HEARTStorm's Prototype Single

http://cdbaby.com/cd/heartstorm3

 

HEARTStorm: Despite All Else... Here We Stand!

 

DESPITE ALL ELSE... HERE WE STAND!  is the prototype work by HEARTStorm, composed and orchestrated for combined Symphonic Metal, Chorus, Wind Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra and the upcoming "Theatro-Metal™" HEARTStorm CD coming soon.

 

If you've ever been kicked a few times while down, or slapped in the face after many turnings of the cheek, you'll relate to this standing-tall shout of defiance and triumph.  

 

Joined by Musicians aged 9-73 from Austria, Germany and around the world, and then joined by a Chorus of Church Bells from Moscow, Paris, London, Rome, New York, Budapest, Berlin and more as the piece rings in its Victorious conclusion, DESPITE ALL ELSE… HERE WE STAND! is HEARTStorm's Manifesto.  It tells where we came from, where we're going and why.  We know where you've been too.  Here is your anthem!  Enjoy!

 

MISSION:  To Create Shared Life-Experiences in Music… and do it in a Ground-breaking, pioneering way that bridges Musical worlds from the Symphonic Orchestra to Progressive Metal and Beyond™.

 

Now… I need for you to listen and BUY this track.  For .99 cents a 9:33 track "ain't bad."  Then I want you to spread the word and get this into YOUR networks of family and friends.  Here are the links:

Do you think we're standing here because of you? 

Hammered to our knees with all your rules? 

 

Thank you for the Heartache, 

Thank you for the Slander, 

Thank you for your Lies and don't forget to Pander! 

Thank you for the kicks when I was on the ground and 

T`hanks for taking me around and around 

 

Despite all else, we've beat your Fear! 

Despite all else we're standing here! 

 

If you want to know the Truth 

I'm grateful to you! 

Beaten to a pulp, all black and blue. 

 

Thank you for the Struggle, 

Thank you for the Hardship, 

Thank you for the nightmares 

Thank you for the Pain! 

 

Thank you for the slaps and turnin' my face red! 

I'll still be around even after I am Dead! 

 

Despite all else, we've beat your Fear! 

Despite all else we're standing here! 

Standing tall, we're stayin' here! 

Despite all else we're Stand-ing here! 

 

Do you think we're standing tall because of you? 

Cowards are the fools 

You use as tools. 

 

Thank you for the Darkness, 

Thank you for the taxes. 

Thank you for your lectures 

That cut us down like axes! 

 

Thank you for the P. C. 

Thank you for the put-downs, 

Thank you for the Lies 

That took us 'round and 'round! 

 

Despite all else we're standing here! 

Despite all else, we have no Fear! 

Standing tall, we're stayin' here! 

Despite all else, we're standing here! 

 

Despite all else, all else! 

 

Do you think we're standing here without duress? 

Living in a world you've made a mess... 

 

Thank you for your small brain

Thank you for your small heart

Thank you for your Wars and for killing all the Art! 

Thank you for the deals you closed behind the door! 

We're still standing here, and we're mopping up the Floor!

 

Despite all else we've beat your Fear! 

Despite all else we're standing here! 

Standing tall, we're stayin' here! 

Despite all else we're standing here! 

Standing here! 

Standing here!
