Prika Amaral on “Elements of Sin”:

“Elements Of Sin” was one of the first songs that me and Helena composed together. I remember when the riff from the chorus came at the end of 2021 and the lyrics of the chorus came together. We were so excited with this song that we also composed a few parts of the drums at that time. The process of composing of this album was very fun.”


Finally seeing the light of day, Jailbreak is a decisive start of a new era in the band’s history, as it’s the first Nervosa album with guitarist and founding member Prika Amaral on vocal duties, and showcases the new lineup completed by Michaela Naydenova on drums, Hel Pyre on bass and Helena Kotina on guitars.


Among its various themes, Jailbreak explores messages of breaking free from everyone and everything holding you back from doing exactly what you want to do. It encourages the listener to be proud of who they are, to trust in themselves and the strength that lies within them. The album’s lyrical themes comment on our society in a direct, critical manner, with messages delivered through intensely fast-twitching, raw soundscapes.


Prika Amaral on Jailbreak:

I’m very happy with the result of how our new album turned out. This time, we were able to take even more risks and do new things. With two guitars the doors open to a whole new world of possibilities, in fact Nervosa had two guitars in the beginning, but then we decided to go with one guitar for logistical reasons, since it would be easier to move with one less person for tours. Now Nervosa has a much bigger structure that allowed this addition, and we are really enjoying this moment of the band. The process of writing this record was the most fun and brought the most musicality, enriching the band.


Helena Kotina adds:

I think Jailbreak is Nervosa’s most revolutionary record, both musically and lyrically. It was a very challenging process but at the same time very constructive. We were able to take care of every detail until we obtained the best result.”

More from Nervosa:

Jailbreak kicks off with charging “Endless Ambition”, a track previously released in early 2023 that acted as a first harbinger for everything that is about to come on the album. The track immediately showcases the incredibly powerful attitude and talent of Amaral as frontwoman. Raging “Suffocare”, which deals with several aspects of toxic relationships, and “Ungrateful” continue on the path of the intense opening track, before easing into the beautiful, epic intro of “Seed Of Death”. With its philosophical lyrics that explore questions about the never ending cycle of life, the song grabs at an omnipresent issue relevant to all of us. Relentless title track “Jailbreak” attacks with a thrash metal chorus and roaring guitar solos. As a very special treat, Nervosa spice up the intense track “When The Truth Is A Lie” with none other than an impressive guest contribution from legendary Exodus guitarist Gary Holt, whilst Infected Rain/Death Dealer Union vocalist Lena Scissorhands provides another strong guest feature by lending her voice on “Superstition Failed”. Uncontrollable closing track “Nail The Coffin” seals the 13-track album with a forceful thrash banger in true Nervosa style.


On Jailbreak, the band continue their powerful collaboration with Martin Furia, who produced the four-piece’s successful previous records. With this album, Nervosa grace fans with yet another thrash metal masterpiece.
