Why is it whenever I visit...

Erin's I come home with Antherax in my head?

Erin's a metalhead to the core. As is her husband. I used to be a die hard metalhead. Which I've talked about before I think on the old blog... I can't remember I'm old Eh?

Anyway, I was there last week, and she had the old metal stuff on, Antherax 's White Noise, Ozzy, Overkill's I Hear Black and Testament. Erin's always been a big Testament fan.

So this past week, it's been like just metal-head-quarters here. I'm funny you love me. It got me thinking, does the music we listen to hinder our souls?

I admit I feel better when I am thrashed out to old metal from the late 80's and early 90's (Metal Church, Sepultura, COC, Danzig, Overkill, Kreator, Anvil, Megadeth ) I feel freer then when I listen to more mellow stuff.

Has my choices in music in the last few years dampened my soul? I've been less creative in the last few years since switching from heavy music to jazz. You would think that it would be the other way around, that I would be more open with more melodies but not so.

There is a theory I read in a book on Ascension Magick, about how the bass note in Metal music is the same note response as our lower Chakras. This same note (and I'm not a musician so I have no idea what note it is) was the one once banned by the church in the middle ages because it was considered "the devil's note"

Wow, maybe Ozzy really is the devil?
