PRION born in Argentina (Buenos Aires) in 1994.

On 1997, the band recorded his first EP called "Corpse Dissection", which received a very good response from the local underground scene. The band plays a mixture between death-metal and thrash-metal. After several member changes, the band made his first show with the following initial line-up: Gregorio Kochian (vocals and guitars), Diego Braña (guitars), Iñaki (bass) and Marcelo Russo (drums).

Corpse Dissection - 1997

On 2001, Walter Barrionuevo enters to PRION to play bass replacing Iñaki. Then, over the 2003, PRION recorded his first album called "Time of Plagues" under the label Furias Records (Argentina). The spirit of this album is based within the death-meta style, although with some parts with black-metal, including some influence of the thrash-metal roots. Higher musical creativity, better sound quality, direct feelings in the lyrics inspired on the war, pain and constant embrace with the death. Bands like Carcass, Death and Morbid Angel were a big influence. Although PRION searches his own music, style and sound; trying to grow with more strength and power.

Time of Plagues - 2008

On 2004, Rodrigo Robledo temporarily replaces Marcelo Russo on drums, who returns (Marcelo) again in 2006. Diego Braña (on guitars) leaves the group and establishes a new PRION as a trio band, maintaining that kind of format till today.

In 2007, PRION recorded the EP "Psalmodian Wrath", which was a preview material of the next studio album.

Psalmodian Wrath - 2007

With some tracks of "Impressions", on May of 2011 Comatose Music publishes the split "Torso Trauma" with great bands of extreme international scene such as: Antropophagus (Italy), Putridity (Italy), Infected Flesh (Spain / Netherlands) and Mass Infection (Greece).

"Impressions", edited by Comatose Music (USA) into 2008 shows a musically growth, with much more extreme and technical inclination; in the vein of bands like Hate Eternal, Nile and Immolation. With this material, the band starts to play and travel through Argentina with his music, as well making two presentations on different dates into Uruguay.

The CD album was recorded at the band's own studio, making an important hop for the career of PRION.
