I love music across all genres, but my main love is rock and metal. There’s something about loud music that just …calms me down in ways I can’t explain.
Recently my music of choice is from the band Halestorm. They have a song called I Like it Heavy that explains how I feel about music, especially theirs.
Some like beautiful, perfect and pretty
I see the good in the bad and the ugly
I need the volume one louder than ten
I put the pedal to the metal, needle into the red
If the windows ain’t shaking
Making my heart race
If I can’t feel it in my chest
I’m in the wrong damn place!
I got a demon in my soul and a voice in my head
It’s saying go, go, go! I can sleep when I’m dead
There’s a sonic revelation bringing me to my knees
And there’s a man down below who needs my sympathy
I got a ringing in my ears getting ready to burst
Screaming “hallelujah motherfucker take me to church”
I like it louder than the boom
Of a big bass drum
I need it harder than the sound
I love to crank it up
Make it thump
And evil to the core
Headbanging in the pit
Their music speaks to me a fuels my imagination to be able to feed yours.
Here is the link to the first song I heard by them. It’s called Amen. Have a look and a listen.
