Dokken… A Real Heavy Metal Nightmare That Ruled Elm Street!
So unless you are a true music fan and have been listening to most stuff over the years then you probably don’t know much about Dokken at this point…
Well I am here to tell you, they are one of those bands that truly fucking rock! In my opinion, they are one of the bands that should be there on the main stage with the other bands that have made it to the big time! Such bands as, ‘Metallica’, ‘Megadeth’, ‘Sepultura’ and the likes!
Why do I like them so much… Because their music has a haunting nature to it that you for what ever reason end up mostly seeing in a lot of the music of the early 1990s! But in this case… It has this sort of haunting appeal, but with the same type of heavy metal music that has shaped alot of what rock ‘n roll is today!
Now this isn’t meant to be a strictly music blog… As a matter of fact, there is another reason that I thought they were pretty cool, and that is the songs that they did for the, ‘A Nightmare On Elm Street’ series! They did a couple of them, the first song that they did, which in my opinion maybe one of the best songs for a soundtrack to have come out of the 1980s… That song of course being, ‘Dream Warriors’ that was one of the many tracks to come out of, A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: The Dream Warriors (1987).
Besides the fact that this song really truly is an pretty amazing song… It has great lyrics and even better instrumentals… It also is setup specifically for that movie! Now I have seen this type of thing before, but rarely to the degree that I have seen to the degree that I have with this song!
The next one is the song, ‘In To The Fire’… Now this song fits but honestly, this is another song that was used for, A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: The Dream Warriors… But this was actually written in 1984!
And now this song does fit… But what I love about it is that this song is distinctly heavy metal in the age where heavy metal was really just starting to come alive!
In the end both of these songs are pretty spectacular and really work for the series… If you haven’t heard them before, check this out! I think that you are going to find that the songs from Dokken: ‘Dream Warriors’ and, ‘In To The Fire’ are pretty freakin awesome and were perfect for one of the better Freddy Krueger vehicles, A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: The Dream Warriors (1987)!
