So, i think we should talk about how important the black market is. It’s about damn time, i know (aaaayyyy)
Tbh at first i didn’t think much of it, obviously i was hyped that rise made another album but i wasn’t really worshipping it from the first listen. But i finally got it (like 2yrs late i know). It’s definitely grown on me, and its a work of art!
I have a habit where after i buy an album i sit down to listen to it just reading (ok singing..) along with the lyric booklet etc.. Idk if anyone else noticed but it literally tells a story of like.. Life? Almost like a battle we all have to fight. Not even just one song but the whole album. The Great Die-off is this rage you feel and wanna fight the world. Then straight after is I Don’t Want To Be Here Anymore, like a realization of how helpless you feel and how difficult it is to fight. Tragedy + Time acknowledges that but tells you not to give up bc there are battles that we’ve won and it is worth going and fighting whether on a personal level or otherwise.
(im not gonna make this an essay)
I can’t believe it took me this long to make this post but yeah holy shit
I’ve avoided WTNV so far because I associate it with an incredibly toxic person, but having thought about it, I’d really like to hear a series where the main character is a radio presenter like me. I’m gonna give it a shot. More at 10.
We have fast songs and slow songs and political songs. We have personal songs and dark songs and positive songs. We aim for balance on each record. Every song is like one of our children; some just get orphaned. These songs are the lost children or Rise Against.
The unraveling has to be THE most underestimated song by rise against seriously “I scream to the sky ‘no you are not alone..’” also “there is hope in the roar of a thousand pleading cries” I don’t think we appreciate this song enough guys *-*
