Description
um, this is the first track on the CD After The Math.
It starts with Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries and then sorta peters out all together. That's a metaphor.

Ride of the valkyries _Death By Anonymity


Screech owl screamin’ in the mid of the night
If you could find me baby, things would be all right
Summer mist hangin’ on the valley floor
I’ll let you in baby if you pick the right door

Death, by anonymity
A memory in a mystery
That ain’t the way that things should be

One of many symptoms down the rabbit hole
Lookin’ over your shoulder like a cop on parole
Comin’, stayin’, goin’, ah the mind how it reels
You brought it on yourself, tell me just how that feels

Death, by anonymity
A memory in a mystery
That ain’t the way that things should be


Plain grey town, eyes of deep brown
Golden band, by me stand


Prairie twister twistin’, take your thoughts on the wind
An EMP exploded and the rabbit just grinned
The ridicule is minor it’s the slap in the face
Something that was nothing won’t leave any trace

Death, by anonymity
A memory in a mystery
That ain’t the way that things should be

I love the way the bats eyes are peering out between the text on your song art. Plus, your song description made me laugh aloud! It put me in the mood to hear this experimental interpretation of a Germanic classic! (Which was well done!)

The opening guitar riff ascending into the song part was way cool. I wish you'd have put the lyrics up, as the lyrics are kind of growly in my old ears, more like a bear than a bat. That guitar is a killer. Might be a tad hot in spots, and the vocals (and bass) a tad soft. Cool ideas, but I kinda wanted a reprise of the Valkyries motif somewhere before or at the end, just to tie it together. Nice track.

thanks Tobin
Excellent comments as usual. I'm currently going back and forth on the reprise thing. I like the idea, just can't quite figure it out yet :)

Vell, I like Vagner's
... Walkyries. During the first half I couldn't help but think - The Bakay Horror Picture Show. Then things settled down into a right nice retro rock tune. Nice wah. And the singer ain't too bad...

btw...
I want to echo Tobin's idea of a reprise... with some kind of variation from the beginning. Slower, different octave - instruments?... that fades out. Just my mad two cents. cheers...

yeah
I like the fading out at the end thing . . . maybe a couple of acoustic guitars playing off the melody . . .

Just for...
... old time's sake, we should, at least, try to do one more collab before they cart us off the old folk's home.

Later, dude...
