How did I became a Metalhead?!

  • Mood: Pride
  • Listening to: Amaranthe


Hey guys,

     Ever since middle school and high school, I have heard some kids listening to heavy metal. When I first heard that music, all I heard was screaming, roaring, and loud music. The music sounded scary and evil and I hated it. I tried to stay away from the genre as much as possible for nine years. I have not listened to it through Middle School, High School, and College.
 
     The music I had been listening to for many years was rock and pop. I had been listening to music that was playing on the radio all the time. I listened to singers like Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana, Drake, Lil Wayne, Rhianna, Pink, Daughtry, Nickelback, Greenday, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Selena Gomez, Pitbull, and others club singers. A lot of people listened to it throughout school. They played this music in school, parties, in the car, and at home.

     But since I saw Miley Cyrus changed from Hannah Montana to a crackhead. She had fun on the VMA with Robin Thicke(Dick). Then she made a lot of fetish performances in her concerts and music videos. Nicki Minaj acted like a stripper and a prostitute and call herself a singer. Bullshit! Justin Bieber, I want someone to murder him right now. I can write a book about why I hate Justin Bieber. Pitbull sings about getting laid, being rich, being Latino, going to clubs, partying, and being Mr. Worldwide. SHUT UP PITBULL! Lil Wayne also sings the same shit. Robin Thicke, blurred lines anyone?!

     The more I had listened to the songs from all those singers on the radio, the more I realized I am not listening to music. I was listening to just crap that sends bad messages to our generation and the next generation. No one knows how bad mainstream music is! All mainstream music is about money, sex, drugs, and partying. That is not good! Those things I listened should never be part of music.

     When I realized how horrible the music on the radio was bad, I turned off the radio and never listened to that music for a year and I feel happy about it. So I was looking for music that is not mainstream music. My friend Danny introduced me to a rock band called Skillet and I got into it. It is not mainstream and I like how it is real music and the band are performing with passion. I listened to them all summer.

     As I continued to listen to Skillet on last December, I found a song on Youtube called The Nexus by a band called Amaranthe. I saw the picture of the hot woman on the thumbnail. I clicked on it and it turned out to be a heavy metal song. I thought about turning it off and I thought it is a metal song, but I decided to listen to the whole song. When the song was over, I smiled because that heavy metal song sounded awesome. I listened to it over and over as I loved that song.

 

     As I listened to that song, I started listening to other songs from Amaranthe and I got hooked by them. I listened to them while writing Hybrid and that helped me write better and faster. I really love Elize Ryd, one of the singers of Amaranthe. She is a very good dancer, her singing is beautiful, she is very nice and sweet, and never played mainstream music. I really love the screamer of that band as well. Everyone in Amaranthe is very talented. I have a good list of songs from Amaranthe I really enjoyed like Amaranthine, Drop Dead Cynical, Digital World, Invincible, and Electroheart. I got all their albums and have been listening to them everyday and really obsess with them.

     They inspired me to listen to other metal bands. When Nathan found out I am obsess with Amaranthe, he started listening to it and likes them. He also introduced me to a band he loves listening to and that was Nightwish. Night wish is a heavy metal band that combines European folk music with metal and it sounds beautiful. We listened to the whole album and I sync it into my mp3 player along with Amaranthe.

     Listening to Amaranthe helped me ski better. I have not skiied for 10 years. I kept falling and it was hard for me. Then I started listening to Amaranthe and Nightwish, I became a better skier and was able to ski at the steepest and most challenging ski trail on the mountain. I kept skiing everyday all winter as I love to listen to them. They gave me confidence and focused more on my skiing. I have become a better skiier because of Amaranthe.

     As I continued to listen to both Amaranthe and Nightwish, I then started listening to Kamelot, which Elize Ryd was one of the singers of that band and ended up listening more Kamelot. Then I have been watching many Youtube videos of Elize Ryd and see how talented she is. She has so much passion for music and she is never acted like Miley Cyrus or Katy Perry or Nicki Minaj. I then listened to bands that Elize performed with them as their guest like this song.



I then listened to Dragonforce and they are so good! Their music is like fast guitar playing with 80's style and that is cool. Then I listened to Delain along with Kamelot, Sabaton, and Arch Enemy and I love them. I am still looking for metal bands to listen to and I really happy about it.

For so many years, I have been hating heavy metal. But I was hating it because I didn't understand it. It is just music and there are so many subgenres that I want to explore in metal. After discovering Amaranthe, that made me listen to more metal bands. Nathan and I bought tickets to go see Nightwish and saw them live in Worcester, MA. That was my first heavy metal concert and I had a huge blast there! As I was in the concert, I was not only watching them live, I was living with them. There is a big difference!

After seeing Nightwish, I then went to another concert and saw Dragonforce and Kamelot. That was cool to see the bands I have been watching on Youtube and seeing them live. It is such a great thing to see them live and make me want to listen to more metal.

Then last May, I finally got to see the band that inspired me to enjoy heavy metal, Amaranthe. I have been going crazy throughout the show as I finally got to see them along with my favorite singer, Elize. I wrote a huge journal about my experience in the concert and finally got to meet them in person. I got my pictures taken with them and even got to meet her! She was excited to see me!

If you want to read that journal about me seeing Amaranthe, the journal is right here:
The Best Night Of My Life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Headbang! Headbang! Headbang! Headbang! Headbang! Headbang! Headbang! Headbang! Headbang! Headbang!        
Guys, last night was the best night of my life. I drove three hours from my house to Worcester, Ma all by myself. I waited in line for two hours outside the Palladium theater. Waited five hours while

Me meeting Elize Ryd by CommnderShepard117
After I got home, I wrote a letter to Amaranthe thanking them for performing at Worcester and letting me get to meet them in person. Elize Ryd read my letter on facebook and she wrote, "thank you so much Crazy Iron Man Brendan! Hope to see you soon again! Kisses/Elize" Oh my god, it is awesome to be one of her top fans. God, I love her!

I love listening to heavy metal and I would choose that over mainstream music. I am still going to heavy metal concerts. The next one I am going to go see is Arch Enemy and then go see Epica! How cool is that?!

From last December to now, Amaranthe had inspired me to become a metalhead and I thank them for that. I am still looking for other bands to listen to and show how much I love it. I went from a metal hater to metal lover.

My name is Brendan. And I am proud to be a metalhead!


Hey guys, I am looking for anyone that is willing to make a commission project with two characters embracing and kissing with great passion. Those characters are ones that are in my sci fi novel series, Hybrid. If you are very good with digital art and digital painting and/or painting in general, would you be interested in doing a passionate kiss project for me? Please let me know if you are interested and I will expand the details. Thanks!

We have to Cancel The Ridiculous Six!!!!!!

I hate Adam Sandler! He acts like a child in movies. He also plays a bad rich guy who is very irresponsible father. He can't act and he is not funny. All he relies on his gross out humor which is gross and not funny. What makes it worse, he made his own movie production called Happy Madison. Happy Madison is nothing but gross out humor and horrible acting.  He keeps making those movies and getting a lot of money. He is childish, greedy, lazy, and unfunny.

He is creating another movie called The Ridiculous Six, which is a western comedy film coming soon. I found the leaked scripted online and it was disgusting and racist! Here is what I got from Change.org and I quote, "Adam Sandler and Netflix are in the middle of producing a movie called The Ridiculous Six that contains offensive material with regard to Indigenous people. Native American characters speak throughout the script in broken English, and women are given demeaning, stereotypical names like "Beaver’s Breath" and "No Bra."In one scene in particular, Sandler has an actress portraying an Apache woman squatting and peeing while smoking a peace pipe. In another, Sandler has a group of white men pour liquor on an unconscious Native woman who wakes up and starts dancing."

What the hell is that?

Many people left the production because they find this movie racist!

I don't want to watch a movie that is not funny and extremely racist!

I have signed a petition to cancel this movie. I need your help to get that movie cancelled! www.change.org/p/netflix-cance… Go to this site and sign up!!!

Thank you!

Hey guys,

     For those that have read Hybrid, I have been listening to one of the songs from my favorite band Amaranthe called Amaranthine. This song is such a wonderful love song that I listened to it over and over as I wrote scenes between Alexander and Vyla. Alexander really cared for her ever since they met as children and they grew up together. Their chemistry grew throughout the first book. If you are a Hybrid fan or like reading cute scenes, check out this music video and let me know if this song fits well for Alexander and Vyla.



What do you think?
