Artist Biography by

Venezuelan Latin rock band Témpano was formed in 1977 by ex-Diedra and Magia drummer Gerardo Ubieda, singer/guitarist Pedro Castillo, bassist Miguel Angel Echevarreneta, and Leonardo Arias. In 1979, having Giuglio Cesare Della Noce on keyboards, Témpano recorded its first album, called Atabal Yemal. It is considered to be the first symphonic rock album produced in Venezuela. A year later, Pedro Castillo left the act to form a new project called P.P.S. When singer Zdenek Matousek and bass player Víctor Fiol joined in, the group recorded Pesadilla Sin Final, released in 1981. After Miguel Angel Echevarreneta left the band in 1983, guitarist Rubén Angel Correa joined in, recording ...en reclamación, followed by 1984's Seducción Subliminal. Soon after signing up to Sony Music, Témpano issued a self-titled pop/rock-oriented album, including La Unión's "Lobo Hombre En Paris." After releasing 1988's El Tercer Lado, the band broke up temporarily, returning in May of 1998.
