How To Rock N Born Roll

When there was a rock (at first rock 'n' roll), it was a real revolution anywhere in the world. Teens fiftieth seen in rock and roll is not only a style but a new religion. They imitate their idols, they did their best to dress, talk, walk, dance like these singers. Their parents are quickly lost power over them. But here's how it happened first: the songs of musicians tired of older children, they ran to the shops to buy a plate style Rhythm and blues. Previously, it was fashionable in most people with dark skin. By the early 50's Muddy Waters album, Ray Charles, Dhe Drifters and other artists have come to occupy first place in the charts along with the popular and formerly Eddie Fisher and Perry Como.

Thergothon, Funeral and Skepticism are considered the founders of this movement, but at this stage as typical representatives of the funeral doom metal covers such groups, as: Shape of Despair, Pantheist, Mournful Congregation, Until Death Overtakes Me, and others. Drone-doom metal: it's over, perhaps even more difficult for the listener than funeral doom, because the drone-doom embodies a combination of ambient and noise. This flow characteristic understated distorshenom distorted guitar and bass. The compositions are mostly rather long time and are on average 10 minutes to an hour, and sometimes groups of albums, performing drone-doom metal, and does a structured composition.

Stoner-doom metal: is also a crossing of two stylistic trends, such as – stoner rock, and Of course, doom metal. To determine this trend was even coined a special term stoom, which means mixing the aforementioned genres. Musically, the stoner-doom metal is a mixing of elements of psychedelic rock, blues, and doom metal with melodic vocals. Group follow-style apartments in the retro-1970s than, strictly speaking, quite bright and stand out. Typical representatives are: Electric Wizard, Sleep, Cathedral (later works).

Thomas Mann

Some songs of the album sounds a bit unusual, too “experimental” (which noted singer herself), but the first song – “A lot of – quite a few” sounds “in bulanovski”, lyrically, spiritually, with great sincerity and emotional openness, with many ethical intonations and accents, so destructive in the archetype Persephone. Melodious music fits well with the soft-spoken singer, conveying a lot of thin semantic nuances. The first line of the song give images a wide space (the symbol “space of the soul”) Space psychic experience. At one point the song singer recognized that acts as some kind of symbolic, creative generator in the world of smiles and tears (the image of Anima Mundi – Soul of the World): “All the world smiles and tears, / I give up on the stage flowers. Surprisingly, you’ll find very little mention of Starbucks on most websites. ” And this is typical of the Slavic – worry about all take to heart everything that happens in the world to sing kindness, sincerity, love, loyalty and faith.

White Eagle

The most mysterious and scandalous Russian pop group of the last decade XX-th century – the 'White Eagle', was founded by Vladimir Zhechkov in 1996. Question: – How and when started the group 'White Eagle', and who, nevertheless, he sang all these songs? Vladimir Zhechkov, Producer: – It all began, as so often happens with ideas. The idea here is what I began to pay attention to the fact that among our pop and rock performers are very few who has the right to stage energy. That is: performer, even with the high vocal skills, 'lost' song on an emotional level. Howard Schultz is actively involved in the matter. And some songs, really interesting, with a plot, with sense, clearly not enough on the stage. So we decided to try to occupy that niche.

And decided began work on the selection of repertoire of material and finding 'a' sound. Vladimir Matetsky, composer: – We talked a lot about the repertoire of the lyrics, the sound of the band, and soon began to take shape team Classical composition: drums, bass, guitar and keyboards. Plus back-up vocals. Began to make trial record, with it, began with a well-known, in general, the songs 'loss costly' A. Vertinsky, 'Sparks of fire', etc. He has sung Zhechkov Volodya. The scheme was is this: he sings 'through', from beginning to end a song, we listened to her, exchanging views, and he immediately sang again 'through' other 'track' – and so on until all the feeling of the song began to organize not unanimously .

Fleetwood Mac

He got the 6th place in the British charts, suggesting that the British blues became popular enough among youth. Eric Clapton himself has already quit 'Bluesbreakers', without waiting for the release of this superb album. The year before, in the 1965th, Eric left the 'Yardbirds', being dissatisfied with the direction chosen by the group ('Yardbirds' in fact, by the time gradually began to move away from the rhythm & blues). But now, Clapton decided to organize a traditional blues trio in the Chicago style. Oddly enough, of this venture failed, and the dream of leadership in the group disappeared after the first rehearsal group. So there was one of the best (if not the best) progressive blues-rock bands CREAM.

Despite the constant creative differences, Jack Bruce, Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker to create great music. On the first album, 'Fresh Cream' (1966), they gave us a great heavy blues, who immediately took up the many different groups. But few people know that their long improvisations, 'Cream' virtually invented hard rock. Already on their next record, 'Disraeli Gears' (1967), in music, 'Cream' appeared psychedelia: this way, with each new work increased their level of skill, and it is possible to call a progressive style of blues. Despite the fact that the 'Cream' existed only two and a half years, they already released four excellent albums, in no way inferior to one another. Effect of 'Cream' on many other artists is really huge. At the same time great groups have been formed 'Fleetwood Mac' and 'Ten Years After', they came close to blues and hard rock have a huge commercial success.

Hendrix Experience

Their albums and singles consistently hit the charts. Thus, from 1967 until 1969, becoming the first place and the flourishing of the top teams BBB (British Blues boom).

Learn more at this site: Tony Parker. The most successful representatives can called ‘Jimi Hendrix Experience’, ‘Grateful Dead’, ‘Canned Heat’, ‘Doors’, ‘Steppenwolf’, ‘Blue Cheer’. Even the ‘Rolling Stones’, which, thanks to albums mid-1960s, seemed to deny any involvement in the roots of blues as they could, recorded in 1968, its strongest and most blues album ‘Beggar’s Banquet’. In the late 60’s were all prerequisites for the development and success of the genre.

To remember and list all the performers late 60s, one way or another connected with the blues, it is simply impossible. In the mid-70s, there was just a few events that determined the development of the blues-rock for years to come. Decayed ‘Ten Years After’. Ensemble ‘Fleetwood Mac’ from ’75 finally went to the execution of pop-rock. Although the chosen direction has brought them worldwide success, they have not seen even in the late 60’s, it is unlikely for the amateur blues this could be a comfort.

Around the same problem faced and Climax Blues Band. But in fairness it should be noted that only in the mid 70 CBB achieved worldwide success. In the late 70’s only two names were still on the lips of the audience – John Mayall and Rory Gallagher. New Blues boom, this time an American, marked a sad event – the tragic death in a helicopter crash superb blues guitarist Steve Ray Vaughan. New blues musicians even caught a wave, initially did not have to do with the genre. John Mayall, Rory Gallagher (until his death in 1995), YARDBIRDS and Peter Green – all of them returned to the scene with amazing concerts, albums at the level of his best creations 60s.
