Bakken: With music from phantom island…..

Bakken – This Means War

Bakken is a Northern Irish Classic Heavy Metal Band, and here are the lyrics of the song Cold Blooded Murder from the album This Means War which was released some days ago.

Terminal mass suicide

Like moths to a deadly flame

Nero in the setting sun

Resigned now to this lethal fate

Merciless avarice

Obsessive rapacity

Signing our own death warrant

Sealing our future in flames

The deafening media silence

Towing the party line

Suited pied piper con men

Fraudsters selling flat out lies

The ears that will not listen

The eyes that will not see

A million voices shouting

A truth that you’ll only deny

Screaming to get ourselves out

From the grave we created

As the lid of the coffin is closed

We’re suffocating

Cold Blooded Murder

Deliberately dragging us down, on your race to the bottom

Cold Blooded Murder

Annihilate all in your way, on your ‘mission self-slaughter’

Hate (you tear, you rip, you crush)

For a world (culture of slash and burn)

That you carved (a lesson never learned)

Are you insane craving…

Death (The smoke will turn to flame)

In the sea (A creeping crimson stain)

In the sky (All living die in pain)

In the air you poisoned

Deliberately dragging us down, on your race to the bottom

Annihilate all in your way, on your mission to end us all

The Emerald Island is a phantom island reported to lie between Australia and Antarctica and south of Macquarie Island. It was first sighted by the British sealing ship Emerald, captained by William Elliot, in December 1821, and the name of the supposed island is derived from the name of this ship. It was presumed to be a small (but high and mountainous) island located at 57°30′S 162°12′E.

«Bakken hail from the Emerald Isle and we bring you own brand of thrashy-power metal»! The track We Fight,

The band states, «With our politically charged lyrics, thundering double kick drums and relentless energy, we aim to spread our message of positivity, peace and respect for our all living things. So grab a beer and celebrate the glory of heavy metal with us!».

Bakken quickly amassed a loyal following thanks to the incredibly positive press attention gained worldwide from the debut album Death Of A Hero including being listed by a Metal Rules.com reviewer as ‘Best New Band’ for 2012. The band’s tight and energetic live performances got them established on the live circuit ultimately headlining their own shows, supporting bands such as Hell, Doug Aldrich and Tim Ripper Owens and touring in Holland with fellow classic metallers Lord Volture in 2015. The track Two-Edged Blades,

With a fresh new line-up boosted by Frank Levi’s soaring power metal style vocals, Shaun Nelson’s (Attica Rage/Ironheart) blistering solos and Thomas Alford’s (Tim Ripper Owens/Sandstone) progressive bass lines, BAKKEN ARE BAKK with a vengeance in 2020 with their epic new full length album This Means War, which Metal Gods TV describe as «a thumping journey of intense heavy metal…..a forty minute thunderstorm of epic proportions 9/10».

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6691 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
