    Then again, usually my discoveries originate from a festival gig. Whenever I have a few hours of time with none of my favorite bands scheduled, I either chill out at the camping or go see something random.

    Discovered Opeth last summer that way, man I can't believe I forgot them on my list. They're so incredibly tight live and their music is really well-composed imo. :O
    I first discovered Opeth at a festival (Bloodstock 2008), though I hated them. I'd been stood so long I was really uncomfortable and just didn't enjoy it. But my mate got me listening to them, and I saw them soon after and it was great. I've seen them a few times since and they were really good. But then I saw them at the Royal Albert Hall show they put on the DVD and I just felt indifferent. I didn't like Heritage which came next, and as a result I've effectively stopped listening to them.

    After being burnt by Twilight of the Gods-Jesus H ****ing Christ who chose it as the album's single-I'm glad as hell that I still love Blind Guardian. Beyond the Red Mirror is excellent, Kai is a lot more gruff and growls a lot more, and there is just so much oomph to their songs. That opening for The Ninth Wave, it was worth the wait. ANATO's successor is finally here.

    i'm actually not a fan of alestorm but saw them with a friend live a few years ago since he wanted a buddy. i talked to their... vocalist i think? after the show. he was cool. i told him his band sucked and then we talked about dragon warrior and final fantasy for half an hour.

    I met the singer at the bar before the show, he was pretty chill. I also met the singer for Swashbuckle, who opened for them. That guy is ****ing awesome!

    The last record I loved was Ghost Reveries, then they got too proggy for me and I love prog bands like Between the Buried and me.


    Anybody like Gojira?

    Hey guys, amazed to see this thread is still alive and active! Don't know if you remember me, Hammerheart, but good to see you around

    Yes, I like Gojira. Saw them last year (two years ago?) with Devin Townsend.

    What were everyone's favorite albums from last year? I'm a huge power metal fan. My top picks are Triosphere - The Heart of the Matter, Falconer - Black Moon Rising, and the almighty Gamma Ray - Empire of the Undead. I haven't checked out much outside the power metal genre yet, looking for suggestions!

    L'enfant Sauvage is my favorite album by Gojira, but From Mars to Sirius is a close second.

    Hair metal is still metal, and there is this obscure hair band called Kik Tracee. They recorded one album in 1991, and it features a pretty good cover of the Simon and Garfunkel song Mrs. Robinson.

    Hello there, fellow Serebii metalheads. I love symphonic metal, especially Kamelot and Nightwish, plus more thrashy yet still celticy stuff like Gods of the Earth era The Sword. And of course the classics like Metallica. Other things that I have a few tracks of that I like are DragonForce, Apocalyptica, Dream Theater and MegaDeath. Can anyone suggest a celticy symphonicy band that I might like? I especially love songs that tell a cool story, if that helps.

    I like Kamelot and Nightwish too. You might like Within Temptation's album, Mother Earth.

    Ensiferum, Primordial, and Moonsorrow are essential bands if you want celtic sounding metal. Its not symphonic as much, but there is great material. Personally I can't suggest a single album, though some of the later Primordial is a bit weak, and I wouldn't touch Ensiferum after Victory Song. There's also this English band I was suggested to by another member years ago that's heavy metal, but is very celtic in there sound. New band too, first album was in 2009. Dark.....something, god why can't I remember them...

    Speaking of heavy metal, just listened to Enforcer's new album. Holy ****. Bands like them are why I continue to listen to metal. I'm also renewing my self when it comes to metal, started buying metal hammer again and going through the reviews to learn new bands, listen to new stuff and generally get a hold of things again. I was so out of the loop these last years.

    Not conventionally symphonic in the way a band like Nightwish are, but compositionally I feel that it really has that bombast to it once the main melody kicks in around 2:07

    I absolutely LOVE this album. Roots by them is also very good.

    In my case, they didn't become necessarily "too proggy" (I think we all know by now that I love me some proggy ****), they just weren't that interesting. I haven't bothered to listen to Pale Communion yet.

    Sadly, I think Within Temptation has gotten a bit less metal as time went -- but I never really listened to them very much. If I had to choose, I think that After Forever is probably the best band in the subgenre of, er... female-fronted pseudo-operatic... would that even be called Gothic metal? I'm pretty well out of it lately when it comes to musical genres.

    Man, I just discovered The Ocean's masterpiece album Pelagial. It is so good, blew me away! I'm not even sure whether I prefer the instrumental version or not, it's like a wholly different experience. I'm not a big fan of their other work, although I have to admit I didn't spend as much time listening to that. Precambrian is a bit too aggressive for my taste, and Heliocentric/Anthropocentric seem to lack a little punch, oddly.



    Just wanted to share that with you guys.

    On the subject of Symphonic Metal, there's not much I can add really. Nightwish is experiencing some kind of revival since Floor Janssens joined them, but it's still not Tarja. I've never liked Within Temptation, although Ice Queen is a decent song. If they're not already mentioned, Epica is a pretty good symphonic metal band.

    Symphonic metal: You guys need to check out Serenity. An example song from them is My legacy.

    Had to bump this thread, Lemmy Kilmister passed away this morning. Metal, nay, Rock has lost itself a legend today, one of the biggest on stage presences and a god amongst mortals. The world of music is mourning, and rightly so. R.I.P Lemmy

    Forgot this thread existed.. Posted my response in the "favorite music" thread.. In the Netherlands, in the week between Christmas and NewYear'sEve, there's a radio station that airs a Top2000 of songs chosen by the public. It's a big thing here in the Netherlands and occupies an entire network with 24/7 coverage of the dj's (which are hosted in an encased room in a café, and there are a few shows that tie into the event, with a quiz, trivia and frequent interviews with almost forgotten artists..

    Last night, before that show ended, the host asked the "trivia"-man, what song people could expect if the tuned in the coming hour.. The Ace of Spades was the answer and he turned on the volume during the credits. Five hours later, I saw Entertainment Weekly reporting the passing in a sidebar while I was checking Firstlook pictures for GoT s6 and Dr.Strange..

    My night was wrecked.. I can tell you that..

    The second line is meant to be sarcastic.. Though there was a random trainer with a Heatran at the Sinnoh League..

    First learned about this myself about an hour ago.

    If, by even some minuscule chance, some of his friends and family are reading this, my condolences go out to all of you. You guys and girls lost a truly amazing man. Lemmy will be missed.
