Brujeria Bio:

Brujeria is a Mexican-American extreme metal band formed in Los Angeles, California in 1989. Their name comes from the Spanish word for "witchcraft". Their songs, which are sung in Spanish, are focused on Satanism, anti-Christianity, sex, immigration, narcotics smuggling, and politics. Portraying a Mexican image and with a heavy anti-American stance, the majority of the band's members are Mexican-born, and with some being American, Swedish or British. Furthermore, the band is not from Tijuana, Mexico, contrary to popular belief.

Brujeria is a side-project of guitarist Dino Cazares (founding member of Fear Factory), and has featured artists such as Billy Gould, Nicholas Barker, Raymond Herrera, Jeff Walker and Shane Embury. They perform under pseudonyms and portray themselves as a Latino band consisting of drug lords, concealing their identities due to being wanted by the FBI. In videos and photographs of the band, they are shown wearing bandannas, balaclavas, serapes, and are often shown wielding machetes.
