As the legend goes, Brujeria is an extreme underground band, consisting of various Mexican drug lords and/or murderers, who are so notorious that they must keep their identities unknown as they release albums. A great story, but of course it's not the truth. In actuality Brujeria is a side project led by Dino Cazares of Fear Factory. Exactly who has recorded here on which albums isn't quite clear (the pseudonyms listed below may not match up to the real names), but the core of the band, at least at one time, consisted of Cazares, Billy Gould (ex-Faith No More), Raymond Herrera (also of Fear Factory), Shane Embury (Napalm Death), and Pat Hoed from the punk band Down By Law, though the current lineup no longer features Herrera or Gould, but does involve Nick Barker (Dimmu Borgir). With three bass players in the mix, one might expect a lower-end sound, and that's exactly what Brujeria is all about -- dirty, down-tuned, grungy death metal, with lyrics sung entirely in Spanish (and not very friendly lyrics at that, as anyone with just passing familiarity with Spanish curse words can attest). Quite cool, actually. They aren't without a sense of humor either -- who else could record a death metal version of the Macarena and call it "Marijuana"?

The band hasn't recorded an album since 2000, but have released the odd single (one as recently as 2014), so the band is active in one form or another.
