Save The Dragons
Written by Thomas, September 2005
must come to a stop, the pointless slaying of dragons. Soon these wonderful
and magic creatures will reach a point of extinction just like the dinosaurs,
and I hold the powermetallians and their fetishism for dragons to blame.
Well, I don't know who started it all but Beowulf was at it quite early,
but if we look at it more recently I have seen footage of Ronnie James
Dio travelling around the world in the eighties with a dragon just like
a god damn freak circus. Every night this dragon was brought on stage
to engage in a fight with this evil little man, (yes evil, he invented
the universal sign of heavy metal with the raising of the horns on the
fist, I mean, seriously, he has got to be a Satanist as well as a sadistic
animal tormentor) and you could only guess the outcome of these battles.
The dragon was slaughtered on a daily basis, where were the animal activists
proclaiming animal rights then?
nd this tormenting
has continued, endless times we have heard metal bands bragging about
their battles and victories against these innocent creatures. Italian
band Rhapsody must solely have been killing half of what dragons there
are left while Dream Evil that even named and album Dragonslayer stands
for a high number of kills as well, and there are many others, believe
me. Now tell me what have these animals ever done to deserve such treatment?
Guarding a chest of gold, is that reason enough to be killed by greedy
metal heads? Spitting fire or the ability to fly, isn't that skills we
should encourage and perhaps learn from instead by being intimidated by?
Keeping princesses under lock and key in the tallest tower in a country
far far away, who can blame them, who wants to let go of beauty when you've
ragons has by modern
society been painted out as fierce and hostile creatures but I say it
is time we change that picture and start embracing these lovely reptiles.
We all live under the same sun and all of the earth's species should live
in harmony with the nature and respect each other. Except for spiders,
I hate spiders, why can't they change direction and start to slay spiders
n a more serious
note, some short facts about dragons:
- Dragon comes from the Greek word drakon meaning snake.
- In western civilization the dragon is a fabulous beast and the bigger
and more fierce it was the greater was the courage and heroism from
the knight who slain it. It is also pointed out in the bible as a symbol
- By Chinese tradition the dragon is surrounded by cult as with its
help man wants to control water and protect oneself from evil spirits.
It is also a symbol for fertility.
