The tiny Central American nation of Costa Rica doesn't usually come to mind as a producer of heavy metal bands, but Acero proves that metal lives even in this remote region. The band was formed in 1985 by Jorge Molina and Francisco Pujol. According to the bands official biography, Acero was the first original heavy metal band in Costa Rica.
In 2008 the band releases their new CD titled "En Pie de Guerra" and go back on the road to promote it.
