Well I can't get enough. It ties the album together, I feel. However I also love concept albums in general, especially ones with narrators. I've never skipped an interlude in Ayreon, Scenes from a Memory, or Nightfall in Middle Earth. So I may be the odd one here ;)
This has been a weird week for me. I've needed something very angry. Well the week started with Tyr, an old standby for my foul mood days, but has morphed into a major folk metal week, including many bands I've never really listened to. Arkona, Eluveitie, Stribog, Korpiklaani, Manegarm, and others. Actually quite a lot of the first two, for some reason angry music with female vocals hit the right spot, despite being in Russian/ Gaulic.
Add in healthy doses of Devin and this has been a week of musical rage. 'scuse me while I go look for something to punch.
Though I must admit that the comments on some videos are a bit... disturbing. A lot of racist, authoritarian, Putin fellating types. So that was interesting.
