    Drop D, band based in Valongo [Porto, Portugal], formed in the Spring of 2001, when Joana Ferreira (vocals), Bruno Cardoso (guitar) and José Daniel Faria (drums), coming from the band Timeless, invited Tito Fonseca (bass), who was at the time playing with Hi-Octane, to participate in this new project, beginning with some cover songs and their first originals. Bruno Cardoso abandoned the project due to personal divergences with members of the band, and André Castro, former musical partner of Tito, came to fulfil his position (guitar & back vocals), in the Summer of that year. He brought the heavier influences that existed previously, but were so far hidden.

    Marina Faria, which had done some back vocals works with the band in some gigs, joined Drop D in May of 2003. In December of that year, the band recorded its first EP, called "Nothing with Anything" (in Echo System Studios, in Barcelos) produced by Rui Santos, Oratory's bass player, which was non-commercially published in January of 2004. The band only gets completed in 2004, with the entrance of Nuno Queirós (as a guitar player), also coming from Hi-Octane.

    The beginning of 2005 was marked by an arrangement established between the band and a big Portuguese music label, which allowed that a demo CD could be distributed in the 40th edition of the well known International Labels Show Midem, in Cannes, France. In that year, the band started to participate in the Raising Legends events. In the Fall of 2005, Drop D returned to the studio to record their new tracks, and they would be non comercially published in December, in the EP "The Black Arrow".

    After 5 years of non stop activity, Drop D chose to stop for a few months (a "stop" with a second place award in the Concurso de Bandas de Valongo in between), to gather new ideas and to prepare the line-up change due to the friendly departure of Nuno Queirós. After some months of search, with several musicians that didn't reach the band expectations, the decision was taken: the entrance of Bruno Falcão Lhano, friend of the band and member of its staff, as a bassist, while Tito Fonseca switched to the guitar.

    In the end of 2008, Joana Ferreira and Tito Fonseca abandon the project: to them, we send best wishes, in music and in life in general. After a long search, Tiago Reis enters Drop D, leaving it shortly after for personal reasons.

    In 2010, Drop D record, in their own Bullstrike Studio, their debut album, "Prologue", which counts with the appearances of Rui Duarte (RAMP) and Cláudio Oliveira (Clueless Inc.), in two of the themes. The album was then mastered by UE Nastasi at Sterling Sound (New York), ending in a mixture of nu, heavy, thrash, progressive rock and metalcore, a powerful and melodic-sounding, led by a strong female voice.

    Over the years, Drop D developed a solid sounding that spread throughout the national territory and in the neighbouring country. In their luggage, they have a long list of guest appearances in concerts in their own name, festivals and top places in competitions (such as the Metal Arena, largest Iberian metal bands contest, in which they reached the final).

    In the year of their 10th anniversary, Tiago Reis joins the band again, and Drop D sign contract with the labels Raising Legends and Raging Planet, editing commercially the long-awaited long-playing first record, which can be found for sale in stores and digital stores around the world. Currently, the band is promoting this ' Prologue ', creating new themes for the upcoming album, and preparing many novelties. Stay tuned...
