Cargo is a Romanian Heavy Metal band from Timişoara, founded by guitarist Adrian Bărar in 1985.
Two of the current members are from Arad - Adrian Igrişan (vocals) and Octavian Pilan (drums), one is from Hunedoara - Cristian Pup (keyboards) and another one is from Deva - Alin Achim (bass guitar) - but they are all settled in Timişoara. After many changes in the band's lineup, it finally reached stability in 1995: Adrian Bărar (guitar/vocals), Ovidiu "Kempes" Ioncu (vocals), Adrian Igrişan (guitar/vocals), Cristian Pup (keyboards), Alin Achim (bass guitar) and Tavi Pilan (drums). With this lineup they released the majority of their albums: "Povestiri din gară" (Tales from the Train Station) (1992), "Destin" (Destiny) (1995), "Ziua vrăjitoarelor" (Day of the Witches) (1998), and also the album "Cargo şi Corala Teofora - Colinde şi obiceiuri de iarnă" (Cargo and Corala Teofora - Carols and Winter Customs) (1996). Both Ovidiu Ioncu (1995) and Adrian Igrisan (2001) suffered grave injuries in motorcycle accidents. Ioncu's accident was an opportunity for vocalist Adrian Igrisan to temporarily replace him. The year 2003 held new surprises for the band: Cargo was preparing to celebrate its 18 year anniversary with the release of a new album. Unfortunately, the band's plans have taken an unexpected turn: the vocalist (Ioncu) suddenly abandoned the band and moved permanently to Australia. The members decided to go on and have Igrişan replace him as a singer. Their latest album, "Spiritus Sanctus", had been released at the Children's Palace in Bucharest. They plan to release soon a "Best of" album with re-recorded tracks.Wide ThumbClearartFanartBanner User Comments
