Bassist/vocalist Fernanda Lira and drummer Luana Dametto (formerly of Nervosa) have joined/formed a new band being called Crypta. Lead guitarist Sonia Anubis (Burning Witches, Cobra Spell) and guitarist Tainá Bergamaschi (ex-Hagbard) round out the group’s lineup.
The news broke earlier today, with the band releasing the following info:
Born in June 2019, CRYPTA is a Brazilian/Dutch Death Metal four-piece, influenced by the old school sub-genres of the style.
The band’s lineup include Fernanda Lira (vocals & bass) and Luana Dametto (drums), both ex-members of Brazilian thrash metal band Nervosa, Sonia Anubis (lead guitars) who plays heavy metal in Burning Witches and Cobra Spell, and Tainá Bergamaschi (guitars), ex-member of Hagbard.
The band is currently working on the songs for their upcoming first release, yet to be recorded and which further details should be announced any time soon.
Last month, Nervosa vocalist Prika Amaral noted that Fernanda and Luana “decided to leave” the band. Prika has since recruited vocalist Diva Satanica (Bloodhunter), bassist Mia Wallace (Abbath, Triumph of Death), and drummer Eleni Nota (Mask of Prospero, Croque Madame) into the fold.
