I’m a complete sucker for the simplest of lyrical tricks. The repeat of the same lyric over and over as band slowly builds into a cacophany. I fall for it every time. And this band might have the single greatest example of that trick….

I thought I would be more than this
I thought I would be more than this
I thought I would be more than this
I thought I would be more than this

I thought I would be more than this
I thought I would be more than this
I thought I would be more than this
I thought I would be more than this

I thought I would be more than this
I thought I would be more than this
I thought I would be more than this
I thought I would be more than this

I absolutely lose my shit by the last one. Being middle aged and listening to him pound that thought into my head over and over drives me insane.

In a good way.

As my mother used to say to me when I would act a fool as a youngster…

“Stop it. You’re embarrassing yourself”

a great song is a great song. And Maiden has an ASSLOAD of ‘em.

Have long since stopped listening to metal and am a complete pretentious fuck face and only listen to the newest and hippest music out. That being said went and saw Maiden live last year on a whim. Simply coldn’t believe how much they still kick ass.

If there’s an equivalent to “hipster” in the world of Metal it’s gotta be fucking Maiden. Another cool thing…..when I go to indie shows everybody is trying to wear the gear of a band slightly more obscure than the one you are about to watch. When I was a kid and went to metal shows everybody wore a shirt of a band that was a little heavier than the one you were about to see. When I went to see Maiden last year EVERYBODY wears Maiden gear. And it’s entire family units. Just plain crazy how much love Maiden still has out there.

I bought 2 pounds of this product. I can no longer afford to have Daft Punk play at my house.

Come see my new band “Contemplating Pegasus”. We’re WAY better than either of the aforementioned bands.

I have two comments….

#1 – Papercuts are f’ing amazing. Everything is so gauzy, ornate, and simple…all at once. I simply love this band.

#2 – And I know I’m going to catch holy hell for this as it has nothing to do with the topic at hand….
Am I the only one that thinks “Montana” by Youth Lagoon is the one of the most emotionally moving songs they’ve ever heard? It stuns me every single time I listen to it.

Bash away gang…….

Everything this cat has ever done feels important. I doubt the word “trite” has ever been applied to his work in any way.
