I have been playing drums since I was 19, for the brazilian Blackened Death Metal band Crucifixion BR. I'm self taught and left handed, having a peculiar & brutal technique, similar to open hand style. Six months later I was already playing in my first gig with this band, in 1999. I've played in many gigs and festivals in Brazil and have toured Europe 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 through Satanica Productions (New Zealand), and in 2014 we released the first full-length album 'Destroying The Fucking Disciples Of Christ' in the USA through HPGD Productions, in Brazil through Shinigami Records, and tape version by Serpent's Eye Recs (Netherlands). This album received lots of great reviews, and we have been featured in many music compilations around the world, such as the first Brazilian Female Drummers Comp by Hi Hat Girls Magazine and Brutal Beatings XII by Sick Drummer Magazine from USA.
I am the first woman ever to be interviewed by Sick Drummer Magazine from USA on the issue 28.
Currently working on Crucifixion BR next album Human Decay, to be released sometime in 2020. Heavy and intense stuff that fits more into the Blackened Death metal style.
My inspiration comes from metal drummers such as Igor Cavalera (I am called female Igor), Pete Sandoval, Lombardo, Gene Hoglan, Hellhammer, Inferno, Max Kolesne.. Follow me @juliananovoakadarkmoon
