Balrog Boogie


Hi out there,

this week, the theme at Macabre Monday is Music Mayhem! Well, the biggest problem for me was to choose the one song I wanted to use as inspiration. At the end, I’ve chosen Balrog Boogie by the fabulous Swedish band Diablo Swing Orchestra. I found them some years ago on myspace and instantly fell in love with their music. Last year I was in Stockholm, went to a music store and what did I see there? The butcher’s ballroom. (Cool title for an album, don’t you think?)

My Balrog doesn’t look as evil as the Tolkien’s ones, but hei, he’s not here for destroying Gondolin or killing a grey wizzard. No, he wants to dance. Would you dare to dance a Boogie Woogie with him?
