"When Morbid Angel was releasing Altars of Madness, SPIRITUAL CARNAGE was breathing Death Metal in South America..."

Spiritual Carnage is one of the most important, if not the most important, metal band in Goiânia, they have started in 1989, a period that had only few metal bands around in Goiânia, much less a Death Metal band, with an old school style that draws influence from early Death Metal, like Morbid Angel and Cannibal Corpse, they survived trends and the lack of structure of our local scene, gaining a highly respectable reputation.
Unfortunately they were never able to tour on our national territory, therefore not getting the recognition they deserve, I don’t know if it is their own fault or just bad luck as their music has the quality to make them one of the best bands in Brazil. Few years ago they tried to organize an European tour but also unsuccessful.
During all this years, as most bands that last this long, they had some line up changes with Hemar Messiah the only remaining original member, they released four demos, PRE-DESTINED DEATH (1990), CREEPING UNDER BLACK SOULS (1992), SPIRITUAL CARNAGE (1997) e SHELTERED IN FLAMES (2002) and in 2006 they released, by the label Two Beers Or Not Two Beers, their first album the excellent VOICES OF DARKNESS, produced by Gustavo Vasquez.  They also shared stage with some wicked metal bands like KRISIUM, DESTRUCTION, TORTURE SQUAD, FUNERATUS, CANNIBAL CORPSE, SEPULTURA, KORZUS, MASTER, VULCANO and DR SIN.
Now they are preparing material for a new album and preparing again for an European tour
Basically they are the kings of metal in Goiânia and in this city if you call yourself a metalhead, a headbanger or whatever metal label you like to put on yourself, you gotta have their album, if you don’t,  better sell some of yours Slipknot or Metallica stuff and get it now!!!
