Cover CD MaestahAt this point in my reviewing career, I’ve learned to expect a lot from Brazilian bands.  Before starting reviews a couple years ago, Sepultura was probably the only Brazilian band I could quickly name, but since then, I’ve come to hear bands like Skin Culture, Doomsday Hymn, and now Maestah, all of which have their own niche in the metal sound and have brought a lot of talent to their genres.

Maestah hails from Curitiba in the state of Parana in southern part of Brazil and has only been a band in its current state for a couple of years.  Originally, Eduardo Pieczarka and Lucas Santana were together in the band Twilight of Time, who released The Pilgrim ep in 2010.  Somewhere along the line, those two added Celso Freyn on vocals who is known for being the vocalist in Stauros, Diego Maciel, and Marlon Roberto (Jarlisson Jaty of Doomsday Hymn has filled in on drums for shows since Marlon left).  Historically, some of these songs may have been taking shape for a couple of years as the band has a video for one version of “The Pilgrim” on their YouTube channel that was recorded in 2012, that is a bit different than the album version.  The album was recorded at Silent Music Studios in Curitiba and was produced by Karim Serri of Doomsday Hymn, which is another Brazilian band to check out.
