Guitar covers, original music, singing & songwriting, etc.
Sáncte Míchael Archángele, defénde nos in proélio, cóntra nequitiam et insídias diabólica estou præsídium. Ímperet ílio Déus, súpplices deprecámur: tuque, prínceps militiæ cæléstis, Sátanam aliósque spíritus malígnos, qui ad perditiónem animárum pervagántur in múndo, divína virtúte, in inférnum detrúde. Ámen.
Summary of Music
I've been through a lot of trials & tribulations when it comes to music and art in general in my life. Some of them being self-inflicted, others just dealing with the state of society and the world at large. There's no need to go into some long self-indulgent tangent here, so I'll leave it at that.
Obviously, much of this is from my "heathen" days, and though I view music very differently these days, I certainly take the alchemical approach to separating wheat from chaff when dealing with "blasphemous" songs. I do think that it's more subjective than objective (though I wouldn't deny the latter's importance of course). I'll appeal to Matthew 15:11 for this issue: What comes out of the man (i.e. your behavior and actions) in relationship to what goes in (i.e. what you listen to) is what matters most when walking this fine-lined tightrope of what's good and bad for your musical (and eternal) soul.
Disclaimers aside, for anyone interested, this page is a centralization of sorts to synthesize all these things ranging from old guitar covers, to old band pics, to new music (when available). For the animation series, see the X-RL7 page. Enjoy.
