It´s been 30 years since I bought this album: Metalmorfosis. It´s a very special one, well, it´s the most special one indeed, because this work was the first record I bought myself. I was only 10, and I can clearly remember how I found it in a department store in Huelva, the album had just arrived and the clerk unboxed it for me. It was summer 1983, and I was with my parents, my brother and my sister camping in a village called Mazagón. I saw the band a few weeks ago on a TV show while I was with my parents in an old tavern called Las Palomas near home, and that shocked me: guys with long hair and electric guitars…oh my god!!! What´s that!! What´s that music!!! I felt something strange in my stomach (and that was no hunger). That was the first metal band I listened in my life. I had no record player and I had to find someone who recorded it into a cassette so I could enjoy it on my mom´s player… after that, other bands came across: Iron Maiden, Obús, White Snake, Scorpions, Judas Priest, Helloween… and all of them told me two things I had to learn: English and play guitar.
… and that´s how my lifetime relationship with metal music began, a relationship that has grown up and today it´s the meaning of my life. It´s what makes me smile, what makes me dream, what makes me feel, what gives the sense to my life, to wake up every morning and go to work every day, to overcome hard times, to survive routine…
Long Life Barón Rojo. Larga vida al Barón.
