THE SAVAGE LINE VIDEO (by Lunden Reign). Released on
This Veteran's Day weekend, 2013 for all veterans and their families.
The Savage Line is dedicated to the soldiers & families of The Chosen Company Battle of Wanat, Afghanistan ‘08 and all our soldiers still fighting in Afghanistan & sacrificing for our American rights & freedom. It is about the new front line of war, one that seems to almost never end. The powerful, haunting and driving music is a collaborative effort by Luis Maldonado, Lora G Espinoza, and Geoff Pearlman and produced by Luis Maldonado, mixed by Geoff Pearlman and mastered by Evren Goknar.
Nikki Lunden sings the efficacious and beautiful lead vocals as well as stars in the video (along with Lora G on guitar). Ana Lenchantin delivers the magnificent cello that weaves throughout the song and Morgan Young--the massive drums.
The haunting and heart-felt lyrics (see below) were written by Lora G Espinoza. Lora wrote primarily about a battle in Wanat, Afghanistan in 2008, however many in battle or have fought in battle say they relate to her lyrics. The Battle of Wanat occurred on July 13, 2008, when over 200 Taliban launched a deadly surprised attack. The position was defended primarily by United States Army soldiers of the 2nd Platoon, Chosen Company, 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment (Airborne), 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team. Nine American soldiers were killed and 27 wounded.
A documentary and film are being made about the battle called "Dealin' The Battle of Wanat." The film's producer, Frankie Gay, says The Savage Line will be included in the film. "The Savage Line" is dedicated to these men and their families.
The Savage Line video was directed and edited by Brenton Covington (DynamicFilm, LA) and video by: Austin Nordell on location at The Bronson Caves (The Batman Cave), Los Angeles, CA. Executive Producer for both the video and the music: Dennis Kennelly, Legends International Agency, Beverly Hills, CA
