Overcome - The Unity Of Us


#1

Hello Band (hehe band)

So it’s time to think of the next project and I want to toy with an idea that was mentioned during Gray by one of our band members

So this time instead of coming up with a song title first and writing around the title we could all come up with a theme/back drop/story and of course a style to a song
Example: Love Song (self explained), Loss Of A Loved One (Ballad), Standing Up To Others (Metal), you get the general idea

Once the song is complete we can come up with a title, or the persons theme/style we do comes up with the song title

To get the ball rolling I will start this of

Defying The Odds - Hip-Hop/Rock

i have an idea based on history:
Fedor Dostoevskiy was a member of a liberal society. All of them were judged by Nickolay 1 as the revolution starters. The sentence was death. Dostoevskiy and other members were brought to a square. It was something about 5 mins before the punishment , so Dostoevskiy decided to think a minute about his parents, a minute about his wife, friends. And just a few minutes before the execution the sentence has been changed. Instead of death, all members were sentenced to hard labor for a different amount of years. So i think it would be interesting to make a song that would describe feelings right before death. I think it would be a Metal one.

I was thinking about some story of a
"guy who had a bad day and now he’s in a car trunk". Actually, I wanted to propose a title “Coming home in a trunk”

And it supposed to be some rap/down tempo

@jabinquaken
You mean like Cigarettes tempo/slow rap-ness!

@NickGr if I am reading it correctly it’s about reflecting of things before your gone/not knowing what you got until your faced with death?!?


#5

something about that. Like you know that there’re 5-10 minutes left and you’ll surely die.


#6

wow :impressed: :smiley: , great idea @everybody


#7

@acemasters I thought it would be something kinda Car Radio by 21 Pilots or It Was a Good Day by Ice Cube


#8

I think an ironic name like “Another monotonous day” would be funny.


#9

Exhaustion…with a light at the end of the tunnel (hopefully :stuck_out_tongue: )

Rock


#10

Taken from my own experience right now- Anxiety from homelessness, dealing with others who don’t understand, strong demands upon your sanity.


#11
