RivetSkull - 'Kings and Queens' (Aerosmith cover)

Long ago in days untold
Were ruled by Lords of greed
Maidens fared with gold
They dared to bare their wombs that bleed

Kings and queens and guillotines
Taking lives denied
Starch and parchment laid the laws
When bishops took the ride
Only to deceive
Oh I know I lived this life afore
Somehow know now truths I must be sure
Tossing turning nightmares
Burning dreams of swords in hand
Sailing ships the Viking spits
The blood of father's land
Only to deceive

Living times of knights and mares
Raising swords for maidens fair
Sneer at death fear only loss of pride

Living other centuries
Deja vu or what you please
Follows true to all who do or die

Screams of no reply they died
Screams of no reply and died
Lordy lordy and then then they died
Lordy no then they died

Live and do or die
Long ago were days I told...Lord they died
Kings and queens and guillotines
Live and no reply they died
Long ago were days I told
Kings and queens and guillotines

Οι RivetSkull μας έρχονται από το Σιάτλ. Δημιουργήθηκαν προ οκταετίας, αλλά μουσικά δείχνουν να ανήκουν στα τέλη 70ς - αρχές 80ς. «If you are looking for the next new sub-sub-genre of heavy metal you won’t find it here» λέει η μπάντα, η οποία μας παρουσιάζεται κάπως έτσι:

«RivetSkull is an echo from the birth of heavy metal. A reflection of a magical moment in time when heavy metal first appeared in the 70’s and 80’s. Evolution of the genre? Not happening here. This is the Jurassic Park of heavy metal, the regrowth of that same DNA that created the beasts of metal that first roamed this planet.

What you will find is heavy, melodic and riff laden music with clear and strong vocals. There is a strong groove with prominent bass lines and tight fitting guitar riffs. The singing will take you back to a day when skill, melody, power and style mattered. All of this brought to you by a dedicated and hard working band of brothers.

Προ διετίας (Φεβρουάριος 2020) κυκλοφόρησε το ντεμπούτο των RivetSkull υπό τον τίτλο "Trail of Souls". Το περασμένο καλοκαίρι (8 Ιουλίου 2022) επανακυκλοφόρησε (η αποκαλούμενη Reworked Reissue έκδοση) υπό τον τίτλο "Trail of Souls: Samsara" με διαφορετικό εξώφυλλο, διαφορετική σειρά τραγουδιών και μία αλλαγή: έλειπε η διασκευή στον ύμνο των Rainbow "Gates of Babylon" και στην θέση μπήκε το τραγούδι "Kings and Queens" (πρόκειται για διασκευή σε Aerosmith, η οποία κυκλοφόρησε και αυτόνομα, ως single, έναν μήνα νωρίτερα).

RivetSkull - 'Kings and Queens'
Οι RivetSkull μας λένε χαρακτηριστικά: «The release two years ago of our debut Trail of Souls was a moment of pride for us. We appreciate the love and support you've shown us since. While working on our new album we came to find that our self-recorded and self-produced release was not the best representation of us and those songs. We wanted to fix that before releasing our more music.»

Στην παρούσα ανάρτηση θα παρακολουθήσουμε το μουσικό βίντεο της Αμερικάνικης μπάντας με την διασκευή της στο τραγούδι των Aerosmith. Το μουσικό κομμάτι το πρωτακούσαμε στον δίσκο των Αμερικανών hard rockers "Draw the Line" (Δεκέμβριος 1977), ενώ "βγήκε" και ως single ένα δίμηνο αργότερα (με το "Critical Mass" στην δεύτερη πλευρά του βινυλίου).

Για το "Kings and Queens" ο Steven Tyler είχε πει (βλ. liner notes στην συλλογή "Pandora's Box") «This one was just about how many people died from holy wars because of their beliefs or non-beliefs. With that one, my brain was back with the knights of the round table».
