Pandemic Times

Drummer performs work with a range of varieties of musical styles and covers of Evanescence, Inocentes, Tina Turner, The Cure, Tokyo, Dead Or Alive and others

Drummer Aquiles Priester answered the requests of his followers and fans and released the album “PsychOctopus: Pandemic Times”, by TVMaldita, with all versions recorded during the Covid-19 pandemic. From Tina Turner to Dragonforce, from Inocentes to Iron Maiden, from Maroon 5 to The Cult, would you imagine Aquiles Priester playing Pop, Punk or brasilian rock bands someday? Because that’s exactly what the musician delivers with your friends and partners in national and international music.

Listen to “PsychOctopus: Pandemic Times”:

With bands formed for each song, drummer Aquiles Priester (W.A.S.P., Edu Falaschi, Hangar) surprises with versions of songs by Brazilian bands from the eighties, as well as Rock and Heavy Metal classics. Among the participations are names like Supla, Clemente Tadeu, Liminha, PJ, among many other internationally renowned artists. In addition to participating in the collabs, Cristiano Wortmann, Júnior Carelli, Raphael Dafras and Vanessa Lockhart went on tour with Aquiles in 2022 to perform these songs live and it seems that more shows should be scheduled for 2023.

Aquiles Priester talks about “PsychOctopus: Pandemic Times”:
