Category Archives: Song of the Week
A quick glance at what we are listening to during a given time period. This was formerly Song of the Day, but has changed to Song of the Week.
I came across this song today as my iTunes library was set to random. I realized I hadn’t listened to Type O Negative in quite a while and it was a pleasure reacquainting myself with their dark and sometimes lighthearted music. So why not use it as the song of the week? This song appears on the album Life is Killing Me from 2003. Enjoy!
It seems like a lot of people are talking about the new Behemoth album. No, there ARE a lot of people talking about the new Behemoth album released this week called, The Satanist. I don’t think I need to go much in-depth on what the album has in store for new listeners…it’s probably laced with (insert Church Lady voice) Saaaatan! Personally, I am behind the power curve on this band, but this Song of the Week has me intrigued to say the least. It think this is going to be very high on my list of albums to buy soon. Never mind, it’s downloading right now. What can I say, I’m easy. Enjoy the lyric video for Ora Pro Nobis Lucifer. I threw in Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel as an added bonus if you are not convinced after one song.
For those of you that know me, you know that I work for the military machine known as the U.S. Air Force. A lot of things have been going on in my world that I want to vent about. If you haven’t heard, cuts need to be made. In addition to a selection of aircraft, 25K people need to go. I was informed that my records will be “looked at” and a determination will be made later as to whether or not my services will be needed or not. Yeah, I could get my walking papers with 24,999 other people. Luckily I have 22 years under my belt so, no matter what happens I will be able to get my retirement and move on to (hopefully) greener pastures. Yeah, I am one of the lucky ones all things considered, but I would much rather retire on MY terms.
I went to briefing today and left there feeling a little more confused than before I went in. I felt Hollow inside and for a brief second wanted to Rise up, Walk out, and Live In A Hole. But, I have a family, This Love, to look out for so I won’t be making any decisions in haste…though I’d love to Piss on somebody. I was in a room of Regular People with a Mouth for War and I thought it was about to get downright Fucking Hostile as we were told that many of us may get walking papers later this year…those like me with clean records and a solid career of steadfast duty.
As I sit here I can’t help, but think that the corporate machine I work for is By Demons Be Driven and up to No Good. Cut aircraft, cut programs, but people? We are the most precious resource right? It’s nothing more than a Vulgar Display of Power if you ask me. Well, what is done is done and for now I have to sit on my hands and wait to see if I will be forced to transition to a new life probably in a new place…something I hope works out for the best. Oh, I forgot about the song of the week. I guess I rambled. Thank you for letting me vent. Here is a song I have been listening to a lot lately. Enjoy and have a great one.
This thrash/death outfit from Brazil formed 20 years ago this year. There have been many changes in the band’s line-up, but the music is still as solid and edible as you could want. The song is from their new album, “Esquadrão De Tortura”, released on November 15. Try to keep your head still when the music hits the 2:10 mark.
