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 weekend with Parsifal and Die Walküre.
About Luis Buñuel, Donald Trump's subliminal messages and the Ring from Herbert von Karajan, the perfect summer drug.
Their debut album is a fresh heap of metal in a punk coat and I prefer it over a lot of their later output.
Lou Reed rhymes and Metallica plays. The result is a poetry-slam over a metal jam.
