It all started during 1992 in the city of Lima(Perú), with brothers “Eduardo Leiva” and “Cesar Leiva”. They began as most musicians of the time, in garage bands, trying different trends and sounds of the underground scene in Lima.
It is in that time when they decided to name the band “Arian 1” after the French space program and rocket, which meant a great deal of always changing and evolving technology.
In the beginning, they experimented with different styles of electronic music which later (1993-94) were defined as “EBM” [electronic body music].
After a long break [2000 – 2006], “Arian 1” comes back in 2007 with a New Single [CD + DVD] called: “Machine Gun” with the help of Southamerican producers Eduardo Neira, Ivo Draganac & the Peruvian label “TDV”, also they presented a video clip for this release filmed in New York and Los Angeles Ca. (under film directors: Irina Garmash & Marco Ortiz).
The 2009 release was the “Evolution“ LP [Limited Edition] launched in June by the sponsor “Skyshield operations”. In fact some time before launch Eduardo´s invited Mariano López (ex “Vigilante” Keyboards) to Join the new line-up of the band.
The last 2010 release was “ Immersion” LP in this work they began and experimented with different styles in the electro music scene. then the band signed with Latin American label “Orion Records” and thanks to they started a new era in cooperation and distribution with the best and most influence alternative labels around the globe.
Now Arian 1 are probably best described as a bit harder Futurepop mixed with industrial sounds and some EBM. With easy, but yet very addictive melodies that easily stuck to your mind.
