"We're a Hard Rock Blues influenced band from Anaheim CA. A 5 piece comprised of Aracely Fernandez on Vocals, Edgar Flores on Lead, Alan Criss on Rhythm, Tristan Jacobo on Bass, and Luis Delgado on Drums.
A lot of time and effort went into finding the sound and music we wanted to perform, as well as taking the influences of the area we live in and the music we grew up on and dreamed of performing ourselves. A recurring theme with our music and lyrics is involving some relation to dark themes or closely related to witchcraft themes. The reason being is also relevant to the name of the band "Brujas" meaning Witches in Spanish. The meaning behind the name is that the term for a witch has been used for many different situations, most common used in negative context, such as the Salem Witch Trials and burnings, folklore and even fairytales with poison involved. We enjoy the idea of an outcast, an individual who relatively may have a better understanding than others and be castrated for it. That is how we see a Bruja.
Off of our First EP we have put together a variety of influences as a means of figuring not only ourselves but what we feel truly represents the music we want to play, and can rightfully interpret the meanings behind our songs. The variation from the heavy lead sound from "Into the Rabbit Hole" and "Ash & Fire", To a more Ska and Dance track "Night With The Witches" or the Hard Blues track "Never Felt Alive" to our first song ever written together that encompasses almost all of that "Blacklight" Each of these songs have their relevance to. Each of us have witnessed the music scene and surrounding area grow and supported the likes of many individuals and their art. We simply wish to make our own staple in the area and follow the dream we each hope to achieve."
