Bio:

Biek Yohaitus began his musical studies at the age of 11 on the piano, by the influence of his mother Elizabeth, a professional piano player. He also played the drums and bass, instrument that he began to really dedicate himself at the age of 20.
In 2002, he releases his first record: “Sin After Sin” with Sinrise, band in which he worked together with Alex Pasquale.
Also, at this same time, he started to work as a transcripter of the magazine Cover Baixo, were he met Johnny Moraes, that used to do this same job at Cover Guitarra, another magazine that belonged to the same publishing company.
Having studied with the great masters of bass in Brazil and with his technical abilities well evolved, Biek felt the need to study the music as a whole. So he enrolled at Alcântara Machado Faculty of Arts (UniFaam) at the classical composition course. So, in that way new compositional ideas took form in his mind.
Hevilan had already released the EP “Blinded Faith”, and was already touring the country when songs like “Minus is Call”, “End of Time” and “Son of Messiah” were made. This tunes had an extra ingredient, like four voice chorals and, later on, a string quartet in “Loneliness”.
Nowadays, Biek Yohaitus teaches at Melodia School, in São José dos Campos/SP, and he is preparing himself to tour again for the support of “The End of Time” album, to make workshops and master classes in his instrument, the bass, and composition.

He is also composing new material for the next Hevilan record, and prepares a sonbook, with the commented transcription of all bass lines of “The End of Time”.

The good exposition he had at the time, made Hevilan invite Rafael to join them in 2006, playing through 4 brazilian states, on the “Blinded Tour”. At the time, some difficulties with the band a Rafael´s agenda, did not make possible for him to join the band as a permanent member.

Time went on, and Rafael followed doing lots of shows and recordings, until the invitation to become a member of the band, came again in 2013. After a brief period of experience and some shows, he is announced to substitute Aquiles Priester, on the second semester of 2014.
