POLITICS, WILD SHOWS AND A WORLDWIDE LOYAL FANBASE – MEXICO’S BRUJERIA HAVE COME A LONG WAY IN THEIR 27-YEAR-CAREER. FOUNDING FRONTMAN JUAN BRUJO SHOOTS THE SHIT WITH TERRORIZER ABOUT ALL OF THIS AND, OF COURSE, A BRAND NEW ALBUM

Sit down with Brujeria’s founding member/frontman/head henchman, Juan Brujo, and you’ll quickly realise that the imposing, grand-père of extreme music always has an incredible story at the ready. His unbelievable and entertaining yarns are plentiful, span all sorts of situations and are as ubiquitous as his Brujeria baseball cap, visage-obscuring bandana and leather vest.

There was the time he and Faith No More bassist, Billy Gould (who was an early member, known as Güero Sin Fe) were doing rails of blow in the bathroom at the 1993 Grammys when the then-governor of California, Pete Wilson and a member of his security detail walked in on them. There was their 1993 debut, ‘Matando Güeros’ reportedly being banned in twenty-two countries due to the decapitated head on the cover (“Roadrunner were using lawyers for a week trying to convince distributors to not only not send back our album, but the entire Roadrunner catalogue,” claims Brujo). Then, the riot Brujeria were privy to – or caused, depending on who you talk to – that time they played Santiago, Chile, after which they were supposedly partially paid in nose candy, a substance whose powdery head seems to turn up throughout many of Brujo’s recollections.

About Terrorizer Magazine

Devin Townsend: it’s a name synonymous with heavy and extreme metal, and also a name associated with the occasional foray into acoustic and country albums, not to mention albums featuring coffee loving puppets! And of course, who could forget his very own dedication to this here mag he created a few years ago with his mighty ‘Terrorizer’ song – only Onslaught had ever done a homage to a metal mag before this, if memory serves me correctly. There’s something for everyone, which is something rare in many musician’s repertoires. Devin’s enjoyed and created a rather unique musical path and 25 albums in, it’s awesome to see that this month, there are no signs of him letting up. Read all about what he’s been up to over the past few years and how he’s feeling about life in our cover story. Elsewhere this issue is jam packed with a delectable array of quality bands including plenty of UK bands – Akercocke, The Wounded Kings, Slomatics, Coltsblood, and Iron Witch – and plenty of worldwide ones too. Extreme music, no boundaries! See you next month. Darren Sadler
