If you scan over any music show listing in Chicago, you most likely won’t see a lack of local and international metal bands performing across the city. The genre is powerfully showcased in a range of styles. Whether you’re down for deathcore or symphonic, to power metal and everything in between – like glam, doom, and goth, oh my – Chicago’s metal bands continue to be an active part of the city’s music community.
Sunday, Feb 26 is a great example of global metal sounds coming together as El Chopito Records and friends host one of Spain’s most successful heavy metal bands, Saratoga. The band visits Chicago for a performance at Subterranean and will be joined by True Hidden Conspiracy and Death Wish. Tickets available here.

Saratoga started in August 1992 when Jerónimo Ramiro “Jero”, well-known guitarist that recorded three albums with ÑU and founded in the 80’s the group SANTA where he also recorded three albums, and Niko del Hierro, bass player that recorded with Jero in the year 1990 the disk “DOS AÑOS DE DESTIERRO” (TWO YEARS IN EXILE) by ÑU, who at that time was member of BARON ROJO, with whom he had recorded “DESAFIO” (CHALLENGE) in 1992, decided to create a band where they can show their real composition and playing style, getting closer to a different and more heavy metal sound, away of what they have been doing with their former bands where the music was other people’s composition and it was also more hard rock in the case of BARON ROJO or more folk rock in the case of ÑU.
