March in Arms - "Nisei" (lyric video)

Behind the wire burned
The fire of a generation,
Loyalty they would prove
They took a chance and pledged
Their lives to serve
Under the number 100/442
If questioned why they’d rather
To die than lose the sacred honor
of their family name
A quiet pride would change the tide
And make a grateful nation,
If they live to see the day
Misplaced suspicion of blame
But they were patriots all the same

Their nation in need
They went to find their place to be
A second class as some believed
And yet they fought so valiantly

A day of rest the call came in
To save a lost battalion
Two attempts had been made
Deep in the Vosges they’ll go for broke
And face a week of fighting,
Never losing their fame
One by one a leveled gun
A screaming charge advancing
Hajiro leading the way
Spilling their blood over the mud
To save 200 Texans
And their legend was made
So many would pay the price
But they had more than one war to fight

Their nation in need
They went to find their place to be
A second class as some believed
And yet they fought so valiantly


Στους March in Arms αναφερθήκαμε για πρώτη φορά προ τριετίας παρουσιάζοντας το ομώνυμο ντεμπούτο τους. Αμερικάνικη μπάντα, η οποία δημιουργήθηκε πριν από εννέα χρόνια και αυτοχαρακτηρίζεται κάπως έτσι: «thrashy military power metal».

Δηλώνει ως επιρροές μπάντες όπως οι Metallica, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Black Sabbath, Pantera, Judas Priest και κυκλοφόρησε στα τελειώματα του περασμένου έτους τον δεύτερο δίσκο της υπό τον τίτλο "Pulse of the Daring". Αυτοχρηματοδοτούμενη κυκλοφορία (σε cd και ψηφιακή μορφή), η οποία θα "βγει" και "επισήμως" μέσω δισκογραφικής εταιρείας (RFL Records) στις αρχές Ιουλίου.

Δελτίο τύπου: «South Dakota’s, Military-Themed, Power Metal Aces, March In Arms are setting to launch their new album “Pulse Of The Daring” on July 1st to a global audience.

March In Arms (MIA) was formed in 2012, pulling from a side project dating back to 2004. While members Jon Parker (guitar) and Ryan Knutson (guitar/vocals) were touring in their former band, Nodes Of Ranvier (Facedown Records/Victory Records), Knutson worked on the foundational riffs and lyrics that would eventually launch MIA as a full band years later.

Based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, the band also includes Scott McGuire (bass,) formerly of indie rock band The Spill Canvas (Sire Records), Sheldon Swan (guitar) and Phil Mueller (drums).

With influences that include American classics like Metallica, Slayer, Pantera and Megadeth fused with European power metal undertones. The result is very riff driven with epic chorus lines and soaring melodies, plus lyrical themes centering on war and the personal stories of its combatants.

Το συγκρότημα March in Arms
In 2015 March In Arms independently released their self-titled debut album; recorded at All Poetic Audio with Jeremy Schaeffer of Earth Groans (Solid State Records). That debut, “March In Arms,” was re-released in 2018 to include two live tracks “Firebreather” and “Mouth Of The Kracken.” The second time around the album was backed up with a PR campaign and received overwhelming positive reviews, winning album of the year from Rock Queen Reviews.

In November 2018 the band entered the studio at All Poetic Audio to produce the follow-up album, “Pulse Of The Daring”. Before the album could be released Scott McGuire (bass) and Pill Mueller (drums) stepped away from the band in December 2019. They have since been replaced with Collin Citrowske (bass) and Bobby Cook (drums).

With a once again solidified lineup in 2021 and armed with worldwide distribution, the band is geared and focused on reaching the worldwide masses and playing as many live shows as possible. Be prepared for a full-on assault as MIA delivers the blitzkrieg that is “Pulse Of The Daring”.»

March in Arms: «During WW2, Americans of Japanese ancestry were forced from their homes and relocated to internment camps. This is the incredible story of the young men who volunteered to fight despite this injustice. They would soon earn a reputation amongst their fellow service members as one of the best fighting units of the war. They are still celebrated in France for their heroic sacrifice in liberating the civilian population. This song is dedicated to the 442nd Regiment and 100th Battalion. This is "Nisei".
