VAN CANTO - If I Die In Battle (Official)

  • Опубликовано: 18 май 2012
  • | (Amazon) (EMP)
    Innovative, compelling and unique! Van Canto's fourth album once again confirms that guitars are not necessary to deliver first-class metal.
    "Break the Silence" reflects the German sextet's newfound confidence and experience gained by their previous albums' chart entry and the many live performances that followed. The band's main focus centers around sweeping original compositions, in which the vocal acrobats only enlist the help of the drums. "If I Die in Battle", "The Higher Flight", and "Neuer Wind" show off the mature and extraordinary qualities of the band: appeal and power.
    Staying true to tradition, Van Canto also delivers several cover songs ("Primo Victoria", "Bed of Nails", and "Master of the Wind"), as well as illustrious guests appearances. Marcus Siepen (Blind Guardian) can be heard playing the acoustic guitar on the ballad "Spelled in Waters", while Sabaton frontman Joakim Broden steps up to the mic on "Primo Victoria" to give his
    band's hit authenticity. The limited edition digipack also includes a
    bonus cover song ("Bad to the Bone" by Running Wild). In addition, the
    track "Betrayed" features a symphonic "metal-a-cappella" piece with orchestral support, while "A Storm to Come" unveils an exclusive bonus: the first song from "Peer Returns", the Van Canto Crossmedia-Projekt to premiere at the end of this year. "Break the Silence" captivates with strong songwriting and a novel implementation. A cappella metal! Metal like no other!

    Six winds blow as one. They will turn the tide.
    We are marching on, standing side by side
    And we'll carry on until all the fire is gone
    Blown away, away to lands beyond.
    Winds blow as one.
    Six winds blow as one. They will turn the tide.
    We are marching on, standing side by side
    And we'll carry on until all the fire is gone
    Blown away, away to lands beyond.
    Winds blow as one.
    They try to oppress us.
    Steal the faith out of our lives.
    Still they are the flame for dreadful fires.
    They try to undermine us night by night.
    Now they are unmasked. They're full of lies
    They never learned how to stand as one.
    And how to abandon fear.
    We will be their storm-wall closing in.
    If I die in Battle,
    find dark blood upon my steel.
    If I die in Battle,
    tell them I stood, and never kneeled.
    If I die in Battle,
    my soul will be saved and gone.
    I won't die in battle.
    I'll fly north with six winds blowing as one.
    They did not await us and the kingdom we will raise.
    Yes we are their nightmare deep within.
    They underestimate us.
    Our faith alive for our freedom and our new life to begin.

    They will never bring us down.
    They never rule our life.
    We will be a tempest rising high.
    If I die in Battle,
    find dark blood upon my steel.
    If I die in Battle,
    tell them I stood, and never kneeled.
    If I die in Battle,
    my soul will be saved and gone.
    I won't die in battle.
    I'll fly north with six winds blowing as one.
    What might end and we'll start again.
    We will never die.
    We will be a thunderstorm of life.
    Six winds blow as one. They will turn the tide.
    We are marching on, standing side by side
    And we'll carry on until all the fire is gone
    Blown away, away to lands beyond.
    Winds blow as one.
    If I die in Battle,
    find dark blood upon my steel.
    If I die in Battle,
    tell them I stood, and never kneeled.
    If I die in Battle,
    my soul will be saved and gone.
    I won't die in battle.
    I'll fly north with six winds blowing as one.

    Sometimes, when you love metal, you get that superior feeling of belonging to an elite, like you hold some truth radio-listeners will never reach. It feels pretty fucking good, actually.

      And thus arrogant metalheads were born. As if metal was some sort of "grand" music like classical or jazz... Don't be mistaken, I love metal, I grew up on Nightwish and NIN, but don't try to tell people that it's not musically very simple and that the music is not aiming to induce some sort of a primordial feeling of superiority...

      +Squishy T Gastrodon I've tried nightcore. Not impressed because it's mostly copy/paste music that has been sped up and re-uploaded. Remixed nightcore is cool but a majority could be made just using the RUclip tempo change feature on the original music track.
