TraumeR’s music is a Heavy / Power Metal combination based on arrangements that make people feel the music inside their souls, and it deeply reflects the way the musicians think and see the world day by day, mixing a lot of feelings with a pinch of self-help themes, magic and mystical sceneries that makes TraumeR bring to reality, every breath of fantasy taken by the listeners.
Experienced in playing concerts in Brazil and overseas, TraumeR also has the commitment to make their fans feel familiar with the songs and rock the metal anywhere they perform a show.
