Formed at the outset of the '90s, Brazilian death metal band Krisiun featured guitarist Moyses Kolesne, his brother Max Kolesne on drums, and bassist/vocalist Alex Camargo. Employing a vicious, straight-ahead death metal style, the group recorded two demos (1991's Evil Age and 1992's Curse of the Evil One) and self-released a mini-album titled Unmerciful Order in 1993, thus building an underground audience. Signing to the small Brazilian label Dynamo, the group issued its proper debut album Black Force Domain in 1996; picked up for wider distribution by Gun Records, the record led to several European tour gigs for Krisiun. The follow-up, Apocalyptic Revelation, appeared in 1998; more extensive touring ensued, and after Krisiun made its first appearance in the U.S. in 1999, they were signed by major metal player Century Media. Their debut for the label, Conquerors of Armageddon, was released in early 2000. Black Force Domain appeared the next symmer.
