FDA Rekotz is proud to announce the addition of Chilean death squad THORNAFIRE.
Offering a visceral and ruthless brand of extreme death metal in the vein of early Sepultura, Death and Massacre, THORNAFIRE has established themselves as force to reckoned with through their intense live show and a trio of well-received albums. The band’s fourth full-length will be out in late 2013 on FDA Rekotz. Prepare yourselves for the coming onslaught of high-caliber death metal!
The band has issued a video statement discussing their deal with FDA Rekotz and the addition of drummer Nikko Pagani to the lineup. Check it out HERE.
A video of the song “Malefactor Manifesto” off the band’s 2012 release Eclipse Nox Coagula is now playing at this location.
THORNAFIRE started out in 1998 by the hand of Víctor Mac-Namara with the sole intention of playing Death Metal. A year later two songs were recorded for the Granded for all Sombernessdemo. With that tape and a savage live show the band started to achieve a strong name in the local scene. After a series of line-up changes, an MCD entitled Mortus Tenebrae Surrectus was released in 2001, which received many good reviews from the local and international metal media. With that THORNAFIRE became one of the most promising Chilean extreme metal acts. The recording saw worldwide distribution via the tried and true methods of tape-trading and word of mouth. THORNAFIRE began to gig and tour around Chile and into Bolivia and Argentina. In 2005, the band recorded their debut full-length, Exacerbated Gnostic Manifestation. The album stood out as a milestone in brutality and a masterpiece of hate. It also caught the attention of Incantation’s John McEntee, who signed THORNAFIRE to his label, Ibex Moon Records. The spring of 2007 saw the re-release and worldwide distribution of the debut and, in 2009 the band released Vorex Deconstrucción on Ibex Moon Records. A European invasion soon followed which saw the band appear alongside the likes of Master, Incantation, Deranged and many others at the Obscene Extreme Festival. Since then, THORNAFIRE has shared stages with Slayer, Overkill, Dimmu Borgir, Motley Crue and several other notable acts. In 2012, bassist/vocalist Christian Argandoña joined the fold and Eclipse Nox Coagula was unleashed with critical acclaim and rabid reception from the band’s growing legion of fans. With a deal with FDA Rekotz in place, THORNAFIRE’s quest for global domination continues. Prepare yourselves.
