"Farewell" chords

I’m truly doing progress. Today, I finished the piano chords for my song Farewell. 😀 They are quite simple, but as it’s a calm song (most of the time), it sounds great. I will try doing a recording of me singing and playing the song on keyboard. The song is about 3:30 long right now, and I’m thinking of doing some changes in the lyrics and including an instrumental part – this will add about one extra minute to the lenght.

Hellsongs – Lounge

Hellsongs is a Swedish lounge metal band, with Lounge being their debut EP.

I crashed into the band as I was going on a concert with a friend of mine (Eavie) in Stockholm on December 1, 2006. The band we were looking for were Navid Modiri & Gudarna, a quite unknown Swedish reggae group.

There were two bands playing before Navid started, a feministic singer only singing about how all men stinks, and HELLSONGS. The band didn’t seem that good until they started playing; Harriet Ohlsson, the lead singer doesn’t seem to be as good as she actually is. And they started. The idea of Hellsongs is playing classical heavy metal songs in another adaption; the songs are made calmer, resulting in the genre calm cover metal / lounge metal. And even though I wasn’t much of a heavy metal freak by that time (I’m not so sure anymore…), I recognized all the six songs, especially – ofcourse – their fan favorite, a cover of Iron Maiden’s song Run to the Hills. Ofcourse, this song is now as well my favorite with the band…

Hellsongs played six songs on the concert, the very same and in the very same order as they were listed in the EP (Lounge) that I bought signed right after the show. The track listing is Seek & Destroy, Paranoid, Breaking the Law, Run to the Hills, Jump and Orgasmatron. I’m truly waiting for their next release.

Song #16: Desire

It started off so kind
Two souls but one mind
I promised you to be with you forever
We both know this promise never (lasted)

[Calm drum solo growing faster]

I was blinded by desire
You would know
I drifted higher and higher
You would know
Blinded by desire
and a victim of love so cruel
Blinded by desire
with love taking over my soul

[Drum playing jungle-style]

I only did what any man in my position
would do
Can you see from my reflection?
Can you?

I was blinded by desire
You would know
I drifted higher and higher
You would know
Blinded by desire
and a victim of love so cruel
Blinded by desire
with love taking over my soul

I was blinded by desire
You would know
I drifted higher and higher
You would know
Blinded by desire
and a victim of love so cruel
Blinded by desire
with love taking over my soul

Can you forgive me
for what I have done?
Can you forgive me
for living a life?

I was blinded by desire
You would know
I drifted higher and higher
You would know
Blinded by desire
and a victim of love so cruel
Blinded by desire
with love taking over my soul
