Biography

Watchmen was started by Ivan Sención in April 2003, as a way to form a band matching his musical preferences and influences.
With that in mind, Ivan first contacted the guitarists Rodrigo Gudiña and Emmanuel López , and it wasn´t long till the drummer Eduardo Giardina and the bassist Germain Leth joined the new project.
Along with keyboard player Guillermo D'Medio, as guest musician, the band recorded their first demo at the "Doble B" studio containing two songs “On the Road” and “Living The Heartache”, it was released in May 2003. Since then, the band has been spreading all over the world. Watchmen's songs have already been broadcasted in several European and American radio stations, such as Hardrocking 80s, an on-line Chicago´s radio station, where the band climbed to number one on the chart and stayed on top for 2 weeks.
Late October 2003, Charlie Giardina ( bassist and singer of Hardway and steady bassist of former Mr. Big Singer Eric Martin) joined in as a guest keyboard player while Rodrigo Gudiña decided to leave Watchmen to dedicate full-time to his own band, Ariadna Project. With this line up: Ivan Sención (Voice), Germain Leth (Bass), Emmanuel López (Guitar), Eduardo Giardina (drums) and guest musician Charlie Giardina (keyboards) the band started to compose some of the songs that would later appear on their first album.

In July 2004, the band entered the recording studio to start their first album sessions, with Leandro Bordicelli as sound engineer.
In October 2004 Eduardo Giardina left the band, being replaced by Sergio "Dukke" Del Duca (former drummer of Kefren and Kerosene).
As a consequence of Watchmen´s performance in the "3° Cavern Rock Festival" contest, the band was invited by Mr. Dave Jones (owner of the The Cavern Club -Liverpool) and John Lennon´s sister Julia Baird to give a series of gigs in England.Leonardo Palmieri (who was playing in Rata Blanca´s singer Adrián Barilari soloist band ) became a steady member during this contest.
