Chile’s old school Death Metallers ATOMIC AGGRESSOR are currently recording their debut album "Sights Of Suffering" at Pulsar Studios in Santiago, with a release date scheduled later this year through Hells Headbangers (Rawforce Records will be handling the record in Chile). Here’s an official statement from the band: "We are honored to be supported by Hells Headbangers and Rawforce Records in our largest project to date. It hasn’t been easy, but we have tried to follow the story at the point we left in the early ’90s, keeping the style we used to play in 1991. Deathbangers can expect nine new tracks of genuine South American old school Death Metal, including many rhythm changes, heaviness, and some Thrash Metal influences." ATOMIC AGGRESSOR released two demos ("Bloody Ceremonial" in 1989 and "Resurrection" in 1991) and then broke up. In 2007 they reunited to play a couple of festivals in Chile and a year later, the "Rise Of The Ancient Ones" demo compilation was released through Hells Headbangers. In 2013 the band’s first new recordings appeared on the "Blind Servants" split 7" with DEATH YELL, followed by the "Live Ceremonial" live CD on Rawforce Records. ATOMIC AGGRESSOR’s current line-up includes the two original members Alejandro Díaz (bass / vocals) and Enrique Zúñiga (guitars), and two members that joined the band after the reunion: Julio Bórquez (guitar) and Álvaro Llanquitruf (drums).
