High School Marching Band : Is It A Democracy?

- You may think I’m talking about politics or something of that nature, but I’m definitely not. I’m talking about High School Marching Band. My band director has a saying that he repeats quite often. When he thinks that we are getting out of hand, he says “This is not a democracy, this is a dictatorship.” Meaning that we do not make the rules and he does, which is sometimes frustrating.

I Am An Member Of The Band

- Ever since I was seven years old, the Perkins band was an organization I aspired to be in. When I heard my cousin playing his trumpet for the first time, I was instantly hooked on the idea of being a member of the band.

The mood shifts quite fast and dramatically at times, but this album is still coherent as a whole. “Overture”, “Zero”, and “Extraneous” are the instrumentals, and they are all phenomenal, giving off a progressive/djent feel that fans of this genre love, while still able to show off their technicality....   [tags: metal, tracks, lyrics]
