Megadeath Vs Arch enemy (Symphony of Destruction)


I accidentally came across the classic song “Symphony of Destruction” on YouTube ( happens to be an all time favorite song for me). Arch enemy has rendition-ed the song in their own guttural growls.

Which do you think sounds better? I liked the original, but after hearing Arch enemy a couple of times, I am confused.

Hear it for yourself

Megadeath

 

Arch Enemy

 

Weight it out… Will Ya….

oh…. Gotta have the lyrics

You take a mortal man
And put him in control
Watch him become a god
Watch people’s heads a’roll
A’roll, a’ roll

Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes
Swaying to the symphony
Of destruction

Acting like a robot
Its metal brain corrodes
You try to take its pulse
Before the head explodes
Explodes, explodes

Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes
Swaying to the symphony

Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes
Swaying to the symphony
Swaying to the symphony
Of destruction

The earth starts to rumble
World powers fall
A’warring for the heavens
A peaceful man stands tall
Tall, tall

Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes
Swaying to the symphony

Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes
Swaying to the symphony
Swaying to the symphony
Of destruction

Music in Mixcraft


I made this track using Mixcraft. Just threw a couple of loops together…. Thought to keep it for posterity… to remember what I’ve been doing on such and such day.

Insomnium – While We Sleep


When your heart gives out and your love collapses
When the hand that never lets go is there no more
When you reap and sow only throe and resentment
When there’s no one else but you to blame it for
When all you ever wish for is to go back once more
When all you ever wish for is to change it all
When all you feel is remorse, pain and regret
When you dwell in the past unable to move on

And we drift far away in our dreams
Gather further distance while we sleep
Build a wall of glass thick and deep
We hear but choose not to listen

And we drift far away in our dreams
Gather further distance while we sleep
Still the bridge is enflamed with fire
Leave all the love we had behind

When you realize that your life is a one-way road
When you realize that there’s no point of return
When you understand that you can’t go back anymore

When you understand you can only move onwards

And we drift far away in our dreams
Gather further distance while we sleep
Build a wall of glass thick and deep
We hear but choose not to listen

And we drift far away in our dreams
Gather further distance while we sleep
Still the bridge is enflamed with fire
Leave all the love we had behind

Slow down
We need to slow down
We need to slow down so I can catch you

We need to slow down so I can catch you
We need to slow down so you can catch me
We need to slow down so I can catch you
We need to slow down so you can catch me
Slow down

Nihilist… Me… Maybe…and then some


I have to remember this

Deep down, I love movies about science fiction, super heroes and down right super villains. Because deep down they are all flawed and I can relate to that. yet we try and portray a facade of perfection. We like to have trophy wives, children than we can be proud off and parade around as little drops of perfection, big cars and houses to boot, oh and lets not forget about the people we know….. no not those friends from childhood….Its the ones that matter, the ones that add splendor to our resplendent life.

I see super heroes and super villains in all walks of life, sometimes to their credit but mostly  its not of their own making, but circumstances that dictate beyond their realm of control. In the end we all have/make choices. How we use them to our better judgement and the decisions we make is what defines us…

Nihilism : Total and absolute destructiveness, especially toward the world at large and including oneself…..Isn’t that  what super heroes fight for… Sometimes I wish the world would collapse around me…. Sorry, I don’t mean that for others, but nonetheless it is inevitable. But there is hope… The Phoenix rises out of the ashes.
