The world is currently in a dire state of turmoil, with numerous crises unfolding back to back which are causing massive ongoing damage both to humankind and the planet.
A4O4A is a collaborative effort between a number of musicians in the European Heavy Metal music scene with the sole intention of raising funds to DONATE to international relief efforts.
“NOW AT LONG LAST VICTORY!”
During the writing process for the upcoming ELA album, Russia invaded Ukraine in the largest conventional military invasion since the Second World War.
As a result of this, both the band and their producer (ex- FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH guitarist Caleb Bingham) unanimously agreed to change direction and write a song dedicated to the memory of all who have suffered and died as a result of the Russia/Ukraine war.
Additionally, the group has recruited a few other musicians to join them on the song who have played in bands such as AVANTASIA, AT VANCE, AXXIS, CRYSTAL VIPER, MYSTIC PROPHECY and PINK CREAM 69 among others…
The group hopes “Fight With Pride” will serve as an anthem for all those who have so bravely struggled and fought to defend against tyranny!
“THE WATER ROSE – OUR CITIES FELL”
Inspired by the devastation caused by the massive flooding in the Ahr valley in Germany, guitarist and luthier Uwe Ulm decided to write a song commemorating the disaster.
He began to recruit a few musicians who in turn recruited a few more, until the project’s ranks eventually swelled to nearly 20 veteran Heavy Metal musicians who have played in bands such as HELLOWEEN, GAMMA RAY, PRIMAL FEAR, FREEDOM CALL, MASTERPLAN, and FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH just to name a few…
However, throughout the writing and recording process of the song, more and more catastrophic natural disasters similar to those in Germany have continued to occur worldwide.
As a result, the group has decided to dedicate the song to all people everywhere who are continually being impacted by climate change and use their collective talents to not only raise awareness of the issue, but also to raise funds to DONATE to disaster relief efforts worldwide.
