Formed in 2011 in southern Portugal (Algarve) by Nuno Santos, Amputate followed its founder to Helvetic lands. There he completed the band with Phillip Stengele, Filipe Guia (Perverter) and Markus Rücker. Zürich now serves as headquarters for the portuguese/swiss death metal band but blood spilling will tend to spread farther than those domains. Live slaughtering is being prepared.
