Last month, METAL VRAU participated in the first edition of the Metal Na Lata Online Festival, a solidary event organized by Metal Na Lata website (www.metalnalata.com.br) and broadcasted through its YouTube channel, along with more than 50 great Brazilian, Argentinian and European bands. On that occasion, Rafael Pacheco (guitarist and creator of the METAL VRAU channel), had the vocals of the organizer and responsible for the website/event, Johnny Z, and the exhilarated brazilian metal musicians Ricardo Lima (Scars/Tosco/Chemical Disaster) on second guitar, Marco Nunes (Chaosfear/Eye Of The King) on bass and Herbert Loureiro (Sandman/Sick/Inimigo Territory) on drums, in a powerfully version of the classic “Roots Bloody Roots”, by the Thrash giants Sepultura.
To brighten the work even more, they also had the special performance of the 5 year old dancer and bassist Marco Nunes’ daughter, Eleanor Marie, using indigenous makeup and showing all her unique catchy style!

“It was very important for me and Metal Vrau to participate in Metal Na Lata Online Fest and I feel very honored to have been invited. Playing with all my heavyweights friends from Brazilian Metal Scene, paying homage to the giant Sepultura and, above all, supporting a noble and humanitarian cause, it’s priceless! And brother Johnny did a great job on vocals (laughs)!” Rafael Pacheco

METAL VRAU channel on YouTube based in Sao Paulo, Brazil, founded in May 2018 by musicians, guitarists and longtime friends, Rafael Pacheco and Sandro “Murdok”, in order to enhance the style they love so much, Heavy Metal in all its aspects and subgenres, devoid of prejudice and with good doses of humor. The purpose of the channel is to present not only collaborative videos with great musicians from the Brazilian metal scene and pay homage to national and worldwide giants of Rock/Metal, but also ‘playthroughs’ of self made material from the duo and other bands, interviews with important personalities within the style, special participations, reviews and personal opinions about instruments, all very well produced and maintining respect and extremely good taste. Unfortunately, after three years on the channel, Sandro “Murdok” had to leave amicably to dedicate himself to other personal and professional projects, but Rafael Pacheco will continue with his firm and strong legacy!
