15 BEST HEAVY METAL GROUPS OF ALL TIMES AND PEOPLES (part 2)

Goblin

Goblin is difficult to classify as a pure metalist, but their active involvement in the composition of soundtracks for horror films makes them similar to the iron guys. This Italian group originally had a much more harmless name – Cherry Five. Their music debuted in Dario Argento’s film Blood Red. Since then, they often collaborated with the director, and they also gained worldwide fame thanks to him by writing the soundtrack for the film “Suspiria”, which many critics consider the peak of Argento’s work. Since then, Goblin sounds have been recognized worldwide thanks to ominous whispers in the background. The soloist of the group, Massimo Morante, personally whispered and mumbled into the microphone for each recording – and it turned out very convincingly. The soundtrack to the movie “Suspiria” is considered one of the best musical horror albums of all time. Continue reading

15 BEST HEAVY METAL GROUPS OF ALL TIMES AND PEOPLES (part 1)

Metal rockers are great guys! They give fans of heavy music the opportunity to shout and shake their heads – in short, to feel like teenagers at any age. And they invariably delight everyone else with a colorful show, appearing on stage with either dog’s heads or now in extraterrestrial spacesuits. In a word, even if you are not happy with their music, you can enjoy watching them by turning off the sound. Let’s see who should be admired in the first place.

Gwar

Even if you are not a fan of metal, you may have heard of the band ‘Gwar’. Well, something, and these guys know how to give shows, as well as arrange scandals worthy of getting on the front pages of the largest world newspapers. The guys from Richmond, Virginia, have been on the scene since 1984 – and that’s something, it means. Continue reading

How, why did a new style of music come about, how did it all begin? (part 3)

“What are Western rock bands singing about?” Not a lot has already been written about the texts of songs of the “hard rock” style in my work, and we could no longer touch on this topic. But the fact is, while sorting out my “archive” of articles about rock music, I came across an article with the title written above, published in the newspaper Argumenty i Fakty in 1988. How uneducated, in the field of rock, the author of the article becomes clear from the very first lines, but by the middle of the article, a rock-savvy person realizes that he is deliberately misled. So, the author divides the texts of various groups into 3 categories:

a) Variations on the theme of love. Unfortunately, N. Arefiev ranks exclusively pop groups in this category, obviously forgetting to listen to Scorpions, Europe, Gorky Park and many other hard rock groups. Continue reading
