Spanish heavy metal band Barricada was formed in the early '80s by singer/bassist Enrique "El Drogas" Villareal, who was joined by ex-N+¬mesis guitarist Javier Hern+índez, drummer Mikel Astrain, and ex-Kafarma+¦n singer/guitarist Sergio Oses, making their live debut in 1982. Soon, guitarist Alfredo Piedrafita replaced Sergio Oses. In 1983, independent label So+¦ua released the band's debut album, called Noches de Rock & Roll. On April 2, 1984, musician Mikel Astrain passed away, victim of a brain tumor. Drummer Fernando Coronado took his place. To celebrate Astrain's contribution, the group composed a song called "Pon Esa M+¦sica de Nuevo," included in Barricada's second album, Barrio Conflictivo, which was issued by RCA and followed by 1985's No Hay Tregua. After signing up to PolyGram, the rock act recorded No Se Que Hacer Contigo and Rojo, produced by Dennis J. Herman and released in March of 1988. A self-titled double album came out later, recorded live on January 19, 20, and 21, 1990. ~ Drago BonacichPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
