CineMuerte are a portuguese rock band formed in Lisbon in 2002 by Sophia Vieira (lead vocals) and João Vaz (bassist).
Within eight months of their birth, CineMuerte scored two tributes: to The Cure (Our Voices/Equinoxe Records – GERMANY- ‘Close to Me’) and to The Misfits (Portuguese Nightmare/Raging Planet Records – PORTUGAL- ‘Where Eagles Dare’).
They played live all across the portuguese musical landscape (Opening Acts with HIM, My Chemical Romance, Paatos’s, Summer Festivals such as Vilar de Mouros, Super Bock Super Rock). They were invited to play at the Twilight DVD Release Party as also at the World Guitar Hero Tour.
On 2006, Cinemuerte release their first album ‘Born From Ashes’, on the independent label Raging Planet Record. The album was produced by Armando Teixeira (Ik Mux, Boris Ex-Machina, Bizarra Locomotiva).
On December 2008, CineMuerte released in Portugal ‘Aurora Core’, the follow-up to their 2006 album ‘Born From Ashes’, via Raging Planet Records.
‘Aurora Core’ featured nine tracks including the first single 'AIR’, and 'The Night of Everyday’ written by Fernando Ribeiro (Moonspell). All tracks were recorded with special guests: Pedro Cardoso from Fever on drums and Moonspell guitarist Ricardo Amorim. The CD was mixed and Mastered in Germany by Waldemar Sorychta (Lacuna Coil, The Gathering, Moonspell, Tiamat, Samael).
In 2009, guitarists Tiago Menaia, Fred Gonçalves and drummer Sérgio Lopo joined the band.
In August 2009, Cinemuerte recorded the new wave song by British singer Kim Wilde ‘Kids in America’ released on the Metropolis 79/89 album (Carbono Records, Raging Planet & Metropolis).
In 2011, Cinemuerte’s most recent album ‘Wild Grown’ was released: the Cinemuerte’s third long-length was mixed and mastered by Beau Burchell, american musician (Saosin), acclaimed record producer, and audio engineer from Orange County, California (USA).
