Influences: Power and prog metal, some plain old-fashioned heavy metal, and a bit of classical and baroque stuff on the side.
Hi. I'm Jim. I play the piano quite well, and the guitar and bass somewhat. I may try to squeeze in a bit of flute and mandolin as well since I've got them lying about.
I fawmed in 2012 and again in 2013 and wrote a few songs that I was more or less pleased with for what they were, but never really developed. I never finished the epic power metal concept album I was working on back then, but I've written a couple of fragments of it since. I don't have much of a plan for this year, but I'll aim to have fun, write some more music and maybe hone my skills a bit more, such as they are.
Hey, thanks for the comment on "Sokean silmän akoluutti", really appreciate it! Yeah, the abruptness of that clean part was totally intentional, kind of wanted the listener to have a "what now" moment : D I guess the part you're referring to could be translated something like "a grip on the cold handle, power from the warm flesh" or something like that.
Thank you so much for your supportive comments on my skirmish song I'm Back. Much appreciated!
Thanks for your positive comments on my song "I'm Back". With this line you summed up exactly what I was trying to achieve:
"That craving is truly pleased that it's elbowed its way back into its victim's life. Evil thing that it is!"
Yes! That's why the happy sounding setting for a very dark subject indeed. That's why you always seen devils laughing and smiling in Medieval images, I guess.
I imagine the ant colony would approve of a recorder ensemble...
Thanks for the listen and comment on my week 2 challenge song!
Welcome back! I started FAWMing while you were away
