They Blew me away

A band that never seems to stop experimenting. I have never heard them play the same kind of music. Each time, there’s something different that stands out. For many this has two implications. One: either that they are unsure as to where they fit in and thus play whatever – be it alternative rock or be it alternative metal. Two: They play different music because they have one thing on their mind – whatever they play should be worth listening to. True as their name, they seem to be known to break the rules. Here they are, Breaking Benjamin.

I still remember how the first song of theirs left me hunting to know them. I had heard a song of theirs on a popluar radio channel, but I couldn’t grasp it. The next day, I typed whatever I could remember of the song. And thirty minutes later I discovered ‘Dairy of Jane’. It was the first song of Breaking Benjamin and there begins my journey with them.

The Dairy of Jane

As I mention in my blogs the usual practice to find out more songs, I heard the next one and it was another master piece of theirs which I liked a lot. This time around the wordings and the music where felt on the same time. The guys voice, if I can explain is deep and sings with a lot of passion which makes his songs so very overwhelming

Blow me Away

These guys are really awesome to listen. The songs I like are So Cold, Breath, Give me a sign, I will not bow and many more.

After all the hard hitting songs the song which I really liked was Rain, because it’s slow “NO”, because it is soothing and the song has a such a lovely meaning. This cannot be explained more, you got to listen to it to get the feel of it
