Biography

Entropia was founded on October 2005 by Leonel Rojas (Drums), Juan Carlos Sanchez (Bass Gtr) and Nicolas Aparicio (Guitars); we knew each other studying Music in Universidad Javeriana in Bogota - Colombia but the project started when Nicolas and Leonel changed to Universidad El Bosque wich will be the 2nd home to Entropia, being followed by Juan Carlos and Juan Manuel in 2008.

The three of us made all the music and arreangements then in came in Jorge Arango (keyboards) in 2006 and lately that year Juan Manuel Güiza (Vocals). In June 2006 Entropia enters the STUDIO at STUDI-ON (Bogota) to record the First Demo Entitled "...of human introspection" under the supervision of Sebastian Romero to start moving around and get some fan base.

Between 2006 y 2007 Entropia played in different Bars, Schools, festivals But it was until 2008 that the bands name start being recognized because of the 1st visit of IRON MAIDEN to Colombia, the band enter to the contest to be the Opening Act for them compiting with other 7 bands, being Entropia the youngest Band on the contest ENDED being one of the favorites leaving us on 2nd place by Half a point from the winner.

Even we didnt win the contest we had the opprtunity to record a song in a Tribute Album for IRON MAIDEN named "THE GOLDEN BEAST". After this event Entropia's "Fame" grew a lot more and in the same year (2008) we were chosen to play at the biggest and more important Free - Festival in Latin America, FESTIVAL ROCK AL PARQUE, in that presentation we presented the music you can hear on our LP "SIMETRIA" that was launched at 2010.

We began Simetria's recording sessions at AUDIO FACTORY under the supervision of Diego Moreno (Sound Engineer/Mix) and David Cely (Mix) in December 2007 but the album had a lot of problems we had to let go Jorge Arango for personal matters so that made a delay on the release and we had to record again all the Keyboards.

After Arango left the band we search for the perfect Keyboard player that fits the most to the band style and we found it in Gabriel Chaparro, our actual keyboard player.
Gabriel entered the band and immediately started the recording that appears on the Album.

After all the struggle to have the release of the Album we had to deal with another breakout from another member of the band, Juan Manuel (Vocals) was making his way out the band so he can be 100% on his Solo career and his departure caught us by surprise.

The band is still searching for the right Vocalist but fortunately we've made a good reputation and a lot of people wants to work with us and the help is out there.
After we made SIMETRIA's release via Media fire by giving it away for free we have been reached by a lot of magazines and people that has made us Reviews of the album.

Countries like ITALY, GERMANY, AUSTRALIA, U.S, FINLAND, BRAZIL, ARGENTINA and many more listened the album and they have been giving us their support 100%.

In 2012 Entropia released the Ep "EVOLVE" that contains 5 new songs with two Video Clips, giving the audience an fan base of the band something NEW and AWESOME, one of the band finest creation and music 

In 2014 they released their letest work "TRANSFORM", for some people is considered the 2nd part of Evolve. This Ep has 6 tracks and helped the band to approach different Genres and fans around the globe.

2015 was a important year, they celebrate their first decade in the Biggest Free Festival in Latin America ROCK AL PARQUE. That same year, Nicolas Aparicio, the original guitar player of ENTROPIA left the band to reach new opportunities of job and better life in Australia.

In 2016 the band starts composing the songs with William Castro, that enters the band, filling the space of Nicolas Aparicio as Lead Guitar and to commemorate this new LineUp, ENTROPIA has planned a small tour in Bogotà, to show and present their new member and new songs.


Lyrics

THOUGHTS CONFINED

Written By: Nicolas Aparicio,Juan carlos Sanchez,Gabriel Chaparro,Leonel Rojas, Leonel Rojas

THOUGHTS CONFINED

Verso 1
Pretending not to understand
a fear of the unknown
Blind Belief, just compromise
Wrong way to an end

Puente
Questionize, Don’t walk through life blind

Puente 2 y 4
Ask yourself, do you believe in lies? (Ask yourself)

Verso 2
Imagining what your thoughts are
Can’t find a hint of guess

Coro
Thoughts confined, cursed with damnation (open your mind)
Silent Eyes, cry loud “Piece of Mind”
Thoughts Confined, blessed with the question (freedom denied)
Compromise, no ethereal bonds

Verso 3
Last call from the real life inviting you to simpathize
never try to guess without questioning what’s there
Corte (en gutural)
Questionize now!

Verso 4
Take a vote to comprehend
You are your beliefs

Puente 3
Questionize, Don’t walk through life blind (questionize)

Coro Final
Questionize, Don’t walk through life blind
Ask yourself, do you believe in lies?

Gutural final: (Bajista)
Words I wrote to open minds
not to minionize
a healthy mind not darkenized
is always fair with life

Humanize and realize
that you are not alone
when question hits your mind with guess
Never believe the whole

BURDEN

Written By: Nicolas Aparicio,Juan carlos Sanchez,Gabriel Chaparro,Leonel Rojas, Leonel Rojas

VERSO 1
Shout, perception calls my name. (Cry)
Cry, dangers in flaw sight merely seen right through my shape

Pre Coro 1
(Fear me), look through my eyes and see my world that’s turning into ashes
(Raging), stare at my pride, hear my anger screaming fear me (fear me)

CORO 1
Timeless, standing, at the end where I reveal this burden
Endless, waiting, for a stolen notion of reality (Eh)

VERSO 2
Whisper, seeking to live illusions (Why)
Why do I fear? Telling myself that life is hidden in despair

Pre Coro 2
(Waking), define the root of my confusion struggling (Confusion struggling)with my nonsense
(Freedom), close to the edge and see I’ve never (Never) reached it, waking (waking)

CORO1

CORO 2
Cause I hate the nature of my sick emotions and I blame (blame them) the alliance of morality
leave me

STREAMS

Written By: Nicolas Aparicio,Juan carlos Sanchez,Gabriel Chaparro,Leonel Rojas, Leonel Rojas

STREAMS
VERSO 1
Desire, has hidden in time
Forgotten, lost the strength to fill your heart, Open your eyes (open your eyes)
What’s in your mind (what’s in your mind) Do not leave your
Will to deny (will to deny) all that makes you die

CORO
Lonely, (lonely) trapped inside, (trapped inside)
A stream of thoughts that brought you here
You can’t accept to be forced in

VERSO 2
Desire is becoming real
Tied to a strength to fill your heart again, Aware of lies (aware of lies)
Waves cannot be marauded
Drowning on concepts of your past

Gutural
Wasting time into this game, frightened, perplexed
Letting down your basic thoughts, refuse, compromise

CORO FINAL
Wake up in time, or you will dry in thinking senssesly
Trapped in a lie, you will wither (In time)
Wake up in time, or you will dry in thinking senssesly
Slave of the tide, time to realize

THIS TIME

Written By: Leonel Rojas,Juan Carlos Sanchez,Gabriel Chaparro,Nicolas Aparicio

THIS TIME (Coma)

VERSE 1: (Growls)
I’m caught between what’s real and dreams
There’s evil inside my mind
And everytime I try to scream, there’s no salvation
Through space and time

PRE CHORUS 1:
Am I lost now?

CHORUS 1:
The time has come, will you be there? (You’ll be there?)
I am trapped and lost inside my head (I have no one)
TIME OOOHH OOOHHH

VERSE 2: (Growls)
I SET THIS TIME TO BE!
I ‘m just too blind to see what’s ment to be undone
And make it right
I’m catatonic, I got no place to free my tension
I’m afraid that I can’t fight

PRE CHORUS 2: (Growls)
Hate to see my time went away

CHORUS 2
The time has come, will you be there? (You’ll be there)
I lost my life and gone insane (I have no one)

BRIDGE: (Growls)
Let me know when time is real
I just want to feel

CHORUS 3:
The time has come, will you be there? (You’ll be there)
In a coma, I’m stuck in there (I have no one)
TIME OOOHH OOOHHH

AWAY

Written By: Nicolas Aparicio,Juan Carlos Sanchez,Leonel Rojas,Gabriel Chaparro

AWAY

Verse 1
Someday you’ll find
The reason I
Wanted to embrace it all

Darkness flows through my veins
When all I feel is shame
This is my reason why I

CHORUS
Lost my life, lost my will to dream
Lost my plan, I Found a way for being different
Lost my life, lost my will to dream
I now can say, I’m willing to be drifted away

Verse 2
I now will stand, please understand
(You) must let me to let it go
It’s just your fear of pain, that kept me here insane
This is my reason why I

DECIDE

Written By: Gabriel Chaparro,Leonel Rojas,Juan Carlos Sanchez,Nicolas Aparicio

DECIDE

Verse 1
Got a feeling inside, you know, you must let it go
Let reason decide for all that we’ll never know
Throw it away (to see), controlled by your faith (to be), deceived as a slave
You are just stumbling down, on what’s fake, hollow promises (hollow promises)

Pre Chorus (Growls)

Lies, they taught you, the dead are alive,
keep being a slave
That book was, just a clever disguise
To judge your way

CHORUS
Fight and never surrender, to words of faith,
that’s just a bait, decide.

Verse 2
You can let them decide or you can just let it go
Or just keep loosing your mind, in a scam that’s been always gold
Throw it away (to see), controlled by your faith (to be), deceived as a slave
You are just wasting your time, they control, what you’ll never know

Pre Chorus (Growls)

Lies, they taught you, the dead are alive,
keep being a slave
That book was, just a clever disguise
To judge and proclaim

FINAL CHORUS

Fight and never surrender, to words of faith,
that’s just a bait, decide.
Fight and never surrender, look back in time,
Organized crime, decide

TRANSFORM

Written By: Juan Carlos Sanchez,Nicolas Aparicio,Gabriel Chaparro,Leonel Rojas

TRANSFORM

You are in our way

Verse 1

A different state of mind
Forced us to come forth
You’re overwhelmed, not thinking clear
We are the covenant
Sacred as pain and lies
Arrival of your tears

Growls
You’ve summoned the ones
No prayer will save you

Feeling us go down the path to your consciousness
Unleash your senses
It’s sane to fear us
You are condemned to HELL

Verse 2

Travel the path of hate
You’re weak and insecure
A state that gives us strength and force
A feast for our own kind
A simple human mind
Exposed to blood, severely austere

Growls
Feeling us go down the path to your consciousness
Unleash your senses
It’s sane to fear us
You are condemned to HELL

Growls
Transformed by darkness
Prepare for a new life
For you’re the missing link
As written in the books
You’re the Forsaken One!
Sane! Unclouded thinking
Your darkness has turned to light

You are the Forsaken One!

MONSTER

Written By: Leonel Rojas,Juan Carlos Sanchez,Nicolas Aparicio,Gabriel Chaparro

Monster

It’s taken my heart, it’s taken our soul x2

Verse 1
Our being’s brought in a certain way
Put in a perennial sphere (for us)
The definition of unfairness
Well, primal fate

Pre Chorus 1
We’ve fallen again
Our lifespan is not enough for transmutations

Chorus
It´s taken my heart, it’s taken my soul
We’ve got to feel desire
Its taking it all, playing its role

It´s taken my heart, it’s taken my soul
We’ve got to feel desire
It’s taking it all, playing its role

Verse 2
The systematic flow of life
A growth that’s lacking appeal (austere)
Hoards of mammals with no sense
Only judge and mate

Pre Chorus 2
We’ve fallen again
Our lifespan is not enough for transmutations

Growls
It takes all of that’s left of desire, and sheds it away

Chorus 2
It´s taken my heart, it’s taken my soul
We’ve got to feel desire
Its taking it all, playing its role

It´s bruising it all, It’s leaving it sore
This is enraging for our
Spirit alone, we’re in for the fall

Bridge
It´s taken my heart, it’s taken my soul, we’ve got to feel desire
Doomed for life!

Growls
Injustice takes forth the despair for the race
Injustice makes us repay a cicle of life

Growls Ending
It takes all that’s left of you and makes it repay
For all the time that’s spent on earth breathing away
Your own fate

SCENT

Written By: Nicolas Aparicio,Leonel Rojas,Juan Carlos Sanchez,Gabriel Chaparro

SCENT

Verse 1
Why don’t you look a little bit closer,
to find who you are when fear takes your shoulder
Why don’t you look a little bit further,
stop searching inside a masquerade.

CHORUS
You can’t hide, you know there’s something real, (Something real)
back in time when childhood let us feel (let us feel)
Wondering through your mind a scent is lonely (a scent is lonely)
Afraid to go outside a smell forgotten (a smell forgotten)

Verse 2
Expecting to find a place to be chosen (a place to be chosen)
To find that you are fitting in nowhere
Just realize your heart won’t grow older
Start searching inside your memories

CHORUS
POST CHORUS 1
Let your real eyes, glow in another soul
POST CHORUS 2
Leave your fear mask, let your life shine , become what you once enjoy
