Dreams Fantasies & Nightmares: La Biblia was their magnum opus. A concept album based on the Holy Bible! It's mostly guitar-driven and on cuts like Genesis, Moises and Profecías there are plenty of pleasing and melodic guitar moments. Contrast is provided too by the fast-paced heavy rocker Las Guerras and the slower, melodic guitar of Libros Sapienciales. There's a lush orchestrated intro on Cristo Y Nacimento and the final cut Apocalipsis is notable for some good axework. Yody Godoy left the group during the recording sessions for this album. To help promote it axeman Nacho Smilari (ex-La Barra de Chocolate) joined up. This line-up recorded a non-album single, Donde Has Esatdo Tedo Este Tiempo.
For their next album Jeremías Piers De Plomo the trio reverted back to a hard rock and blues format epitomised by the title cut. It's notable for Soulé's fine guitar and harmonica playing. It includes a reasonably pleasant ballad Sin Separamos Más, the title track, which along with Ritmo Y Blues Con Armónicas, appeared on a rare picture sleeve single, and Detrás Del Vidrio, which came in two parts. Juntando Semillas En El Suelo had a decidely country feel to it and Esta Noche No Parere Igual veered more towards blues.
Cuero Caliente was a re-recording of their debut album with one cut No Es Por Falta De Suerte omitted. In its place appeared two single cuts Azúcar Amarga and Dr. Jekill. Overall, it comes across better than Caliente. Vox Dei appeared in the movie "Rock Hasta Que Se Pong El Sol" playing Jeremias, Pies De Plomo and Las Guerras. Unfortunately, it was not captured on the obligatory soundtrack album.
They signed to CBS in 1973 and released Es Una Nube, No Hay Duda for CBS. One of their better albums it's highlights included the classic title track, the bluesy Prométeme Que Nunca Me Dinás Adiós, the rhythmic La Vendadera Historia De Sam El Montañes and the deliberate El Paisan Y La Codrniz. Es Asi Y No Hay Nada Que Hablar is an appealing slow bluesy number. Loco, Hacela Cállar features some nice guitar moments and some good ringing guitar is also evident on the final cut El Mañana Es Otra Historia.
They completed their contract with Disc Jockey with a live album. Recorded during an Argentinian tour La Nave Infernal included old and unreleased songs. Unfortunately, their enthusiastic performance is marred by rather poor sound quality.
After a second, less distinguished album for CBS in 1974, Vox Dei Para Vox Dei, Ricardo Soulé left the band. He headed for Britain, where he met The Heavy Metal Kids, who recorded some of his songs on their debut album.
The remaining members recorded Extamos En La Pecera with Carlos Michelini coming in on guitar and vocals, but it was disappointing compared to what had preceded it.
Quiroga and Basoalto released a couple of further albums with different line-ups and Soulé briefly rejoined the band in 1978 for a new album Gata De Noche (Polydor 2387160). They split soon after but have had a number of reunions since.
Soulé recorded a couple of solo albums in the eighties and Willie Quiroga formed Destroyer, a heavy metal combo who put out an album in 1982.
