Nimrod biography

Nimrod first line-up was from 1985. They performed at the 1st Death Metal Holocaust together with bands like Massacre and Pentagram.

Chris Ira (Guitars), Andres "Chancho Cabrio"(Vocals), Yerko Tolic (Bass) and Eduardo "Picoroco" (Drums) played at that show.

In 1986 Chris recruited Marcelo Naves (later in Dorso) on Drums, Rodrigo Urzua on Bass, Alain Santard on Vocals and Juan Fco. Cueto (later Pentagram, Criminal) on Guitar which would be the classic line-up for the 80´.s.
They performed in almost every major stage at that time having a large group of fans. The style was some kind of Slayerish Thrash Metal with some very original arrangements.

In 1988 Nimrod went to studio to record his demo tape "Time of Changes" that turn out to be very well-evaluated in various magazines all over the world, Europe, England and in Japan the demo tape was chosen as the # 1 demo of the year.

In 1989 Nimrod received an award by "Radio Tiempo" and his program "Solamente Rock" as the band revelation of the year.

In 1990 they received a record deal with the American label "Wild Rags" Records to do an album, but due to different reasons the band didn’t record it and after a few months Chris decided to put to sleep Nimrod for a while.

In 2004 Nimrod began to emerge again and released a CD with "Time of Changes" demo remastered plus a good number of bonuses with unreleased studio tracks plus rehearsal stuff and live appearances.

For this record we brought Eric THE BEAST Morales from Puerto Rico, USA to sing, the recording and mixing was done at SADE STUDIOS in Santiago and the mastering was done by Staffan Osterling at STIGMATA STUDIOS in SWEDEN.

Now Nimrod is back and we have our new record "RETURN TO BABYLON"
