Heroes del Silencio
Heroes del Silencio formed in Zaragoza, Spain in the mid-1980s. Singer-songwriter Enrique Bunbury joined just as the group was gaining fame, and was part of their initial 1987 EP Heroe De Leyenda. The release got such kudos at Madrid's San Isidro Festival that the subsequent full-length El Mar No Cesa quickly went platinum, as did the next several releases. The group lasted into the mid-'90s, transitioning from their early new wave sound to a slightly harder-edged style before Bunbury went solo.
