Born on August 26, 1979, Rubén Ortiz is the guitarist and songwriter for the alternative metal band EON. With more than 20 years in the Spanish rock and metal scene, he has worked in formations such as: TUCAN ST., NU-EVE and currently at EON. He has shared the stage with well-known Spanish metal artists such as: SÔBER, SANTA TIERRA, SKIZOO, HAMLET or SKUNK DF, as well as internationals such as: LINKIN PARK, EMIR KUSTURICA, LOSTPROPHETS, APOPTYGMA BERZERK and ONE, LACRIMA PROFUNDERE, THE CRÜXSHADOWS, among others, touring France and Germany. In 2009 he began to shape his most ambitious and current project: EON. His first full-length [IN] VISIBLE was launched in 2012, garnering critical reviews from specialized media and tours throughout the country. After this tour and two lineup changes involving drummer and leader positions, EON released their second LP in December 2016, MÉDULA, which conquers the specialized press and fans with its fusion of forcefulness and melody, entering the charts as one of the best Spanish metal albums of the year. The album’s impact reaches its highest level in the middle of the MEDULA tour, when Lars Ulrich, the drummer of METALLICA, recommended EON as one of the best Spanish bands on his radio show It’s electric. During the MEDULA tour, EON gets multiple sold out tickets on the peninsula, in addition to performing at DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL 2018, with world-famous bands like: Guns N ‘Roses, Ozzy Osbourne, Marilyn Manson, Bullet For My Valentine or Avenged Sevenfold. Their appearance at this international festival has placed them in the spotlight, in addition to being recognized as one of the most important bands on the national scene.
