Original Music

Some more of my music.

I really like a lot of techno and house type music. Particularly the stuff out of Europe. Dubstep is okay in small doses but if it’s just a bunch of noise with no beat then I don’t really care for it. I also like some of more notable female singers like Sarah McLachlan and Loreena McKennitt. Really there are many artists and singers that I really like. But some of them have a bit more a impact than others. I grew up to Enya’s music so I of course love her and similar artists. Enya’s ‘Sail Away’ link http://youtu.be/LTrk4X9ACtw is kinda like my childhood lullaby.  I also really enjoy some of the movie soundtracks that Hans Zimmer does- Lisa Gerrard  from Gladiator (link to it) Now We Are Free -Lisa Gerrard 

One of the bands that I really love that I stumbled upon is Within Temptation. Their music is so mixed and the lead singer AMAZING. From the Netherlands, they aren’t very well known in USA yet, but they are getting super popular in Europe and hopefully will tour the states at some point. I found WT (Within Temptation) before my life really took a turn for the worse.

This is one of their older songs ‘Ice Queen’ Lyrics below. The song gives you a good idea of how the lead singer sounds. The link to the youtube video is: http://youtu.be/huQr3OWWzTA

When leaves have fallen and skies turned to gray
The night keeps on closing in on the day
A nightingale sings his song of farewell
You better hide for her freezing hell

On cold wings she’s coming you better keep moving
For warmth you’ll be longing, nightingale
Come on just feel it don’t you see it?
You better believe it

When she embraces your heart turns to stone
She comes at night when you’re all alone
And when she whispers your blood shall run cold
You better hide before she finds you

Whenever she is raging she takes all life away
Haven’t you seen? Haven’t you seen?
The ruins of our world

Whenever she is raging she takes all life away
Haven’t you seen? Haven’t you seen?
The ruins of our world

She covers the earth with a breath taking cloak
The sun awakes and melts it away
The world now opens it’s eyes and sees
The dawning of a new day

On cold wings she’s coming you better keep moving
For warmth you’ll be longing, nightingale
Come on just feel it don’t you see it?
You better believe it

Whenever she is raging she takes life away
Haven’t you seen? Haven’t you seen?
The ruins of our world

  1. I LOVE Within Temptation. I discovered them about 5 years ago watching Harry Potter videos on YouTube. If you like them, check out Epica and Delain, too. Great bands also from the Netherlands. WT, Delain, and Epica really got me through some rough patches.

    Delain – check out “Sleepwalker’s Dream”, “No Compliance”, “April Rain”, “Come Closer”, and “Daylight Lucidity”.

    Epica – check out their new single “Storm the Sorrows”, “Living A Lie”, “Quietus”, “Tides of Time”, “Feint”, “Illusive Consensus”, “Solitary Ground”, and “Run for a Fall”. The lead singer, Simone Simons, has also sung with other bands such as Kamelot and Primal Fear. Check out Kamelot’s “The Haunting (Somewhere in Time)”, and “Season’s End” for Simone vocals with Kamelot. For Primal Fear and Simone, check out “Everytime it Rains”. Also check out Primal Fear’s “Fighting the Darkness.” All great songs.
