Brazilian Black/Death Metal band formed in 1996, in the south of Brazil, renewed the brazilian metal scene with the aim of creating an original, diabolic and brutal Black Metal, mixed with old school Death Metal and having also influence from the 80’s thrash, while keeping their dark essence. The band’s name ‘CRUCIFIXION’ was chosen by Lord Grave War, inspired by the name of a SEPULTURA song.
In 2004 they’ve moved to Porto Alegre, constructing since then a big experience in concerts in Brazil, taking part of diverse festivals as the headliners, and supporting KRISIUN in their last show of the ASSASSINATION Tour in 2007. Also in 2011 they have supported DARK FUNERAL together with irish thrashers GAMA BOMB on the Satanic War Tour in Brazil. In 2013 their drummer has moved to São Paulo, waiting for the band to relocate aswell.
The band has previously released in their hometown, Rio Grande, two demo-CD’s in 2002, named ‘In The Shadows Of The Obscurity’ and ‘Diabolical Profecies’, having swedish musician Jan Felipe Queiroz a.k.a. Den Rode Med Horn (x-bassist of swedish dark ambient band ‘MZ.412’) as their bassist. These demos have received good reviews in metal mags around the world. Still in 2002 they took part on the compilation ‘Metal Crusader’ by Radio Muda from SP, being the spotlight in other metal radios and reaching the audience outside southern american boundaries.
