The Editors are one of my all time favourite bands and for this music monday I want to present a couple of my favourite songs.
I don’t actually remember when I listened to them for the first time, but it must have been before 2010, because I remember listening to them before seeing them live at M’era Luna. I remember somebody from my festival crew pointing out that they were rather mainstream for the crowd that attends a gothic and alternative festival, but I had come to be a fan of their music already.

The last weeks have been busy and I’ve been a bit under the weather with the flu (of doom). What better to listen to than the pulse driving industrial Doom soundtrack that beats you forward and is composed/engineered to transmit the strong feeling of urgency and action to the players in the first place?

Lily Allen is an amazing pop artist that punches holes in societies chest when it comes to hipocrisy about gender roles, drug use, consumerism, taboos of sex life and a bunch of other important topics.

In this Moment is for me one of the best female vocal metal bands. Maybe I should call this series: METAL Monday, but well, I’m only on a spree of 2, right?
The voice of the band is Maria Brink, may take some getting used to, but again there is no growling and not a lot of screaming. She turns the bands lyrics into powerful and energetic or melancholic tracks, backed up by hard drums and some abrupt guitar riffs. Overall some tracks are a bit more nails on the chalkboard, but a bit more easy listening and less grim than bands like the Nine Inch Nails.

Powerwolf is a, who would have guessed by the name, power metal band that mainly digs into werewolf lore and grim stories of crusades and holy/unholy Christian history.
The singer is an opera singer by trait and that’s pretty clearly audible on most tracks (no growling ;)). The musical style is a bit Nightwish, Blind Guardian or Sabaton (if these names ring a bell). The lyrics remind me a bit of Rammstein and sadly sometimes they’re also a bit short and contain a lot of chorus, but that’s actually the only complaint I have.
