Procession - Biography



In a time, when so-called internet "journalists" and self-proclaimed experts, either backed by the interests of the industry scum or driven by sheer stupidity, are trying to re-write the sacred history of Heavy Metal, bands like Procession from Chile are needed more than ever.

Formed in 2006 by Felipe Plaza and Daniel Perez in Chile's cultural heart, the coastal city of Valparaiso, they follow the path of tradition, laid out by the masters Black Sabbath, Candlemass and Saint Vitus without mercy, without compromise. Their 2008 demotape "Burn" was a first near-fatal blow, which showed already, what the band is capable of. The three anthems featured on the tape are manifests of true doom, in the vein of Reverend Bizarre and Count Raven - played with dedication and excellent musicianship. Ultra-heavy guitars, pounding drums and relentless riffing meet the passionate and powerful vocals of Felipe Plaza, reminding of young Ozzy as well as Albert Witchfinder.

In November 2008 Iron Kodex will release the first vinyl EP of Procession, featuring three brand new songs and the sold-out demo.
