The Brazilian Melodic Death/Thrash Metal band SOPHIE’S THREAT was formed in 2021 in Sao Paulo by musicians Tiago Carteano (drums) and Ricardo Oliveira (guitar). Baptized with this name as a reference to Robot Sophia, the first humanoid robot to receive citizenship from a country, in this case Saudi Arabia, developed by Hanson Robotics, in Hong Kong, capable of reproducing 62 facial expressions and designed to learn, work among humans, and adapt to our behaviors. When asked in an interview if it would destroy humanity, it surprised everyone by saying ‘yes’!
From this concept came the idea for the band’s name, a way its members found to criticize how fast technological growth can destroy its creator without thinking about its consequences.
Boasting a bombastic sound, vibrant and striking riffs, bold lyrics that face the present day and a competent mix between Thrash and Melodic Death Metal, the band unleashes a lot of efficiency, seriousness and quality in their first official record, the single “Infernal Manipulation”.
