Aussies got rhythm!

Sleepy KoalaAs promised in my last post, we continue our journey through the world. This time, we’re visiting the great country of the joyful kangaroos and fluffy koalas. However, I’m going to show you that, unlike the cute koala on the left, Aussies do got rhythm!

In this post I’ll write about the great rock & roll band, led by the skinny-legged eternal schoolboy Angus Young, the lead guitarist for AC/DC – who deliver the purest form of electricity – music!

You’ll be thunderstruck when you hear the next video…

Amazing, huh? Seeing all that people jumping  to 60-year-old rockers is not something you see everyday, even in the great city of Buenos Aires!

And what about this next song (probably my favorite, after thunderstruck)?

These guys really have rhythm, don’t you agree? They also have very sexual lyrics, but I’ll leave that to another time… 😛

Hope you liked it! 😀

Judas Rising [Part 2/4]

(continuation of part 1/4:

…my second note of appreciation goes to Pedro Lourenço (also an author of Cacophonic Euphony). As you’ve already seen by now in his cacophonic corner, his musical scope goes way beyond the average and maybe someday he’ll share with us some of his own work… *hint hint* 😉

He made me an open-minded music consumer, introducing me to a brand new, black and thrilling world!
Six years ago I asked him for some music suggestions and suddenly I jumped from country/pop/rock music into heavy metal and hard rock.
In the beginning it took me some time to adjust to this new kind of music with all those aggressive riffs, wild solos and screaming lyrics, but soon I let myself go and I’ve never stopped ever since!

Thanks for Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Moonspell, System of a Down, Metallica and all those great bands you once thought I was ready to meet! 😀
Along with all the dark stuff he also introduced me to the best group the Earth has ever seen, The Queen (the entire discography!!).

I reckon this music genre is not well accepted in general so click on the images below at your own will, if you’re in the mood for some aggressive-energetic songs.

I can’t explain my addiction of heavy metal, nor will I try to convince anyone into it, but I believe those who like it understand the rush and thrill that has the power to either pump or ease heart beats that I’m talking about.

But life isn’t just black or white, dark or bright. For more colorful songs wait for the next post: Dreams of a Journey [Part 3/4]
See you soon 😉
