!!!HEAVY METAL FROM BRAZIL!!!
We had a conversation with COVA RASA.Enjoy!
Welcome to the FILTHY DOGS OF METAL Webzine.
Tell us a few things about COVA RASA (Members, Starting Year etc).
Hello, currently the line up is: Jayme Danko (Guitars, vocals), Flavio Sallin (Keyboards), Edu Milani (Bass), Daniel Werneck (Drums) and Gustavo Fassino (Guitars). But we're searching for a lead singer, so Jayme Danko can focus only on the guitars. We have some candidates and should announce a name soon.
You have recently released your album ''Cruzando Infernos''. What is the Feedback from your audience as well as from the Press?
The feedback was excellent! To be honest, we didn't expect to get to Europe like it did, cause we wrote the whole album in Portuguese. Next one is gonna be in English.
Do you prefer Vinyl, Tape, CD or Digital Format and why is that?
We're crazy about CD's and some of the members still collect to this day.Your music style is Heavy Metal. Which are your main influences (Favourite Artists / Bands etc.)
Oh...there are many ! We come from different backgrounds in many styles of metal, so that mix ended up being Cova Rasa's mojo.
Which things, do you think, a Band should sacrifice in order to succeed? Have you ever sacrificed anything in your life for a better future of your Band?
Great question. Yes, I have and believe the whole band has. In our opinion, the hardest thing to sacrifice is actually money, cause most bands don't have it and you gotta invest in your work, which hopefully will become your legacy.
Describe your ideal live show as a performance Band. Have you already experienced that?
A passionate audience singing our songs. Can't think of anything better than that.Which attributes, do you think, that a new Heavy Metal Band should have in order to gain identity and be unique?
Tough one. A lot of bands and musician tend to sound like their influences. Just gotta try to do it your way.
Do you believe that Bandcamp and other Digital Platforms help the new Heavy Metal Bands? Which, do you think, is the ideal way for a Band to promote its work?
We believe every digital platform can help lots of bands around the world. That's how you discovered us !
Tell us a few things about the New Underground Metal Scene in Brazil (Bands, Fanzines, Webzines, Metal Clubs etc.)
It used to be bigger, for sure, but it's still alive. Hope we can help bring the flame back !
Do you know anything about the Hellenic Metal Scene?
To be honest, no.What are your future plans?
To record a new album in English, with our new lead singer and we're already working on new material... and starting touring around the globe !
Thank you very much for your time & Keep up the good work! The closure is yours
Thanks so much for your invitation. It's very good to be recognized. Hope to see you guys on the road !
