Later joined by Ruby Roque as vocalist, the first and primal band formation was completed. Soon after Witchbreed released “Descending Fires”, a demo-ep containing four songs that become a very rare and sought-after item for underground collectors all over the world.
With the increasing demand for live shows Witchbreed added Filipe Sousa (guitar) and Tiago “Hollow” Lopes (drums) and became ready to present a complete live show of seductive and fierce aggressiveness. The following year was spent playing live in clubs all over the country and as an opening act for bands like Samael in some of the biggest summer fests in Portugal.
Witchbreed’s live show took critics and audiences by surprise due to their dark energy and furious performance. Such performances have established Witchbreed as a genuine and unexpected groundbreaking band in the current Metal scene.
