THE MIGHTY ONE have just released their brand new record “The Torch Of Rock And Roll”, on March 26th via S.A.O.L Music, an unparalleled, uncompromisingly heavy rock album about the victories and defeats, the gains and losses, the ups and downs in the life of a true rock’n’roller.
Two prior albums have pathed the way for a result, which – while being a brutally straight and honest album – is The Mighty One’s most complex and refined output so far. Reflecting upon a life dedicated to heavy music, filled with awe-inspiring moments, with power trips and the heartfelt losses that such a commitment brings, it already hauls the load for a dramatic rock and metal opera. And since we all know that no such piece would get away without a relatable protagonist, Tim Steinruck reached out into his own past in order to put a youngster and his coming of age journey right where the protagonist of the album’s title track belongs: front and center. The fan and dreamer that built upon his dreams – and boy do dreams burn!
The title track of The Torch Of Rock And Roll tells the real life story of said boy who happened to fall in love with KISS, the dreams he had and the will to make them come true to a point of eventually signing a management/record deal with his idol Paul Stanley. It’s also a story about the moment when a fiery heart realizes that all the ill-fated things its owner has gone through have just been a matter of synchronicity rather than fate. A truly recognitial moment and the spark that lit his lifelong fire of purpose. Here are the lyrics to accompany the brand new single and teaser for the music video.
