Internal Suffering

BiografieINTERNAL SUFFERING was born in November 1996 from the ashes of their previous band SUFFER as a cuartet when Fabián (Vocals), Leandro (Guitars), Andrés (Bass) & Jorge (Drums) decided to play an even faster, heavier & more brutal Death Metal style.

1996 were entirely dedicated to play as many shows as they could with some of the best colombian bands. Also, in March ´97 the band had the chance to play along with the respected underground US band INCANTATION during their small tour in Colombia, receiving a great acclamation from the audience. After this show, Fabián (Vocals) was kicked out of the band and was inmediately replaced by Fabio.

In September 1997, colombian Death Metal label CLINIC RECORDS offered the band to open for the cult Thrash/ Death Metal band SODOM during their world tour ´97, which meant the biggest live-audience for the band at the moment and in the best place of Medellin, in front of 4.500 people. The band was acclaimed again, receiving very good critics & reviews, establishing as the most brutal, devastating band ever to emerge from Colombia. In the music channel MTV was catalogued as one of the most intense & brutal southamerican bands. A couple of months after this killer show, Jorge (Drums) was kicked out of the band due to irreconciliable musical differences, so drums duties were taken over by Edwin.

In March ´98 the band entered the studio again to record their first album, but the result wasn´t satisfactory due to the lack of experienced engineers & professional recording studios, so the band decided to wait some more time till they found a proper place to record the album. After playing some shows and rehearsing constantly, the band decided to recruit Fabio on Drums in replace of Edwin.

1999 was the time to enter the studio once again with the intention to record their long awaited CD debut "Supreme Knowledge Domain". This time the result couldn´t be better so the band decided to send a sample of the recording to one of the most important Death Metal labels worldwide REPULSE RECORDS/ QABALAH PRODUCTIONS who inmediately showed their interest and signed the band to release the album. The album was unleashed in September 1st. 2000 and it´s selling very well worldwide. A couple of days after having recorded the album, drummer Fabio had to leave the band, so Edwin who was the previous drummer replaced him, joining the band again.

In April 2000, the band entered the studio again to record their "Promo 2000" which features three new tracks plus an improved version of their cult track "Outside Dwellers", & what you can expect is one of the most brutal shit released during the new millenium. This Promo called the attention of many labels worldwide, one was Japan´s MACABRE MEMENTOS RECORDS which offered the band to release a 6 trax MCD entitled "Unmercyful Extermination". This MCD was released in March 2001.

In April 2001, the band had to cancel their North American tour with BRODEQUIN & VOMIT REMNANTS as well as the Ohio Death Fest 2001 due to problems with their papers & american visas.

After many proposals from around the globe, in September 2001, the band decided to sign with cult dutch label DISPLEASED RECORDS to release their 2nd full length album. INTERNAL SUFFERING started the studio sessions almost immediately, during more than 10 days the band concentrated 100% on the new recording, creating one of the most technical, complex, brutal & intense Death Metal albums of the year. The new album is entitled "Chaotic Matrix" and was released on April 2002.

In February 2002, the band did a colombian mini tour with Death Metal gods CANNIBAL CORPSE which meant some of the biggest turnouts for the band to date, playing in front of 1000 people aprox. each night.

Finally, while "Chaotic Matrix" album was released, the band embarked in a North American Tour, which included a successful appearance at the Ohio Death Fest 2002, where the band was voted 3rd in the general poll!

After this successful tour, the band returned to New York in order to play two awesome shows in the big apple and prepare their live appearances at the Massachusets Death Fest and Xtreme Benefest in Detroit along with the likes of IMMOLATION, DEVOURMENT, FLESHGRIND, LIVIDITY, INTERNAL BLEEDING, ANAL BLAST, among tons more. The band appeared at both festivals and got an amazing response from the audience, establishing once more as a highly respected South American brutal Death Metal force in the american scene.

Now, the band will hit Europe in April in order to do one of the hugest tours lately: CHAOS OVER EUROPE TOUR 2003 with around 80 dates in almost all european countries and appearances at some of the biggest underground festivals like FUCK THE COMMERCE FEST (Germany), BANDS BATTLE FESTIVAL (Germany), STEEL WARRIORS REBELLION FESTIVAL (Portugal), OBSCENE EXTREME FESTIVAL (Czech Rep.), SHITFEST (Slovakia), KALTENBACH OPEN AIR FEST (Austria), among others.

As soon as the tour ends up, the band will return to the United States to fully concentrate on the finishing and recording of their 3rd full length album to be released at the end of the year by DISPLEASED RECORDS.Quelle: - Choronzonic Force Domination
