This is one of those bands that took me a while to pay closer attention too. (Probably because I was too busy listening to System of a Down and Wage War but that changed today.)
Wage War released a new single, therefore, I have another noteworthy tune to share. This song is constantly on repeat and when I'm not listening to it it's at least on my mind.
It's been a while since I've done a music post, so I thought I'd share the playlist I recently created. I have another metal playlist and I listened to it constantly, however, it had too many songs and I found myself skipping some of them. When creating playlists, I find it's usually best when I split them up into specific genres. Since there are so many subgenres of metal, it wasn't as specific as would like it to be.
There's only one more day left of November which means that it's about to officially be Christmas time. Alright, that's debatable. But I personally believe Christmas time starts on December 1st. Those of you who start decorating before Thanksgiving are crazy but I also respect your passion.
I have to be honest, I wasn't paying any attention to the lyrics until today. However, I'm glad I did. This song clearly expresses the struggles of battling temptations, addictions, and guilt. That's something that has been on my mind recently - chains, power, and confusion.
Somehow I forgot to do my music post on Thursday this week, so I'm making up for that today. I've come across a few new metal/rock songs that I think are interesting, other than that, nothing has been significant enough that I believe holds a deeper meaning to me. Enjoy!
This morning I noticed two songs in my metal playlist that I must've forgotten about over time. I assume I heard them once in the past, saved them, forgot about them, and now I'm re-discovering them today. Other than that, I haven't done much exploration this past week, and I've mainly been listening to the same music. (Tool, System of a Down, Korn, etc.)
September 25, 2015 was the day before Freedom Fest, so it was a day that I’ll never forget. To give some context, it had been months and months of planning which had led up to this point. Three years ago today was a Friday, it was a long day, and it was a day that taught me a lot about myself and who I am.
This past week has been pretty strange for both good and bad reasons. There were lots of sudden changes and random events that popped up into my life, so it’s been a bit chaotic. But in times like this, the music I listen to plays a critical role in keeping me grounded to my biggest priorities. It’s usually a matter of what music sticks at the moment, then, because it sticks, I can remember what matters most to me - because those things stick too. Lately, all I needed were these two songs.
“What's left to say, that's not already been said before? I don't feel hope anymore. What's left to say? Let it fade away. I gave up on you long before you gave up on yourself."
