Leviathan celebrates 35 years of its creation
the alicantinos Leviathan They celebrate the 35th anniversary of its foundation and commemorate it this Saturday in the Babel room with invited artists and former members of the band, as well as sharing the stage with the Valencian Sagrat.

The bill includes the Valencian Sagrat, a veteran band made up of several former members of Zarpa -such as the guitarist Serafín Mendoza-, who will present their work Legado Sagrado.
Leviathan was formed in 1987 with Kiko Mora (voice and keyboards), Emilio Modino (guitar), the brothers Txus Alaminos (guitar) and Patxi Alaminos (bass) and Moncho Pujol (drums), the year in which they made their debut at the Alicante bullring at parties August at the festival «Heavy is not violence». “From there we began to open for the national bands that came through Levante such as Barón Rojo, Sangre Azul, Extremoduro, Ñu…”, recalls Emilio. Despite their activity at that time, the group only recorded one single as they were the winners of the 1991 rock circuit, which included the songs Lolita and El fugitivo.
The group ceased its activity around 93-94 and resumed it in 2014 and since then they have released three albums, the last of which is Katharsis, which is the one they are presenting in recent concerts. The previous albums are Leviatán from 2014 and Todo sigue igual from 2017, where they collect some of the usual songs that could never be recorded in their day, «since in the 90s going to a studio was excessively expensive, unless you had a camera behind you. record company, and in those years, unless you were in Madrid or Valencia, in this Levantine area, the support of companies was practically nil, and more so for heavy metal”, emphasizes Emilio Modino
The group’s guitarist explains that «during those years we worked based on demos recorded on eight tracks that were distributed through small stores like UFO or Discos Merlin. Curiously, these models reached different parts of Spain with news of them in Madrid, in the north in Andalusia, and even in South America ».
«With the opening of the Facebook page, back in 2012, many fans began to encourage us to return and do a tribute concert to that time, which we carried out in 2013 in Las Cigarreras together with Acero and Bronka at the Meta Alacant festival. . From then on, and since the repertoire was assembled, we decided to continue immersing ourselves in recording new songs until today that we are still active, “adds Emilio.

The Euterpe room, in San Joan, begins the concerts of the new year with a prestigious singer-songwriter such as the Mallorcan victoria lerma , who will be in said room on Friday at 10 p.m. to present, together with his band, his recent work At high speed. A very appropriate title for the development of her career since this is her fourth album in which, as in the others, Victoria makes a journey into the interior of the human being with a healing vocation through her lyrics. Lerma does not hesitate to bare her soul to name the doubts that arise and thereby unleash an avalanche of feelings with such beauty and truth that we believe that this young Spanish voice is destined to be one of the great singer-songwriters in the coming years. months and her name, Victoria, is the best omen.
