Biography

Burgener was born in 1973 in a small village called Ried-Brig in the Swiss Alps. Music had played a big part in his life as long as he can remember. At the age of six he got his first tape recorder as a gift from his parents. He recorded melodies he heard on the radio with it and played to them on a flute. To the surprise of his mother, he played a second voice to the first recorded on tape.

In 1981 Burgener got a saxophone. He took jazz lessons from 1983 to 1990 with Alex Rüedi. During that time, he secretly listened to his older brothers’ KISS, AC/DC and Meat Loaf records and later on bought his first Black Sabbath album. It was time to Rock. After that, Slayer followed with their album „reign in blood“, the most brutal, aggressive album ever done. From that point on, everything changed. No longer interested in taking jazz lessons, he decided to join a band called Malevolence, which played a kind of a Swedish Death/Trash Metal. After a demo and some live shows he left Malevolence to join Damnatory, his local heroes. With Damnatory, Mario recorded a Mini CD called “Docta Ignorantia” and did many live gigs. But after two years this wasn’t fulfilling anymore because working constantly with four other guys proved to be very difficult.
