Brazilian Death/Grind metal band Antidemon has signed a contract with the American label Vision Of God Records for the reissues of the albums “Demonicido,” (1999) “Anillo De Fuego” (2002) and “Satanichaos,” (2009) as well as for a BRAND NEW ALBUM, which is to be recorded soon.
“This is a great achievement for us. Releases and reissue sets are due to start in late May 2017. The reissues will have a renewed layout and bonus tracks. We are asking for support from our friends and brothers for all these actions that Vision Of God Records will be carrying out. These releases might also come in vinyl at some point. Thanks to everyone who have always supported us. This story continues.”.
Antidemon started in January 1994 in the city of São Paulo in Brazil.
The band’s style was developed along the years and fans define it as a mixture of Death Metal, Grind Core and some other styles. The strong themes taken on and outstanding musicianship merged little by little with the band’s charisma and personality to make Antidemon a global reference for its style.
Antidemon has also become considerably well-known for its tireless series of shows all around Brazil and many countries on several continents.
After the release of two quite successful demos, the band put out their first album “Demonicido,”in late 1998. Their next album “Anillo De Fuego”, recorded live during a tour in Mexico, appeared only in 2002.
Vocalist, bassist and founder Batista is the only remaining member from the original lineup of a band which has seen many lineup changes although the objective of the band has remained the same. In 2006 Juliana was clearly established as Antidemon’s drummer, adding some personality to the band. That same year Maurício Cebalho became the band’s guitarist, remaining for 3 years.
The band’s third album “Satanichaos” competently produced by Tchucka Junior, came out in March 2009. The album was well-received and opened doors to an ongoing world tour unprecedented in the the band’s history.
The band has done as many as 10 shows in every one of the countries on this tour. Shows have been played everywhere from pubs all the way up to renowned festivals in countries such as Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Portugal, Spain, England, Denmark, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Norway, Venezuela, Colombia, Paraguay and Argentina, in this way gaining worldwide recognition and responding to an appeal from the public spread all around the world.
In March 2010, the band received Luís Oliveira as its newest and most recent guitarist, at a special moment…
Just about to complete “two decades” of existence, Antidemon with much desire and in the middle of a schedule filled with live shows, is preparing a new album. The band with much dedication aims to offer a well-produced CD as a present to such a faithful and loyal public. A public of very different languages and cultures, who has Antidemon as something in common in their hearts, and therefore deserves the band’s best.
So get ready… Hell remains in ruins… Its residents continue to be taken away… And the Name which is above all other names continues to be proclaimed…
Until the END comes…
