This is the official website for Peruvian death metal band Infection.



Infection is a Peruvian death metal band that was formed in 2006. The group draws heavy influence from metal acts such as Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation, Monstrosity, and, of course, Death. Additionally, they incorporate thrash and grind elements into their music, creating a furious blend of relentless metal. To date, the group has released two full-length albums and two EPs. Since their formation, their passion for making music has not waned. On the contrary, they continue to keep the flame of metal alive and aim to consistently deliver brutal music to the world.

Following the release of the Nothing but Scum EP in 2008, their first full-length album, titled Necrokindergarden, emerged in 2009. The aforementioned album featured fourteen tracks of vicious death metal. Positive reviews and support were not only received from the local scene but also from foreign media. Acrotomophile Mutilator is the title of Infection’s third material. Initially released in digital format in 2014, a special 12” vinyl edition was subsequently produced in 2015.

Beheaded Children Contest was released on August 20th, 2020. Their latest album, The Cryptic Homicides, is set to be released on March 24th, 2024, by the Gate of Horror Productions label.

The current lineup of the band consists of Giuliano Canessa (vocals), Antonio Palacios (guitars), Yuri Cazal (live bass), and Yesid Aranda (live drums).
