Formed in the early 90s in Santiago de Chile by ex-Pentagram mastermind
Anton Reisenegger and guitar virtuoso Rodrigo Contreras, CRIMINAL were
combining elements of thrash, hardcore and death metal long before the
term “metalcore” was even thought of. The band enjoyed a meteoric rise
to the forefront of the South American metal scene, including five-digit
album sales, shows with the likes of Kreator, Sepultura and Slayer and a
nomination for Best Rock Video at the MTV Latino Video Music Awards, but
was faced with severe personal and business problems around the turn of
the decade. Reisenegger and Contreras then decided to relocate to the
UK, regrouping in a half-Chilean, half-British line-up. Since then, the
band has played on major European festivals such as Wacken and Summer
Breeze, as well as support shows with bands such as Chimaira, Six Feet
Under, Brujeria and Lamb of God.

CRIMINAL’s latest studio offering, “Sicario”, was hailed by the press as
one of the finest thrash metal releases of 2005 and was voted into the
Top Ten Albums of the Year by the readers of Terrorizer magazine. At the
same time, the band’s status in their home country remains unbroken, as
evidenced by a four-page feature in the Chilean edition of Rolling Stone
magazine and a recent show supporting Megadeth in front of over 14,000
metalheads.
