Parkway Drive have announced some details of the soundtrack for their upcoming Documentary called Viva The Underdogs, which also features three studio re-recordings of their tracks, but here’s the twist; they’ve been re-recorded in German!
They’ve released the first, ‘The Void’ which does translate to ‘Die Leer’.
The soundtrack on the Doc features 11 live recordings from Parkway’s headlining set at Wacken Festival in Germany last year, which will come with the fikkiwubg re-recorded German versions of: ‘Vice Grip’ (‘Würgegriff’) and ‘The Void’ (‘Die Leer’), and ‘Ire’ track ‘Shadow Boxing’ (‘Schattenboxen’).
On their German iterations of the tracks, ‘Winston McCall’ has shared:
“This was hands down one of the most unique projects we’ve undertaken. The idea of taking our songs and interpreting them through another language was a massive challenge, but considering the amount of time, love and support that has been shown to us over the years we wanted to commit to doing the project with full integrity. The result is every effort being made to translate the meaning, spirit, and conviction of these songs in a language that is not our own.”
He continued, “We hope the result helps to strengthen the connection this music creates. We offer you these songs out of respect and our heartfelt thanks for all the times you have sung them with us in their original forms. We hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed the process of creating them.”
Check out the German version of ‘The Void’ below.
