One of my Gentle Readers sent me this link in an e-mail, saying that I would probably appreciate this song.
I watched it, and then listened to it without watching the video. It's more complex than I would have imagined, and very allegorical.
The title -- "Winterborn" -- intrigued me, and I don't ever recall coming across a reference to "Winterborn" before, so I started drifting about the 'Net to sate my curiosity.
On the message board for the band, one poster related that this song was inspired by an American military helicopter pilot in Afghanistan who was shot down and killed while trying to rescue civilians.
I have no way to verify this, but I like it.
I've never heard of this group before, and I've not yet listened to any of their other songs, but this song and the story behind it makes me hope they achieve their dreams.
During my research, I also discovered that author John Ringo has adopted this song as the theme for his "Ghost" series of books -- here's hoping the extra exposure brings good things to the band.
