Have you heard of the Colombian Death Metal legend, Masacre? They're on the road since 1988 and have released many demos, compilations and a split. Now they're releasing their forth full length album... more
REVIEW 'TOTAL DEATH' BY Live 4 Metal (James Young)
Total Death’ is the fifth real album from Masacre (before the more pedantic of you ask, there is only one ‘s’ - they’re Columbian), amongst several other demos and mini albums recorded in the band’s seventeen year existence, and it is, by any Death Metal standards, a corker... more
REVIEW 'TOTAL DEATH' BY Metal Reviews (Jason Jordan)
Brutal death metal incumbents Masacre have returned to office for the first time in many years, and Total Death is quite an accomplishment.

MASACRE & NEUROSIS IN BOGOTA

REVIEW 'TOTAL DEATH' BY Voices from the Darkside
It doesn't really matter if you like 'em or not, but you definitely gotta respect a band that's been around for 17 years already and never sold out to the mainstream! Colombia's very own MASACRE (not to be mixed up with the Florida bunch that gets spelled with a double "s") is one of those bands... more

The band is so satisfied with the quality achieved because it reaches all the expectations the band had and gives all the professional quality all of our fans deserve. The sound is better than the previous and excellent "Muerte Verdadera Muerte" and goes farther in our musical approach as a more brutal and devastating Death Metal, clearly defined by the title of the album "Total Death". The next step will be mixing and mastering the CD by a well-known musician and producer of the Death Metal scene of the world to achieve the best sound posible. We hope the CD will be out in August or September and the fans could get this Death Metal piece at the stores. You could see some pictures of the recording session at the photos section in this web site.

Death Metal forever
Slaves of Death
Wrath Intense Pain

There is a new year beginning but first of all we want to say thank you to all of you who made 2002 a year so special for us. We were very glad to visit our neighbor countries Ecuador and Venezuela. In Ecuador we played in Quito a great show and we gave everything of us, and the fans were incredible. We want to thank all the people who made possible that meeting with our fans, the promoters, magazines, radio stations, etc which played our music and interviewed us letting us get in contact with all the deathbangers there.
In Venezuela it was the fourth time we played there since 1993. Every time we go there we are surprised with the fans who enjoy death metal more and more. We played with two great bands like Kraken and Arkangel, both bands inspired us to play the beast. Thanks again in Venezuela to all the people involved in the show, our best wishes to you.
During last year we also toured in Colombia, playing two times in Bogota, Armenia, Bucaramanga, Cucuta, Caldas and ending with two shows in our city Medellin, playing of course in front of the fans born in the most violent country of the world. Thanks a lot to all the people who contacted MASACRE and made everything possible for us, and thanks to all the bands we played with, you are great, but specially thanks to you the fans.
This year 2003 promises too many good things for our band, we will be recording our next CD called TOTAL DEATH singing the lyrics in english because we want all the world to undestand what is happening here, it will be a devastating and brutal CD of pure DEATH FUCKING METAL!!!
OK friends see you on the road!!!
