Just a little info on Witten:
Witten is a tiny gem in Germany’s Ruhr region, lapped by the River Ruhr and considered to be the birthplace of the Ruhr’s rich mining industry. Today, this beautiful town woos tourists with a number of unique mine-themed attractions: industrial museums, hiking trails dotted with remnants of the industry, and exciting mine tours. Let’s plan a wonderful short getaway to Witten.
The guys are banging it out:
Well my HeadBangers there is something about these bands from Germany that just grabs me. I have been told I have “the ear”. I can tell where a band is from by listening to their music. I know it’s weird but it’s true. Like Finland, the bands have a distinct sound, which is hard for me to explain to someone but I can always spot them. The same is with Germany. I love this band, and I cannot wait to hear more from them.
Well that’s it for this week my HeadBangers. Join me next week for another band and another song. In the mean time, don’t stand to close to the fire if you can’t handle the burn…..
