Caramelos de Cianuro are a band from Venezuela, a country that lives under the terror of violence, where the epidemics of lack of security and lack of an authority have become a part in the daily life, of the hard working and good citizens of this country. That is the colorful story of a nation that tries to survive day by day.
On March 23, 2012, the powerful rock of Caramelos hit the stage with tears and a heavy heart that carries from now on the sorrow of the loss of one of their most important soldiers, their manager, Libero Laizzo who was kidnaped and then murdered, in Caracas, a few hours before the band performed at the monstrous Rock Music Festival, in Mexico City.
One of the biggest cliches in Rock is “The Show must Go On” and that is what Caramelos did exactly, with pain in their hearts , with no strength like in previous concerts that I had the honor to see and hear, and trying to bring light to dark times, while singing all of their hits “El ultimo Polvo”, “Adios Amor”,” Sigo de Pie” and Libero’s favorite Song “Veronica” .
Caramelos de Cianuro showed the world that Venezula is not going to step down and let the criminals that brought a stain to their community, win the battle.
” ROCK N ROLL IS HERE TO STAY NO MATTER WHAT” and CARAMELOS DE CIANURO proved that cliches in music are words to live by.
Thank you Caramelo de Cianuro for your strength! and Rest in Peace, Libero Laizzo!
