Another great band of THRASH METAL joins Metal Media. The band HOCNIS reinforces the cast and prove once again the full force of Minas Gerais Metal, which already has major representatives in Metal Media!

HOCNIS was formed in 2002 by Igor Podrão and Glycon only to pass the time playing fast and heavy music. Glycon featured on vocals and bass, Igor Podrão on guitar and David on drums. After some concerts, the thing was getting serious, Rodrigo Jabuti assumes the bass and Glycon only on vocals. In 2003, Rodrigo and David left the band for personal reasons and for their places come Canabrava (bass) and Sheba (drums). Maintains the line up until mid-2005, with several concerts in Belo Horizonte and region, but not record any work.

After some personal problems and crises, Glycon and Sheba leaves the band. In 2006 the band takes over the activities with input of Luiz Toledo for the Drums (former drummer of Eternal Fall) and Victor “Screams” for the vocals, looking to do something professional. In mid-2008 the group got into the studio with the purpose of completing the recording of its first CD “Against All”, scheduled to have been launched in 2010. Among the recordings the band has a casualty on vocals and enters the post Carlos Moonchild (also lead singer of Azazel’s Curse)

Currently the band is in studio finishing the recording of the debut album and promoting its Demo “Demo(niac)’.
