"Warpath" Play by Play
War Cry- is a hard hitting battle cry packed with great drumming and some memorable guitar lines. My goal was to write an epic tune like Led Zeppelin's "Kasmir." Of course, I came nowhere near my goal, but I am very happy with "War Cry;" it has replaced, "Fear In Me" as my favorite Fantazzmo tune.
"War Cry" was the first song written for the Ep. I came up with the original idea in 2011 and worked on it little by little until we finally put it to wax. When discussing the approach to drum maniac, "Randy Cooke" I told him this tune is my Kasmir and one or two takes later, we had it!
I Want You- has a heavy guitar riff that is a tribute to Black Sabbath. I love the riff on this track! This is a more stripped down tune, just bare bones rock and it sounds huge! I wanted to do something different with the vocals, kind of like Muse's "Supermagic Black Hole." So I did a falsetto on the verses. It took me a little while to get to, but I am happy with it now.
Get Your Kicks Intro- Yes, this is Jim Morrison, one of the most Kick Ass frontmen of all time!
Get Your Kicks- I was just hanging out listening to the Doors and I heard this and was immediately inspired to write this tune. This is my tribute to Led Zeppelin's "Rock N' Roll," with a little Elvis thrown in for fun.
Lil Devil Stare- Although I put this on the "Child of the Sun" Ep, "Lil Devil" was intended to be released on "Warpath" from the very begining. This is a fun song & definitely the easiest track to listen to and probably the most commercially appealing song on the Ep. This gets a great response everytime at live shows, that opening riff & beat are just infectious.
Child of the Sun- I wrote all the music for this tune in 2001. I decided to rewrite the lyrics and new it was the perfect finale for "Warpath." This song has a big Godsmack inspired guitar riff and I really like the breakdown and build up in the middle section. This is definitely one of my favorite Fantazzmo tunes.
"Get Your Kicks" this weekend!!!
