I have played drums since I was 19, for the brazilian 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 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 Prods (NZE), and in 2014 we released the 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). 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'm the first woman ever to be interviewed by Sick Drummer Mag from USA on the issue 28.
My band recently released a few official videos of songs from the next upcoming album "Human Decay", going to be released soon in 2021. Extreme and intense drumming that fits the Blackened Death Metal style. Go watch them at
Check out our animated video "Bomber" (Motörhead cover):
I'm influenced by Igor Cavalera, Pete Sandoval, Inferno, Gene Hoglan, Max Kolesne, etc.

    So why did you get started drumming? What was your favorite part of the tune you entered? Last of all, who are some of the drummers who influence your playing? Just asking from the profile questions…….

      I started drumming because there were no drummers in our area , when we founded the band! Then I learnt very quickly then liked it! haha
      My favorite part is the fast and blast beat parts!
      I mentioned the drummers who influence me in my profile: Igor Cavalera, Pete Sandoval, Inferno, Gene Hoglan, Max Kolesne, etc.
