Race To Olvido
Race To Olvido
After a moderately successful stint with the hip hop group G-Ridden during his teenage years he broke off and set out for Peru on an exchange. There on a joking whim he auditioned for an up and coming power metal group called Cry baby. He was chosen as a backup vocalist and a keyboard player. Shortly after, however, he was put on lead vocals after a series of highly successful gigs.
Throughout the year Cry Baby toured and played with the likes of Coky Kaya, La Sarita, and Tremelo. They were featured in the Expo Rock Peru tour and were upcoming band of the year on two local news stations. Eduardo had to leave the glory of Cry Baby's success to come back home to Lake St. Louis in the US after his exchange was over.
That's when friend and guitarist Ben Bigelow suggested they play some stuff together. It was an instant click as Eduardo's versatile vocals mixed with Ben's Dark Mysterious riffs to create and ambient flamenco progressive sound. They then decided to fulfill Eduardo's dream of a Concept band "THE RACE TO OLVIDO." Influenced heavily by the story telling styles of Coheed and Cambria, Ayreon, The Mars Volta, and Forgive Durden, Race To Olvido is a versatile mix of classic, ambient, progressive, flamenco, and metal to tell the story of a man named Aden who OD's on sleeping pills after experiencing one failure after another in life. Instead of Dieing, though, he enters the mysterious world of Olvido, a world under current invasion from a dark force previously unknown to Olvidos inhabitants.
They are given the name "the black scourge", warriors that are unhuman in their figure, hostility, and manner. With their armies being pushed to the brink, the royal imperial guard fight for their survival around the kingdom. Aden enters as a battle is raging between the forces as the Guard is caught "off guard" by the scourge. He discovers a woman unconscious on the ground with a broken leg in danger of being captured.
He picks her up and sprints into the forest on an impulse. Now he is given the divine duty of being this woman s guardian and delivering her to safety. Little does he know her importance to their world as well as his own. Who is behind this scourge invasion? What led to Aden coming here? What is his purpose?
