Bands That Start With "P"

Paramaecium "Exhumed Of The Earth" (7 Tracks. 66:00. R.E.X.)

I know almost about them except that they are very heavy grinding doom! Female vocals, violins, and a mean guitar tone make for quite a contrast but I really like it. This REALLY doesn't sound like a Christian band at all. They occasionally even drift over to Forest Of Equilibrium era Cathedral (complete with flute playing). This is probably the best Christian album since Sanity Obscure by Believer or Lament For The Weary by Seventh Angel. --BB

Paramaecium "Within The Ancient Forest" (7 Tracks. 54:53. Paramaecium)

Within The Ancient Forest is everything I like about a doom album. It's epic, it's heavy, and it has a lot of soul. It is full of additional instrumentalists and vocalists. There are two different females who sing, one alto, one soprano. Andrew Tomkins not only gives us his guttural growl but also really sings and even provides back-up harmony. In fact, the first song, "In Exordium", sounds like the Alan Parsons Project for about 15 seconds. Then comes the familiar doom. WAF has the flute and cello like Exhumed did but adds new dimensions with piano and harpsichord. And to this musical mix is added the one thing missing from Exhumed: melody. Forest is filled with some really great melodies without ever compromising the true metal sound. And, like Exhumed this album is a concept album. This time the subject is about the perennial cynic who is in search of truth. All in all, this album is very satisfying. One cannot even fathom why it has not yet been licensed to a distributor. --TE

Paramaecium "Approaching The Forest" (Video)

The songs from the album Within The Ancient Forest are performed really well live on this video as well as the older songs from Exhumed Of The Earth. Paramaecium's true sound is revealed at the 1994 Blackstump Festival and from the live footage in Melbourne, Australia. These clips are possibly the closest we will ever come to seeing Paramaecium in concert. Besides live shows, Approaching The Forest is full of behind the scenes interviews with Andrew Thompkins and Jayson Sherlock. They are also seen in action while recording in the studio where the band comments on the style of Metal they have attempted to develope called "Harmony Metal". The video is divided into five chapters, each revealing something new about the band. Once again this illustrates that live music beats studio sound any day. --ES

Possession "Mad, Crazed, and Violent" (5 Tracks. Demo)

This demo is no longer available and even some members of the band don't have copies of it. Anyway, each of the songs on it have been re-recorded on their subsequent recordings. --TE

Possession "The Unnameable Suffering" (3 Tracks. . Demo)

This disc starts off with a killer guitar sound that doesn't let up. Are you guys sure this is a demo? Reminiscent of prime Kreator and Carcass. The middle track is the original version of "Sounds Of Sorrow" which is polished up on Eternally Haunt. --TE

Possession "Eternally Haunt" (10 Tracks. 50:00. Independant)

Send your family off on vacation before cranking this extreme album. The beginning of this CD will literally scare the Hell out of them. The art work, which is really well done, depicts a tattered angel knocking on a door (much like a famous picture of Jesus). On the back a demonic creature is depicted conducting some sort of occultic ritual. At first glance someone may mistake this for a satanic album. Lyrically, Possession has a similar tack. I refer to it as the Edgar Allen Poe approach. You get someone's interest with the macabre and then hit them with a message. You see, I'm not calling Poe a Christian, but if you remember "The Telltale Heart" you'll recognize that it contains a message about guilt. Why can't it be done with music? Possession has been labeled an 80's band; which is true to a degree. They do sound a bit like many bands from the 80's--many of whom are still around, I might add. They actually sound like a synthesis of several bands, mostly European. At first listen I was immediately reminded of Kreator, Paradox, Nuclear Assault, and the more recent Carcass. Vocally, Nyk Edinger sounds like an impressionist. He greatly resembles the vocalists from the above mentioned bands, but then, surprisingly, he throws in a wail that sounds like Dale Thompson from the first two Bride albums. And then, he doesn't sound too unlike King Diamond from Mercyful Fate or Anonymous from Horde. See what I mean? He's really diverse. All in all, Eternally Haunt is as interesting an album but much more diverse musically than The Unnamable Suffering. The production is also better. It will be, I believe, an instant classic. There is a bit of controversy surrounding this album. In an interview with Subversive Agenda #2 Nyk Edinger (vocalist) talks about the band's good experience working with Metal Merchant records. Soon after, in an information piece from MM the president had some harsh words for the band calling them babies. Possession responded by accusing the company of not honoring their commitments. It's unfortunate to see something like this happen. Finally, I received a letter from Nyk Edinger explaining how the record label never fulfilled their contract. Could this be telling us something about Satan? Is he afraid of this band? --TE

Possession "Scourge And Fire" (3 Tracks. Possession)

Next to Horde Possession has written the book on authentic. You know this is true when Thomas Pascual, an authority on black metal bands, speaks well of them. But I'm sure there are some Christian metal fans out there who still find Possession a little hard to take. I doubt this bothers Possession. It appears to me that they are aiming their message to those outside of the church. And I'd say that of all the bands trying to reach out to the non-Christian metal world Possession has the greatest chance of making an impact. Now, about this disc. It has only three songs and is only about 3" from edge to edge. It comes in a little paper cover that reminds me of a large matchbook. One song is new, "Scourge And Fire". It is an intense barrage of Speed Metal which has lots of Scripture imbedded in the lyrics. Once again I'm reminded of bands like Kreator, older Carcass, etc. The second song, "Danse Macabre" has more of a Classic/Black Metal sound and appeared on their original demo. The third song's title is not given because it is a cover tune and they want to make you wonder. I'll not give it away except to say that probably few of you own a Mercyful Fate album. Speaking of MF. On this disc, when Nyk does a falsetto wail, it sounds less like Dale Thompson now and more like King Diamond. This three song E.P. is offered free to those of us who already own Eternally Haunt or as a bonus to those of you who order EH from them for only $11. --TE

Precious Death "Southpaw" (Tracks. Metro One)

Precious Death "If You Must" (13 Tracks. Metro One)

Precious Death "Precious Death" (Tracks. Metro One)

Bands That Start With "Q"

Bands That Start With "R"

Recon "Behind Enemy Lines" (10 Tracks. Intense. 1990)

This classic Metal album came out about the same time as Deliverance's Weapons Of Our Warfare. Both of these albums feature the lead guitar and producing talents of George Ochoa. While Weapons was more Thrash, this one was more classical, featuring a high-pitched tenor vocalist. All in all, this is a supreme disc and should be re-issued. The title song, incidentally, was written by Jimmy P. Brown. --TE

Red Sea "Blood" (Tracks. Rugged) Another retro-Metal release from Rugged. It featured bluesy Led Zepplin-like guitars and former Die Happy vocalist Robyn "Kyle" Basauri. --TE

Resistance "Unashamed" (5 Tracks. Demo)

This five song demo from Jason Catizone is a one-man hardcore/rap offering. It is very similar to XL and DBD, Twelth Tribe, Crucified, etc. The musical hooks are very streetwise and demonstrate a lot of potential. Lyrics are straight-ahead and to the point. The only real downside to this demo is that the vocals are kind of blaring (remember, "Demo" is the key word here). I believe that people into hardcore/rap will find this a good deal at $5 from the address above. Jason reports that it has already sold well. --TE

Resurrection Band "Awaiting Your Reply" ( Tracks. . Starsong)

Resurrection Band "Rainbow's End" (Tracks. . Starsong) Resurrection Band "Colours" (Tracks. . Light)

Resurrection Band "Mommy Don't Love Daddy Anymore" (Tracks. . Light)

Resurrection Band "DMZ" (Tracks. . Light)

Resurrection Band "The best of Rez: Music To Raise The Dead" (Tracks. . Light)

I often wonder how a label picks the best hits of a band like Rez. Anyway, here is a collection of tunes from the three albums on the Light label that are representative of that era. It was released the same time as "Live Bootleg". --TE.

Rez "Live Bootleg" (Tracks. . Sparrow)

Rez "Hostage" (Tracks. . Sparrow)

Rez "Between Heaven And Hell" (Tracks. . Sparrow)

Rez "Silence Screams" (Tracks. . GRRR/Ocean)

Rez "Innocent Blood" (Tracks. . GRRR/Ocean)

Rez "Civil Rights" (Tracks. . GRRR/Ocean)

Rez "XX"

Rez "Reach Of Love" (Tracks. . GRRR/Ocean)

Resurrection Band "The Light Years" (21 Tracks. 74:08. Light)

Another collection of tunes from the albums on the Light label. There's nothing new here but it is a good representative of the music from that era (except that "Stark/Spare" is not on it). Another advantage is some autobiographical information provided by Glenn Kaiser. --TE

Resurrection Band "Lament" (Tracks. . GRRR/Ocean)

I must confess (almost embarrassingly) that I began to feel a little bored with Rez's music. Now I've always appreciated their ministry and all they do, but I found Civil Rights and Reach Of Love to be less than exciting. So, I put off buying this one. I am glad, however, that I finally did buy it. What a difference. You begin by noting that the name had been changed back from Rez to Resurrection Band. That ought to tell you something. The music on this album was much more a return to their roots than was Silence Screams. This has to be one of the best ever.

Resurrection Band "Ampendectamy" (Tracks. . GRRR/Ocean)

Rose "Sacrificium" (10 Tracks. . Intense)

Hard, gritty, and rough is a good way to describe this debut album from Randy Rose. It has rightly been compared to Danzig for its down and dirty heavy doom rock feel. In contrast, however, the lyrical content of this album deals with our need for Christ. The message of punishment for sin and salvation in Christ are very prevalent, especially in the title track. --TE

Rose "Healing" (11 Tracks. 37:55. Intense)

This follow up to Sacrificium is probably the best of Randy's work. Much of the lyrical content is the same and also deals with the issues of coming out of satanism and/or abuse. A real dark and brooding album to some, but I think it points us to the source of all hope--Jesus Christ. Of interest on this particular disc is the opening, a cover of Trouble's "RIP". Very doomy --TE.

Rose "Intense Live Series Volume 3" (6 Tracks. 23:15. Intense)

One of the very noticeable elements of this release is just how "live" Randy Rose's studio albums are. The feel here is really no different from his other works. On top of that, this hard rockin' EP was recorded in one day. Noticeably different here is a heavy version of "On My Knees" which was a ballad on Healing. There is a new song called "Hide", which is kind of a lighter sound--I wonder if this was an indicator of what Crazy Little World would be like? And finally, it is finished off with an often covered song, "You Gotta Move" (Randy's version is my favorite). --TE

Rose "Crazy Little World" (10 Tracks. . Intense)

This album was a complete surprise. I guess Randy felt the pop stirrings in his soul just like his brother, Roger did when he created Mad At The World's Ferris Wheel album. And let me say, Randy has an awesome pop voice. Unfortunately, most of the tracks here lacked the "zing" of good pop music, and, those of us who expected some good ole raw heavy rock were a bit disappointed. --TE

Rose "Into The Unknown" (10 Tracks. 42:13. R.E.X.)

The old Randy came back with a vengeance. The last offering from Mad At The World's drummer and co-founder smokes like Sacrificium and especially like Healing. If you were hesitant to buy this one because you weren't too crazy about Crazy Little World, you need to repent! Randy's music always reminded me of the best of 70's rock and 90's Doom metal. I guess you could call this "Doom Rock". Not as commercial as Stevie Ray Vaughn, but very bluesy. Check out "Do You Know My Name". Not nearly as heavy as Paradise Lost, but check out "Past" which sounds a lot like PL at first. Into The Unknown is a lot like a hybrid Black Sabbath/Cathedral and Danzig type album with more of a pop-like structure to the songs--not to mention the lyrical difference. Not for the faint of heart, or faith. This album kicks Satan's butt -TE

Uli Jon Roth and Electric Sun "Beyond The Astral Skies" (10 Tracks. Capitol)

Bands That Start With "S"

Sacrament "Testimony Of Apocalyse" (10 Tracks. Tape. R.E.X.)

Sacrament "Haunts Of Violence" (10 Tracks. 48:45. R.E.X. 1992)

Saint "Warriors Of The Son" (6 Tracks. EP. Morada)

This super rare EP from one of Christian music's original Metal bands is truly a gem. It came out at a very crucial time and paved the way for some really great bands with its Judas Priest/Power Metal vibe. My favorite song, "Vicars Of Fate". --TE

Saint "Time's End" (10 Tracks. . Pure Metal)

This album came out and I knew we had a true Metal band--there were no ballads! Before Saint came along every Christian "Metal" band felt compelled to be "musically" or "spiritually" correct. They had to please their labels by recording syrupy sweet music that made their albums wimpy in a true Metal sense. In other words, they had to please the sensitive people who were financing record labels. Then came along Pure Metal Records and Saint. Here was a true Metal band with a true Metal sound. This album is still very listenable. Check out the killer opener, "In The Night", but the best part is the 3 song epic at the end. I believe the drums on this disc were played by the drummer for Quarterflash, a succesful secular pop band back then. --TE

Saint "Too Late For Living" (9 Tracks. . Pure Metal"

This album marked the return of Dee Harrington to the line-up on guitars. He had been with the band previously and was out before the first EP. At that time he played with Holy Danger. Upon his return Saint had a more classically polished sound. Too Late For Living was the result. This album, however, maintained the same grit and Judas Priest-like style as their previous works but just had that added dimension. Of the three, this one is best. Unfortunately, this was the end of Saint. --TE

Saint "Saint" (24 Tracks. 45:43 & 52:22. Armor Records)

Just this year the preceding three releases were remixed and put together on this two disc set. It is well worth getting whether you are an old Saint fan or someone who wants some really kickin' metal. This stuff ain't dated, folks! Especially with the return of Judas Priest. --TE

Sardonyx "Majestic Serenity"

Savior Machine "Live In Deutschland" (13 Tracks. 74:52. )

When I think of musical talent I can immediately use Savior Machine as a synonym. Savior machine cannot be considered Heavy Metal or Progressive Rock, but they are the perfect musical combination to satisfy both genres. If you enjoy atmospheric Metal and your best friend likes the theater you'd better get this CD. I personally prefer to listen to this one before I begin my prayer time or become engrossed in the word of God. This album is also extremely diverse with some catchy hooks and tearful piano lines that flow together remarkably. It's probably impossible to get bored with this CD. I think Savior machine's music can be classified as melodic, theater Metal (a label that characterizes them alone in the CCM industry). Savior Machine is definitely worthy of being called one of a kind. I was even reluctant to buy this CD at first, but after one listen to the first song I decided to buy it. It's absolutely a must for all music lovers. --ES

Schaliach "Sonrise" (8 Tracks. 46:58. Petroleum)

There is a new generation of Doom metal bands that hail mostly from outside of the United States. Some of them are: Anathema, Celestial Season, My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost, etc. There aren't too many bands in the Christian music field of this genre--at least that we know of. The only bands that come to mind are: Paramaecium, Veni Domine, and now, Schaliach. Since I believe that doom is by far the classiest form of metal, you can just imagine how excited I was to get this. You should be too! I noticed right away how much Schaliach sounds like both GROMS and Paramaecium. Like GROMS, they hail from Norway (a good sign). But Schaliach is far more polished and classically oriented with Malmsteen-like passages throughout. And when you learn that 99% of the music was played by one man, Ole Borud, you'll realize that the Malmsteen reference is not so much a compliment as just a comparison (this is not to say that Ole plays those monotonous, million-note solos). Needless to say, this guy is really talented. For those of you who have a much broader musical palette, I think Schaliach sounds most like Celestial Season or My Dying Bride (my wife hates that name). I would feel most comfortable recommending this disc to anyone who is into the newest wave of Doom/death bands coming from Scandinavia and England. I also advise CCM buyers who want something truly substantive, something they will not soon tire of, buy this. --TE

Screams Of Chaos "Genetic War" ( Tracks. . )

Seventh Angel "The Torment"

Seventh Angel "Lament For The Weary" (11 Tracks. . Pure Metal)

Seventh Avenue "Rainbow Land" (14 Tracks. 69:38) GERMANY

About the second or third time I listened to this my wife happened to be in the room. The first track--an orchestrated intro--was leading into the next track when I said to my wife, "This sounds a lot like Jesus Christ Superstar." Her response was, "Yes, it does." Replete with multiple instruments and such, the opening 2 tracks on this album could very well have been a sequel to the Andrew Lloyd Weber classic aforementioned. I guess Seventh Avenue's Rainbow Land should be classified as a rock opera then. The overall sound of this band is kind of a German version of Bloodgood from the Detonation era (imagine, for instance, a German vocalist in place of Les Carlson. He sounds a lot like the singer from Creed). But before you get to comfortable with that, track 5 comes on, a slow keyboard ballad that is probably called "Loving You". At first hearing it sounds really out of place on the disc. But you get used to it. The next song is also a ballad. This time, however, it is a guitar ballad that sounds like it could have been an out take from Guardian's Swing, Swang, Swung sessions right down to the Jamie Rowe vocals. Either that or Bon Jovi. After this mellow aside the disc leaves pop land and goes back into a gothic scripture reading and then more hard rock in the Bloodgood vein. And then, somewhere near the end of the disc is a hard rock rap tune. And finally, the last song is a fast paced hard rock version of the first ballad ("Loving You"?) that is reminiscent of early Stryper. Seventh Avenue has some very appealing factors in their music but may seem a little schitzophrenic. Diversity, though, is not a bad thing when you're good at it. And these guys aren't bad at all, though the harmony vocals are not all that impressive on the ballads. All in all, I think it is a good disc and well worth aquiring. --TE

Seventh Avenue "Tales Of Tales" (11 Tracks. 54:53. ATM) GERMANY

The first SA album I thought was real good but had a couple of rough edges. Those rough edges do not show up on this disc. Instead, Seventh Avenue follows Rainbow Land with a better, even more satisfying album. In short, this is power pop/metal at its finest. If you liked Bloodgood you'll love Seventh Avenue. Musically SA sounds very much like Bloodgood but with more of a European flavor. In fact, you might want to compare them to their fellow Germans, the Scorpions. There are a couple of ballads which are done well. So, if commercial Metal is your thing you will be satisfied with Tales Of Tales. But let me say that commercial Metal isn't my thing and still I really like the smoking riffs on this album. Herbie Langhans, the singer and guitarist really burns up the fretboard and wins my respect. One other thing, you've probably noticed something amiss about the title. This is not unusual with a band that writes songs in English but don't speak it as a first language. I think the intention here is to say, "The Tale Of Tales" in superlative case. Other examples, The Song Of Songs (Shir Hashireem in Hebrew). In any event, I admire these guys for being able to write and sing in another language.

Six Feet Deep "Struggle" (10 Tracks. . R.E.X.)

Six Feet Deep "The Road Less Traveled" (10 Tracks . . Tooth & Nail)

The vocalist for SFD sounds a bit like Kurt Bachman from Believer's Sanity Obscure era. The music on this album continues their Pantera sort of vibe and also keep an "IN YOUR FACE" hardcore delivery. Personally, I think that Six Feet Deep is more of a Metal band than the hardcore label that they have been given. Songs like "Congruent", "Narrow", and "Meaningless" are good to listen for and the production is top quality. It is truly awesome like their first release. No collection is complete without these hardcore sounds. The Road Less Traveled is somewhat slower than Struggle but this does not hinder the quality of the songs. --ES

Slamcat El Gato De La Slam (8 Tracks. 37:54. RadRockers)

If we ever had to put our finger on the "90's sound" I think this might be it. It is a combination of two opposite ends. On the one hand it has a raw, grinding guitar sound that makes you want to mosh around the room (be sure and clean up the debris). On the other hand it is graced with a layer of pop-like harmony vocals. Take the song "Committment". When the music starts I feel the need to jump around the room and break furniture. But the vocals on the chorus could just as well be heard on a pop radio station. It's a sound that I believe was pioneered by King's X and by the Galactic Cowboys. The music is not so different from the self-titled Jesus Freaks album either. And, it is musically on a par with the above mentioned bands. I am amazed that these guys had to release their debut independantly --TE

Sometime Sunday "Sometime Sunday" (7 Tracks. Demo. Fearless Donkey. 1993)

Impressive but extinct debut from SS. Features early versions of several songs from Stone. --TE.

Sometime Sunday "Stone" (Tracks. Tooth & Nail)

One of the first Tooth and Nail releases which unboubtably established the label. This gutsy/rootsy/gritty/hard rock album is one of a kind. It is blatantly honest in songs like "Blue" and that made some of the more sensitive listeners uncomfortable. However, I found this to be an incredibly refreshing album that blew grunge out of the water. Raw and passionate. --TE.

Sometime Sunday "Drain" (Tracks. Tooth & Nail)

The second and final album from SS. It is just as good as the first. One difference is the fun tracks hidden after the last song "Ebb". These fun tracks are parodies Christian Metal bands. They were done along with members of Grammatrain. Very entertaining. --TE

Bands That Start With "T"

Tempest "Annihilation Of The Wicked" (3 songs. Demo)

Not to be confused with the New Jersey band, I only know about this band because of a friend in Kansas. I have a copy of this incredible demo of a genuine Christian Metal band circa. 1987. The music was straight ahead Thrash with a good mix, an incredible bassist, and bold epic scriptural lyrics. It reminded me of the prophets of old. Unfortunately this was the last thing they did we know of.--TE


This band from New Jersey featured Jamie Rowe (now with Guardian) on vocals and his brother, I think, on guitar. The music can be described as straight-ahead Hard rock. --TE

Tempest "Eye Of The Storm"

I've only heard one track from this release, "Rock For The Light". It was pretty much the same. --TE

Teramaze "Doxology"

Tourniquet "Stop The Bleeding" (10 Tracks. . Intense)

This debut from Tourniquet was easily one of the most authentic metal releases (of course all the debuts on Intense records were hot in those days!). This technical Metal masterpiece provided Christian Metal fans another highly talented band like Believer who would challenge people musically. Instead of just playing straight Thrash or Power Metal, Tourniquet made use of classical melodies, complex arrangements, odd tempos, etc. In short, Tourniquet became known as a "thinking man's band". The vocals by Guy Ritter immediately reminded us of King Diamond (I've heard that he devoloped his singing style before ever hearing KD, but, who knows?). The song, "Ark Of Suffering", a clever pun in the title, garnered Tourniquet a good deal of attention from animal rights groups. Ted Kirkpatrick, the chief songwriter and drummer for the band, was selected as a spokesperson due to this song.--TE

Tourniquet "Psychosurgery" (10 Tracks. . Intense)

This sophomore release by Tourniquet was simultaneously released on Intense and Metal Blade, and was pr TOURNIQUET Unreleased drum solos of Ted Kirkpatrick

Anyone familiar with Christian metal can confess that Ted Kirkpatrick is by far the best drummer in the genre. Since 1990, Ted has been keeping Tourniquet in pace with his incredible drumming and musical influences. Inspired by the sounds of the amazon jungle and the river basins in Africa, Ted confesses to be a true key element in the Tourniquet sound. For your viewing pleasure, Ted has released this 50 minute video featuring his various drumming solos from around the globe. The song K5157 is performed closely enough to album standards, while the incredible behind the set shots offer an up close example of how Ted pulls off Viento Boroscoso live. Among the amazing bootleg quality shots, you get the chance to hear the most unusual drum solos known to mankind. I can still remember the infamous Tommy Aldridge and his empty handed drumming technique. Ted Kirkpatrick has definitely met the standard if not set a new precedence. Am I comparing these two drumming giants? Maybe. I don't recall Tommy Aldridge writing the songs and licks for Ozzy's most famous tunes. Ted has composed the majority of Tourniquet's most popular songs. Also included are some very interesting pro-shot footage of Ted in California and Germany performing before a massive audience. These shots are actually recorded from soundboard, so expect good quality. I would say that this video is mostly like the Tourniquet guitar video. For serious collectors only. --ES

TOURNIQUET: Guitar Instructional video

I've been looking forward to these types of videos since I was 14 years old just beginning to play the guitar. This video is one out of a series of instructional videos from the band Tourniquet. Ted Kirkpatrick and Aaron Guerra are your hosts as you take a tour of the Tourniquet discography. I purchased the video in order to gain some understanding behind the creation of certain riffs from Phsycho Surgery and P.O.D. My appetite for rare videos was satisfied by brief concert footage from the Texas Rockfest and the unplugged set they performed last year. Aaron surprised me with his unique interpretation of older Tourniquet favorites such as Whitewashed Tomb and Pathogenic Occular Dissonance. I noticed a distinct difference in the styles of Gary Lenaire and Aaron. The leads and rythms involved with older Tourniquet numbers are explained in detail which makes it very convenient for a beginning guitarist to follow along. The fact the Aaron has learned how to execute those songs without standing in Gary's shadow is evidence that he is an incredibly talented individual. I seriously doubt Aaron was calling Gary and Eric constantly asking "Now just how did that riff from Test of Leaprosy go?" This video is directed to a very serious Tourniquet crowd. If you are not interested in collectable type music, don't invest your time in this. As a collector I consider this video to be mandantory for any serious Tourniquet fan. They also perform an interpretation of a classic piece from Bethoven.
