Minerva was the Roman goddess of Wisdom and sponsor of the arts, trade, and defense. She was born from the godhead of Jupiter with weapons that has come to the Bay Area to defend Rock music.
David Carrasco (Drums) and Mauricio Cavero (Lead Guitar) played together in a previous band. They left this band in search of a new sound characteristic of good ole’ Rock and in January 2013 MINERVA was born. The union between Rebecca (lead singer), David and Mauricio developed when they collaborated on a song in the previous band. Rebecca was interested in collaborating with David and Mauricio again on her song project. The timing and chemistry was absolute. They knew they had found the voice they were looking for together with a great personality. In the beginning of MMXIII (2013), David contacted Rebecca and MINERVA started to take shape. Luis Martin (Rhythm Guitar and vocals) and Mauricio met each other at a bar where the discussion of Spanish Rock was as fluid as the flow of our beer. To say that Luis Martin is a grand connoisseur of music is an understatement and to define him as guitarist or vocalist is to underestimate his skills. His versatility with instruments, along with his voice and knowledge of music made him the ideal choice to share the position of front man. We were lucky that Rebecca and Luis understood each other perfectly from the first key.
MINERVA already had a body but we were missing the shield to battle. This is how Jose Estrella (Bass guitar) comes into play. Rebecca has known Jose for many years and they also played together in different musical collaborations so he was an obvious choice for our band. We are so proud that Jose serves as our holy shield in this war. And this is how MINERVA, an exceptional group of warriors, came to rock the Bay Area.
Acido, aspero, desapacible, acerbo, estridente, destemplado, avinagrado es significado verbal de esta palabra. Como grupo de rock AGRIA quiere contemplar la manera de un sonido melodico, ethereo y mundano que busca florecer en las mentes como una muestra de arte abstracto quitando los fundamentalismos plasmados por la monotonia de lo tipico. Bien se puede decir que la banda esta influenciada por musica de los 80's y 90's, hay que ver adentro de la creacion de un sonido protagonizado por musicos Mexicanos que provienen de influencias como el hard-core, Metal, punk, blues, rock and roll y del escritor de las mismas, un Colombiano, influenciado por Garcia Marquez, Jose asuncion Silva, y Pablo Neruda. AGRIA, De San Jose California, es un concepto inexplicable lleno de matizes fulminantes cual si fuera templo en obra negra y congregaciones desconocidas, por esta humilde razon, estan cordialmente invitados a escuchar estas composiciones y ser parte de el sudor, horas de trabajo, tragos compartidos, y cigarros fumados que fueron ingredientes al momento de realizar esta produccion. De igual manera no esta de mas la invitacion a nuestros eventos donde podras apreciar AGRIA en vivo compartiendo escenarios con bandas locales del area de la bahia.
