Author Arto Mäenpää - 16.9.2023

In the world of extreme metal, there are few figures as enigmatic and fiercely dedicated as Juan Brujo, the iconic frontman of the legendary band Brujeria. With a career spanning decades, Juan Brujo has become a symbol of the band’s unapologetic approach to music and their fearless exploration of controversial themes.

Born under a shroud of mystery, Juan Brujo has kept his true identity concealed, much like the rest of the members in the band. This secrecy only adds to the intrigue surrounding Brujeria, as their music and lyrics delve into the realms of Latin American folklore, social issues, and the macabre.

As the vocalist of Brujeria, Juan Brujo’s guttural growls and powerful stage presence have left an indelible mark on the death metal and grindcore scenes. His lyrics, delivered in Spanish, tackle subjects ranging from drug trafficking to political corruption, all while infused with the band’s signature blend of brutality and satire.

Brujeria released their fifth studio album “Esto Es Brujeria” on September 15th via Nuclear Blast Records and Chaoszine sat down with Juan Brujo to discuss about his journey as a metal vocalist. You can check out the latest episode to the metal frontman video series below:
