Syriak biography
Syriak were formed in 1981 in Maracaibo, Venezuela, by brothers Gustavo Vilchez on guitar and Carlos Vilchez on keyboards. This original formation comprised also of drummer Carlos Nieto , guitarist Eleri Morales and bassist Carlos Bermudez on bass and lead vocals.They started doing cover versions of several American and British bands, which allowed defining their progressive rock, later to develop into their own compositions within this musical style. By the end of 1981, after structuring musical material with lyrics written by Roberto Tarzieris and Eleri Morales and arrangements by Carlos Vilchez, they recorded an album, which was never published or placed on sale, because record companies of the country were not easy accepting their different musical productions.

Later the band has several member changes, mainly in the drummer's spot. Nieto was replaced by Enrique Rincon, Ricardo Chacin and then by drummer Alfredo Carrillo, which gave significant musical contributions in the area with his rhythmic influences from John Bonham of Led Zeppelin and Bill Brufford of King Crimson and Yes. Carrillo played with Syriak for two years, from early 1982 until the end of 1983, being replaced by Jairo Molero, which brought another range of rhythmic contributions and lyrics by participating in the band until 1987. Reputedly this formation recorded a second work in early 86', released the following year, as they entered a long period of hiatus due to family and work commitments.

After several attempts to revive the band, in January 2010 the Vilchez brothers invited the old members to resurrect Syriak's legend. Carlos Bermudez accepted the invitation and they found a new drummer in Edgar Calderon. Bermudez though was not willing to take over the lead vocals, after some auditions they recruited Aristoteles Albornoz, singer of the Pop Rock act KIO. From 2011 and on the new Syriak focused on writing material for a triumphant return after almost 20 years. Finally in early 2015 they released ''Dentro de los Cuentos del Dia", showcasing a group with strong Neo and symphonic influences.
