Alter Bridge – Watch Over You

It’s here! It’s here! As promised, the new Alter Bridge video for “Watch Over You” on their album “Blackbird“. The video was released September 13th and will premiere here in the blogosphere. The video is very well made. It’s nothing fancy just Miles Kennedy, Mark Tremonti, and the rest of the guys playing the song. Be sure to check out the sunset at the end. First the lyrics in case you want to sing along, then the video to follow.

Leaves are on the ground
Fall has come
Blue skies turning grey
Like my love

I tried to carry you
And make you whole
But it was never enough
I must go

[Chorus:]
Who is gonna save you
When I’m gone?
And who’ll watch over you
When I’m gone?

You say you care for me
But hide it well
How can you love someone
And not yourself?

[Chorus]

And when I’m gone
Who will break your fall?
Who will you blame?

I can’t go on
And let you lose it all
It’s more than I can take
Who’ll ease your pain?
Ease your pain

[Chorus:]
Who is gonna save you
When I’m gone?
Who’ll watch over you?
Who will give you strength
When you’re not strong?
Who’ll watch over you
When I’ve gone away?

Snow is on the ground
Winters come
You long to hear my voice
But I’m long gone

 
 

Demon Hunter – Storm the Gates of Hell

The very first time I heard this band was through their video for “Infected” on TVU the Christian rock 24 hour music video channel. I had heard other “screamo” bands before but Demon Hunter was different. Their genre of music is actually called Metalcore which is a hybrid of Metal and Hardcore or Screamo. At first glance Demon Hunter sound like other Metalcore bands with the harsh screaming vocals, thrashing guitars, and heavy pounding drums. But Demon Hunter created has created a mix of melodic choruses with almost ballad like song structure and hardcore guttural scream vocals. Demon Hunter is designated as a Christian Heavy Metal band, but unlike Petra and Stryper of old, some would say this band is scarier. With their symbolic demon skull with bullet hole album covers, to their hardcore metal sound and gutteral screams they have staved off the mainstream metal label. The band was formed by brothers Don and Ryan Clark in Seattle, Washington and release their first album “Demon Hunter” in October of 2002. The current lineup is Ryan Clark on vocals, Don Clark on rhythm guitar, Jon Dunn on bass guitar, Timothy “Yodi” Watts on drums, and Ethan Luck on lead guitar, and backing vocals. Luck is a very busy musician because he is also currently playing drums for the Christian rock band Relient K. Luck was also a member of the ska band The O.C. Supertones.
