To The Metal!
Ben here! Sorry I haven’t posted in forever and a half, but my internet time has been consumed by another task recently. Namely, downloading music.
Now that the band is actually semi-underway, I’ve started noticing things when it comes to music I’ve never noticed before. For example, despite all it’s hype, I just dismissed Hammerfall’s “Hearts on Fire” as another generic power metal anthem the first time I heard it. Now that I’m actually participating in real practices though, I can detect the more subtle nuances a song easier. Now that I’ve listened to “Hearts on Fire” again, it’s become one of my favorite Hammerfall songs. (Though it’s STILL nowhere near “Any Means Necessary”. Or even “Natural High” for that matter.)
So now that I’ve apparently matured *cough cough* as a metalhead, I’ve been going back over bands I’ve already listened to before and finding new favorites hidden in songs I previously hated.
Where exactly am I getting all these songs, you ask? Limewire. (Oh, what? It’s not as if that can possibly let anything worse than @ in…)
Anyway, enough of my ramblings. It’s almost time for band practice. I still need to find a bass for Avak too…
