Not games but still cool art & entertainment stuff we find interesting!

::sigh::

Just had a nice long winded explanation of my various musical interests, and then closed the window instead of switching back when I was going to grab a link. To reiterate, much more quickly, I love most genres, but am picky about individual bands and songs.

My favorite band is Disturbed, though I wasn't as warm on the latest album. For favorite classic rock artists I'd have to go with The Who, Jimmy Hendrix, and The Doors. Though I grew up on classic rock so that would be a huge list. Also enjoy Metal. Metallica was another sound I grew up with, and I guess I eventually spread out to other bands. My electronic music experience is limited. I live in the Detroit area and every year in May we have a three day long Electronic Music Festival; I really ought to check it out at some point. For rap I tend to go back to the 80s and 90s. I just prefer the lyrical styles of back then to now. Modern stuff has too much repetition for my taste.

A huge video game music fan, but I won't go in depth on that here. I will, however, note the Ar Tonelico series, specifically, it's Hymnos songs. They are special songs in the games. Their stylings are based off of Bulgarian Chorus, but have quickly moved on from there. One of my now absolute favorite singers, Noriko Mitose, does a few of these songs. I love her voice, and I just love this music in general.

Finally, if you're a fan of Metallica and Acapella (yes, I said that), then you'll want to see this. Interesting band. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9LaB9dq4Rw

Music you say? I love music!

I tend to lean more towards rock as a favorite genre, but I'll do listen to a pretty big variety. My parents listened to a lot of rock/80's stuff when I was growing up, AC/DC, Metallica, Ozzy, Bon Jovi, etc. For some inexplicable reason very angry music makes me feel bubbly and happy. Again I listen to a huge variety depending on what sounds good at that moment. While it would be impossible for me to make a list of all the bands I enjoy I'll just throw some out here that I've been listening to more recently:

-Bullet for my Valentine
-In Flames
-Hollywood Undead
-Five Finger Death Punch
-Sixx AM
-New Medicine
-Apocalyptica

That's all I can come up with off the top of my head. I have a ton of CD's in my car that I make my way through periodically.

This thread needs more Paramore. And Foo Fighters. And No Doubt.

My face slowely dropped reading through this, then i got to adol's post with his love for disturbed and all was right again, we had gathered the crystals and saved the world. xD

well according to spotify my top 5 artists are:
Incubus
Deftones
A Perfect circle
Queens of the stone age
Finch

but that fluctuates randomly from month to month. Incubus and deftones are pretty much always in my top five, the others switch from Disturbed, Korn, Slipknot, B4MV, Trivium, Nick Drake, Iron & Wine, Boy hits car, Placebo (no longer on spotify, luckily i have the entire back catalogue) chase & status, drumsound & bassline smith, DJ fresh, Subfocus, dj hype, TC, Dillinja, high contrast.

i could carry on but i think you get an idea of the variety i listen to. i've found its mostly their older stuff i listen to, maybe im jUst reminiscing... we fear change.. -Takes out a hammer-

each to their own though, eh?
This tomato tastes like your mom..

Glad I could be of service Tony. I tend to be picky about music. I like many genres, but a singer can really ruin a band for me. They don't have to be bad, per se, just... sometimes I'm just not feeling their style, or their voice, or something I can't describe but know I don't like. With Disturbed it is just the opposite. Their singer is great. I also love how they evolve as a band. Too many bands come out with a great album, and then repeat. Disturbed started out with sheer grit, experimented with something smoother with the second CD, combined the two for their third, and then concentrated on a more melodious sound for the fourth. The latest CD... I don't know. It feels a little too political for me, and though that's never a usually too much of a problem. I don't know. Maybe its because with the first four I liked damn near every song on the disc, and with this one there's only about three I really get into. Oh well, I'll just eagerly await the next offering.

I'm tempted to put this in the video game music thread, but since the subject also sings for anime and for her own indipendant music, it's more appropriate for me to post this here.

First, listen to this. That is Noriko Mitose, and if you've seen my Ar Tonelico posts in The Awesome Video Game Music Thread then you know I'm a big fan. But that's putting it mildly, because otherwise I wouldn't feel the need to keep posting about her music. First off, the song in the first link I don't know anything about other than that I cannot stop listening to it lately. It hits me with a nice emotional wave, and I usually have to lay my head on my desk when listinening to it. I just love her voice. I mentioned in an above post that singers can make or break a song for me, and she is the best singer I've ever heard. So, I wish to share with others. Here is a channel on You Tube of a bunch of her music. If you've played Chrono Cross then you'll recognize Radical Dreamers on her list of songs. There's even a live recording. Anyway, I greatly enjoy this woman's singing, so maybe some of you will as well.

Also try Akiko Shikata and Kokia. They are both just as exceptional.

I feel like the odd one out here, being as though I've never even heard of 90% of the above. I do get the chance to browse through now :)

The genres that I listen to are J-Pop, Alternate Rock, and Soundtracks.
My favorite artists/composers/bands would be Day after Tomorrow, Jeff Williams of RoosterTeeth, Shikata Akiko (As Adol mentioned above), Evanescence, and a little of the Beatles.

Songs that I consider favorites;
-Starry Heavens, by Day After Tomorrow http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlETckktlk4
-Red Like Roses, by Jeff Williams and Casey Lee Williams http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYW2GmHB5xs
-Akiko Shikata - Ta ga Tame no Sekai, by Akiko Shikata, She has amazing music, and this isn't my favorite, but is my first choice.
