BandRockClassic Rock

Straightforward music that's catchy and immediately accessible. Clearly influenced by the archetypal rock classics, but with a modern sound. At times ironic, lyrically Eldorado is also capable of utilizing mystic imagery in a fresh way. Their songs are primarily visual and at times cinematographic.

Biography

Eldorado is an experienced rock band that has been forged by the scenarios of different countries in its constant tours. The strength of the bands of 60/70, the connection to emotions all mixed with a current sound can be felt in their shows and albums.  The instrumentation, psychedelia, rock, letters, improvisation and quality of expression, perfectly describe this band, that fills with  emotion all its music.

Of all the albums released by Eldorado, Babylonia Haze (English) / Karma Generator (Spanish) is probably the most influenced by the months on the road. The live evolution of the band has been the germ of the ten songs that constitute the album, arisen from improvisations and developments with psychedelic vocation, vague ideas that end up being rotund and the unconscious quest of new landscapes.  All of it with the stage as a permanent witness.

It is also an album of a darker tendency, introspective and unsympathetic, both with oneself and with the others, it deals with our own capacity to destroy and rebuild in a modern Babylon dominated by lower instincts, of the responsibility for our own destiny through our actions, all closely linked to the oriental belief of Karma. Action-Reaction.

Recorded in Madrid Musigrama Studios under the guidance of Richard Chycki between August and September 2014, mixed and mastered in the Canadian Street of Dreams studios of Richard Chycki, Eldorado introduces their new album.  Ten sharp and haunting songs that represent a step forward from what has been offered so far, new sounds for a character in constant transformation.  The Karma Generator sounds loud, through the haze of Babylonia.

Eldorado launched in June 2014 a crowdfunding campaign with the objective of recording a new album.  290 fans from 10 countries have contributed with 13.500€.

The new album, edited in two versions, the Spanish one "Karma Generator" and the English one "Babylonia Haze" has been launched in February, the 20th of 2015.

Eldorado’s ‘Antigravity Sound Machine previous album, released on November 5th, 2012, was recorded at DNA studios in Toronto with producer Richard Chycki (Aerosmith, Dream Theater, Gotthard, Rush). "Antigravity Sound Machine" won the Best Hard Rock / Metal Album 2012 award in the Spanish Independent Music Awards, the most acclaimed independent music awards in Spain.

Eldorado did 116 concerts, 53 in Spain, 14 in the Uk, 10 in Germany, 12 in France, Switzerland, Belgium and The Netherlands, 13 in the USA and 2 in Canada in the CMW. 

Golden’, Eldorado second album made big waves on the hard rock scene in Spain and set off major ripples in Australia, Canada and the USA, where ‘Golden’ was voted Best Hard Rock / Metal Album Of 2010 (by the public) at the USA Independent Music Awards. Witness to Eldorado’s burgeoning profile and fan base in America is their completed 14 date (including 2 festivals) 2012 US summer tour.

Lyrics

The house of the 7 smokestacks

Written By: Eldorado

Hey ! Astral light shining bright, you’re a hazy woman
Well, I got your spell, I got your scent. Time to take over
When rumors are like moans in the night of secret lovers
Hey ! someone says you would remain undercover

A circle of candles burn so bright
Now you’re in the house of the 7 smokestacks

Let’s get undressed, our voodoo dance - it will entwine us
Let me in tonight we’ll take our plans a little further

The skies above are blacker than black
Now you’re in the house of the 7 smokestacks
A circle of candles burn so bright
We’re dancing in the house of the 7 smokestacks

The strange mist drifts around
The cold fog hugs the ground

Hey ! Astral light shining bright, you’re a hazy woman
Well, I got your spell, I got your scent. Time to take over
When rumors are like moans in the night of secret lovers
Hey ! someone says you would remain undercover

The skies above are blacker than black
Now you’re in the house of the 7 smokestacks
A circle of candles burn so fast
We’re dancing in the house of the 7 smokestacks
The 7 smokestacks
Let me see you dancing at the house of the 7 smokestacks

Atlantico

Written By: Eldorado

Morning burst into the grey of a violent empty space,
The sound is good. It makes me want to scream,
Oh, the sound is good. Now that I can see,

A sunken city still there
Waiting for a silent stream
Are we living like an unknown breed?
Something will take us all out of here

Atlantico
Atlantico

I was warned in a dream. A misty message from the deep
But before noon I threw it into the sea
But before noon I was so scared to follow

A sunken city still there
Waiting for a silent stream
Are we living like an unknown breed?
Something will take us all out of here

Atlantico
Atlantico

Thoughts like balloons float in an asylum white room.
Don’t you think that’s weird?
Forever tied to a madman’s mind, balloons…
Thoughts are floating in an asylum morning

From the winter tides of steel, up to the highest sky´s beliefs
A lot of songs went too far but no one knows who we are
Morning burst into the grey of a violent empty space

Atlantico
Atlantico

Falling, Falling

Written By: Eldorado

Now I have a place where I will try to hide myself from everything… Indeed
Where no one can get out nor suspect that something else may come in

I´m falling, falling
I´ve lost control
I´m falling, falling
It's not me anymore

Like a shadow of a man I saw myself reflected in your glass.
I felt so bad
You told me:

It’s yourself, don’t you tell me you’re not scared
It’s yourself. I´m falling, falling
I lost control
I´m falling, falling
It’s not me anymore

Mirages of a shelter, I´ve locked myself inside
Mirages of a shelter, where I can’t help but hide
Mirages of a shelter, reflected and I cried
Mirages of a shelter, I´ve locked you all outside

Stay out! I´m safe inside
Stay out! You´re all outside
Stay out! I´m safe inside
Stay out!, Stay out!, Oh no, oh no, no

Now the spell has broken, oh no!
The final show
A blurry scene where the characters are spinning
In an endless role, I´m falling, falling
It’s not me anymore

Another Bright Sunday

Written By: Eldorado

Is there anybody seeing the same as me?
I'm slipping and sliding on a melody.
I can't believe there's a big full moon
when the sun doesn't let me look.
Is there anybody seeing the same as me?
The road is glowing as I walk down the fleeting streets.

All the clouds are laughing on my way
"Take a look it's another bright sunday"
All the clouds are telling me on the way
"Take it easy, baby"

The girl with the eye skin coat wants me to go
Once outside, she... she'll take me home.
I don't see her, I feel her
I know she loves all nighttime things
I can't believe it, she wants to whip me
I need to run and hide just for a while
But she explodes when I ask her for a kiss

All the clouds are laughing on my way
"Take a look it's another bright sunday"
All the clouds are telling me on my way
"Take it easy, baby"

Shiny cars are passing fast
They make a sound like if they're saying "easy" "easy"
I didn't know they have a soul
I just have to let them go so "easy" "easy"

The road is glowing as I walk down the fleeting streets.
They only keep glowing, this crazy sunday won't let me out.

Background Radiation

Written By: Eldorado

Hey, what's wrong in my head? What's wrong in just being?
Hey, what's wrong in your head? smoke hits the ceiling
Nothing will be for real till we admit the unreal
Nothing will be for real, come along and play your part.

No one here will notice living in their eggshell
No one here will notice, the feeling won't be wasted
People are on the street wearing faces of sheep
People are on the street, I came along to play my part.

Background radiation, revolution sensation
A symbol translation, soul mutation
Background radiation, revolution vibration
TV medication, I came along to play my part.

The truth is what's inside, lies are plants looking for light
And you know this world it's full of holes.
We all share the same closed eyes, we only see a line of light
In a universe of endless suns.

The same closed eyes, the same closed eyes, the same closed eyes

Hey, what's wrong in my head? What's wrong in just being?
Hey, what's wrong in your head? smoke hits the ceiling
Nothing will be for real till we admit the unreal
Nothing will be for real, come along and play your part.
Play your part, play your part.

Lady of the Mountain

Written By: Eldorado

She's like an old dream now, appeared when I was a child
Around the mountain I used to travel across
She spoke to me and I tried to run, she didn’t move her mouth
Floating up and down the ancient path.

"Our home, it's just waiting
Inside, you'll remember it
Oh, no. The weather's changing
Would you come with me?
Back home, where the children do what they want
Nothing like being safe and warm
I think it's raining, would you come with me... back home?
Back home, back home"

Never was a prudent child, not even a wise man
Had no problem to take her foggy hand
"Time it's over I still don't know, why you left me ages ago
now you're coming back home, oh my son"

"Our home, it's just waiting
Inside, you'll remember it
Oh, no. The weather's changing
Would you come with me?
Back home, where the children do what they want
Nothing like being safe and warm
I think it's raining, would you come with me... back home?
Back home, back home"

She's like an old dream now, appeared when I was a child
We walked together with the stars of Babylon.
Back home, back home.
Look the valley below.

Paranormal Circus

Written By: Eldorado

Living on the road, living like a ghost
Come to hear us shine, come to hear us shine,
From above and below , we have the strangest show,
You won't believe your eyes, you won’t believe your eyes…
Your eyes.

Nothing’s what it seems, it feels like a dream
A false scene, a smokescreen.
Free to come along, free to sing the song,
Welcome to the show, welcome to the show.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
It's a neverending road,
We stop to keep on moving (chorus - 1)
A strange mystic show
We know you have to live it.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Living on the road, living like a ghost,
Come to see us shine, come to see us shine
Get rid of everything, that you believed in
We’ll blow your mind, we’ll blow your mind
(chorus - 1)
Come on people, come on in
Now the show is about to begin.

Acrobat aliens will juggle your souls,
As you see the future through the show
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Far out love is what we’ve got here,
Far out love is what we hold here. (chorus 2)
----------------------------------------------------------------------
An atomic angel will shake a wand,
An english wizard took him from beyond,
They’re all different, but they’re all the same
The same old puppets in the same old game
(chorus 2)
Far out love, far out love, far out love

There’s another song we wanna play,
And it’ll takes your breath away,
Get ready, we’re gonna activate
An antigravity sound machine from
Another time, another place.
Like we did before with icarus,
We will teach you to fly high.
And when the sound starts filling in the place
That machine will take you up to outer space, outer space
Outer space, outer space, well !!
(chorus - 1)

Space Mambo

Written By: Eldorado

Moon like a mirror ball, night on the dance floor.
I saw a woman dances the old beat from the jungle,
I'm hypnotized when she flies, the rhythm is pounding wild,
I'm mesmerized when she rides the blinking cosmic lights.

Try to steal the vibe, and keep it sober.
Years are passing by, I think it’s obvious,
There’s no plan, she doesn’t mind what is happening outside,
That’s no lie, she doesn’t mind it’s over, over.
She goes her own way, floating through a space mambo,
She goes her own way, floating through a space mambo.

Try to breathe the sound and be contagious,
Spread the disease around, she’ll help you.
I’m hypnotized but I know why everybody feel alive,
I’m mesmerized, she’s like no other, other.
She goes her own way, floating through a space mambo,
She goes her own way, floating through a space mambo.
I'm hypnotized when she flies,
I'm mesmerized when she rides.

A Farewell to November

Written By: Eldorado

I remember a big smile
When everything was bright and shining
I wish to get it back, the years I left behind so carefree
The people I once met shadows with no names, no faces.
I see them come around, spirits trying to live forever.

I'm in a crowded room
I relive some memories to invoke them
My days won't back down
It's getting cold and late to fake it
The clouds are just the hands in a winter clock, their work is eternal.
Look up to travelling skies, they carry off the years like a feather.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Oh, November's gone, oh, the winter's long
What else do I need?
Oh, November's gone, oh, the winter's long (chorus)
What else do I need?
This is a farewell to November
------------------------------------------------------------------
The time found me when I was wandering in a middle of a question,
And then I realized in every lie, every lie
(chorus)

Searching for Light

Written By: Eldorado

Living is so easy inside all the walls built and I see it’s a beautiful cage.
I made my plans to win, but there's something missing
With all the cracks around we don't know why
We're always searching for light.

I want to have I don’t need ‘cause here I have to ego feed
As big as the pretty cage where
Living is so easy, living is so easy but now…
It gets so false that I don’t realize
I’m always searching for light.

I made my plans to win, you kill me from within
With all the cracks around we don't know why
As dark as the pretty cage where
Living is so easy, living is so easy
I found out that we’re together we’re inside wondering why
We’re always searching for light.
