Two piece Hardcore/Noise/Grind band formed in December 1988. In early 1989 they have released the higly aclaimed demos "Paranóia" ("Paranoia") and "Manicómio" ("Madhouse"), in portuguese language. By the midlle of the year they started singing in english and have recorded the third demo, wich was not released. In early 1990, before they split, Paranóia recorded the promo-track "Thrash!", also unreleased. In early 2002 the band have released the double CD-R compilation "13 Anos Depois - Ataques de Loucura e Paranóia" ("13 Years Later- Strokes of Madness and Paranoia"). The CD includes the released and unreleased demos, rehearsals and lots of rare material. The two songs featured on this page ("Dores de Parto"-Pains of Birth" and "Cadeira Eléctrica" - "Electric Chair") were taken from the demo "Manicómio".
Line-up: Dave Mille (guitar, vocals) e D. Lombardo (Drums, Vocals).
Recently Dave Mille became a solo musician, with Dave Mille Hardcore/Noise Project, wich is in stand by. Later this year Paranóia intend to release their new demo-CD, probably titled "Esquizofrénico" ("Schizophrenic").
Paranoia main influences: Napalm Death, Extreme Noise Terror, Unseen Terror, Terrorizer, Ratos de Porão.
More than a band, Paranoia is a family. The two members were born in 1970 and became friends 4 years later! A perfect friendship!
