Saturday Songs – April 12, 2014
One of the nice things about YouTube is that there is the potential to find a whole new world of music out there. I’m not talking about the latest release from he who shall not be named on this blog (ugh!), but music from all over the world. Music from people who know music, and not people who need to be autotuned to something that passes for decency.
Take for instance the band Amaranthe. I am not sure exactly how many people in the U.S. have heard of them. I have to admit it wasn’t until last year that I had, in spite of having a sound that just is (unfortunately) not heard on American commercial radio.
This week’s song is not from Amaranthe, but it does feature the band’s lead singer, Elize Ryd. This is Timo Tolkki’s Avalon with Enshrined in my Memory.
