Jonathan This is an outstanding Rock, Country, Folk and Alt-Country album. Red Bowling Ball has made a perfect album brimming with catchy, moving and powerful songs. These guys can rock: the lead guitar shreds and the vocalist delivers soulful, bluesy sounds. This is a fucking great album. Favorite track: No Matter What.

Bucky Red Bowling Ball deliver all strikes with a damn near perfect game of heavy ass blues. Alongside the Traveller is both an invigorating listen as it is an example of artistic grit and pummeling rock and roll ecstasy.

Track Name: What is Yet to Come
What Is Yet To Come

I take this moment to tell my story
Mine is full of joy and misery
Everyone’s past is different
I’ll take my time to describe each event

I saw my first spring in Mississippi
Just near a lost city
I spent my childhood in a farm
Helping my parents, working my ass off

When I was 15 I saw my father die
I thought that I would never stop to cry
He was took away by an illness
Burn out by his hard work, he was restless

No matter what I have faith
In what is yet to come

Time had come for me to replace my dad
In order to survive, ensure things ain’t go bad
Mom was my teacher, my only friend
My choice was sealed, I had to stay ’til the end

One of these days I received a letter
I was shocked and felt a shiver
I was called to the Vietnam war
And I left my mom all alone

No matter what I have faith
In what is yet to come
Don't worry, ‘cause I have faith
In what is yet to come

Time had come for me to go back
I will never forget my mates trapped and stacked
I saw things, I did things
And I hope you’ll never do this to human beings

I found your grandmother again, and a wife
She gave me two sons and a much better life
See there sons ? Don’t give up the fight
In the end you will know I was right

No matter what have faith
In what is yet to come
Remember sons ? Always have faith
In what is yet to come

Yet to come !!!!!
Yet to come !!!!!
Track Name: Virgin Valley
Virgin Valley

Starring on this land
I cannot see the end
Never soiled by human hands
No tracks on the sand
Far from humanity
Far from activity
This image between mountains will stick in my brain

Where Am I?
And why?
But now I'm here I just want to stay
Wonder why?
I cry
But now I'm here I just want to stay

Always connected
Flooding their heads
Locked in front of TV
Like mere zombies
Open your eyes
Open your minds
Behind the screens the real life will begin

Get On, Come on this wish is flowing in your veins

Come on the Virgin Valley
On the Virgin Valley
Get on the Virgin Valley
On the Virgin Valley

When I think about
Difficulties and doubts
I've been through, through such pain
I never complained
Watch the distance
Watch the sacrifice
It's nothing compared to the beauty of this land

Where Am I?
And why?
But now I'm here I just want to stay
Wonder why?
I cry
But now I'm here I just want to stay

Claim no possessions
Overconsommation
The worst things they did was caused by their greed
Such cupidity
Such insanity
Leave them to depression without solutions

Get On, Come on this wish is flowing in your veins

Come on the Virgin Valley
On the Virgin Valley
Get on the Virgin Valley
On the Virgin Valley

On the Virgin Valley

Wild animals
Flowing stream
Old trees
This Virgin forest
Waterfall sound
Huge mountains
Wide lakes
Endless Water
The rising sun
Dancing shadows
All these things
All those beautiful things
Make a whole
And live together
In harmony

Feeling the wind
Is the only thing I need
Flows got me towards this strange valley
Follow the stream
Follow my dreams
Carried by this nature
I found my place, I'm sure

Where Am I?
And why?
But now I'm here I just want to stay

Come on the Virgin Valley
On the Virgin Valley
Get on the Virgin Valley
On the Virgin Valley

On the Virgin Valley

Come on the Virgin Valley
On the Virgin Valley
Get on the Virgin Valley
On the Virgin Valley
Track Name: No Matter What
No Matter What

When you feel you're alone
And nothing can be done
Blues grows inside you
And the rock's coming too

No matter what
No matter what
Music is an escape, for a new landscape

You cannot deny it
Cause you're feeling a beat
You're like an other one
Ready to be down

No matter what
No matter what
Keeping you in those chains

If you feel concerned
By the songs you heard
You shouldn't be sad
If people are mad

Let them chat
No matter what
Leave them, they're so far yeah they're so far

Some people say shit
Other praise about it
You know what I mean
Your mind have to be clean

They called you brat
No matter what
You must stay as you are

Feeling all the vibes
Blood gets in your eyes
Leave your problems aside
And show us all your pride

No matter what
No matter what
This is the rock and blues soul, it's my old man blues

Music's your therapy
Against this agony
It's burning in your veins
A spark in your brain

No matter what
No matter what
Forever trapped in these chains

This song seems insane
And stick in your brain
Forever trapped in these chains
Track Name: Silence of Despair
Silence of Despair

It's always the circumstance
That makes the difference
'Cause with only one overload
Foundations may explode

We can't control everything
The wide-eyed, full of despair
I just want to make you to know

Behind and through pain
Even if it's a fight in vain
You believed despite the blow
In what you already know

Blocked in a bitter feeling
The empty-eyed, full of despair
I felt you lived in a suspended flow

I tried to make you safe
I did my best, but now you're too far away from me
I cried, Couldn't make you safe
I tried to drive you back on the road of honesty

That secret you wanted to keep
Was way, way too deep
For you fragilized soul
To struggle all alone

Ended up on the floor crawling
The blood-eyed, full of despair
I just want to tell you where to go

I tried to make you safe
I did my best, but now you're too far away from me
I cried, Couldn't make you safe
I tried to drive you back on the road of honesty

In the darkness a light appears
and do not fear
Do you feel this warmth through your veins?
It's not meaningless
"'Cause I know I'm not in a dream
I can't understand what it does mean"

You have to raise your head
Hope is not dead
Redemption through acceptance
To feel deliverance
'Cause I know it's a long way to go
Please you have to trust in I

I tried to make you safe
I did my best, but now you're too far away from me
I cried, Couldn't make you safe
I tried to drive you back on the road of honesty
Track Name: Phoenix
Lyrics written by Maxime Ancelin.

Phoenix

All that is gonna fall apart
Can't you see it is a fact?
Now we are gonna pay the price,
all that matters in our eyes
Ashes in wind and rock to sand
As we're falling, moon is smiling

As damage strike's our heart
We risk of turning black
Decisions in a tense time,
Gonna end up breaking all
Words to swords and meek to bleak
Rust is spreading, all is burning

But now, we are still alive,
Stronger than ever, we have no fear
In the ruins, there's still a light,
We rebuild, this is our fate
Brick by brick and wall by wall
Past time glory, coming back

Hope what we've been can made us better
What have we learned from the past?
You got some seeds,
Use them as you like
Write your story, draw your path
Make sure you're proud of every step you make

"A mythical bird that never dies, the phoenix flies far away to the front, always scanning the landscape and distant space. It represents our capacity for vision, for collecting sensory information about our environment and the events unfolding within it. The phoenix with it's great beauty, creates intense excitement and deathless inspiration."
