One band, one word.

#1 Post by t.a.j. » 04 Jan 2010 00:43

Is it a simple thing to describe a band with one word. To capture something important about it, if only important to you, in such a tiny fragment of language? Will not such an expression, if indeed an expression it is, only gain meaning if the reader already knows the band in question?

Primordial: Tragedy
Blind Guardian: Fantasy
The Vision Bleak: Lovecraft
Blut aus Nord: Desolation
At The Gates: Helplessness
Dark Tranquillity: Drama
King Diamond: Horror
Tenhi: Winter
Ahad: Vastness

They say that there's a broken light for every heart on Broadway.
They say that life's a game, then they take the board away.
They give you masks and costumes and an outline of the story
Then leave you all to improvise their vicious cabaret...


Still the goddamn Batman.

You charge each other for the time and breath it takes to say 'good morning',
But the truth is slowly dawning -- things are getting out of hand,
We all pursue our shattered dreams along the roads to our own ruin --
Watch our empires sink and wash away like castles made of sand.
And so cast off the lies that are your lives and find the truth within.
-- Martin Walkyier

Also, Balrogs have wings.

A slight call afar is tempting me, like a whisper sweet or an awful scream; I cannot ignore what I've always been, I'm leaving again - one last time? in my little kingdom I can be what I really wanted to be... The wanderer
