The name CARCARIASS comes from Carcharodon Carcharias, the latin name of the Great White Shark.
In August 1994, the band recorded its first demo of 20 minutes on a cassette, composed of 4 songs + 1 intro. Through this demo, the band has acquired a certain recognition and it has played with bands in different concerts, notably with the Italian band Sadist, at the time of their French tour in March 1995, where Carcariass introduced the concerts.
Since 1995 the band has been playing Melodic Brutal Death Metal. And now, since 1997, the band evolved in a Technical and Melodic Death Metal.
In February 1997, the band released its first CD (9 songs) entitled "Hell On Earth". In September 1998, the band recorded its second CD, entitled "Sideral Torment" at the impuls studios in Belgium. "Killing Process" is their latest album, released in 2002.
