Brujeria

brujeriaBrujeria is an extreme metal band. Their name comes from a Spanish word meaning “witchcraft”. Their Satanic, narcotic, and masked attitude have been their green-card to success, although they have recently performed live at locations across the United States and Latin America. They have been nominated at the Latin Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album in 2000. Their songs, which are sung entirely in Spanish, are focused on Satanism, anti-Christianity, sex, immigration, narcotics smuggling, politics and also include lyrics about killing white people (despite having a vast majority of white members in the band) so it is very likely tongue-in-cheek.

Brujeria are admittedly a side-project of founding member and Asesino stalwart Dino Cazares, and has featured artists such as Billy Gould, Nicholas Barker, Raymond Herrera, Jeff Walker, and Shane Embury. They perform under pseudonyms and portray themselves as a Latino band consisting of drug lords, concealing their identities due to being wanted by the FBI. Their lineup has changed over time, however, and could be different at any point in time. According to Metalunderground.com, it is expected for a 2009 release. In March 2008, the band debut a new song “Debilador”, which may appear on the new album.
