Amen there, brother. And you got some serious HEART going into your music!
I took Gwen's advice, simply take quiet time and listen. Guardians of the Night did one something fierce for me.
Two songs I showed you are testaments of my life. One was for a friend I thought I lost forever, the gothic one "song for a gentle flying soul by the bonfire". And when the loss was found NOt to be, the song "shout of joy" wrote itself.
speaking of which, both will be played live of course. Shout of joy is pretty genreless, the only way to describe, a triumphant military trumpet fanfare going into tribal drums and then going mainstream with a Van Halen style wild guitar madness. Don't think you can really pin an easy genre to that one
Remind me on my next paycheck to catch up and fill in the missing CDs from your library of ever growing music.
Also, hope you will be at Vegas Transworld when it gets out here. I owe you a beer in general.
The word for the day is NPD. Check it out.
