I love metal music. Heavy, dark, gothic, hairband, you name it.
My band plays a lot of that stuff, and I enjoy it. I miss a lot of it from my youth (20 something years ago...oy), playing it in the band helps me relive it. Ok, I don't really miss Poison, but a lot of it, I do.
I was fairly convinced that the only way I'd get to experience that sort of thing would be watch VH1...a lot. I was pretty sure metal had died.
But, it hadn't....It had merely grown up.
Enter the Trans-siberian orchestra. For those of you who don't know it, some of the musicians were in the 80s group Savatage (from my own home state of Florida). When all of that sort of folded, they decided they needed a new direction that would allow them creative license and yet still be metal.
Try to imagine Beethoven and Bach played on a Les Paul. Very darn nice.
They were here on 11/14, and they were amazing. I plan on getting to see them next year, if they get here.
