In 1994, Hermética, a heavy metal band from Argentina, broke up. Bassist Ricardo Iorio formed, one year later, Almafuerte, with guitarist Claudio "El Tano" Marcielo and drummer Claudio Cardacci.
In 1995 they released their first studio album, Mundo Guanaco, which included songs of both Hermética and of V8(another of Ricardo Iorio's previous bands), and some new ones written by Iorio (most of them dealing with social issues). After the release of their second album, Del Entorno, Cardacci was replaced by Rodolfo Márquez. Read more on Last.fm
