They became the first Puerto Rican band to be signed by a multinational label (Polygram) with whom they released their first eponymous album in 1996. Sol D'Menta was formed in 1994 by Erick Seda (bass), Miguel Rodríguez (guitar), Ernesto Rodríguez (drums), and Ricky Díaz (vocals), all from the city of Mayagüez, Puerto Rico. After some time playing in the local scene, the band was signed by Polygram becoming the first Puerto Rican rock band to be signed by a multinational label. Under Polygram, the band released their self-titled debut album achieving great success with singles like "Inconformes" and "La Cachetera".
Although the lyrics of the album were mostly light and party-oriented, some of them had social messages about the situation in the island. One example is the song "Skalamientos", which chronicles the continuous rise in crime in Puerto Rico. Other songs addressed subjects like materialism, alcoholism, and homelessness.
