Tierra Santa

Biography/History

Tierra Santa (1997-2008, 2010-present): a Power Metal band from Logroño, La Rioja, Spain.

U

nder the founding membership of Tomy (keyboards), Roberto Gonzalo (bass/vocals (backing)), Arturo Morras (guitars/vocals (backing)), Ángel San Juan (vocals (lead)/guitars), Iñaki Fernández (drums), Tierra Santa would start their career to eventually become one of the biggest heavy metal bands out of Spain, a far cry from how they started under the moniker Privacy where they released only a single demo in 1993 besides giving it a go between 1991-1997. Recording in Spanish, as Tierra Santa, they would debut in 1997 with Medieval. Óscar Muñoz would be added on keyboards for the follow-up Legendario (1999).

It seems the keyboard slot was a coveted one for by the third and fourth opus, Tierras de leyenda (2000) and Sangre de reyes (2001), it was assumed by Paco (Francisco), but he would be gone by the time Indomable was ready in 2003.

After the live set, Las mil y una noches (2003), Apocalipsis followed in 2004 with Mikel G. Otamendi now on keyboards; this line-up remained for Mejor morir en pie (2006).
