Hey there! So, suddenly inspired and after checking that I didn’t do anything with this song before, I chose today to write about Weight Of The World by Evanescence. The song was published on the album The Open Door in 2006. Here are the lyrics. Listen and enjoy.

 

The intro is really rocking and cool, and I like the sound of Amy’s voice when she sings “Feels like the weight of the world, like God in heaven gave me a turn”, it sounds almost distorted, I think it’s really cool. I also like the choir, especially in verse two, the wailing sound fits the song perfectly. Amy’s vocals are rocking this song, and the most awesome feature in this song is the incredible falsetto voice she goes into towards the end, and what’s more incredible is that she does that live as well! The whole song is influenced by the attitude in Amy’s voice, just awesome. The lyrics are a little dark, and seems even darker by the sound of the song. The riffs are rocking too, and the drums… you hear it even better in the live version how cool it is. It’s brilliant.
So, here is a live version of the song from Rock In Rio 2011, hope you enjoy this as well, it’s such a great performance.

 

“Feels like the weight of the world
Like all my screaming has come unheard”
(Weight Of The World – Evanescence)

Hi there! I know, it’s been too long, but it’s been a crazy busy May with spring celebration and my first exam was today, so I hope you will forgive me…
Should have done this ages ago, but now I am, so today’s song is Be Still And Know by Machine Head. The song was published on the album Unto The Locust in 2011. Here are the lyrics (beware of some small errors), enjoy!

A dear friend of mine showed me this song, and I immediately fell in love with it.
The amazingly awesome guitar riffs are what caught my attention at first, and that’s what I like the most about this song. The song is rocking so hard, I can’t stand the urge to head bang a little. I mean, really, this song has some seriously heavy and cool energy.
The lyrics are deep and awesome, and I really like that it’s expressed in such a rough voice with such strong energy. Might be also that the drums and guitars are helping convey this awesome energy, or more likely, a combination of everything. (And yes, I know I’ve used that word a lot now, but can’t you feel it?!?) I just know I like this song very much, and wanted you all to hear this piece of awesomeness.

“Stars realign in the sky
Glaciers will melt and the oceans rise
Waves will come crashing ashore, but withstand the roar
And the sun will rise
Dawn will break the blackest nights
Distant in its glow
This shall pass, be still and know”
(Be Still And Know – Machine Head)
