CRUEL FACE - Miseria e Desgraca


Who wouldn't know the Brazilian veterans Rot? But do you also know the side projects of the individual members? No? Then be informed that a slashing crust/grind assault named CRUEL FACE is one of them. The project which was created as early as in 1996 to disband after recording and releasing several great releases in 2000 has announced a comeback in 2012.

Filthy and harsh ride as only the South American horde can deliver! A new line-up, new songs and even more aggression at the Obscene Extreme Festival 2019!!!


Band from Santo André (São Paulo), Brazil. Starts its activities in 1996 like a duo, Alexandre from Rot (guitar/vocal) and Marcão from Ação Direta (drums). In that time we recorded: One split LP w/ Death Slam from Brasilia released by the veteran Rotthenness Records and the brand new Bucho Discos from Alexandre. One EP released by Sin Fronteras. One split EP w/ Dudman from Japan released in the USA by Rhetoric Records.

In 1998 Edu (Nitromind's drummer that time) joined the band but playing guitar, then Alexandre started playing bass. They made some gigs in 8 diferent cities around the country, and recorded a split cassette w/ FDS from São Bernardo, in São Paulo. It was also recorded a split EP w/ Entrails Massacre from Germany released by Bucho Discos, Absurd and Tower Violence Records, in Germany.

In 2012 the band returned and changed line up. Now with Alexandre guitar/vocal, Edu drums, and Lalo (former Nitrominds) bass. We started playing old songs and making new ones. Then recorded the virtual album "Smash, Kill and Erase", that was also released 45 copies in cassette by our friend from Chile, Luis, that have a one man band called Misa Histérica. After that the band started playing a lot all over the country. It was released some stuff that time: One split EP w/ Disturbance Project from Madrid with many labels involved.
