Sounds of Era

Sounds of Era

BandAlternativeRock

Alternative Rock? Punk? Metal? POP?! We (and everyone else) have a difficult time categorizing our music into one genre. Guitar, bass, drums and vocals played by human beings. Sounds of Era; not one sound, not one era, but music that carries movements from the past, present and for the future.

Biography

Summer of 2010
Rudy Be Lopez: Hey Erwin...wanna help me record? I'm looking to start a band but I'm having difficulty finding a drummer and bassist. Just fill in for me on drums and I'll do the vocals, guitar and bass. Hopefully, I can find bandmates once I put my music online

Erwin Orellana: Yea man, I'll help you out

Rudy: Interested in becoming my drummer?

Erwin: Nah man, I just have too much stuff on my plate but I'll help you out...I'm not even a real drummer

Rudy: I'm not a real guitarist, you know bass is my thing, and I'm not even sure how to sing

Erwin: Haha ok well it sounds like you know what you are doing...let's put some ideas down and go from there

Sounds of Era (SOE) began in that initial conversation. They weren't sure where they were going but sometimes that's the best plan; natural talent and instincts flourish in the beautiful struggle. Born and raised in the City of Angels, two lost Latino kids found truth in the instruments they were playing and decided to find, build, create, DO SOMETHING! with that truth, finally coming together with close friend Jairo Abrego on second guitar. They are no gimmicks, they are no color, they are what you see and hear, a quality that seems to be lost in the business of it all; with their latin rhythms, out of this world guitar and unbound energy, Sounds of Era is looking to bring integrity back to mainstream music.

Lyrics

Extinct

Written By: Rudy Be Lopez

Red, red is the sky cant you see the burn today?
That’s right apathy

No, don’t go outside where the freaks come and play
Suggest you stay inside

No, there’s something wrong with me whats wrong with you?
Creativity?

The time has come (So hit the floor, you want some more)
Will we? (So hit the floor)
The time has come (So hit the floor, you want some more)
Will we? (So hit the floor...now)
Extinct

Oh, you see the lights flash before your screen
You see technology

Oh, the very thing you trust is the death of free
HAL will you ever know?

Man, dare speak your name dare speak your mother’s grave
Tell her a virtual lie

The time has come (So hit the floor, you want some more)
Will we? (So hit the floor)
The time has come (So hit the floor, you want some more)
Will we? (So hit the floor…now)
Extinct

Come on let’s go x6
Now!

Here to Stay

Written By: Rudy Be Lopez

Come and Join the Nite
They will Never Know
Who are they to judge?
What do they know?

Through the eyes of spite
Till our kingdom comes
Who are they to judge?
You hear!
We say!

Come and Join the Nite
They will Never Know
Who are they to judge?
What do they know?

There's something about us they cannot describe it
So Speak with your mind and you'll find
What no one can see

Pray to None
You've had your fun
(Im alive and well and see)

We wont go home we never had one
We're Here to Stay
We're Here to Stay
We wont give in we never fit in
We're Here to Stay
We're Here to Stay

Solo (They will never, never know oooh oooh)

We wont go home we never had one
We're Here to Stay
We're Here to Stay
We wont give in we never fit in
We're Here to Stay
We're Here to Stay

Till the bitter end x6

Through Space and Time

Written By: Rudy Be Lopez

Through Space and Time
Through Space and Time
We fell apart

We gave it all
We gave it all
and for what?
Untie me let me be free
It's the best for you and me

This can't be how the story goes
Everybody, nobody knows just stop
Where do we go from here? x2

Through Space and Time
These vows lose rhyme
We fell for art

I Love you
I Love you all but we are F***ed
Untie me let me be free
It's the best for you and me

This can't be how the story goes
Everybody, nobody knows just stop
Where do we go from here? x2

Man with No Name

Written By: Rudy Be Lopez

Ohh oh oh
I'm just a Man with No Name
I'm tryin to find some sane
In a world so cold
Ohh oh oh
Oh help me find my way
I'm just a man with no name
And I'm searchin for same sane

You don't know me, I am
Searching for some peace, harmony yea yea
Help me find my way
I'm alone, I'm alone

I'm just a Man with No Name
I'm tryin to find some sane
In a world so cold

How I wish I was a man with no fear, no year, no peer
to judge me for my race, my place, my face
but looking to embrace the man
I am

Ohh oh oh
I'm just a Man with No Name
I'm tryin to find some sane
In a world so cold
Ohh oh oh
Oh help me find my way
I'm just a man with no name
And I'm searchin for same sane

Who will lead?
Who will succeed?
I can't find no one
Who will lead us?
I can't find no one
I'm alone

(Solo, chorus, outro)
