Heir Apparent - 'Tear Down the Walls' (Remastered)

They dwell in a palace of ivory and gold
In beauty and comfort, a fortune untolled
Yet, out in the courtyard injustice prevails
They've turned their backs on what Lordship entails

They squander their riches on oceans of wine
The masses are starving while ministers dine
The Bringers of Sorrow, the Masters of Pain
Rise up in anger, let sweet vengeance reign!

Tear down the walls - tear down the walls

A code of corruption, a throne of despair
A common affliction the townspeople share
Depriving the hungry and robbing the poor
Slaves to a system they loathe and deplore

A bounty of torment, abuse of command
The wicked are crippling this misgoverned land
The innocent perish, the cruel remain
Take up your sabres, let sweet vengeance reign!

Tear down the walls - tear down the walls
Tear down the walls - tear 'em down!

The peasants are storming this palace of gold
By evil repressors, no longer controlled
The banner of justice unfurled overhead
The victors rejoicing, the conquered lie dead

Yet few of them know what the future will bring
Another unjust and unmerciful King
The nature of Monarchs is always the same
Soon time will come to let sweet vengeance reign!

Tear down the walls...


Ο δίσκος των Heir Apparent 'Graceful Inheritance'
Έχω εκφραστεί πολλάκις (ακόμη και στον Terry Gorle μέσα από την φόρμα σχολίων του Metal Daze) για το μεγαλείο του δίσκου "Graceful Inheritance", τον οποίο θεωρώ ως το καλύτερο heavy metal album που έχω ακούσει στις τρεισήμισι (και πλέον) δεκαετίες που ακούω αυτή την (ευλογημένη) μουσική).

Το "μυθικό" ντεμπούτο των Heir Apparent κυκλοφόρησε τον Ιανουάριο του 1986. Τον επόμενο μήνα (21 Ιανουαρίου 2022) ο δίσκος θα επανακυκλοφορήσει (τόσο σε cd όσο και σε βινύλιο) από την Hammerheart Records. Επιπλέον τραγούδια δεν θα υπάρχουν (πέραν των δεκατριών της αρχικής έκδοσης)...

Δελτίο τύπου: «This is how Power Metal should be done! 1986’s “Graceful Inheritance” remastered leaves nothing to be desired! Heir Apparent is one of these bands that released a few records and then stopped with leaving a gem behind.

This one is the masterwork that every power metal fan should have listened to. One of the strengths of “Graceful Inheritance” is the production; very well balanced, with a clearly audible bass, which is very important because it makes the sound very characteristic.

Then, the musicianship, is mostly top-notch; with Iron Maiden-like solos all around, bass lines that would put Steve Harris to shame and a quite unique vocal work by Terry Gorle.

The song writing is varied; with mid-paced, up-tempo and speed metal songs, and so is the atmosphere; with a mostly dramatic/tragic environment in the songs, but also tense moments where you can basically feel the danger coming, showing versatility both in performance and song writing.

In addition, “Graceful Inheritance” is extremely catchy, with sing-along choruses, and will get you from the very beginning. Every song in this album is simply excellent. This is a must for power metal fans that are into Iron Maiden and Queensryche’s “The Warning”.»
