Eyes Ablaze



 Genre: Heavy Metal

Get Flash to see this player.

In my opinion this is some of my better work. Albeit, I have a long way to go in all aspects of song writing, musicianship and production capabilities but this song makes me feel I have come a long way as well.

I may have taken some liberty in vocal layering but there are bands in this genre who do similar things.

I look back at the songs I mixed and mastered five years ago and I see how little I knew. I'm sure that five years from now I'll listen to this mix and think the same thing.

One last thing. My favorite guitarist and probably biggest influence by far is Ritchie Blackmore. Sometimes if you listen really carefully you can hear the influence. LOL.

Have a great day.

Eyes Ablaze

Staring into the desert sky
Stretching out to the unknown
Reaching out to touch the void
Barren fields to be sown

Eyes ablaze with visions of life
Dry and parched in desert strife
Travelling in the heat of the day
And hiding from the cold of the night

We see blue skies
We see eyes ablaze
We see the black of night
We see the light of days

Cutting through unruly heat
Sweat pouring from the brow
Mind wandering out to the sea
Body out pushing the plow

Eyes ablaze with growing hope
Glazed with the gel of life
Gripping to the life giving rope
Killing the enemy strife

We see blue skies
We see eyes ablaze
We see the black of night
We see the light of days

Spot on, Michael. One of your best. Seems very complete with all elements in place but it is still an articulate, warm mix. Fine work. Thanks.
