If you haven't heard them, check out Haggard. It's an interesting project with like 20 people in the "band" fully mixing metal and classical (not just synths). Horrendous live though as the main songwriter can't growl for **** without the help of studio magic. Awakening the centuries and eppur si muove are wonderful. Last album is quite different from the earlier ones.

I'm one of the few who actually prefers illumination and ashes over the earlier Tristania albums. Over time I've attributed this to Morten Veland's songwriting after he continued with Sirenia (almost every song has the exact same structure)
World of glass was the first album without him and I think a large improvement over the earlier stuff before the genre change.

And I can understand about phases. I've actually been listening to a lot more electronic, indie rock, and even pop music lately. But I'm going through the After Forever discography this week.

Very cool, I will have to check out haggard. I enjoy indie rock as well and some folk.....hey put the two together and listen to Agalloch! What an amazing band, they are.

 

Illumination is a really good heavy rock album. It's too bad the female singer left them.....wow, talk about a voice! But, I'll always enjoy the early Tristania too.

 

I like seeing what people are using gear wise-I'm a Grado listener as well-225i. And, I'm already getting upgraditus. I'm thinking of saving some coin and of going all out with SR1 or maybe one of the HE (400  or 500)-but I'll entertain suggestions!

In fact, I remember listening to BWP for the first time and as soon as the DM vocals came in, I remember thinking....no way, I can't be listening to this crap..and then reading the lyrics hearing the acoustic elements, the proggy bits and so on and thinking, OK, I'll give this some time......


Yeah, that's my entire family. But there isn't any better way to convey anger or sorrow and it really shows the extremes of human nature. I think if people slowed down and payed more attention to the emotional side of it they would see it as more of an art instead of "some guy screaming his head off" and appreciate it more. I never actually had a problem with it, though. I thought it sounded cool. tongue.gif

 

I also think that people tend to associate harsh vocals with screamo, since it's the only kind of "metal" that most of them have ever heard. And I agree that those vocals are completely tasteless.

So i'm looking for a metal song I've  heard before that's based off of this movement of Beethovens 1st piano sonata. I only remember that it was foreign and some time pre-2000s.

Hopefully someone recognizes it based on the above because it was extremely badass and  my attempts to write a different metal piece based on this were very ****ty.

By the way does anyone else write metal casually(or skillfully) in guitar pro?

What about symphonic black metal?

Yeah-there's definitely some cross over there. I think the new Wintersun has some nice symphonic moments. I haven't heard any BM that's been put out recently that I would actually call symphonic. I'm familiar w/ older Dimmu Borgir, etc. Anything out current that's any good?

Ulcerate-The Destroyers of All-no symphonic metal here!

I wish there was a band that could blend the harshness of black metal with some tastefully done symphonic elements that provide not only atmospherics but actually tell a story...be nice if it was about the realities of war or the horrors at sea....Negakinu, you should start a band like that...

Someone likes that band, eh? I should give my copy of Dead End Kings another run through soon.

After listening all the way through Royal Thunder's CVI today I can say I enjoyed it. More proggy than anything, but it's nice. Think the wife will enjoy this one more than the rest of my Metal.

Yeah, and I just got into vinyl a month or two ago so I still have to buy most of my favorites. Figured I'd take em down one artist at a time. Dead End Kings is probably the best LP I've gotten so far, as far as art content and aesthetics go.
