    Will and Thunder Welcome MN Gothic Metal Band, Heliosaga

    in Rock Music

    Heliosaga- “Towers In The Distance” is the anticipated album rooted deep in European tradition, combining the best elements of power, symphonic, and gothic metal. Drawing comparisons from such bands as Xandria, Delain, and Leaves Eyes.

    The name Heliosaga is a metaphor derived from helios, the Greek word for sun, and saga meaning the story/ history; thus, Heliosaga represents the journey of life. 

    “Towers In The Distance” lyrics are deeply personal, and the primary themes revolve around the state of the world, mortality and the personal struggles that all encounter. Mixed by Michael Hansen (Phonomik, Chainfist) at Phon Studio and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Epica, Volbeat) at Hansen Studios. Bass guitar tracks were recorded by Chad Novell (Fibonacci Sequence) and a guest guitar solo was performed by Gilbert Pot (Elegy). 

    Heliosaga was founded in 2010 by Damien Villarreal (keys/guitar) in San Antonio, Texas, soon after joined by Jordan Ames (drums). By September of 2010, the line-up was complete and the first practices were held. The ensuing year would see a five song demo, the first shows and various line-up changes. In 2012, Chelsea Knaack joined as lead vocalist and the band recorded the single “The Light of Ardor”, which was released in January 2013. Shortly before the recorded single was release, the band relocated to Minnesota and continued the writing process.

    Ep 72 Grant Wood Regionalist Artist

    in History

You know the painting, but what do you know about the artist? Wood was one of the school of Regionalist painters, but his art ranged from recycle art to murals to stain glass. Wood was born and raised and returned to work in Iowa. Tune in to learn about Wood's life, his art, his Iowa connections, and a new display coming to the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art.

    It won’t happen. What won’t happen? Just know it will never happen. Never again will the Hip-Hop community be treated to a lyrical story telling genius that’s interested more in entertaining, extremely creative, and super informative facts instead of aimlessly promoting negative and often false images that continue to be the killer of the most beloved genre of music for Generation Next, Hip-Hop. Sadly, it just will never happen again. Dungeon Masta is here, and to the displeasure of mediocre MCs worldwide, true lyrical skills are back to being a must, not an option. Born in New York City’s largest and deadliest borough, Brooklyn, served as the rearing site for a future MC who would later adopt the performance moniker of Dungeon Masta. Poised to bring the real back to rap music and I mean the realest, hardest, most in your face and thought-provoking lyrics to bless Hip-Hop since the legendary Wu-Tang Clan is the labor of love inherited by Dungeon Masta. A proud disciple of original Wu-Tang Clan General, the late great Ol’ Dirty Bastard is who majorly helped mold Dungeon Masta into the one of a kind rhyming wordsmith he is today.

    As one of the family members of ODB’s famed Brooklyn Zu, regiment Dungeon Masta has exchanged lyrical blows with many of the biggest names in Hip-Hop to include but not limited to O.D.B., Public Enemy, Rakim, Special Ed, Professor X (X Clan), Peedi Crack, Popa Wu, Buddha Monk and Kid Capri. Following in the long tradition of immensely popular as well as highly successful Brooklyn rappers such as Big Daddy Kane, The Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, and Fabolous comes the “Big Apple’s” best hope of reclaiming Hip-Hop’s #1 spot since 50 Cent. A veteran on the tour circuit and media sensation complements of countless videos on the internet has made the originator of “Gothic”, a new edgy style of music that’s taking New York City by storm.
