867

8 Apr

Well, in yesterday’s post. It wasn’t much of a post and at the end I hoped to find something more interesting for today’s. And boy did I…It’s the flood!! The big one. According to the Hebrew Calendar, the Great Flood occurred in the 22th Century BC. So I can talk about that but there was also a lot of other interesting things happening at that time. For instance, according to the Babylonians, there was a double eclipse. More wars are springing up around the war. There are tons of things going on, including one epic thing. Okay, I use epic all time as an adjective for things I find really cool. But this thing really is an epic. The 22nd Century marks the beginning of the writing of the Epic of Gilgamesh. In honor of the story of Gilgamesh…

Song 867- “Immortal” by Adema

The epic of Gilgamesh is all about the hunt for immortality, so this is a perfect pick.

I miss Adema. They were a pretty good band. Correction- they are still a band but they have suffered through some line-up changes. It’s been a tough road for Adema as they found themselves lost in the shuffle thanks to the rise of bands like Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park. They were basically taken as Korn knock-offs and despite some very good fun songs like “Immortal”, “Giving In” and “The Way You Like It”, they basically faded from the landscape. But their style has also greatly changed over the years, a couple of times. Like I said, it’s been a tough road for Adema
