Spinner.com recently conducted an interview with singer/songwriter and pianist Tori Amos. In this interview, Tori decided to call out heavy metal, saying it can’t touch the soul and that it has no emotion. Before I tell you my thoughts, here are her exact words (courtesy of Spinner.com):
“Well, look, sometimes you don’t know how music affects people. I embrace that because I don’t think that just because I talk about emotional stuff that it’s not motherfucker stuff. I’ll stand next to the hardest fucking heavy metal band on any stage in the world and take them down, alone, by myself. Gauntlet laid down, see who steps up. See who steps up! I’ll take them down at 48. And they know I will. Because emotion has power that the metal guys know is just you can’t touch it. Insanity can’t touch the soul. It’s going to win every fucking time.”
