asesinoAsesino is a extreme band recurring project of Brujeria guitarist Dino Cazares formed in 2002, which has featured members of Brujeria, Fear Factory, Sepultura, Sadistic Intent and Static-X. “Asesino” is Spanish for “murderer” or “assassin”.

It is not unusual for Asesino to do Slayer covers live, most notably “Angel of Death” or “Raining Blood”. As with Brujeria, the lyrics are sung entirely in Spanish and with the same subject matter of death, violence, and perversion. Guitarist Asesino describes the band as “the new Brujeria.” Asesino also has the tendency of making satirical comments during the show, and when playing Brujeria songs, change the original lyrics to something more fitting. Unlike Brujeria, whose style is a more mid-tempo, bare-bones form of grindcore, they plays an extreme, up-tempo and multi textured form of extreme metal. packed with killer artwork and a powerhouse production.
