about

“One thing is sure, "Damage Dancer" rocked my world!! Highly recommended stuff!”
- Heavy Paradise - USA

“Gun Barrel continue doing what they do best and that’s rocking!”
- Lords Of Metal - Netherlands

“Once you pop this CD into the player, you're repeatedly punched in the face with raw power.”
- William Telltale, Sleaze Roxx - USA

“Here you can pick up on the fun side of the band, performing for the pure love of the music.”
- Dave Campbell, Metal Temple - Greece

“Kurzum, wenn die Band von ihrem bislang ausgereiftesten Werk spricht, dann mit Fug und Recht!”
- Walter, ZephyrdOdem - Germany

“Es gibt sie noch, die Bands, welche mit einer schönen Regelmässigkeit gute Alben veröffentlichen. Gun Barrel aus Deutschland ist eine davon.”
- Roger, Metal Factory - Switzerland

“There is no chance these guys will release a bad album…”
- Verkaim, Behind the veil - Greece

“Gun Barrel bleiben im Besitz der Arschtrittlizenz.”
- Jörg Müller, The Pit - Germany

“These German boys get pretty damn close to evoking the ballsy, bluesy feel of a bar band that's ready to explode onto the audience as much as rock them. Gun Barrel do an amazing job of delivering the feel of being at the Whisky A Go Go circa the mid 80s…”
- Genghis, The Right To Rock - USA

Track Name: Damage Dancers
Damage Dancers


VRS1:
Busted & bruised with your face in the dirt
Losing your grip once again
You simply refuse to follow the herd
Constantly dodging the pain

VRS2:
Unbent, unbroken one sidestep ahead
Ducking the blows as they come
Fury unspoken you’re back from the dead
Taking them down one by one

PRE:
The dance begins, the world starts turning
Round & round …
Get in the ring, oh, we are yearning
White-knuckled, hell-bound

CHR:
Hatred and love
Strike from above
The legion of the damage dancers
Humility and pride
Stand side by side
The legion of the damage dancers

CHR2:
Compassion and rage
Strike from the stage
The legion of the damage dancers
Pleasure and pain
Come down like rain
The legion of the damage dancers
Track Name: Bashing Thru
Bashing Thru

Soaking up the stardust
Sucking up the heat
Smoking up the ozone
Put it on the street
I'm your cosmic enforcer
I keep my whiskey clean
Velvet vigilante
For a carnival of freaks

Out of the darkness
With an appetite
I'm hungry and willing to fight
Rise to the fire
The flame burning bright
Turn my gaze to the skies

Burst into the clouds
I shall divide and rule
At whatever the cost
I'll keep on bashing thru

Unleashing the hounds
Into the stratosphere
I'm your spaced out invader
And i will persevere
The onslaught of a cycle
I got stars in my beard
The duke is back in action
And I’m gunning out of here
Track Name: Judgement Day
Judgment Day

Sick and tired of hangin out
With the shuffling & undead
Loud & proud with an attitude
Like bullet to your head

Your jelly brain In the lost and found
Won't take you anywhere
I hit the streets In full riot gear
Cuz tonight I just don't care

I just don't care
Smell of thunder in the air
I command the lightning's hand

So I'm counting down to judgment day
And I wouldn't have it any other way
Your evil empire Engulfed in flames
Tonight you're going down tonight yeah alright

Long haul Scarred for life
Evade the eagle eye
Hard looks Branded hearts
And a grim resolve to die

On and on the truth unfolds
Riding shotgun with your fears
We hit the streets in full riot gear
Just to show we still don't care

Smell of thunder in the air
I command the lightning's hand

So we're counting down to judgment day
And we wouldn't have it any other way
You better get on down your skinny knees and pray

Found my reasons
Found the trust
Blood and honor
Never rust away
Track Name: Passion Rules
Passion Rules

Here I am spirit free
Unbroken by the law
Torn by love and Violence
I've seen you rise and fall
Like a flaming tree
On holy ground
Rooted in your life
Your heroic pride
Or foolish hope
And I cut you like a knife

I'm in your blood
Now can you feel the fire
I'm in your soul
The life or death decider
I'm in your bones
Now can you feel me reach out for you
My pain flies true
Passion rules
Passion rules
I'm your bleeding heart
Your burning gut
And the barrel of your gun
I'll keep you work so hard
Watch your rising star
Or the setting of your sun
You and me
We're bad company
Like stray dogs in the wild
Take it right to the edge
Like a man on the ledge
Now spread your wings and fly

I'm in your blood
Now can you feel the fire
I'm in your soul
The life or death decider
I'm in your bones
Now can you feel me reach out for you
My pain flies true
Passion rules
Passion rules

I'm your fire
I'm your flame
Driving you insane
(Passion Rules)
Your endless fight
I am your rage
The king of your reptile brain
(Passion Rules)

All the lonely nights
You were fighting the world
You were nothing but a dreamer
You finally found the right door
To channel your rage
And it made you a believer
Now eternal streams
Will carry your dream
Out into the open
And through it all
Looking at you
One thing holds true
Passion Rules
Passion Rules
I'm your fire
I'm your flame
Driving you insane
(Passion Rules)
Your endless fight
I am your rage
The king of your reptile brain
(Passion Rules)
Passion Rules
Track Name: Building A Monster
Building A Monster

I'm building a monster to clean up this mess
The streets must be ruled hard as nails
A B-Movie nightmare is comin your way
To visions of Evil I pray - I gotta getaway

So tired of Shouting when nobody hears
We look back in anger and we're watching you

My sinful creation, my spawn of revenge
He's soothing the rats in the walls
My army of madness shall wander this earth
Awakened to settle the score - Kill 'em all

So tired of Shouting when nobody hears
We look back in anger and we're watching you
You should have listened now you're living in fear
We're destined to swallow your soul

I'm building a monster
To shape things up right
It's holding the shadows at bay
I'm making a monster
To take what is mine
Luring the moth to the flame

I'm building a monster with vapour and steam
To wanton destruction you'll kneel
I'm a darklord commanding dominions of pain
Enlisting newborn renegades
So tired of Shouting when nobody hears
We creep in the shadows we're following you
You should have listened now your Reckoning's near
We're destined to swallow your soul

I'm building a monster
To do what is right
It's holding the voices at bay
I'm making a monster
To clean up this life
Track Name: Whiteout
Whiteout

White witch at the riverbend
Beacon in the snow
Point me to the sacred land
Bring me eyesight of the crow

I've crossed the mountains
To the riddles of your song
Now I fear I'm going blind
Where do I belong?
Where do I belong?

I forgot my native tongue
The language of the free
I locked myself in a tower cell
And I swallowed down the key

This could be my living end
And I fear I'm going blind
White witch at the riverbend
I will linger for a sign

Soaring on the wind
Without a sound
Sheltered by your wings
My heart is winterbound
Finally made it home
And the world slows down
Lying in the snow
My heart is winterbound

Whiteout

Silence of the wilderness
The patience of the trees
Your song is growing louder still
Than the white noise in my ears

I am the traveller
It is everything I know
I was cold and I lost my way
Now the blizzards are my home
Track Name: Back Alley Ruler
Woke up this morning - feeling trashed
Guess in the end she took me home
She bought the drinks, I brought the thirst
She was the dog, I brought the bone

A night's delight - a day's regret
I heard her boyfriend's Chevy-Van
Puked in my car, got on the bus
So now it's 'On the Road Again'

Back Alley Ruler
For all my life
I'm just a Back Alley Ruler
For all my time

The repo-man he took my car
I guess I just ran out of luck
Taxes, health care, unpaid bills
I never gave much of a fuck

The little nerd droned on an on
I didn't get a single thing
It doesn't matter anyway
Cuz on the road I am the king

Passing out on the backseat
Yeah I dumped my self-control
Sleeping naked on main street
It's only Rock'n'Roll!
Track Name: Ride The Dragon
Ride the Dragon

Hit the stream
Like a wave train
Your slug is punching through
Rapids boil
And Chaos will reign
The quickening is due
River wild
Sliding high
Propels you to your fall
Max velocity
Hydro Speed
Can you hear the sirenes call
Savage current in your blood
Wired till you drop
Watch out for the undertow
It might just use you up
Ride the dragon
Got my face in the wind
And I challenge the gods to be free
On a hazard hunt
In the danger zone
Until your body breaks
Into the eye
of the maelstrom
Defiant and enraged
Ride the dragon
Got my face in the wind
And I challenge the gods to be free
Ride the dragon
Atone for my sins
And I challenge my mortality
Track Name: Heading For Disaster
Heading for Disaster

Hey little sister what’s up with you
Making headlines with your new tattoo

Mommy don’t mind when daddy doesn’t care
Chasing your luck with a wild eyed stare

Money makes a difference, I know that it does
Money makes a difference when you’re selling your ass

You’re heading for disaster

Did your rehab - now you’re on the run
A rampant Mona Lisa coming undone

Years down the line and nothing left to tell
Tomorrow is your training day in hell

Money makes a difference, I know that it does
Money makes a difference when you’re selling your ass

You know how to suck the air out of a room
My mind gets lost in your sweet perfume
Track Name: Vultures Are Waiting
Vultures are Waiting

Dragging your feet
In smothering heat
King lizard will witness you bleed
In tatters and rags
You woke bound and gagged
Yesterdays good times gone bad

And oh your moment has come
To sort out your rights from your wrongs
You can't help but counting the skulls
Left there to bleach in the sun
They're humming and laughing and jesting
and calling my name

They left you behind
To wither and die
Life is a merciless crime
Hunters of doom
Eyeing your wounds
The reaper is beckoning you

And oh your moment has come
Can you fight back and carry the torch
Or run out like the sands of time
Returning your bones to the dust

Vultures are waiting
Circling in the sky
So keep moving
Vultures are waiting
Keep your dreams alive
Can't let terror rule your mind

Nowhere to hide
Eyes in the sky
Wait for your will to subside
Do you still dream
Do you believe
Can you survive this ordeal

And oh your moment has come
Can you fight back and carry the torch
Or run out like the sands of time
Returning your bones to the dust


Vultures are waiting
Circling in the sky
So keep moving
Vultures are waiting
Keep your dreams alive
Can't let terror rule your mind

Toughen your will
To follow your heart
Let them speak in unison
Braving your fear
With the urge to carry on
Freeing your soul
From the shadow of death
Fight to survive
Raise your flag
And keep it flying high
Track Name: Rise Up To The Storm
Rise up to the storm
Been in & out of trouble
Since I saw my first guitar
I've had to get outta town on the double
I ain't runnin' anymore

Thunderheads are building
Threaten to swallow the land
Gonna lean into the mayhem
And rise up to the storm

Over the crimson horizon
There's a future to be found
Gonna get my piece of the action
There aint no two ways about it

I'm never gonna back down from it
I'm so damn close that I can taste it
So I'll be pushing on
To face the break of dawn
I'm gonna rise up to the storm

Dog fight
Till the morning light
And I'd rather be fighting my way
Cause everytime I took a gamble
There was devil in the deck

Stay on track of what it's all about
Keep my head out of the clouds
It's a hard man's life and that's what I like
I ain't gonna take a bow

Found my sense of direction
I expect no helping hand
I'm taking my piece of the action
There ain't no two ways about it

I'm never gonna back down from it
I'm so damn close that I can taste it
So I'll be pushing on
To face the break of dawn
I'm gonna rise up to the storm

It's a dog fight
All night
And it's alright
