Biography

Wicked Earth is a 4-piece band from Pittsburgh, PA that plays straight rock 'n' roll music.

They combine a growling, bluesy Gibson guitar, a tight, heavy and moody bass/drum combo, and strong emotional/melodic vocals.

Within the rock realm they have a broad range of influences that are apparent in the diversity of their songs, which range from acoustic to metal.

Their newly-released self-produced 10-song LP entitled ‘Seas of Discontent’ demonstrates this diversity.

With songs ranging from short energetic bursts to more exploratory musical journeys, Wicked Earth exhibits song writing skills that are not characteristic of a band with only one record under it's belt.

Yet with this diversity Wicked Earth maintains a very distinct, consistent sound that is easy to dig into if you're a fan of old-fashioned rock 'n' roll.

Lyrics

Voodoo Man

Written By: Wicked Earth

A doll of wax, a little skin
(you) don't know the mess your in
A lock of hair, button eyes
You're in for a big surprise

Voodoo Man…
All set to mark your soul
Voodoo Man…
A little curse going to take its toll

(the) fire's hot, it scars the night
Your pain my master's delight
A little prick, it's all you need
Reminding you of what I bleed

Voodoo Man…
(Now) I'm the one that's in control
Voodoo Man…
You were a rock, but now the heads will roll

Looks like, you crossed the line
Pressed in your back, one last time
Time to pay the toll, its to the Voodoo Man
It's a relfection, a reflection of you
Pay the toll…pay the toll, its to the Voodoo Man
Pay the toll…pay the toll…pay the toll

Voodoo Man…
All set to mark your soul
Voodoo Man…
I'm the one that's in control

Now I need you to be
Cause I'm the one now that's going to be
And now I need you to see
That I'm the one now that's in control

Storm

Written By: Wicked Earth

And as I once recall
It was an early evening one fall
And the smell of oven fire
Well it fueled his desire
And he could sense it all
What had to be done
And therefore it was
The Calm before the storm

So many years
With so many tears
Torn apart thru time
All the pieces of his mind
Lost within his soul
was all that he could hold
The faces with their scorn
You know he could hold no more

I remember when
He was just a little boy
And now the boy that once stood
Well he stands no more
I remember innocence
When the world was true
Just our young hearts
Just me and you

Well enough about the past
Cause good things they never last
They always seem to stab
Like an ambush in the back
Well it's funny this thing trust
And all the power that it holds
Amused as it turns
You know it smiles as it unfolds

I remember when
He was just a little boy
And now the boy that once stood
Well he stands no more
I remember innocence
When the world was true
Just our young hearts
Just me and you
Now the wind blew
And the sky grew dark
Now was the time
to make his mark
He made his first cut
And he felt the spark
This chain reaction
it began to start…
...it began to start

Run little boy
Run from your fear
Run little boy
While the wind will wipe away your tears
Run little boy
Cause you can't escape the time
Run little boy
Your judgement is mine…

The NRG

Written By: Wicked Earth

Running, around my life today
I can't seem to take this anymore
And I just can't keep you out of my mind today
I just keep spinning for more

Cause love, it's all around me
It surrounds me, I'm getting high
And the passion, and the energy
It's around me tonight

Chasing, after you today
My heart keeps pounding for you
And I won't stop running after you today
I'll just keep coming, 'till I get some more

Cause love, it's all around me
It surrounds me, I'm getting high
And the passion, and the energy
It's around me tonight

Ooh, running, chasing, got to, got to have you
and I won't stop 'til get some more
Ooh, running, chasing, got to, got to have you
and I won't stop 'til get some more

Cause love, it's all around me
It surrounds me, I'm getting high
And the passion, and the energy
It's around me tonight
Oh it's the passion, oh the passion
It's the energy of life
And I can't wait to take you home
To take you home tonight
