Band: Distant Dream
Album: It All Starts From Pieces (2017)
Song: Waiting For Silence
Genre: Post Rock/Progressive Metal
I definitely consider this one of my greatest musical discoveries in the past six months or so. It really came out of nowhere. I ended up liking this album so much, that I subscribed to the YouTube channel that shares a lot of Post Rock type music.
A lot of these groups are lesser known, so it’s nice to see someone getting the word out. I’m a big fan fan of Post Rock, and Progressive Metal so this album really does it for me! It’s entirely instrumental, as a lot of Post Rock is, and it does an amazing job of conveying emotion.
Waiting For Silence might be my favorite song from the whole album, which says a lot, since I consider the whole thing a masterpiece. I really love the energy of this song. It ebbs and flows perfectly, from being so energetic into more reflective sections. It’s really amazing!!! Thank you Marcin Majrowski for such amazing music!!
Album: Karma (2001)
Genre: Power Metal/Symphonic Metal
Kamelot has been a favorite band of mine, and I’ve been listening to them a lot lately. It’s been awhile, but it’s been fun to revisit some of their albums. “Forever” is probably one of their more popular songs, and definitely a favorite of mine. It’s basically about someone who lost someone precious to them, and how much they long to be reunited again.
The song is definitely very relatable. Do any of you feel that way? Is there someone who passed, or is no longer a part of your life, that you miss??? I think we all have at least one person, if not multiple people like that. The transience of life can be a bummer, but it is a great reminder to make the most of the time we have, and enjoy the people we love, while we have them.

I’ve been loving this song a lot lately. It’s the theme of Makoto Nanaya, from the video game series Blazblue. I just love how upbeat and energetic it sounds. I think it’d be a great song for working out, or just trying to get through something that might seem monotonous. Enjoy!
