Foreword from the Author

Welcome to Annals of an Ancient Evil. In this first volume we will explore the fundamentals of how a stereotypically "Evil" or dark sounding lead is constructed. The minor and diminished scales are very unique scales, their use can be traced back to the early renaissance period and can be found in classical, baroque, and romantic music.

In the realm of heavy metal the minor and diminished scales sound eerily evil, even demonic while still retaining their traditional beauty. The splendid and hypnotic sound of these scales have captured and haunted the imagination of musicians for centuries. Now you can experience the wonder and awe that musicians have felt in the past.
