1)
Mortal is a -band founded by Jyro Xhan and Jerome Fontamillas. They also pursued a techno influenced project called Jyradelix in San Diego, California, USA. They were a very influential band in the beginning of the 1990s.

In January of 1992 their debut album, Lusis, was released on Intense Records, the metal-division of Frontline Records. Other bands on the label were Die Happy, Tourniquet, Saviour Machine and Mortification. The style, though, was very different from the other bands. The music consisted mostly of samples and electronic sounds, something unheard of in the Christian world at that time. The album didn’t go unnoticed and won the people’s vote for ‘best new band’ at the CCM Update awards. Lusis was produced by Terry Taylor of Daniel Amos.

Currently, Jerome is a member of Switchfoot. Jyro is working for Crystal Lewis’ label Metro One Music as a producer, engineer, keyboard and guitar player for various bands.
