Biografia
We are Theriomorphic

It all started back in 1997, when vocalist and bassist Jó decided to leave his previous band Necroterium and start a new one. The name Theriomorphic was already one he had suggested for a name change in Necroterium. Along with some material written by him, some of it that never got to be played by his old band, Jó defined the direction for Theriomorphic to follow and that would be explained to the musicians he would invite. With two guitarists accepting the chalenge, they started writing the first songs and rearranging a couple of Jó’s songs. But only in the beggining of 1999 the band started rehearsing on a regular basis and with a complete line-up. The first shows happened in the Autumn of that same year and, in 2000, Theriomorphic released a demo on tape, entitled “The Human Masquerade”.

Many live performances in the early years, all over the country, built a good reputation in the portuguese underground. In spite of having some members coming and going or in some occasions counting with the help of session musicians, the band established its place among its pairs.
On the second half of the year 2004, they recorded the album “Enter The Mighty Theriomorphic”. The songs are all re-recorded versions of some previously unreleased material. In April 2005, the band and the label Exorcize Music agreed on the release of the album. Some problems delayed the release, but finally “Enter The Mighty Theriomorphic” sees the light of day on October 31st, 2005.

After several shows and some more line-up changes, in January 2008 the band records the second album “The Beast Brigade”, released on CD and tape on September 27th. The CD version was released by the founder’s own label Dethstar Wreck’ordes. Tape version was released by Praise Unholy Records.

In 2009 the band played almost every significant metal festival in Portugal and several other shows, promoting the album. With some members playing in other bands and other personal and professional affairs demanding priority, the band goes into autopilot mode, only getting together to rehearse for the several shows to be played until the end of the first half of 2011. Musical differences had also turned out to be a major obstacle in finding inspiration to write new songs or to work in some ideas that were shared by members. In July 2011, the band agrees that the best option is to part ways once again with some of the members and recruit new ones. Although they were quickly found, some time off was needed to try to have some rest of the constant line-up changes and difficulties of the latest years. Working with several musicians with different influences led the band to a lack of inspiration and motivation and a need to regain its own identity.

Going into the 15th anniversary, the band starts to rehearse again in the early months of 2012, but still without the required regularity, due also to professional and personal issues. After some time, it became clear that not everyone was committed enough to make an effort and keep the band moving. Jó decided that instead of constantly struggling to keep the band alive, it was really necessary to cancel all plans and put the band completely on hold for some time and clear his mind from all the problems and obstacles the band faced over 15 years.

In the first months of 2013, the will to write music and play live finally came back, and so began the search for new band members and focus on the direction the band should never had left.

The sound of Theriomorphic crosses influences from different styles from inside and outside of the Death Metal genre, combining speedness, agressiveness, heavyness and melody.

Biografia
Emerging from the deep underground, Bleeding Display are born in 1999 under the name of Nekruma. The difficulties in having a permanent cast soon become evident, forcing the band to stay for a long period of time without a guitar and bass player.

In the year 2000 finally assume the current name, and the second half of next year stabilized the alignment (though ephemeral), with Sérgio Afonso on vocals, João Ferreira and Sid on guitars, AG on bass and Juca in the drums, which enables them to do some shows and record the demo CD “Bleeding Promotion” (witch songs were also later included in the four way split CD “War and Death”, with Cranial Incisored, Diabolical Messiah and Unfleshed).

The songs, intense and elaborate, rely on the death/grind structures of the U.S style, showing a group of musician’s technically gifted and high potential. However, 2002 marks the abandonment of Sid and A.G choosing the band only one guitar player (João). Alex take care of the four strings. Then, held a wide range of live shows shared with established names like Sacred Sin, Goldenpyre, Ransack, Grog, Necrose, Agonized and Devileech. First time out doors, in September 2003 in Spain (Pontevedra and Vigo), with The Howling and Brazilians Antidemon.

Since then, participating in numerous festivals in Portugal, as the Steel Warriors Rebellion – Barroselas Metalfest (2004, 2007, most recently as part of the commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the event), Algarve em Chamas, Butchery at Christmas Time, Clash of Extremes and, for two times, at Caos Emergente, consolidating the group’s position in the portuguese Underground. Also note the date of participation in Gutting Europe Tour in Lotus Bar managed by North American label Unique Leader Rec., side by side with Mortal Decay, Beheaded and Brutus. Bleeding Display rise an excellent live act reputation, becoming one of the most promising national bands in they’re genre.

In April 2005 start the recordings of their debut album, “Way to End”, released exactly a year later by the U.S. label Severed Records and Butchered Records. Following this release more doors opened for several concerts and festivals this time next to Cannibal Corpse, Immolation, Grave and Krisiun, among many others. The first time in London sold out, is also a milestone in the career of the band that at this stage, grown to over 50 shows to date.

In early 2008 guitar player Mário Figueira reinforces the suffocating wall of sound of Bleeding Display, and in the summer, the long-time teammate Alex gives the bass to Samuel Veiga. The writing process for the new album has started and it is expected that the recordings still occur in 2010. The themes already written indicate the fastest, technical and brutal ever created by the band, without prejudice to the groove that characterizes his music. Let the bleeding begin!
