Henrik Thøgersen Armed with sensational songwriting skills, evocative vocals, fist-pumping riffs, and a pristine production Vandallus rise high above the throng of 80s worshiping retro-rockers on the scene. Like all truly great music, this cornucopia of engaging hard rock bangers will surely stand the test of time. Favorite track: Who's Chasing Me.

Verse 1 I wish I could go back to those days, had no worries, we would roll the dice Used to sit around the streets, terrorizing, living life, just the way it should be The time came to quickly, we grew up & we needed a job And the others, they had slipped away, some to prison, even death now gone PreChorus Send me a sign... Can we escape this fate... Chorus Break the storm, Throw it to the ground... Break the storm, A frozen world of life hell bound... [Break] Verse 2 Now we're here, trapped inside this void, trying To make a living just to pass Without a single penny left to spend Deeper and deeper in debt PreChorus Send me a sign... Can we escape this fate... Chorus Break the storm, Throw it to the ground... Break the storm, A frozen world of life hell bound... Break the storm, Throw it to the ground... Break the storm, A frozen world of life hell bound... Theme Send me a sign... Send me a sign... [SOLO] Verse 3 Underneath the ice every day, it feels so heavy but who is to blame... I fight through this storm, 10 feet of snow, will it ever end, will I remain... How much longer can I stand this game, I'm fightin through the motions, so insane PreChorus Send me a sign... Can we escape this fate... Chorus Break the storm, Throw it to the ground... Break the storm, A frozen world of life hell bound... Break the storm, Throw it to the ground... Break the storm, A frozen world of life hell bound… ground, ground, ground…

I’m high… Verse 1 Out of control, just a wild child on the roll Rock'n & party'n & playing the game, the one most love and enjoy... Then you have all the haters march, complainers try to ruin all the fun... But we have the freedom to leave and catch the flight away... Chorus Everybody lives and has a wild side... Don't you try to deny... Live it up, life's to short to hide... It's a better place to be on the higher side... Verse 2 Who are you foolin, cause you sure ain't foolin me... Rock n roll is in your blood, if you don't think so just wait and see... It's full of the power, who needs the money or the make believe... Just play the music & rock, & bang your head for free... Chorus Everybody lives and has a wild side... Wild child, wild child Denial is make believe... Just live it up, don't you hide... It's a better place just let it be... On the high side, wild child A drink a day is only victory... Wild child, wild child [SOLO] Verse 3 There seems to be confusion, I think the cops have found the one... Catch us if you can, before we get away... There's times when we’re in trouble, I guess the worlds not a perfect place... But as long as there's rock n roll, I'll be singing in my jail cell... Chorus Everybody lives and has a wild side... Wild child, wild child Denial is make believe... Just live it up, don't you hide... It's a better place just let it be... On the high side, wild child A drink a day is only victory... Wild child, wild child

Verse 1 Walking around, by the lake It's the night at the start of a weekend I've gotta drive, gonna get all tanked tonight To go around and throw the week away... PreChorus Lunacy, it resides in my veins, alright... Heresy, it surrounds my brain, all night... Chorus I’m on my way... Who's chasing me... Ready for a fight… Gotta get away... From the flashing light... All these lights are blinding my sight... When all is lost Catch yourself in the mirror Wrapped inside these chains... When life is at stake And your running from terror You gotta hold on... Verse 2 One night, time on my side.... I cracked a bottle, and another, till my nerves were right It’s a gamble, gonna take my every turn... I was young then, but I'll play it till the day I die... PreChorus Lunacy, it resides in my veins, alright... Heresy, it surrounds my brain, all night... Chorus I’m on my way... (high) Who's chasing me... Ready for a fight Gotta get away... From the flashing light... All these lights are blinding my sight... When all is lost Catch yourself in the mirror Wrapped inside these chains... When life is at stake And your running from terror You gotta hold on... [SOLO] Verse 3 What have I done, I have got a way... Now I need you, I’d-a-hurry back to the lake... Throw the keys away, report it stolen... Never found me, nor did any evidence remain... PreChorus Lunacy, it resides in my veins, alright... Heresy, it surrounds my brain, all night... Chorus I’m on my way... Who's chasing me... Ready for a fight… Gotta get away... From the flashing light... All these lights are blinding my sight... When all is lost Catch yourself in the mirror Wrapped inside these chains... When life is at stake And your running from terror You gotta hold on... (repeats, call response solo’s)

Running Lost 06:10
Verse 1 Looking out the darkened window, driving down the street... And I’m, wondering where this road will take me to... Every morning, I wake up misery... Without you got no place to go... to go… Verse 2 Used to be a place for me in somebody's heart... Now the pieces are scattered all over, where do I begin... In a time of misery, I grieve no sympathy... Yes it's easier to flee & hide, or end my life... I said it’s easier to flee & hide, or end my life… End, end, end, end, end, end my life… Chorus Will you realize... Someone's telling lies... Give me remedy... Cause you've been gone... I need to see you try... Why you tell these lies... Give me remedy... From insanity... [SOLO] No, no, no, no, no, no way I’ll come in… Verse 3 Baby, just stay away, don't come any closer to me now... I don't need you by my side anymore cause I found my place... I wanna run, just a want a get away for good... No matter how I try, I just take the blame... Chorus Will you realize... Someone's telling lies... Give me remedy... Since you've been gone... I need to see you try... Why you tell these lies... Give me remedy... From insanity... [Repeat] [SOLO OUTRO]

Verse 1 To much crime here on these streets, I can feel the heat, never miss a beat Gotta stay alive, you cannot hide... Ever wonder how the world goes round It sure beats the hell outta me Don't be the next in line to get thrown to the side... PreChorus Wish I could go Early Chorus Back to the grind Verse 2 Out here, in the blackened night You can hear the thunder, roaring from a distant land Don't try to hide... Innocence, is a virtue, you know it can't be found... Run for your life PreChorus Don't get caught Don't get caught I must go Chorus Back to the grind Grind… Crime to survive Back to the grind Fight to survive Solo {harmonies} Verse 3 The fun has ended, I've got no money, gotta find a job now Where do I begin Need to find some more time because I've got to have this guitar now, yeah Will you watch my back (shit) PreChorus I must go Chorus Back to the grind Grind… Crime to survive Gonna do the time… Back to the grind Fight to survive {repeat}

Get Out 03:43
C’mon c’mon… Verse 1 Feel the music, its a krank'n These walls yea are, just a shak'n I'm a servant to this God And that will always remain... PreChorus No way to turn it down... Chorus I kill for it... Get out (shouts) I live for it... Every day I play in it... Get out (shouts) Never will you understand... Verse 2 Get out of my house, she says Your a rottin your brain Drinking & partying, evil shame... I don't need this pain PreChorus Now I'm on my own... And I like it… Chorus I kill for it... Get out (shouts) I live for it... Every day I play in it... Get out (shouts) Never will you understand... [SOLO] Verse 3 It's so much better now, walking the streets I got no place to hide Who can I terrorize, who is next I'm on the wild side PreChorus Now I live to roll...

Every day I play in it... Get out (shouts) Never will you understand...

Intro I know a place, with no more troubles... Only takes a minute to find... You can leave tomorrow any hour Ready for the time of your life? Verse There's no turning back any longer Your past life will soon be blind All of your troubles and all of your fears Take away what has brought you down PreChorus On top of the world... I'm on fire On fire… Verse I've got a fever raging hundred and ninety My blood is boiling through the bone There's too much to take in, and too much to see, Cries of joy raining on me Chorus On top of the world... I’m on fire, it's my desire I'm hungry for more Hungry Hungry for more {repeat} Verse Sheltered from the world as a child from birth For much too long You’ve got no idea what your missing in life Step aside tonight Chorus On top of the world... I’m on fire, it's my desire Hungry for more Hungry Hungry, I’m hungry {repeat} I need more… Just give me more… No it’s not enough…. Oh yea… {outro}

Verse 1 I'm sick off the pain inside, but it always seems to follow me I'd be lost without all your bitterness... It should not be this way, they say nothing will come easy If I could change the world I would do it for you... PreChorus Every night I cannot sleep, I'm just thinking about this grief I'm a fool for putting up, these reasons I just can't think Chorus Keep me alive... Don't turn you're back on me, A fool, you're right... We're all just suckers for love... Keep me alive... Don't turn you're back on me, A fool, you're right... We're all just suckers for love... Verse 2 We keep on fighting, we keep on playing this game... Who will lose and who will win... PreChorus The human mind likes to torment us, if you allow it to Maybe one day we will learn to recede... Chorus Keep me alive... Don't turn you're back on me, A fool, you're right... We're all just suckers for love... Keep me alive... Don't turn you're back on me, A fool, you're right... We're all just suckers for love... [SOLO] Break Banished, from the pain If you wanna you can get away from here… Sadness, will remain… But tell me why we keep standing still, so… Chorus Keep me alive... Don't turn your back on me, A fool, you're right... We’re all Just sucker’s for love... Keep me alive... Don't turn away, A fool, you're right... We're all just suckers for love... (repeat)
