Juliana Novo


I have played extreme drums since I was 19, for the brazilian Blackened Death Metal band CRUCIFIXION BR. I’m self taught and left handed, having a peculiar technique similar to open hand style. About six months after starting to play, I was already on my first gig with my band, in 1999. I’ve played thousands of gigs and festivals in Brazil and toured Europe for the first time in 2015. Already shared the stage with KRISIUN, DARK FUNERAL, GAMA BOMB, BESATT, FLESHLESS, etc. We released a live Demo-CD in 2000, 2 Demo-CDs in 2002, an EP in 2011 via Satanica Prods (NZE), the first album “Destroying The Fucking Disciples Of Christ” in 2014 via HPGD Prods (USA), Shinigami Records (BRA), tape version by Serpent’s Eye Recs (NLD), and in 2021 we released the second album ‘Human Decay’ via Shinigami Recs (BRA). This video is from a track off this album. We have been featured in music compilations around the world, such as Brazilian Female Drummers Comp by Hi Hat Girls Mag and Brutal Beatings XII by Sick Drummer Mag from USA. I’m the first woman ever to be interviewed by Sick Drummer Mag on the issue 28.
I’m influenced by Igor Cavalera, Pete Sandoval, Inferno, Gene Hoglan, Max Kolesne, etc.
