On June 21st, 2011, the band Eikostate, released their first single in digital format, "The Betrayal", under the record label RGB Suports in advance of their album release. At the same time, the video of this song had its premiere on the net.
Their debut album, which is called "Tribute to Perseverance", was released on September 13th, 2011. It is an album full of great melodies, with the power of the best rock and it is mixed with a great number of traditional Japanese instruments, which give a personal touch and a very special atmosphere to it.
Self-produced and mixed by Drew Mazurek (Linkin Park, Mindset, HIM, Dog Fashion Disco, Sinch), and mastered by Alan Douches (Fleetwood Mac, Mastodon, Misfits, Everytime I Die, Hole, Sepultura), Eikostate, with its first album "Tribute to Perseverance", won't leave anyone indifferent.
Moreover, Eikostate's music is well known in Catalonia (Spain). "Riot", the very first song of their album, is used as theme of the TV channel 3XL, from Televisio de Catalunya.
Nobody would think that a band such as Eikostate could ever emerge from a place like Barcelona, Spain. The mix of rock an traditional Japanese music, together with the catchy melodies, is something you can't find today in a scene where radio stations fill your ears with the same old stuff.
"We decided to shut ourselves up in our rehearsal room the needed time to get what we wanted to get, forgoing our desire to play live."
Their creative and personal effort got them two years off stage and they invested that time in a dark room. Although changing some members and the difficulties in finding a record company, that effort finally bores fruit. The record company RGB Suports brought out Eikostate with all their power and creativity.
Prestigious producers showed an interest in Eikostate: Ben Grosse (Korn, Sevendust), Ulrich Wild (Statix-X, Deftones), Sylvia Massy (REM, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Tool, Deftones). Don Casale, (Iron Butterfly, Vanilla Fudge, Rascals, awarded with Gold and Platinum records, Grammy nominee), was one of them and he said:
* "The band attracted me in many aspects: their music, their composer skills, their staging and the pure power of their songs!"
* "Eikostate create an awesome blend of cultures that will remain with you forever."
* "Melodic and intense. Eikostate's work shows a band with no limitations. They transmit the message of bands such as Dredg, Tool or Deftones, mixing it with oriental folklore elements in a way that no one has ever done before. It is a combination that apparently could turn out weird, but it sounds delicious on their hands, though." Uri / Rockzone magazine, album review.
Roger (drums), Eloi (guitar, taishogoto and programming), Luis (bass) and David (vocals, guitar) are Eikostate, and they are ready to show all their potential.
