MX (which is the denomination for a U.S. Army missile) is one of the bands for which brazilian thrash metal fans always fond remembrance, and that have left a great legacy in their homeland cenario, but seemingly never reaching the deserved recognition. Formed in Santo Andr?, S?o Paulo, in 1985, MX was initially comprised of vocalist Beraldo, bassist Yuri Konopinsk, guitarists Alexandre "Morto" and D?cio Frignani and drummer Alexandre Cunha.
Formed in Santo Andr?, S?o Paulo, in 1985, MX was initially comprised of vocalist Beraldo, bassist Yuri Konopinsk, guitarists Alexandre "Morto" and D?cio Frignani and drummer Alexandre Cunha. Beraldo died tragically during an assault, however, and with Yuri leaving the bass position for the new member Eduardo, "Morto" ended up assuming the vocal duties along with Alexandre Cunha, thus forming the lineup to record their first demo tape, 1985's "Fighting For The Bastards", and their appearance on the 1987's classical compilation "Headthrashers live", a very rare split disputed among LP collectors, recorded along with the bands Cova, Necromancia and Blasphemer. With these releases, the band has drawn attention of many headbangers throughout Brazil, and won the chance to record their full-lenght debut, 1988's "Simoniacal", released by the nostalgic label Fucker Records.
Unfortunately, the debut didn't recieve a proper promotion, but it seemed that it was just a matter of time before MX could reach international stardom, and by the replacement of Eduardo with the new bassist Chico Comelli came 1989's "Mental Slavery", boasting improved production and better refined songs. Still, the lack of good touring production support was a new roadblock, and not even the devoted praises by both media and fans could stop the depart of D?cio and Chico. MX was out of the metal scene for nearly eleven years when in mid 1999 they came back with "Again", now with "Morto" on bass/vocals and with the new guitarists C.M. and Alexandre G. "Dumbo". 2000's "Last File" followed and suffered from the same problems of the other releases. MX is currently trying to work on a new release, but nothing has been heard from them since late 2006.
