Mago de Oz

There is a great spanish band that maybe you have never heard about. They are called mago de Oz and have several studio and live albums. The music they play are such a kind of 80´s hard rock mixed with celtic and folk instruments (violins and diverse types of flutes). Call it progressive if you want. The lead guitar player is an ibanez fan and uses a RG 550 with modified pickups and a greeen RG with piezos (I don´t know which model). Also a red jackson soloist apears sometimes. To those who are looking for virtuosism, there are tones of it. The singer is one of the best I´ve ever heard. The only problem for you is that the lyrics are written in spanish. Anyways check out any album of them. I suggest "La Costa del Silencio". Be sure you´ll enjoy them.

They were my first hard rock band! I was introduced to soloing thanks of Juan Valdivia, then liked Slash thanks of him, then Metallica and finally jumped to Vai. Sadly I couldn´t attend to any of their shows, but saw Bumbury a few years ago with his own band. My fav of them is Avalancha, more rock than pop. Their best song... Iberia Sumergida for me!

So glad to know you´ve heard about our rock bands overseas!

Re: Mago de Oz

Have you hear o'funkillo??
It's a mix between RATM, Jamiroquai... not really my style as I'm more an 80's fan but they do something "different" they're great on stage.
Also check a Mallorquin group called Flying Dogs (Linkin Park style). They're Great at Stage as well!

yes, Pepe Bao is a bass beast! I saw them one or two years ago in an open air festival. Also I´ve heard him playing with Tony G. Hernando, who has a great Ibanez collection (including some Jems and Universes). He is an Ibanez endorser an has designed his own 7 string axe (TH7). I haven´t seen this guitar in any catalogue yet.

...and Dean Markley endorser.. I'm also waiting to see the TH7 Specs. (any idea?)
Pepe is great. IMO he is the soul of the group.
