Espada are Lucas Fermandois on fretless bass, Nicolas Young, guitars, keyboards and singing and Carlos Pereira on drums. They play a classic ’80s metal inspired Power Metal that will make more than a fan of the genre jump off the chair. The use of Spanish as a sung language is reminiscent of the glorious groups of the Iberian tradition
Lucas and Nicolas have been playing together in different metal bands since 2015 and at the beginning of 2020 they decide to create a new project mixing power, heavy and with touches of progressive metal. To close the trio will arrive Carlos and with his contribution the Espada have managed to write and realize “Caleu,” the debut album that will be released by Elevate Records at the end of October.
Caleu‘s ‘concept’ centers on the ancestral myths, legends and stories of the central valleys of Chile, and the beautiful illustrations in the booklet are all inspired by these themes.
Despite having grown up with bands like Rhapsody of Fire, Stratovarius, Dream Theater and Symphony X, Espada still develop a more essential and basic sound that takes us back to the origins and could be cataloged in a NWOTHM key.
