METAL VRAU has just launched its newest 'collab' with great names in national Rock / Metal, and the choice of the time was the parents of Heavy Metal, but in one of its incarnations that generated, and still generate, many controversies, heated discussions and comparisons with their predecessors. We are talking about the English of the great and unmatched BLACK SABBATH , with the track "Headless Cross" , from the eponymous album originally released in 1989, which featured the vocals of Tony Martin and the powerful drums of the late Cozy Powell (ex-Rainbow).
Regardless of the taste of each one, it is undeniable that the METAL VRAU version made it beautiful and that Mr. Tony Iommi, Tony Martin, former bandmates and even Cozy Powell, wherever he is, would be honored and happy with this tribute.

METAL Vrau is a Paulistano YouTube channel, founded in May 2018 by the musicians, guitarists and longtime friends, Rafael Pacheco and Sandro Murdok, in order to enhance the style they love, the Heavy Metal in all its forms 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 of the Brazilian metal scene and pay homage to national and world giants of Rock / Metal, but also 'playthrough' of the authorial material of the duo and other bands, interviews with important personalities within style, special participations, reviews and personal opinions about instruments, all very well produced, with respect and extreme good taste.
Rafael Pacheco , born in São Paulo, 32 years old, developer and systems analyst, has been playing the guitar and guitar since he was 14 years old and has had lessons with masters of the six strings such as Orival Castelo (guitar) and Homero Bittencourt (guitar). He has been part of many cover bands from Testament, Iced Earth, Judas Priest, Queensrÿche and, also, authorial sound like 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 at the age of 12 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, Charlie 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), 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 ( www.recstation.com.br ) with two other producer friends.
