Bassist Ricardo Iorio formed, one year later, Almafuerte, with guitarist Claudio "El Tano" Marcielo and drummer Claudio Cardacci.In 1995 they released their first studio album, Mundo Guanaco, which included songs of both Hermética and of V8(another of Ricardo Iorio's previous bands), and some new ones written by Iorio (most of them dealing with social issues).
After the release of their second album, Del Entorno, Cardacci was replaced by Rodolfo Márquez. One year later, Márquez was replaced by Walter Martínez, after a demonstration with his band Vorax. With Martínez they released their first live album En Vida.
In 1998 they released a self-titled album Almafuerte and Profeta en su Tierra, and in 1999 their fifth studio album, A Fondo Blanco.In 2001, drummer Martínez was replaced by Bin Valencia. In April they released another album, Piedra Libre, with 10 new songs.
