On an cold day of spring in 1986 four young metal enthusiasts decided to found their own band. The name of this band, CONVICTORS, is self-created and was found fast. The musicians of young Convictors were inspired quite strongly by bands like Possessed, Napalm Death, Kreator, Destruction, Sodom, Slayer and Messiah. Since the first demo tape „The last Judgement“ from 1986 the band won quite an handsome fan base. In 1988, already two years after foundation, the band laid away the instruments to enjoy the time as metal fans.

20 years later, in 2008, the old virtues were bethought. With a high level of energy and a new bass player the five song EP «Abdication of Humanity» was released 2009.

After two changes in the line up, the album „Envoys of Extinction“ was released in 2014. This were followed by international gigs in several clubs and festivals. In 2018 the band went once more into studio and recoreded the album „Atrocious Perdition“ which was then distributed by Kernkraftritter Records worldwide. Some internationale concerts were played and a new drummer was found.

During the Covid 19-pandemic the band used the time to write new songs. The album, like all the ones before, was recorded in Iguana Studios by Christoph Brandes. The new album „Tartaros“, the word originis from ancient Greek and means something like „underworld“, will be released on May 26th 2023 by Kernkraftritter Records. The eight songs oft the new album are residing in typical Death Metal with much aggression, fast blasts and chatchy riff changes. The vocals are, like always, deep and abysmal.
