Blacklist rings in New Year with
"Wake Up" as they continue to work on EP
Blacklist has released a new recording of their original song
"Wake Up." The song is both heavy and melodic and
showcases the heavy riffing and vocal harmonies of the band.
The song opens with an eerie clean guitar riff overlaid with
mournful lead guitar lines, all played by Daniel Parker.
Daniel's voice calls the listener to order with the line
"Hey everybody, it's time to wake up!" as the huge,
chiming chorus is introduced. The harmonized voices of
Jason Parker and Lisa Parker complete the unique hard rock
vocal ensemble. Chris Moore's authoritative drumming and
Jason's pulsating bass line drive the song energetically until
they suddenly disappear at the beginning of a dramatic odd
metered bridge. The bridge is introduced by Daniel's churning
7/8 metered guitar riff. Lisa whales the climactic line of the
bridge, "Don't hold onto yesterday. Like a dream its
snatched away." After one last chorus, Daniel's solo
voice echoes into the distance, a satisfying end to a dramatic
piece. Though moderate in length, "Wake Up" captures
the epic feel of some of the great classics of hard rock,
while still appealing to young fans with modern sensibilities.
