Heavy Metal: the Black and Silver

into the whirlpool, where matter vanishes
degenerate star
arm of orion
an iron sun
the forbidden circle
it’s a mountain, it’s a black horizon

heavy metal, black and silver
falling matter of the sun
pulls itself into the past
where there was never, never one

by starlight, the heaviest will rise up
magnetic mirror, scattered body slow
a chaos of metal, river of fire
unlighted crossing the countless blue and glows

heavy metal, black and silver
falling matter of the sun
pulls itself into the past
where there was never, never one

falling matter, from the cross
freedom that was never lost
beyond the end, we’ll be coming
beyond time, space and control

direction – sun light
creation – done right
foundation – before the einstein splits the night
spans a river – star light
become tired – stars bright
world – light up darkness
without end – light up night

heavy metal, black and silver
falling matter of the sun
pulls itself into the past
where there was never, never, never, never one

Alberta aboriginal rock etchings defaced with drill, power washer, acid | Canada | News | National Post

native art destroyed

The attack likely took place at night, to avoid being seen by nearby Hutterite farmers on whose property the rock sits, after being dropped there by a retreating glacier in the prehistoric past.

A power washer was apparently used to strip off the lichen to reveal the carvings and stained symbols. It appears acid was then sprayed to scorch off the painted images and destroy its value for date testing, Mr. Knowlton said.

A rock bore or hammer drill was used to repeatedly drill out the rock to obscure the carvings.

To do all of that would have required more than one person, a power generator, a pressure washer with a 100-litre water tank, a 1-1/2-inch electric hammer drill, appropriate bits, access to acid or a similar industrial-strength chemical, lights, ladders and a heavy truck, he said.

“It seems a deliberate effort,” said Mr. Knowlton. “This isn’t a theft or simple vandalism.”

Another Alberta site containing aboriginal pictograms and petroglyphs was recently filled in with epoxy cement, while another blown up for use as gravel.

In a different type of incident, a rare dinosaur skeleton found near Grande Prairie was destroyed by vandals who had “smashed indiscriminately” the fossilized bones of the Hadrosaur, scientists involved in the dig said.

This is inexcusable and absolutely disgusting. I hope the cowards are caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Your result for What’s your key signature?…

E Major

You’re a sharp one, ain’t ya?

Congratulations, you’re E Major, now start pumping out those root notes on the bass. Yes, the quintessential key of rock suits anything that requires loud and low on the bass, high and screechy on guitar, and open fifths on electric keyboard. With 4 sharps it’s not the best key for winds or piano, but with the tuning on guitars, it’s like the two were made for each other. That’s probably why metal, punk and all sorts of hard rock throw down to this key. E is for energy after all, it seems.

So are you, of course. Energy and noise are what you’re all about! Go for the gusto all you want, friend. Overdoing your bubbling over amount of adrenaline can be bad. And don’t run over old people. That’s bad.

SONG EXAMPLE: Pretty much anything in the genres I listed up there.

INTERESTING TIDBIT:

* As if to drive the point home that this is a key to be played on loud amped up instruments, E is incredibly hard to play on the ukulele.
