In this post 9/11 climate, David Ernesto Gutierrez-Guevara also known as Eternal Love (born September 11, 1985) is a politically active rapper and revolutionary. Due to the fact that there was a civil war going on in his country of Nicaragua, he was born in San Jose, Costa Rica and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia; a city known for having it's own share of drama. Eternal Love's musical style can be described as a combination of a pop friendly image with an unyielding back alley style to compliment the views expressed in his lyrics: a mixture of narration on topics such as politics, poverty, religion, social class, racism, tyranny, the truths of the world and what life indefinitely beholds. Growing up on the streets of East Vancouver, the young man became infatuated with hip hop culture. He also began to study in depth about the Revolutionary ideas that had caused a history of uprising in the indigenous community of his native Central America. He studied, began to form his lyrics and created songs that would prove to be an indication of what was to come... entering into his recording career at the early age of 18, putting all that he had learned into his music. Eternal Love's music is inspired by historical and often political figures such as Mahatma Gandhi, Che Guevara, Augusto Cesar Sandino, Huey P Newton, Tupac Amaru Shakur and Mumia Abu-Jamal. His musical vision is to use the might of the pen before the might of the sword to spread the truth through music. Turning his eye to production, he has earned a diploma in Audio Engineering & Production from Pacific Audio Visual Institute which is synonymous with his success at making music. He was now focused on getting an album together. ... In 2007, touching up some of the songs he had written, Eternal Love released his first album "The Beginning" without the help of a record label or distribution, instead using his own hard earned money and a belief that music should sell itself; no marketing gimmick needed. "The Beginning" featured appearances from underground stars Mickey D and Che Pablucci among others. Eternal Love quickly became well-known throughout the underground. As the music industry crumbles, he founded the Third World Order Productions movement out of a survivalist desire to keep his artistic independence and power over his production. Building on the truth with an uncompromising brand of street science, his message to other artists and his fans is to quit being played by the system and educate your selves. Established in the underground circuit, Eternal's productive ideas, experiences and struggle recently paid off during a visit back to his highly musical and artistic family's native land of Nicaragua. He was embraced by Nicaraguan fans, performing at an outdoor festival before an estimated 15,000 fans. Back from this successful tour, the self-described "democratic desperado" is now working with some of Vancouver's heaviest hitters trying to spread the brutal truth, the message, the love and the rhyme to the multi-cultural population of Canada and the world through a hand-to-hand out of the trunk hustle. Stay tuned for the release of his highly anticipated double album...
