WARLORD – `Invaders` 2024 Version veröffentlicht

Die legendären US Metaller WARLORD leben auch nach dem Tod von Gründer William J. Tsamis fort. Zwar ist beileibe nicht alles gelungen auf dem neusten Studioalbum “ Free Spirit Soar” aber die neuen WARLORD haben noch einen weiteren „alten Pfeil“ , sprich alte Aufnahmen, im Köcher, den sie unter dem Titel „From the Ashes to the Archives – The Hot Pursuit Continues“ am 23. August herausbringen werden. Dazu kommen noch weitere rare Tracks und Aufnahmen.

Singer Giles Lavery erklärt dazu:
“What we wanted to do with some of these songs was to revisit some of the songs from the ”Rising Out Of The Ashes” record with this line-up (and using Bill’s guitar and bass tracks) – to give fans an idea of how they are going to sound live this year. Please don’t get me wrong, i think Joacim Cans did a brilliant job on the ”Rising Out Of The Ashes” originals, so these new versions are to be seen very much as a companion to the 2002 versions, rather than any kind of ’replacement’ for them.
However, the mixes this time around are a little heavier and rawer, and to me it sounds more sonically like it’s the 1980s era Warlord, (a sound which really suits the band) ironically the 1980s is when most of these songs on this new collection were written, long before they were recorded for Lordian Guard… „Winds Of Thor“ for example was part of the very first Warlord Demo back in 1982
It may require a little bit of imagination, but it’s almost like, in an alternate reality, IF there had been a follow-up EP to »Deliver Us« and if we can imagine these songs had been recorded and released in 1986 or so, rather than hearing them for the first time as Lordian Guard recordings or later as Warlord in 2002… this could be a look at „what could have been” from a sonic perspective.“

Den ersten Track `Invaders`, im Original als Bonustrack auf dem 2002 erschienenen “Rising Out of the Ashes“ Longplayer könnt ihr hier hören.


We descend from the belt of Orion
Our life-giving star has come to an end
Civilization is dying
We deem to survive, we search for a land
And we’ve explored the galaxies
There is just one place we can live and breathe
So we will overthrow the race of man
His way of woe and hate command

We are Invaders from afar, a dying star
Arise and see, the earth in ashes . . .

We sail through the system Solaris
With thousands of ships in the speed of the light
Hail to our leader we cherish
Our weapons of war prepared for the fight
And we are far beyond his years
Man is just nothing but a beast, atomic spears
So we will make this earth our home, our sphere
This is our destiny so near

Through solemn war, our race it must survive
Yet with remorse, the race of man must die
Through laser forces, with humans we collide
There is no hope for mankind to survive.

We are Invaders from afar, a dying star
Arise and see, the earth in ashes . . .
We are Invaders from afar, a dying star
Arise and see, the earth in ashes . . .
