Santiago, Chile's Coprofago were formed in 1993 by vocalists/guitarists Pablo Alvarez and Sebastián Vergara, bassist Felipe Castro, and drummer Marcelo Ruiz, who recorded their five-track demo while still in their teens and then introduced the world to their highly technical death-jazz metal style (influenced by Atheist, Cynic, etc.) via 1997's Images of Despair album. Three years later, they finally produced a follow-up in the Genesis LP, which showed the band meant business by including contributions from Rodrigo Castro on fretless bass. Currently, Coprofago's status is in question due to certain members' relocation to Sweden, but rumors have surfaced that they are still somehow working on new material.
