Taliön - "Killing The World" (lyric video)

Ο δίσκος των Taliön - "Killing the World"
Why must we die,
You can’t deny,
The right to survive
Why are you killing the world

Inhabitants of this dying world
This earth we call our home
Man is turning everything
Into fire, burning stone

Lust for power,
Goes round and round
They won’t stop
Vntil we hit the ground
Imminent danger,
They refuse to see
Destroying the land,
Polluting the seas

Killing the world
Open up your eyes and see
Killing the world
Destroying all
That lives and breathes

Toxic waste and acid rain
Pollution fills the skies
They knew that it
Would have to end
They knew it was a lie

Lust for power,
Goes round and round
They won’t stop until
We hit the ground
Imminent danger,
They refuse to see
Destroying the land,
Polluting the seas

What is the solution,
To this mad mad world
Who’s gonna stop them,
They don’t even care
About you or me,
About land or sea
We’re heading for destruction,
The thought is killing me
Multinational corporations
Planning to deceive
Nature’s balance disrupted now,
It’s plain for all to see

Their lust for power,
Goes round and round
They won’t stop until
We hit the ground
Imminent danger,
They refuse to see
Destroying the world,
Polluting the seas

Killing the world
Open up your eyes and see
Killing the world
Destroying all that lives and breathes

Killing the world, Killing the world
Killing the world, Killing the world
Killing the world, Killing the world
They’re all killing the world


Οι Tröjan δημιουργήθηκαν στις αρχές της δεκαετίας του ογδόντα στην Αγγλία. Κυκλοφόρησαν τέσσερα demos κι έναν "ολοκληρωμένο" δίσκο το 1985 υπό τον τίτλο "Chasing the Storm" με μεγάλη απήχηση και στους underground κύκλους. Κάπου στα 1987 μετονομάσθηκαν σε Lethal με τις πληροφορίες να είναι συγκεχυμένες.

Σύμφωνα με την ιστοσελίδα metal archives ηχογράφησαν ένα demo (ή album) το 1988 με τον τίτλο "Twilight Sound":

«At some point around 1987 they changed their name to Lethal, and reportedly recorded an album or demo titled "Twilight Sound" in 1988, which information hasn't yet surfaced about online other than that the recording took place. It's commonly believed to have never been released.»

Εν συνεχεία άλλαξαν (εκ' νέου) το όνομά τους σε Taliön με δισκογραφικό απολογισμό ένα album ("Killing the World") το 1989 κι ένα demo (το ίδιο έτος). Η Cult Metal Classics ανέλαβε την επανακυκλοφορία του δίσκου (όπως έκανε και με το "Chasing the Storm" των Tröjan) με μπόλικα καλούδια όπως μας πληροφορεί και το δελτίο τύπου της εταιρείας:

«Unless you are living under a rock, you should be familiar with Tröjan from the UK, the band that back in 1985 released one of the 10 best British metal records of all time, the legendary "Chasing the Storm".

The band evolved into Taliön and what seemed to be next to impossible, they managed to come up with just as great songwriting and released a follow up studio album in 1989 by the title "Killing the World".

Fast forward to the year 2000. We came in touch with the two masterminds behind the band, guitar player extraordinaire Pete Wadeson and singer Graeme Wyatt and with their blessings and ongoing co-operation we agreed to officially re-release both "Chasing the Storm" and "Killing the World" in amazing editions on vinyl and CD with bonus stuff.

Also, for the first time ever, you get to see the lyric video we did for the title track of the TALIÖN album "Killing the World", a song way ahead of its time, with a very strong message about environmental change and mankind milking the planet, with detrimental consequences for humanity, animals and the entire eco-system.

So, aside from being a great song, the message that it carries is so important that deserves to be shared by everyone. Hopefully mankind will soon come to its senses and realize that exploiting the environment is something that needs to change, otherwise future generations will be forever doomed.»
