Saber Inspiration #3

We’re in the third week of our Saber theme. I’ve taken part in so many interviews and answered so many questions in preparation of Primal Song’s blog tour, I feel even closer to the characters in my story than I did when I was writing it.

The town of Maison Rouge, Louisiana is a close-knit community and one I easily identify with. When I watched the video for today’s song, at first I was leery about posting it. I don’t condone stealing and stuff. In fact, it pisses me off like nothing else. However, there are some clips in the video, especially the scenes with the band, that reminded me of my wilder college days. Not that we did anything truly nuts. Unless you call roaming the streets on a golf cart at three in the morning, or tossing old Christmas trees on our bonfire nuts.

It was the bonfire in the video that made me think of those days. It was all about just hanging out with my friends, drinking, talking, feeding the fire, and discussing our future. We weren’t into blatantly breaking any laws. Okay, so there was that one time we were shooting fireworks after midnight, but it’s the country!

When I came up with the band, Saber, I thought about the kind of music they’d play. I knew it would be hard rock and decided they’d be more of a down to earth band, one who plays songs people can connect with. Songs about the everyday struggle in life. Hellyeah kind of has that vibe to them. They have that new Southern rock thing going on that I love so much. I like to think of it as a modern version of Lynard Skynard or .38 Special. This song is called “Hell of a Time”.

Remember, I do not condone the activity taking place in this video. Heh

What’s Playing Wednesday

Greetings! Before I get to the post, I’d like to remind  y’all that tomorrow I’ll be over at the fabulous Daisy Harris’ blog for a guest blog and book giveaway. I hope you’ll stop by for a chance to win an e-book of Lifestyles of the Fey and Dangerous.

And now for your regularly scheduled program…

I tell you, listening to all of this amazing music leaves me jonesing for a good metal concert. I haven’t been to one in over a year and I’m starting to feel withdrawals. Really, there’s nothing quite like feeling the music pound through your body as you’re lost in the energy of the crowd and musicians on stage.

I don’t need to mosh to enjoy the show, but I do like to be on the floor (even as short as I am). These concerts unleash the primitive inside and makes me want to go wild. Oh, how many times did I go home with whiplash because I’d headbanged my way into a world of pain? Eh…too many to count, but it didn’t stop me. I feel no pain during the shows, only the pulse of the music.

So today’s song is going to be another metal song. Remember, next week Olivia Cunning will be stopping by for an interview and song pick. I hope you’ll join us in some fun!

To give y’all a little heads-up, I’ve decided that starting in June, I’m going to theme What’s Playing Wednesday for remakes. That’s right. I’ll be posting songs that have been remade and I feel are good representations of the original songs. If you have any recommendations, let me know. Be on the look out for that.

And now we get to today’s song. The band is considered a heavy metal supergroup with metal musicians coming together and playing kick ass music. The lead singer and guitarist from Mudvayne, is joined by Nothingface guitarist, Damageplan bassist, and none other than Vinnie Paul of Pantera. The band is called Hellyeah and they’re seriously kick ass.

This is one of my favorite songs by them, called You Wouldn’t Know. I don’t know why, but I friggin’ love this song. It makes me want to just go all spastic with head-banging happiness, LOL. Or drive really fast *cough*  What? Don’t act like you don’t drive faster when certain songs come on the radio!

Anyway, here’s the song and I hope to see y’all next Wednesday!
