Absolutely amazing!

At 00:42 in the video when you're talking to James, I can just barely make out what you're saying to him:

Gabe: "Great job on Master of Puppets James. You're almost there, just keep practicing at a slower tempo."

smile.gif Congratulations and I hope many more great things come to you from this.

I'm not sure about the feeling that you describe mate... but I can say I just noticed that the Stadium was full when I saw the pictures later. I didn't note the immensity of the show while we were playing. Even I didn't know that we were using the big lateral screens.

and this is the big moment:



That moment... I know how it feels to be SO into what you have to do, that you don't notice anything else. But seriously man, you are in the Argentinian history books along with Cirse! Congrats once again!

Haha! Never thought of it that way, but it could definitely be the image of a knightly gentleman indeed smile.gif

BTW - have you managed to establish a connection with their management as well? That could open A LOT of doors wink.gif

This is so awesome Gabe biggrin.gif Of all the tens of thousands of bands that exist in the world, only a few have managed to share the stage with Metallica. This is quite an accomplishment, especially considering you're not even in the same genre. This also definitely added a few inches to your Mini Me tongue.gif

But the real question we all have is, did you manage steal Kirk Hammett's Wah pedal?

You guys are on the road to greatness Gabriel, congrats once again! Cirse rocks! cool.gif Have you guys considered recording an album with the vocals in English to perhaps expand your fanbase internationally? Or have you already and I somehow missed it? I love the music, but I wish I could understand more of the lyrics. My Spanish is definitely lacking and maybe just good enough to get me by on vacation. biggrin.gif Thanks for sharing all the great pics and stories!

Perfect! biggrin.gif Now, as Mr. Rich said - the english album versions have to rise up in order to make you guys more well known in Europe and the USA. It would be awesome to tour together in Europe biggrin.gif

Yeah, this is something that we have been thinking during these 10 years. We did some experiments, but never very seriously. We are even trying to reach other Latin American countries. It's difficult and slow when you don't have support and money. We should do some promo gig in México and other countries but it would mean a lot of money to take all the band and the team there. We couldn't do it yet, and we didn't found promoters interested in doing it. I think that this same thing could happen with other countries with the English versions... not sure. We are working hard, and English versions are on the list.

I also talked in other thread about some prejudices that Argentinean people has with local bands that sing in English, that's another thing that makes us think on it twice.

Sorry for the late "congrats" but I didn't see the news that you played the shows until now! Reading through your experience and seeing all the pictures is just amazing. smile.gif It is great that Metallica took the time to meet you guys. The whole experience must have felt surreal.

Sadly, not singing in English does seriously limit the ability of the music to "TRAVEL" as well as it might otherwise if it were sung in either Mandarin or English smile.gif

What's interesting is that it's not just American and British listeners that want songs performed in English, it's pretty much the whole world that prefers it. It's really because English has become such a ubiquitous language that a person in Slovakia probably would rather have music performed in English instead of French, simply because most of the other music they have been exposed to has been in English.

It's also why this Swedish guitar site is in English and not Swedish tongue.gif

I understand perfectly, as we are in the same situation in respect to knowing what we need to do, but lacking the resources at the time being. I would try the following strategy - promote the English versions only outside Argentina and Latin America in general and see what happens. Your fan base can't be angry with you for trying to reach other places of the world, can they?

Hey friends! I have some awesome news for Cirse. This March 29th we will be opening for Metallica!! The show will be done on a big stadium for 55000 assistants, it's already sold out and we are the only opening act that day! On 30th, the band Carajo will be playing.

This is like a dream come true for me... I've never thought I would be sharing stage with one of the biggest rock/metal bands ever. smile.gif smile.gif

Check the stadium where bands like Black Sabbath, Gun's & Roses, U2 and Pearl Jam have already played... ohmy.gif
