    I aim to listen to any avant-garde metal I am able to find. LastFm is a great help about that, though I've still got the feeling there is still much more to try^^

    SB, Ihsahn and Leprous are also starting to write some interesting bass parts. I love the singer for SB so much, she is the female Devin Townsend. I wish Devin utilized her more on Dark Matters. I remember seeing SB tour with Devin Townsend, ugh their setlist was too damn short. Fuckin Paradise Lost got more time and they mostly played their boring Depeche Metal songs. But their older stuff was fucking awesome live. You definitely have talent, keep that shit up and share more!

    Well I guess I need to check them out. I just listened to an old Swedish Death Metal band called Carbonized and holy shit are they amazing! This band was actually made up from the band members of Therion, before Therion. They have some awesome bass lines. Check out the album Disharmonization. I think most musicians in metal care mostly about melody and harmony, which is one of the big reasons why I love metal. Metal has some of the most memorable melodies alongside classical. Though more metal bands with a well thought bass line would make things more interesting. I sure hope you're right about Jari, he's so damn talented, but if he isn't lying, then that asshole needs to release his shit. It won't do anyone any good if it just sits on some sheet music somewhere. Honestly, I don't care about production that much. Maybe I just listen to too much black metal. It's nice, but it's all aboot the actual music for me. Theres very few albums where the production bothers me. Alongside DSO and..

    I think they've been talking about it for years already. I'm very torn about it. I'm all for it if they can reach that level of quality of the first 6 seasons again, but otherwise I'm really not interested. The last 2-3 seasons have been very underwhelming, especially the 9th. Originally it was planned to only do 5 seasons, but Fox wanted more because the show was so successful. So it was because of the money, just like it would be now for a reboot. I'm generally against reboots/remakes/revivals because they hardly ever reach the quality of the original and are usually quite forgettable.

    String Bass. Diablo Swing Orchestra and Stolen Babies use a String Bass and it's super fucking sexy. Krystofferr gildenlow and Jonas Hellborg are also incredible bassists. I just want to hear more saxophones, violins and cellos in metal.

    I've also wondered why flamenco isn't more prominent in metal. Metal with folk, metal with classical and metal with jazz go hand in hand perfectly. I think NeO proved that Metal goes hand in hand with flamenco as well. I'm hoping to here more "flametal" when bands start to become influenced by NeO. I love Wintersun, but I'm not expecting much from Jari. It seems his work ethic isn't that great and he uses his record label as an excuse to not release his music. What he has released has been fucking perfect though... I think the reason why bands like Slayer and Metallica are super popular is because Metal isn't really loved by people outside of the underground. Whenever anyone outside of metal thinks about the genre, they always think about Slayer, Metallica, Slipknot, Disturbed, Black Sabbath, Megadeth, etc. I also think it has to do with timing. When those bands stop touring, I think different styles will become popular as well. The bass is super underappreciated, personally I love...

    FIVE. LONG. YEARS!!! The Aurora Veil Demo is probably one of my listened albums of all time. If it was on a cd or vinyl, I would have worn it out. Wait you got torn away from Nu Metal because of scifi? What? 1984 is a brilliant book and movie. Unfortunately American society seems to be living up to 1984's society. Dune is to scifi as The Lord of the Rings is to fantasy. It's essential! I'm more into scifi more than fantasy, myself actually. But I do like The Legend of the Seeker TV show, I still need to read the books. It started out a bit cheesy, but it ended up being an incredible fantasy universe. Fantasy is more about interesting worlds, where scifi is a bit deeper. hence why I love Star Trek so fucking much. Funny I used to love Star Wars more as a kid, but the older I got, the more I loved ST, still love SW though. I still need to read more of Isaac Asimov's book's. I've read part of one book, but I lost it. :( So I need to rebuy the book and get into his other stuff.

    The best bands/shows I’ve seen were artists who are actually somewhere in the middle (of their genres) in terms of complexity. My overall interest in ‘metal’ music has dwindled from year-to-year but the bands I’ve grown up on will always hold a special place for me. As far as the feeling of being more ‘moved’ by the music… I used to be the same way, as well. Much more interested/concerned in the actual music than vocals or lyrics but I’ve come to the conclusion that ‘bands are only as good as their lead singer’ There’s plenty of talented bands and groups of musicians out there but actual unique and honest singers...I think are a far more rare and special thing to discover. Just my opinion...

    I didn’t say ‘simpler’ music was (necessarily) better live. Just that it’s easier to execute and lends itself to more energetic and (ideally) impassioned live performances. Almost every musician I’ve ever met would agree. For me, what I realized was that part of (what I consider) ’evolving’ was learning to consolidate my taste. I’ve found the best artists have the ability to say A LOT in a rather short amount of time. When you’re young and have the benefit of (what feels like) an infinite amount of time; it’s normal to get very “out there” with your preferences. Of course everyone is different but the progressive stuff just didn’t really take me anywhere. I’ve actually spent the last TEN years traveling to see shows and got myself 3 jobs working on tours… (accepted 2 of those offers) From those experiences I became more and more aware and interested in the audiences of the performances. The average age, the size, the amount of crowd response, etc...

    I see. Yeah I guess jazz in metal will always just be an influence, don't see how it could be any more than that, else it would be just jazz played with distortion haha. Essence Of Datum is definitely much better than that other neoclassical album you once shared, but still not really something I dig.

    It's OK, no offense here. I agree lots of black metal fans are pricks who cannot take an opinion and seem afraid of being gentle, even though, I admit I am pretty rough sometimes, anyway, thanks for your kind words.

    Thanks man. Anyway I thought of something you might just like or absolutely hate. At least that's what I think. It's a new wave band called Japan. I really only like their last 2 albums and a live album they did that has stuff from the last 2. It has excellent Fretless bass playing even though the whole picture is kind of synth pop/new wave. Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YaprnbUpXMw Also the lead singer (David Sylvian) Has some solo stuff I like and he collabs with guys like Robert Fripp and was asked by Fripp to join King Crimson in the '90s though he declined. It's kind of croony art pop stuff with interesting ambient and Prog Leanings which vary from album to album. I'd recommend Secrets of the Beehive or Brilliant trees before the Gone to earth double album. But I have a feeling you'd prefer Gone to Earth since it's his most prog. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehyYa2bMfwg

    I haven't shouted in a while since I couldn't think of anything to say. is Anathema any good? I know you haven't listened to them much but they sound really cool to me and I might download them when I get home next month. Also keep in mind I am into alt metal stuff like Deftones and Katatonia as well as funeral/gothic stuff. So really this sounds like a match made in heaven for me.

    Also Babylon 5 isn't that deep. It's just an epic space opera. Props on Isaac Asimov and the dune saga too! Dune is one of my favorite book series ever! Too bad it was never done justice in the movie or mini series.

    There's quite a few with Q and there's a lot of.voyager comics, so I'll say yes to 7 of 9 as well. I hate typing on y phone. Be Obliviscaris is amazing. But the wait for portal of I was brutal. When the demo first came out , it was seriously one of the best things I had ever heard. What did you think of citadel ? Ithought it was good, but not on the level of POI. I did enjoy how they made he violin more metal sounding though. That was quite epic! Metal needs more flamenco and more black metal/jazz. Have you ever checked out aquilis? If you haven't, listen to h albu griseus. It's one of the bet black metal albums of 2011 and on of the best neoclassical albums of 2011. It's like an epic black metal soundtrack. Fuck correcting any of this shit!

    They didn't turn Kirk into a giant penis? I'm so disappointed. But I'll be looking forward to it. Have you ever watched Babylon 5? Deep Space Nine is a bit more of a space opera, but it's done quite well, I think. It does start a bit slowly though. That sounds like an awesome book, I may have to check it out. I have the whole Star Trek comic library, some of it is quite good actually. Though I'm disappointed by a lack of Borg ones.

    Yeah it's pretty sad really. Sabbath and Maiden have great bass playing, so why didn't more bands follow in their footsteps in that respect? I think the only subgenre that has usually interesting bass and where the instrument is also usually upfront in the mix is technical/progressive death metal, bands like (later) Death, Atheist, Cynic etc.

    I don't have a clue and have not heard his solo work. Yeah he probably is a good producer, but I have only heard so few of his productions, so I can't really judge him. I think Metallica's bass playing is pretty boring in general, even with Cliff in the 80s. But then again most metal bass playing is boring to me. It just seems to exist for the sake of having bass in the music, unlike with other genres where it's an important part of the music just like the rest of instruments.

    I'm not sure if it's Rubin's fault that Death Magnetic and other albums are so brickwalled, maybe the mastering engineer is to blame for that. I like his early productions with Slayer and Beastie Boys, from recent productions I think he did a good job bringing Metallica back to their 80s style after that St. Anger abomination, but of course the sound sucks. Sabbath's 13 is another such example where he helped bringing back the classic sound, but not sure if the band couldn't have achieved that on their own and with another producer. Don't think it's a great album though, pretty mediocre mostly.

    I completely forgot if I responded to your comment, but then I came down and saw a conversation about Star Trek and I am curious. So whats your favorite series? Mine is between The Original Series and Deep Space Nine. I'm almost done with with Enterprise, which I'm loving, then I just have the Animated series left... I can't believe I'm almost done with finishing all of Star Trek...

    Yeah, that is true, but either way Mushroomhead is a pretty good band. It's hard to say, i grew up watching The Original Series and The Next Generation. I got into Deep Space 9 after Voyager and Enterprise. I guess Voyager would be my favorite mostly because they are trying to head home but it was a fairly good written show that had some pretty cool new adventures and it adds to the mystery of space not knowing what they would encounter in the next episode. Stargate is a good series, after watching SG-1 you should check out SG Atlantis. That is my favorite show in the Stargate series, though SG-1 is on top as well. I only wished Atlantis had a longer series running and actually had a movie, they kinda left some questions unanswered. ST Universe i am still watching but i read they left it in a bad spot it was a short running series. Battlestar Galactica is another show i have been watching, it's interesting but drags on quite a bit.

    I'm afraid no. I don't like european style power metal, so even if it has some good elements, that won't really make me like it. Blind Guardian is an exception, but they are more thrash influenced than most bands in that style.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure that's the common definition. Yours seems quite odd, never heard anyone describing wankery that way. It's probably better to stick with the common definitions of things, else people just get confused.

    Il y a 28 jours
  • KeIemvor

    But then I don't understand why you say you consider it wankery. Isn't wankery the absence or at least severe lack of emotion in favor of technical showing off? At least that's what I thought the definition is.

    Il y a 29 jours
  • KeIemvor

    Yeah that's certainly odd, how can you not hear all the emotion he puts into his playing? I never heard any guitar player who could play with more feeling in this kind of style than Roth. Not even Loomis. But then I haven't heard too many. About rhythms, well it's not metal or rock, it's purely neoclassical music, so that's why they are not pronounced or missing. But I guess you're naturally evaluating it from a metal perspective, so you need aggression as a form of emotion.

    Check this for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5e5072S-hBg And the album Sky of Avalon is probably a good place to start, but then he didn't release that much.

    Just tried some of that album. First of all, how did you come to the conclusion it supposedly has Beethoven style composition? :D There isn't even any other classical composer with a similar style. He was way too unique to be imitated by anyone. Maybe Ferdinand Ries to a small degree, but only because he was a pupil of his. Anyway, I'm afraid it's not my cup of tea... My main issue is that I can't stand this speed/blast beat-type of metal, it reminds me of Dragonforce and stuff like that. Neoclassical is generally a good thing (for example Uli Jon Roth's solo stuff) but only if it has heart and soul. In metal/hard rock it usually tends to be soulless wankery just like in this case. So I might as well listen to Malmsteen if I want that. Loomis solo is okay, but also pretty much wankery if we're honest, just on a different level.

    You can also hear Eugen's solo project here http://farbeyond.bandcamp.com/ This is how I came to work with him, randomly found his project, liked it, then he offered to join Euphoreon when I showed him my demo. Tempus Fugit is amazing.

    décembre 2014
  • umosay

    Cool, thanks :) I wrote 95% of the album, Eugen mainly added some slower part and did most of the recording/production. Didn't really intend for it to be any particular style, but I guess I listen to a lot of melodic death so that would be the main one, the 'black' style vocals are really more influenced by Norther/Wintersun type vocals. Next album has more of a theme throughout rather than exploring many genres, some longer songs and more diverse structures.

    Skindred are definitely one of the 5 or 10 best acts I've ever seen! I haven't seen someone like a Gojira yet but that can sometimes be the case when talking about music that’s on the more technical/progressive side… it’s so hard to play that sometimes the band has trouble really capturing the audience.

    décembre 2014
  • Zach216

    That’s cool! I’m really big on music studies and research. Your taste/knowledge seems very expansive and while age is just a number, I’ve kind of “kept track” of what I liked/got into year-to-year. I give any younger person whose trying to expand their knowledge and whose open-minded a lot of credit. I would agree with that assessment on Disarmonia, my favorite albums are Fragments of Degeneration & Mind Tricks… which yeah probably was exceeding what Soilwork was doing in the mid 2000s (obviously I’m a huge fan of both bands…) I would say I’ve been fortunate that out of the 185+ shows I’ve been to everyone has always met or exceeded my expectations. It’s rare that I see anyone live prior to hearing them on record but Skindred was one of those bands that blew me away live when I first saw them in ‘05 & I don’t think it was until “Union Black” that they really made an album that came close to matching/capturing what their live show packs in terms of energy!
