Despite their name being more or less translated to “shit eating,” Coprophago are a classy progressive death band based out of Chile. They bring the tech death in modest amounts, but they certainly bring the jazz fusion influence and progressive song structure out of the woodwork. They haven’t been very active since their last album Unorthodox Creative Criteria in 2005, which is rather unfortunate. The current state of metal would be a very hospitable environment for a new album right about now. It’s a shame I haven’t heard of them until recently!
The only Facebook page I could find of them was an unofficial fan page (don’t you hate it when band’s aren’t on top of the social networking game?), but their MySpace page shows an update from back in January that says, “preparing come-back.” Let’s hope it comes soon!
