The Silent Rage - 'Black Monday' (ft. Bob Katsionis)

How are we going to get through this tragedy
How many tears for humanity
How many innocent people should die
Circle of life, our endless stain

Into this burning soil we gathered our shivers
Trembling with pain, without hope
Nothing will ever heal this misfortune
Shadows lay down in this dark beyond

Oh, Lord, give us mercy, give us strength
To stand on our feet, make us brave and strong
For all those fallen, for all those that are gone
We will pray, we will entreat

Can you hear our calling
Can you hear our mourning
This threnody to desolation rises
Our grief, a dance for the descended

Black Monday, the darkest day of our lives
Our mouth is shut, futile are the words
The hourglass is broken, time stops there
Nothing can heal the rage inside

Oh, Lord, give us mercy, give us strength
To stand on our feet, make us brave and strong
For all those fallen, for all those that are gone
We will pray, we will entreat

The freezing wind has brought us tears
A heavy rain to ease the pain
Our hallowed ground is ash and dust
Beloved friends, they will never come back

Oh, Lord, give us mercy, give us strength
To stand on our feet, make us brave and strong
For all those fallen, for all those that are gone
We will pray, we will entreat

The Silent Rage - 'Nuances of Life'
Δισκογραφική επιστροφή για τους The Silent Rage μετά από επτά χρόνια. Ο διάδοχος του album "The Deadliest Scourge" και δεύτερος "ολοκληρωμένος" δίσκος των Αθηναίων power metallers φέρει τον τίτλο "Nuances of Life" και κυκλοφόρησε προ διμήνου.

Οι The Silent Rage δημιουργήθηκαν πριν από 17 έτη, αρέσκονται σε (μελωδικά) power metal μουσικά μονοπάτια και έχουν κυκλοφορήσει δύο full length albums, τρία demos, πέντε singles συν ένα split (μαζί με τους Secret Illusion).

Παρακολουθούμε το lyric video του τραγουδιού "Black Monday", στο οποίο συμμετέχει και ο Μπάμπης Κατσιώνης. Οι στίχοι αναφέρονται στην προ πενταετίας φονική πυρκαγιά στο Μάτι, με την μπάντα να μας λέει σχετικά:

Nikos Siglidis: «It is by far the most personal track I ever wrote as a lyricist. Five years ago, on July 23rd of 2018 during the summer wildfires in Mati, Attica, Greece 103 people lost their lives and this track is dedicated in loving memory of them.

This was one of the biggest disasters that I ever experienced in my life so far and it really affected me as a person and as a human being. You never know what’s going to happen the very next moment, so to me you have to live it like it’s going to be the very last one.

I am really thankful that in this track Nikos Sarbanis and Michalis Rinakakis delivered such beautiful melodies that helped embrace my vision about it. It is a way that we mourn together with those families and pay the ultimate tribute to the lost ones.

It’s also the track that Bob Katsionis (Stray Gods, ex-Firewind) is taking part in by performing his characteristic performance on keyboards, for which I can’t be thankful enough, since it has given a special tone in the whole track.

Of course, one major element is the singing of Michalis in this track, who really got himself into the whole atmosphere and gave a proper feeling of the mourn the song describes.

Another fact is that when time came to record my solo part, I was really touched by the passing of a person that had died a few weeks earlier and had a huge impact in my life.

Performing my solo part in this song was meant to be another small tribute to a guitar player and a band that I really miss. This man was Miika Tenkula (RIP 1974-2009) and his band was Sentenced.»

Nikos Sarbanis: «This song was one of the most emotional songs that I had to compose the music for. Nikos Siglidis was very concerned about this tragic fire accident and he decided to make a dedicated song.

Later, he told me to write some music for these lyrics, and immediately took the guitar and started composing. By the way, this was a very emotional moment for me as well, as I was about to lose my hometown’s house because of a devastating fire accident in 2015.

Even Though I was very furious about these accidents (which were human-made accidents in order to make profit from new buildings, wind turbines etc), I had to write tones for a ballad.

About the solo, I wrote a Pink Floyd style crunchy - mellow solo. It is a huge inspiration for me and I wanted not to try to make something impressive, in terms of technique, but something more melodic and atmospheric.»
