Biography:
Flammea was one of the best female metal bands from Brazil. Born in Brasilia, they were part the Brazil female metal “golden” era, country which gained a spot in the metal world thanks to Sepultura.

The original formation was Daisy Bentim (guitar), Shirley Jovie (vocals), Ana Lima (drums), Rosane Galvão (bass) and Adriana Tuvares (guitar). Soon they released a two song demo entitled “Dark Brain,” and then it began the usual change of lineup.

Adriana went along with her two sisters to the still active death metal band Valhalla, who has edited one album. In opposition to that, Flammea disappeared by the inability to get a record deal.

Earlier, in 1993, Flammea recorded their third demo “First Scream”, with a completely different formation from the original. Only the drummer Ana Lima kept their position, joining Sueli Mazuco (bass), Parma Vania (vocals), with a record very similar to Jovia, Roberta Jacot (guitar) and Neila Abrahão (guitar). This new Flammea outfit didn’t show much differences from the original, incorporating only exaggerated Lu Terra’s flute. This demo came out as a split LP, together with the first demo of contemporary countrywomen Volkana in 2002.

In fact Lu added the keyboards to the last of the Flammea demos, dated in 1994. Neila was then replaced by Renata Lopes.

In late 2006 there were rumours of a flammea comeback, to publish a CD with the Brazil label Dies Irae.

The new incarnation of flammea means a return to the original formation, with their own album and plans to participate in a Brasilia bands compilation, with the bands covering each other. This album will count also with the participation of the all-female bands Volkana and Valhalla.

Few years later, the reunion confirmation is yet to come.
