Biography

Mutilator was formed in 1985 in Belo Horizonte by vocalist/bassist Kleber, guitarist/lyricist Alexander "Magoo", bassist Ricardo Neves and his brother Rodrigo on drums, originally under the name of Desaster. The band changed their name to Mutilator following the addition of Sepultura roadie Silvio SDN on vocals. This line-up recorded the Bloodstorm and Grave Deseccration demos, and contributed two tracks (Believers of Hell and Nuclear Holocaust) to the Cogumelo Records' compilation Warfare Noise I in 1986.

By 1987 Silvio SDN had left the band, and the band recorded their debut album for Cogumelo, Immortal Force with Kleber on vocals. The album was recorded on a tiny budget but has proved to have some long-lasting appeal; Eduardo Rivadavia of Allmusic describes it as "an excellent case study in DIY ethics and the desire to succeed against all odds" and comments, "when held up against its improbable origins, many of its deficiencies can't help but be ignored, and may well explain the album's enduring appeal in the eyes of serious metal collectors". Comparisons have been made between the album and the works of Sepultura, Sarcófago, Vulcano, Kreator, Anthrax, Slayer, Metallica, Possessed and Bathory The album however had little international impact, and led only to limited national touring. Magoo however had faith in Mutilator's future potential and turned down an offer to replace Jairo T. in Sepultura (a position eventually taken by Andreas Kisser).

A second album, Into the Strange was released in 1988 with a different line-up, following the departure of the Neves siblings. Magoo took over on vocals, also penning all of the lyrics and much of the music; the record also saw the arrival of new members CM (on guitars) and drummer Armando Sampaio (ex-Holocausto. Recorded and mixed in 16 tracks at Belo Horioznte's JG Studios, the album "held the distinction of being Brazilian heavy metal's most professional domestic production yet". However, the album fell well short of commercial expectations, and Mutilator split up shortly after its release.

The band reunited briefly in 2001, but this reunion was cut short by the demise of Magoo in London, reportedly from a drug overdose.
