History

Baron Rojo was one of the heaviest, more popular and important of Spanish HM bands. The Castro brothers had been in bands since the late 60s. They had good sales in Spain and supported Hawkwind there in 1982. The band recorded an English version of its second album and played at London's Marquee. The group also played at the Reading festival. Barón En Aqualung was recorded in Madrid. Ultimasmentes’ cover artwork references ‘the red baron.’ The band reunited for a show at 2009’s Metalway Festival, which was taking place in June in Zaragoza, Spain. The band was singer and guitarist Carlos de Castro, guitarist Armando de Castro, bassist José Luis Campuzano and drummer Hermes Calabria. From 2009 to 2011 there were two competing versions of Barón Rojo. One featured Sherpa and Calabria. Another one featured the band’s original vocalists and guitarists. The band recreated The Who’s Tommy on the 2012 recording, Tommy Barón. José Luis Morán became the bassist in 2018. Ramakhan died in 2019. He had been in the band in 1991 and 1992.

Barón Rojo is Spanish for the ‘Red Baron,’ which references Manfred Von Richthofen a World War I fighter pilot.
