What's your fav album from them?
User avatar #13 to #12 - twistedrider (01/24/2013) [-]
Helvetios, no doubt. That album was a masterpiece, with Home being the best track. The melody in Epilogue was also amazing!
#14 to #13 - lollytool (01/24/2013) [-]
Helvetios is awesome, but please tell me you listen to the older songs as well?
User avatar #15 to #14 - twistedrider (01/24/2013) [-]
Of course I do. Can't ignore those masterpieces!
#16 to #15 - lollytool (01/24/2013) [-]
You're officially a drop dead awesome person in my book, anyone who can appreciate the masterpiece that is Eluveitie is awesome.
User avatar #17 to #16 - twistedrider (01/24/2013) [-]
Let us hope they get a good place in the history books of music. Bloody hell, they're eight people making a history book on celts themselves! Just, more musical!
#18 to #17 - lollytool (01/24/2013) [-]
Indeed, they're pure win, their mastery of the instrument and the ability to actually make so many different instruments fit together, it's just win.
User avatar #19 to #18 - twistedrider (01/24/2013) [-]
And not that many bands can make Growling sound that good. Even before I came across growling, I understood the Vocalist perfectly fine. They took Folk Metal, and perfected in even more then Skyclad did!
#20 to #19 - lollytool (01/24/2013) [-]
They perfected folk music more then anyone else, ever. The growling is perfect for it, they've managed to make folk music become my fav genre, eventhough I only listen to a few folk bands.

I really do like the instrumental of folk metal, but I've found that I usually don't like the singing for some reason. Some of it is neat, but mostly it kind of ruins it for me..

A great example for my dissatisfaction is from that band. This one:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=iijKLHCQw5o

I really like the start, but I'm not much for the "Aaah" stuff. Excuse the way I say this, but the "screaming". "Growling". Whatever you call it.

But I do like the song in here (Not from the same band as above.):

#65 to #21 - anon (01/25/2013) [-]
I think the vocals are an acquired taste. I used to hate unclean vocals, but then I began to get into some black metal and then folk metal, and I learned to love it.
I think folk metal would lose a lot of depth and character if it only had clean vocals.
#66 to #65 - anon (01/25/2013) [-]
By the way, any Moonsorrow fans here?
User avatar #56 to #21 - drulludanni (01/24/2013) [-]
i have the same opinion as you, I i only like clean vocals or no vocals at all and i really like the instrumental of most folk/viking metal bands but the growling ruins it for me and i really wish there were more viking and folk metal bands that used clean vocals.

perhaps you might like this song by turisas

listen to newer nokturnal mortum stuff then. great pagan black metal including folk instruments. id suggest listening to www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjILZJY5bYM
User avatar #22 to #21 - twistedrider (01/24/2013) [-]
Well, Eluveitie and Korplikaani does have completely different style.

For example, Eluveitie is more folk metal with elements from black metal, like Ensiferum.

Whereas Korplikaani leans more towards the classic heavy metal style, much like Skyclad.
User avatar #23 to #22 - tylosaurus ONLINE (01/24/2013) [-]
Yes, but it's still folk metal. I can't say I like all of their songs, mostly just that one that I really like. To be honest. Maybe it's because I haven't explored too much of their music.

Anyways, I just felt like saying what I disliked about that song which happened to be from that band.

I agree. White Metal is frightening. More so than black.

So is Galadriel scarier that Sauron when she talks about what she would do with the ring.

Who would be progressive, then?
User avatar #3 to #2 - shinkaia (01/23/2013) [-]
Saruman probably
User avatar #10 to #3 - itsabloodyusername (01/24/2013) [-]
I'd say Saruman fits better as Symphonic tho. Considering the fact that Christopher Lee has released two such albums.
User avatar #7 to #3 - tacoiiimaniac (01/24/2013) [-]
Now that I think about it, Treebeard would make a better representation of progressive. Just an opinion.

What would Mushroomhead be? And would the new Korn album be Nu Metal or Metalstep? (Heard some people call it that)
User avatar #72 to #71 - anonymoose (01/30/2013) [-]
Mushroomhead are [to my knowledge] industrial metal. KoRn would are nu metal. Metalstep wouldn't be big enough to be a separate genre.
User avatar #61 to #59 - sidathon (01/24/2013) [-]
What would this be classed as?

Metalcore.

Ah, ok. Well, from what I've heard, Thrash is my favourite out of the ones listed.

Pf, Metal and Tolkien, without clarifying that Turín is Doom Metal. Amateur! Also, saying that Arwen is Gothic Metal is not okay, she´s hot and cool and Gothic Metal is well...gothic metal

I disagree with Gandalf being symphonic, obviously Saruman should be his replacement for this.

Just looked that up. So Nazi faggots were rejected by punks so now they're trying to squirm into black metal.
