Dont Let Him Kill Your Soul

I don't beg,
I don't borrow,
I steal.

The Sounds

You know its hurts so bad just like I knew that it would,
But I'd do it again, do it again if I could.
This is another band Ive been meaning to bring up even before the mini-hiatus of this blog. The Sounds is a Swedish New Wave band with influences of punk and pop/Synth-pop. They somehow reminds me of The Clicks in retrospect with bands also such as Roxette and Ace of Base. +/-

The Sounds
is about to release their new album "Crossing the Rubicon" this 2nd of June. They are set also to play series headlining No Doubt as part of the latter's Summer Tour 2009. Proceed to their page for additional details.

4 Songs and a Fight (Crossing the Rubicon)
No One Sleeps When Im Awake (Crossing the Rubicon)
My Lover (Crossing the Rubicon)
Rock and Roll (Living in America)
Tony the Beat (Dying to Say This to You)
Painted by Numbers (Dying to Say This to You)


In some manner their songs have formula that got enough drums and bass along with the resonating vocals for one to keep going. Just pulsating and stellar, and I couldn't wait for them to release new stuff as of now I have been loving the songs from their upcoming new album.

Will you meet me in the middle, will you meet me in the air?
Will you love me just a little, just enough to show you care?
Someone told me that rock stars can sing anything. America for example does that exquisitely. Back when the rock revolution was just given birth in the pop culture, and new wave or heavy metal music was a mother's version of evil, America became popular with their light/folk take on rock music. America is best known for their songs, “A Horse With No Name” and “Sister Golden Hair". Not really a favorite of critics (remember The Beatles?), but they somehow crawled their way and still continually doing so with their exceptionally successful and commercially selling singles and albums. +/-

This is coming from somebody who was born two decades after so you really don't have to believe me. You know how it goes, listen and decide. Just a reminder, vinyls and cds would be more convenient if ever you'll like them.

A Message

The clock keeps ticking and my thoughts are streaming.
These five months have been excessively busy for me and it was not a no-brainer if I should continue tending this blog. In the first place, I never intended for this blog to be as updated as possible. Honestly, I think I put up this as a form of a creative release and a way of looking for people who appreciate music the way I do. So, for the next weeks, months and hopefully years, yours truly will post only random entries and feature bands or singers that necessarily wouldn't be up-to-date with the current music fiasco. One thing's for sure, craptastic sound would be generally filtered as entries would be minimize. I wouldnt necessary promote bands or labels and Metaphor might become my own personal journal. Now I know this isn't any good news but be sure to check out other amazing blogs if you like to stick around to a more all-around and active blog such as Popsense, Persona Sauna, Pretty Much Amazing, TSURURADIO, Pasta Primavera, WAWSTF and Pigeons and Planes.

Thank you for all the support. This blog would be forever grateful. BBS!
