‘La Gravedad’, the new album by Last Drop can be found on Bandcamp.
by Walter Price
Spanish rockers with a social-conscious, Last Drop, are back in the saddle again with their recently released, ‘La Gravedad’ (The Gravity). A straight-up bluesy-grunge riff heavy rock n’ roll album that expands the thrusts of their self-titled 2014 EP. An EP and its four tracks that are fully re-represented on this new album.
‘La Gravedad’ delves into love, chaos, self-awareness, and the world engulfing us. Amongst a whole host of poignant landscapes all wrapped in well honed and blazingly produced classic rock soundtracks. Whether you speak Spanish or not you’ll find the heavy passion true to your soul. To translate the album, the band’s Edin Malamadre stopped by to go full track by track.
1 – HORMIGAS (ANTS)
“We are not ants/becoming suicidal”. Don’t let the world crash you. Don’t dig your own grave. Don’t be afraid about the future. There’s no future, no present, no past.
2 – 11
A rebel with a cause. Revolution nº 9. “And violence is a solution for the one who seeks but never finds redemption”. They want to control us through chaos.
3 – SED (THIRST)
“Thirst I said to the world, but they claim deserts as the final act”. A prophet in the desert, screaming to the sky. Only when you are on your own, you can speak to the devils and angels on the inside. And then you realize that they are one and the same.
4 – HACIA LA PERDICIÓN (TOWARDS PERDITION)
“My body is a suicidal temple, where I glorify my perdition”. I swim in rivers of wine. I raise with the smoke and dance with the devils. I am what I give.
5 – DESPIERTA (AWAKE)
Open your eyes cause you are the asleep motherfucker. We are controlled by the hypnotic.
6 – SAVIA (SAP)
“No, I don’t want to live like this as if there was a tomorrow. My religion is to be here, whatever the cause. From the same mud, the made Adan, they mold your hours and in the morning of truth, your night appears”
7 – CORDURA (SANITY)
A love song. Only lovers will survive.
8 – NO HABRÁ PAZ (THERE WILL NOT BE PEACE)
“Like a plea without the home or a name” A mind without peace can be easily controlled. So, if there is no peace inside, there will not be peace in the outside.
9 – ENSAYO Y ERROR (TRIAL AND ERROR)
We are rats in the lab. We waste our Eros in the hands or Thanatos. We fight useless wars. We obey useless rules. We worship useless gods. We are fucked.
10 – LA GRAVEDAD (THE GRAVITY)
“I am not who I think I am”. To rise, first, you have to crawl. Reality only can be explained through the dream. As above, so below. Gravity as the energy that keeps us together, with our feet on the ground. We have to live this finite experience on Earth. Look inside. You have the whole Universe inside.The effort is called LA GRAVEDAD(THE GRAVITY), is about being down-to-earth, with your feet on the ground. Your foot on the ground but your heart in the stars. “Is everybody in? The ceremony is about to begin”
