Three New Videos Give Hope to This Metal Head
Anyone who follows this website, and reads any of my guest posts, knows I love political music. This song is perfect; angray, melodic and deeply meaningful. Another must watch.
No, this is not hard metal like Atreyu, but it is great music that is a real pleasure to listen to. Saller and his crew have crafted a fantastic love song. Watching the video and listening to the song you really can internalize the emotions that have led the band to put together such a tune. Their first album was a staple in our family car rides, and the first song from the new effort clearly suggests that the band has a lot more to say.
Dan Adler was raised in Southern California to a mom and dad, one of whom appreciated Creedence and left wing anti-war politics. By the teenage years, Dan became obsessed with Black Sabbath, listening to the same seven albums repeatedly for 5 years. During this time, his favorite concert experience was seeing Metallica open for a bunch of bands that no longer exist and winning the 1st ever Santa Cruz Air Guitar contest. After several years in Africa listening and dancing to Chimurenga music, Dan returned to have the two best children in the world, one of whom spends a lot of time at concerts with him. What a lucky dad!
