Now, continuing with the Slow Epicness Week, I will put the next three songs. Again, to remind you the kind of songs I am posting this week, I will post three of them, one for each day. Each one is a slow tune that grows into epicness, usually a ballad that inspires you, no matter how sad the topic. Enjoy!
80 Days – Marillion (Friday)
Take it easy, breathe, rethink yourself. A simple message. Maybe one of the most interesting bands in existence,almost none of my friends know them. The beautiful thing about the song is that it never reaches the heavy crescendo like in rock or even in metal; instead the tonade (here played by a xylophone, I think) makes you really try to shake off your weariness, making it a perfect song for people who just want to feel inspired by just listening to a relatively tranquil song.
Eukalyptustreet – Solefald (Saturday)
Solefald is a weird band. Hailing to the Folk Metal genre, they usually experiment a lot with different kinds of styles. This one in particular has a jazzy tone that very slowly grows into a crescendo. I will be honest here, though, I do not understand a word of what the musicians say. But that is the beauty of music: you can enjoy it even though you don’t know the text!
Romance de la luna, luna – Saurom (Sunday)
Continuing with the language barrier, this time I turn towards Spain, where a very unknown band takes, what I think is, a folk song dedicated to the moon. This one is really very interesting and it really plays with your mood. A nice lovesong to enjoy, ironically, you Sun-day!
Well, next week I’ll return to the usual games rant I do, I still have a Greatest Fantasy Story Ever segment in preparation and the new series, which, because of unforseen events in my life, had to be re-scheduled for another day. Until then…
May they smile upon your way!
