Dream Theater – Honor Thy Father

Long time no see….

Life’s been really busy these days but I felt like sharing these post with you today.

I wake up at 5 a.m. everyday to go to work so, whenever I’m tired, coffee’s been a good pal 😀

The other day I was into some Mozart stuff when a friend from work sent me this song to listen to. No more coffee was needed. The smashing drums, the hard riffs…. pure energy! Got to love it


Have a nice week everyone 😉

The meaning of life

No philosophy and no Monty Python. I just woke up this morning with Offspring‘s (a debut in the blog, by the way) song in my head and I decided to share with you. Hope it gives you energy for the rest of the day 😉

New acquaintances

These past few weeks, I’ve been discovering new music. American, British, Dutch, French, German, Norwegian, Portuguese and Swedish bands have passed by my ears, spanning the last 4 decades of music from classical to metal, from electronic to progressive.

A band that has caught my attention is Anathema. They started in the early nineties as a doom metal band, but their sound has since evolved to a kind of melodic, ambient alternative/post/art rock that I really like!

I still have much to discover from them, but this song stands out:

It reminds me of a heavier Radiohead (the good stuff, not like this), but they have their own touch – Do not consider them a Radiohead rip-off!

Hope you liked it! Next time I’ll be here with more stuff that I’ve recently discovered in my quest for new music. That, or maybe a re-edition of one the posts I enjoyed most doing, Astounding Songs, Amazing Covers (pun intended)…

Believe in love!

ScorpionsNice title, don’t you think? Not an original idea, though. I stole it from the Scorpions‘ song that I’m going to post here today (sorry for spoiling :P).

Don’t know if I told you so before, but I am a huge Scorpions fan. Many of their songs are among my all-time favourites, I’ve seen them live twice (too bad I was young enough and a pop-listener when they recorded their Acoustica in Portugal). And although I do not know all their discography, I find myself constantly finding new amazing songs among their albums.

The last one was “Believe in Love“, a typical simple Scorpions song that I find quite powerful and soulful. Hope you like it too and that you keep believing in love, because it’s usually worth it 🙂 Have a nice weekend! 😉
