Spanish rockers Eldorado was formed in the beginning of 2007 and released their first album "En Busca de Eldorado" in May of 2008. The album got overall good reviews and so did their second album "Golden" and was named "Best Vox Populi Hard Rock / Metal Album" of 2009 by the USA Independent Music Awards. Their new album "Antigravity Sound Machine" was recorded in Toronto in march 2012 and was produced by Richard Chycki (Rush, Gotthard, Aerosmith).When I started to listen to this album I must admit that I was totally blown away and I really love when a new, to me, unknown group totally grabs my attention!
I think that Eldorado are one of the best new modern hard rock bands out there today and this is, in my opinion, a really awesome album ! Although Eldorado is heavily influenced by bands like Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Whitesnake, Free, Wolfmother and Audioslave they still manage to construct their own modern sound and style. Singer Jesus Trujillo is an excellent, engaging, passionate and melodic lead singer and has a great voice that fits perfectly with this kind of classic rock and the rest of the band are all fine musicians and all work very good as a team and makes this album powerful and easy listening to. All the songs are well produced and I must say that every song, in its own way, fits perfectly on this album and it all feels very solid and overall this album holds a very high quality .
Songs I personally liked a bit more (because the whole album is amazing !) and that I think you should listen to are the cool "Mr Saturn", the great "Like A Lost Child" with its cool Hammond organ, my personal favourite " Another Bright Sunday" with its great heavy riffs and breakdown, the melodic "Lady Of The Mountain", the beautiful "Blue Jay Wings" and of course you also should check out the cool video to the great rock song "Background Radiation".
This is an album I highly recommend if you are in to old school hardrock and like bands from the 70s such as Zeppelin, Purple, Rainbow and then mix that with some Audioslave and Wolfmother.
This is a really magnificent album, this is excellent classic Rock with one foot in the future ! I`m impressed !
When "Stairway To Heaven" is played backwards, you can hear the phrase "oh here´s to my sweet satan..the one who´s little path would make me sad, whose power is satan..he´ll give you give you 666 there was a little toolshed where he would make us suffer, sad in the part of "if there´s a bustle..."
