Ok, breakdown time. I've been considering making a journal, but, I hadn't found what it would be about. So, after some soul searching, I came up with nothing, then I came upon an idea. My journal will be reviewing songs, no matter what genre (though mostly it will be rock and it's subgenres). Bare in mind, I'm just another regular Joe, so the things stated here are my humble opinions.
Enough blabber, back to the journal. Here's how it'll work: I will listen and discuss my thoughts on a song I select or is suggested by the readers.
So, let's get right into it.
Pick no. 1 This War is Ours ( The Guillotine pt. 2)
This is a great song preformed by Escape the Fate off of their latest full length album This War is Ours. First off, let me say I am the last person to say he's a fan of post-hardcore music. I've always seen this genre in a negative light due to the music scene where I live, but, that's a topic for another day.
This song has the greatest opening riff I've heard in a long time. It starts out with awsome sweeping from Brayn "Monte" Money on lead guitar. This was one of the factors that got me hooked on this song. Now, apart from the opening riff this song has great guitar lines wich I enjoy alot.
In the vocal area, it's not that far from what I've come to expect from this genre, all the high pitched screeching and low 'growling' are of no surprise. But I have to comend vocalist Craig Mabbitt on the lyrics of this song, I enjoy them very much, especially the corous (I'm not sure how to write that word...). 'And I will see you through the smoke and flames, on the frontline of war.' this line inspires my mind to wander to the side of those brave men and women who are out there on the frontlines fighting for our country.
Well, that's my first review, I hope you all enjoy it. Please send feedback, I'll be greatful.
P.S. I forgot to say that you can all send me songs you want me to review, I'll be happy to give my opinions on as many as possible.
