Thiago Bianchi was born in 1979 in Brazil. When he turned 20 he joined the Metal band Karma and has continued to make music ever since. In 2007 he joined the band Shaman.
Thiago then joined the Brazilian Metal band Noturnall in 2013 and they have released 4 albums since then, “First Night (Live)”, “Noturnall”, “Back to Fuck You Up!” and “Wake Up (Single)”.
That means Thiago is an active member of three different groups at the moment. But now he wants to show the world as a solo artist, what great Metal from Brazil can sound like.
Arena is a project created by veteran vocalist and producer Thiago Bianchi, member of the bands Karma, Shaman and Noturnall, which has the participation of some of the greatest musicians of the Brazilian metal scene!
One of the songs, “Woman in Chains”, is particularly amazing, as it features the amazing vocals of Maria Odette, who is in fact Thiago Bianchi’s mother. Maria Odette has been involved in the music industry since 1978, and she now lent her expertise to her son.
Some participants are: Kiko Loureiro (Megadeth), Mike Orlando (Adrenaline Mob / Noturnall), Aquiles Preister (Noturnall), Felipe Andreoli (Angra), Edu Falaschi (Almah, ex-Angra), Fernando Quesada (Noturnall / Shaman), Junior Carelli (Noturnall / Shaman)
The album is dedicated to a noble cause, and all income received from the sales will be donated to institutions of children with cancer.
It is, in fact, a great release of the Brazilian Heavy Metal scene!
