsh reality of Brazil’s people and all this hatred is very well expressed on the songs, musically speaking: furious blast beats and riffs and incredibly deep and aggressive vocals!! It’s worth the listen!
