Rising up from the gritty and chaotic streets of the world's second largest megatropolis, Sao Paulo, Brazil, Project46 has been shredding up the local metal scene in South America's largest city for the past few years.

Project46 has been receiving serious acclaim and accolades for their two albums; 2011's Doa a Quem Doer and 2014's Que Seja Feita a Nossa Vontade, which stunned both fans and critics alike with it's controversial lyrics and volatile sound.
