Brujeria (1989-present): a Death Metal band from Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico.
his act started in 1989 in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico before soon relocating to Los Angeles, California (USA) by Juan Brujo (Real Name: Juan Lepe; vocals), Fantasma (Real Name: Pat Hoed; bass), Güero Sin Fe (Real Name: William "Billy" David Gould Junior; bass), and Asesino (Real Name: Dean Albert Maury Cazares; guitar; who formed Fear Factory around the same time). Ultimately, the band were "on hiatus" numerous times due to members leaving or being involved in other bands.
After the membership was augmented with Jr. Hozicon (a.k.a.: Jello Biafra; Real Name: Eric Reed Boucher; vocals/art direction), 1990's ¡Demoniaco! EP would result. ¡Machetazos! EP would follow two years later featuring the addition of Pinche Peach (vocals (additional)) and Greñudo (Real Name: Raymond Herrera; drums). For their debut album proper, Matando güeros (1993), Hongo (Real Name: Shane Embury) offered additional guitars and bass.
After Raza odiada (1995), the band line-up just kept growing with Brujerizmo (2000) featuring Hongo Jr. (Real Name: Nicholas Howard Barker; drums), Cristo de Pisto (Real Name: Jesús "Jesse" Ernesto Pintado Andrade; R.I.P. 2006; guitars), Marijuano Machete (Real Name: Antonio Hernandez; electronics/samples/vocals) and Pititis (Real Name: Gabriela Dominguez; guitars/vocals (female, backing)). It is important to remember that the line-up increases were due to the fact that the band, to this point wasn't officially "deleting" members. The membership would swap in and out as individuals peeled off to their various other projects to return later or help record parts of the albums.
