Impavid Colossus guitarist Marcelo explains
“Unfortunately like the rest of the world [in Brazil], we don’t have the opportunity share our sound live, but we have an awesome plan to promote it on social networks and music platforms with cool people who know what they are doing. The expectations are the best possible. We can’t wait to release the album that comes with a nice balance between the songs and deep lyrics on issues of all human existence”.
Breaking the barriers of genres by mixing punk rock with grunge, hard rock, and metal, whilst always emphasizing harmony. The music is fast, strong, aggressive, brutal and at the same time captivating, tailored to strike a unique balance.

In the middle of 2020, the band’s debut double-single series was released which has since attracted 200,000 streams across digital platforms.
