This is ex-fucking-citing news! On June 1st, the all-female Brazilian thrash metal unit, Nervosa, returns with their third full-length (second on Napalm Records), Downfall of Mankind. If you’re a fan of old-school thrash in the vein of early Slayer, and you haven’t yet heard Nervosa, do yourself a goddamn favor and check them out. This is as authentic as it comes from a band who genuinely loves metal as fans and as a band.
As the press release states:
This Brazilian all-female thrash commando unit is synonymous with raw aggression and untamed power. They deliver a massive punch to the face and a kick in the gut on their albums, and when they take to the stage they are a force to be reckoned with. For their third album, Downfall of Mankind, the trio joined forces with producer Martin Furia who has worked with artists including the likes of Destruction, Flotsam & Jetsam, and Evil Invaders.
Bassist and vocalist Fernanda Lira commented on the new album:
We’re really happy about this new album. It’s a way more mature and aggressive record and we can definitely say it’s our favorite so far!
Nervosa are currently on the road with Venom Inc. and Suffocation throughout Europe. A complete list of dates can be found below.
