Headless - "Woman In White" (lyric video)

Το single των Headless "Woman In White"
There’s a certain slant of light
On a winter afternoon
That oppresses like the weight
Of cathedral heavenly tunes

We can find no scar
Here on the inside
The hurt it gives us
Where the meanings are
’tis like the distance
On the look of death

How excellent the heaven
When earth cannot be had
It was too late for mankind
But early yet for god

We can find no scar
Here on the inside
The hurt it gives us
Where the meanings are
’tis like the distance
On the look of death

Now the bodiless begun
Two worlds like audiences
Disperse and leave the soul alone

None may teach it anything
It’s the seal of our despair
An imperial affliction
Sent us of to the air tonight

We can find no scar
Here on the inside
The hurt it gives us
Where the meanings are
’tis like the distance
On the look of death

Now the bodiless begun
Two worlds like audiences
Disperse and leave the soul alone
On a mighty afternoon
Creation looking on
The flesh surrendered, here’s his moan

On this long storm the rainbow rose
On this late morn the sun
The clouds, like listless elephants
Horizons straggled down
The birds rose smiling in their nests
The gales indeed were done
Alas! Alas! How heedless were the eyes!

Γνώρισα την φωνή του Göran Edman μέσα από τους δίσκους του Malmsteen (όπως και ο περισσότερος κόσμος λογικά). Τραγούδησε στην μπάντα του Σουηδού guitar hero από το 1989 έως το 1992 και τον ακούμε στους δίσκους "Eclipse" και "Fire & Ice". Ο Göran Edman έχει μία μακρά διαδρομή στην μουσική συμμετέχοντας σε αρκετές μπάντες και albums.

Headless: Ιταλικό συγκρότημα. Δημιουργήθηκε το 1993, διαλύθηκε επτά χρόνια αργότερα. Στο συγκεκριμένο χρονικό διάστημα κυκλοφόρησαν ένα ep ("Future to Past" 1996) κι έναν "ολοκληρωμένο" δίσκο ("Inside You" 1998).

Το 2011 συναντήθηκαν οι δρόμοι του Edman με τους Headless με αποτέλεσμα την επανασύνδεση της μπάντας. Δύο full length albums και αρκετά singles το δισκογραφικό αποτέλεσμα της συνεργασίας. Ο τρίτος δίσκος τους, υπό τον τίτλο "Square One", έχει προγραμματισθεί να κυκλοφορήσει μέσα στο 2021.

Το έδαφος προετοιμάζει το lyric video του τραγουδιού "Woman In White", οι στίχοι του οποίου προέρχονται από ποίημα της Αμερικανίδας Emily Elizabeth Dickinson (10 Δεκεμβρίου 1830 - 15 Μαΐου 1886). Η Emily πέρασε το μεγαλύτερο μέρος της ζωής της μένοντας αποκλεισμένη στο σπίτι των γονιών της στο Άμερστ και ολόκληρη η εργογραφία της παρέμεινε ανέκδοτη μέχρι τον θάνατό της. Εξαίρεση αποτέλεσαν μονάχα πέντε ποιήματα, από τα οποία τρία δημοσιεύτηκαν ανώνυμα και ένα εν αγνοία της ίδιας της ποιήτριας.

Δελτίο τύπου: «The European hard rock group Headless - composed of members who have performed alongside the likes of Yngwie Malmsteen, Geoff Tate (ex-Queensryche) and Elegy – has signed with M-Theory Audio.

Their new record “Square One,” which blends classic rock catchiness with heavier progressive metal influences, will be released later this year. First single “Woman in White” - an energetic rocker with a melodic power metal vibe includes lyrics inspired by the works of classic American poet Emily Dickinson - is available for streaming and download now on all digital music platforms.

A video in which the ghost of the death-obsessed poetess is projected in a typical video game setting, was directed by Dimitar Stamenov (Sabaton, Motorhead). The signing and new album is the latest chapter in the saga of a band whose members have amassed an impressive array of credits throughout their respective careers. Goran Edman has been the group’s lead vocalist since 2011.

The two Headless albums to which he has lent his melodic croons so far - 2013’s “Growing Apart” and 2016’s “Melt The Ice Away” - join a lengthy resume that began during the 1980s as a part of Swedish hard rockers Madison and Swedish Erotica; included stints during the 1990s as a vocalist for Yngwie Malmsteen and John Norum (Europe); and continued with multiple groups into the 21st Century, most notably alongside members of The Flower Kings in the progressive metal band Karmakanic.

We are so proud of this new agreement with M-Theory. We finally landed in the US with a proper distribution network,” states Walter Cianciusi, founding member of the band. “Can’t wait to play these new songs in a city near you!” Headless was founded in 1996 by cousins Walter (guitars) and Enrico Cianciusi (drums).

The original incarnation of the band released the 1996 EP “Future to Past” and the 1998 full-length “Inside You” before disbanding in 2000. Walter and Dario Parente (who along with Walter is part of Geoff Tate’s band, and recently guested on Tate’s Sweet Oblivion project) revived the name in 2011 with an entirely new lineup, centering the new music around catchy rock choruses, progressive metal technicality and Edman’s powerful vocals.

That formula - aided by drummer Scott Rockenfield (Queensryche) - formed the basis of their 2013 comeback record “Growing Apart.” Enrico rejoined Headless in 2014, and subsequently contributed drumming duties on 2016’s “Melt The Ice Away,” which also featured a guest appearance from guitarist Jim Matheos (Fates Warning).

In addition to the two full-length records that Headless has recorded since their 2011 revival, the band has been a consistent live presence on European stages, performing alongside Fates Warning, Queensryche, Tygers of Pan Tang, Angra, Skid Row, Bonfire, D.A.D., Candlemass, The Dead Daisies and more.

The group took their veteran presence back into the studio in 2020 for the recording of their upcoming full-length, “Square One.” Their existing mastery of rock-solid AOR anthems is bolstered on the new record by new bassist Martin Helmantel, whose playing helped provide the backbone for a decade’s worth of stellar progressive metal from Dutch rockers Elegy from 1992 through 2002.

I’ve long followed Goran Edman’s career, finding him to be one of the more underrated voices of hard rock who consistently delivers,” states label head Marco Barbieri.

When Walter shipped the new Headless material, I immediately knew I wanted us to be involved. Not just for the opportunity to finally work with Goran, but also due to the strength of the new material and the ability to tread the line of classic hard rock while stepping into more adventurous realms. Plus, the addition of Martin from Elegy, made this one a no brainer.”»
