Alcatrazz - 'Gates Of Destiny' (official audio)

In a lucid dream when i was still a child
I rode a sailing ship winds strong and wild
Tossed upon the storm and capsized on the shore
Why I felt no fear I'll never know

And then I rose from bed
I saw the holy thread
I'd been through the worst
And lived to see another day

Spirit take your flight
Through the blackest night
Turn defeat to victory
Sail the midnight ship
Through the wilderness
Only one had holds the key
To the Gates of Destiny

Stranger than the night hotter than the fire
Things we cannot touch can breed desire
There's no turning back life is moving on
Conscience finds its way through gates of dawn

And that's a lonely street
And I still refuse to crawl
Live your freedom now
When you're young,
When you're enough to know

The Gates of Destiny are calling my name

Alcatrazz - 'Take No Prisoners'
Το μακρινό 1983 ο (πρώην τραγουδιστής των Rainbow και Michael Schenker Group) Graham Bonnet δημιούργησε στο Los Angeles τους Alcatrazz, οι οποίοι συνεχίζουν (με... μεγάλα διαλείμματα) μέχρι τις ημέρες μας. Η πιο πρόσφατη επανένωσή τους έγινε το 2019 με δισκογραφικό αποτέλεσμα το (πολύ καλό) album "Born Innocent".

Τον Δεκέμβρη του 2020 ο δημιουργός της μπάντας (Graham Bonnet) έμεινε εκτός Alcatrazz (με αποτέλεσμα να σχηματίσει τους Graham Bonnet’s Alcatrazz με τον Jeff Loomis στην κιθάρα) με τα υπόλοιπα μέλη να τον αντικαθιστούν με τον Doogie White (βλ. Rainbow, Yngwie Malmsteen, Michael Schenker Group, Tank, Cornerstone κλπ). Το αποτέλεσμα της συνεργασίας (δίσκος) το ακούσαμε πρόπερσι με το full length album "V", το οποίο -προ ημερών- απέκτησε... διάδοχο! "Take No Prisoners" ο τίτλος.

Δελτίο τύπου: «Alcatrazz are determined to make up for lost time, roaring forwards at warp factor 10 to deliver Take No Prisoners, their sixth studio album and the third in three years.

Comprising of ten cracking, charismatic tracks, with each containing the unique fusion of classic American rock with the full grain hard-rocking attitude of British metal, Take No Prisoners sees Alcatrazz energetically soaring and exploring melodic progression with road-warrior riffs.

Lead single and video “Don’t Get Mad... Get Even” sees the band collaborating with the legendary Girlschool in a full-force, head-banging fist-pumper, while “Little Viper” rides a scything guitar into a thunderous, Dio-like assault.

The band also show their calmer, more expansive side with the epic “Strangers”, but when an album finishes at the burn point of “Bring On The Rawk”, there can be no question that Alcatrazz’s collective boot is repeatedly kicking serious ass!!!

Comprised of Doogie White (vocals), Joe Stump (guitars), Jimmy Waldo (keyboards), Gary Shea (bass) and Larry Paterson (drums), and with Giles Lavery and Waldo producing, Take No Prisoners is a loudly, and proudly classic rock album which draws on the Alcatrazz traditions of technically excellent screaming guitars, thunderous rhythm and the sort of vocals and overall aura that evoke prime Dio and Rainbow.

And, of course, a primed and fully-tuned up Alcatrazz, whose career is fast taking on Benjamin Button proportions. The Take No Prisoners tour should be a lot of fun!»
