The Independent Music Awards (IMA) program in USA selected the new Eldorado album as one of the five best hard rock albums of the year 2009. The recognition to the band now comes from Australia, from the MusicOZ awards. These awards are mainly centered in Australian bands, where the bands compete in different categories: rock, pop, jazz etc. Nevertheless, the Musicoz awards have a category for international bands and Eldorado song “The House of the 7 Smokestacks” is finalist as best international song.
Jesús: ”this is one of the first songs we composed for our new album. When we played it in our gigs the people connected incredibly with the song and we decided that “The House of the 7 Smokestacks” would be the first single of our new album. And we were right!
To receive this recognition from these different and reputed sources is very motivating as an artist, it pushes us to continue with enthusiasm and energy”
