Cirrosis live performances were characterized by their intensity and fury, becoming soon a cult band. In this early days, songs such as “Masacre Infinita” and “Tu última blasfemia” emerged. In 1996, “Joseph Lev” joined the band and recorded their first demo “The Land of Addiction”, which was distributed in a very limited way.
