Time’s Forgotten is a progressive rock/metal band from Costa Rica that has its origins back in 2004 when they formed under founder and keyboardist Juan Pablo Calvo. After that, they’ve released three studio albums as a proper band: A Relative Moment of Peace (2006), Dandelion (2009) and The Book of Lost Words (2012) co-written by Calvo and Ari Lotringer, the band’s lead guitarist. During that time, they played the most important theaters in the country, ranging from 500 to 1000 in attendance, quite an accomplishment for a band in a very small country. They have opened for Angra and Avantasia and played the acclaimed Baja Prog Fest back in 2007.
They have also won the ACAM award two times for prog record of the year and Juan Pablo won the best audio engineer in 2018. They have had great national and international reviews of their work, during the years, including being on the cover of Costa Rica’s most important newspaper twice.
In 2015, due to burning out, they decided to go on hiatus for a short time and returned in 2019 to start a new chapter in the band, this time changing vocalist from male to female. Former vocalist Francisco Longhi was replaced by newcomer Priscilla Ruiz, who brings more versatility and vocal tools to the mix.
They are working very hard on a fourth album which they hope to release in the second half of 2020 and are already setting up live dates for the whole of next year.
