Black Winter Day

Posted by shanoah on December 16, 2009

Well, if we’re going to play goth music… (No comment on hentai Jesus. Mainly because I’d already written most of this post before you posted it)

How about Black Winter Day by the finnish band Amorphis? The actual music itself isn’t bad(and it carries on with our winter theme). But the singing in it is all in one of these deep raspy almost unintelligible voices some metal types love. And the lyrics?

Rawr! I am angsty! Angst, angst, angst. How do I feel? ANGST!

Or something like that.[1] Not that a little angst occasionally is necessarily a bad thing. And I like the actual music itself, so I’ll let it slide…

[1] Well, all right, these are the real lyrics:

This is how the lucky feel
How the blessed think
Like daybreak in spring
The sun on a spring morning

But how do I feel
In my gloomy depths?

Like the flat brink of a cloud
Like a dark night in autumn
A black winter day
No, darker than that
Gloomier than an autumn night
