Ahhhh. Thou double posting isn't a rule here! :) It is on some forums, although the lousy excuse they gave me was "taking up too much space". Seriously, what a "WTF" reason!

To keep on topic, I am listening to "Rhinestone" by Xero. Xero is really Linkin Park in the '90s without lead singer Chester Bennington, and if you ask me, they made a good choice in choosing him!

Vitamin String Quartet tribute to "Through The Fire And Flames" by Dragonforce.  It sounds pretty good (Dragonforce guys are talented, but their sound never exactly clicked with me).
Title: The "What Are You Listening to Now?" Threa
Post by: The Ancient Warrior on June 19, 2009, 11:42:45 PM
Well, I decided to give DragonForce another chance and listened to a second song by them: "Fury Of The Storm."

...I think their songs are way too long for powerful speed metal.  Four minutes, please! D:<

And now, before I finally log out for the night, I'm comparing the two versions of Megadeth's "? Tout Le Monde." I've been obsessed with Megadeth lately (bought two albums? Rust In Peace and The System Has Failed? in a month, got a band T-shirt today and started making plenty of references to them in RP boards lately).

Double posting isn't exactly an explicit rule here, I think it only applies for posting like 50 times in a row, unlike the Main Spam Topic where there's usually at least some form of discussion.

Anyway, I'm listening to "From the Inside" by Linkin Park. Good screaming during the bridge.  :D

Same.  Even though it's not horrible, Chinese Democracy is the worst GnR album to date.  If it keeps going downhill I might just stop listening, but hey, I'd probably be a gray old man before that happens at the rate they're going. :lol:

Quote from: ""The Bamboo Forest""
Slash > 100 Axls


Glad we're on the same page.  I mean, both are awesome in their own fields, but Slash is down n' dirty traditional and really laid-back and rational, but Axl's a fuckin' tool who has no concept of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Not that introducing piano and power ballads for Use Your Illusions was bad... The industrial direction they're going in, on the other hand, isn't too promising.

Metallica - "Battery"

Duff is cool too, though~

Hey Paul!

Do you like Phil Collins? I have to say his eloquence in choice of music style is perfect for the culture of the 80s. You see, could you undress on my bed? Now, the perfect balance of finding the tone and pleasure in the beats and patterns of a song, like one of those...now would you stand there and dance? Do it risque? I have to say, it's one of my favorite songs...what are you doing standing, come lie down on my bed and undress...

Oh, I listen to a LOT of different stuff, actually.  I have a good chunk of straight-out rock (Guns N' Roses being my favorite band is a good example) along with pop groups like Ace of Base, random bits of techno, some hip-hop (especially 50 Cent or Styles of Beyond) and a lot of crossover stuff (Rage Against the Machine, Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, etc.).

Another thing is I have a lot of foreign-language music, too.  I have a lot of German punk rock or heavy metal, a few songs in Italian and a few in Hungarian.  I've also been getting interested in Greek music as of late.

It's no secret my fave genres are hard rock and heavy metal, though.

Godsmack - "Hollow"

Beautiful, beautiful song.  A very nice break from the majority of their stuff being on the heavy side (though they DO have a rather big chunk of acoustic/light rock material), and featuring their friend Lisa Guyer as guest vocals did wonders for the song.  She and Sully both have this... "full" quality to their voices that really made the song powerful for me.  Best song off IV (my favorite Godsmack album overall) is either this or "Shine Down."

The last track on The System Has Failed.  Just noticed something in the lyrics:

Quote
When he lies he murders some part of the world, we must find what was lost

Very similar line appeared in Metallica's "To Live Is To Die" (though I heard nobody on either band penned the line, but I feel the need to make sure).

EDIT: Yup, it was a quarter of the poet Paul Gerhardt and appeared in the movie Excalibur.  I know Cliff Burton liked that poem, but I guess Dave Mustaine liked the movie.

*Shrugs* Well, there's only three GnR songs I don't like: the acoustic version of "You're Crazy" (found on G N' R Lies? one of my favorite songs from Appetite and the acoustic version didn't live up to the electric), "You Ain't The First" (Use Your Illusion I? I guess I thought it was light even for them) and "My World" (Use Your Illusion II? the one NOBODY likes, since it was essentially a solo experiment by Axl with industrial music and a shitty way to close the album).

St. Anger definitely ain't the best album Metallica put out, but it's not QUITE as bad as most people think.  Lars just needed to lay off the cymbals a tad. :roll: I don't mind that there weren't any real solos that much, honestly; compared to the drum overdose, it was a minor issue.

Astarte - "Lloth"

I'm not big on black metal, but the symphonic elements in a the few songs I've listened to by this all-female band mix things up quite nicely.  Tristessa's one of the only women in metal that can growl (or at least it's close... hard to tell, since the mixing made her voice hard to hear over the instruments).  Either way, this is a great instrumental.

Upon closer inspection of the lyrics, I think this song is about Slash.

(I'm still on Slash's side though; I think it's way easier to believe? besides, I met a guy who was a roadie for GnR for a short time and he said Slash was great to talk to but Axl's a dick. :P)

Lacuna Coil - "1.19"

I think I figured out a meaning to this one (the band's been very secretive about it, only giving away that the number in the title is the distance between two places).  I think it's about a murderer who liked the thrill of the kill, but feels guilty and fears getting caught and so is traveling a 1.19 kilometers away from the scene of the crime.

...Yes, I have a feeling that sounds far-fetched.  Well, if that's not right, it's probably something personal since they won't tell (or at least that's what they WANT us to think). :P

Skid Row - "Get The Fuck Out"

This was censored on the rerelease of Slave To The Grind and replaced by "Beggar's Day," so I went ahead and got this from iTunes, put it in as track 6 and made "Beggar's Day" a bonus track.  Too bad it had to be censored, because this is the best track on the album. :P

Guns N' Roses - "14 Years"

Really good one.  It's sung mostly by Izzy rather than Axl, but Axl provides "backing" vocals during the chorus (his voice ends up overpowering Izzy's? that's my biggest problem with some of the songs where a different member of the band sings lead, especially since there's only a handful of songs where people other than Axl get a chance at lead vocals).

Iron Maiden - "2 Minutes To Midnight"

An extract from Megadeth's forums that pertains to this song:
Quote
Quote
Another thing I hate that Guitar Hero does is edit songs a lot. I undestand they're more child-orientated than Rock Band, but c'mon. They edited the lyrics to Iron Maiden's 2 Minutes to Midnight. There might be some slightly grusome words in there, but Iron Maiden is as clean lyrically as they come.
OH yeah that bugged me so much! Especially when you really pay attention to what they did with the editing. So they took out to kill 'the unborn in the womb' and then took out 'children torn in two' which to me means it's not ok to abort babies or kill kids. But later in the song they left the line 'oil the jaws of the war machine and feed it with our babies'.

So what they are saying essentially is that you can't kill a baby in the womb, you can't rip kids in half, but feeding them to a war machine is just fine.

Clearly the people behind Guitar Hero are pro-life. :P

Guns N' Roses - "So Fine"

Written and sung by Duff McKagan, as a tribute to his childhood idol Johnny Thunders.  The guy died the same year UYI2 was released, but I'm still trying to figure out if the song was recorded before or after (I'm guessing before, mostly because Duff ended up recording another tribute to him on "The Spaghetti Incident?" two years later).

Little-known fact: Dave Mustaine composed a good part of the song "Rust In Peace...

Huh.  Another song to put alongside "Whiskey In The Jar" (Thin Lizzy and/or Metallica) on my "songs I haven't gotten around to checking out yet" list. :P

Megadeth - "Recipe For Hate... Warhorse"

Ladies and gentlemen, the "Five Magics" of the 2000's.  This song is great, and honestly, I think it would've made a much better opener to The World Needs A Hero than does "Disconnect," which is a tad slow for a Megadeth opening track? the two songs should've been switched on the album.

Megadeth - "When"

The closer to The World Needs A Hero.  The first time I heard this song, I was completely blown away.  It's an instant classic, and once it's done you hardly feel like nine minutes (longest Megadeth song ever? the next longest doesn't even crack seven minutes) have gone by.  It's a downright shame it's never been performed live, however.

Diamond Head - "Am I Evil?"

As awesome as Megadeth's "When" is, they admitted it was partly an homage to this song, so I figured I had to listen to this next.  It's pretty good, in all honesty? I do like how Megadeth added in their own sound, lyrics and some new riffs, and not only kept "When" from being a carbon copy of "Am I Evil?" but made a gloomier song.  I don't think that in the end the two are that similar, but still. :P

Note that Dave always replaces "U.K." with "U.S.A." within the song and just took a guess at what Johnny Rotten was saying in some parts of the original Sex Pistols version.  As much as I like this cover, though, I think it was a big mistake releasing it as a single? and using it as the closer throughout most of the '90s.

The album nobody will admit to remotely enjoying.  I actually didn't mind half the tracks on it, but it's not exactly something I'd listen to on a regular basis.  I don't even care that the songs are solo-less or that the snare drums are snare-less, but the songs feel longer than usual and the drumming as a whole tends to be cacophonous? that's why I dislike a handful of the songs.

Megadeth - "Crush 'Em"

It looks like a greater portion of the Megadeth fanbase acknowledges Risk than the portion of Metallica fans that acknowledge St. Anger, and with good reason.  Like I've said before, Risk was one big experiment for Megadeth, but in no way is it a cacophony.  My theory is this: If straight-out rock from anyone else is okay, then why should Mustaine and Co. be forbidden from making that type of music if they want?

Nirvana - "Serve The Servants"

I still hate Kurt Cobain as a person, and that will probably never change.  But I decided I'd give In Utero another chance, in case I was putting too much of my opinion of him into my opinion of his band's music? and I probably was, since this is actually pretty good after a six-months-later relisten. :P

?And then I went on to hear it again.  Hell, if the rest of the album is like this, that's actually good news.  They may never be good in my eyes as Alice in Chains or Stone Temple Pilots, but what can you do?

"QWERTY" - Linkin Park

Apparently this is a track originally recorded for Minutes to Midnight, but when a softer sound was chosen for the album, it was rejected and released in one of their fanclub CDs. It's awesome and it sounds exactly like classic early 2000s LP, what a shame it wasn't released as a single or on a studio album.

Apocalyptica - "S.O.S. (Anything But Love)"

No relation whatsoever to the Rhianna song. :P Nope, for those who don't know, they're three cellists and a drummer, who together create a symphonic hard rock sort of sound.  They frequently feature different guest vocalists too, though.  This particular song features Cristina Scabbia from Lacuna Coil; others include Adam Gontier from Three Days Grace, Sandra Nasic from the Guano Apes and Till Lindemann from Rammstein.

You know, what gets me is when people claim that commercial success alone determines the quality of a band.  Look at this song? it failed to chart, but it's way more powerful, faster and musically superior to just about anything more successful bands like Metallica (only mentioned because everyone makes the comparison anyway) have ever done. (For example, how well do you think Kirk Hammett could replicate Chris Broderick's solo at the end?)

Tiamat - "Cold Seed"

I really need to look into more Tiamat than just Wildhoney and A Deeper Kind Of Slumber, but those are their two best-known albums for a reason.  The band started out as straightforward death metal, but in the mid-'90s they began to experiment and dabble in everything from doom metal to Goth metal to prog rock.  Barely any convential metal influences on A Deeper Kind Of Slumber (no death metal), but the interesting thing about the album is that it uses repetition within the same track in good taste and keeps tantalizing the listener with what could be rather than going all-out.

...It's really hard to describe so just give it a listen. D:

Meanwhile, Godsmack named themselves after an Alice in Chains song and Seether named themselves after a Veruca Salt song.  I don't have a problem with that sort of thing; it's just when you start declaring yourself as big of an act as your inspiration that there's an ego problem. :P

Lacuna Coil - "Heir Of A Dying Day"

Good example of their older, heavier material.  A lot of the big fans of the band tend to call Unleashed Memories their favorite album, but it's probably not the best choice for people who are more into alternative rock. :wink:

Well, Godsmack's d?but definitely sounded more nu metal than anything else they put out.

Godsmack - "What If?"

But they did a good job with returning mostly to the sound of Awake and Faceless, adding in bits and pieces of the unique sounds that Godsmack and IV have... and honing the combined result.  The Oracle might just have become my favorite album by them to date.

Chris Poland - "Theatre Of The Damned"

God I love this album.  35 minutes (plus two bonus tracks) of pure instrumental, metal-meets-jazz-fusion awesomeness.  A good showing of what he does best, even after leaving Megadeth (and before recording session guitar parts for them 14 years later, that is :lol:).

F5 - "Dissidence"

David Ellefson and Jimmy DeGrasso formed this little project after Megadeth (temporarily) disbanded in 2002.  It's on hold now that Ellefson is back with Dave Mustaine and the crew again, but the stuff that they DID record sounds good so far. :o

Godsmack - "The Oracle"

This one instrumental is basically everything the band has done in the past twelve years? along with some new stuff? chopped down into 6 ? minutes.  The cello used during the almost doom-like midsection was very nicely incorporated, and I also love the ending part? they need to try thrash sections like that more often! :o

Best. Godsmack song. Ever.

Diabolus In Musica, from the late '90s.  It surprises me that this actually turned out more aggressive than their late '80s works even though it's arguably more experimental? I guess even though the Big Four bands all experimented in the '90s, it was in different ways, huh?

Nightwish - "Passion And The Opera"

Tarja Turunen's voice is magical? I can't believe I used to say Anette Olzon was the better vocalist (although she's also very talented in her own way; I'm seeing now that it's more like comparing apples with oranges).  It's too bad there was tension in the band (the details are hard to pick out because each side makes different arguments without defending themselves fully) and Tarja was booted, though, but they seem to be getting along very nicely with Anette in her place.

Nightwish - "Romanticide"

I can't seem to get this song out of my head tonight. XD One of the crazy ideas I've had lately is starting a band off with a demo that's half Nightwish covers redone in a thrashier sound (probably "The Kinslayer" and "Dead Gardens/Romanticide" because they'd suit the style very well) and the demo itself would be called Night Thrash.  I get the feeling that'd be mildly cheesy, though... :lol:

Somehow I neglected to comment on this :shock: I think it would've been better if they rerecorded it for the alternate version, I'll admit, because it feels a bit tacked-on and obviously out-of-place the way they did it... but it could've been made to work.

I've been listening to My Own Army on and off, really.  Instrumentally this is an amazing cover, and I do like their attempts at injecting their own style into the song.  In that respect, it's well done... but Masha's voice doesn't really do it justice.  She does all right for the type of music the band plays on a regular basis, but this song is actually one of her weakest performances. ^^;

Still not as great as Megadeth's "Mechanix" IMO, but I'm really starting to like it as a midtempo-to-slow thrasher, and the tacked-on midsection? even though it still sounds like it almost doesn't belong? does do a good job of showing the band's musicianship in the early days with non-Mustaine material. (That, and Kirk Hammett's solo on this song is one of his best ever.)

Nightwish - "Bless The Child"

All that talk in the main spam topic about that young opera girl led to me giving their "Phantom Of The Opera" cover another listen... and then diverting my attention to the rest of the album that features that cover (Century Child), which I haven't listened to in full before.

Megadeth - "Take No Prisoners"

This and "Five Magics": the vocals on the original master are superior to those on the remaster.  It's a shame the original vocal tracks were lost/damaged for those and "Lucretia," although the last one didn't suffer as much.

Catamenia - "Angry Again"

A black metal album I actually like? A well-done cover of a Megadeth song? A good fusion of black metal with clean male vocals? :shock: Holy shit this was a shocker.

Venom - "Teacher's Pet"

Oh my god this was hilarious from the first note :lol:


Otherwise, this band's early material is actually pretty good.  Raw speed metal/NWOBHM that quickly shaped the black metal genre, and it's no secret that the early bands that pioneer each genre of metal sound much different (and quite often, better) than later bands that fit in the same genre~

Cradle of Filth - "Absinthe With Faust"

To be frank, I can't see myself becoming much more than a casual listener unless I acquire more of a taste for bandleader Dani Filth's vocals? instrumentally the music is great, but his vocals are usually only mediocre.  This might be one of his better performances outside of Thornography (where he apparently started using more mid-ranged vocals), though... I mean, just listen and try to tell me there's no emotion.

I'm not the biggest on melodeath, but somehow this band seems like it's a notch above most others in the genre.  But I think it says something that they originally had one member who did both death growls and melodic singing, but when he left after the third album, they had to get two different vocalists to take his place...

You know, this and "Dead Gardens" (and of course, "Creek Mary's Blood") are quickly becoming the only reasons I listen to Once.  The rest of the songs on the album really pale in comparison to their earlier work, especially because most of the songs are oversaturated in symphonic elements to the point at which the orchestra no longer shapes the songs, but attempts to SAVE the songs.

Slayer - "Psychopathy Red"

World Painted Blood is definitely as varied as Seasons In The Abyss, my favorite album by the band... but I like how it still sounds different rather than just being a blatant Seasons II.  Even though Slayer is definitely the least experimental of the Big Four, each of their albums I've listened to still has a unique sound to it.

Sure, their faster songs tend to sound a bit samey, but compare the old-school speed/thrash of Show No Mercy to the murky but technical Diabolus In Musica and then tell me the band has no concept of diversity.

A snippet of a live version from the ongoing Survive Tour.  The song was recorded on their original EP way back in 1998 and the band can't even remember when they've played it live... but twelve years later it was a pleasant surprise and was nicely modernized so it didn't sound out-of-place. :D I hope old classics like this spill over into the states the next time they tour over here~

Nightwish - "FantasMic"


Why has this song never been performed live (well, outside of a few tour dates in 2000 where the last part was played)? It's one of the best songs off of Wishmaster and I'm surprised the whole song was never used as a closer on Wishmastour.  Besides, I know Tuomas, the main songwriter, loved it? he'd really get into the song when the band actually performed Part 3. :?

Arch Enemy - "Burning Angel"

As much as I claim this band is awesome, I haven't really heard more than a few songs until now... and this one is freakin' awesome.  Melodic death metal (not to say that clean vocals are present, but just that the melody is more obvious) combined with very thrashy influences courtesy of the guitar-wielding Amott brothers... :)

The selling point of the band is that they're fronted by a WOMAN doing death metal vocals? it's impossible for anyone with a range higher than contralto to produce death growls? but Angela Gossow actually is very skilled and has a great sound.  I like how I can actually understand a good chunk of what she's saying without looking at lyrics, too? I couldn't listen to anything where the vocals are up-front but completely unintelligible.

I really like United Abominations, so I dunno why I haven't listened to it in a while.  I know it took a while to grow on me at first, but I like the modern sound of it and Endgame and the clearer melodies.  It's just too bad they both have a problem with oversaturation (UA with narration and Endgame with tacked-on solowork)... There aren't any bad songs, though, but are there ever? :lol: I still think "Washington Is Next!" is the best song off UA, but that's just me.

Man, the Paul Di'Anno years sound so much different from most of the material with Bruce Dickinson on vocals? hearing relatively quiet songs like this was a bit of a shock (the only Dickinson album that seems to have anything like this is No Prayer For The Dying, which I think was supposed to be like a reset for the band's sound).

Horde - "Silence The Blasphemous Chanting"

Part of a one-off project by Jayson Sherlock, better known as a death metal drummer.  Off the only studio album Hellig Usvart (Norwegian— translation below), the guy recorded everything and countered the "unholy" black metal released by "vtterly kvlt" musicians with what he termed "holy unblack" metal.  I'm not usually a fan of black metal... or of blatantly Christian or anti-Christian lyrics... but I'll make an exception for this. :lol:

Within Temptation - "Jillian (I'd Give My Heart)"

Yeah, I know I've been listening to a lot of symphonic crossover music lately, but I really think it's soothing.  I've heard the previews to WT's new album and while they're not bad, I don't think the direction they seem to be going in suits them... but older songs like this still have their impact.

It's been a while since I listened to The Silent Force, though— it's still great, but somehow feels a little empty compared to Mother Earth and The Heart Of Everything (I'd really recommend either of those two albums, but probably the latter more than the former, to newcomers).

I honestly liked the "countdown clock" effect of the way the bass and drums were mixed during the intro... But it's seriously a shame on Capitol Records' part that the original vocal tracks were lost and Dave had to re-record ALL the vocals for the remaster on his own.  Honestly, the two versions of RIP are the most divergent out of any of the original/remaster pairs in Megadeth's catalog, and this song proves it.

Don't ask me for the translation on the title this time— it's not easy to interpret.  Some people try to summarize it as "longing" or "yearning," but it's more complex than that and I don't completely understand it myself.  I'm under the impression that it's like missing something or someone you've never actually encountered, but I can't say for sure...

Mortification - "Scrolls Of The Megilloth"

Ignoring the redundancy of the title (since "megilloth" MEANS "scrolls" in Hebrew)... :lol:

I'll admit the main reason I can sit through anti-Christian music like Slayer and not be offended is because 1) I know I won't ever worship Satan or whatever and 2) the band themselves don't support it very seriously, but even so, I'm not so keen on some of the most overt songs as with a good chunk of Christ Illusion.  But how should an agnostic like me treat overt Christian songs, if the writing makes it look like the band thinks they're some kind of missionaries? The musicianship on both sides is great, but the lyrics seem to create some sort of... divergence.

Well, I actually think it worked for the album, but maybe that's just because most of the songs were fairly slow anyway.  Granted, I haven't listened to it quite as much lately, and I do think the remake of "À Tout Le Monde" was excellent, at least on par with the original.  I wonder how the rest of the songs would sound rerecorded in standard tuning and the band's current sound... :P


System of a Down - "Streamline"

I honestly thought I'd never listen to this band again, hahah.  I think I'd started to become more aversive because their batting average, so to speak, was much lower than most of the bands I like...

Because Jayson Sherlock is not just a great drummer, but also manages to work with great musicians in several different bands.  I'd say the best part of Paramæcium/inExordium compared to Jayson's former band, Mortification, is that even though both are Christian bands, Paramæcium manages to be much more subtle and natural with the message.

Off of the title album, this is really the only song that sticks.  Enter isn't necessarily a bad début, mind you, but it pales in comparison to their more mature-sounding later albums.  You can definitely tell it took them a while to figure out how they wanted to sound, too (just check out their second album, Mother Earth, in comparison), but the result with the sound evolution was great.

I really prefer European power metal to the North American variety.  There are a few bands (such as Dragonforce) which are exceptions, but it seems like European bands are usually more interested in balancing great melodies with occasional lightning-fast songs, instead of focusing predominantly on the latter.  A band shouldn't play at more than two hundred beats per second on every song just because they can; things can just get boring without some slower rhythms in between. :P

Well, keep in mind they're not as... superlative as they are in the United States.  Over in Germany, they're well-known, but not the most famous act as from their country by any means.  I'm guessing that's part of why the politician behind the temporary censorship, Ursula von der Leyen, went ahead and indexed the album, even though they'd done worse.  For about a year, only adults could buy the album in Germany, and even then, with "Ich Tu Dir Weh" removed entirely.

Megadeth - "Mary Jane"

It's interesting to note that while Mustaine claims this song has nothing to do with marijuana, the last beat is at four minutes and 20 seconds.

True, but his voice has deepened enough I'd just expect him to sing it an octave lower or something if it ever showed up live.  Having a different range isn't really an excuse as long as you can substitute a different octave— it's like saying a bass-baritone can't cover a song written for a tenor. :P

Epica - "Chasing The Dragon"


The thing that's really amazing about this song is the sheer range of heaviness.  The beginning features only an acoustic guitar, some symphonic instruments and Simone's vocals; it works its way up to the band's regular symphonic-power-metal-plus-death-growls sound about two-thirds of the way in and for a short while is almost noise (cacophonic drumming and shredding plus Mark's death growls) before mellowing back out.  It has to be heard to be believed, hahah.

I'm not really sure how much of What Lies Beneath was written by Tarja herself, but I'm getting the feeling that she's done more on her own than she did with her last album, and it seems better-written on the whole.  If you're into symphonic hard rock, songs like this aren't exactly easy to get out of your head.

Iced Earth - "Equilibrium"

From their new album which I just got today. I had no idea what to expect, considering that their Wikipedia article says the following:

Quote
Iced Earth is an American heavy metal band from Tampa, Florida, that combines influences from thrash metal, power metal, progressive metal, opera, speed metal and the New Wave of British Heavy Metal.

They're not bad so far, although they appear to be a revolving door of musicians. :lol:

Metallica - "The Day That Never Comes"

Well, after I gave Death Magnetic a few more chances, I think I've come to appreciate that most of the album is good especially because of the catchy choruses just a little bit of the blues-inspired hard rock sound from the Load-era retained here. As for this particular song... well, it'd be ridiculous if I didn't straight out say this was a lame attempt at trying to recapture "One," but the lyrics are pretty good so I'll forgive it. :P

Pink - "Dear Mr. President"

If I were to listen to pop music more often, it would only be if more songs like this existed.  Most of the time, the lyrics of songs matter a lot to me, and those that talk about having a good time at a party or whatever just don't appeal to me in the same way as those that tell much deeper stories.  Of course, I don't expect a lot more pop songs about poetic fantasies and literary epics, but a little more social commentary would be fine by me, especially considering how many of those I can relate to.

...And honestly, even this song means a lot more to me now than it did when I first heard it five years ago.  As I've been getting older and more aware of the outside world, my preferences have changed as well.  There's definitely a correlation between the two.
Title: Re: The

Oh, I don't think I could ever go back to pop... or at least modern pop, since it's taken a very electronic direction lately and frankly, the sonic quality of the entire instrumental aspect of the style piss seven kinds of hell out of me.

Stratovarius - "Learning To Fly"

Even though songs like these are pretty catchy, this is by far the cheesiest power metal band out there.

Lacuna Coil - "Kill The Light"


New song. :o They premiered it live already, but the studio version has just been leaked by the band themselves.

This one's got an excellent beat, and I love the atmosphere to it.  My only real complaint is it seems like there's vocal effects on both Cristina and Andrea, which should probably be downplayed a bit...

Eh, I don't really think it's uncharted territory for Nightwish— they dabbled in folk on Dark Passion Play with "Last Of The Wilds," and even a good few songs from their début had traces of it.  If anything, "Slow, Love, Slow" is the real experiment on Imaginaerum.  I mean, did anyone see a jazzy R&B track coming? :P

Nightwish - "Taikatalvi"

Translated into English:
Quote
This stage is the dearest of my children
Moonlight moves through alleys
A bent twig, a summer in its care
White vast open sea
On the wings of a phantom moon
Comes to take me home

In winter's land a moment is an eternity
Creeps to me like a kitten's paws
I get to live here where the story begins
Where a violin echoes the eternal melody of immense longing
Waking up the earth with its song
Pretty impressive poetry, if I may say so. Tuomas Holopainen is a genius for writing such a good song and then making it still sound beautiful even if a big chunk of its listeners probably won't understand a word of it. :lol:

I don't like "Don't Stop Believin' " at all, and "Enter Sandman" is kind of good at best... but the mash-up of the two with a prolific voice actor fronting the band just makes it surprisingly funny and epic.  It needs to be heard to be believed. :lol:

It's kind of amazing how different Enter is from their later work.  A lot more instrumental sections, death growls in addition to Sharon's light mezzo-soprano vocals and extensive use of a repeated riff on almost every track.  It's a good thing the riffs are so beautiful, though— this track and the title track are just hypnotizing.

Well, I might have figured out why Requiem For The Indifferent doesn't seem to stand up to its predecessors for me.  I think it sounds a little too... warm.  There aren't as many furious, interesting riffs and the overall tone seems a lot more positive than I would've expected, given the subjects.  I also feel like Simone's vocals, while impressive as ever, are more dominant here than usual, and often push the men out of focus (exceptions exist, like "Internal Warfare").
