Malefactor was born in December 1991 in Salvador, BA, Brazil, by the hands of Lord Vlad (Vocalist) and Alexandre Deminco. They decided to use this name because Malefactor mixes both power and obscurity in a strong name. Just a few months passed until the guitar player Danilo Coimbra joined them. Their first gig took place in the end of 1992 on the Halloween Festival, and the sucess on the stage brought them a lot of invitations for other gigs. 1993: Malefactor released the 1st demo-tape called Sickness and did some shows, playing with local bands such as Mystifier and Headhunter DC.
