The Boanerges were born as a threesome in 1990, namely: Aldo (guitar), Chicco (guitar) and Diego (voice). They played initially just for fun, and only when Checco at bass joined them, did the group find its way with Heavy-melodic.
Some drummers alternated in the group, until finally Andrea came in.
In the meanwhile, Chicco left the group to devote himself entirely to painting and comics. He was replaced by Diego, voice and guitar.
After Cristiano replaced Checco, the group started exhibiting. Since July 1999, date of its first concert at the Ristoro Metal Pub www.ilristoro.com, the band gave itself up almost entirely to the Iron Maiden.
And it's just by introducing themselves as "Iron maiden cover band" that they began a series of concerts in the province of Padua and Venice, becoming more and more popular.
Their repertoire got richer, and also thanks to their fans' requests the band asked for the collaboration of Adriano at the keyboards, in order to play some passages from the album Seventh Son of a Seventh Son.
They had the right feeling, and a one-night event became a still lasting friendship.
Another important date for the Boanerges is May 2001, when at the Venetic Concert II in San Donà di Piave they opened the way to the White Skull.
In May 2002 Andrea left the group, and a difficult period began.
Their new drummer Giovanni, in fact, left the stage almost immediately and he was only temporarily replaced by Sandro (who had previously been the drummer of Berserk www.berserkmetalband.com and Shattered www.shattered.it).
Eventually in January 2003 the new drummer Ermes joined in, but only after two concerts another blow: Cristiano had to quit suddenly, out of familiar problems. After much rehearsing he was temporarily replaced by Loris until, in 2004, the situation became stable thanks to Cristiano's coming back.
So, dear friends: WE'RE BACK!
