I've always liked how for a time, rather than having something play over the PA, Sepultura had their own intro that they stood in the dark playing as the lights came up. I think of this as my own intro and have been using it to pump myself up for various onerous tasks today.

A song based on this thread about loling metal that melissa may and I wrote tonight.
Got together with a friend a while back to jam, and we ended up deciding to try and record something for the first time. Our goal of creating music failed. Thus the project Tverrbjelker was born.
This is an old skeleton from the closet. It's got its flaws, but when I dug it up, I found I still like the story it tells. Lyrics inside.
