Biographie

Krisiun (Latin for « seers of abomination ») formed in 1990, by three brothers, vocalist / bassist Alex Carmargo, guitarist Moyses Kolesne and drummer Max Kolesne. (Alex uses his mother’s maiden name).

The band is heavily influenced by the debut albums of Sodom, Kreator, Morbid Angel and Slayer. Their violent lyrics and very fast musical tempo makes them one of the most eminent « extreme death metal » bands in the world today.

They released two demos and then moved to São Paulo in 1995 where people already started to notice the budding talent of the band. Shortly after the move their second guitarist Altemir Souza left the band and returned to Porto Alegre (where he died of a motorbike accident in 2002).

The Unmerciful Order EP (their only « major » recording featuring a second guitarist, namely Mauricio Nogueira of Torture Squad) established the band as a cult act, and that status was further confirmed by the release of their debut album Black Force Domain (now as a trio) in 1995. The following albums continued to improve their brutal and uncompromising approach to death metal.

All the three founding band members are brothers (Kolesne), although one uses his mother’s surname (Camargo). They have toured extensively through North America, South America and Europe (recording their first official DVD while in Poland).

The name derives from what is purported to be the Latin for ‘seer of abomination’[citation needed], as opposed to from a sea on the moon (Mare Crisium) which is widely wrongly believed to be the case.

In February-March 2007, the band toured North America with Unleashed, Belphegor and Hatesphere. May-June 2007 the band spent on the road through Europe alongside Immolation and Grave. Further roadwork through the first 2 weeks of September Krisiun tours Northern Europe, last 2 weeks of September they tour Russia on the Flaming Arts Festival tour. October 2007 saw Krisiun touring Poland and the Balkans extensively with Vader, Incantation and Rotting Christ.

In April-May 2008, the band recorded the new disc in Stage One Studios in the city of Borgentreich, Germany. The production was made by Andy Classen who had worked with the Brazilians in the album Conquerors of Armageddon and AssassiNation.

The new album was given the name Southern Storm and the launch in Europe is scheduled for July 21, 2008 via Century Media Records. The disc will bring 12 new tracks and a version for « Refuse/Resist », the classic of Sepultura originally launched in the album Chaos A.D…
