No, you're not that old, so stop talking like you're 40-odd going on 80-odd when you're actually young enough to take on a bear with a sword! Sheesh!

It sounds like there is either some bizarre true account, or hilariously made up story to go with that statement.

So here is the full story...

About two years ago my son bought this ridiculous sword with his Christmas money. It was like $250 and such a dumb thing to waste his money on. I was a little disappointed in him to be honest. If you watch Games of Thrones it was a replica of Jon Snow's sword in the show (the sword named Longclaw). When the sword arrived in the mail I have to admit that I was the first one to start waving it around in the front yard (it was too big to do that in the house). So yea it's a pretty neat sword and I was a little jealous. I mean, buying a huge sword is dumb until you actually have the sword and get to wave it around in your yard like a fearless warrior...then it seems like a really good purchase. Smile

Anyway...

One day my son left the garage door open at night and a black bear came in, took a big bag of trash from our trash can, and dragged it into our backyard where he started tearing it apart. I went out to my car for something and heard this noise in the back yard. I turned on the lights and saw the bear. I then came back into the house, grabbed 'Longclaw' and went back outside. My son took a short video of me in the driveway yelling at the bear while wielding Longclaw and scaring him away.

I sent that short video clip to Jen and that's what she was referring to. So yes, it is a bizarre but true story.


Oh man that is fantastic!!!  Shocked Shocked
I am so glad I asked.   Now where is that video?  lol!

Long gone. New computer, new phone, and I think I sent it to Jen via a work dropbox I deleted. You'll just have to take my word for it that I am extremely brave. Bear have gotten into our trash nearly every year so I'm sure it will happen again.

Funny thing is that I do have a decent sized arsenal at home but instead of grabbing one of the ARs, shotguns, or pistols I went right for the sword. LOL!!

Sword fighting a bear is more manly.

LOL. It is. But in reality if you happen to see a black bear, just yell 'Boo!" and it will run away.

But you've got Grizzly bears in MT XID. You better get yourself a giant sword.

I am almost done with Beyond The Gates.  There are more light songs on this than I expected.  This definitely comes off as a more symphonic, gothic sound.  I don't typically like this kind of metal, but this is well done.

The guitar work is excellent.  John has truly tried to use his playing skills to paint a tapestry of sound to match the feeling of Jen's voice.  

Jen's voice is reminiscent of Stevie Nicks to me.  I would like to hear a tad more aggression in the future as there are also some Doro Pesch tonal qualities that could be used without being a copy cat or clone.  If the song needed more urgency, then adding a bit of grit and gravel at times could give you this.  This is by no means a slam--just a suggestion.  What you have done stands on it's own, Jen.

I can't wait to listen to Children Of God.

Thanks Chris.

On Beyond the Gates there was a lot of experimentation and learning. It was our first go at everything...writing, recording, mixing, mastering, etc. In my opinion Children of God is miles ahead of it. I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it.

Yay! So glad you're giving our tunes a listen, Chris. Thanks for the suggestions. I couldn't agree more. I've been working on better grit-n-gravel-control for months. I've never listened to much Doro (My bad. I know she's the queen), but I'm remedying that as I type. Thank you youtube. Got "Rule the Ruins" playing right now.   : )

Love me some Doro, she is easily one of my favorites.
