Best Ever Mountain Scenery Song (And Safety Advice)
« on: July 15, 2020, 01:58:52 am »
Lots of caves are in mountain regions and they have a whole majesty of their own. There have been songs and musicals and films to reflect that.  In order to get to the caves you need to get your bearings and take heed of the weather and the will of the mountain gods.
In terms of safety advice, if something goes wrong you need to signal the various services for assistance.  Typically this has been the likes of a whistle, or flares, or heliograph, or such technological witchcraft like an EPIRB or PLB.
The sensible alternative is to take a melodic death metal singer with you.  This both satisfies the people needed on the team to explore the cave, ensuring morale, and also a very useful emergency alert system.
So to combine both the wondrous need of the mountains, and the extensive communication in one go I'll start with Rage of Light and their version of Twilight of the Thunder God. Their singer Melissa Bonny has quite a nice voice, and their 'Aqua Metal' is entertaining too.
As ever thoughts and comment welcome.

Hm - that certainly woke me up.

Mind you, she needs to get that strep throat sorted out . . .  ;)

Lurking somewhere on Youtube is a video called something like "Cookie Monster - founding father of Death Metal vocals". I must have a look for it and post a link here...

Edit - found it.

My favourite bit of scenery above and below ground is the waterfall.

That is an appallingly dodgy t-shirt he’s wearing. Confirms everything I ever thought about their fan base. Some of my nephews go to the same school they went to. It’s the lack of girls at a formative age.
