Paladin - "The River Dragon Has Come" (Nevermore cover)

Today the warning came in the flood
Architects and fools never cared for poor men's blood
Cursed to repeat the past they are
The river dragon swims upstream

They've built another wall
The three will
Save us from the flood
Washed away we drown

The three will fall
The river dragon
Has come
Souls wash away

The earth has spoken and taken them to their graves
Those who cannot remember the last
Fall away, far away
The distance meets its task

The three will
Save us from the flood
Washed away we drown

The three will fall
The river dragon
Has come
Souls wash away

The earth has spoken and taken them to their graves
The river dragon has come
At first light of dawn
The earth has spoken

And in the crush they are gone
The three will
Save us from the flood
Washed away we drown

The three will fall
The river dragon
Has come
Souls wash away

The earth has spoken and taken them to their graves
In the mass destruction the bringer shows his form
Technology the beast
The seventh crown


Το ep των Paladin "Anamnesis"
Δύο κυκλοφορίες πέρυσι (2019) για τους Paladin. Μετά το ντεμπούτο τους ("Ascension"), οι Αμερικανοί metallers "έβγαλαν" στα τελειώματα του περασμένου έτους το τριών τραγουδιών ep "Anamnesis". Ουσιαστικά πρόκειται για tribute στον Warrel Dane καθώς και τα τρία μουσικά κομμάτια είναι διασκευές σε Nevermore.

Οι Paladin μας έρχονται από την Ατλάντα. Δημιουργήθηκαν προ τετραετίας αναφέρουν ως επιρροές μπάντες όπως οι Iron Maiden, Metallica, Dio, Lost Horizon, Angra, Dream Theater, Helloween, Nevermore, Symphony X, Galneryus, Racer X και μας παρουσιάζονται κάπως έτσι:

«Fast, melodic, and technical, Atlanta’s Paladin is on a mission to bring some European flavor to the US metal scene. The foursome blends soaring vocals, harsh rasps, catchy melodies, and fiery guitar work reminiscent of the 80s to create their own brand of thrashy power metal.»

Έχουν κυκλοφορήσει δύο demos ("Bury the Light" - 2015, "Demo 2017" - 2017), έναν "ολοκληρωμένο" δίσκο ("Ascension"- Μάιος 2019) συν τούτο το ep - φόρο τιμής στον Warrel Dane...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Riding high on the success of their debut album, Ascension, Paladin have announced that they will release a three-track tribute to Nevermore titled, Anamnesis.

To create their own distinctive sound, the young Atlanta-based four piece have drawn from a number of influences including 1980’s thrash and 1990’s melodic death metal - with Nevermore firmly in the epicentre. An inspiration to many bands who followed in their footsteps, Nevermore split in 2011, and hopes for a reunion ended when vocalist Warrel Dane died in 2017.»

Taylor Washington: «River Dragon was an obvious choice since it's probably their most recognizable song.»

  1. Νομίζω ότι πρέπει να ασχοληθώ με Nevermore αν κρίνω από αυτό το τραγούδι.

    1. Να το κάνεις, αξίζει τον κόπο. Τούτο το τραγούδι είναι από τον δίσκο "Dead Heart in a Dead World". Το αμέσως προηγούμενο ("Dreaming Neon Black") είναι το αγαπημένο μου από Nevermore...

  2. Καλοί αλλά υπερεκτιμημένοι οι Nevermore.

    1. Μεγάλη κουβέντα αυτή, αν και σε γενικές γραμμές συμφωνώ. Πάντως είναι ένα θέμα το μουσικό τους έργο κι άλλο θέμα το πως προβλήθηκαν από τον "μεταλλικό" τύπο της εποχής τους...
