In attesa del nuovo album degli Alcatrazz “Take No Prisoners” previsto per il 21 maggio 2023, godiamoci il secondo singolo “Battlelines”. La band, con i veterani Jimmy Waldo, Gary Shea e Doogie White alla voce, sembra essere intenzionata a recuperare il tempo perduto con tre album dal 2020 a ora, e questo singolo di solido e quadrato Hard Rock con quel tanto che basta di melodia, alimenta ulteriormente le aspettative.
Battlelines is one of the songs we feel is very representative of the direction the band is at now and where we are going, which is powerful, heavy and melodic metal in that British and European style” enthuses Jimmy Waldo, Alcatrazz’s keyboardist and co-founding member. “In the mid 1980’s Alcatrazz strayed far too much from the direction of our debut album, that first record set the blueprint of what the band was all about and with the recent two albums over the last couple years and now even more so with this new one, “Take No Prisoners”, we are finally establishing the true sound of the band. If fans give this a listen they will hopefully find a lot to like!
We look forward to adding Battlelines to the live set too.” adds bass-player and co-founding member Gary Shea “It’s about the use of radar in warfare from WW2 until the present day; real heads down heavy metal stuff!
