Screamer - 'The Traveler' (official music video)

I've been known as the traveler
Everywhere I go
Wherever there's place for the lonely
I'll be there, you know

As a bearer of all news
I take the good with the bad
Whatever the payment might
Be can decide what you'll have

Been such a long time
Since I stepped out the door
Can hardly remember
The way back home no more

It's all the same though
I am destined to roam
The road was always meant to be my home

Oh oh oh
I'll always be the lonely traveler
On the road again

Travel all the land
Always on this endless journey
Please understand, it is all for you

I bring a cure for the lonely
With every ounce of me
Will I ever get back what
I give, we'll see

I offer everything
and keep nothing for myself
I give you all I've got each time

Oh oh oh
I'll always be the lonely traveler
On the road again

Travel all the land
Always on this endless journey
Please understand, it is all for you

[Solo: Jon Morheim]

Oh oh oh
I'll always be the lonely traveler
On the road again

Travel all the land
Always on this endless journey
Please understand, it is all for you

I'll always be the lonely traveler
All alone

Screamer - 'Kingmaker'
Υπάρχουν (ή υπήρξαν) τουλάχιστον τέσσερις μπάντες που φέρουν το όνομα Screamer. Αυτοί που μας ενδιαφέρουν στην παρούσα ανάρτηση μας έρχονται από την Σουηδία, δημιουργήθηκαν πριν από δεκατρία (13) έτη και μας παρουσιάζονται κάπως έτσι:

Forged in steel in the dark woods of rural Sweden, Screamer flies their banner high! With their feet firmly planted in the deep traditions of Heavy Metal, Screamer never lose sight of what's really important; good tunes, good brew and good times!

'Cause with Screamer every night is Friday night and every Friday night deserves to be a party! As ruthless Swedish peasants, the band grew up on meat and potatoes on their plates, and that's what's blazing out of your speakers when putting on any of the Screamer albums.

That's why Screamer never strays far from the proven sound of roaring guitars and pounding drums that works equally well in the war pit in front of stage as when blasting through your stereo.

In their music you can hear the classic foundations laid down by the hard rocking heroes of old. With a combination of straight - forward choruses of the likes of Dio, guitar works in the style of 'Maiden or 'Lizzy on speed and the pounding beat of Judas Priest, Screamer has carved out their very own essence of heavy metal that stands the test of time.

Έχουν κυκλοφορήσει τέσσερις "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους, ένα live album, ένα demo και μπόλικα singles. Το νέο τους πόνημα τιτλοφορείται "Kingmaker" και αναμένεται στην αυγή του νέου έτους. Στην παρούσα ανάρτηση θα παρακολουθήσουμε το μουσικό βίντεο του τραγουδιού "The Traveler"...

Δελτίο τύπου: It’s their enthusiasm, the physically tangible intensity of their songs and their irrepressible drive that has always set Screamer apart from other acts. The Swedish band surrounding vocalist Andreas Wikström benefits no end from the group’s amazing energy in combination with the musicians’ inspiring and diverse songwriting.

This rewarding mix has already produced four studio albums and one live recording since 2011. Screamer’s latest offering ‘Kingmaker’ is scheduled for release on 13 January 2023. As its predecessors, ‘Kingmaker’ sparkles with a wealth of songs in the catchment area of classic heavy metal, the kind that has been an integral part of our lives since the early 1980s.

At the same time, Screamer skinsman Henrik Petersson promises his band’s most mature and focused album yet, saying: “‘Kingmaker’ had us refine our signature style even more and bring out the essence of our strongest fortes.” Screamer came together in Ljungby in 2009, a small town between Malmö and Gothenburg.

Their previous studio albums, ‘Adrenaline Distractions’ (2011), ‘Phoenix’ (2013) ‘Hell Machine’ (2017) and ‘Highway Of Heroes’ (2019), saw the five-piece deliver straightforward statements featuring dynamic riffs, tasteful twin guitars, punchy grooves and deeply melodic vocals.

Screamer have played well over three hundred concerts, including acclaimed shows at renowned festivals such as Headbangers Open Air, Rock Hard Open Air, Summer Breeze, Bang Your Head and Muskelrock.

A representative testament to the quintet’s enthusiasm for playing live saw the light of day in January 2021: The songs on their ‘Live Sacrifice’ live album were cut during their European tour between autumn 2019 and spring 2020, with ‘Kingmaker’ now seamlessly picking up where its predecessors left off.

New songs such as ‘Renegade’, ‘Chasing The Rainbow’ and ‘Hellfire’ are typical Screamer numbers. Says Petersson: “In addition, they show what we are about this time, musically as well as in terms of content. Normally our lyrics are about life on tour, the joys of heavy metal and the life that goes with it.

However, the unusual, melancholy ‘The Traveler’ is not your typical Screamer fare. “‘Kingmaker’ also features socio-critical approaches, for example on ‘Ashes And Fire’, and fantasy influences on ‘Sounds Of The Night’, which you might refer to as little adventure stories,” adds vocalist Andreas Wikström.

Wikström is not only Screamer’s vocalist, but also the band’s main lyricist, with a sure instinct for fantastic choruses. Along with longstanding members, guitarist Dejan Rosić, described by his colleagues as a “riff machine and Bosnian Santana”, and bassist Fredrik Svensson Carlström(“a real animal on stage!”) there’s drummer Henrik Petersson, who not only started the band, but is also its manager and organisational backbone.

Guitarist Jon Morheim has only recently joined the Screamer fold and is a true riff virtuoso whose great technical skill has been instrumental in propelling Screamer to the next musical level. These five have combined their talent, experience and undiminished driving ambition and are set to unleash ‘Kingmaker’, the strongest album of their career to date.
