Ophiolatry is a Extreme brutal death metal band from Brazil.
OPHIOLATRY forms with members Jhorge "Dog" Duarte (Drums), Antonio Cozta (bass), Fabio Zperandio (Guitars) and Tiago Nunes (Vocals).
The band soon gains a following in the Brazilian extreme music scene by creating a sinister and phantasmagoric live atmosphere.
The demo "OPPOSITE MONARCHY" is recorded and interest in the band leads to a split with Ancestral Malediction on MUTILATION Records.
"OPPOSITE MONARCHY" is included on RELAPSE Records compilation
"BRAZILIAN ASSAULT" exposing European and North American metal
fans to the band.
The band signs with North American label EVIL VENGEANCE RECORDS. Enlisting the production of Tchelo Martins (KRISIUN, ABHORRNCE),
the band enters renowned underground Brazilian studio DA TRIBO to record the full-length "ANTI-EVANGELISTIC PROCESS". This album wa mastered by Erik Rutan (HATE ETERNAL) and features art by Desmond Sia (IMPIETY, PROFANATICA).
"ANTI-EVANGELISTIC PROCESS" is released to critical acclaim in the US.
Tiago Nunes leaves the band for personal reasons and is replaced
by Antonio Cozta on vocals. This change in line-up further
dedicated and unified the band to play many live shows across Brazil in
support of the album.
