I like many kinds of music but I prefer Heavy Metal. I like
groups/singers like Acheron, António Variações, Beatles, Billy Idol,
Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Gipsy Kings, Guns’n’Roses, Iron Maiden, Kenny
Rogers, King Diamond, Manowar, Mata Ratos, Martinho da Vila, Metallica, Napalm Death, Pedro
Abrunhosa, Plasmatics, Prince, Queen, Ratos de Porão, Santana, Scooter,
Slayer, Spice Girls, S.P.O.C.K, etc.
I like to sit at the computer and listen to music in the background.
Even music makes one learn new things… with the Black Metal group
"Acheron" I learned the expression:
"The invisible crutch of the weak" which
With the artist "Roger Waters" I learned the
expression: "Old timer, who you gonna kill next?"
referring to the rotten old men in power who keep the world away
With "Metallica", in one of their best albums ever, called
Lightning", I heard: "Out for my own, out to be free.
One with my mind, they just can't see. No need to hear things that they say.
Life is for my own to live my own away".
With "Evanescence" I learned the expression:
"These wounds won't seem to heal… this pain is just
too real… there's just too much that time cannot erase".
With Amorphis I heard: "Still searching for my way,
the right way to be. Still pondering what I've done. I'm still thinking what
I've said, still finding from within. And all that I know is still not
I am not the kind of person who enjoys all songs of each album… I
usually only like a few, but there were some exceptions here and there which
means that those groups/singers were really good in that particular album.
I am also after old albums which I had in vinyl and which I want now to find
in CD format. Some of them are very old and hard to find, but I have found
some already. I also noticed that some are very expensive in my country,
while, if bought from international stores like Amazon, they are a lot
cheaper even with the postage included.
Just to pay a little tribute to my cousin who died in a car
accident in May 2005.
Ed Sant'Ana was born in Mozambique on 12.Feb.1966
with the astrological sign of Aquarius.
Composer, guitar player, singer and producer, he believed in and said that:
"Music has various forms but only one touches us, the
one that comes from the soul with the purpose to cure suffering, loneliness
and sadness. That gift is given only to certain persons and they have the compromise to
spread it as prophets messengers of Peace and Love… and so, it
happens with the one who isn't a musician but who has the
gift to pacify, spread tranquillity, love and truth".
Ed started his musical path after he decided to replace the football fields
with the music stages. A self-taught person, with music of Carlos Santana,
George Benson, Pat Matheny and others, he dedicated endless hours, with the
guitar in his bedroom, learning to enrich, to strengthen his spirit and soul as
a guitar player.
During his last three years, associated with Edgar Pinto, his cousin, their
dreams fulfilled with the opening of a studio, opening the doors to those
who had an inspiration for creating, composing and give opportunity to
people to record what goes in their souls. From their partnership a project
named "Terra e Ambiente" was created, the
joining of two styles: "Terra"
— the hot sounds, pure, mystic and spiritual coming from the soul.
balanced sounds and harmony coming from the technological environment
and unique sonority.
Ed dedicated a big part of his life to his songs. After he passed away, his
parents found a large collection of songs which he had worked on, and
released two albums:
— Sagrado (Sacred);
— Selvagem (Wild).
