Asfalto biography
Spanish outfit ASFALTO were born in 1972, when rock band Tickets decided that a change of moniker was needed. In the first few years the band experienced a series of line-up changes, but by 1975 a stable version of the band had settled in the shape of José Luis Jiménez (vocals, bass), Julio Castejón (guitar, vocals), Enrique Cajide (drums) and Lele Laína (guitar, vocals).

In 1977 they were signed by newly formed Chapa Discos, a sub-label of Spanish label Zafiro, and in 1978 the band made their debut with Asfalto, an affort containing several tracks considered classics by their fans. The band itself weren't all together happy with the end result though, and Jimenez and Laina decided to leave the band shortly after the album release.

Castejon and Cajide decided to continue on as Asfalto, and brought in Jorge Walter García Banegas (keyboards) and José Ramón Pérez (bass) as new members. This revamped line-up released Al Otro Lado towards the end of 1978. !!Ahora!! followed in 1979, and the double album Dejalo Asi in 1981. Label problems saw Asfalto leave Chapas Discos in 1981, and they decided that it would be better to set up a label of their own, Snif.

Mas Que Una Intencion was to be the first production released on their newly formed label, and this album also sported a new member in their line-up, in the shape of Miguel Oñate (vocals). In 1984 Cronophobia is released. This would be the last album Onate participates on, as he decides to leave the following year. Ricardo Benítez (vocals) is recruited as his replacement, and he makes his band debut on the 1986 effort Corredor de Fondo. His tenure proves to be brief though, and at the end of 1986 he decides to opt out of Asfalto, citing personal reasons for the decision. Cajide, Perez and Bangeas left the band the following year, and a period of inactivity followed.

Asfalto returned in 1990 with the album Sólo por Dinero. Band leader Castejon is accompanied by returning old members Jimenez and Leina on this production, with new man Terry Barrios (drums, vocals) as the final member of the revitalized band. Barrios sadly pass away in 1992, after which Cajide decides to return as their drummer. This version of the band would release one studio production, El Planeta de Los Locos in 1994, but by the end of 1995 Asfalto decided to call it quits.

Band leader and sole remaining forming member Castejon decided to reform Asfalto in 2008. With an all new line-up consisting of himself, ...

Special Collaborator Neo Prog Team

3 stars Among the popular Rock bands from Spain, Asfalto from Madrid emerged from the group Tickets in early-70's, but it wasn't until the mid-70's when the group had a stable core on Jose Luis Jimenez (vocals, bass), Julio Castejon (guitar, vocals), Enrique Cajide (drums) and Lele Laina (guitar, vocals).In 1976 the band performed a tribute album to The Beatles, entitled ''Homenaje a Los Beatles'', and the next year they were signed by Zafiro.In 1978 Asfalto made their self-titled debut on Zafiro's sub-label Chapa Discos.

The debut of Asfalto was a full-blown Hard Rock album with slight prog inspirations, featuring dual guitar leads, expressive Spanish vocals and definitely among the more deep bass works to find in the genre.Most of the tracks are short and catchy with some impressive guitar parts and good solos, while even the vocal melodies sound pleasant.A Hard Rock sound with a nice balance between stronger and lighter moments is here and there supported by a proggier style.''Capitan trueno'' is a beautiful Symphonic/Spanish Rock with a beautiful flute melody repeating among its rockier parts.The short ''Todos los dias'', despite performed with a classic rock instrumentation, bursts a light symphonic flavor due to the great guitars and interesting vocals.Even the long ''Quiero irme: la huida'' has its moments with acoustic guitars, impressive electric guitar workouts and more space for instrumental madness.

This is still a typical Hard Rock album from Spain, but the music is sometimes too good to simply pass this one by.Recommended, especially if you like Spanish Prog-related Rock music.
