Metal Vrau brings the modern weight of As I Lay Dying in a new Collab!

In the history of the  METAL VRAU  channel, many collab videos have been made covering Stoner Rock, Heavy Metal, Power Metal, Thrash Metal, Prog Metal, Groove Metal, Hard Rock etc, showing that, for the guitarists and founders of the channel,  Rafael Pacheco  and  Sandro "Murdok"  ,     there is no bad time for those who really appreciate good old Rock / Metal. Be it more classic, more fancy or even more modern, everything within the style is valid. Every musician who wants to grow, must, in addition to studying, always absorb not only the technique of other musicians, but also melodies and influences. Not getting stuck in segments and trying hard to get out of your comfort zone makes you a true musician.

Knowing this, a new collab was launched today in honor of the Californian metalcore band,  As I Lay Dying  . The chosen track was the very heavy  "Overcome"  , present on the sixth studio album,  "Awakened"  , released in 2012.

Check out  "Overcome"  in:

"We have no prejudice and we do not mimic any aspect within Rock and Metal, and this time we decided to beat the hell out!"   Rafael Pacheco

"Heavy metal (Vrau) full of beasts!"   Sandro "Murdok"

METAL VRAU  is a São Paulo channel on YouTube, founded in May 2018 by musicians, guitarists and longtime friends,  Rafael Pacheco  and  Sandro Murdok,  with the intention of not only extolling the style they love so much, Heavy Metal in all its aspects and subgenres, through collaborative videos with great musicians of the Brazilian scene, extremely well produced and with extreme good taste, but also paying due homage to national and world giants of Rock / Metal.

Not only will collaborations be approached, but also a lot of authorial material belonging to the duo and other bands, interviews, special participations, personal opinions about instruments and metal in general.

Rafael Pacheco  , from São Paulo, 32 years old, developer and systems analyst, has been playing the guitar and guitar since he was 14 years old and has already had lessons with six-string masters such as Orival Castelo (guitar) and Homero Bittencourt (guitar). He has been a member of many cover bands from Testament, Iced Earth, Judas Priest, Queensrÿche and also with authorial sound such as InSoulitary (Death Metal). Currently, he plays in the covers bands Sons Of Judas (Judas Priest), Empire (Queensrÿche), and authorial sound Aventh (Melodic Death Metal) and Untrusted, still in their embryonic phase. His guitar influences are big names like Mark Morton, Yngwie Malmsteen, Nuno Bettencourt, Richie Kotzen, Reb Beach, Doug Aldrich, Jon Petrucci, Jason Becker, Marty Friedman, Kiko Loureiro, Edu Ardanuy, Jeff Loomis, Keith Merrow, Ola Englund, among others.

Sandro Murdok  , from São Paulo, 25 years old, producer and quality analyst, fell in love with music when he was 12 years old after some guitar lessons in the church where he attended. Self-taught most of the time, he made the nylon guitar his faithful companion. During his adolescence he was influenced by bands and artists such as Ozzy Osbourne, Bullet For My Valentine, Charliw Brown Jr., Killswitch Engage and Bring Me The Horizon. In 2012, he won his first guitar, moving from nylon to steel, and new influences emerged, for example, Dimebag Darrell (Pantera), Michael Paget (Bullet For My Valentine), Adam D. and Joel Stroetzel (Killswitch Engage), John Browne (Monuments), Mark Holcomb (Periphery) and etc. With the beginning of the Metal Vrau project, together with Rafael Pacheco, he had his first contact with music production and, from there, decided to turn his passion into a profession. The Music Production course at EM&T began the following year, with Fernando Quesada (ANIE, Noturnall, Armored Dawn) as coordinator and teacher. In the same year of 2019, he joined the Thrash Metal band, Trendkill Inc., without forgetting his love for production, opening Rec Station Produtora (  ) with two other producer friends.
