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 this type of collaboration be approached, but also a lot of their own authorial material, interviews, special participations, personal opinions about instruments and metal in general.

Rafael Pacheco , born in São Paulo, 32 years old, a 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 already 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, 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.
