Rage In My Eyes - "Aces High" (Brazilian Tribute to Iron Maiden)

There goes the siren that warns of the air raid
Then comes the sound of the guns sending flak
Out for the scramble we've got to get airborne
Got to get up for the coming attack.

Jump in the cockpit and start up the engines
Remove all the wheel blocks
There's no time to waste
Gathering speed as we head down the runway
Got to get airborne before it's too late

Running, scrambling, flying
Rolling, turning, diving,
Going in again
Running, scrambling, flying
Rolling, turning, diving,

Run, live to fly, fly to live, do or die
Won't you run, live to fly, fly to live, aces high

Move in to fire at the mainstream of bombers
Let off a sharp burst and then turn away
Roll over, spin round to come in behind them
Move to their blindsides and firing again

Bandits at 8 o'clock move in behind us
Ten ME-109s out of the sun
Ascending and turning our Spitfires to face them
Heading straight for them I press down my guns.

Rolling, turning, diving
Rolling, turning, diving,
Going in again
Rolling, turning, diving
Rolling, turning, diving

Run, live to fly, fly to live, do or die
Won't you run, live to fly, fly to live, aces high.

Brazilian Tribute To Iron Maiden
Πέρυσι η δισκογραφική εταιρεία Secret Services Records κυκλοφόρησε τον δίσκο "Somewhere In Brazil - The Brazilian Tribute To Iron Maiden". Όπως μαρτυρά ο τίτλος πρόκειται για album (διπλό cd) διασκευών σε τραγούδια των Iron Maiden από Βραζιλιάνικα συγκροτήματα. 26 μπάντες, αντίστοιχες διασκευές.

Ανάμεσά τους και οι Rage in My Eyes, οι οποίοι επέλεξαν το "Aces High", το οποίο γνωρίσαμε στον δίσκο των Βρετανών metallers "Powerslave" (το εναρκτήριο κομμάτι) που κυκλοφόρησε τον Σεπτέμβριο του 1984, ενώ έναν μήνα αργότερα "βγήκε" και αυτόνομα ως single (με την διασκευή στο "King of Twilight" των Nektar στην δεύτερη πλευρά του βινυλίου).

Οι Rage in My Eyes μας έρχονται από το Πόρτο Αλέγκρε, την πρωτεύουσα και μεγαλύτερη πόλη της Βραζιλιάνικης πολιτείας Ρίο Γκράντε ντο Σουλ. Δημιουργήθηκαν το 2002 ως Scelerata και το 2018 πήραν το τωρινό τους όνομα. Ως Rage in My Eyes έχουν κυκλοφορήσει έναν "ολοκληρωμένο" δίσκο ("Ice Cell" Αύγουστος 2019) κι ένα single ("I Don’t Want to Say Goodbye" Ιούνιος 2020)...

Δελτίο τύπου: «The Iron Maiden classic “Aces High” has been reworked by Rage In My Eyes - their tribute to the heavy metal legends who they were an opening act for in Porto Alegre, Brazil in October 2019. Their imagining of the classic is melodic, lightly proggy, and a proper homage to one of the most loved songs in metal history.

The illustrious Bruce Dickinson has one of the most recognizable voices in the genre and it’s rare that a band can do it justice - but Rage In My Eyes’ vocalist Jonathas Pozo nails the wide range and theatrics that come through the music.

They do add a creative spin, adding reverb and more gang vocals to the chorus. Rage In My Eyes released their first album “Ice Cell” under that name in 2019, the first offering since a rebrand and slight shift in music.

The band has recently started to blend elements of MILONGA (folk music from southern South America) to their music along with accordion, but to some of the tracks, resulting in a fresh type of music that no one has ever done before. The band quotes about the album:

"In summary, Ice Cell is a manifesto against the superficiality, inertia, coldness of the human being, his indifference, and his corruptible character. An album that seeks this sincere connection with the truth and musicality of each member, explaining their diverse influences in heavy metal and their South Brazilian and South American roots".

Obviously recommended for fans of Iron Maiden, fans of Symphony X and Metallica will also find the new track enjoyable.»
