On June 1st, the Brazilian all-female thrash unit Nervosa will deliver its second blistering slab of metal on Napalm Records, “Downfall of Mankind.” Check out my choice cut below from the album, “Never Forget, Never Repeat.”
For me, this reminds me of old “Beneath the Remains” Sepultura (which makes sense), Kreator and Arch Enemy. What is deemed as thrash metal today, was the death metal of yesterday—never mind that Nervosa is female, it doesn’t matter because this is just plain brutal, yet catchy at the same time. In other words, this isn’t your dad’s thrash metal.
Nervosa 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.
Fernanda Lira comments 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!”
