    The Hellband


Finally, let me say some words about “Wicked Game”. I haven’t saved it to the end because it’s the best track, nor because it’s the worst. But because it’s just… awkward to find a Chris Isaak song on a heavy metal album. But with that being said – if I hadn’t heard the Isaak version prior to hearing the cover present on this album, I’d probably think it was a His Infernal Majesty original. Though it is perhaps the most simplistic track, musically – it still sounds like a His Infernal Majesty original, the second and last track on This Is Only the Beginning not containing a calm part, the first one being “Stigmata Diaboli”. It’s perhaps even more of a headbanger than “Stigmata Diaboli” though, due to it’s almost total lack of dynamics. It just continues in the same tempo all the way to its nice grand rock’n’roll ending. This isn’t a bad thing though, as the band manage to pull this off without any difficulties. It’s actually a fitting “pause” from the complexity exhibited on the other tracks.

The 7 Different Types of Written Music

Written by on 21 May 2016

As a bassist, bandleader, teacher, and music copyist, I’ve worked with hundreds of singers throughout the years. Though working musicians know hundreds of tunes, singers need to have good charts in order to have their music played the way they want. I define a “good chart” as a piece of written music that effectively tells […]
