The powerfull Brazilian Neo Thrash Metal band VALVERA have released a special video on their official YouTube channel, commemorating the first year release of the band’s latest album, highly acclaimed and voted one of the best albums of the year by fans and specialized media, “Cycle of Disaster”.
Due to all the positive reviews from around the world, Glauber Barreto (vocals/guitar), Rodrigo Torres (guitar), Gabriel Prado (bass) and Leandro Peixoto (drums) got a huge worldwide exposure that, through a lot of work and even with the lack of concerts due to the #covid19 pandemic, allowed the band to participate in several online festivals, many interviews, lives, performances of their songs on radio and web radios in more than 50 countries and even participation in TV programs, such as the program Revista de Sabado (TV TEM), a subsidiary of giant Rede Globo, which covers 50% of the territory of the State of Sao Paulo, reaching 318 municipalities and with the potential to impact up to 8.6 million viewers! It’s success that talks, isn’t it?
Recorded at Dual Noise Studio, in Sao Paulo, “Cycle Of Disaster” was produced by the band together with producer Rogerio Wecko, also responsible for mastering, mixing and sound engineering, with cover art by renowned designer Marcelo Vasco (Slayer, Machine Head, Kreator) and was released in August 2020 via Brutal Records (USA and Canada), Plastic Head (Europe) and Voice Music (Brazil).
“This album is full of concepts, approaching various tragedies, disasters and catastrophes that are part of Brazilian history in a way never seen before. We brought up deep themes that, despite the historical and local content, are still modern and up-to-date”, explained Glauber Barreto. “Besides the lyrical part, this work is more evolved, heavy and modern than the previous albums, so, without any fear, we decided to take a risk, exploring even more aspects of metal and working with different tunings on guitars and bass. We are stepping into new territories, but we have not lost our identity” added Rodrigo Torres.
The latest music video for “The Damn Colony”, a track from “Cycle Of Disaster” and based on the horrendous history of the Colonia de Barbacena Hospital (MG), known as the “Brazilian Holocaust”, reached the incredible mark of almost 30,000 views in four months!
