Velcra - Between Force and Fate - Our Will Against Their Will

Jessi Frey rocks, as does her band Velcra. Velcra is hands down one of my favorite finds at MIDEM 2006! Not only do they sound and look great, they actually have something to say.

"Our Will Against Their Will," the cut off their CD, Between Force and Fate, that was included on the Come here. Finland promotional CD knocks me out. When I found the lyrics of the song on their site, it made me love this song and band even more!

The music is tight, interesting, the vocals exactly what you would want from a female metal maven. I love it!

"Our Will Against Their Will"

Not as small as they think
No one's property
We're not here to please
We don't owe them anything
Noble is our cause
Justice our reward
I say upon my honor
The battle cannot be lost

Misleadingly it may seem
That their opponent is weak and feeble
but underneath
We have the willpower of steel
The insight, the heart and
the stomach of a king

It's our will against their will
It's our steel against their steel
And shortly
You will see how we separate
the men from the vermins
With your valor on the field
With your concord amongst your peers
We will claim a famous victory
Over the enemies of our righteous people

We are the righteous people

We are not here for disport
Defend our realm our home
And I think foul scorn
Of the invadors of our borders
Fear no sacrifice
Protect our kingdom's life
I lay down for my God
Live and die amongst you all

We're a diamond perfected under pressure
I assure you, we'll make our tyrants fearful
Even with our blood and guts in the dust
We'll continue to pursue what we feel that we must

It's our will against their will
It's our steel against their steel
And shortly
You will see how we separate the men from the vermin
With your valor on the field
With your concord amongst your peers
We will claim a famous victory
Over the enemies of our righteous people

We are the righteous people

Noble is our cause
Justice our reward
The battle cannot be lost

Jessi Frey and Valcra, may you win all of your battles!

The Come hear.Finland promotional CD is a partnership between MOKIA Nseries, Contra, d:centia, and Kuuko, with support from the Finnish Ministries of Trade and Industry, Education, Foreign Affairs, and the Finnish Cultural Foundation, the Finnish Performing Music Promotion Centre ESEK, and the Foundation for the Promotion of Finnish Music Luses. I obtained a copy at the Finnish Music Information Centre FIMIC booth.
