The Meaning Behind The Song: Tribe Of Force by Van Canto
As a music critic and a die-hard fan of unconventional music, I am constantly on the lookout for songs that push the boundaries of what we consider traditional. One such song that has stuck with me for years is “Tribe Of Force” by the German a cappella metal band, Van Canto. I first heard this song on a playlist of obscure tracks, and from that moment on, I was captivated by its unique sound and empowering lyrics.
“Tribe Of Force” opens with the opening lines, “Emptiness is where I’m from, To nothingness the past has gone.” These words immediately set the tone for the song, conveying a sense of desolation and loss. It speaks to a feeling of being adrift, cut off from any sense of belonging or purpose. This sentiment resonates deeply with me, as I believe many of us have experienced moments of emptiness and isolation in our lives.
However, despite this initial despair, the song quickly shifts gears and embraces a more resilient outlook. The lyrics continue, “No matter what to bear I’m roaming on, Face the wind, let fires burn, Let coldness reign, I will not gurn.” Here, the songwriter acknowledges the hardships and challenges faced but refuses to be defeated by them. It encourages the listener to face adversity head-on and not be deterred by the harshness of life.
In the chorus, Van Canto sings, “The tribe of force is setting up again, Enemies retreating, The honest tribe defeating.” These lines evoke a sense of unity and strength in the face of opposition. It’s a rallying cry for individuals to come together, support one another, and overcome any obstacles that may come their way. This notion of community and resilience resonates deeply with me, reminding me of the power we possess when we join forces and stand together.
The song continues with the repetition of the chorus, highlighting the importance of unity and perseverance. It reinforces the idea that no matter how many times we may falter or feel lost, we must always gather our strength and try again. This message is poignant and relatable, as we all have moments when we question the purpose of our endeavors and whether they are worth pursuing.
When reflecting on “Tribe Of Force,” I am reminded of the countless times I’ve faced adversity and felt like giving up. This song serves as a uplifting reminder to keep forging ahead, to hold my head up high, and to never surrender. It empowers me to keep pushing boundaries, to stand tall in the face of challenges, and to embrace my own tribe of force – the community of like-minded individuals who share my passions and support my journey.
Van Canto’s “Tribe Of Force” is an anthem for resilience, unity, and perseverance. Its powerful lyrics, combined with the band’s unique a cappella metal sound, create a captivating and unforgettable musical experience. As I listen to this song, I am transported to a place where I feel a sense of belonging, where I am reminded of the strength within me, and where I am inspired to overcome any obstacles that come my way.
In a world that often feels relentless and overwhelming, songs like “Tribe Of Force” serve as a reminder of the power of music to uplift, inspire, and connect us. It encourages us to embrace our own tribe of force and to stand together in the face of adversity. So let this song be a battle cry for all who have ever felt lost or defeated – we are stronger than we think, and together, we can conquer the world.
