My last entry would have been a folk ballad if not for this competition & may move that way later, but this is such a great sounding style I had to have a go.

Style is _BROKEN.STY (Broken Neoclassical Metal)
GuitarCustom Synth is Synth/Plugin Loaded

RealTracks in style: 1009:Bass, Electric, HardRockThrash Ev 085
RealTracks in style: 2336:Viola, Background, Pop Ev 085 (1TrackStringSection)
RealTracks in song: ~1029:Guitar, 12-String Electric, Fingerpicking Ev 085
RealTracks in style: 642:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm HardRockThrashHollow Ev 085
Loop in Song: AcousticDrumFullKit\Metal - gl_tomtoms100a ev16.wav
RealTracks in style: 2338:Violin, Background, PopLow Ev 085 (1TrackStringSection)
RealDrums in style: RockThrashHalfTimeEv16^9-a:Snare , Tom Groove , b:Snare, Open HiHat

Some background:
Between 1869 and the late 1930s, over 100,000 juvenile migrants were sent to Canada from the British Isles during the child emigration movement. Motivated by social and economic forces, churches and philanthropic organizations sent orphaned, abandoned and pauper children to Canada,some as young as 4years old.It was touted as a "Golden Bridge" to a better life, but many were ill treated and abused and all were separated from whatever family they had left and became indentured labourers and servants until adulthood. This song imagines what it must have taken to endure such a childhood.


Defiance

you`ve seen that colour
that colour before
when they tell you daddy`s gone
and you stare at the floor

you`ve seen that ice
that ice in their eyes
the men whe tell children
now you`ll work to survive

you`re sold by the devil
to the deep blue sea
as you plough another furrow
across that vast prairie

innocence will burn, burn, burn
in defiance

you`ve heard those whispers
whispers in the trees
the voices of your brothers
and sisters you had to leave

you`ve seen that colour
that colour before
in the the dawn of a new world
crossing your bridge of straw

innocence will burn, burn, burn
in defiance

all you feel as you kneel
a child ghost almost lost
do as you`re told burning cold
save your soul
in defiance

Anne-Marie,
Thanks for listening.
Yes, a sad and largely unrecognised part of Canadian history ... and children were still being shipped in this way from Britain to Australia into the 1960`s.

Hi Robert,

I thought you handled the subject matter very sympathetically with a suitably melancholy sound and lyrics.
You seem to produce interesting songs which always have something different about them. I enjoyed it.

Cheers
Rec

A sad song Robert, the sound of your voice really supports the message!
I believe I've heard this style before grin
Overall, good use of RTs.

Rec,

Many thanks for your listen and comments. I don`t do "dark" songs very much, but the metal style certainly helped get that melancholy feeling here.

Thanks Rob, I`m glad you liked the vocal and instrument mix.
The song was written after reading a book on survivors stories and then I happened on an old recording by The Sound, a great 80`s post-punk band and I thought "that`s the style"... so thanks to XtraStyles for coming close to that.
Of course I realised a talented guy had already made very good use of the style, but by then I was feeling quite, well, defiant!
