In the following two years, NAMEK played more shows and worked on the material that would become part of the debut CD "Vaginator", that saw its release in 2006 (Everydayhate Recs.). The album went down well, with generally good reviews coming from all corners of the Grind globe. During this period, some lineup changes took place in the band. Simão decided to focus only on the vocals, and the bass was handed down to Samuel (ex-SIDEFFECTS, THE LADDER).
Now a five-piece, NAMEK promoted "Vaginator" with concerts around Portugal, being the presence at CAOS EMERGENTE '06 the highlight of that period. In 2007, more line-up changes took place. Nelson (ex-MASSIVE CARNAGE, PUSSYVIBES) replaced Samuel and, in the following year, founding member Alex quit the band and in came Marco (NAKED SOUL) to replace him. With this new formation, NAMEK went on to play in the 2008 edition of the SWR BARROSELAS METALFEST and one of the biggest Grindcore festivals in the world, the OBSCENE EXTREME in the Czech Republic. The latest release, a split CD with Holland's RECTAL SMEGMA (666 Records / Diablos Records), includes tracks that were recorded in 2007, the last material with Alex. The next release was a split 7" EP with sexy grinders PUSSYVIBES, released in 2010 through UTTER DISGUST RECORDS. The band eventually went on hiatus in 2011 until 2017, where they reunited to play a one off gig with GROG and ANALEPSY.
A decision was then made to make a full comeback, and NAMEK is now working on new material. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
