Wildhoney

I've heard about Tiamat decades ago, so how come that I did not listen to their albums until now? I bet I was not aware about their profound sounds and feelings behind those sounds!

A Pocket Size Sun, from the album Wildhoney, made me think about a little bag with something white within it, so I checked out for its meaning. I was right. Actually the entire album seems to send the listener towards a psychedelic state. The opening track, that also gives the name to the album, sent me to Pink Floyd's Cirrus Minor.


I would like to dare you to listen to this album, Wildhoney, and share your thought! Well, you might take a flight in the clouds, so I'll have to wait for your to land prior to tell me your experience! Personally it took me a while (a couple of weeks to be more precise) to write these lines...

She started to sing a lullaby
Originated from ancient Senoi
In dreams realm can no one die
Sleep safe my little boy
Senoi Dream Theory is a set of claims about how people can learn to control their dreams to reduce fear and increase pleasure -- especially sexual pleasure.

Bad Company

Hearing about the Wrong Side of Heaven, a touching song of the ones from Five Finger Death Punch, I was curious about some other of their songs. So I came across Bad Company. Being a classic rock based listener, I knew about Bad Company's original. The 5FDP version is a very good one, so here I am posting it side by side with the original (actually one on top of the other).

Keep on rocking!

The Gloaming

I've notice the very same animation used in the videoclips of two great rock bands: Pink Floyd and Tool. The animation is called The Gloaming, made by Niko Nobrain, and the clips are Welcome to the Machine, and Right in Two, respectively.

Keep on rocking!

Opeth, King Crimson, and Anathema

Listening to the sounds of Damnation, Opeth's album released back in 2003, my mind was set on a certain kind of move, a move like gently sailing a boat on big, yet calm, ocean waves, a sonic move between two albums: King Crimson's In The Court of The Crimson King and Anathema's Alternative 4. And, of course, a pinch of Pink Floyd!

Of Breath And Bone

I was about to name this post or at least a part of it as "for tonight". After a second thought I said to myself, "Oh, no, not just for tonight, yet for any powerful night!" Since I've heard the first sounds of Be'lakor's songs, I simply can not skip it when I see its name on YouTube's Recommended list...

Now it is up to you to listen to their songs and albums, and to listen to them again; again and again...

Here are some of the lyrics picked up from the album Of Breath And Bone (2012).


Her finger to my lips,
I am stilled in an instant —
I sip, and am numbed
From here the path winds backwards
I swallow forgotten words
To gain what was lost
And lost what was gained
Until neither is real
Behind my head, her hands hold no weight
Ills that never truly mend
Breath which seldom draws in ease
Pulses often miss their step
Somatic ever in disease
Of sprawl and flame
From nothing it came
Seemingly
The gap between us tears apart
Impel our end
Layers surge and strip away
Cast into nought
Distance loses meaning
As the breath becomes the fire
Gone are fibres; gone are thoughts
...But vapours in the pyre
Yet as the sun began to sink
He seemed to sense, he seemed to think
That soon his brother might appear
From somewhere close, from somewhere near
Convinced this was his brother's fate,
Above his corpse, he sat... to wait

The dream and the waking
Ending together
Understanding then
It had not mattered, ever


Fifteen times the leaves had shorn,
Trod by boy and beast
Kith and kin to fare him well
The youngling parted east
The sixteenth leaves began to fall
Indifferent, they withstood
Now, a man with nothing left
He turned back for the woods
By Moon And Star
