Welcome to Metalsouth in Helsingborg, Sweden.
‘Never underestimate the therapeutical power of driving and listening to very loud music’. When I saw this sentence only a few weeks ago I had to laugh, because this is what I often do in order to wind down after a day’s work with a lot of numbers and hours in front of the PC. The intensity of the music and the effect on body and mind has become a way of living, a way of surviving and the keeping of all sorts of ghosts out of my head. The cleansing that takes place gives room for positive energy and all sorts of happy thoughts. Hard rock and heavy metal gives me a positive inflow of energy and makes me happy! For that reason, I have many musicians, lyricists and bands to thank for contributing to a fruitful and happy life. For that reason all musicians, lyricists and bands, who are mentioned here will be mentioned in a positive sense. A simple way of giving a thank you back and with the hope that maybe someone else may find some of my roads worthwhile walking. The start and initial focus of this blog will be geographically located to the south of Sweden, to the town of Helsingborg and its surroundings. After many years of listening starting during the 1960’s, but maturing in taste as a teenager in the harder form of rock and the development of metal during the 1970’s I have recently wandered musically around the world for good music only to land at my own doorstep finding the extremely high quality produced heavy metal with its roots in the area. It will be south of Helsingborg where this journey starts.
