Dirkschneider & the Old Gang - "Face Of A Stranger" (video)

Το ep των DATOG "Arising"
Who's the guy in the mirror
I've never seen before
Afraid to let him in here
So I better lock the door

I forget how to remember
The present and the past
Every day is an adventure
Every day might be the last

Like a face of a stranger
Look me in the eye
Like a face of a stranger
It is time to say good-bye

Many moments full of flashbacks
Reflect another life
Reality has turned black
It's gonna be alright

I'm living in a dreamworld
Always on my own
And missing all the true words
Where is everybody gone

On a face of a stranger
Not afraid to cry
On a face of a stranger
No more time to reason why

Look a stranger in the eye

Fading oceans of memories
Bring tears of anguish and shame
A song of vanishing melodies
Where days and nights sound the same

Time is endless for evermore
Like dreams on wind's golden gale
Behind the rim of the final door
The sounds of darkness prevail

Like a face of a stranger
Look me in the eye
Like a face of a stranger
It is time to say good-bye

Like a face of a stranger
Look me in the eye
Like a face of a stranger
It is time to say good-bye

On a face of a stranger
Not afraid to cry
On a face of a stranger
No more time to reason why

Who’s the guy in the mirror
I see a face of a stranger
Always on my own
Where is everybody gone
I wish I could remember
But I’ve lost it all forever
Look a stranger in the eye


Τρία πρώην μέλη των Accept, ο Udo Dirkschneider, ο Peter Baltes και ο Stefan Kaufmann ένωσαν τις δυνάμεις τους. Η μπάντα ονομάσθηκε Dirkschneider & the Old Gang (για συντομία DATOG). Ως προς το μουσικό τους ύφος; Με το παρελθόν (και το παρόν) των μελών της μπάντας δεν νομίζω ότι χρειάζονται ιδιαίτερες αναλύσεις. Αυτό που φαντάζεστε (και περιμένετε), Acceptικό heavy metal.

Το συγκρότημα πρωτοσυστήθηκε τον περασμένο Σεπτέμβριο με το τραγούδι "Where The Angels Fly". Το ντεμπούτο του είναι ep, θα περιλαμβάνει τρία τραγούδια, τιτλοφορείται "Arising" κι έχει προγραμματισθεί να κυκλοφορήσει (σε cd και βινύλιο) στα τελειώματα του καλοκαιριού...

Δελτίο τύπου: «DATOG, short for Dirkschneider & The Old Gang, consists of Accept / U.D.O. / Dirkschneider frontman Udo Dirkschneider and his longtime companions Peter Baltes (bass; ex- Accept), Stefan Kaufmann (guitar; ex- Accept, U.D.O.) and Mathias Dieth (guitar; Sinner, U.D.O.) as well as Udo's son Sven Dirkschneider (drums; U.D.O., Dirkschneider) plus singer Manuela Bibert.

If these names don't make your mouth water, figuratively speaking, then you have missed out on the past 40 years of German metal history. The best thing about Dirkschneider & The Old Gang, however, is that although the new project is musically in the tradition of it's legendary predecessors, they are currently working on brand new songs.

The video clip of the first number, 'Where The Angels Fly', can be found on YouTube (2.3 mio views) since September 2020, the second video, 'Face Of A Stranger', has been released on the internet on April 29. 2021, followed by a third clip 'Every Heart Is Burning' on May 28, 2021.

Then on August 27, 2021, a single with all three songs will hit the stores as a CD, a 12" vinyl and a download. So eyes and ears open, here you can expect great things!»
