Mourn with Those Who Mourn: Thinking About Lament

Songs of Lament

Rock music has a unique way of communicating pain. Its often visceral and raw sound is the perfect complement to the weight hurt often carries. When all within us wants to shriek and scream, metal expresses for us what’s going on internally.

German Alt-Rock Activism: “In Too Deep” by Arson

In Too Deep Arson

Trying to pinpoint exactly who German rock band Arson sounds like is no easy task. Put together a seamless blend of alternative rock (a la 12 Stones), classic rock (Theocracy and Stryper), symphonic rock (Red and Starest), and a dash of just straigh up metal, and you have the sound that Arson produces in their single "In Too Deep." While there is still refinement to be had in the sound, the overall delivery hits in all the right places.
