M.A.S.A.C.R.E. To Open For IRON MAIDEN In Peru

Peruvian band M.A.S.A.C.R.E. has been confirmed as the support act for IRON MAIDEN at Estadio Nacional in Lima on March 26.

Commented M.A.S.A.C.R.E. guitarrist Coqui: "We are very happy to be on stage opening for MAIDEN. It is something that we didn't think would ever happen in our career."

Founded in Lima in the mid-'80s, M.A.S.A.C.R.E. is considered to be one of the leading metal bands in South America. Since the release of the group's first album, "Sin Piedad" ("No Mercy") in 1988, to the worldwide success of 2004's "En Pie de Guerra" ("On The Warpath"), M.A.S.A.C.R.E. remains one of the most powerful live acts around, having shared the stage with QUIET RIOT, PAUL DI'ANNO, TRANSMETAL, CRIMINAL and RATA BLANCA, among others. M.A.S.A.C.R.E. also represented Peru on the V8 and KRAKEN Latin American tribute albums, two legendary metal bands from Argentina and Colombia, respectively.

M.A.S.A.C.R.E. was recently interviewed by Netjoven TV about the band's upcoming concert with IRON MAIDEN. Watch the clip below.
