I just have to make a post of this guy. Blaze Bayley’s life have been an inspiration to me because of his determination considering about music and life. He has lost his frontman place in Iron Maiden and he has lost his loved wife on the journey, but still he wrote’s so passionately about life’s struggles that it is just amazing. Here is a small story from wiki:
Blaze Bayley (born Bayley Alexander Cooke,29 May 1963) is an Englishsinger, lyricist, and songwriter. He was the lead singer of Wolfsbane from 1984 to 1994, and again during a more recent reunion. Blaze is best known for being the lead singer of British metal band Iron Maiden from 1994 to 1999. Since 1999, he has embarked on a solo career.
Here is the absolut killer track from Iron Maiden days “Man On The Edge”:
This next one is called “Clansman” also from Iron Maiden days:
What is awesome in Blaze is his ability to write songs about life… the life we all must face everyday and here are couple of examples. First one is about a doctor who says that Blaze, you don’t have brain 😀 and hilarious video too:
And then my absolut favorite song from Blaze’s Silicon Messiah album called “Stare At The Sun”:
And finally to you all Blaze Bayley bashers… FUCK YOU!!! Blaze you are a true Metal God.
Next metal band in the series is Gamma Ray. This band has has dealt with different kind of topics for example New World Order and people’s freedom. Gamma Ray’s frontman Kai Hansen has influenced in Helloween and is very down to Earth guy who deals with real topics in his lyrics:
Second band in the series is rightly Megadeth. This band and especially Dave Mustaine is heavily interested about NWO, history and World politics. And hey if you didn’t know Dave was Metallica’s guitar player in the 1980’s, but they kicked him out. And if you watch these bands today it’s not hard to see how much better Megadeth is nowadays. Firstly I post one of my all time favorite songs on their best album Rust In Peace… this one is called Holy Wars…The Punishment Due:
And because this site deals with odd topics and mainly UFO stuff the second song is on the same album called Hangar 18:
Next one continues the story above so this one is called Return To Hangar, actually this is Hangar 18 & Return To Hangar live:
This next one is never stuff and is called Endgame from the album called Endgame. It’s about NWO agenda and dystopia stuff:
And finally here is Dave Mustaine in Infowars talking about patriotism and NWO:
I appreciate Dave’s bravery to talk about true things in the World.
This series is about metal band’s that have somekind of Truth in their lyrics or investigation about Truth. And because sometimes investigations get too heavy and you just have to cool down and relax music is a good tool for that. Music is also a powerful tool to manipulate people in good or in bad. I’m not saying that heavy metal music is good or bad, but I can say that in metal music there are good lyrics, which consider the situation on this planet or history.
This series is about metal bands, because I have listened mostly metal all my life and I think I know something about it. World is full of metal bands, but just few of them write about history or world events seriously. First band, that I want to introduce is Iron Maiden, because I have listen it since 1989. Their music is full of philosophy, historical events, religion (investigation sense) and current World status. In this series I’m not going to tell you which are the best mainstreme songs of these bands, what I’m going to do, is that I choose a song which have some philosophical, historical or that kind of significance.
First I post my favorite songs just because this is my blog 😉 and the first one is Hallowed Be Thy Name. Why I choose this version is because it just kind of wraps up the vibe that Maiden have today after 30 years:
Second favorite song is Phantom Of The Opera and this is from their early days. No particular history value, but tells you about everything Maiden was and is today:
Then I post couple of songs that have some truth value. First one is a song called Brave New World. It’s based on a book of same name:
And here is the live version from year 2000 in Rock In Rio, which is just awesome:
Second son which have some significant philosophical value is Childhood’s End and here is the book behind this song:
Childhood’s End is a 1953 science fiction novel by the British author Arthur C. Clarke. The story follows the peaceful alien invasionof Earth by the mysterious Overlords, whose arrival ends all war, helps form a world government, and turns the planet into a near-utopia. Many questions are asked about the origins and mission of the aliens, but they avoid answering, preferring to remain in their spacecraft, governing through indirect rule. Decades later, the Overlords show themselves, and their impact on human culture leads to a Golden Age.
