The album documented the group's favorite selections from local authors including Antonio Flores and Ángeles del Infierno. The disc that followed, Mi Ciudad, would be what brought Saratoga the public's attention. The project landed a spot on national pop charts like Lista de Afive, one of few heavy metal acts to do so. Inspired to reach beyond the borders of their genre, Saratoga followed with the release of Vientos de Guerra, a record pitched at mainstream audiences.
Attempts to break into the international heavy metal market with the English-language release Heaven's Gate fell short of the mark. A return to pleasing their European and Japanese fan base with Las Puertas del Cielo and the DVD A Morir followed shortly thereafter. The group's next major accomplishment came with their biographical DVD, 1992-2004, which went on to achieve gold status for sales. Their subsequent record, Tierra de Lobos, experienced similar success, opening doors for the group to tour across Europe.
Recent records like El Clan de la Lucha and VII consistently found a favorable place on European sales and airplay charts. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
