It's been over a week since I've posted anything here and truth be told, I'm working on an entry that will likely be somewhat longer than my usual fare. This has been and is being a fairly busy week and I realized that I may not get my project finished and posted here for several more days. So, I thought that I would put up a couple of music videos that I hope you will enjoy.
This first selection is actually a bit out of character for me as it features a Norwegian black metal band known as Dimmu Borgir. I say out of character because quite frankly, I'm not the biggest fan of that particular sub genre. This group impresses me however, because they provide a symphonic sound to their music and I find that somewhat unusual for black metal. I also find their overall sound compelling. This video seems to almost always begin with a short commercial, which you may or may not be able to skip within five seconds. Still, I hope that you'll bear with it because I think that Dimmu Borgir has a lot to offer.
Next, I present something that is much more along the lines of my usual musical tastes. This is a doom-metal band from Finland that I only discovered a day or two ago. They are known as Swallow the Sun. This is a performance of a song entitled Too Cold for Tears.
The graphics on this second video are pretty good in my opinion, so I hope you'll enjoy it.
