Abraxas
info en metal-archives: http://www.metal-archives.com/band.php?id=762


Genre: Progressive/Power Metal
Origin: Germany (Tübingen)

Line-Up:
Vocals - Chris Klauke (ex-Mania (Ger))
Guitars - Stephan Rohner
Guitars - Oliver Mindner
Bass - Jan Müller
Drums - Heiko Burst
Keyboards - Andreas Hittinger

Discography:
1993 - The Liason / 1997 - Tomorrow's World

La otra vez puse a los alemanes Mania, y ahora le tocaba el turno a Abraxas, el otro grupo de Chris Klauke. Abraxas mezcla muy bien un metal alemán con buenas melodías con el metal progresivo, es decir, cambios de ritmo extraños, jugar con los tiempos, etc

En la discografía tenemos el The Liaison y el Tomorrow's World, que son lo mismo pero el primero salió en el 93 solo en japón, y más tarde fue remasterizado con otro título y otra portada para el resto del mundo, incluyendo bonus tracks para Europa (puse unos links de descarga no hace mucho)

El disco está muy bien de principio a fin, Gates To Eden, Dreamer's Island, Tomorrow's World, Cry of the Nature, Faded Photographs, Into the Light...

Pongo Gates To Eden, que no es ni la más directa (Cry of the Nature), ni la más progresiva (Dream Dealer quizás)



Letra / Lyrics:

[Verse]
Outside the rain is falling
The moon stands pale and cold
Somewhere the clock strikes midnight
Six ours left to go

Justice says I'm guilty
but is this really true?
Governor shows no mercy
Now the chair waits for me, uh

[Bridge]
I got a dream a long time ago
Visions of my life
Terrible deeds I saw in that night
violence crime and lies!

[Chorus]
There are signs in the sky
tomorrow the day I must die
Lord stand by me on my last way!
The circle is closed and the visions turned to truth
Now I'm on my way to the gates of Eden

[Verse]
Sometimes I feel anger
about my own life
I wouldn't see the danger
in those days

Steps outside the celldoor
coming close to me
Sunbeams of the rising dawn
makes me fear!

[Bridge]
I got a dream a long time ago
Visions of my life
Terrible deeds I saw in that night
violence crime and lies!

[Bridge 2]
Cold sweat is flowing slowly down on my back
The sands of times are running there's no turning back
The priest reads the last writes guardian stands beside
My blood runs faster now it's time to die!

[Solos]

[Bridge 3]
Now I'm leavin' up to another world
Maybe a better place to live maybe to sleep

[Bridge 4]
Tears rollin' down on my cheeks as my life drifts before me
I'm afraid of the coming but no one can hear my silent cries

[Bridge 5]
Goodbye Mama goodbye my love
Goodbye to the rest of all
The time is right for the last farewell

Stop from cryin' hide your tears
I'm not worth for all those fears
Send me a smile before I walk away

[Bridge 6]
My heart is drummin' as they lead me to the chair
The smilin' face of death - I see everywhere
Hangman comes closer
Last cigarette I can smoke
Than he will take the switch to turn my life off

[Bridge]
I got a dream a long time ago
Visions of my life
Terrible deeds I saw in that night
violence crime and lies!

[Chorus]
There's a sign in the sky now it's the hour to die
Lord stand by me on my last way!
The circle is closed and the visions turned to truth
Ready to pass the gates of Eden
