There is a band, their name The Zealots, and their new album Only Rocks Live Forever is fire emoji. How fire emoji? Like… three in a row, 100 underlined. They are a legit “rock band”. Remember those?

Seventh Seal is a band with which you should familiarize yourself, if your interest is piqued by big guitars, manly, emotional vocals and metaphors.
