SotD: Ayreon - Valley Of The Queens

Submitted by Druss on Mon, 2007-06-18 19:26

Today's Song Of The Day is Ayreon's Valley of the Queens, a breathtakingly beautiful vocal-centric piece. A quiet song, its beauty lies in the harmonies provided by the wonderful Anneke van Giersbergen coupled with the poignant lyrics which paint a moving picture (I'm a sucker for all things fantasy after all). I'm seriously hooked onto Ayreon at the moment.

The lyrics follow:

My journey's over,
I'm standing on the edge,
And close my eyes
To this world of lies.

SotD - Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds with Kylie Minogue

Considering my general taste in music, people find it surprising when they find me talking about Kylie Minogue et al. All I can say is that music is music. I don't particularly give a fuck about which genre an artist is in or if it is socially acceptable for a metal/whatever fan to listen to pop, dance etc.

Megadeth - Out on the tiles

The unfortunate few of you out there who have nothing better to do than to read this blog are well aware of my disappointment with Megadeth's latest album United Abominations. You might also remember me mentioning and looking forward to the Japan Disc which was to contain a bonus track - a cover of Led Zeppelin's Out on the tiles. Well, as far as I can tell, it hasn't been leaked anywhere just yet.
