Genre: Depressive/Atmospheric Black Metal

this mah shit

My dude Ba Dom is the one rappin on this song and it’s chill as fuck.  A girl told me she actually gave him the chord progressions for the bassline, and then I decided to figure out what it was and play along.

Wound up tuning my guitar to B F A# D# G C (just C standard with the 6th string down another half step) and got a really bassy tone out of my amp.  Playing some goofy shaped power chords, but damn it’s chill. Bring on the drugs and alcohol sonnnnnn

Please, try finding a more dramatic song out there than this one.  It might not be your flavor of music but if you read along with the lyrics you can imagine quite an incredible story…

Listen! Don’t you hear these mad symphonies of grievance and fear? Melancholy and despair can be sensed when we draw near. Some hear a violin sound, others hear a man moaning in tears. These fields are haunted by nature’s most sombre melodies. Suicidal white noise absorbing the essence from light, mirth and vitality. These grounds are haunted by reflections from World War II…

Arise! 1941, ‘42
The identity of warfare on the East Front is lugubrious. There’s one soldier incapable of committing sin. Kept alive by his comrades thanks to his heavenly gift with a violin.

His brilliant music so beautiful and pure… Shining warmth upon every soldier. It helps them to endure. Breath-taking melodies consuming all hate, sorrow and fear. These magnificent tunes are like silk for their ears. And for a moment their pain disappears.

But this moment will not last when they are baffled by another blast. The enemy is near. Rain of bullets killing soldiers there and here. And so the instrument of peace is being silenced by the one of war. It plays the music of the dead; music made of lead. “I’ve had enough of this sickening war and it’s murderous puppets! They don’t understand the language of music cannot be spoken in death. I never took a life! Maybe now is the time to take mine. In the name of music; shall I cut my wrists or hang myself high by a violin string? A symphonic suicide is what I shall bring!”

The enemy lies on the other side of the field. He decides to walk straight into the fire fight, playing this dreamlike masterpiece. Every soldier stops, holds his breath. Not a single shot is being heard during an intro for his own death.

And when the violin bow is being lowered at the end, both sides simultaneously open fire. There’s the corpse of the violinist lying in mud and barbed wire.

These fields are haunted by the funerary dirge of a violinist. Can’t you hear his call of death? Listen! Don’t you hear these mad symphonies of grievance and fear? Melancholy and despair can be sensed when we draw near. Some hear a violin sound… Others hear a man moaning in tears.

The funerary dirge of a violinist…

yeah… those piano and violin parts are beautiful

let the happy flow through you

Hast du etwas Zeit für mich
Dann singe ich ein Lied für dich
Von 99 Luftballons
Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont
Denkst du vielleicht g’rad an mich
Dann singe ich ein Lied für dich
Von 99 Luftballons
Und dass so was von so was kommt

99 Luftballons
Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont
Hielt man für Ufos aus dem All
Darum schickte ein General
‘ne Fliegerstaffel hinterher
Alarm zu geben, wenn es so wär
Dabei war’n da am Horizont
Nur 99 Luftballons

99 Düsenjäger
Jeder war ein großer Krieger
Hielten sich für Captain Kirk
Das gab ein großes Feuerwerk
Die Nachbarn haben nichts gerafft
Und fühlten sich gleich angemacht
Dabei schoss man am Horizont
Auf 99 Luftballons

99 Kriegsminister -
Streichholz und Benzinkanister -
Hielten sich für schlaue Leute
Witterten schon fette Beute
Riefen Krieg und wollten Macht
Mann, wer hätte das gedacht
Dass es einmal soweit kommt
Wegen 99 Luftballons

99 Jahre Krieg
Ließen keinen Platz für Sieger
Kriegsminister gibt’s nicht mehr
Und auch keine Düsenflieger
Heute zieh’ ich meine Runden
Seh’ die Welt in Trümmern liegen
Hab’ ‘nen Luftballon gefunden
Denk’ an dich und lass’ ihn fliegen

Leave it to one of my death metal friends to find the most chill hiphop around

the fuuuuuuuuuuuck?  I’m way too high for these shenanigans wtf.

rofl, how the fuck did 50 Cent release this so many years after making it big?  It’s so unbelievably terrible.

I have loved this song for so many years. I basically instantly loved Moonspell as soon as I heard it because his voice is so… different.

this is great music for what I’m doing

I really need to record myself playing this song because I don’t think people understand just how difficult it is to downpick eighth notes at 210bpm for this long.

whatever, I like the song but I like Peter Tagtgren’s vocals over Mikael Akerfeldt

So I know this guy who happens to be a rapper and I had just found out it was him who made this song. I shit my pants because it’s really incredible. Take a listen and jam! It’s pretty sweet.
