Ancesttral / Bio

Thrash Metal band from São Paulo, Brasil.

Helleluiah... The "famous unknown" became one of the leading bands of Thrash/Heavy Metal from Brazil!

Comparisons with great names of heavy music, full touring schedule and favorable reviews in Brazil and abroad have caused the work to elevate the name Ancesttral in the Brazilian scene. This fact has been proven by the winning of several awards as of the best of 2007 with the album "The Famous Unknown" and in 2012 with the EP "Bloodshed and Violence".

Musically, the references come from the likes of Metallica and White Zombie, but because of the background of the musicians, also follows the Thrash Metal school practiced in the late 1980s and early 1990s, such as Fight, Testament, Megadeth and Slayer. However, the group has been adding new elements to the sound, both from Traditional Heavy Metal bands as well as more contemporary, like Godsmack and Disturbed.

Formed by Alexandre Grunheidt (vocals and guitar), Leonardo Brito (guitar), Renato Canonico (bass) and Denis Grunheidt (drums), Ancesttral prepares its anticipated second album, to be released in the second half of 2013.
