Juliana Batista drummer of Brazilian metal band Antidemon, was invited to give her testimony in “Changed”, an evangelistic book with life stories, released in the Netherlands. Check below the testimony of Juliana in full as it is in the book:

My name is Juliana Batista. I was born in São Paulo, Brazil, in a non-Christian family, but in my heart I’ve always felt a strong need to do things in a correct way in every sense. I always felt that there was a better world than the one I lived in and a life different to the one I knew! I wanted something on a higher level… Actually I wanted to get to know God! But things did not happen so quickly. The lack of something that really satisfied my soul led me into a state of deep sadness.

I always liked rock music and pop. There was a time when I listened to them and enjoyed them a lot… And I could identify with a lot of the lyrics and would then let my mind wander off into another world, but I continued being very sad and distressed in my own reality. My family has always been engaged and interested in Eastern religions and cultures and so I inevitably knew some things about these cultures and religions. But they never touched my heart. None of them brought me joy or gave me a real reason to live. For a while I thought that the reason for all of this fear inside me was because I was very shy and reserved. I tried to change… Forcing myself to be different, making more friends and trying to get out more… Then I got into electronic music. I went to a few parties, but the joy I felt through this was deceitful and fleeting. Continue reading »

Batista frontman of Brazilian metal band Antidemon checked in with the following:

Hello friends! Now I have a fan page with almost all the works I’ve painted in the last 20 years. In every picture concerning the work you will find an explanation of the meaning I understand and see in each of them. You will also find right under the name of the work if it is available for sale or if it has already been sold. There are also paintings that illustrated Cds and Dvds of Antidemon. These works have a historical value and that is why they are a little more expensive, but they are also available to whomever.
By Acquiring one of my works, you will be helping directly in the mission of the world and so a missionary with us! I thank everyone for the support and partnership in every initiative and try to go ahead with what we believe. Continue reading »
