Rata Blanca is the first album by the Argentine metal band of the same name recorded in 1988 by Polygram.

Recording history[edit]

Vocalist Saúl Blanch left the band before recording the album. After his departure, a number of other singers, such as Carlos Perigo and Shito Molina, took his place. Molina was supposed to be the singer in the album, but he left because of a throat illness. As a result, the band, pressed for time, decided to re-recruit Blanch for the recordings. After the recording of the album and some presentations, Blanch left the band, which then recruited Adrián Barilari.


All lyrics by Walter Giardino except where noted. The songs Preludio Obsesivo and El Ultimo Ataque originally written and composed by Giardino appeared as if penned by Roberto Conso, as part of a debt settlement.
