Nothing else matters...

Thank you to everyone who commented on my blog post yesterday in regard to tolerance and acceptance. Whether you agreed or disagreed with my points, I appreciate the comments that I have received and the couple e-mails I have received as well. If you haven't checked out the blog post from yesterday, please do and feel free to share your thoughts and opinions.

Moving on. =)

This band has been one of my favorite bands for years. Before their awesome collaboration with sexy and talented Cristina Scabbia of Lacuna Coil on "S.O.S." Or their song with Corey Taylor of Slipknot/Stonesour on "I'm Not Jesus" or even more recently, their song with Adam Gontier of Three Days Grace on "I Don't Care."

Their music is gorgeous. I can easily listen to them and drift off to sleep feeling relaxed and sometimes even peaceful. I feel like I'm absorbing the notes as they're played right into my mind and body and it just lulls me right to sleep. I also listen to them often when I've got a lot on my mind because I can just focus on the music and the beauty of what they play. I love metal and symphonic metal is one of my favorite subgenres. I love the pairing of classical music with hard rock. It's a beautiful thing. ;)

This song is one of my favorites. Not just by them but "Nothing Else Matters" is also one of my absolute favorite Metallica songs. So here is Apocalyptica.

Happy Tuesday!

I totally dig orchestra music but some forms of metal I'm definitely not into so I wasn't sure what this would sound like. They are very interesting and I enjoyed it. Thanks for something different to listen to!

Thanks for this video. I'm a fan of the group to. I often have it on when I'm studying. On top of that Lucuna Coil is one of my favorite groups and I love Cristina Scabbia. She's my musician crush :)
It's nice to see you giving these guys some love!!
