INDICCO is a new blistering Melodic Rock/ AOR band from Spain founded by singer Indigo Balboa and guitar player Paco Cerezo (ex 91 Suite).

This album also features performances and songwriting contributions by the great Melodic Rock/ AOR musicians Jimi Jamison, Mark Spiro and Tim Pierce.

When Indigo Balboa and Paco Cerezo started to work together in 2008 they felt that their musical talents are a perfect match. At the time the Spanish duo started to compose songs together and founded the band INDICCO, Indigo Balboa had just returned from California where he was working on his second solo album with the well known musician/song writer/producer Mark Spiro and Paco Cerezo had just left the internationally renowned Spanish Melodic Rock band 91 Suite of which he was the co-founder and guitar player.

Three years in the making, “Karmalion” marks INDICCO’s debut album, a pure Melodic Rock affair of international quality, combining fresh new ideas with the classic AOR trademarks of the bands that inspired INDICCO’s sound, like Survivor, Giant, John Waite, Toto and Bad English.

“Karmalion” unites the Spanish Melodic Rock elite with three iconic AOR heavyweights, underlining the high musical standard the band is aiming for :

Jimi Jamison (Survivor), one of the best vocalists of the AOR genre, is sharing lead vocals with Indigo Balboa on three tracks, did backing vocals and co-wrote a song as well.

Mark Spiro (Bad English, Giant, John Waite, Mr. Big) co-wrote and recorded vocals for three songs of the album. He also played piano and keyboards and took care of parts of the production at his studio in Carlsbad, California.

Tim Pierce (Rick Springfield, John Waite, Eric Martin), one of the most in demand session guitar players on the globe is featured on additional guitars.

The album was produced by Indigo Balboa, Paco Cerezo and Mark Spiro and the band INDICCO is completed by Antonio Muñoz (ex-91 Suite) on bass, Lean Martinez (ex-91 Suite) on drums and Angel Valdegrama on keys.

In their home country where they toured with Jimi Jamison and several other international acts the band already won praise for their powerful live sound.

This year INDICCO will be on tour again to promote their album “Karmalion”, on some dates they will be sharing the stage with Jimi Jamison.

Indigo Balboa – Lead Vocals and Additional Keys

Paco Cerezo – Lead and Rhythm Guitars, Backing Vocals and Additional Keys

Angel Valdegrama – Keyboards

Lean Martinez – Drums

Wacken

Sometimes you just need a little bit of luck. Because of a funny coincidence the long lost original recordings from BONFIRE’s appearance at the Wacken Open Air have been discovered. This almost historical piece of music has been sonically updated and will now be released officially.
The German rock legend is releasing the album as a teaser before it’s new studio record ‐ planned for the end of the year. Of course, there have been some BONFIRE‐live records in the past, but on „Live In Wacken“ you can really find different versions of the band’s anthems like „SDI“, „Champion“ or „Ready 4 Reaction“ as well as the song „Wake Up“. An anthem the band hasn’t performed live for quite a long time.
Besides that „Live In Wacken“ offers exclusive bonus tracks. Live versions of the songs „Bells Of Freedom“, „Let Me Be Your Water“ and „Black Night“ from the acclaimed rock opera „The Räuber“ (previously unreleased on CD), the exclusive studio track „Thank You“ and an exciting new version of the ballad „Hold Me Now“ from the last BONFIRE‐studio album „Branded“.
„Live In Wacken“ has been mastered by Maor Appelbaum (Yngwie Malmsteen, Rob Halford, Queensryche) and will be released on the 31st of May 2013 on LZ Records/Sony Music.
