Gary Dranow’s “Cry Of War”: A Fiery Hard Rock Anthem with A Message

Gary Dranow, hailing from Park City, Utah, has unleashed a pulsating hard rock anthem with his brand-new track, “Cry Of War.” This single is from his upcoming double album, “Never Give Up,” and it’s an absolute banger. Out Now!!!


Dranow who draws inspiration from legends like Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix, and Counting Crows, delivers a potent dose of hard rock and metal that’s bound to get your heart pounding. The electrifying guitar riffs and dynamic drumming are nothing short of spectacular.

The song deals with the masses fighting against war created by the ruling political classes and true liberation. Structurally the track harkens back to the glory days of heavy metal in the 80s, reminiscent of iconic bands like Judas Priest, Metallica, and Megadeth. The vivid lyricism in “Cry Of War” coupled with the powerful musical arrangement creates an atmosphere filled with anticipation and fervor. This track is an anthemic powerhouse, igniting a fire within its listeners.

Our song The Cry of War has been released in the Ukraine. It was immediately picked up by an Internet Radio station, FM Rock. Roman Burda, my Ukrainian agent, wrote an email to the biggest rock on air radio station Roks Radio. He was very pessimistic that they would reply. Not only did they reply but played during a news segment.

Dranow’s gritty vocal delivery adds another layer of intensity to the song, evoking memories of The Scorpions’ legendary vocalist Klaus Meine. “Cry Of War” doesn’t just entertain; it makes a powerful statement about the need for change and unity in a world plagued by conflict.

We are currently producing an all-Ukrainian version of the song that they have promised to give it a lot of air time.

With its hard-hitting sound and impactful message, it’s bound to resonate with fans of hard rock and heavy metal alike. Keep an eye out for “Never Give Up” because if “Cry Of War” is any indication, it’s going to be an unforgettable musical trip.

“Thank you for your support, thank you for not forgetting about us, and for writing songs which say to all, the whole world about what is happening in Ukraine!”
