Carajo

Carajo is a hard rock/metal band from Buenos Aires, Argentina. It was formed in 2001 with Marcelo "Corvata" Corvalan on bass and vocals, Andres "Andy" Vilanova on drums and Hernan "Tery" Langer on guitar and backing vocals. The first two share the history of having been part of the band A.N.I.M.A.L., one of the most important heavy metal bands in Latin America.

Genre

It is very hard to attach Carajo to one genre, although a good approximation would be "hard rock punk metal". Within well defined terms, Carajo best fits a mix of hard rock, metal and punk rock. Different media sources and individuals have stated Carajo to be Punk, Nu metal, Rock and even "Spiritual Hardcore" (term used by an mtv vj)

The release of the EP Carajografia (2003) and the live CD Electrorroto Acustizado 2.1 (2005) add more complication to the definition of Carajo's music since the songs on these two releases are remakes, covers and live versions in different music styles like reggae, bossa nova, hip hop, electronic, acoustic, rock n roll, folklore (chacarera) and murga.

Biography

2001

Creation of Carajo with Corvata on bass and vocals, Andy on drums and Tery on guitar and backing vocals. Their first show is at "La Diabla" on May 4 with the band Ritual. They also play in neighbouring Uruguay.

2002

Recording of their first full length album, Carajo, officially presented on May 7 at The Roxy in Buenos Aires. In November they play at Colombia's Rock al Parque festival in front of 80,000 people. The band is named "Breakthrough Band of 2002" by the most important newspapers in Argentina.

2003

They play Cosquin Rock, one of the most important summer festivals in Argentina, before 14,000 people. The EP Carajografia is released and they are nominated for an MTV Latin America video music award for "Best New Artist"

2004

Release of the second full length studio album, Atrapasueños (Dreamcatcher) and its successful presentation in front of 3000 people at Buenos Aires' "Republica Cromañon" (nearly a month before the tragedy at the same venue ends the life of 194 people during a Callejeros concert). This year also features their first visit to Paraguay.

2005

Carajo's first visit to Bolivia and Chile. Due to an accident (Andy's broken wrist), important shows are cancelled, which results in the band experimenting with new sounds and musical styles. Months later, the band releases Electrorroto Acustizado 2.1 (Acustified Electrobroken 2.1), a one-off show were they remade their own songs and played covers (Andy actually played the show, still with a cast on his forearm/hand). The live CD Electrorroto Acustizado 2.1 is released.

2006

Carajo writes a new chapter in Argentinian rock by becoming the first band ever to play in Cuba. The band returns to Uruguay and visits Panama for the first time.

2007

After many delays, the band's third studio album Inmundo is released. The DVD Formando Asi Cada Parte Del Todo (Thus Forming Each Part of Everything) containing footage of their show at Arena Obras Sanitarias in November 2005, and from their trip to Cuba is postponed indefinitely after many delays in its release (apparently due to technical problems). The band's first visit to Venezuela is slated for mid-August.
