Introducing: Alchemia

Brazilian horror metal collective Alchemia have honed a fascinatingly dark sound that fuses heavy black and death metal influences with dramatic symphonic elements, classical orchestration and gothic synths.

Introducing: Hemmera

Until now, we’ve only ever covered one band from Brazil and no metal bands from the country. However, Ponta Grossa newcomers Hemmera have well and truly put the nation’s scene on our map with their intoxicating fusion of metal, electronica, trance and orchestral elements, plus the contrast of screamed vocals and melodic choruses.
