The band was established in 1988 and discharged their introduction with 4 demo tapes like: "Live", "Demo tape" or "Idem" in 1991, 1992 and 1993. Since the arrival of their fourth "Something's burning" in 1995, which contained the first full lenght album of the band, they were tenderly by her fans as a kind of punk music and attitude influenced. GARGOLA were constantly known for their noteworthy live shows and played so far various times in clubs and at celebrations far and wide and were with groups like Deep Purple and Blind Guardian an other metal bands, but also bands from the spanish hardcore / punk scene (La Polla Records, Subterranean Kids, Accio Directa, Spatek, La Banda Trapera, Inadaptats, Beer Mosh, etc.). GARGOLA did something that will go down in the spanish metal history, to make thrash-metal with a clean, smart and well produced sound, with a punk and honest attitude. They were not a classical "political band" but they have some clear principles. Strictly musical is a must to mention bands like Black Sabbath, Metallica or Megadeth and some little punk / Discharge influences. I think its music has nothing to do with fast thrash-metal or speed-metal at all, but rather into slow and loud "groove". There is also a little thing, better said, a curiosity, the drums player was also the vocalist of the band, something really difficult to make, sure. Considered a definitive document of the catalonian metal scene, "Something's burning" features rare and otherwise unreleased recordings, including the first recorded material by the band, as well as material late 80s. If you like bands like Black Sabbath, Discharge or even Metallica, you can try with them. Be careful, the GARGOLA... could be alive...
