Two years after the release of Bride‘s final album “Incorruptible” Dale Thompson (known as vocalist for Bride from 1983–2013) is back in the music scene with his new band/project The World Will Burn that he started together with Alan Zaring. You can listen to the first song ‘Absolute Power’ now (link below), which appears on their debut album “Severity” that comes out this christmas.
Recently Dale says: ‘The music is slammin’ – my vocals are the heaviest I have ever recorded with slaughtered screams, heavy airy backgrounds and guttural intentions that will raise the hair on the back of your neck. Yeah I am very happy and positive that if you are a fan of “the heavy” you are going to dig this crunchy roll of slambastic groove and wonderstruck.’
‘We plan on saying it. We may not become the most populair band on the planet but we will be remembered and our message heard. The band has nothing to do with religion.’
The World Will Burn has carefully crafted their CD “Severity”, to be more than just a collection of songs. From the very beginning, The World Will Burn has been focused on creating an emotional musical experience for the listener.
The World Will Burn is a unique worldwide collaboration between Dale Thompson and Alan Zaring. Dale, who lives in New Zealand, and Alan, who lives in the United States, have been working together remotely to create music that transcends culture, language, and genres. The World Will Burn is focused on emotion and passion instead of commercial pressure. Their soon to be released CD promises to change the way you look at hard rock music. New, fresh sounds combined with classic influences merged with thoughtful lyrics. Power merged with grace. Explosiveness married to innocence. Rage fused with compassion.
