Band formed in the city of Belém do Pará in the year 2010 by Hugo Andrey. Having a very strong taste for heavy metal bands, Hugo Andrey also played and an old and well-known band on the local and national scene called Retaliatory (death / thrash), decided to form THUNDERSPELL after leaving the Retaliatory.
At the beginning of the band there were many changes of members, which was natural because THUNDERSPELL sought people who identified with the musical proposal of the same. After a few years of searching, the band finds stability with the entrance of experienced musicians coming from other bands of the local scene of the metal paraense. The band was formed by Bruno Tavares (guitar), Leo Rodrigues (vocals), Bruno Gibson (bass), Paulo Wallace (drums) and Hugowar Andrey (guitar).
At the end of 2012 THUNDERSPELL released a demo CD with 4 songs, and this demo provided the band to perform a mini tour in 2013 by the state of SP, playing in 4 cities (Guarulhos, Santa Gertrudes, Indaiatuba and Campinas). Even with little training time THUNDERSPELL has already gained a great recognition within the Heavy Metal scene. In 2014 the band had an agenda of 25 shows, playing in several cities throughout the state of Pará, Macapá and Maranhão. THUNDERSPELL’s maturation and professionalism provided the band with the opening of some international heavy metal bands such as Skull Fist (CAN), Enforcer (SUE), Steelwing (SUE), Tank (ING), Angra (BRA) and UDO (ALE).
In 2015, THUNDERSPELL independently released the first OFFICIAL CD entitled BATTLE SCREAM with 9 (nine) copyrighted songs. As a way to promote the BATTLE SCREAM CD, in the same year the band released their first video clip (Shadow Zone) and in less than a year exceeded 10,000 views on YouTube, this is a significant mark for a band from the Underground scene and shows that band is on the rise. So much so that THUNDERSPELL has gained space in several radios specialized in Heavy Metal scattered around the world, being always in the programming of radios of countries like USA, CANADA, MEXICO, GUATEMALA, GERMANY, BELGIUM, SPAIN, GREECE, FRANCE, PORTUGAL, ENGLAND, JAPAN AND AUSTRALIA.
In December 2016, THUNDERSPELL was invited to play in the first edition of MANIACS METAL MEETING, one of the biggest Brazilian heavy metal festivals, held in RIO NEGRINHO – SC.
