Wardance (Band Review)

0

Good early mourning devils & ghouls. 

Today we take a look at the band, Wardance. A band I stumbled upon randomly on Youtube and they caught my attention. The band is a Germanic Power/Speed Metal band from 1986 and is fronted by female front woman, Sandra Schumacher. I rarely take a look at power metal bands or like any female fronted bands. However, after giving this band a chance, I have to say her voice is rather catchy. It’s rough yet melodic at the same time that fits the instrumentation greatly. Another point is that the power metal from the 80s has a different sound than that power metal of today in a sense that it was heavier and not filled with women or men wailing to fast keyboard riffs. Sadly, there isn’t too much from this band. They have only one album out entitled, Heaven is for Sale which came out in 1990. Yep… 1990… when the metal “crash” was on the horizon due to whiny and greasy men in flannel. Fuck you greasy, flannel men! 

It’s a shame when a band with a great sound doesn’t have more than one album. Sucks even more when you get into the said album and you want to hear more from the band and they cease to exist. It makes me feel like I just lost a puppy or a kitten. Below I will share some of their songs for your enjoyment of German Accents and kick ass music.

Classical & Metal – Lovely Relationship

0

How many times have you heard that metal is “loud noise that’s talentless” ? I’ve heard it a lot. And, yes, the loud tones isn’t for everyone – but to say it’s talentless is quite petty. Today I came across two interesting videos on youtube when I was listening to some Bach on Metal Guitar. Check them out then read my thoughts below:

 

 

 

 

 

 

I don’t find making our forefathers music on electric instruments with a heavy sound is a disgrace. In fact, our “heavy” forefathers are metal for their day! Beethoven would most definitely be a metal artist if we was alive today! Even his “light” music is quite “heavy” on the emotion and playing! I thank the classic era for being one of the greatest fathers of metal! \m/ When I was a small girl, I would listen to classical a lot because my family lives together in one home – which included my grandparents who came here from Germany in 1952. I grew up listening to classical and swing music. As I grew older, I started to find metal. Through a new wave phase when I was a young kid to an Iron Butterfly obsession to only find Peter Steele and Ronnie James Dio to open my eyes to the world of metal. Classical music is what helps me feel and create. Classical music – the elements of it, are what a majority of new “metal” bands are missing. They are missing that OOOMPH to it. The heavy the dark the emotion. Bow down to the forefathers (one of them at least!) of heavy metal! And thank them all in their powdered wig glory. (I should buy one)

I am Demon. (Logical Rant)

0

Whilst looking upon youtube, my boyfriend stumbled upon a YouTuber that was attempting to analyze a song by one of our favorite bands. Instead of doing a well thought out researched analysis, she started to take the words as a personal attack on herself and her religious belief. Instead of realizing that the song was telling a story. After all, music is a form of entertainment, and the best songs tell us a story to strike up emotions.

After she did 2 parts of her “analysis” and calling people who follow metal music demonic and brainwashed imbeciles, she made a reply video for those that enjoy the music. She called us Demons, that she was against our legion, and how we’ve got serious issues because we don’t follow the gospel. This is what I said as a reply to her video:

Hello. I must say that I watched your Venom video and all I have to say is Wow! For one, I am a fan of the music – Metal has helped me through a lot in my lifetime, more so than religious extremism that is keeping people divided and conquered. The only reason someone has a “Demon” in them is because the “Demon” is the troubles within themselves that they fail to admit or face. Blaming a song for telling a story or a genre of music and calling them a “legion” of demons is pretty asinine. Chill.

I honestly, don’t normally comment on people’s videos, but I felt the need to say something. In her reply she “analyzes” the Venom website and starts talking about the pentagrams and the imagery of the band. Religious pushers like this woman, clearly are why so many people don’t want to discuss the religion. The type of person to judge someone without knowing anything and “damn” them to hell.

What I don’t understand, is that in her video she claims that if people don’t like her page, they should get off and concentrate on their life. Why doesn’t she take her own advice and go her way in life? I am proud to be a “demon” in her eyes. And it’s her extremism that makes me appalled. She claims to be a person of “God” yet she will spit on fellow brothers and sisters. She doesn’t follow the number one rule “Treat others how you want to be treated.”

Extremism always makes me rant because I don’t like to see people around me hurt without any true reason. They aren’t harming anyone. I have friends that follow a faith that still listen to metal music. Extremism is what will kill this beautiful country & world. Over a belief! A belief that is supposed to bring people together and unite!

The other thing that I don’t understand – Christianity adopted the pagan holidays into their ways — so they spit in the world of the pagans. Saying we need to be burned at stake and such. Again – EXTREMISM! People have too much time on their hands to be so cruel to another human being. In my eyes, you don’t attack someone and bully them into your realm unless you have a serious mental issue.

Having a faith or not having the faith isn’t the issue. When people are left alone without politics or the religion topic, we actually come together well. We accept we’re all human and do what we need to do to be successful. When we don’t like someone in particular, we just don’t associate with them. We don’t start hate groups nor bully.

Extremism is a major issue not just in the USA, but around the world. And it’s “parent” if you will, is biased media that causes the people to be divided. We are just people of all walks of life. We have hearts, emotions, bones, and brains.

Metal music has helped me as a person. I enjoy the imagery of the stories that are deep within lyrical content that cause you to think. I am proud to be “demonic” if that’s what you will. But, I’ll be the first to help someone hurt in the street or in need of help while you’ll sit there judging from afar.

Extremism needs to stop. Or we’ll just end up causing our own demise.
