Nervosa – “Victim of Yourself” (2014)

Label: Napalm Records

Review by Tony Cannella

Nervosa is an all female thrash metal trio from Brazil. They’ve already been receiving some pretty positive buzz based on their initial 3-song demo released in 2012. Now the band is ready to unleash their debut full-length, “Victim of Yourself” via Napalm Records. Amidst all the female fronted symphonic, folk and power metal it seems like the thrash metal genre has been left behind, well Nervosa is about to change all of that. “Victim of Yourself” is definitely an old school thrash metal record, but having said that, it sounds pretty damn fresh. “Victim of Ritual”features 11-songs and 46-minutes worth of whiplash inducing, hair whipping thrash metal. The songs are aggressive, relentless and brutal. From the opening intro into “Twisted Values” the band strikes hard and fast with a ferocity that is infectious. Songs like “Justice Be Done”, “Wake Up and Fight” and the closing two minute track “Uranio Em Nos” are fine examples of the aural aggression contained within. The end result of “Victim of Yourself” is quite satisfying. Nervosa has proven to be worthy of the praise they’ve been receiving. Make no mistake about it; this is old school thrash for the 21st century.

Rating – 82/100
