Seems a long long time since ctesias and me begun to rehersal in my parents house. Its been a while, only ten years back, in 1992. ctesias came from a band formed by himself called mortandad, he joined with a drummerAnd came to me in order to play bass, i accepted althought i had my own death metal project called ataraxia. At this time we decide to call the band liturgia(what a name¡¡¡¡¡¡). Inmmediatly we began to rehersal with the firm intention to record a demo, and the first opus see the light in april of 1992. it was called sanctum regnum. The recording of this blasphemy was made in a home studio from a friend, we finished all drunken, it was a boozy work..this demo, quickly became in a reference point, and receive great reviews and comments. It was so raw, so slow, in the present days i consider it a jewel.
We rehersal so hard for this but due to my proffessional occupations, i had to move away temporaly. A guest bass player played my parts in the recording of this master opus, two raw tracks of pure slow doom, the classical unpure in perpetvvm and a side b called liturgy. This 7 ep was recorded in medellin and we had the great backing vocals of Alex Oquendo from masacre. This ep was a high point in our career, i returned not to play bass, i ssumed as lead guitar player. The gigs didnt wait for us and was time to tour, we paly all along the country again and then in 1996 came the opportunity to play in another country... ecuador. What a grat people. They received us so well
liturgia 95-96 ctesias, afar, julian, felipe
in perpetvvm ep sold out. For that time we were four members in the
band, and we decide that ctesias should leave the guitar to be devoted
alone to the screams, and to include a new guitar player... a previous
drummer bring us to jaime. It was understandig at first sight. The evil
flowed easy. We began to compose the tracks for our debut cd. We decide
to called it veritatis splendor, as you will see all our works have
latin titles. We recorded it in manizales inthe middle of 1998, whit
the colaboration of dilson diaz from la pestilencia. A hard work, but
sa great result to see. We signed with decade records, and our first
cd see the light in october 31 of 1998. it was time for the big leages,
we play with great bands as master, and rotting christ, and of course,
great colombian bands as masacre, tenebrarum etc.
