More than a song, it is actually the melody of the day: Harmageddon from Apocalyptica is one of the first singles of the band and it is simply good when it comes to put your mind in a state of trance. I use it to study and it works for me. The rythm and pace of it awake my brain and fill it up with strong bass notes created by the cellos of these metal-lovers. Hmmm… Check it and convince yourself.
I don’t know if I wrote before about this madafaka, but I saw the video time ago and I think it deserves to be remembered. Remember that Rock never dies. Although not so popular as the shit we are used to hear in the radio, the many variations of Rock are always present to satisfy the animal instinct of release tensions and pressures through a powerful shot of Energy directly to the brain.

Female metal singers have been showing up lately and are now an important part of gigantic bands like Arch Enemy, Therion, Detente. In the same line we can find even bands formed by girls only, like the Iron Maidens, Kittie, Tijuana Sweetheart, and many others.
But this post is not for the girls with albums and defined musical careers, this post is for the girls that play what they want and become the heart breakers of thousands in the net.

Cierta tarde acompañé a mi hermano a casa de uno de sus amigos, según le prestaría unos discos de música. Nada me daba más hueva que andar atrás de mi hermano siempre, pero ni modo, reglas de la casa. Al entrar a la habitación de aquel cabrón quedé deslumbrado.

Gene Simmons sobresalía con ese famoso maquillaje y la lengua de fuera, a la par que el riff de Deuce se empezaba a oír de fondo. ¡Utaaaaa!… ambiente de ensueño. Ahí me enamoré de esa bandota llamada mágicamente KISS.
Pero ¿quiénes o qué es KISS? Continue reading
