about

International Press about La Cura (2008)

-Metal Hammer (UK)
This month's global metal discovery is the mighty Cultura Tres from Venezuela.

-Doommantia (USA)
Complex riffs with a substantial amount of dissonance [but also with] the enlightening magic of psychedelia, so every now and then one gets caught by some Hendrixian, trippy spacey bluesy groove emerging from the general oppressive sounds.

-The Soda Shop (USA)
Complete darkness rules the world of Cultura Tres. Think Puya, Mars Volta and Alice In Chains meeting up in a dark alley with machetes and maracas. I love this shit!

-Spark (Czech)
Revolutionary resistance runs through the entire record, and Cultura Tres has no trouble in enabling its listeners to share its pain and annoyance with global politics. This band obviously has no need for compromises.

-MetroPolice (Venezuela):
To those who gave up on heavy music: this band has the rare power to make even the most jaded listener enthusiastic again.

-Burrn (Japan)
The band's style of dark, gloomy riffs (…) is strong, tight, and as heavy as it unique.

-Abyss (Czech)
The strong emotional Latin American temperament woven into the tracks easily carries us into dark and often dead-end social alleys. It's a fact that I needed a bit more time to absorb the album, but I got even more into the music for that.

Track Name: A Brighter Light
- A Brighter Light -

the rumble is louder now
and the crying has stopped

the sound of silence has made me deaf
I hear no more of all your prayers
I feel no more of your despair
and the rumble turned into a voice
my own voice
a brighter light

I hanged your sin where I hanged mine
I pull the rope of our patience
I feel no longer
your pulse

no tiene caso salvar una vida gris
para perder una eternidad

didn’t I promise you a paradise?
didn’t I say you’ll see the light
a brighter light?

how can it be so dark?
has the world changed this much
or do I see it truthfully for the first time?
Track Name: Crosses and Lines
- Crosses And Lines -

I saw them laying side by side
I hear them talking backwards
I can smell them
I can smell them
can you smell them too?
yeah, I can smell them…
crosses and lines
crosses and lines
I saw them falling down the stairs
I see them hanging upside down
I can smell them
yeah, I can smell them
can’t you smell them too?
I can smell them…
Track Name: Lost
- Lost -

the years have passed and I look back
I saw there was no time for us to stop
there's no way to stop that clock
to see the time that we have lost
lost
we have been waiting way too long
and there is no time for us to waste
to save the world we left behind
to reclaim the things that we have lost
to remember friends that we have lost
to bring back the days that we have lost
to remember friends that we have lost
to regret the day that we got lost
for so long
why have we forgotten all our past
why are we forgetting who we are
why are we pretending to be blind
why we always leave someone behind
I can't go back we missed our chance
and there's no more time for us it's late
to save the world we left behind
to reclaim the things that we have lost
to remember friends that we have lost
to bring back the days that we have lost
to remember friends that we have lost
to regret the day that we got lost
for so long
now it's too late
we got nothing left to lose
we got nothing left to save
we kept nothing of that world
Track Name: My Word
- My Word -

yo soy innumerable, no tengo final
sigue mi sendero

And I walk on water, to seal their faith
woken up the dead to feed on my disgrace
and spread the word of god
my Word
and I trade their fears for anger and revenge
their anger my revenge
the flags were turning red
a dark wind was blowing
announcing those who claim
to spread the word of god
my Word
I heard the shots again, they’re getting louder
the smell of death is taking over
salvation
domination
and I see the truth..
don’t you see the truth?
and I wrote my visions on that book
read it to the world
spread the word of god, spread the word of god
my Word
my War
Track Name: No Mas Sangre
I said STOP
you’re not gonna change my mind with propaganda
STOP
no vas a llenar mis venas de tu odio
no mas sangre
no mas sangre
STOP
you're not gonna give a new name to our beliefs
STOP
you're not gonna train my anger with religion
no mas sangre
no mas sangre
I guess it is time to look at your figures
and make a balance of "right and wrong"
wrong twisted to be right
right twisted to be wrong
aquel que llama justicia a su propia guerra
que duerme y no sufre culpas, que vende y no compra ideas
aquel que se anuncia a gritos
no tiene paz, no tiene alma..
no mas sangre
no mas sangre
no mas sangre
no mas sangre
no mas!
Track Name: Third World Sentence
- Third World Sentence -

third world sentence
our sentence...

face the eyes of hunger and sickness
and meet the point of no return
now try to judge them
now try to blame them
third world sentence
our sentence

smell the cell of nobody's son
and read his writings on the wall
now try to judge him
now try to blame him
third world sentence

bleeding wounds remain to be our legacy
we’re bleeding oil to keep a rat race
we’re bleeding oil to feed the dying system
a price we shouldn’t have paid
but still pay…

share the fears of children sold
to please the lust of western creeps
now try to judge them
now try to blame them
third world sentence
third world sentence
third world sentence
it’s time for changes
third world sentence
it’s time for changes
third world sentence
you’ll see changes…
Track Name: Muere
I am not the son of your mistakes
I never paid to wear that faith
I’m growing out of your control
I’ll make some windows on these walls
watch me
erase your words
erase your laws
reclaim our souls
decirte adios
muere!
ahogate en la sangre que derramas
watch us reclaim
our world
I’m not the son of your regrets
I’m just drawing back the line
I’m growing out of your control
I’ll make some windows on these walls
watch me
erase your words
erase your laws
reclaim our souls
decirte adios
muere!
ahogate en la sangre que derramas
watch me reclaim
our world
MUERE
see how we change the rules
MUERE
the rules that kept us small
MUERE
see how we make the windows on these walls
Track Name: And Then I Woke Up...
- And Then I Woke Up -

...and when the names were announced at first
I couldn't hear them
grabbed what was left in there
wrote the numbers on my hand
and took one last look at it
I heard the voice again
I could recognize some words this time
but my thoughts won't let me listen
martes seis de septiembre
diez y nueve horas
close the gate
Track Name: La Cura
- La Cura -
es la cura el mal
que divide siempre
es la cura el mal
que me das
no a la fe ciega
no a la ilusión
no al mar de sangre
no al dios sin voz
digo no
digo no
no a la matanza
no a la misión
no a la desgracia
no a la invasión
se ahogan en la culpa
los gritos que callan
digo no a quellos que siembran odio en la ignorancia
digo no a un libro que me condena al miedo y a la culpa
digo no, digo no,
digo no a una salvación que ha asesinado a la verdad
digo no!
Track Name: El Ultimo Dia
