Fast Taker was created with one goal in mind, to bring Heavy Metal to the place it deserves. Formed in 2003, but after several line-up changes , it wasnt until 2004 when the dream of the lead vocalist, Gabriel Coln and the bass player Hector Torres started to take form when they hook up with one of the most genius guitar player theyve have seen (Yamil Gonzles) and weeks later a very experienced drummer is recruited (Jos Coln) to complete the line-up. Their unmatched and sometimes controversial attitude added to their shocking stage performance making this band a true torchbearer in the Heavy Metal scene. While recording their first self titled 7 song EP, Fast Taker have been extremely active playing all around the island and more shows including some festivals are on their way thanks to the fans request. Not being enough, the band also has taken the radio by storm with not one but two songs getting heavy airplay and even making it to the top 20 in their very first week and top 10 after 3 weeks in the most important rock station in P.R. Their first single I can see, has been one of the most requested songs, making them the first local heavy metal band to get such attention in years. In June 2005 Fast Taker released their self titled 7 song EP, which is being distributed by Khaosmaster productions worldwide. In October 2005, do to their quick success Fast Taker was chosen to be the opening band for heavy metal legends Megadeth. In November 2005 Fast Taker was nominated for best heavy metal band in the second annual IXA awards celebrated in P.R., dedicated to all local entertainment. These awards will take place in April of 2006. Concluding a great year for the band in 2005, Fast Taker has started 2006 very strong by playing at the Florida State Fair, the Brass Mug and the Masquerade in Florida and are now in the process of writing new material for their upcoming album and will probably enter studio at the beginning of 2006, in the process they will keep playing around the island and in the USA, they will seek to release their new album in the beginning of 2007.
