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.
We were young
Bored
Broken
Tired and ignored
A disease
Unspoken

In the end
All we were
What we wanted
A place to belong

War Machine
Keep the wheels on turning
War Machine
Keep the bodies burning

Screams of pain
Soaked in red rain
Roll over broken bones

Stuck in the mud
In the piss and the blood
Kings of unholy thrones

War Machine
Keep the wheels on turning
War Machine
Keep the bodies burning

And remember the days
And remember the damned
And remember the time when we broke it all
And remember
Create
Then take a seat again
