From my earliest memories of music, I’ve been fascinated by how it has changed so much over the years. Despite one of my earliest favorite bands being one of the most innovative bands at the time, The Beatles, even they couldn’t have imagined the wild styles and sounds bands would be creating now (and little did I know that there was someone named Frank Zappa even more innovative than them at the time either.) The inclusion of Symphonic music in Metal isn’t a new thing, but I find it especially striking in Extreme Metal bands. One of the bands I find that does it expertly is Septicflesh.
If you’ve made it to the end of the weekend…. pause for a moment to pay respect to fallen comrades, those who have been overcome by the mixture of heat and the demon drink.
The final day at 70000tons of Metal, the original World’s biggest heavy metal cruise, is always bittersweet
