This Week’s Theme:
Superman - Leviathan Rising!
The Superman: Leviathan Rising Special arrives on DC Universe this week, and it’s bringing troubled waters with it! Since we focused on heroes last week, we’ll shift gears to the comic’s villainous half, instead. So, tell us, musically, what comes to mind when you think of the word “Leviathan”?
Be it the DC-related organization and its founder, or Kraken-like sea creature, does the resulting song leave you with your hair standing on end? Perhaps a suspenseful piece from Aquaman immediately pops into your head, or can you feel the lower octave boom of the alternating “E-F” bass from Jaws create a ripple of shivers down your spine?
Give us a look into what theme illuminates the dark side for you this week by posting below!
While lyrics must abide to Forum Guidelines, the songs can be anything, of any genre, as long as it meets each week’s theme!
