Music is my everything. I think that it is one of the most important things in my life. You know – a man can`t live without music – just like a flower without sun.
Not everybody can find something beautiful in things which seem to be weird, awful and ugly in some ways. My favorite kind of music is hevy metal, and not everybody can listen to it. But for me it is the best music.
Some years ago, just about three or four, my favourite music was rap. I enjoyed listening to it and being a rapper – wide jeans, long t-shirts and shiny chains, you know. But then I started to feel rather boringabout it – I just needed something really fresh.
And one day I found a very interesting song while surfing the Internet. The name of this song was “Hit The Lights” and the band Who had played it was Metallica.
That was the beginning of my way in the metal world! I was really impressed – “Hit The Lights” sounded crazy and I
liked it very much. Soon I listened to some other songs of Metallica – some oldy ones from the 80th and I understood that metal music was the only music I wanted to listen to and I gave up rap. To tell the truth, now I think that I looked rather silly when I was a rapper. But the things had changed.
For the first time it was really difficult for me to understand the texts of the new songs – I just listened it for energy. But then I started to search for the texts of songs in the Web… and guess what? I understood that some songs weren`t just crazy and energetic, but clever and even phylosophical. Y was shocked! I Recognizedthat almost every band had their special ideas and themes of their songs, for example, “Slayer” told everybody about wars and it`s darkness in our world, “Megadeth” explained that it is rather hard to be a human on our Earth, not a human-like beast. The other thing – with the help of metal songs I improved my knowledge of English – I found a lot of new words and phrases. And now I see that they are really useful!
With all kinds of metal I gather a lot of interesting things to think about every day. And I am getting much kinder – something like a “Mr. Nice Guy”, huh…
You know – music is an international language, just like English. “Just as Jesus created wine from water, we humans are capable on transmuting emotions into music” Said one man of wisdom. I think that if all of us will get closer to music, our world would be a lovely place to live in. And it will be so, I am sure.
