Barilari is a project band from Argentina fronted by the Rata Blanca vocalist Adrián Barilari. The band formed in 2001 due to Adrian's wishes to form a solo project away from the demands of his other bands. In 2003 he invited his friends from Nightwish and Jens Johansson from Stratovarius to become the makeup of this dream. Barilari has been compared to such bands as Tobias Sammet's Avantasia and Ayreon.[citation needed]


Beginning and Demo (2001–2002)[edit]

A demo was released in 2001. This demo has four songs

01. Amo de la Oscuridad (Master of the Dark) 02. La Gran Victoria (Your Private Conquest) 03. Fuera de Aqui (Get out from Here) 04. Heaven and Hell (Black Sabbath)

Barilari (2003–2004)[edit]

The band's first album; which was self-titled, was released during the latter part of 2003. The lineup of the band at this time was only for recording purposes and therefore sessional members were used for live concerts. Both English and Spanish versions of the album were produced and sold commercially.
