The story of Burden Rage starts as a Melodic Death Metal Project in the mid 2006 under the name of Stillborn. After a while, the group was obliged to change the name due to the large number of bands bearing the same denomination...
Having Yalal in drums, Pablo Perez in guitar, Victor Martin as singer and Pablo Toirán in bass, they start their first rehearsals, some covers from bands such as Cannibal Corpse, At the Gates and Arch Enemy as well as creations of their own, namely the first versions of Scarecrow and Enough.
Soon afterwards, Víctor and Pablo Perez decided to quit the band and leave Pablo and Yalal leading the group. This is the moment when, after a long and difficult search, bass player Jorge Furno arrives and Pablo starts to perform first guitar.
Half a year rehearsals later, the need of a vocalist arises. Pablo recalls Mario, an old mate, who has the very voice style the group is aiming.
Around August 2007, the group—Jorge, Mario, Pablo and Yalal— definitely oriented towards Classic Death Metal kept rehearsing and composing for a long time.
In spite of their improvements, the lack of another guitarist to make the songs sound more powerfully was noticeable. Besides, due to the latter reason, the band rejects some live concert offers on the grounds that their members should wait till they are the complete number to produce both, good sound and good image.
At last, by means of trial and error, Ignacio Vulcano turns up and by June 2008 he gets himself involved into the Project. Eventually, the band performed their brand new concert on Saturday 27th September 2008 in a "redoubt" at Villa Devoto. Pablo and Nacho on guitars; Yalal at drums; Jorge on bass and Mario in voices.
Later that year they released their first demo entitled "2nd Coming", independently produced, which includes 3 songs in studio and 3 live. The material was mixed and mastered by Pablo Toirán.
Two major events take place in July 2009: on the one hand, the band decided not to keep Mario as singer and on the other hand, Yalal quits alleging personal reasons.
Having neither a drummer, nor a singer, the rest of the band are determined not to give up; instead, they make up their minds and record the whole number of themes they had created so far in order to have material for the quest of the missing members.
Thus, they invite Gonzalo Shawn, one of Nacho's friends, with whom he had previously played in another band. He performs voices. Gonzalo shows a wide variety of nuances and great volume of voice which suits the style the band is looking for.
By the end of May 2010, after a demanding search, Enzo Logozzo becomes the band drummer proving himself a skilful musician and gaining a deserved place in Burden Rage.
In March 2011, after some toing and froing, Burden Rage succeeded in launching their second independently produced demo under the name of “Walk over the Crushed Skulls”. A four track demo with a more professional sound compared to that “home-made” one previously recorded.
By the end of April 2011, Enzo Logozzo, due to personal and artistic differences, decides to quit. This decision was agreed by the rest of the band.
In spite of being a significant loss, the band make up their minds to continue with their project showing the same professionalism they had shown at the beginning of their career and trying to gain the largest number of “Metal Hearts” at both national and international levels.
Within months the drummer Eduardo Turco joins the band, who made several live performances and was responsible for learning the new band’s material to record their first album.
"The Spiral Black Hole", their first album, finally sees the light by the end of 2012, which leads them to play at several local festivals.
After one year Matias Barrionuevo decides to step down for personal reasons. The band continues playing live with a single guitar to keep the great momentum that marked the disc, having opportunity to perform within the country and even in Montevideo, Uruguay.
After an arduous search, Martin Madariaga joins the band in early 2015. Throughout this year the band continued with live performances and writing a lot of material for the second album, which will be available during 2016.
