Clockwork Revolution surprise with high octane video single

Sometimes the best things in life find you out of the blue and arrive without any announcement. It has been like this for me when I heard about Clockwork Revolution a band that is comprised of former members of Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force, Crimson Glory and Kamelot. Currently mastering their debut album, the band has released their debut video – “Give Me the Reins”.

Clockwork Revolution is drummer Patrick Johannson (W.A.S.P., Yngwie Malmsteen, G3, Gus G, Lynch Mob), singer Wade Black (Leatherwolf, Crimson Glory, Seven Witches, Leash Law, War of Thrones), bassist Dirk Van Tilborg (Alias, Attakk, Crimson Glory, Kamelot) and guitarist Dewayne Hart (Kinlin).

Having given the video a spin it becomes quickyl clear that this band kicks a lot of ass. It is straight forward metal coming directly from the heart. It reminded me positively of Rob Rock and Metal Church in a lot of ways. It's great to see a band combining elements of modern and traditional metal in such a explosive mixture.


Most of all the video shows the musical abilities all the members contribute to the bands sound. It's this high energy level and easiness that adds to the fun of watching Clockwork Revolution perform also making music for sure is not as easy as it may look in videos like this. To me musicians are like sportsman performing on a high level. They all train hard, they all practice regulary and they all give their best to archive their goal and to give us what we all love and enjoy.

If this song has made you longing for more (like me) head over to the band’s website which contains audio samples of the debut album available for streaming. Clockwork Revolution wrote and recorded the 10 original tracks in August and November of 2015. The album has been mixed and is currently being mastered for a 2016 release.
