A Music Blog (#20: And now for something different)

A stranger song now; the band's certainly a bit weirder than others I've featured before.

And by that, I mean besides being a avant-garde metal band, they created have a fake history about how their songs attracted the ire of the church a few centuries ago, have consistently wacky song titles such as 'Poetic Pitbull Revolutions', 'Exit Strategy of a Wrecking Ball', 'Balrog Boogie' and 'Pink Noise Waltz' (never mind the album names!), and album art like this.

And they're Swedish! What's not to love? =p

At any rate, I feel their stuff is worth a listen, or rather a few listens (it grows on you). Here's one of them that I picked randomly!

Lyrics:
Spoiler:
I see them days are coming
We hear them roar
They'll bring the end upon us
And we will have no mercy no more
Then you'll search for your soul salvation
Our hands are bound
We cry out for direction
But only those truly lost can be found

Why won't you
Save them, oh let me save you
Heal them, I can heal you
Make them closer to your heart?
We can't just watch these walls come tumbling down
Why won't you save them, oh let me save you
Heal them, I can heal you
Make them closer to your heart?
We can't just watch these walls come tumbling down

In the final hour, you can cleanse your souls
By whispering "Hallelujah"
Now raise your hands, give praise to him
By singing "Hallelujah"

Saved from the cold, 'cause I can do without you getting praise where I go
There's a truth to be told,
And I don't want them to go

Why won't you
Save them, oh I want to save you
Heal them, Let me release you
Make them closer to your heart?
We can't just watch these walls come tumbling down
Why won't you save them, I will relieve you
Heal them, If you hear my praise
Make them closer to your heart?
We can't just watch these walls come tumbling down

Saved from the cold, 'cause I can do without you getting praise where I go
There's a truth to be told
But I don't want you to go
Pale from the fall, if that's your excuse then you'll never be called
There's a truth to be told
I just don't want it to show

Why won't you
Save them, oh I want to save you
Heal them, I can heal you
Make them closer to your heart?
We can't just watch these walls come tumbling down
Why won't you save them, mark my words
Heal them, I'll bless their souls
Make them closer to your heart?
We can't just watch these walls come tumbling down


See? Weird, yet pretty darn catchy imo. It has very nice moments of solo as well here and there, as do most of the songs. This was the opening song of their third album (they have three atm). More swing than metal, but then a lot of their songs are basically some strange beautiful mess of genres. It's got the likes of tango, and opera for instance in some songs. Some songs (mainly in their first album) also linked up nicely too (as in, two or three songs fit together like a larger arrangement).

I'm not quite sure how relevant that song title really was, but oh well. Lyrics can be neat at times too, but my main favourite with this is the music itself, and the fact this band keeps trying various things. They're one of those I listen to a lot, haha.

    Heh, I remember you introduced me to this band and their funny song titles and blend of swing, rock, and opera. I particularly like the solo guitar parts in this song.
