Haus Aus Spiegel – Der W

And there it is, the next masterpiece straight from the mind or heart of Mister Weidner, my personal prophet. I do wonder where these kind of songs are coming from, is it more a heart or head thing? I fell in love immediately when I heard the first notes. The opening somehow reminds me of the incredible bass solo by Jason Newsted. I was complete in awe when I first time heard it. Another song...

Der Berg Bewegt Sich Nicht – Der W

Der W released the first two songs from his upcoming fifth long-player “V”. To be honest, not impressed so far. Solid songs, but nothing special. I’m a bit bored, that after the first two records got dedicated names, since the third one it’s just the number. Either you do that from the start or you don’t. It’s inconsistent, my inner Monk can’t process...

L√ľgen – Rammstein

Definitely my favorite song besides the title giving Zeit on the latest Rammstein long player. I believe, one of Til’s honest songs ever ūüôā So, how is Zeit? Well, it seems the critics find it pretty lame, while most fans like it a lot. Myself? I have to agree that it partly appears a bit bloodless with too much room for the juvenile stuff, but then again, Zeit, Meine Tr√§nen and L√ľgen will be...

Fatal – RZA

Just popped in my head. Granted, from todays standard, especially the third Blade is a bit cheesy, but in general not a bad trilogy. And this song stuck with me right away. Still good tunes. Blade, ready to dieI was born ready, motherfucker Daywalker, daywalkerDaywalker, daywalker Yo, yo, yoIt’s the feast of the blood with sin, unleash the beast withinI walk around, with the strength of a...

Gangsta’s Paradise – Coolio

Popped into my head some days ago and remains a great song. You can literally smell the ghost of the 90’s in these tunes, while the lyrics couldn’t be more current I believe. Somehow the line I’m a educated fool with money on my mind always gets me … As I walk through the valley of the shadow of deathI take a look at my life, and realize there’s nothin’...

I Should Have Known – Foo Fighters

I’m not a massive Foo Fighters fan. I like quite some songs, but many are also not really my thing. But the band is just brilliant. Such lovely people. I can’t imagine how they must feel right now, losing their drummer all of a sudden, in the best age. How Dave Grohl must feel right now. It seems to unfair and unbelievable. I should’ve known that it would end this wayI...

Something In The Way – Nirvana

I was happy when the first trailer for The Batman featured this classic Nirvana song, but I did not expected to hear the tunes in the actual movie. Pretty unusual and cool, but also not the first discovering Nirvana for a movie or TV context – first was Ramin Djawadi using reimagining Heart Shaped Box for the second season of Westworld, I believe. Also pretty amazing. More please...

Zeit – Rammstein

More or less out of the blue, Rammstein released the first title-giving song from their upcoming long-player Zeit. And I have to say, I’m impressed. A masterpiece, in every aspect. The lyrics, the vocals, the composition and once more, an astonishing video. Zeit could be understood as a hint that the seventh record might be the last. But then again, Rammstein never pretended to be as...

Bad Wolves – Zombie

A great cover that wasn’t supposed to be just a a cover. Great interpretation, great video. Another head hangs lowlyChild is slowly takenAnd the violence causes silenceWho are we mistaken? But you see, it’s not meIt’s not my familyIn your head, in your head, they are fightingWith their tanks, and their bombsAnd their bombs, and their dronesIn your head, in your head, they are...
