Blogger’s Song Pick of Sunday

I can surely find good Dragonforce songs. Like many of their tunes, the English power metal group is able to come up with sonic keyboard playing added with the fury of guitar riffs.  On the other hand, solo shredding whether its double tapping from Herman Li or arpeggios from Sam Totamn, that music is no doubt amazing for anyone interested in power metal.

Blogger’s Song Pick of Sunday (Bikini Kill “Rebel Girl”)

For anyone that knows about the underground feminist punk rock movement “Riot grrrl,” Bikini Kill should be somewhat familiar.  One song this group is known for is “Rebel Girl,” a far-reaching catchy sound of feminist music blended with punk rock.  Blasted power chords are heard along with the feminism behind the music.

Get ready to have your head blown away by 90’s music, “Smells Like Teen Spirit” is on its way much like the harsh blizzard expected today.  Kurt Cobain’s distortion power chord and loud voice progression of the grunge era made him one of most iconic musicians of the 90’s along with groups like Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden.  Check the official song video below.

What Jimi Hendrix performed “All Along the WatchTower?”  Hell yeah!! It appeared in Bob Dylan’s 1967 album, “John Wesley Harding.”  The coverage of Hendrix performing “All Along the Watchtower” appeared on the final studio album “Electric Ladyland” of the Jimi Hendrix Experience group.  That song is one of Dylan’s and Hendrix’s finest attempt to create a track with rich melody.  An audio pice of “All Along the Watchtower” is available below.

Blogger’s Song Pick of Sunday (Symphony X “Sea of Lies”)

You just want to dip your body in water.  A clear business of fire guitar playing.  The New Jersey based group Symphony X has on song that might blow your mind away. Falling into the category of progressive music along with neoclassical/power metal, the band brings in similar music to that of Kamelot and Dream Theater.  With “Sea of Lies” released under third studio album “The Divine Wings of Tragedy,” guitarist Michael Romeo’s loud playing of neoclassical Yngwie Malmsteen and complex riff patterns  heard.  Although the band has not reached much popularity when compared to Dream Theater, the band has been able to still challenge the “Kings of Progressive Metal” over the last 15 years.  Symphony X by the way continues to grow popularity and hopefully they will when their album is supposedly released in Spring fo 2015.  You can listen to the song below.
