Dokken - 'Fugitive' (official music video)

Dokken - 'Heaven Comes Down'
Δισκογραφική επιστροφή για τους Dokken μετά από μία... ενδεκάδα έτη (αν δεν συνυπολογίσουμε την συλλογή "The Lost Songs: 1978-1981" και τα live albums "Return to the East Live", "The Undying Light").

Ο διάδοχος του δίσκου "Broken Bones" (2012) και 15ο συνολικά full length album των Αμερικανών hard rockers / melodic metallers τιτλοφορείται "Heaven Comes Down" και αναμένεται στα τελειώματα του δεύτερου φθινοπωρινού μήνα. Ο Don Dokken μας λέει σχετικά:

«The long anticipated new Dokken album, ‘Heaven Comes Down’, is finally done and the first single is titled ‘Fugitive’! The inspiration for the lyrics came from what seems to me to be an uncertain world these days.

It’s an up-tempo Rokker as are many on the album. I don't know what the future holds for our world, so I decided to take a step back and watch it all unfold... Yes, I guess I've become like many these days a fugitive from life. Hence the title!

The song rocks and the lyrics are self-explanatory like many songs I've written, it came to me late at night. Inspiration and pure stream of consciousness have always been the best formula for me when composing. It has that classic Dokken sound... A great song to blast when driving down the highway.»

Δελτίο τύπου: «You can feel that heat off the Sunset Strip and see that hair in the wind as Dokken bring their timeless convertible Ferrari rock ‘n’ roll power to the table with Heaven Comes Down, an unapologetic celebration of everything Dokken do best.

You want to rock? Sink your teeth into “Fugitive”, which rides some shimmering guitar work courtesy of Jon Levin, Don Dokken imploring that “I’m a fugitive from life”, and if you want ballads, head on over to “I’ll Never Give Up”, hanging on that Coliseum chorus, Levin laying down a landmark solo.

The pattern of Heaven Comes Down never falters in delivering the goods on both sides of the fence. “Just Like A Rose” brings the Pacific Coast Highway into vision with its smooth, effortlessly-driven gears, and “Saving Grace” carries a mystical malevolence.

But it is closer “Santa Fe” which is perhaps the most revealing, spare yet glorious moment, Don Dokken opening up with what amounts to a ‘life-moment biography’, a spartan acoustic arrangement allowing the rich yet road-driven vocals to frame what might well prove to be the defining moment of Dokken’s career.

Mixed by Kevin Shirley (Aerosmith, Iron Maiden, Joe Bonamassa) and produced by Bill Palmer and Don Dokken, fans will love it, neutrals will be wonderfully surprised by some of the ingredients within Heaven Comes Down.»
