Razorback Profile

Founded in 1990, the group Razorback began when two hormonally charged guitarists, Tirso Ripoll and David Aguirre, and drummer Miguel Ortigas decided it was time to leave their rooms locked and begin to make a Snowshoeing in public. Join the kids were axemen singer Mari Jose Cuervo (no relation to the drink, even if his singing has left spectators while intoxicated), bass blaster Louie Talan (then and now, the most reluctant boy Razorback).

From the beginning, Razorback had a reputation following through their dense yet blistering and live performances. There is no escape from the twin dynamics of terror and Tirso de David, whose guitar duo attack may recall the Allman Brothers or Lynyrd Skynyrd still remain an unusual sight in the Pinoy music scene. Yet there is nothing like the intensity of all Razorbunch, torrential noise, making them to begin some time in the form of joint-shaking, and calls on the fixture So thriving, but Makati defunct club called Kalye.

Like most groups, the first Razorback helped themselves to cover their memories musical icons, in their case, monsters 70 years such as Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, and the band Juan Dela Cruz. This at a time when the so-called alternative music scene was about to explode, Razorback becomes a real alternative right time for the flood of bands of monkeys to Nirvana.

As in past years has played on 90 Razorbacks accumulated a lot of experience, a lot of music, a major exhibition, and a lot of alcohol. Finally realizing that they were not a showband, these sonic swine began writing his own songs, their first tried responsible for the intensity that have made their phonetic ancestors proud. Incessante and play the song has become the norm for members of the band, resulting in this rich riff originals as Tabi ng Bulkan, Giyang, and Pepe the Hepe. Yet, in some ways mimicking the band's struggle to gain respect among their peers and themselves, it took five years for the first album Razorback to escape the slaughterhouse. Hebigat Sounds Volume One was finally unleashed, symbolic of a gang who, after a long and arduous climb, finally reached the summits and planted the flag of theirs so that the world - or at least Philippine listeners - a look .

Of course, like any climb, Razorback is not without bruising, damage, or at least some changes. For one thing, even before Hebigat got out, Jose Mari had decided to make a forced landing rock 'n' roll lifestyle, and consequently the tape. Shortly after
Kevin Roy took the howling chores, Miguel books division in mars'96 thus choose to take another musical direction. Razorback regained composure once Brian Velasco took over the skins, in accordance history -- Along with the other members "pre-Razorback live experience: as in any. Years have also seen Tirso from bemoustached and the beard horribly beardless and rear, Kevin shaved their heads together for a kiss it, cooler-than-Butt-head look, David and Louie have their own tresses shortcut surprising, and indeed the entire group out of its shell-rock classic by digging what other riches from the world of music has to offer.

Their penchant for the epic, can you-keep-up - with-us performance found an outlet in their practice succeeding the album, the most ambitious 1997 album Beggar's Moon. Significantly more confident than ever, the quake-inducing quintet were regularly show their musical and lyrical strengths to the handle, as well as a commitment to ease their minds and hands. The result is a range of songs - Payaso, Munting Paraiso, Ikot ng Mundo, and Pipeweed Of Hobbits, and Goldenthroat: The Electric Mistress, among them - that evoke visual enough to make Beggar's Moon sound like the soundtrack to some long - Lost film.

As the songs are kept coming as concerts, which also took the group and not only through Metro Manila, but throughout the country. Wherever they played, the team was able to force viewers to headbang to their heavy grooves, not mention get excited enough spectators to the spot with a band of wild array harmful components. But everything comes naturally play with the promotion of albums and songs, Razorback keep sweating it out on stage as often as possible
Since a lull in reading lead rusty hands.

Not only punish their perseverance paid off for them, as well Razorbacks have also won a reasonable dose of success. In addition to being among the most respected local groups, there is David winning the 1997 NU 107 Rock Award as Guitarist of the Year - an honor he shares with Tirso personally, nothing less - and win Louie's bass player Rock Year Award the following year. The mere fact that they remain under contract with Sony Music Philippines, which had released Beggar's Moon, shows enough of these guys' repute.

Which brings us to their latest round of explosives, 1998 album simply called "Star". Compared to the music on Beggar's Moon, Star's are shorter, more concise and simple rowk-a-rowl. As the cover photo suggests, the album is full of fresh licks, and pummeling rhythms and melodies that alternately shunning the speed limit or slower, sensually tread. From the outset, with the title song, down "Tunay na Kulay," "Love Inflatable Thing" "Firefly", et cetera, "Star" shows no mercy for the ears. Moreover, the third star single, "Voodoo, Who Do?" A not only a pleasant tone loss, it also has the coolest video ever made in the Philippines.

Nine years later, Razorbacks have indeed become stars Pinoy plane on the musical landscape, but they refuse to think. They prefer to be forever grateful rocking after all these years, counting both boys and girls of different ages, horizons, and even for the tastes of a public. Instead of being mindful of the situation, they would much rather amass as wide an audience as possible, playing as many faces and races in as many places as possible.

Notwithstanding all the hardworking and hard-rocking years, they have connected Razorbacks are still on the virtual road, on a path to the glory of the music. Razorback by visiting the website, but also by scoring all or part of the recordings of the group, and participating in them, whenever they are in your area, you join the group in the trip. Make sure they are happy to have you as well.

Greyhoundz History Profile

It was during the late 90 when pop culture dominated by the social environment. De la mode with vilification, food to the music, it has been incorporated as all influenced by trends abroad. For the music scene, most bands played Top 40 hits and similar-sounding "originals. It was simply stereotyped.

During this decade came to an end, the entire Philippines music scene has been blown with a demo recording catch airplay in a radio station - it was NU107's In The Raw program where they have new and unsigned bands . "PIGFACE" was the title of the single and "GREYHOUNDZ" was the name of the artist. Brave, bold and aggressive, is the best way to describe both the song and the artist. Everyone who had the taste was shocked and bewildered about how to define what they had just heard. It was the first time in Philippine airwaves that the "type" of music was played. Public acceptance has been incredible, and the sound has been recognized as a new alternative.

The "New Metal" genre was created or how Greyhoundz fans and critics would say, the HU-POW movement. It was so powerful "Pigface" as it was spread across the stage. Now, the Pinoy eksena has a new son for the feast. Hordes and hordes of fans have been collected throughout the country, resulting in a number of followers gargantuan. The eksena really took off when Greyhoundz released their first album, 7 Corners Of Your Game in 1999. Sony Music released in the Philippines, this album is the raw and most powerful tracks still attractive. Songs like "Mr. PIG," "Leech" and "A Part 802" group displayed versatility in song writing. Heavy rock meets hip-hop - as we all know how the two clashed during standards. Needless to say he was Greyhoundz that filled the gap. The album also hit Platinum, making an evil Greyhoundz and heaviest band in the country.

In 2001, released their sophomore album Greyhoundz, also of Sony Music Philippines. This self-titled second LP has all the fans and the media expect just as well or even better album. For all, it was a maturity and development of their young brooding aggression of the first version. Songs like "Jack In The Box", "Hole" and "Your Puppet And Clown" became instant favorites. And as a twist of rabies and strong theme of the band, "Karmic?" Was a surprise tamed-favorite. Without mentioning "Even" making it in the movie Spider-Man music compilation, making the only artist Greyhoundz Asian to be included in an international project. And the fans grew…

Mid-year 2005, the "wave" has never ceased… "APOY" was released. Despite the untimely passing of a brother to join our Creator, Greyhoundz never stopped. The band even received more fuel all the difficulties, the joy, frustration and the positive energy they had. "Apoy" is dedicated to the same brother that followed, knowing that this was what he wanted to do the band… move forward and to do their best to be.

At present, Greyhoundz is still a force to be reckoned with, winning bragging rights back to the scene as a group respected. They also get as much attention as the "pop" band from corporate sponsors. Now, the big stigma is only one kind shared across the stage and industry. Many "rock" bands have sprouted, as aggressive as Greyhoundz how has it then. Fearless and ambitious that the group has been and is still…. That's how Greyhoundz do. And fans grow even larger…

The Beginning of Wolfgang

The Philippines music scene is not a very attractive environment for the metal / hard rock, because it is dominated by solo artists sweet love songs and easy listening tunes.

Wurm was released in late 1997, and was a big, the more adventurous set, truly a landmark album which reached platinum status (40000 units). Sales lower than those obtained by Semenelin can perhaps be attributed in part to the decline in the rock movement, which began several years ago. This, however, does nothing to diminish the standard set by Wurm, who was appointed to the NU107 Rock Awards 1998 for Album of the Year, also won his second Artadi singer of the year, and winning Gemora Drummer of his second Year award, while the group took the honours of Listener's Choice and artist of the year.
