TRAUMA - Grindcore/Death Metal/Hardcore/Venezuela

TRAUMA was born in mid-1994 in Maracaibo, Zulia State, Venezuela; as a continuation of the projects created by Henry Rodríguez on drums: MADRE NATURA (punk-hardcore), CANCERBERO (death metal), UTOPÍA (death metal), INFECCIÓN (grindcore), Jean Carlos Parra vocalist of the band VERTEBRA (death metal) , along with Alexander Sosa The Bone in the voice. These bands had been making a lot of noise since the early 90s in the extreme underground metal scene in Zulia, and later at the national level.
After a year of overcoming a lot of obstacles and many changes of members, musical styles, which were always influenced mainly by hardcore-punk, always mixed with a bit of death metal, especially in the guttural of the voices, grindcore , and noise, they decided to keep the same name, and that is how the idea of ​​TRAUMA was born, initially formed by Jean Carlos Parra on the first voice, Alexander Sosa El Hueso as second voice, Henry Rodríguez on drums, Cristian zachman on guitar , and Jorge Paz on bass.
This formation would record in 1997 what would be the first long duration of the band, released in cassette format, which would be called: REINO DE NACIONES OSCURAS, funded entirely by who was our Manager Hebert Rodríguez, (Deceased), recorded by Ramiro Parra, and Duplicated by MASTER TRACK CA.
