“THE SECOND WINDS” FULL-LENGTH
There comes a time when you have to ask yourself if the supposed openmindedness of some black metallers, current or former, is but an act of terrorism, an act of musical terrorism. Created with the sole purpose to destroy, or at least distort, people’s musical integrity with the adding of the velvet underground.
There are times when I ask myself just how much of an impact Forgotten Woods’ discovery of Lou Reed & the gang back in the barn has had on black metal. It takes only one man to create something that others then see the value in. Value that was thought to be unobtainable before.
When screaming your lungs out no longer helps you get rid of your inner demons the screams turn to somber singing. When the hate turns into disdain the guitars go from being outlets of frustration to weapons of melancholy.
