Well I haven't heard of any of those people. Heavy shredding is my LIFE. I absolutely found heaven in that type of music. It takes me to places that other music just cannot. Of course that's just my perspective.
There are a few songs which exemplify my craving for this music. They are all by Skid Row (oh the glorious 80's and early 90's).
18 and Life
In A Darkened Room
If the blood that ran through my veins could be described with music than Skid Row would definitely be the life force that keeps me living day after day... The passion and heart of those 4 songs will forever burn in my mind. I'm in total awe. I think I need to write a poem about it...
