My cousins rock and roll band was called Split Image and he wrote and sings this intense underrated and almost unknown heavy metal song called Dont Run Away that was released independently in 1985 and hes standing second over from the right within the first photo and second over from the left within the other photos...

Awesome bass playing,awesome drumming,awesome guitar work,awesome vocal performance,awesome lyrical message, awesome sound,awesome energy!

They almost made the big time and whenever i listen to this powerful anthem i really dont know why they didnt?

"So many pieces on the floor,your running away"

"This piece just doesnt fit anymore,throw it away"

God knows you did the best you could,avoiding mistakes"

"Dont sit there thinking your no good,got to relate,your starting to say yeah"

"Dont run away,i've seen it before,the pressure is on its way once more"

"Dont run away,you've got to even the score with a fight,dont run away"

"Years pass but i'm still far away,i dont know why"

"I feel i'm digging my own grave,case of do or die"

"Defeat aggressive prejudice,your under the blade"

"Those who scorn me may ignore me i still have my claim to glory"

"Listen to me,yeah,dont run away"

We never stayed in contact through the years and i never became his bands roadie so i dont know (*-*)

He use to come over the house all decked out with his cool clothes and even cooler hair telling us how a big tour as an opening act was soon to happen...

I definitely like their bands name and group logo Split Image and i've heard other songs by them and as much as i love soft rock from the 50s - 80s and beyond i'm still a die hard defender of the faith because i totally love the driving instrumental energy of heavy metal music...

Theres also was a use to be kinda close friend of mine (wearing the white shirt and vest and also singing) whos been in a locally successful long running band with what i think is an awesome group name Eva Braun and they would perform anywhere just notice them set up playing in a field near a parking lot somewhere around here...

I was, (am) a glam metal fan as well as the very heavy stuff. That was a great song! I searced for them and found this site. I think these guys stole their band name.

Definitely for sure and i really love the driving energy and self propelled force of that songs instrumentation and his powerful voice sounds amazing singing those awesome lyrics! and considering now how they were active then during a time period when that type of music was very popular i still often wonder why they were never able to advance their musical careers and maybe its because they and their songs just never received enough widespread radio exposure?

I really like the lyrics of Dont Run Away but theres just one line he sings before the guitar solo about two thirds of the way through shortly after the last line i posted above and i cant tell what the words are and i'm unable to find this songs lyrics on the internet although internet lyrics are notorious for being incorrect but maybe someone else can hear them more clearly than me and or find them elsewhere?
