Gatekeeper - 'Twisted Towers' (official lyric video)

Behold absolute power
Reigning from my twisted towers
As the Wind howls through bastions tall
I stand upon them over all you
Weaklings as you cower
Beneath my yoke of power
You shall toil
Day and night to raise
These towers higher
Glory to your

King above you tears and blood are your due
An evil writhes inside my mind
Constricting walls that crush and bind

Your wives, your bairns are sworn
To me, your lord highborn
I can hear the madness calling me

In my mind
The lust for power cries
It's screaming out to me right through the darkness
Madness crawls
Over castle walls
I stand upon the ramparts of
My twisted towers tall

I lay claim to all you know
And I shall reap what
You hath sewn

Cruelty has taken me
Within its grasp
No turning back

I'm wallowing within this keep
A spirit lost in darkness deep

Tendrils of baleful will
Escape my soul
To breach the sill

To taint the very stones
That loom above my throne

Blasted black
Now the towers crack
They're Shifting shape
They wind and snake

Into forms unknown
Mocking flesh and bone

The crenellations are weeping crimson tears
As walls tumble down

Paranoia is clawing within me
Tearing down every stone that surrounds me
They're crashing down

In my mind
The lust for power cries
It's screaming out to me right through the darkness
Madness crawls
Over castle walls
I crumble with the ruins as the
twisted towers fall

Standing tall
Freedom calls
Tyranny is vanquished as the
Twisted towers fall

Standing tall
Freedom calls
Revel in the glory as the
Twisted towers fall

I see you, I hear you, crying out
For freedom, for mercy, masses shout
Defying, Denying, Twisted towers fall

Gatekeeper - 'From Western Shores'
Δισκογραφική επιστροφή μετά από τέσσερα (τυπικά τρία αν συνυπολογίσουμε και το ep "Grey Maiden") χρόνια για τους Gatekeeper. Ο διάδοχος του album "East of Sun" και δεύτερος "ολοκληρωμένος" δίσκος των Καναδών metallers τιτλοφορείται "From Western Shores" και έχει προγραμματισθεί να κυκλοφορήσει στα τέλη του πρώτου ανοιξιάτικου μήνα. Είναι το πρώτο album της επικής μπάντας με τον Tyler Anderson στα φωνητικά. Το έδαφος προετοιμάζει το lyric video του τραγουδιού "Twisted Towers", για το οποίο οι Gatekeeper μας λένε:

«Gatekeeper rides into the fray with another single from their upcoming album. “Twisted Towers” is a blade across the throat of would-be tyrants and miserable despots. Let the towers crumble to ruin and the people rise!

This song has become a staple in our live set recently and it is probably the most fun and catchy song we've ever written. We hope it becomes your personal anthem as you defy the power structures holding you back.

Tell your petty supervisor to go fuck themselves, your cop-calling neighbour to kick rocks and your local reactionary political candidate to burn in hell.»
