Describe your music. What makes you unique?
Hardcoredeathmetal. Endrah has an amazing organic mix of several genre styles like Thrash Metal, Death Metal, and Hardcore with many influences. The patterns, song structures, and tempo shifts make Endrah quite unique. The lyrics are very intense and about real themes, not fake subjects.
ENDRAH is for strong minded people who can appreciate very technical music and patterns.
Do you have any particular lyrical themes?
Fighting, politics, economic and social problems. We try to stay in the realm of reality with our lyrics. The subject matter can be dark and brutal, but it is not about fantasy things.

What’s the wildest thing you’ve seen or done at a live show?
In Curitiba, Brazil we played behind a church and at the end of show left lots of kids bleeding and smiling. Another show in Salvador Bahia was so brutal the military police had to enter the mosh pit to regain order of the 5,000 crazy fans when we headlined a major festival on the beach during Carnival. That night was classic. Just a wild night all around. We have some amazing fans and they go hard when we hit the stage.

There is talk of USA, Canada, Europe, Japan, Central America, Mexico, Russia, and other places to tour. It all boils down to the right deals and logistics for the band. We want to spread our message outside of Brazil more this year and beyond. We will start with our three week headline run across Brazil soon.
