World´s Projects that ROCKS!!

in English by

INTRO

Hello guys, I am really glad I wrote this special article for MusicSound.rocks, it is the second article of this kind after “100 Expressions of Music“. This time I am introducing you to some of the best independent bands and from all over the world, the ones listed here are a result of a deep search on the internet.

Some of this bands and musicians have a really unique TOUCH, maybe there is more drums on some of the songs, maybe there is a lot of instruments or a hard kick ass rythm, however all of the projects listed here have a different aproach to ROCK and that is the reason they have been listed here on MusicSound.rocks.

Also, I gave to all of the bands and musicians a chance to write a message for you, so their songs also come with a little text next to them!!

I must say all of the bands and projects listed here are pretty good, however, various bands and projects have been condecorated with the HIGHLY RECOMMENDED tag since their music has an authentic and innovative sound.

Please leave your comments!!Vladimir-Kossma-Music-Sound-Rocks2

SLY ROOSEVELT

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

When first being introduced to Sly Roosevelt one must take a breathe and wait. For it is difficult for the most ardent listener to anticipate the changes on first listen. Relax and follow the sounds carefully crafted and intentional take a step into the lyrics. At first they may be hard to hear for the singer is not trained in the formal arts of elocution and studied technique. He is versed of the heart and he vocally bleeds each word. Feel the music and the words will come.

MÉXICO

Year 2011 Guadalajara Jalisco, Mexico. In the shadows demons hear the call of the Tempter, the representatives of the dark have been elected and the agreement has been signed, Samoan Cazares and his soulless rithms, Cadaver Zermeno lord of time and Calavera Serrano decaying strings invoke the congregation and set in motion the epilogue to the present era of man. Shortly after the call comes to the voice of Waterfalls Hernandez who joins the covenant, and with his brothers carry the melodies of sin and damnation. So far Guadalajara has been the epicenter of the rites of initiation, the time has come, the fallen have to rise and proclaim their rightful place, the throne belongs to the Dark Lord and his sound is the gift to mankind.

 

When I wrote this song I used to play with a friend of mine, I am playing the guitar and he is playing the midi keyboards. The name of the song is “México 2210”, when I wrote it I wanted to imagine a México within 200 years, and an incredible machine that could cure any disease than needed surgery, with only one condition… the pacient could not be sleeping during the surgery, painfull maybe but the “machine” never fails… this means that it has cured all of its pacients!!
