About Carajo

Argentine nü metal group Carajo wasted little time becoming one of South America's dominate hard rock voices. Established in 2001 by Marcelo Corvalán (bass and voice), Andrés Vilanova (drums) and Hernán Langer (guitar), Carajo hit the ground running, debuting at the famous Whiskey a Go Go in Buenos Aires. With strong fan support and positive press, the band set out on a national tour, performing throughout the Argentine provinces of Mendoza, Cordoba and Catamarca, later taking stages in Uruguay. The band's self-titled debut record was released in 2002 with the support of Universal Music. Album single "Sacate la Mierda" hit number 1 on national rock airplay charts, as did the corresponding music video. The record's success earned Carajo an invitation to Colombia's Rock al Parque, one of South America's biggest rock festivals. Carajo's quick rise to popularity earned them the title of "Revelacíon del Año" in several publications, including the Clarín and La Nacíon. Strengthening and widening their fanbase, the trio toured Argentina, Chilé, Paraguay and Uruguay. 2003 saw two more music videos hit the top of the charts, entitled "Salvaje" and "Ironia." By the 2004 release of Atrapasueños, a sophomore release was long overdue. The album generated strong sales and whipped up support for a corresponding tour that would take Carajo all over South America. The tour generated the band's first live-in-concert record, entitled Electroporroto Acustizado. Throughout 2006 Carajo continued to compose music for their upcoming third original release, and perform before ever-growing audiences. The group's third time out Inmudo finally saw the light of day in 2007, quickly taking it's place among Argentina's most popular releases of the year. ~ Evan C. Gutierrez
