MoreLijiang2019-12-09 13:59:21


This week, we gonna introduce a Chinese?Folk / Industrial Metal band: The Samans.?


Formed in 2006 in Changchun,?The band started as a two man electronic band with Nu-Breakbeat style. In 2007 they officially appeared on the stage, meanwhile their music style change from Nu-Breakbeat and EBM with some metal elements to Industrial metal and Alternative metal.



Now, The Samans has growed from a 2 members team to the current 6 members team: Lifu Wang - Frontman/Songwriter, Yaxin Gao - Programming/Samples, Zhichao Ren - Lead Guitars, Xiaoyu Zhai - Rhythm Guitars, Ji Qi - Bass, Chenglin Ji - Drums/Percussions.



As a Chinese band, they came up with the Chinese name first: 薩滿, which means "Shaman", however, when it comes to the English name, since all the team members are born and raised up in China, they choose to use "Saman" instead of "Shaman" to show their nationality and background culture.


The band has released 3 EPs and 1 album so far. In 2009, they released their debut EP album “Weltreich”.?


Moths to the flame we are
Burnt to ashes left no scars
Like a crack of dawn in the dark
Till all the senses drift apart
Moths to the flame we are
Side by side with our brothers in arms

Let the rhythm lead the charge
Shed our blood on every boulevard
I owe myself to this melody
Martyrs of our generation we shall be
With your cheers with your curses with your sweat and tears
This song will ever live for all eternity
Moths to the flame we are
Burnt to ashes left no scars
Like a crack of dawn in the dark
Till all the senses drift apart
Moths to the flame we are
Side by side with our brothers in arms
Let the rhythm lead the charge
Shed our blood on every boulevard
I owe myself to this melody
Martyrs of our generation we shall be
With your cheers with your curses with your sweat and tears
This song will ever live for all eternity


Have you ever
Ever done this in your life
Now I wonder
Wonder if you did it right
Write your father
Tell him you are about to die
Be a soldier
Let the bullets get you fucking high
Don't believe her
Every promise equals lie
Look in mirrors
See the flame burns in your eyes
Doesn't matter

If you ever chose a side
Now whatever
Get your self something to fight
Death march
We are all forced to go
Death march
As we all have been told
Death march
Let the fear takes control
Where you are heading you are never allowed to know
Have you ever
Ever done this in your life
Now I wonder
Wonder if you did it right
Write your father
Tell him you are about to die
Be a soldier
Let the bullets get you fucking high
Don't believe her
Every promise equals lie
Look in mirrors
See the flame burns in your eyes
Doesn't matter
If you ever chose a side
Now whatever
Get your self something to fight
Death march
We are all forced to go
Death march
As we all have been told
Death march
Let the fear takes control
Where you are heading you are never allowed to know
Death march
We are all forced to go
Death march
As we all have been told
Death march
Let the fear takes control
Where you are heading you are never allowed to know


In 2011, the band released their second EP album "Khan".


Burn it down Burn it down
Fire and brimstone
Every piece of land
Every thing I've ever known
Bring it on Bring it on
Flesh,blood and bones
Reap it all
For the world of sin is overgrown
Take it now Take it now
No matter dead or alive
No one's innocent
All to be purified
Shout it out Shout it out

It's just the birth pangs
For a kingdom of the Son
To rise and thrive
Another Sodom after one Gomorrah
You can see the world falling with your own eyes
Apocalypse is near and this is his reply
Now it's time to end it all by the scythe of the Reaper
So dance with me
In the field of Armageddon by the budding fig tree
Grim reaper
Of tares and wheat is coming
Thou shalt believe
Reaper
So dance with me
In the field of Armageddon by the budding fig tree
Grim reaper
Of tares and wheat is coming
Thou shalt believe
Burn it down Burn it down
Fire and brimstone
Every piece of land
Every thing I've ever known
Bring it on Bring it on
Flesh,blood and bones
Reap it all
For the world of sin is overgrown
Take it now Take it now
No matter dead or alive
No one's innocent
All to be purified
Shout it out Shout it out
It's just the birth pangs
For a kingdom of the Son
To rise and thrive
Another Sodom after one Gomorrah
You can see the world falling with your own eyes

Now it's time to end it all by the scythe of the Reaper
So dance with me
In the field of Armageddon by the budding fig tree

Thou shalt believe

So dance with me
In the field of Armageddon by the budding fig tree

I saw the visions
I heard the prophet calling
There's one prediction
The House of Pharaoh's falling
By the burning bushes
My people knelt to pray

For hail and thunder
Now I know the history's gonna be replayed
Let go of my people

I'll take them with me now

Let go of my people
I'll take them with me now
March to the border
March to the sea
Wander through the desert where my promise land could be
March to the border
March to the sea
Beyond the horizon there's a realm of the free
March to the border
March to the sea
Wander through the desert where my promise land could be
March to the border
March to the sea
Beyond the horizon there's a realm of the free
People born to suffer
Under thrones and crowns
Bullets never pass you over
The tanks will crush you down
Nothing left in memory
No way to ease the pain
With righteous people suicided
Politicians gone insane
Let go of my people
I'll take them with me now

Let go of my people
I'll take them with me now

March to the border
March to the sea
Wander through the desert where my promise land could be
March to the border
March to the sea
Beyond the horizon there's a realm of the free
March to the border
March to the sea
Wander through the desert where my promise land could be
March to the border
March to the sea
Beyond the horizon there's a realm of the free
March to the border
March to the sea
Wander through the desert where my promise land could be
March to the border
March to the sea
Beyond the horizon there's a realm of the free
March to the border
March to the sea
March to the border
Wander through the desert where my promise land could be


In 2012, the band released their EP album "Whalesong".


Chasing waves by myself
in the ocean of endless sorrow
Making wishes that i will
find my herd tomorrow
52 Hertz of heartbreak
52 Hertz of heartache

Pacific deep is the loneliness that
drowned the child
(drowned the child)
Hey
Come along
Let's sing songs that no one'll ever understand
Blessing me I'll always be
Proud of what I am
Proud of what I am
Chasing waves by myself
in the ocean of endless sorrow
Making wishes that i will
find my herd tomorrow
52 Hertz of heartbreak
52 Hertz of heartache
Pacific deep is the loneliness that
drowned the child
(drowned the child)
Hey
Come along
Let's sing songs that no one'll ever understand
Blessing me I'll always be
Proud of what I am
Proud of what I am
Hey
Come along
Let's sing songs that no one'll ever understand
Blessing me I'll always be
Proud of what I am
Proud of what I am


another captain Ahab
another bloody deed
another hero blinded
by his wrath and greed
another pequod wrecked and
buried in the deep
another whale hunted
with blood stained the sea
I spit my last breath
for hate's sake
I spit my last breath
for the lives I take
I spit my last breath

for the sins I've made
and I'll never regret
never regret

In 2013, they released their album "Lionheart".



We haven't heard anything new from them since, but their old songs are enough for me to carry on, not that I don't wish for a new album though.?


Personally, when I first heard of the band and checked out some of the lyrics, I was like WTF. How come I never heard of them before? Their songs are just mind-blowing.



And you know what is better than their songs? Their live gigs!


I mean, listening to their song is already mind-blowing enough, but when you actually go attending their live gigs,? you can literally feel every drop of your blood is boiling in your vein,?it's just a whole new level of mind-blowing.


Next time you see they will do a live gig, don't hesitate, just go.
