Biography

The Brazilian band Warfield, originally from the city of Videira – SC, was created in mid-2005 on the initiative of guitarist Ivan Caregnato, with the objective of forming a band dedicated to the Heavy Metal style. Initially, Ivan Caregnato invited guitarist Marlon Borges to join the band, who immediately accepted the invitation. Then it was the turn of bassist Carlos Medeiros to be part of the project and further on, vocalist Ricardo Mueller and the young drummer prodigy Fontaine Di Bastiani complete the line-up.

With this line-up, Warfield performs its first show at the beginning of 2006, at a country club in the interior of Videira, with the band itself organizing the event, and the set list, composed of covers of some of the main bands known worldwide in the style. Also already presenting their first two compositions, “Times of Dust”, which would later become the title of the first album and “Our Field of the War”, which was later adapted and renamed to Warfield, chosen name for the band.

After a good impression on their first show, new opportunities arise, the band begins to perform at municipal events, concert halls, rock festivals, where new copyrighted songs start to compose the set-list during the presentations. New shows are also starting to happen in cities other than the western region of Santa Catarina, making the band stand out in the underground rock & metal scene in Santa Catarina. And so, the band is getting more and more recognition from the audience present at the concerts, and consequently, gaining more space in press channels such as newspapers and specialized media.

After the first shows there were lineup changes, guitarist Marlon Borges decides to leave the group right after the second show held in 2006, to devote himself entirely to his studies. In his place, the young and promising guitarist Marcos Gaio enters, later on, bassist Carlos Medeiros and vocalist Ricardo Mueller leave the band. Despite the difficulty regarding the departure of members, the band remains active in performing new shows with the entry of vocalist Daniel Denbinski and bassist Ike Bauerle in early 2007.

Thus, in 2009, the great milestone in the band’s trajectory happened, the recording of the Debut Album called “Times of Dust”. Containing 10 songs, the album was recorded in the city of Curitiba-PR, where in addition to guitarist Ivan Caregnato, guitarist Marcos Gaio, vocalist Daniel Denbinski, bassist Isack Oliveira and drummer Fontaine Di Bastiani participated in the recordings.

There was then great expectation for the release show of the Times of Dust album, held in June 2010 in the city of Videira, with a large audience from the city of origin and cities in the region, so the event was very positive and exciting for Warfield.

Interestingly, what seemed to be a new and promising stage for the band after the recording of the Album “Times of Dust”, there was again wear and tear with the departure of members, first it was guitarist Marcos Gaio, who decided to leave the band right after the release concert, claiming to have other particular priorities and no longer getting involved in music-related activities. Then, after a few more shows, vocalist Daniel Denbinski also decided to leave the group in 2011.

After these facts, a few more shows were held, with new members, but the last ones. Due to the difficulty of maintaining a permanent line-up the band was inactive for a long period. With that, the merchandise and promotion of the album “Times of Dust” were quite compromised, in addition, there are few records available in videos of concerts performed by the band so far, due to such circumstances.

Regardless of these events with the band, right after recording the debut album, there were already two new songs composed, “Missing Children” and “The Racehorse”, which in 2013, adding to the new compositions, the band starts the recording process of the second album, “Master Executor”. The new work has the participation of guitarist Ivan Caregnato and drummer Fontaine Di Bastani, the only remnants of the album “Times of Dust”. During the next stages, the vocalist Gustavo Rafaeli and later the bassist Thomaz Bordignon join the band for the recordings.

At the end of 2020, the entire process of recording the second album was completed, recorded again in Curitiba-PR. Recently, guitarist Fabricio Casella was integrated into the group, in this way the group is once again complete, renewed and able to return to activities in concerts and new projects. The album “Master Executor” will be released in 2021.
