The year is 2010 the location is Sao Paulo, Brazil where guitarist Prika Amaral, drummer Fernanda Terra Earth teams up with bassist and singer Fernanda Lira and form Nervosa.The music is fierce, brutal and riff-based with influences from the classic thrash scene. Fernanda Lira does not use a pick when she plays the bass she uses her fingers just like her childhood idol Steve Harris (Iron Maiden) her early vocal influences were Tarja Turunen (Nightwish) and Micheal Kiske (Helloween) but she changed it more to the Tom Araya (Slayer) and Schmier (Destruction ) direction to suit the style of music.
Prika Amaral grew up in a musical home where her father played guitar. At a young age she studied classical guitar but it was not the style of music that she dreamed about playing, her heart was in hard rock and through years of practice and with influences like Dimebag Darrel (Pantera) Kerry King (Slayer) and Gary Holt (Exodus) she has created her own style.
