ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"And on the Eighth Day civilization appeared"; this is the idea that lurks behind the band's authentic and original name. The music of 'El Octavo Dia' makes its way through noisy life as a means to captivate the sentimental gut of the individual.


Sheer originality and and impeccable taste invade the space when, for example, a song like "Nomada," with its seemingly classical 'Grunge' vibe, is able to irradiate a sense of novelty. Poetry leaves behind the hackneyed conventions of past generations and sends to oblivion the bands that we listen to today. Daniel Gonzalez's voice wallows our least and most wanted memories, making the experience ours and solely ours. At times it may be heartrending as in "Montura Revolver" or sublime as in "Nocion."


The interesting aspect of this group is the idea behind all its musical scenario. This is where their thoughts converge, concur, and differ; where slowly but surely their style is evolving in order to conquer our surroundings with the rebellious sound that will distort any ideal. A rebellion that conveys sensual notes that take by the hand life itself, immersed in an emotional and renewing context.


What awaits to be seen is only the beginning; a dawn that promises great light, and for those who listen carefully... nothing will remain the same.

El Octavo Dia Rocks!

It's a wonderful mix of hard core and trendy!
this CD is great, everyone should buy it! If you want to buy a copy of next year's Grammy awards don't wait for this!!!

Tamara Turner, CD Baby


Exasperated to the point of inspiration by the mainstream trends of Puerto Rican rock, 'El Octavo Dia' is wiping clean the slate of what is typically thought of as "rock en espanol," especially for our catalog. Diving deep into classical grunge, milking it for all it's worth and then scraping the bottom with a sharp industrial knife, their music still falls between genres, bringing to mind acts like Smashing Pumpkins, early U2 and Nine Inch Nails. Even while their sound has a tense quality of desperation, passion and urgency, it isn't without substance and subtlety. It's not the sort of frenzied, loud, guitar-bashing rock that seems to be coming out of the woodwork these days. This group grounds all that electricity with the magnetism of thoughtfulness and intent in their writing. These aren't songs built from surface level emotions, the disposable "blip on the radar" type. These are songs rooted strongly in sincere convictions and with a real purpose of rocking the boat of expectations.

A great introduction to this band and they remind me somewhat of 'Staind - Break the Cycle'. Leaves me thirsty for the full album. Nomada and Nocion are just superb!

The band simply sound awesome. They manage to blend their emotions with exhilarating lyrics that are key in excellent music. That's what El Octavo dia has achieved in this production. It is truly new blood, an infusion of passionate talented musicians taking Rock Music to a higher perspective. Get your now.

It's about Time, Damn they Rock!!!
This Cd represent a new generation of people, a new generation of true music, the music is not only noise, but true feelings thought out perfectly until the last note. The lyrics are phenomenal. They sound refreshing. It is like taking a trip down to the 80's memory lane, but with a new spark. I strongly urge anyone to buy this cd and you will know what I'm talking about. I love it...
