TANATOSSIS is a Thrash Metal band from Alicante (Spain) which began with different musicians as most groups do. (Santi, Abel & Juanje). The band was formed in ‘96 with the following members: Gabi (bass/vocals), Rubén (guitar) and Ivan (drums). In february ‘97 we recorded our first demo called "Despierta esto es Real" which sounds pretty bad to us today.
For two years we were doing gigs in Alicante and Valencia, in november ‘99 we decided to record our 2nd demo "Syndrome Repulsivo". We continued doing gigs and writing songs during one more year until Ivan decided to leave TANATOSSIS by personal reasons (January ‘01). He was replaced by the current drummer Kike. Once Kike was familiar with all our songs, we started to play live again. In march 2002 we returned to the studio to record their first full length entitled "El Néctar del Odio". At the beginning of 2003 we were involved in the Venganza Fest. playing as a support slot for Avulsed on three occasions: Xativa, Valencia & Alicante. It was a great experience to do share stage with the best Death Metal band in Spain (AVULSED).
Last may 2005 a new member joined TANATOSSIS. Germán took over the 2nd guitar as our fourth member in the band. We have collaborated with the O.S.T. in Julián Lara’s filmcalled "Dadhunter: Sevillian Zombies” available on DVD, together with great bands like , S.A., Tralla & Ciezo, Killer Barbies, Seguridad Social and many more. Also we were invited to take part in the O.S.T. of "Kombate Brutal” by Escoria Films which has just been made available on DVD (june 2005), and with other bands like Codename, Nadir, Blood, Ebola Corp., etc...
TANATOSSIS finished the recordings of their 2nd album called "La Cultura de la Muerte", being released in October 2005. Since then we have done many gigs in several locals and fests (Death From Hell Fest, 2nd Massacre Fest, 2nd Conc. Motera Alcoy, K-RRAS-Ka Rock, etc...).
In early 2010 the band began to prepare their 3rd album “The Darkest reflections”, this time with most of the songs sung in english (except one) with a more elaborated style then on previous recordings as well as a better production and design. For this work, TANATOSSIS got in touch with Xtreem Music with the aim of getting a collaboration regarding distribution and promotion apart besides releasing it. After reaching an agreement, the new album was finally released in July 2010 and the band is now ready to present it live anywhere they can.
