History


GEODA is a musical project created by Facundo López, guitarist and vocalist from Bariloche, Patagonia, Argentina. It is not easy to define the style of GEODA, but we could place it within the genres of melodic and/or technical Death Metal, not far from Thrash Metal, and with some progressive dyes.

Facundo started playing the guitar at the age of 8, and from very young he went into the metal genre with a very personal and defined style. His technically demanding songs, in addition to his constant and disciplined way of working, plus the fact of living in a small and remote city, always generated certain frustration among his partners at the need to dedicate so many hours of rehearsal and work to a project that did not allow a large number of live performances per year. Many musicians went into the project but they always left it prematurely, so GEODA never became a stable band.

But the project took form in 2012 when Facundo that had already enough songs to give shape to a full lenght, decides to record 12 tracks for his debut album "Firebreak" with the participation of Federico Mele and Andrés Zadunaisky, both musicians from Buenos Aires. This album has had very good reception nationally and internationally. GEODA sought here musicality and expression with a raw and organic sound, concepts that also define the lyrics, that relate social and personal issues with the environment, the search for an awakening, and the attempt to break the shackles of a dystopian world to which we are approaching.

Between 2015 and 2016 GEODA had a few gigs in different cities of Argentina, including Buenos Aires, with Leandro Ulecia on bass and "Punky" Condorí on drums, both also from Bariloche.

Between 2016/2017 Facundo recorded 11 demo songs for a new album but since his actual partners couldn't make the commitment that a full album recording demands, he started to look for new international musicians to take this project to a higher level. He contacted Dirk Verbeuren (Megadeth - Soilwork), one of the best drummers in the genre, who accepted the challenge and suggested for the bass his friend, the fretless guru Steve Di Giorgio (Testament - Death - Sadus). The result of this cooperation is the new album titled "Here and Now", released June 7th 2019, a clear evolution of what "Firebreak" was. Maintaining the concepts that defined the first album, "Here and Now" has 11 songs with an unusual variety, maturity and creativity, enriched by the talent and good taste internationally recognized by Dirk Verbeuren and Steve Di Giorgio, who left here one of their best performances.

The "Organic Death Metal" of GEODA has in "Here and Now" its definitive signature. We believe that this album will be for posterity and will find a place of privilege within the most sophisticated and original metal.
