Rapidly rising new classic hard rock band Eldorado’s ‘Antigravity Sound Machine’ album, released on November 5th, is a simply stunning, groove laden, musical delight. ‘Antigravity Sound Machine’, was recorded at DNA studios in Toronto with producer Richard Chycki (Aerosmith, Dream Theater, Gotthard, Rush).
Eldorado is touring intensively presenting their new album. The presentation tour in Spain, 38 dates along all the territory is "Recommended Tour" by Radio3, the National Public Radio in Spain. The presentation tour in Europe was in March and April 2013 and in September 2013, 24 dates in the Uk, France, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium and The Netherlands.
"Antigravity Sound Machine" won the Best Hard Rock / Metal Album 2012 award in the Spanish Independent Music Awards, the most acclaimed music awards in Spain.
Eldorado, a totally organic, talent oozing, fiery four piece outfit who formed in Madrid in 2007, comprise Jesus Trujillo on vocals, keyboard and acoustic guitar, Andres Duende on guitar, Cesar Sanchez on bass and Christian Giardino on drums. Inspired by a mutual love of the raw sound and energy of such 70’s classic rock legends as Bad Company, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin, Eldorado began writing their own, glorious, catchy compositions, all topped with outstanding singer Jesus’ killer, gravel tinged, expressive vocals.
An intensely ambitious group, Eldorado sent their demos out to select major name producers around the world and immediately won over Richard Chycki, who admired the raw, authentic energy of the band. Realizing their potential, he agreed to work with them on their debut, (Spanish language only) album, ‘En Busca De Eldorado’, released in May 2008. Encouraged by rave reviews and sizeable sales - in Spain alone, a country in a massive depression and plagued by musical piracy – Chycki then agreed to produce Eldorado’s second album, ‘Golden’, and this time singing in English.
‘Golden’ made even bigger 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. Eldorado’s 2010 single, ‘The House Of The 7 Smokestacks’, was a finalist in the Australian MusicOz Awards, while another song, ‘Atlantico’ was a finalist in the International Songwriting Composition (ISC) Rock Composition category. Eldorado were also invited to play at the Canadian Music Week Festival, where they went down a veritable storm.
Once they had written the bare bones of what was to become ‘Antigravity Sound Machine’, Eldorado had to wait six months while Chycki worked on Rush’s 2011 live DVD and then their ‘Clockwork Angels’ studio album. This gave them plenty of time to launch a crowd funded scheme, which soon exceeded its initial target of 3000 Euros, eventually raising well over 9000 Euros, a massive amount for Spain. After touring with the likes of Alter Bridge and Thin Lizzy around the country, many thousands of fans who were converted by the band’s explosive live performances contributed funds, proudly demonstrating their belief in, and support of, Eldorado.
Having honed the new songs down extensively playing them live, the band couldn’t wait to get in to the studio with Richard in March 2012 to record ‘Antigravity Sound Machine’, a sublime, consummate collection of timeless hard rock songs.
