Year 2005, Lima - Peru. Oscar J. Martin and Eddy Geott first met when they joined YAWARHIEM, a Power Folk & Symphonic Metal band. Both shared a taste for Melodic Hard Rock and Neoclassical Heavy Metal and spent long hours listening to Europe, Scorpions, Rainbow, Journey, Alcatrazz, Yngwie Malmsteen, Dokken, Ratt.
In those years Oscar J. Martin met Jose Gaona, possessor of a great talent and a wide vocal range. Together with Eddy Geott they recorded a Demo entitled "Love me tonight" under the name of "Dangerous". However, their personal projects separated them for a long time.
Oscar J. Martin lived outside Peru for a few years and achieved great recognition as a guitarist and composer for his work with bands such as ICARUS and ASTRAL FIRE. Today he is recognized as one of the most virtuous guitarists in Peru. Eddy Geott participated in various local bands, adding his characterized melodic and aggressive touch on the 4 Strings. Jose Gaona undertook a successful musical career as a soloist, participating in many musical productions: second in the television program "The Voice PERU" and winner of the singing competition "Los cuatro finalistas". Jose Gaona is considered today one of the best voices of Peruvian Rock.
In mid-2015, Eddy Geott met Adnagun Franco, a very talented young drummer, with whom he understood very well at the rhythmic base. Geott decided to invite Oscar J. Martin to a rehearsal as at that time Oscar had just returned to Lima full of energy and eager to rock. After a pleasant talk, they started playing some covers of Yngwie Malmsteen, Deep Purple, Rainbow, Alcatrazz and Rata Blanca. It was an unforgettable rehearsal, that's why they decided to summon Jose Gaona for a next rehearsal.
After more than 10 years Oscar J. Martin, Jose Gaona and Eddy Geott met again, this time together with Adnagun Franco on drums, they were determined to release all their energy and musical talent. This turned out to be an explosive combination, and Dangerous Project was born.
At the beginning of 2018, the band began working on their first album. Oscar J. Martin was in charge of the composition and pre-production, while Eddy Geott took over the production. However, in the middle of the road, for personal reasons, Renzo Huánuco left the band, so the renowned keyboardist Luber Elend, a musician with extensive experience, incredible performance and mastery of various musical genres, joined the band and sealed the circle, so that the long-awaited Dangerous Project album came to light.
In January 2020, David van Hartingsveldt, head of Shaded Moon Entertainment heard some tracks on Youtube and he aproached the band. He offered them a CD release deal for their debut album. Although the album can already be heard on various platforms in digital form ‘Cosmic Vision’ is released on CD on his label. Unfortunately the COVID-19 epidemic ruined the intended release date and the official release date is now the 1st of September 2020.
