Santiago, Chile (1993 – present)

Coprófago (from greek, copro: shit, fago: eat) was formed in June of 1993 in Santiago, Chile by Sebastián Vergara (guitar, vocals), Pablo Álvarez (guitar) and two friends of theirs. In November of 1994 they recorded their first demo, a 4 songs tape featuring probably the youngest kids in scene (their average age was about 15 at the release time). Although the demo didn’t have a good reception from the press, that tape is now sold out. In March of 1995, Marcelo entered as the definitive drummer. With this line-up they played during 1995 and 1996.

In 1997 they recorded their second album, “Images of Despair “. Before finishing the recording, the bassist left due to musical differences. Felipe Castro, old friend of Pablo and Sebastián, took his place and finished the recording. The music of this LP is faster than any previous material, but some progressive elements are present, due to Pablo´s growing interest in at that time.

In band’s eyes, some of the songs in that album required a different type of voice as a complement to Sebastián’s low growls, so although IOD was almost finished in early 1998, it wasn’t released because they spent several months proving vocalists without success.

In December of ‘98 the promo single “Empty Creature ” was released, featuring Pablo’s first attempt on vocal duties. The full length would come out in September of the following year with Pablo as a definitive singer, making of Coprofago a 2-frontmen band. The response to IOD from the Metal press & media was excellent.

    É uma pena que a banda esteja desmembrada. Soube vários membros estão na Europa. Só me resta procurar os projetos/bandas atuais deles =]

    they could do without the shit-sounding keyboards on their jazzier songs. denying that they have immense talent would be plain ignorant.

    Probably the most under-rated band on the planet.

    Thanks... I agree, but nevertheless the name fits their sound in some way I think... it sounds so dry and weird (the heavy parts, that is)... I can't really find words for it.

    Coprofago es de las pocas bandas Chilenas de Metal Progresivo (Hay varias) que mezcla de forma tan GENIAl el Death Growling con Prog Metal... Hay varias bandas Chilenas de Prog Metal buenas... Matraz, Zydra, Mr. Hyde, Octopus... etc... Pero ninguna hace "¡¡¡ARGHHHH!!!" como ustedes ¡Vamos Death-Math-Progressive-Metal-Fusion Chileno!

    Well... yes, "Coprofago" does mean "Someone who eats excrements"... but i don`t think that the name represents the band Literally... LOL, i mean... i think the name represents the pathological aspect of the word... "someone so mentally ill that he has that symptom" Anyway.... Coprofago is an amazing band... the name doesn`t matter

    Doesn't Coprofago translate to something like "crap eater"? Or am I terribly wrong there? :D
