Tag Archive: Axel Rudi Pell


Greetings, dear readers!
I am so incredibly happy and excited! I’m going to this year’s Graspop Metal Meeting. I finally get to see my all time favorite band, Evanescence! Not only that, but I’ll be staying for the whole festival, and get to enjoy bands like Axel Rudi Pell, Five Finger Death Punch, Rammstein, Alter Bridge, Epica and In Flames. On that occasion, I’ve made a playlist with the bands that I’m definitely going to see. You can find the list here on Spotify. I will of course see a lot of other stuff, but my main goal is to see these bands. The festival is from Thursday 15th to Sunday 18th, so it will be four days of pure metal epicness. Please let me know what you think of the list, and which other bands you think would make for an incredible memory.

Hey! It’s been a month since I last posted. I’ve thought a lot about writing something of finishing something I’ve already started, but I never got around to it. Now, I have a new idea! I “waste” a lot of time on a meme website called 9GAG. Right now, someone’s started a trend of making a list of “need to know” songs and putting their list on 9GAG. I thought I should hop on the train and make such a list of my own. The first one that started this trend (that I noticed, at least), had a rule not to include more than one song per artist/band, and so I wanted to do the same, but realized that it was too difficult for some bands, so I only tried to not include too many. I will just dive right into it, with no arrangement to the order in which I list the songs I feel you need to know. (of course this will be mainly rock/metal, since that’s my forte, but I might include some other songs as well, if I feel like you really need to know/listen to them).
I’ve made the list in Spotify, so you can go in and have a listen right away. Might get back to this post later and make a YouTube-playlist of it as well, but for now Spotify will have to do.

There’s just a handful of these songs that I don’t know every single word to, but they still evoke something in me that makes me think everyone should hear them. These songs are iconic to me, representing the band, the genre and the time period they were produced in perfectly. A few of these are covers, but I included them because they are so good that I feel they both do justice to the original artists and the songs, in addition to the covers being iconic themselves.

Links to the two lists that I found already, there are some very good songs in there, and some I have yet to check out.

Am I missing something obvious to you? Would you perhaps replace the song I’ve chosen by a(n) artist/band? What would be your most iconic/”need to know”-songs? Please let me know in the comment section.

“So paint it black and take it back
Lets shout it loud and clear
Do you fight it to the end
We hear the call to
To carry on
We’ll carry on”
(Welcome To The Black Parade – My Chemical Romance)

“I raise my flag and dye my clothes
It’s a revolution, I suppose
We’re painted red to fit right in”
(Radioactive – Imagine Dragons)

Axel Rudi Pell – Glory Night

Second day of the callenge, hell yeah!
Today’s song is Glory Night by Axel Rudi Pell. Published on the album The Crest in 2010.
Lyrics here, and song below:

 

Really great! I can’t actually believe that I don’t listen more to Axel Rudi Pell than I do! Of course, I’ve heard this song before, but I haven’t really sat down with just the song, and listened to it and enjoyed it.
Unfortunately, this is one of those songs that is brilliant, but so hard to say something about. I like the vocalist’s voice, and the lyrics are really good. A real love song, for sure.
There is one thing I have to say, though.
I worship that guitar solo. The guitar playing in general. Wow. That’s all I have to say.

“No storm, no dark clouds can tear us apart
You’re the chosen one deep down in my heart”
(Glory Night – Axel Rudi Pell)

Challenge…

Hi there!
Busy, busy, busy, but I have decided that I want to challenge myself on this blog, so I asked my friends to give me a list of songs that they want me to write about. A bit of a challenge for them too, obviously, cause I haven’t got all the lists yet, but I got one, and I will start with it today. Since my dear friend knows this is a challenge, she decided to really give me something to wrap my brain around to write about. Really challenging, it is! (Okay, I’m well aware that I’m over-using the word “challenge” now, but that’s simply what it is, a challenge).
Anyways, here’s the 5 songs I’m going to write about for the few next posts:

1. Avenged Sevenfold – A Little Piece of Heaven
2. Axel Rudi Pell – Glory Night
3. The Lonely Island – Shy Ronnie 2: Ronnie & Clyde feat Rihanna
4. Nicki Minaj – Super Bass
5. Lil’ Wayne – How to Love

That’s a nice mixture from her very varied music taste. She actually wrote “Helloween – Mr. Torture” for second place, but I’ve already written about that song, as some of you may know, and actually mentioned in the post that I think of my friend when I listen to it! Anyways, she had to pick another song, so she chose Lil’ Wayne – How To Love. Like that song, so I don’t mind, but it would have been easier to write about Mr. Torture

Well, can’t promise you that I will start today, but if I don’t, I will start tomorrow, after 8 O’clock, the deadline, when I’ve finished my History assignment and delivered it one minute to 8… Haha – not kidding.

The end is soon to come
Sick of it all”
