Avenged Sevenfold.

Avenged Sevenfold
Introducing to you, Avenged Sevenfold (: This band is highly known by many people around the world. Either to metal heads, rocker or skaters or to the unknown people! It's a really popular band. I, myself, love the lead singers vocals, the guitar and even the drums! I love it all! I think of this being the perfect band. 

I've recently downloaded their new album "Nightmare", and I must admit that I'm in love with it! xD The reason I love it mostly is because of their song "So far Away." This song is just really touching and seems to also remind me of their other song to be "Dear God."The song surrounds about people that he cares about and that why'd they have to go to a far away place? I think its a nice song. The lyrics really get to me and I recommend it!


"Puscifer" is a band created by lead vocalist from the band "Tool." The lead singer is known to be a Maynard Keenan. Yes, I've spoken of him before (: (Note: Check back to A Perfect Circle in previous blog  post. ) Well, today I'll be talking about his song called "Pray." The reason I enjoy this song is because of the vibe Keenan gives in his song. Its also a very sexual song! It's not something that you usually get in metal bands such as his but in this one, the vibe he gives gets this feeling of excitement!

Jesus is risen, it's no surprise
Even he would martyr his mama,
To ride to hell between those thighs
(Who wouldn't?)
The pressure is building
At the base of my spine
If I gotta sin to see her again
Then I'm gonna lie and lie and lie...

I do recommend this band and this song. It will really captivate you and intrigue you. I promise you that it will remain in your head and repeat over and over again! ;D


This is a new song that I've heard from Katatonia(: It's a really nice and melancholy type of song. It captivates me and I love the electric guitar riffs and the drums solo. It's really energetic. The lyrics are deep and get you this sense of mysterious. Check out a small piece of it!

The dark will rise
Abandon your freedom
Give up the right to find the true self
Forsake your own reasons 


(: The reason I would tell you to hear this song is because I do think you would love it if your into really dark and metal type of music. No, you don't have to listen to it but it's a recommendation from me to you. I do believe you'll like it. I hope you guys have a really nice day!

Hello everyone(:
I'm here to talk about Paramore today. This band consists of the vocalist Hayley Williams. I'm in love with her vocals! xD They are so awesome! There first debut single to arrive on air was " Missery Business." 

Their songs are usually just pumped with great themes such songs "Brick by Boring Brick" and then they have their slow moments such as "Only Exception." I think personally that, "Only Exception" has a great melody. I think the lyrics above all are what really get to me. It's personally talking about love and how she knew she (Hayley) would never fall but things turned around and she fell for someone making them her "only exception." 

Cute huh? I think so. I personally recommend this band to everyone and the above songs.

New Music; Introduction to Katatonia!

"Katatonia" is a Swedish metal band that has just recently released an Ep (Extended Play) which is known as, "The Longest Year."  The songs that I really like from this band has to be "My Twin" and "I am Nothing." What I love about this band is their really dark melodies. They give you a melancholy tone but yet, it's vibrant. Their lyrics are great. A sample being:

"My Twin"
You used to be like my twin
And all that's been
Was it all for nothing
Are you strong when you’re with him
The one that’s placed you above us all...

What I love about this song is that they begin slow with the lead vocalist beginning with the saddest tone and as soon as it hits the chorus, the beat becomes alive and huge! The drums and guitar being he most hearable and contagious sound. (: You should listen to this band! It's great!

Street Sweeper Social Club.

"Boots Riley and Tom Morello make an exceptional duo!" 

Street Sweeper Social Club is a band created by Boots Riley and lead guitarist from a band called Rage Against the Machines, Tom Morello, as a project of expression. Both these men have joined together to create a metal sound, usually their songs and lyrics to talk about the homeless and the life outside the world we live in. 

A song that I truly enjoy from this band, has to be their song known to be as "The Oath."

"The Oath"
I pledge
To get their foot off my neck
I shall demand my respect
I'll fight
Even if I won't win
The beginning is the end
I pledge
To make the bosses cringe
Instead we'll get some justified ends
I'll fight
Til the system is gone
This ex-losers song...

To me this song refers to how our world currently lives. I believe that the lyrics are usually telling us about how people are getting stepped on by the people in the higher chairs. To me, it's about revolting and rebelling for what is right. This song has many meanings behind it, and it's whatever you like to choose as it's hidden meaning. (:

A Perfect Circle in Concert!:D

"Maynard is back with APC and this is a MUST SEE SHOW!!!!" 

I was online just now on 98.7 F, which if you do not know is radio station for Rock-A-Holics. I was just looking around, checking their calendars and upcoming events. One thing that caught my attention was that A Perfect Circle will be playing November 8th in Hollywood! :D 

If you do not know of  the band A Perfect Circle, it is made of the lead guitarist and vocalist Maynard Keenan.  He is apart of a band known to be as TOOL and is in different bands, those being his own projects he has developed over the years. He belongs to A Perfect Circle and to another being Puscifer. He is a really talented man who goes into Alternative Rock and Alternative Metal and goes deep into his music. 

He is a really known man and knowing that he will be playing in Hollywood just makes me get pumped! (: I wish I could attend the show, but sadly, I have other things to assist too. I hope to see them perform again. or soon.
