The infamous story of NAMEK begins in 1998, when Simão (ex-GROG, ex-SISTEMATIC COLLISION, ex-THE INVERTEBRATE, MARTELO NEGRO) and Vitor Mendes (ex-SISTEMATIC COLLISION, ex-NEOPLASMAH) formed a side-project called ULTRAPODRE. This duo recorded material that was later released in a split tape with canadian grindfreaks FUCK THE FACTS. Eventually, this side-project called it quits and both Simao and Vitor focused on their main bands. In December 2001 Read more on Last.fm
The infamous story of NAMEK begins in 1998, when Simão (ex-GROG, ex-SISTEMATIC COLLISION, ex-THE INVERTEBRATE, MARTELO NEGRO) and Vitor Mendes (ex-SISTEMATIC COLLISION, ex-NEOPLASMAH) formed a side-project called ULTRAPODRE. This duo recorded material that was later released in a split tape with canadian grindfreaks FUCK THE FACTS. Eventually, this side-project called it quits and both Simao and Vitor focused on their main bands. In December 2001, Simão joined forces with drummer Beto (ex-GROG, ex-DEVICE, ex-AS GOOD AS DEAD, ex-WE WERE WOLVES, FILII NIGRANTIUM INFERNALIUM) and guitarist Alex (ex-DEVICE), and so NAMEK was born. The following year, the trio entered the studio and recorded a version of GUT's "Women in Decay", which became part of the compilation CD "A Tribute to GUT". Guitarist Paulo (ex-CARNIFICATION, ex-SIMBIOSE) joined in the summer of 2003.

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 scheduled release is a split 7" EP with sexy grinders PUSSYVIBES.

A late 2009/early 2010 date is expected for this auditory abomination to be released. NAMEK are currently working on new material for the second album, which will be out, hopefully, before the next Ice Age. Read more on Last.fm.
