Violator was formed in the beginning of 2002 by friends who had no intention but to play the old Thrash Metal. The essence has remained the same ever since. Four Thrash Maniacs - Pedro “Poney Ret“ (vc / bx), Pedro “Capaça“ (gt), Márcio “Cambito“ (gt) and David Araya (bt) - crazy about Vio-lence, Whiplash and Exodus, who breathe the spirit and the Old School way of making Metal.

After a live recorded demo (Killer Instinct - 2002), two underground compilations (Metalvox # 1 and Fast Food Thrash Metal - both from 2003) and dozens of gigs in every hole in the Federal District and region, Violator had the opportunity to travel to Asunción and touch Paraguayan lands. In addition, she was invited to open the show of legend of the German Thrash, Destruction and the gringos deathbangers of Malevolent Creation.

It was in early 2004 that the band came into contact with the Kill Again Records label - from the publisher of the Metal Blood zine, Antônio Rolldão - and from that union, what should have been a second demo ended up as an EP, Violent Mosh. Four songs of intense Thrash Metal Old School, with no gap for modernity.

The intense promotion of the label, along with an insatiable desire to play, resulted in more than 40 shows in the next two years. Violator traveled to more than 10 states and was pleased to find thrashers from all regions of the country. The tour to end the disclosure of the EP, dubbed Moshing With Violence Tour - 2005 went through the entire Northeast of Brazil and took the band to play in the middle of the Amazon Forest, in the city of Portel, after facing 20 hours by boat.

One of these thrash gigs was registered for the first edition of Revista Da Tribo. She arrived at newsstands across the country accompanied by a DVD that records Violator's performance in Campinas / SP. Violent Mosh also yielded the band's first release abroad. Released by the GrimArt label of Bolivia, the EP had its version on K7 tape like the old bands of the 80s, in a limited version of 666 copies.

The search for the EP exceeded all expectations, which led to a relaunch in the form of Split with one of the great thrash bands in Brazil, Bywar. The union of Violent Mosh with Invincible War - the first record of the São Paulo headthrashers - became Violent War, which also brought a special bonus with Violator performing a cover for “Massacre” of the historic Taurus.

In the last months of 2005, the band received the worst news in its entire history. Guitarist, friend and brother, Juan Lerda had to leave the band to continue his studies in Argentina, his family's land. The farewell show was with the Finnish forces of Força Macabra, in a historic gig with an underground spirit and “United Forces”, feelings that the band always believed.

Juan's departure did not diminish the band's desire to do Thrash, live Thrash and breathe Thrash. Violator follows the beginning of 2006 as a power trio. After six months locked up at the Orbis studio in Brasília, the band comes up with the first full-length, Chemical Assault. The release of the album, in October of the same year, also marks the band's return as a quartet. Enter Márcio Cambito to bring more speed to the picks and even more insanity to the shows. Timpani violators are stronger than ever. The Violation Has Just Begun!
