Biography

EDEN SEED is the new band that has, among its members, guitarist GISELE MARIE ROCHA.

GISELE MARIE ROCHA gained notoriety in the media for a non-musical reason: the fact that she is Muslim, practice religion, and always wear niqab (face veil that, combined with other Islamic clothing, leaves only the eyes visible).

GISELE decided to form her own band, with the intention of putting into practice the concept of fusion between heavy/thrash metal (the musical style that has always characterized her career) and eclectic artistic ideals, which always made her interested. This was after she had played in several bands, and had constant presence in the worldwide media channels like Record TV, G1 Portal and Folha de São Paulo Journal (Brazil), New York Post (USA), Daily News and BBC (England), Le Monde (France) and others.

On November 8, 2015, she headlined a benefit concert in support of Syrian refugees who are in Brazil. This show happened in Duque de Caxias (RJ) – Brazil, in an event that was attend by 3,000 people in the audience. Again, the world press published several news about this event, especially Reuters International.

Since then, she created the initial concept of EDEN SEED.

The band’s official release took place on June 29, 2016, in an exclusive show in the traditional ESPAÇO SOM, in São Paulo (Brazil), with opening and participation of the dancer and dance teacher Silvia Aidar and the derbakist Anderson Vaccari. After the first show, EDEN SEED released the single RISING UP, featuring the songs RETURN and SPIRITS IN HELL, and the official RETURN music video, consolidating the name of the band and concluding the year 2016 as the newest revelation of heavy metal Brazilian.

EDEN SEED started 2017 with a new bass player, MATHEUS MANENTE, musical producer and multi-instrumentalist, and a new drummer, MARCOS HENRIQUE.

With this new lineup, the band released MARIA CANDELÁRIA, single with a new version of the traditional carnival “marchinha”, and now they work on the finalization of the production of AGE OF CREATION, the first full album of EDEN SEED, with LUIS HENRIQUE on vocals.

Blending distinct artistic and cultural elements to his powerful thrash metal, full of eclectics musical influences, EDEN SEED always presents unique concerts that are not repeated, which certainly more surprising than the fact that the band has a Muslim guitarist who use niqab.
