Shoot to Kill

2018
The Great War
greatWar

2014 was the centenary of the “war to end all wars” and I had the idea to compose some music around the subject. Rather than just release one song or EP in 2014, I decided it would be an interesting concept to release one song a year, from 2014 to 2018 that, combined, would form one (longer) piece of music.

In 2018 Bad Elephant approached me with the idea of releasing the project as a full album and this opportunity has allowed me to re-record and reinterpret the songs I had written since 2014 and also include some additional ones, the end result being The Great War album.
Seven thirty
the whistle blows
Over the top
the order goes

Grab the ladder
take a breath
Over the top
into the jaws of death…

Breathe in
Aim
Breathe out
Shoot to kill

Death and screams all around
end of dreams, more men go down
Devils chariot, metal beast
war machine that needs to feast
From High Wood to the Danger Tree
this is the world that’s left for me…

Breathe in
Aim
Breathe out
Shoot to kill

Yeah
We’re flying
We’re soaring forever
Yeah
We’re wasting
We’re falling together

Yeah
We’re flying
We’re soaring forever
Yeah
We’re wasting
We’re falling together

Shoot to kill
