The group was called Green Pepper because of the leader’s last name – Pertsev. The musicians grew up listening to such rock legends as The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and became the basis of what they represent now. They say that Muse, Kings Of Leon and 30 Seconds To Mars guide on their way.

Biography

The band was formed in Minsk in 2010 by Daniel Pertsev, it’s leader. Later Alexander Martinyuk, Alex Petrov and Alexei Kargachev also joined it. The attempts to create a band were made by Daniel earlier in 2008 but the final decision was made in 2010. The musicians grew up listening to such rock legends as The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Deep Purple and that shaped their musical tastes and became the basis of what they represent now.

The group was called Green Pepper because of the leader’s last name – Pertsev, and the adjective green was added to make the band name more spicy as the guys say. In spite of the short period of existence they have achieved many goals: they have performed at various concerts and festivals, represented their country at ‘RockWave’ festival which was held in the Crimea, they shared the stage with such bands as SLOT, Jane Air and Tractor Bowling. But the most prominent was the release of their first album «Get On The Right Road» in 2010 on which they had been working for 5 months.

‘We devoted so much to the creation of this album. Basically we’ve put some parts of ourselves into it. The album is filled with deep thought, each song is supposed to give something to our listeners,’ – says the band leader Daniel. ‘This release is pretty complex and I think that everyone can find something important in it.’

Recently more and more people have said that the style of their music is ‘brit rock’, and the guys accept this as true. They say that Muse, Kings Of Leon and 30 Seconds To Mars guide them on their way.

Over the past year they have proved that they’re worth the public’s attention. The critics and colleagues speak highly of this young band. They know Green Pepper, they listen to their music and predict that they will have a great future. They set hopes on the band, but admit that they will probably be more successful abroad and not on the post-CIS territory, where their music is accepted with a bit of reluctance.

Lyrics

I Don't Wanna Loose You

Written By: Green Pepper

I can refuse all
Words, that I said.
But the feeling inside me
Doesn't want to forget.

I can refuse all things, that I've done.
But the feeling inside me
Thinks, that all this is wrong.

I don't wanna loose you,
I don't wanna be without you.

I will let you go… never.
We will love together forever.
I will let you go… never.
I won't let you gooo…

Brokenhearted

Written By: Daniel Pertsev

Babe, I can't believe you've gone.
Babe, I can't believe you left me alone.
So babe, what have you done?
Baby, babe.

Babe, I can't believe it's true,
Babe, just tell me “why”.
Babe, I know it wasn't you,
Baby, babe.

You've broken my heart,
You washed our dreams away.
You put it apart
And I'm, now I'm brokenhearted.

The Last Way To Home

Written By: Daniel Pertsev

Why is the World so round?
There are no exits around.
Why I am getting so down?
Why I'm not getting out?

I must Be steady and strong.
I mustn't get so down.
I see the light behind black mountain.
Maybe it's the last way to home.

La Vita

Written By: Daniel Pertsev

Un giorno hai capito, che
Stai spreccando la tua vita.
Fumando una sigaretta e non volendo
Fare in fretta.
E poi hai chisto a Dio, se lui ti
Aiuta a capire che cosa la tua
Vita sia.

Ma la vita non e’un riposo,
E’ un’attimo meraviglioso.
Non c’e tempo per stare seduti,
Non c’e senso per essere caduti.

All You Want

Written By: Daniel Pertsev

I don't know, I don't know
What time it was.
She took my force.
I don't know, I don't know
What'll be today,
She didn't say.

Tell me baby, what you think
About it and I will give you
What you want.
All you want.

I don't know, I don't know
What is in my head.
I'm going mad.
And I hold, and I hold, and
I hold you strong, for all life long.

Freedom

Written By: Daniel Pertsev

What a terrible headache
I had all day long.
I don't want any hazard
Today I'm very tired.

I have played a rough game
For so much time
And this game has bothered me,
Now I want my prize.

So give me my freedom
It's all I want.
So give me my freedom
It's all I need.

With You

Written By: Daniel Pertsev

I have the feeling inside of me,
It's all for you, do you believe?
I have a feeling, a feeling you are mine.
And please believe me, that is not a lie.

Too many things, that we passed through.
Now please believe me. I was a fool.
If you ask me, I'll give you all my love.
When I'm without you, I simply feel lost.

I will always be with you.
Babe, oh, I promise you.
I will always be with you,
I will always… love you.

All my days are made of you.
I'm going mad, I think it's true.
Please forget about the mistakes
I made.
And I regret, without you I will fade.

Surrender

Written By: Daniel Pertsev

I know that something's gonna change.
I know, I must take a revenge.
But I feel some pain inside my heart,
I feel, that I can fall apart…

My way lies through the night,
I know, that soon I'm gonna fight,
I know, that I should not give up,
I think, that I still have a hope…

Surrender… Is not my vital curd.
Surrender… Is the fate of the weak.
Surrender… Makes me much more hurt.
Surrender… Is the fate of the weak.
