Even though I don’t listen to much of their music, ‘Lost’ by Within Temptation is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard.
Wow. ‘Victims of Contingency’ is spectacular. It sounds like it would be one of the favorite tracks off Epica’s ‘The Quantum Enigma;’ So stoked! :)
People that think Taylor Momsen is hurting women in the rock genre and that The Pretty Reckless is holding back female-fronted bands from being successful are dead wrong. The Pretty Reckless is breaking ground for women in rock right now. Heaven Knows is currently #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock charts right now. Halestorm’s Freak Like Me is the ONLY other song by a female fronted band to top the chart in 25 years. If anything, she’s proving that women CAN be successful in a genre dominated by men, not preventing them from doing so.
I love Gwyllion’s The Edge of All I Know album…but sometimes I feel like I’m the only person in the world that has heard it. Actually, I probably am…a great and very underrated Symphonic Power Metal album.
Cristina Scabbia and Sara Squadrani are both so amazing on Ayreon’s The Theory of Everything album.
To hear that one of the Juliet Simms hate blogs is deleting is some of the BEST news I’ve heard recently. People rarely think about their legacy and what they are putting into the world, and kindness is the best legacy. Her haters are way too invested into every detail of her life, and people will never get any of that time back. I’m glad at least one hate blog realized what they are doing and apologized.
I almost cried listening to You Would Have Loved This by Tarja, as it reminded me of someone who passed away. She always loved the snow and the winter…
I never really listened to Halestorm, just one song here and there. Now I did, and OMG “The strange case of..” is just AMAZING! I can’t stop listening to it.
It would be awesome if Evanescence and Paramore did a cover of Hallellujah
