All female Brazilian thrash metal trio from São Paulo. The music composed by the girls in NERVOSA has strong influences on thrash metal, mixed with original and personal elements inserted by each of the band members on the songs.
Even joining, in the past, bands from different styles, like punk, hardcore, death metal and crossover, all band members see in NERVOSA's music one common passion: thrash metal. With strong influences from classic old school bands, such as Slayer, Sepultura, Exodus, Ratos de Porão, Pantera, Napalm Death, the girls try to pick up what's best on this old school heavy music, like the 80′s style, so loved among the metalheads.
The band started in february 2010, Prika Amaral and Fernanda Terra knew each other and had the same will to play thrash metal. After a long time looking for bassplayers and singers, many rehearsals, and 4 composed songs, it was only in July 2011 that the girls got to know Fernanda Lira that immediately joined the band, assuming both positions singer and bassplayer in the band. To complete the team, Karen, from Curitiba, Brazil and band's old friend, does her first rehearsal in august 2011.
But, in the beginning of 2012, guitarist Karen Ramos, due to personal reasons related to her distance from the city of São Paulo, opted to leave the band and move on with other projects.
The other band members, then, decided to go ahead with the band as a power trio, discarding the possibility of another guitarplayer entering the band.
In March 2012, the band launched their first video clip for the song 'masked Betrayer', that reached the incredible mark of 20 thousand views in only a week, what led them to receive an honorable mention from YouTube, in the post of 17th most viewed artists video and 55th most viewed in the month of March.
Thanks to the notoriety conquered through their hardwork, NERVOSA, in the following months, got two huge achievements.
The first one was the deal with american manager Jeff Keller, who also represent great band like Destruction and Hirax.
The other big news was the band inking a deal with the Austrian record label Napalm Records, which has in their roster names like Grave Digger, Hate, tiamat, Huntress, among others.
The first band's recording, a 3-track demo, was released in Brasil in CD, independently by the name '2012′ in august, and worldwide by Napalm Records, in turquoise, and later, purple vinyl version and by Nuclear Blast in clear, and later, red vinyl version, both entitled as 'Time of Death', which coverart was designed by artist Andrei Bouzikov, who has already worked with many bands previously, such as Municipal Waste.
In october, drummer Fernanda Terra leaves the band due to personal reasons and incompatibility of ideas.
Nervosa ends the year of 2012 with a very positive balance with almost 50 shows made around Brazil, and, among them, playing with bands like Exodus, Raven, Grave, Samael (in the festival Roça N Roll, where the played thanks to a contest the won, which took them to the finals and, after, to play in the festival), Exumer, Artillery.
2013 already starts with full steam for the band: they already played along with Destruction in São Paulo, started a mini tour in the North and Northeast of Brazil, in places they had never played before, signed with the European booking agency The Flaming Arts for a future tour around that continent, and started the recordings for the first full-length which must be out in the middle of this year.
