Are you a Monster or a Hero ?


My life is a constant struggle between the demons that haunt me  (trust me, they are more than a handful) and the alter ego that torments me. I guess all of us go through that, but we plaster our faces with the proverbial “I am great, how are you doing?” laconic gesture.

When I used to work in some quarters, I hated the dreaded “How are you doing?” inquiry. For one, my immediate response to that would be “what do you care?” but being part of the so called civilized society, I would give the usual humdrum reply. The reply has to be    ” I am doing great!!!”, not “OK” or “Fine” or “getting by”…. because that would be met by an equally rapid fire question to the tune of “what happened?”

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

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
