Azero was born in Vina del Mar, Chile, in 1989. The band had five members initially; Jaime Scalpello (Vocals), Mauricio Urzua (Keyboards), Juan Andres “Jote” Anderson (Lead Guitar), Jorge “Coke” Aldayus (Drums), and Rene “Rana” Mori (Bass). The band was ready to play after many months of practice and trying in developing a great sound to play covers of different bands. But something unusual was about to happen. Jaime, with his brother Pablo Scalpello, who played guitar, and Mauricio, made a trio to play more efficiently. They started performing in bars on the busy nights of the city. Despite the other excellent and talented players, they rapidly sensed that the trio had an incredible and majestic energy with the audience. For them, this alternative was the magic formula.

The trio Azero rapidly captured the busy and bohemian night scene at the bar circuits. They played covers of The Police, Rod Stewart, Poison, Foreigner, Bon Jovi, U2, and Soda Stereo in the Latino side. This was the beginning of Azero with a more dramatic and serious performance approach than the rest of the other regional circuit bands. They quickly captured the eye of the audience who saw them performing at different important stages in the central area of the Chilean country. Also, Azero began to develop as one of the most intense and promising bands of the underground Rock & Pop of the ’90s, along with other bands like Aleste, La Ley, Los Tres, and others from the national circuit.

After many years playing in the circuit on different stages around the country, including their original creations, they decided to integrate a new member into the band. They invited Fabian “Zuku” Verdun, originally from Argentina, to play the drums. They decided to put together a demo with this new formation to be listened by the record labels. During those years, the music business was controlled entirely by the national labels and radios. A great friend of the band, Gonzalo Canales, invested his money to record in Santiago, Chile, Azero’s first professional demo. After recording on 1992 in “Procor” Studio, they put together a package with professional photos and a ten songs demo. In 1993 they were signed by Polygram. After mixing the production with Mariano Pavez at “Magna” Studios in Santiago, Chile, they released their first album LP called Azero. They released their first single “Por Mi Piel” (On your skin,) a soft rock melodic ballad dedicated to their fans. The single included a video produced by Gonzalo Gallardo and Hector Navarro. It was a 16mm cinema video which was watched on all the most prominent television channels around the country and internationally, including MTV Latino from Miami, USA. Their second single was “Budapest,” a song that touches the atrocities of Hungary’s Jew genocide and the undercover Nazi’s troop escaping at the end of WWII.

In 1995, and under “Discos Mayra” licenses, Azero released their second LP called “La Biblia Segun Azero,” a remake LP of Vox Dei, the ’70s famous Argentinian band.  Vox Dei sold more than a million copies in their country of the original LP. The single called “Genesis” was released in 1996 to radios and other parts of South America. The producer, Antonio Alderete, also participated in the original production of the ’70s. The LP tells the history’s Bible and Jesus. The production begins with the Big Bang, Genesis, the Prophecies ending with the Apocalypses. This super production was recorded in “Sonus” Studio in Santiago, Chile, and mixed at Panda Studio in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
