i posted this on another topic but i think it applies to this one.
id have to say of prometheus and the crucifix. i love the concept of using the story of prometheus as a metaphor for doing sumthing that in your heart u felt was right but having sum consequences that u will have to deal with. and sumtimes we all get put in that postion. awsum!! and the music just totally drives the depiction. if u know the story ud appreciate the song more with this in mind. ands its just so awsum how they ended it just as it began. just like prometheus' sufferring
and most of the songs are mtyhilogical but when broken down have their own metaphor to which anyone can relate to. the lyrics dont have to be literal. and its just so awsum how they do this with every song. matt is the best writer i have ever heard because of his ability to do all this along with his bandmates.
he said in the vocal technique interview he writes the music first and the comes up with lyrics and vocals. which is awsum bcuz the music is what drives the song. that itslef opens up the song to intrepitaiton.
for example, it allowed me to think about the idea of maybe satan commanding sumone to kill theyre children. if you believe in heaven and hell or not how can u not think about that when u listern to entrance.. im not justifying anything im just saying theres alot of crazy shit that happens in this world we cant explain so why cant that be one. but the music is what allowed me to listen to the song like that. you go form the dark heavy mood to the faster shit. even the hauting aahhhsss kinda sounding like her pain. guys even the solos kind of sound like they keep rising and trying to break away but the song comes back to her being convinced to do it.
and they do this with most of their songs. i can talk about that forver but ill shut up. i just think fellow triivum fans would rnjoy sumthing like this
