This website wants to be a musical journey from the blues-based hardrock I grew up with to the 19th century music dramas of Richard Wagner I became so enarmored with later in my life.
The music of Wagner feels, more than the music of any other (classical) composer I know, like a natural extension for someone who loves hardrock and heavy metal. A place for the metal aficionado who might have reached a point of arrival in his taste and is receptive for something that goes beyond the sound of double bass drums and howling guitarsolos. Something else, but something that is equally, if not more, satisfying to ears and soul.
Dark clouds of sound with real redeeming qualities for mind and soul
A new release of Lohengrin on CD. A review that covers the performances from December 2015.
A weekend with Parsifal and Die Walküre.
Progressive song structures in music that crosses borders, burns like h*ll, never cease to fascinate and has a taste for the theatrical as well.
Lou Reed rhymes and Metallica plays. The result is a poetry-slam over a metal jam.
