PIRAÑA is the fucked up child of Samuel Olvera (ex Disgorge, Genital Retroplasia, Domain, Ravager, Demonized and actual member of Undenied) and César Tarello (ex Antiqua and actually Devil´s Whiskey and session guitarist of Zombiefication), formed in 2003 with the only porpoise of playing raw thrash with any pretentions except to crush all tunes as possible.
After a year of work PIRAÑA recorded their first MCD with 6 songs entitled: PIRAÑA ATTACK coproduced with Onslaught Records in February 2004. With great surprise, in very short time the band started to grow with very good critics from zines & websites, and listened in all México thanks to songs.
In January of 2006 the band produced an Split CD called MECHANICAL JAWS INVASION were they played with a local band called The Pit (thrash death) and released two new songs with an intended demo raw mix (Guerrilla War and Broken Cross) and they also played a cover song from Exodus (Piranha).
Thanks to this two works and a lot of gigs, the band started to be recognized as one of the best metal acts in México.
In December of 2008 the young drummer Fernando Nieto started with the band and the first CD DESTRUCTIVE ANIMAL REVOLUTION is recorded under the label of American Line Prods. The songs got better acceptance and the album got sold out in few months, projecting the band as an icon of mexican thrash.
While still promoting the album, PIRAÑA worked as opener acts of many bands as Impaled Nazaren, Pungent Stench, Destruction, Nuclear Assault, Hirax, Onslaugth and also played at many international festivals as the two editions of Metal in the Forest with Vader, Evil Dead, Watain, and many more.
In 2011 PIRAÑA record an studio video from the song Godkiller and started their first international tour in CUBA as an unedited issue, they play in two massive concerts and many local gigs as the first mexican band touring all Cuba with local acts as Ancestor and Combat Noise.
By 2012 the band produces a new promotional video of the messenger of god song that came to light to promote their new album called CORRUPTION under the japanese label Red Rivet Records.
In 2013 the band reedited the first record PIRAÑA ATTACK with a new recording of the songs of the MCD and new art, and also started their first European tour to promote the CORRUPTION album along side of the mexican bloodshed act Zombiefication and had an excellent participation in the Barroselas metal festival in Portugal.
Since the departure of the bass player Juan Vargas in 2014 the band refreshed their logo and music starting a new era of a shoot in your face that will come to stage in 2015 with the second European tour alongside with Hirax, Desecrator and Past the Fall and with the presentation of the new mcd called RAW.
