Ode To Orpheus: On The Darkside Of The Sun...

“On The Darkside Of The Sun” by Ode To Orpheus has a lot of meaning behind it. Morally speaking the Earth is “On The Darkside Of The Sun” because of it’s inhabitant’s and the way they conduct themselves making it a very dark place to live. This 11 song concept album starts out with a song entitled “Road Rage” with all the events that are take place every day building tensions between all of mankind and their issues they have between each other. One day out of the blue… BOOM! “((The Coming, The Beginning, In The Act of, and the end…. of the Third World War))”. The title of the last track, “Darkside Of The Sun”. A 20 minute anthematic Rock Opera.

Nirvana: Alternative Grunge Gods!!!...

Music has taken an interesting journey the last couple decades.  We have seen the rise and fall of glam rock.  Many of the bands that we, or our parents, grew up loving and following are now in their twilight years, gaining induction into the famed Rock-N-Roll Hall of Fame; paving the way for new, young acts to follow.  Some of the bands we grew up changed the landscape of music forever.  One of those bands is Nirvana.  You see, without Nirvana there would definitely not be as big as it was; which means there would most likely be no alternative rock as we know it.  Bands like Pearl Jam, Alice-N-Chains and Soundgarden, though dripping with awesomeness on there own, may have never achieved the mainstream success that they did without Kurt Cobain & Co.  If that were the case, where would be today?  What would have become of Creed?  Nickelback?  Seether?  Would guitar based music be as prominent today as it is?  Would it be okay, nay, dare I say cool, for rockers to speak about the angst and sadness in their lives, instead of just the traditional sex, drugs and rock-n-roll?  Where would music be today without some of its greatest influencers?  Where would we be without Nirvana? Luckily, we don’t have to answer that question.  Because in 1987, after knowing of each other in high school and on the local music scene, Kurt Cobain (vocals, guitar) and Krist Novoselic (bass) formed and band that would evolve to be Nirvana.  They originally went through a number of drummers, eventually settling on Dave Grohl.  The band had a good chance of never actually forming; Novoselic initially refuted Cobain’s attempts to start a band with his classmate.  But, three years...
