What You See Is What You Get. This is a journal blog, an explore-blog, a bit of this and that blog. Sharing where the mood takes me. Perhaps it will take you too.

Menoizikul; Midweek Musicalisms

Another foray into the classical era for hints at the forerunner to rock and heavy metal music. One of the interesting things that has developed with these genres is the use of the voice in different ways. In trash metal, the growling yawl is drawn as much from the throat-singing traditions of the East as from the classical bel canto style.  Singing to the point of bellowing is not new, though, neither is the sense of fire and fury that can be conveyed by the voice... here's one to sing along with!


  1. hummmmm... maybe hum along but sing along??

  2. I enjoyed that - it sounded ‘majestic’. Coronation type music

  3. Gorgeous! Now I want to watch the Amadeus movie!

  4. Hello,
    I enjoy listening to various types of music, but I can not sing. Take care, have a great day!

  5. The music reminds me of the victorious singing after the conquering of an arch enemy!!
