What is music to you? It’s a question that has crossed my mind many a time during the past few years as I’ve begun to realize the true power of music. Music can evoke a very powerful emotion within you, even when you are not in a position that the said emotion should relate to. Music can also influence people’s thinking and guide them in one direction or another. Music since the dawn of time has been a way to tell a story, which in a way influenced how we perceived the world. Then as time goes on music was used as a piece of worship, and it kept evolving and music was used to define whole generations, entire movements of culture. Music is the soldier, the shield, the sword, the castle, and the peasant. Music is a powerful tool for good, evil, and the mundane. It can help you get through the darkest days, it can help create a dark movement and influence naive people into doing things that are bad, and then music is just there.
