Brujeria's biography

Brujeria is an international grindcore, deathgrind, and metalcore band. Their name comes from a Spanish language word meaning "witchcraft". Their Satanic, narcotic, and masked attitude have been their passport to success, although they have recently performed live at locations across the United States and Latin America. Their songs, which are sung entirely in Spanish, are focused on Satanism, anti-Christianity, sex, immigration, narcotics smuggling, and politics and also include lyrics about killing Whites.

Brujeria is 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.

Dino Cazares and Nick Barker quit Brujeria on January 26, 2004. The only remaining members of Brujeria left are Juan Brujo and Shane Embury. Brujeria has recently resurfaced with two new members and will begin touring soon. Asesino's band is still going strong, and Asesino himself describes the band as the new Brujeria, because he claims that Juan Brujo was the reason Brujeria demised.
