Full Bio


      Soldier, thrash metal band from Asturias (Spain). Conceived in 2005, the project didn't take form until 2007, however, when young Phil González (lead vocals, guitar), Pei García (bass) and Lucas Díaz (drums) created the first stable lineup in the band.


      Soon they would record their first demo, Killin' D'EMO, which was well-received despite its very basic production and resources. After this recording, Adrián Álvarez joined the band as a solo guitarist, with which the band recorded their second demo, Justice.


      Adrián moves out of town and the band finds a replacement in Hugo Beltrán. The band contemplates recording their first album, but again, they lacked the resources to do so. They decide to record a third demo, Meet Your Society, in 2010.


      Finally, in 2012, the band jumps into action and decides to record a full album at Estudios Dynamita (Asturias). Hugo decides to leave the band and Dani Pérez, a skillful young guitarist, joins Soldier. For two months during summertime, the band records its first full album: Gas Powered Jesus.


      On November 23rd 2012, they presented the album in their hometown, Oviedo, alongside the well-known Spanish thrash band Angelus Apatrida. Since then, they've been playing alongside international bands like Vicious Rumors, Sodom, Overkill or Destruction, and toured with other bands of the Spanish thrash metal scene, like Mutant Squad, Pandemia, Vivid Remorse, Exodia, Dredd, Aggression or, again, Angelus Apatrida.
