You’r WoW Soundtrack, Part 5: Blissful Beats!

Whenever I am doing world quest, raiding, or busting out my fishing pole to level up my fishing in game I always want to have something playing in the back round. I, for whatever reason, have an attention span of a squirrel.

*Notices something out the corner of her eye ~ oh shiny!*

Here are a few examples of what I have recently discovered that I am really enjoying to listen to.

1 Ember Trio

2 2CELLOS

3 Mozart Hero’s

4 Harp Twins

Your WoW Soundtrack, Part 4: Rocking the Raid Edition!

Thanks to Z & Cinder’s blogging challenge I would like to transition the Music Monday post to a series entitled “Your WoW Soundtrack, Part (whatever part I would be on at the time): (insert special title here) “. I will every so often produce a special musical Monday post that will be at random. You will be able to tell the difference between the post at a glance at the post title. In this post I will be posting about the heavier music I listen to during raid and I know not everyone is into the same musical adventure that I am currently on. That is ok. We are all different and have different things we like. If you enjoy the music, please support the artist in any way you can. Don’t just rip their music from the internet, that is bad kids!

I used Spotify to create the playlist. I am sure this playlist will get longer as I go along!

The Quickening: Skillet

skilletSkillet has been in my regular listen rotation for a while. A long while.

The band started in 1996, and I have been listening to them since 2007. Right as Comatose, their seventh full-length album was gaining traction. I know they are touring supporting their most recent album entitled Unleashed, but I have been hooked to their Awake & Remixed EP.

I was listening to the Spotify service and the pre-made “Your Daily Mix” playlist they put together and this song popped up. Its actually a very haunting version and it forced me to listen considering how different it is from the original song.

Hope you enjoyed the music today. Also do not forget, if you would like to talk about music with other readers of the blog please feel free to join the discord server!

Your WoW Soundtrack, Part 3: Magnetic!

I have been listening to Flyleaf since they released their debut album. It almost feels like forever. I have always enjoyed their style, even when the band decided to part ways with the original vocalist and to continue on with another. I love both of their voices.

However, we are not here for a full history of the band, but a song that reminds you of something in Warcraft.

Magnetic, one of Flyleaf’s newer songs, actually makes me think of Khadgar, in Dalaran. With the other mages. Also the quest near the big sword in Azeroth’s “face” – when he fly’s away. I just feel like he will make an appearance, in the next expansion, or at least I would hope so!

The following lyric’s specifically make me think of the mighty mage.

“Pulling me from the other side of the world, magnetic.
Filling up the space between the stars, we are magnetic.
Nothing’s gonna come between us now.
Always gonna find each other somehow.
Magnetic, magnetic.
Oh, magnetic, magnetic.”

Your WoW Soundtrack, Part 2!

kuru-the-light-hearted-e1522076443130.jpgKuru the lighthearted is a npc located on the terrace of the Shrine of the Seven Stars, Shrine of Seven Stars is the Alliance city hub in Pandaria’s Kun-Lai Summit.

Whenever I see this npc it brings forth thoughts of a particular band, The Kuru Smile.

The song, 18 Black Horses.

I vividly remember listening to this pre-raid, on a weekly basis before entering raid to defeat Garrosh Hellscream in Siege of Orgrimmar!

Evanescence: A 15 year musical journey!

Preface: Evanescence started their musical journey in 1995. I am going to focus on their major musical releases from their first album release date. If you are interested in listening to anything prior please listen to their pre-Fallen material at the following link. https://evanescencereference.info/music/

Evanescence FallenFallen took a total of eight years to write, produce, and release into the musical world. The album was recorded in several different studios located in California.  The first single, Bring Me To Life, release on April 22, ten days later on March 4, 2003 the album was released.

Bring Me To Life, was written by Amy Lee, Ben Moody, and David Hodges.

The song was conceived when a friend asked her about the song in a restaurant if she was happy in her current relationship. When Lee realized that she was not, the lyrics “wake me up inside” were inspired. Lee later divulged the song was inspired by her long-time friend and husband Josh Hartzler. Going Under, the bands second single, released September 9, 2003. According to Amy, the song was inspired by a bad relationship. The music video for the song was filmed in Berlin, Germany, in May 2003. Everybody’s Fool released on June 7, 2004, as the fourth and final single from their debut studio album, Fallen. According to Lee the song talks about other notable celebrities who strip and sell their bodies instead of music to their listeners. The music video was filmed in Los Angeles, California in mid-April 2004.

After a lengthy tour, and Ben Moody leaving the band while in Europe for reportedly because of creative differences, the album Anywhere But Home was released on November 23, 2004. It was a DVD/CD compilation, with the full concert in Paris, as well as behind-the-scenes features.

Before the recording of the next album,  Will Boyd had left the band for not wanting to do another big tour and wanting to be close to his family. Tim McCord took his place. The Open Door took 18 months to write. The album progressed slowly for several reasons, including Amy Lee’s desire to maximize the creative process and not rush production, other band members’ side projects, various health issues, and turbulence within their management. The album was finally released on September 25, 2006. The video for “Call Me When You’re Sober”, was filmed in Hollywood, California, and was officially released on August 7th, 2006 on MTV. It features a theme that is loosely based on Little Red Riding Hood.

The single was released early due to it being “leaked” and was played on the radio on a limited basis until its official release a week later. The North American for the album began on October 5, 2006 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and finished on December 15, 2006 in New York City. The band did a quick Europe tour, they did headling show’s for “The Family Values” tour that ended in early September. The final set of shows ended in early December.

Evanescence, the third self titled studio album, released October 7, 2011. The album’s release was delayed several times due to producers not fitting with what the band had wanted, or wanting a to take more time for the creative process. What You Want, the album’s first single, was released digitally on August 9, 2011. The music video for the single was filmed in a Brooklyn, New York warehouse on July 30, 2011 with the band performing the song live.

My Heart Is Broken was distributed radio stations on October 31, 201. Its video was released in January 2012. The next single, Lost in Paradise, was released internationally on May 25. Its video, released on February 14, 2013, focuses on Evanescence’s tour with footage of the band performing the song filmed by fans around the world. The Other Side was a promotional single which was distributed to modern-rock stations on June 11 and alternative stations the following day. Although a lyric’s only video was uploaded to the band’s YouTube channel on August 30, 2012.

The tour for the album started August 17, 2011, with a show in Nashville and ran through November. At the end of the tour Amy Lee stated the band plans to take an extended break after the tour, to “Figure things out” and the band was released from their record label and were independent artists. April 27, 2015, it was announced that the band would perform at Japan’s Ozzfest on November 21, 2015, as the second headline act, making it the band’s first live performance since their hiatus. Prior to Ozzfest, Evanescence would play three shows in the United States. While setting up to tour after almost four years, it On 7 August 2015, Evanescence front-woman Amy Lee announced that Jen Majura would replace lead guitarist Terry Balsamo in the band.

On September 13, 2016, the band announced a vinyl box set titled The Ultimate Collection that includes all of their albums. The set released on December 9, 2016.

Synthesis is the fourth studio album that was released on November 10, 2017, and it includes reworked versions of the band’s previous material with an orchestral arrangement. The album was revealed by Lee in a video posted on the group’s Facebook page on May 10, 2017, and she had described it as “the synthesis, the combination, the contrast, the synergy between the organic and the synthetic, also the past and present”.

During this summer, Evanescence will be touring with a full orchestra and Lindsey Stirling as the opening act!

I am super excited for the tour, and the future adventures for the band!
