An inside look at the history behind one of Brazil's underground pioneers.
Last year's arrival of Protogoni Mavri Magiki Dynasteia marked another significant moment for Brazil's iconic metal underground with MYSTIFIER delivering yet another pristine full-length of raw nature. Inspired by their countrymen in SARCOFAGO and SEPULTURA, MYSTIFIER continue to put their country on the map and today, the band share a documentary that outlines how they came to be. The two-part mini-documentary, titled Mystifier - Two Days In The Capital of Death Metal (Dois dias na Capital do Metal da Morte), follows the band in Belo Horizonte (Brazil), exploring the rich history of the Brazilian metal scene and touching on the band's expansive 30 year career. Included within that are visits to several metal landmarks like the famed Bonfim Cemetary, known for the cover photograph on SARCOFAGO's Inri (1987).
"On our trip to the wonderful city of Belo Horizonte/MG - Brazil (which is the city of Sepultura, Sarcofago and others of extreme acts from the 80s), we recorded this documentary about our tour to promote the recent album 'Protogoni Mavri Magiki Dynasteia,' released by Season of Mist, in March 2019.
The documentary was recorded in November 2019 and we had no idea what was coming. We didn't even mention about the pandemic... As all of you know, all of our plans for 2020 have been ruined. All of our tours were canceled in Asia, Europe, United States, Canada and so on. Despite our Mother Earth's relentless rage against humans (Coronavirus), we are already working on new compositions. Beelzeebubth is working on a solo project too.
A big hug to all our fans, friends, bands, producers, road crews, label and tour managers, pub staff and so on. We can't wait to come back to road to keep our work on and on."
