Album Review — Now is the Time, by Perpetual Etude

Filed under: entertainment, Fun, Listening, Media, Reviews — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 9:52 PM (21:52)

Band: Perpetual Etude

Album Title: Now is the Time

Release Date: Friday, 15 October 2021

One Liner Summary: Perpetual Etude definitely lives up to their stated intention — to bring back the best of 80s hard rock and metal.

Review: Now is the Time made me feel as though I had been transported back to 1985-1987. It reminded me of Yngwie Malmsteen’s Trilogy, along with Dokken’s Tooth and Nail and Under Lock and Key

They do deliver on what they say they’re shooting for — blistering, melodic guitars and keyboards, melodic vocals (see below).

I for one am hoping to hear more from Perpetual Etude, and to catch one of their live shows should they come to the States.

Rating (Out of 5): 5

Genres: Hard Rock, Metal, Neo Classical Heavy Metal

Record Label: Sound Pollution

Pre-order links — When I clicked the “Pre-Order” links on the Bandcamp site, all I got were these Javascript popup boxes, and there was NO URL available that I could copy and paste here for direct ordering or pre-ordering ANYTHING. REALLY aggravating, but this might be a Bandcamp thing, and entirely out of the band’s control.

From their Bandcamp site

Perpetual Etude formed in early 2019, as a project by Magnus Mild.

The aim was to write music with firm roots in the 80s hard rock / metal genre, where there were lots of guitar heroes, more solos than ever before and big focus on melodies. Influenced by that genre since childhood. Magnus wanted to focus on that sound and feel, build on it and take it one step further. When he later met up with vocalist Kristian Fyhr, Magnus had a vision: now is the time to do something about all those song ideas, now is the time to make something from it. Thus, the name of the album — Now is the Time. The songs depict the journeys in life, covering everything from finding true love to the loss of a close one. This is also symbolized on the album cover (by Gustavo Sazes), by a broken hourglass with good and bad memories coming out of the cracks. To learn from what has happened in the past and move on. The journey began to find the right persons for the job, to form a true band, and here we are now, finally, with the first Perpetual Etude album. Packed with blazing guitar and keyboard solos, fast and heavy riffing and very melodic vocals.

The guitar heroism of the 80s is back! Perpetual Etude was formed in 2019 by Magnus Mild with the sole goal to bring back the best of the heavy metal of the 80s. Influenced by the genre when growing up, Magnus teamed up with members from NorthTale, Dionysys, Nation, Shadowquest as well as Göran Edman on “Sail Away” to complete the vision. The result is the best of a whole decade in the astounding debut Now Is The Time, an album filled with blazing guitar riffs, keyboard solos and catchy choruses.

‘No One Wants To Take Your Guns,’ v. 06-24-2019

Filed under: Uncategorized — mikewb1971 @ 12:35 PM (12:35)

This one is an oldie (dated Monday, 24 June 2019) but a good one, as it puts the victim disarmer attitude up front, where we can see it (and ridicule it!) —

YEP. I’M COMING FOR YOUR AR15

You heard me. No apologies. The same reason you don’t need a lion to protect your home, is why you don’t need a rifle that shoots at 3X the speed of sound and splits concrete like ice. It’s an unreasonable risk.

End the mass shooter era in America

But wait, there’s more!

Just about every time one of the DNC-affiliated victim disarmers spouts off with this sort of nonsense, there’s a “conservative” Republican who chimes in to offer support

Replying to @Nate_McMurray

As unpopular as it may be with my fellow conservative Republicans, I’m kind of with you on this.

I want us to always have the right to bear arms, has to be some limitations. I don’t want people to own hand grenades, or AR15’s with a bump stock and 100 round magazine.

Impeach the President?

I vote yes. While we’re at it, let’s impeach the Speaker of the House, the House Minority Leader and the Senate Pro Temp. In fact, let’s impeach every sitting member of Congress, their administrative assistants, the fat lady at the Dept of Education and every other bureaucrat making decisions on your behalf.

It’s time to throw the baby out with the bath water.
