Pull the plug!

As I said in my previous post, I’ll pull the electricity plug and present some acoustic sounds today. Everybody knows a big rock band that has played an acoustic set sometime. Well, I know at least 5 😀

One of the interesting things in the so-called unplugged concerts is the way bands reinvent themselves in order not to lose the touch of the songs that only overdrive/distortion offers.

There are two bands that really transformed their songs while playing acoustic: Metallica and Nirvana

Amazing, huh? The last song is a cover of a David Bowie‘s song. Other acoustic concerts worth mentioning are Scorpions’ Acoustica or Moonspell’s Sombra.

Judas Rising [Part 2/4]

(continuation of part 1/4: http://wp.me/p2ldeO-7v)

…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 😉

PS: Feel the power of the drums in Judas Rising live song here.
