Mostro

Mostro

BandEDMComedy

Trance-World rhythms with Electronic backbeats mixed with authentic tribal rock & roll. Mostro breaks boundaries by combining style's from both North & South America & adding a texture of Arab scales and Didgeridoo to throw a curveball that tops the audacity of any modern band.

Biography

Mostro was created in hopes to join the two opposing forces of creation and death and create beautiful textures that can heal the world from conflicting ideals. Created in 2007 when Hernan Battiato & Justin Ancheta met on the streets of San Francisco, later adding Tree on Bass and Peter French on drums, they have created a buzz in San Francisco & the world while performing raw on the streets of San Francisco. Traveler's have been begging for them to come to Europe, Asia, South America, & the United States. With such feedback, the band has started reaching outside of San Francisco and plan to take the act on the road to help with the evolution and constant progression of life and existence as we meld new and old techniques on living into one dream.

Lyrics

Fool of Water

Written By: Justin Ancheta & Hernan Battiato

Armado
con lo único que me queda el corazón emparchado.
Saltando baches.
Revolviendo, en el cajon de los recuerdos
comprendo;
que ya es hora de pedirle al viento, que me deje
de marear y me guie
Mas allá de los papeles que me piden al pasar.

Chorus:
Fool of water that runs dry
Full of water that runs dry

Sangro, en diferentes lenguas maternas,
me retuerzo, alcanzo y saboreo lo que quiero.
Rastreo por praderas y senderos, con mochila mortero y
mi tubo de repuesto,
un lugar para recargar y seguir.

Chorus:
Fool of water that runs dry
Full of water that runs dry

Hymn naminamamam he's leading the sheep
to the steepest hill where he'll cut them to eat
Feeling delicious but why that malicious
where he drops down to his knees because he can't feel a thing

Arreglo y reviso mis heridas que marcaron camino.
Siempre tomo a los toros por sus astas, mas hey!, no
les quiero matar pero si estocar, a pesar que rejoneo,
nunca, nunca me regodeo.

Want to beef up all the bullshit that is fed into our heads
Like get in line with the structure that keeps time in check
But feeling better and better about the sedatives
While our emotions are getting weaker by the feel of it

Mandinga! ahí te veo venir agazapado con tus sucias
garras.
Pero mis boleadoras como bullroaras te las van a enroscar.

(Chorus)… end

Food For Your Soul

Written By: Justin Ancheta

FOOD FOR THE SOUL

I'M RUNNING FASTER THAN I THINK I SHOULD HAVE GONE
FEELING LIKE I'VE LOST MY WAY AND CANNOT MAKE IT HOME
BUT I MET A LADY WHO TOLD ME A WAY ON HOW TO GO - SHE SAID - LET ME BE

FOOD FOR YOUR SOUL
IT'S FOOD FOR YOUR SOUL

THERE'S A MAN IN THE BACK WITH A CAN OF PAINT AND HE CAN'T PUT IT DOWN CAUSE HE TRIES TO RELATE GRAFFITI OF THE SOUL THAT HAVE PAST AND SAVED TIME CAN'T TELL THEM TO GO AWAY
PUSHING FORWARD THEY MULTIPLY HOPING FOR ONE DAY THE WORLD TO DIE
IT'S NOT ALL THAT'S SAID BUT IT'S ON THE MIND A BIG CONVERSION OF LOVE NOT LIES
BUT SOMETIMES IN TRYING THE PEOPLE THEY DIE
A WAR OF RELIGION THAT'S ON MY MIND
ITS FOOD FOR YOUR SOUL AND NOT YOUR EYES
THE WORDS BECOME CLEAR WHEN I CLOSE MINE

Because it is FOOD FOR YOUR SOUL
LET IT BE FOOD FOR YOUR SOUL

GOD SPEAKS TRUTH IN THE MINDS OF THE MANY BUT IF HE SPEAKS TO YOU DON'T FORCE IT ON THE PETTY
JESUS HAS DIED AND RISEN AGAIN FOR ALL OF THEM THAT SEEK HIM
BUT DON'T FRET PEOPLE YOUR WAYS NOT LOST HEAVEN ABOVE THERE IS NO COST
PRACTICE FAITH IN KINDNESS AND LOVE AND REDEMPTION IS SURE TO COME

Because it is FOOD FOR YOUR SOUL
LET IT BE FOOD FOR YOUR SOUL

JESUS MIGHT HAS CAME AND COME AGAIN
BUT WE MISSED THE SAME MESSAGE IN THE SON WHEN HE SAID
DON'T JUDGE YOUR BROTHER BUT LOOK TO YOURSELF
WHO OUT OF YOU CAN TAKE THE STONE OFF THE SHELF

Because it is FOOD FOR YOUR SOUL
LET IT BE FOOD FOR YOUR SOUL

EACH HUMAN ALIVE CAN PRACTICE THEIR FAITH NO MATTER WHAT CREED GENDER RELIGION COLOR OR RACE
I JUST TRUST IN THE JUDGEMENT ON TRUE JUDGEMENT DAY THAT ACTION PLAYS MORE IMPORTANT THAN PREACHING THE WAY

Because it is FOOD FOR YOUR SOUL
LET IT BE FOOD FOR YOUR SOUL
