Damnation Plan Posts Lyric Video

Finnish outfit Damnation Plan has released a lyric video for the title track "The Wakening" to celebrate the first anniversary of the album's release via Coroner Records.

Jarkko Lunnas (drums) commented: "There was a lot of effort put to the lyrics of the album, and these days when not many gets the physical album anymore and reads the lyrics from the booklet, we decided to put them up front in form of a music video.

"About the lyrics of the song and the album... A lot of it deals with that people in general don't seem to care what happens in the world until it's their own life on the line and when the shit has already hit the fan. The whole current economic system is based on growth, everybody wants more, yet the population growth keeps on increasing, putting an exponentially growing debt on resources which are already on minus. No one reacts to the big picture.

"The scenario is that people while get their final wakening the moment when it's already too late, and it is inevitable with the current phase. One of the problems is that politicians don't think long term. What only matters is do they get elected for their next season. Despite all the information and evidence available to everybody we seem to allow history to repeat itself and we learn nothing." More...

Damnation Plan Posts Schwarzenegger Theme Songs

Finnish act Damnation Plan has covered two Arnold Schwarzenegger movie themes, "Judgement Day" (Terminator theme) and "The Butcher Of Bakersfield" (The Running Man theme).

You can download MP3 files of the tracks over at the band's Facebook profile here. Drummer/song writer Jarkko Lunnas comments:

"The Terminator theme idea came up when roughly 5 years ago during Finnish Labour's Day celebration we ended up jamming the theme at our rehearsal room and recorded it. After that our friend Jaakko Jernberg suggested we should record it properly and release it! Well, during 'The Wakening' sessions we did.

"After the Terminator version, we figured maybe we should do also a more profound tribute song for another Arnold movie, 'The Running Man.' It's one of those classic movies you grew up with and of which you remember all the actors' one-liners! The movie's great theme music by Harold Faltermayer along the visual and sci-fi side of it have always been inspirational. Considering that the original story (by Stephen King) and the movie were made in the 80s, its topic is actually quite current today, about the uprising reality-TV culture and the increasingly controlled and monitored society."
