I’m Moving to Finland
Current mood: rockin
lost touch with just how dire American music has become. I was
starting to open up and listen happily to stuff like the current wave
of semi-grown-up pop and the current flavors of growly-screamy
metal. Well, FUCK THAT SHIT.
Many thanks to Sonata Arctica
for playing a FREE SHOW last night, at the Tremont Music Hall, after
the headline act Nightwish lost the services of their frontman
(best wishes to Annette for a speedy recovery). Let me remind the
audience that these guys had a no. 1 album in Finland last year - they
don't even need to be touring here, playing 300 person clubs, let alone
going on for free.
The band was tight, the vocals were fantastic
(thems is four voice harmonies, folks), the solos were shredding, and
they had - A KEYTAR!
And the songs just rock.
[ SPOKEN: ]
Oh why are we so sad?
Are we feeling hurt by their evil eyes
and all those empty words?
We are thirsty for payback?
What would we like to do with the town?
Would we like to make it dance, (Ha
ha ha ha) with the animal?
Would we? Would we?
Tell us, what we would like to do.
Burn it. Burn it all...
Burn honey, burn, let the fire eat away
I never liked the look of this town
Burn it down now
I'll run, they all know what I've done
I fetch my gear and take my leave from this mountain
I never had a chance to prove I wasn't guilty,
I always seemed to get blamed for
Every little crime, I didn't even have a name for...
Still running, still defeated in my mind
I never even tried to defend my own pride
The father ain't always like the son
They claim we've purloined, I'm not the one...
The story always goes, when the anger within
Builds up for too long...
Takes us over...
And we all are forced to obey, hey...
It was a match made in Hell,
Now the whole mountain burns
And every man gets what no man deserves
Our beloved kin never learned to fit in
Now I pay for my name, live my life in sin
How much less can I ask from you people?
This town stays in disarray
'Til the rules are the same for us all, hey...
