As is turning into my Friday evening habit, I found myself chatting with folks at the Doctrine hosted Friday Night, It’s Alright, Video Chat-a-thon. When I walked through the virtual door, oh, around 8:15 pm, there was already a crowd gathering. In attendance were Clark and Lizzi, Zoe, Linda and Laura. Someone named Leigh hung around for a while. Michelle came but left too quickly! Lesssee….Kristi popped in for a bit while Joy arrived a short time after her, ready rumble! (no, not really. that just came out. lol) I don’t really know Joy. But I like her.
Let’s get back to…music! Any music that makes me smile is good music. 5 fingers + Rob = smiles. Throw in a fun guitar lick and what’s not to like? Friday night on the Chat Laura, after discovering I also liked 5tdp (5 finger death punch), turned me on to a couple of bands I had never heard of. One of those bands are these guys. Thank you Laura!
Confession time. Laura is the first female I have ever met who loves the same “hard” type of music that so often sets my soul to soaring and my heart a melting. Metal for the mind. Metal for the soul. *blissful sigh* To top it off, she is the first person to voice what I’ve never been able to explain to anyone – heavy, so called “metal” music can be happy music. It’s true! It can make me smile, give me energy, move me to tears, bring me joy. It does everything music is supposed to do.
