The song was originally released by Seger in 1973 on his “Back in ’72” album. Seger’s original version never made the charts, but an evocative live performance on his 1976 Live Bullet album became a mainstay of album-oriented rock radio stations, and still gets significant airplay to this day on classic rock stations. He revealed at his concert in Milwaukee, Wisconsin during his 2006 tour that he had written the song in a hotel room in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. “Turn the Page” is about the emotional and social ups and downs of a rock musician’s life on the road, against a slow tempo and a mournful saxophone part. The song was later covered by Metallica, as the first single from their 1998 Garage Inc. album, reaching #1 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks; drummer Lars Ulrich had heard the original song while driving across the Golden Gate Bridge and later commented that he thought it “Had James (Hetfield) all over it”.

Heavy Metal Music as Sound Therapy?

|

Whenever I present to groups about sound therapy or talk with people at trade fairs, I often get expressions of concern and questions about heavy metal music. These are valid concerns, so I decided to take a closer look. My closer look has provided some interesting insight.

Heavy metal music has been a personal journey for our family. Our son, Matt, is lead guitar in a heavy metal band. It is his favorite music. He is a fabulously talented guitarist. Matt is also an early indigo child and one of the wisest, old souls I know. If I need advice, I will often ask Matt. He is one of the kindest, compassionate, joyful and authentic people I know.

Heavy metal music touched our family in a very personal way when Matt entered grade 10 in high school. By the second term, Matt was suffering from a clinical depression. For him, it was a true dark night of the soul.

Medication and intervention were refused as he relied on his own inner wisdom and healer. From a very young age, this wise old soul has preferred to heal himself. Mind you, for a broken arm, he was taken to the hospital. The doctors were amazed at how quickly he healed.

What he found during this dark night of the soul was an expression of what he was going through in the form of heavy metal music. If he was feeling really angry, for example, he would play some really angry music, we would plug our ears, and shortly, he would emerge from his room calmer.

Now, Matt regularly shares with me videos on youtube of his favorite bands and performers. We gleefully share our wonder over the technical and musical accomplishments of some of these guitarists. I also share with him my concern over the content of some of the songs and its effect on him. As a classically trained musician and sound and energy healer, I had some serious reservations about this style of music.

Many people enthusiastically condemn heavy metal music. You may even be aware of a court case or two brought against a band concerning its influence over young people. I believe that labeling it “bad” and shoving it under the rug may not be the wisest thing to do.

Music and art are reflections of what is going on in the heart, mind and soul of humanity. With heavy metal music, I believe that we are staring right into our collective shadow. What is the content of this shadow? Death, anger, fear, illness, sex, repressed weakness, shortcomings and instincts. Welcome to heavy metal.

Each of us is a mixture of light (like compassion) and shadow (like dark angry thoughts). We like very much to avoid the shadow. The problem is that the more we avoid or repress it, the darker it becomes.

Sometimes we have to turn out all the lights and sit in the dark to understand the nature of the darkness. Sometimes that experience becomes the dark night of the soul where we confront our own shadow side.

Humanity as a whole is undergoing a shift in consciousness right now and part of this shift involves understanding and creating a relationship with our collective shadow. As an individual, some of the unconsciousness mind becomes conscious. As a species, some of our collective unconscious is becoming conscious and we are getting a good look. As a result, humanity is experiencing a collective dark night of the soul.

The great psychiatrist, Carl Jung wrote about the shadow and coined the term collective unconscious. One of the things he said was, “To confront a person with his shadow is to show him his own light.” (Good and Evil in Analytical Psychology (1959). In Collected Works 10. Civilization in Transition, p. 872.)

He also said, “One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” (The Philosophical Tree (1945). In Collected Works 13: Alchemical Studies, p. 335.)

The gift of heavy metal music is that it forces us to look at our collective shadow. We have been shoving it under the rug for millennia. It has grown deep and dark there. By bubbling up in music and art, it forces us to take a good look and make some choices about what we see.

Metal Ahdhu – Abdulla Mohamed

Born April 27, 1987

Besides being one of DamneD sToRm’s founding members and main music artist, Dummer Metal ahdhu is also the band’s Procurement manager. Born on April 27, 1987, in Fuvahmulah, Maldives. Ahdhu was spending most of his spare time with computers and opened the youngster’s eyes to hard rock and heavy metal. Ahdhu shifted his focus on music, and took up the drums. His family relocated to Male’ in the early ‘2002, as Ahdhu promptly searched for other similarly minded musicians looking to start up a band. One of the first replies he received was from guitarist Shaax, as the pair agreed that they should form a band that was a reaction against the glam metal that had infiltrated Fuvahmulah at the time. Soon after, Damned sToRm was officially born on October 2010

Today’s Daily Shoot assignment: Make a photo of something musical to illustrate the quote today.

I could only get to the music class of my school, while it was empty. So my musical picture has no teenager musicians in it, as my original idea had been.

Finland is notorious for sullen and withdrawn boys. I see many of them at school every day. Some of them hide a lot of aggression inside the surface. Finland is also a promised land of heavy metal music.

Many boys in my school play in heavy metal bands, and I’m so happy they do! I’d rather they vent their frustration and anger on these drums than on other human beings!
