Most bands haven't. Doesn't mean they aren't good!

It would certainly make most bands better.

Woah, what?

Well actually, I can kinda see how this works to be honest. But it's more like "Classic Pink Floyd" is similar to Ayreon. Not Pink's later albums. It has to be real old. Like, back when they first started old.

It's an old debate that a lot of people had in the mid 80's in magazines and social groups. Was Pink Floyd classified as Rock? Or an early adaptation of Metal?

Better yet, is Pink Floyd even classified as a genre of music? Pink brought something new to the table. And it was revolutionary in it's time. Something that no other band has really touched on it yet. Not even Ayreon, or hell, even evantasia. Which is another good band that is somewhat similar to the vision of music Roger Water's envisioned.

Hell, Ayreon somewhat did the same thing. Relying more on it's own story rather than the music itself. Ayreon is more like reading a very good book while you can sit with your eyes closed and picture the story being unfolded. Even when no one is singing. You can just watch your imagination unfold and envision your own characters act, sing, and perform while the music is going on.

One of pink's classic songs were basically the early stages of metal. Not kidding, you look up a website that has classic pink floyd stations and you might be surprised if you are even listening to them or not. It even blew me away that it was totally different than The Wall, Dark Side of the Moon, and even some of the later albulms.

Going to touch on Ayreon a bit. The most amazing thing I liked about that band is that they had to illustrate multiple instruments to display the thoughts and feelings of aliens "Studying" the thoughts and minds of humans. The album 01011001 did this, while another album was just about a man living in a coma. That album was called The Human Equation. Ayreon had multiple views on making music an actual interesting story. And in some cases, succeeded!

But I guess what I am trying to say is that I can see the resemblances in both bands. But honestly they are two different things that you can't really touch. Both are very good bands.

So I just discovered that there is a little easter egg on World of Warcraft that comes once a year. It's during brewfest and if you were there to witness it. It was amazing!

I recorded something. But for now. Have this!



Yes, you literally hear this music when this happens. This is no mockup!

The one me and my guild did was a little better. We did all sorts of AOE stuff and this chick I am seeing did Death and Decay near the end where EVERYTHING PULLED!

ROCKING SONG THOUGH!

POWER OF THE HOOOORRRRDDDDEEEEEEE!!!!

Finally got my hands on Symphony X's Iconoclasm album. It makes me happy.

Currently working on completing my collection of Rhapsody of Fire albums and one of the EPs that I don't have. I have From Chaos to Eternity but I haven't listened to it yet (still listening through Iconoclasm). Hoping to have The Cold Embrace of Fear and The Frozen Tears of Angels within a day or so.

I've been so busy that I have neglected my metal collection. I also need to get the new Iced Earth album since I think it just came out. Might have to wait on that one awhile though.

I'm reviving this thread just to say:


Tesseract is the best band in existence of all living things.



Honestly, both their full length albums are amazing.

So my friend's husband lent me the first Ashes of Ares album to check out since it's the singer from Iced Earth... not bad. Very similar sound, though the tracks seem a bit shorter.

I won't say too much about the game (it is an eroge, after all), but it has a pretty good OST.

The bonus boss theme is pretty darn awesome, too:

My musical tastes actually had a really strange development. My parents are old, so until I was around ten all I listened to was the oldies station (I like oldies and classic rock). I was semi-aware of modern music... I had heard of Nirvana, Michael Jackson, etc but it was this separate thing. Then my brother got a girlfriend who had a son my age, we hung out a lot. He listed to the local rap station (this was '95/'96 rap), so I did too... I even owned a cassette tape of Coolio's Gangsta's Paradise (did I mention I am whiter than white and lived ten minutes from Compton?)

So yeah, I got my own radio around that time, found the pop station and went into the teeny bopper stage. I am ashamed to admit this, but I liked Celine Dion and Brittany Spears... I owned the first Backstreet Boys, N'Sync, and Hanson albums... I have long since destroyed them.

I was also familiar with metal at this time. My brother is a huge Metallica and Guns & Roses fan so he made sure I was exposed. I liked it, my mother didn't, and I still wasn't able to watch MTV because "I was too young"

MTV saved me from myself. I started watching it in 8th grade, for the pop videos. I watched pretty much any video that came on, rap, rock, pop, whatever. I was a top 40 fan. Then I watched Twelve Angry Viewers (a show I liked but am kinda glad it's gone because they really did destroy videos, and that is bad). The video they were judging was Tourniquet by Marilyn Manson. I had sorta heard of Manson before, a cousin of mine liked him but that was all I knew. So I watched with rapt attention.

I fucking loved it.

Out went the pop albums, in came Manson, Korn, Rage Against the Machine, and numerous other metal and rock bands and I never looked back. Friends recommend other bands outside of the mainstream, and now those are my favorites. I stopped watching MTV when they stopped playing music by the good bands... or music at all (I missed early 90s MTV and I kick myself for it)

I do like Eminem sometimes, because he sings about stuff other than "ganstas, bitches, and ho's", some of his stuff is funny, and Manson is in one of his videos. I have never understood the ICP obsession, ever. I think I've been able to listen to only one of their songs the whole way though, but otherwise I have never liked them.

But yeah, that is my transition into a metalhead.


Sorry for bumping this but have some contributions to this thread. You don't have to be ashamed to admit you like Celine Dion and Brittany Spears. I don't know of many people that listen to Celine Dion and Brittany Spears along with Heavy metal but I'm sure you along with some other users who liked pop before switching would be a perfect fit in the "I listen to every genre" category. I like Heavy metal but also listen to other genres of music which includes Celine Dion and Brittany Spears which makes me a perfect candidate for the "I listen to every genre" category. I'll give you a brief rundown of what I listen to.

Marilyn Manson (Beautiful people and (Sweet dreams) are made of this)
Madonna
Judas Priest (You've got another thing coming and living after midnight)
Metallica (Pretty much anything by them is good)
Coolio
Eminem
Vanilla Ice
Ozzy Osbourne
Earth, Wind and Fire,
Genesis
Pink Floyd (But never listened to Ayreon but from the looks of it are pretty similar but just add power metal to Pink Floyd)
Phil Collins
Peter Gabriel
Tool

plus many more, so while you can call me a metalhead since I listen to it you can also call me a pophead, raphead, progressivehead etc so this makes Jack FM (which plays everything) perfect since I have all this on one convenient station. So as long as the music is good, I'll listen to it no matter the genre whether it's Christian, metal, folk, pop etc. Also, why has no one mentioned Tool at all? They are also like Pink Floyd but add in Progressive metal and Art metal to Pink Floyd's Progressive rock and Art rock sound and you've got Tool's sound.
