Life Artist - "Tightrope Walker" (video)

Now there's no chance to turn and start all over
I'm reeling in a daydream that falls apart
The world is moving too fast for my imperfection
I'm trapped in my own mind with a burning heart

I'm striding through the center of the storm
I'm striding until the rope is torn
The rope is torn

They're waiting to see me falling
Watching the sky, me and my tightrope
They pray for my death, my failure
As I pass the edge, the point of no return

And I follow the stars
No matter how far
And search for the place that I once knew
I tried hard to be like you
I tried to break through
Now I'm on my way to get all over you
Guess I´ll never redeem
My impossible dream
But I had to shut this theater down
All your dogmas have failed
I cannot be saved

The blind are leading
The blind into damnation
Deluded by the factories
Engineering their minds
And they want to force you to rewind,
Obsessed and clueless
Projecting all their anger
Onto the dissenter’s life

I´m drifting through the echoes in my mind
I`m tumbling on the tightrope of my life
They're waiting to see me falling
Watching the sky, me and my tightrope
They pray for my death, my failure
As I pass the edge, the point of no return
This is the point of no return

And I follow the stars
No matter how far and search
For the place that I once knew
I tried hard to be like you
I tried to break through
Now I´m on my way to get all over you
Guess I´ll never redeem
My impossible dream
Mut I had to shut this theater down
All your dogmas have failed
I cannot be saved


Ο δίσκος των Life Artist "Lifelines"
Δισκογραφική επιστροφή για τους Life Artist μετά από τυπικά πέντε, αλλά ουσιαστικά 29 χρόνια! Ο διάδοχος του ντεμπούτου της Γερμανικής prog metal μπάντας ("A Diary of Inner Visions" 1992) τιτλοφορείται "Lifelines" και κυκλοφόρησε προ μηνός.

Οι Life Artist σχηματίσθηκαν το μακρινό 1989 και διατηρήθηκαν ενεργοί για μία πενταετία, μέχρι το 1994. Εκείνη την χρονιά συνέθεσαν και ηχογράφησαν τον δίσκο "Land(e)scapes Within a Building", το οποίο αποτύπωνε την διάθεση του συγκροτήματος να στραφεί σε instrumental δρόμους (χωρίς φωνητικά δηλαδή).

Η εταιρεία τους ήταν αντίθετη και οι Life Artist διαλύθηκαν. Επανήλθαν το 2012 και μετά από ένα demo ("Land(e)scapes Within a Building" 2015, το album που δεν είχε "βγει" στα 90ς) κι ένα single ("Antisocial Networks" 2016) έφθασε η στιγμή για το δεύτερο full length album τους, υπό τον τίτλο "Lifelines". Στον δίσκο συμμετέχει σχεδόν όλη η "παλαιά φρουρά" (συν τον drummer των Poverty's No Crime, Bleeding, Level Fields κλπ)...

Ragnarök Records: «"Lifelines" is a musical roller coaster ride through various musical genres. While the foundation is still varied Progressive Metal, the band dares to venture into other genres such as Death Metal, Djent, classic Progressive Rock, Thrash and even jazzy and classical sounds appear on the album. Ragnarök Records is incredibly proud to be able to present you this remarkable album as the 25th label release. For every Prog Metal fan this album is an essential purchase!»

Bio: «Life Artist is a Progressive Metal band from Germany, possibly well-known from their presence in the early 1990ties. After the success of their first Demo "Faith" (1991) and tour support for Psychotic Waltz and Gypsy Kyss they had an album release in 1992 ("A Diary Of Inner Visions").

Life Artist toured and played with bands like Psychotic Waltz, Mekong Delta, Sieges Even, Deathrow, Gypsy Kyss, Siren, Accu§er, Battlefield or Megace. In 1993 the band wanted to pursue an instrumental direction and recorded the demo tape “Land(e)scapes Within a Building” in 1994.

In 2012, after they recognized the Psychotic Waltz reunion, founding members Ingo Holzhauer and Marco Witte decided to reanimate Life Artist as a studio project. In the following years also the former members Frank Jauernick and Dirk Eckhard joined the project along with Poverty`s No Crime drummer Andreas Tegeler.

In May 2016 Life Artist recorded their first new song called "Antisocial Networks, which finally appeared exclusively on the Metalliance Vol. 2 sampler in early 2017. At the same time, the band published a video for the song on YouTube. The self-recorded album "Lifelines" was completed in May 2021.

The mastering was carried out by Matt Korr in the Red Roof Studio Loftsound in July 2021.»
