12 Stones – World So Cold

Hello there! Today I’m doing a post on the song World So Cold by 12 Stones. The song was published on the album Anthem For The Underdog in 2007. You can check out the lyrics here.

I think this song is very beautiful and something to think about. The lyrics are sad but good, dealing with the evils of the world. The song starts out slow and builds up as the song goes on to “There’s a sickness inside you that wants to escape” and so on, which I think is a brilliant part. The strings make the song more dramatic and lifts the song quite a bit. Paul’s voice is great, showing that he’s not just the heavy rock kind of guy. Yes, I like this song very much, and it reminds me to forgive and not to hate.

 

“It starts with pain followed by hate
Fueled by these endless questions no one can answer
A stain covers your heart and tears you apart
Just like a sleeping cancer”
(World So Cold – 12 Stones)

12 Stones – Infected

Hey! This time I’m doing a review of the song Infected by 12 Stones off the album Beneath The Scars, published February this year (2012). Here are the lyrics, as well as in the cool lyric video below:

 

This is a really good rock song! Very catchy, got it stuck on my brain all day long yesterday and today.  The guitar riffs are awesome, I especially liked the intro very much, and the solo is awesome too. The riffs sounds almost creepy, and they’re heavy but not dragging you down, if you know what I mean. The lyrics are cool and strong. Not directly negative, just aggressive and pushing forward, and kind of looking for a solution. Paul McCoy’s voice is just straight out a rock voice, a little rough, but still clear, really enhancing the lyrics well.

 

“I feel weak, I feel numb
Had enough of this poison we’ve injected
Living in this world infected”

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing a song by the band 12 Stones called “Welcome To The End”. It was released in 2010 on the EP “The Only Easy Day Was Yesterday”. The lyrics are both in the video, and here.

 

 

I sort of already knew that 12 Stones was a good band, because Paul McCoy, the vocalist, featured with guest vocals in “Bring Me To Life” by Evanescence. Well, at least I knew that they had a good vocalist, the rest I had to check out.
Pretty awesome song. It sort of has an attitude. Especially in the end of the end of the refrain; “We’ve finally reached our bitter end – Welcome to the end”.
The riffs are good too. Playing in general is great. It doesn’t stand out that much, but I like it. It rocks, and that’s enough. It’s really grown on me, sort of gets better and better. And the refrain is catchy. That’s hard to find in a rock song, actually.
I’ve reached the end…

Hey There! Now it’s time for my first real post at this blog, and I choose to start this blog with writing about my favourite song, Bring Me To Life by Evanescence. (You can find lyrics here)

(I’m just throwing in the video for reference, so you don’t have to search for yourself, there are so very few who bothers anyway.)
The video is greatly directed, but the quality is poor. I couldn’t find any better, and I’m lazy, so I didn’t bother to look for something that I’ve spent hours looking for earlier. Now I’ll stop bothering you with my random writing and cut to the chase.

I really love this song, and it is one of the most popular Evanescence songs. It is from their first real album, Fallen, which was published in 2003. I love this song because of its meaning. Amy Lee, the vocalist, is telling us to do something with our lives before it’s too late. I think that is a great message, and the way she is getting the message across to us is wonderful.

I love the way the song builds up from the slow start, with beautiful piano and soft vocals, into the rough guitars and strong voice of Amy. The song also features guest vocalist Paul McCoy from 12 Stones. Originally it was intended to be without a male voice, but since it was made the soundtrack of the movie DareDevil, the producers felt it would be more of a hit with some male contribution, since the movie is more of a guy-movie (kind of sexist, if you ask me!).
Anyways, it turned out to be great, but I really like the two demo-versions too, both with awesome guitars instead of the part where they sing “All of this time, I can’t believe I couldn’t see, kept in the dark, but you where there in front of me” and so on… You can listen to the two demo-versions on The Evanescence Reference.

Well, as I will try to do, which I also have done with my other blog, I will finish the post with a quote from a song, and naturally I will quote Bring Me To Life this time. I usually choose something that I can relate to with my own life. Here it goes…
