Vivalma is a progressive metal band, formed and based in São Paulo (Brazil). Its line-up consists of singer Marco Petucco, guitarist Odilon Gonçalves, keyboardist Gus Martins, bassist Raphael Filt and drummer Lello Araújo, musicians with different musical backgrounds and influences, that make Vivalma's compositions something unique.
The band as it is today was established in 2009, after some line-up changes. Bands like Pain of Salvation, Muse, Rush, Yes, Porcupine Tree, Opeth, Dream Theater and Symphony X are some of the main influences in Vivalma's music.
In 2011, Vivalma started to work on its first full length album, Human Effect, which was produced, engineered, mixed and recorded by Brendan Duffey and Adriano Daga, at Norcal Studios (Angra, Almah, André Matos, Torture Squad, Deventter, Furia Inc.), in São Paulo.
On november 21st, 2013, the band released Human Effect for free digital streaming, as well as its digital sale on CD Baby, Amazon, iTunes and other online stores.
The band is currently promoting the album both on and offline, as well as in live concerts - including a memorable concert at Manifesto Rock Bar, one of the main venues for underground music in Latin America.
