  1. Review by Gwilym R.

    What can I say!
    It was a true pleasure working with a talent like Marcelo. He is a tremendous drummer and obviously has a great set-up because the quality of the tracks he shared were really top-notch!
    He was able to work very quickly and was patient to understand the vision for the song and deliver against it.
    I would highly recommend!

  2. Review by Max Tomé

    I've been working with Marcelo since 2012, on several projects mainly in the metal genre. But I can assure you he'll put a hell of a performance on ANY given genre and project you have!
    He is one of the most nice and at the same time professional guys in the industry, believe me. And you'll be floored with the outcome of your collaboration with him!
    Can't recommend him enough (as I did in the past!).

  3. Review by Ricardo Pinto

    I've worked with Marcelo for the past 8 years in many different bands and projects. His technique, sensitivity, sound, efficiency, theoretical knowledge and work ethics are of the highest level you can find and his work speaks for itself. If you're looking for someone who can pretty much play anything you throw at him with precision, power, finesse, good taste and a really good sound, look no further. Also, you’d be hard-pressed to work with a nicer person!
