Hi there! Today it’s less than a week left till I’m going to Oslo again, to see Avenged Sevenfold live for the second time! This time, they will be joined by Disturbed and Chevelle! I’m really excited, and I think it will be great.
As some of you might remember, I went to see A7X in Oslo in November 2013, that time originally joined by Five Finger Death Punch and Device. Unfortunately for the fans, Device backed out of the concert because the son of David Draiman, vocalist of both Device and Disturbed, was born just a couple of months before the concert. However, we got to enjoy the Swedish talent of Avatar, which was (of course not as good as Device, but) a great replacement. The whole concert was amazing, and I hope and think this next one will be equally great.

In preparation of the concert coming up in less than a week (and a little late to the preparation, as I usually am), I have made a playlist on Spotify containing the entire discography of all three bands (of course, all that was available on Spotify, which is not all – among other things, the A7X album Diamonds in the Rough is not there) for me to listen to, which is close to 21 hours of playtime. I hope that by Thursday, I will have some clue of all the songs I could hear at the concert Friday. I haven’t listened as much to Chevelle before as I have to A7X or Disturbed, and I haven’t listened too much to the older albums of Disturbed either. I really hope this also can open my eyes to some new songs to listen to in the future as well.

Disturbed are still soaring on their success from their latest album “Immortalized”, released in 2015, while Chevelle and Avenged Sevenfold both released their latest albums, “The North Corridor” and “The Stage” respectively, in 2016.

So, to make this post more musical, and not all “news”, I wanted to add my current favorite song of all three bands:

Avenged Sevenfold – God Damn (The Stage)

Disturbed – The Light (Immortalized)


Chevelle – Got Burned (The North Corridor)

If any of my readers are going to the concert as well, or are going to a concert with these three bands in another country (or you just love these bands and want to listen to their music) you can check out my ready-made playlist here.

Blowing off steam

Hi there! I want to say first and foremost that I really appreciate my readers, and I hope I make it worth coming back to this site, because all of you make it worthwhile for me to write.

However, I write this blog mainly to share great music and to express myself in the way I know how – through music (which I can’t make myself). Today I want to blow off some steam, and yesterday I made myself a new Spotify-list that I decided right now that I want to share, because I’ve been pretty much happily head banging all day, and this list is what keeps me sane (in addition to my boyfriend) whilst writing on my Bachelor’s thesis. Here’s the link to the list on my Spotify-channel, and below is the actual list, in case you don’t have Spotify and want to make it yourself (in alphabetical order after artist and album):

  • Anthrax – The Devil You Know
  • Atreyu – Long Live
  • Audioslave – Show Me How To Live
  • Avenged Sevenfold – Critical Acclaim
  • Avenged Sevenfold – Unbound (The Wild Ride)
  • Avenged Sevenfold – Beast And The Harlot

  • Machine Head – Eyes Of The Dead
  • Machine Head – Take Me Through The Fire
  • Machine Head – Bulldozer
  • Machine Head – I Am Hell (Sonata in C#)
  • Machine Head – Be Still And Know
  • Machine Head – Pearls Before The Swine
  • Rage Against The Machine – Bulls On Parade
  • Rage Against The Machine – Killing In The Name
  • Slipknot – Sulfur
  • Slipknot – People=Shit
  • Slipknot – The Heretic Anthem
  • Slipknot – (sic)
  • Slipknot – Eyeless

This list is 60 songs (at the current time, at least!), and by Spotify’s calculations, 4 hours and 40 minutes of heaviness. No, I didn’t include Evanescence in this one, I thought some of my lists might repeat themselves if I were to include them in all of them. This one I decided to call “Heavy Shit”, and might be added to over time, and some songs might even be removed as well, so keep checking in. (I might forget to add to this “physical” list, but I will try to remember). This might be somewhat like my anger nurturing list, but mostly I added these songs for the great head banging-factor and overall heaviness (okay, I might be a bit angry and frustrated over my paper, and that’s why I need these songs, but they are awesome to listen to anyway). Would love for you to come with heavy suggestions too, if you think some songs are missing; I might even add them.

 

“Let the right one in
Ya gotta go with the devil you know”
(The Devil You Know – Anthrax)

“One
Nothing wrong with me
Two
Nothing wrong with me
Three
Nothing wrong with me
Four
Nothing wrong with me”
(Bodies – Drowning Pool)

“I find the answers aren’t so clear
Wish I could find a way to disappear
All these thoughts they make no sense
I find bliss in ignorance
Nothing seems to go away
Over and over again”
[…]
“I need a little room to breathe
Cause I’m one step closer to the edge
And I’m about to break”
(One Step Closer – Linkin Park)

 

Playlist: Super-excited

Hi there! As I was telling you in the last post, I have kind of taken a one-year (and then some) vacation from my blogging, and there is some things I’ve wanted to show you but haven’t gotten around to yet. I realize I never got to write about the Avenged Sevenfold concert that I went to November 2013. I can’t remember all the details now, so I’ll just say that except for almost passing out and getting stomped on by several mosh pits, it was amazing, and even better than I expected. They really are as good live as they are in the studio, and maybe even better. Their playing is impeccable.

So, abut this playlist: about two months ago, I was planning my return to the blogosphere, and after the past few months regaining my music excitement and inspiration, I made a playlist for myself of some of the songs I’ve gotten most excited about this past year-or-so. I will eventually blog about the songs that’s on this list, and some I’ve already blogged about, so don’t freak out that you haven’t heard them on this platform before. For now I’ll just leave this here for you to listen to and judge for yourselves.

  • Paramore – Now
  • Amy Lee (feat. Dave Eggar) – Lockdown
  • Audioslave – Show Me How To Live
  • Avenged Sevenfold – St. James
  • Machine Head – Now We Die
  • System Of A Down – B.Y.O.B
  • Korn feat. Amy Lee – Freak On A Leash (live)
  • Avenged Sevenfold – I Won’t See You Tonight Part 1
  • Disturbed – Stricken
  • Imagine Dragons – Battle Cry
  • Evanescence – If You Don’t Mind
  • Machine Head – Game Over (added to the list today because it’s stuck in my head, and I get excited by listening to it!)

I’ve made the list on Spotify, but with some of my local files that I’ve downloaded.
Here’s the link: https://open.spotify.com/user/catta_94/playlist/4FruvOaAr5DmbJ779jy7lm
I’ve also taken the time to make the playlist on YouTube for you.  https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLcBOQEQM17Cs9V2-qeqJ3yhlDM7UXWQbo

Well, just wanted to post something today too, so that I proudly can say I’ve managed to blog the entire week!
I thought I could post the link to Evanescence’s Valentine’s Day-playlist on Spotify, if you didn’t get a chance to hear it yet, so here it is, My Heart Is Broken (Evanescence + Fans Playlist) .


(The picture that won the Evanescence Valentine’s Day card contest)

I also thought I should mention that I will soon start on another challenge, so I’ll keep you posted – haha!

“I can’t go on living this way
And I can’t go back the way I came”
My Heart Is Broken – Evanescence)

Happy Halloween!

Hi there!
Well, it’s Halloween today, and I thought that since it’s a special day, and I’ve always liked Halloween, that I would blog twice today!
Have already posted a review on the song “Someone Like You” by Adele, but I thought, “It’s Halloween, and that song doesn’t fit the occasion very much”, so I’m making a playlist, made of songs that I think fits for Halloween:

Evanescence – Haunted

Helloween – Mr. Torture

Evanescence – Sweet Sacrifice

Avenged Sevenfold – Nightmare

We Are The Fallen – St. John

Linkin Park – Papercut

Evanescence – Whisper

Paramore – Monster

Three Days Grace – Scared

Avenged Sevenfold – A Little Piece Of Heaven

Evanescence – Your Star

Three Days Grace – Animal I Have Become

Avenged Sevenfold – Welcome To The Family

Evanescence – Sick

We Are The Fallen – Trough Hell

This list is made with the criterias:

  • Sound great
  • Have brilliant lyrics
  • Rock

Sorry if it’s not really varied, but that’s a mix of my favorite artists, so dig it or ditch it.

In addition, I’m quoting some of my favorite songs that I think fit this day perfectly.

 

“Long lost words whisper slowly to me
Still can’t find what keeps me here
When all this time I’ve been so hollow inside
I know you’re still there”
“Watching me, wanting me
I can feel you pull me down”
“Haunting you I can smell you alive
Your heart pounding in my head”
(Haunted – Evanescence)

“Welcome to the torture chamber
Said the sign above the entrance
Laughing as he takes you by the hand
Looking like a manic savage
Inside you can sense the anguish
Theatre of pain has just begun”
“Mr. Torture gives pain
With his whips and his chains
He knows just what you crave
Mr. Torture”
(Mr. Torture – Helloween)

“It’s true, we’re all a little insane
But it’s so clear
Now that I’m unchained”
“Fear is only in our minds
Taking over all the time”
(Sweet Sacrifice – Evanescence)

“You should have known, the price of evil.
And it hurts to know that you belong here, yeah
No one to call, everybody to fear.
Your tragic fate is looking so clear, yeah
Ooooooooh It’s your fuckin’ nightmare”
(Nightmare – Avenged Sevenfold)

“This night is alive with the smell of insane
It’s reaching for me and its calling my name
I beg for silence to drown out their weep
How did this asylum become where I sleep”
“All my Questions get no answers
Locked up tight from the world outside me
(No,No)
Mommy come get me out tonight
All my Questions have no answers
I can feel the fear inside me
(No,No)
Mommy come get me out tonight”
(St. John – We Are The Fallen)

Happy Halloween!
