Bucky Continuing on the path of metallic righteousness, Redscale have unleashed a beast of hairy riffs mauling with melodic tempo, heartthrob vocal tones, and clawing with massive hook. These Germans have eclipsed the Country’s knack for infectious hard rock swagger with another example of the signature German roar.

Mike Redscale deliver large in tone and tonnage, bearing enough resonant mass to sate beast king and listener alike. Colosseum-sized chordage, hippodrome-heavin' hooks and ziggurat-rockin' rhythms are hammered and tempered in the grand sonic forge, until a set of eight amplified artifacts emerge. High-octane riffage and groovin' emissions host a vocal conquest that is potent and total, bringing hard rain to a cold dawn and warm song to all there beyond. Favorite track: Bells Of War.

about

Doomed & Stoned:

"The hefty vocals remind me of that classic heavy metal style most recently embodied by Screaming Mad Dee Calhoun and even Neil Fallon. In other words, there’s a lot of oomph to the songs. You can imagine Redscale’s vox having mutant powers to lift up rocks and tear down walls. At least that’s the crazy place my mind goes as I audit the record.

Imagine this embodied in a contemporary stoner rock framework and you’ve got Redscale’s style in a nutshell. Instrumentally, the songs are well-developed and aren’t in a rush to get you right into the verses and chorus, more intent to appreciate the scenery along the way to the gradual reveal. I’m certain that fans of Elder, Clutch, and Baroness will find much to dig here. If nothing else, this is a great summer record to turn up loud and salute, with beer or toke in hand."

Time for Metal (9/10):

"Die Berliner katapultieren sich mit diesem Werk auf eine Ebene mit bekannten Heavy Rockern, denen sie mit ihrem äußerst kraftvollen Sound in nichts nachstehen.

Tolles Zweitwerk der Berliner Heavy/ Stoner Rock Formation Redscale. Das Album ist geprägt von harten Riffs und einer überaus starken Stimme, die laut und kernig wirkt. Die Fangemeinde von Redscale dürfte sich mit Feed Them To The The Lions ausweiten. Wo andere bereits satt sind, fangen die Berliner erst an. Richtiges Futter für die Löwen mit sättigenden acht Songs. "

Noise Pollution (8/10):

"Feed Them to the Lions is a battlefield and nothing else. It was metal which had retained in it, a sense of aestheticism. The concept was lyrical, and given the timbre of the guitars, especially during the first song, I had to play it at least twice for the assurance that I was listening to the same band. After all this, I am perhaps, thankful to have reviewed this piece of art. This was the kind of music which you listen to on repeat, rocking your body to-and-fro with a cup of milk in your hand as you pretend it’s alcohol. But nevertheless, a revolutionary war which earned from me a rating of 8."

Marku's Heavy Music Blog (8/10):

"Fueled by heavy riff power the quartet cruise through the tracklist without taking compromising as an option."

Electrictunes:

„Sehr kraftvoll ist der Stonermetal aus der Bundehauptstadt, Redscale legen sich ordentlich ins Zeug und reißen den Hörer mit. Das, was „Feed them to the Lions“ aus den Boxen wabern lässt, das ist ganz klar mehr als irgendwas, was man nur einmal hört.“

Lords of Metal (81/100):

"What I find so cool about these songs is that they sound like the band just shakes them out of their collective sleeve, but that they are full of adventure. Except for a few straightforward songs each of them is a pleasant voyage of discovery, in which the riffs form an interesting tunnel system through which the listener is guided; with clear psychedelic influences that are the treasuries in this tunnel system and the dark, unexpected musical twists that are the guardians of these rooms. I've listened to this album at least eight times non-stop and the songs still sound fresh and fascinating. This is a must for anyone who loves good stoner and nice, heavy rock." (translated)

Track Name: Feed Them To The Lions
FEED THEM TO THE LIONS

wave old tattered banners on crumbling grey marble stairs
ancient ruins sing their mourning song
tales of old glory, a whisper in the air
a stronger hand, oh what we could become

from the throne divinely ruled, oh no one can deny my claim
darkest thoughts in golden rooms, no, pawns never survive this game
they may call me heartless and cruel
I just keep my people safe

heavy head that wears the crown
oh believe I feel the weight
heavy hand comes bearing down
kiss the ring that is sealing your fate

surrender your name, your page is torn out and is brought unto the fire
each word a transgression, each deed carefully weighed
a scythe through the grain for the thiefs, crooks and the liars
for oh lord, judgement has come

Feed ‘em to the Lions
on their knees and in chains
Feed ‘em to the Lions
removing the stain

after thunder comes a bitter rain
pleading voices sing the sweetest song
lessons some will only learn through pain
a golden god is what you want

thorny roses start to bloom and crimson petals line my way
tear the weeds out by the root, a marble figure turns your way
through the blindfold she’s gazing at you
Justice wielding more than scales

heavy head that wears the crown
iron spring parts chaff from grain
heavy hand comes bearing down
fingers closing the grip tightening

surrender your name, your page is torn out and is brought unto the fire
each word a transgression, each deed carefully weighed
a scythe through the grain for the thiefs, crooks and the liars
for oh lord, judgement has come

Feed ‘em to the Lions
on their knees and in chains
Feed ‘em to the Lions
removing the stain

pray for your life
your way to atonement and to be
absolved from your crimes
your true allegiance, your intent declared
for every lamb that has been led astray
to be brought
under the reign
Track Name: Hydra
HYDRA

from distant lands, over trembling earth
the horizon is filled with its shape
it draws closer each day
bells are ringing, they’re closing the gates

it rears its ugly head
we are taking a stand
it don’t take much to be brave
if you know, where it’s been made

as long as the well ain’t dry
you’ll never be betrayed
steady hands unchanging minds
an enemy to slay

cut off another head
the blade in the helping hand
no land that hasn’t bled
we paint the canvas in red

raise the flag in our name
and make ‘em join the parade
cut off another head
we paint the canvas in red

walk in lockstep, falling in line
gather forces for the cavalcade
steadfast and side by side
behind virtue are promises made

it rears its ugly head
we are taking a stand
it don’t take much to be brave
if you know, where it’s been made

where it’s been made

as long as the well ain’t dry
you’ll never be betrayed
steady hands unchanging minds
an enemy to slay

cut off another head
the blade in the helping hand
no land that hasn’t bled
we paint the canvas in red

raise the flag in our name
and make ‘em join the parade
cut off another head
we paint the canvas in red

we won’t stop and it grows another head
we paint the canvas in red

the blade is staking our claim
and we break what we cannot obtain
Track Name: Unstuck In Time
UNSTUCK IN TIME

used to see everything glued to canvas and locked in a frame
under violet wings, in your thoughts when you sleep and you wake
time’s a treacherous thing, every moment a leaf on your vine
growing hazy and blurred, from the instant you’re crossing the line

losing focus you stand
as the maelstrom awaits
see the distances fade
as you follow the way

when you follow the way, free yourself from your shackles tonight
when you follow the way, breaking through become unstuck in time
from the start to the end, see the moments like leafs on a vine
from the start all the way, to the violet light

drifting out into space, moving weightless and clear in your sight
every choice that you make, branching out on the canvas of time
as you’re pulling away, feel the veil being drawn from your eyes
now you’re finally free, constellations perfectly aligned

losing focus you stand
as the maelstrom awaits
see the distances fade
as you follow the way

when you follow the way, free yourself from your shackles tonight
when you follow the way, breaking through become unstuck in time
from the start to the end, see the moments like leafs on a vine
from the start all the way, to the violet light
Track Name: The Hard Rain
THE HARD RAIN

tremors shaking the earth
hope you’re holding on tight
coming down like the plague
fires tear the black sky

you should kneel and pray
in despair, screaming and crying
but in the back of your head
you heard for quite some time

let it crumble and fall
sinking into the fire
every castle and wall
every crime every fraud
an appropriate fate
turned to cinder and thrown on the pyre
and you call for the rain
down from above
let it all
wash away

stand laughing in the pouring rain
bear witness to the sundering
see the wicked how they try to hide
our time is over but you’re feeling fine

and on judgement day
amidst the chaos you smile
arms open praise the sky
fire brimstone let it die

let it crumble and fall
sinking into the fire
every castle and wall
every crime every fraud
an appropriate fate
turned to cinder and thrown on the pyre
and you call for the rain
down from above
let it all
wash away

oh we’re blessed by the rain
let it fall
our endeavours have failed
time to let go

hungry mouth greedy hands had to tear it down and have it all
hatred, jealousy reigned and a pride that comes before the fall
we overplayed our hand
there’s no shelter from this storm
calling out for the rain
let it all
wash away
Track Name: Bells Of War
BELLS OF WAR

broken faith and broken home
the temper’s rising
feel it humming in your bones
the shells are flying
a common man ain’t hard to find
pockets full of lead
them tired bells of war keep ringing
in my head

them tired bells of war keep ringing in my head
don’t matter who we are, it’s killing everyday
them tired bells of war keep ringing in my head
don’t matter who we are, it’s killing everyday

now the bodies piling high
why, they do not know
clawing over every mile
human nature shows
compassion for another time
wiser are the dead
them tired bells of war keep ringing
in my head

them tired bells of war keep ringing in my head
don’t matter who we are, it’s killing everyday
them tired bells of war keep ringing in my head
don’t matter who we are, it’s killing everyday

from the grave to the urn
you can lay where you like
from above sent with grace
no need to be afraid
bells tolling they’re calling your name
claim your place, and your right
from high above they’re ringing everyday

them tired bells of war keep ringing in my head
don’t matter who we are, it’s killing everyday
them tired bells of war keep ringing in my head
don’t matter who we are, it’s killing everyday
Track Name: Cold Dawn
COLD DAWN

I see light, storming the stage
shutters open, break of day
feel the waves come crashing down
I hear the sirens wail
look alive, with poise and grace
easy smiles and firm embrace
but my hands start wandering searching for a remedy

getting a taste
just a bit, ain’t nothing strange
but it’sclamoring out for more
convulsion, pleasure, pain
such a comfortable warmth
tidal wave down the spine
burning blood and freezing time
shelter me from the storm
that is howling inside
into darkness taking flight

and out, this far away
sweet silence rushing through my veins
lonely ghosts in these empty halls
until the light of day
and out, this far away
my shoulders free from every weight
but I’m feeling the creeping cold
at the light of day

open eyes, after the fall
on the ground, the angels moan
every fiber aching, grasping after any straw
go inside, open the door
echo chambers, empty halls
and the choir’s swelling
1000 voices, just one call

taking the reins
set a course, a destiny
deeper into the folds
the hunter found it’s prey

something from down
below crawls it’s way up the spine
burning blood and freezing time
caught in these iron jaws
and it’s howling inside
growing hunger feeds at night

and out, this far away
sweet silence rushing through my veins
lonely ghosts in these empty halls
until the light of day
and out, this far away
my shoulders free from every weight
but I’m feeling the creeping cold
at the light of day

and out, this far away
sweet silence rushing through my veins
lonely ghosts in these empty halls
until the light of day
and out, this far away
my shoulders free from every weight
but I’m feeling the creeping cold
at the light of day
Track Name: Phoenix
PHOENIX

after the fall
the smoke rising up from the sand
shattered ground below
and moving a skeletal hand
you’re raising these bones
you’re shaking off the dust
breaking from the hold
the flesh beneath the crust

shivering limbs
slowly creeping towards the edge
the expanse below
a solitary star ahead
it draws you in
a tremor from the core
you can hear the call
it’s time to come back home

the palest light
is leading into the grave
your mind decays and takes you into the cold

the earth cracking open, the old world has to die
a wail from the darkness below
we crawl from the ashes moving towards the light
after the fall

your body raised
a wandering ghost
burning with new blood
the searing mark emblazed
and you leave behind
a yawning empty grave

the way inside
is paved with every mistake
a cold embrace
the spectre leaving the host

the earth cracking open, the old world has to die
a wail from the darkness below
we crawl from the ashes moving towards the light
after the fall

will we find what we’re searching, break free from the hold
or are we on a path that leads us astray
oh we shovel the dirt, we’re looking for gold
what if we have been wrong all the way

the world must be broken and cast to the flames
we crawl from the ashes remade
