Ray Manzarek Rides the Storm to the Other Side

Ray Manzarek Rides the Storm to the Other Side
   Cancer has claimed another one of my heroes. Ray Manzarek best known as keyboard player and composer for the Doors broke on through to the other side. It is my impression that Manzarek was the musical force behind the Doors. His electric organ is quite possibly the most recognizable keyboard instrument sound in the entire rock music and his band is certainly one that changed the world and I do not mean only the world of music.

Гласуваме за Depeche Mode

Гласуваме за Depeche Mode
   За хиляди хора в България най-важното събитие на 12.05.2013 не бяха иначе драматичните парламентарни избори, а нещо което се случва по-рядко от веднъж на четири години. Depeche Mode свириха в София. Денят като цяло обещаваше да е зле. По всичко изглеждаше, че ще загубим изборите, а последните два албума на Depeche Mode са пълна трагедия. На място пък се оказа, че вали...

Jeff Hanneman Goes South of Heaven

Jeff Hanneman Goes South of Heaven
   Slayer's guitar player Jeff Hanneman has died yesterday due to liver failure. This was kind of unexpected. While it was known that he has health problems related to a spider bite on his hand nobody thought it was life threatening. Can Necrotizing fasciitis somehow cause a liver failure? Unlike many of his metal peers Hanneman was not known for heavy drinking or substance abuse.

   Slayer's best-known songs are written by Hanneman. Reign in Blood, South of Heaven, Season in the Abyss and Angel of Death will forever hold cult status among extreme music fans.

   I had the privilege of seeing Hanneman play live three times as part of the Big Four of Thrash Metal – Tom Araya, Kerry King, Dave Lombardo and Jeff Hanneman.

Update 10.05.2013
Turns out the reason was alcohol. At least things make more sense now.

United in Hate

United in Hate
   За финал на концертната 2012 си бях оставил най-бруталното събитие. На 19 ноември ламариненият бункер известен като зала Христо Ботев се тресеше в продължение на пет часа от звуците на death и thrash метал. Като го погледнем от добрата страна звукът си беше направо добър в сравнение с други изпълнения в тази зала. Разбира се по всички други стандарти това е много зле...

Why I Love Gangnam Style

Why I Love Gangnam Style
   Recently I witnessed several discussions where people expressed their disdain for the song of the year – Gangnam Style. If you follow the music tag on this no-blog you will probably get a good impression of the kind of music I like even if you cannot read the text in Bulgarian. Based on this you may expect that I will join the resistance and hate Gangnam Style but the fact is that I am a big fan and there are several reasons for this...
