We feel very honored to bring you the exclusive world premiere of a brand new song of The World Will Burn’s upcoming debut album “Severity”. The World Will Burn is the new band of Dale Thompson which he started together with Alan Zaring.
The new song ‘Why’ can be streamed in the soundcloud player below. Be sure to leave us a comment with your thoughts! (sidenote: this stream is available temporary, till Saturday [26-12] midnight, 00:00 CET).
Alan Zaring (guitars) says: “These songs wrote themselves. Dale and I were merely the tools. We realized early on in the process that we would be making music that is totally different than other heavy music being marketed today. It seems like so much of the metal these days sounds alike and follows a “formula” for success. We hope that these songs will be difficult to classify as “sounds like ________”. We wanted to be heavy but completely different and I think we were successful. I hope you like it!”
“What are the songs about? I think the beauty of Dale’s lyrics are fact that each person finds a personal connection to his songs and believes they are certain of its meaning. His words are sometimes vague but hit home with each listener on such a personal level that I hesitate to ruin it for anyone by telling them that the song is about something else completely. Does that make sense to you? I hope so!”
“What I can do is tell you that the entire CD is about the journey…not the destination. Going forth into the unknown and learning lessons. I will send you the lyrics of each song. Perhaps they will speak to you on a personal level. That is what we are shooting for.”
“This CD will have about 13 songs. The track list is still in the works but below is what we are expecting”
