History of the bandEdit

BeginningsEdit

Buitres was formed after Los Estomagos' dissolution, and it originally had three of its members, Gabriel Peluffo as the lead singer, Gustavo Parodi on guitar and Marcelo Lasso on the drums. Jose Rambao joined in as the bass player, he had a short participation as the Los Estomagos' bass player when its original bass player was absent because of health problems.

First yearsEdit

In March 1990, they published their eponymous debut under the Orfeo label which was composed of 13 songs, 4 tracks being covers from other bands. And the next year they published another album, called "La Bruja" which had mostly original material, except for a Johnny Thunder's cover.

First successEdit

In 1993 they published a Boxset which included their first two albums and also released a new album called "Maraviya". Both of them received high sales and reached the Gold-disc distinction. That same year they performed their first big concert at the Teatro de Verano, in front of more than five thousand people.

In 1994 they went on their first tour and during 1995 they started playing in Argentina. That same year the videoclips from the songs "Calaveratur" and "Del Cardál" (a Eustaquio Sosa cover) were aired on MTV.

Legal issues and successEdit

Up to that point their albums where being published by Orfeo which was then acquired in 1996 by EMI. Due to contractual obligations they quickly released an album called "El Amor Te Ha Hecho Idiota" (Love Has Made You An Idiot), which included 9 new versions of previously released songs, plus 3 new tracks.

Because of legal issues caused by the sale of Orfeo, they weren't able to perform any concert through all of 1997. In that period of time the first alignment change was made: the drummer, Marcelo Lasso, left the band and was replaced by Irvin Carvallo.

At the end of 1998, with Jaime Roos as a producer, they released a new album, called "Rantifusa" which was a sales success.

In 1999, they had a 3 hours long gig in which they performed 42 songs at the Teatro de Verano in front an audience of 7000 people. That same recital gave place to two live albums which were released in 2000. The first one was certified gold in less than ten days, and both reached platinum in less than three months.

More successEdit

In 2000, the drummer left the band and was replaced. In 2001, they edited their new album "Buena suerte... hasta siempre". They also completed their first tour in all Uruguay. In 2003 they released the "Mientras" album and in 2004 the "Periplo" DVD. In 2005 the most significant alignments were made: new drummer and the bass player become the 2nd guitarist, so a new bass player was joined. In 2006 they performed a multitudinary concert in "Velodromo Municipal de Montevideo" in front of more than 7,000 people. As a result, they released a disc and a DVD. In October 2007 they released a new album called "Cancion de cuna para vidas en jauria". In 2009 they celebrated their 20-year anniversary with a new concert and a radio program called Justicia Infinita, as a tribute, releases 20 covers done by important artist in the national ambit: La Vela Puerca, Jorge Nasser, Carmen Pi, Buenos Muchachos, La Teja Pride, Once Tiros, Trotsky Vengarán, Chala Madre, Vendetta, Vieja Historia, El Ultimo De Los Ramones, Socio, La Triple Nelson, Hereford, No Te Va Gustar, Closet y La Saga.
