Awaken - "Ride Like The Wind" (video)

Ο δίσκος των Awaken "Out of the Shadows"
It is the night
My body's weak
I'm on the run
No time to sleep
I've got to ride
Ride like the wind
To be free again

And I've got such a long way to go
To make it to the border of Mexico
So I'll ride like the wind
Ride like the wind

I was born the son of a lawless man
Always spoke my mind
With a gun in my hand
Lived nine lives
Gunned down ten
Gonna ride like the wind

And I've got such a long way to go
To make it to the border of Mexico
So I'll ride like the wind
Ride like the wind

Accused and tried and told to hang
I was nowhere in sight when the church bells rang
Never was the kind to do as I was told
Gonna ride like the wind before I get old

It is the night
My body's weak
I'm on the run
No time to sleep
I've got to ride
Ride like the wind
To be free again

And I've got such a long way to go
To make it to the border of Mexico
So I'll ride like the wind
Ride like the wind


Το 1987 σχηματίσθηκαν στην Νέα Υόρκη οι Lazarus. Παρέμειναν ενεργοί μέχρι το 2009 κυκλοφορώντας ένα demo το 1989 κι ένα ep ("Episode One" - 2007). Το 2009 ο τραγουδιστής της μπάντας σχημάτισε τους Awaken.

Μετά από τρία χρόνια "βγήκε" το ομώνυμο ντεμπούτο τους (μέσω της Mausoleum Records) και πέρυσι ο (αυτοχρηματοδοτούμενος) δεύτερος δίσκος τους υπό τον τίτλο "Out of the Shadows". Προ ημερών, στα τέλη Νοεμβρίου, το album επανακυκλοφόρησε μέσω της Pure Steel Records...

Το τραγούδι "Ride Like The Wind" ήταν το πρώτο single του Αμερικανού Christopher Cross. Ηχογραφήθηκε το 1979 και κυκλοφόρησε αυτόνομα (ως single) τον Φεβρουάριο του 1980 κι ως μέρος του ομώνυμου δίσκου που "βγήκε" δύο μήνες νωρίτερα (Δεκέμβριος 1979).

Αφηγείται την ιστορία ενός καταδικασμένου εγκληματία που θέλησε να διαφύγει - ξεφύγει στο Μεξικό. Ο συνθέτης είχε πει για το τραγούδι: «We were living in Houston at the time, and on the way down to Austin to record the songs, it was just a beautiful Texas day. I took acid. So I wrote the words on the way down from Houston to Austin.»

Το "Ride Like The Wind" συστήθηκε στο heavy metal κοινό μέσω της διασκευής των Saxon. Ήταν το εναρκτήριο τραγούδι στον δίσκο "Destiny" που κυκλοφόρησε τον Ιούνιο του 1988. Νωρίτερα είχε κυκλοφορήσει και ως single (με τα ""Red Alert" - "Rock the Nations (live)" στην δεύτερη πλευρά του βινυλίου)...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Awaken are the newest underground sensation out of the US. The band, was founded in 2009 by singer Glenn DaGrossa (ex-Lazarus) and in 2012 they released their debut self-titled album. In 2019, the band completed their follow up, a 90 minute double album titled "Out Of The Shadows".

Now signed with Pure Steel Records, the New York based Prog Metal band are preparing to release that album worldwide. "Out Of The Shadows" shows Awaken as band at the height of their work so far. Awaken exploit the full breadth of Prog Metal with symphonic elements. Awaken are so independent that any comparison with Fates Warning, Dream Theater and Symphony X is forbidden.»
