    music. The styles of metal originated from blues rock and psychedelic rock and created a new sound with heavy distorted guitars, faster drum patterns, extended solos, and an overall louder sound. Some early examples of bands using this formula and that were credited with the title of “Heavy Metal” would be bands like Black Sabbath, who broke out into the newly formed metal scene with their single “Paranoid” in 1970, Led Zeppelin, who gained mainstream commercial success with their albums Led Zeppelin 1-4 in 1969-1971, and also Deep Purple, who with Zeppelin and Sabbath, formed “The Unholy Trinity of hard rock and heavy metal bands in the early to mid-1970’s”. Many bands over the next few years evolved the sound and then you get bands like Judas Priest, who in the late 1970’s, helped evolve the genre by being one of the first bands to disregard much of the blues influence. Many subgenres over the years were created, such as thrash metal, which bands like Metallica, Slayer, and Megadeth made popular for the fast tempo drumming, the lower register sounds from the guitar, and also the faster and more complex lead guitar work. In the early 1990’s, a new wave crashed into the U.S, with the emergence of nu-metal. Nu-Metal introduced a new, refreshing sound in the metal genre, taking and adding key elements in the process.…

    As said before, groove can be how music makes you feel, how you follow or move to a particular beat of a song. Think of it as this: you and a friend are listening to a song. Let’s say that song is “You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’” by Judas Priest. You both start tapping to the song, but you follow vocals while your friend follows the bass. Immediately, you should hear a difference between you and your friends tapping. That difference in beat is the basics of groove; to follow a beat your own…

    The explorer conditioning technique (ECT): Treat a new task as a quest for new discoveries. To be able to perform at your peak, you have to love what you are doing. Whether it’s acting, bartending or washing dishes, you have to learn to love what you do. One way to achieve this is to technically act like any explorer would, which is to be thrilled by something new every day (or treat everything as such even when it’s not new). It should be as if each task you were making were coming…

    BLOG POST Walking in the first day, I was very nervous but I felt very excited at the same time for my future.

My interpretation of a calling was probably like most of the students that attended NCBC, that it is a divine mission placed on your life, meaning that your life is dedicated to the furthering of the Gospel through…

    Introduction William Willimon states in Calling and Character: Virtues of the Ordained Life: “this character, the cross, indelibly determines our character” (2000, p. 35). He connects how both the calling of the ordained and her/his character connect. Willimon addresses several things that I personally found beneficial as someone who is going into Christian Ministry. For example, he clearly addresses the need for unity between the professional and private life of a pastor. His goal is to inform…
