Nothing Quiet on the Western Front
It is not a coincidence that on the new single of THE MORRICONES - „Dead Man Walk On“ - the vocal part comes along with the ringing of death bells. If this is not enough for spreading oppression, Wolf Jacobi, singer of the band will give you the creeps while singing the refrain of the “Desperate Man” with his tanned voice. Chris Wiener on his guitar, Axel W. Mayr on his bass and Franz Gelhart on his drums are well up in riding with Wolf Jacobi as THE MORRICONES through their self-created acoustic landscapes. The dreadful, disturbing and emotional sounds as well as the glittering, dusty location they are set in create terrific, acoustic images that can be described best as “Western Drama”.

An Austrian Production from Berlin
The single that is available right now and the debut album, which will be released on July 1st 2016, were both produced by Raphael Tschernuth (who produced the album “Tell Me” for the Austrian Amadeus Award nominee and blues singer MEENA CRYLE). The string and brass sections were added manually as one would expect it for large soundtrack productions. For the recordings all musicians were dragged to the Western part of Berlin. There Tschernuth, the sound technician Jeremy Nothman (BEAR’S DEN), the drum specialist Joe Dilworth (PJ HARVEY, STEREOLAB) and the mastering legend Doug Henderson (THE SWANS, ANTONY AND THE JOHNSONS, DEVENDRA BANHART) added their personal touch to the 10 songs of the album.

Ennio News?
Excellent in melody and arrangement the song „Dead Man Walk On“ – acting as a first impression of the debut album „Tales of the Wasteland“ – is at least as good as the soundtracks of the famous Italian Western. Despite of that and the perfectly set quotations within the songs the music is more than present. „Desperate Man“ and the add-on single „Yucatán“ are songs easy to remember, made „Once Upon a Time in the West“.

Dead Man, Kill Bill!
Even if „Dead Man Walk On“ sounds as being part of the soundtrack from an Austrian Western in the middle of the Alps – this music has the power to rise from the valley of darkness. Should there finally be found a film director that has the guts to demand proper film music for the next generation of Western, there is certainly nobody else but THE MORRICONES that should be taken into consideration for this Quentin-step. One thing is certain: this would lead to a soundtrack that hasn’t been heard since “Once Upon a Time in the West”.

The Single „Dead Man Walk On“ from THE MORRICONES will be released on March 31st 2016 – as a first impression of the new album „Tales of the Wasteland“ that will be released on October 14th 2016 at the label Fistful of Music.

about

The Morricones Linz, Austria

Als eine Hommage an die Klangästhetik der berüchtigten Spaghetti Western
angelehnt, erschaffen THE MORRICONES ihr eigenes Western Drama. Mit
akustischen Gitarren, Kontrabass und Schlagzeug zeichnet die Band tonale
Landschaften und erzählt Geschichten von tragischen Helden mit gedankenschweren Emotionen. Doch ganz ernst
nehmen sollte man die Songs der vier passionierten Musiker nicht immer.

Track Name: Dead Man Walk On
Alone in this forlorn wasteland, is there a word to begin? Oh what brought me here and what drove me, what caused the state that I’m in? And was there a time, when we were happy together? Now I’m regretting my thoughts and my steps that I finally made.
And now I am alone in this world and it feels so wrong. There is only one appropriate word for what I have done. So has it been love or just pain, I keep asking in vain but I think I can’t tell you cause they both come together when you are a passionate man.
Now I am a desperate man, a desperado. All passion has gone, all that is left is my anger and my grief, dead man walk on. Desperate Man, desperado, I can’t go on, passion, hope, love, everything’s gone.

Track Name: Yucatán
On the tramp for weeks, no rest
Walkabout I’m on a special quest
The pain inside my legs is getting worse
What did I do what did it take
What were my reasons is it all a fake
These thoughts are weighing
heavy on my mind

Sometimes it’s good
I’m not travelling by foot
and the landscapes pass
at sixty miles per hour
Joy and passion
they both spread inside of me
My depletion is displaced by happiness

The big adventure I admire
Deep down inside
I feel a burning fire
to quench it would be
really very hard

I’m on my way to Yucatan
I am excited,
working on this plan
Has kept me busy
since I was a boy

Do I keep walking or will I give up?
This question comes up,
I don’t give a fuck
I want I must I will and I can!
