Formed in 1994 by George Trevino, Las Cruces began touring the Texas scene, gaining widespread recognition and the interest of John Perez, guitarist of Solitude Aeturnus & owner of Brainticket Records. Thus forging the Debut release: S.O.L.(1996-Brainticket Records). After a year of touring Texas and the Southern States, Las Cruces decided to re-enter the studio. Driven by the hunger and sharpness of old school metal along with the power melodies of 70s rock, Las Cruces released their skull-crushing follow-up, 1998s Ringmaster(Brainticket Records). Las Cruces was invited to perform at the first annual Stoner Hands of Doom Fest in August of 1999 and have been asked to perform regularly at these events. Las Cruces then began some extensive touring that gained them the well deserved exposure and respect of many of their peers. During 2001 Las Cruces returned to the studio to record & release "Lowest End". Las Cruces was also featured in "The Encyclopedia of Heavy Metal" by Author Daniel Bukszpan in 2003 as well as in the publication 'Rockdetector music presents: "Stoner, Doom and Gothic metal" series published in 2003. Las Cruces are poised to begin the metal onslaugth for the masses as they prepare to record their 3rd full length album. Over the years Las Cruces have gone through line-up changes & rumors of break-up. However, these things have not foiled the bands ideology. The 2005 Las Cruces line-up is the most solid & unified members to date. Discography: 1996:S.O.L.
