Sons of War (Shadows and Nightmares)
Two Steps from Hell
A little bit of nice battle music to continue on with the new year. I might have to break down and buy an album at this rate. And the record companies think this produces more losses than gains.. right. I’d have never listened to these guys and just not bought anything were that the case.
Also known of course, as “Eaters of the dead.” Too bad they thought such a movie title would be too scary/repulsive and not sell.
Io there do I see my father
Io there do I see my mother and my sisters and my brothers
Io there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning
Io, they do call to me, they bid me take my place amung them
In the halls of Valhalla, where the brave may live.. forever
I was hoping to get an examiner article up today, but it needs review yet. So tomorrow hopefully and in the meantime here is a completely different instrumental. I haven’t had anything lighter on this list lately.
Back from an age of Metallica music that I enjoyed. Its interesting to see what a clean translation can be made into nearly pure classical from metal or related genres. I wonder if classical would’ve retained it popularity had it worked into a similar style earlier? Probably not, but it would’ve been neat for sure.
Ponty has always struck me as an interesting musician for sure, simply because there isn’t a tremendous amount of use of violins out there in more contemporary music. No vocals in this one, as with most of what I list.. there are actually 5 parts to the entire Mystical Adventures Suite.
