Got exposed to Medieval Metal and Viking Metal which sounds neat so I’ll be going after that next. \:\)


The mind boggles. Can you recommend any groups?

Shane


Hi shane, my computer downloaded about 400 Medieval and Viking Metal tracks while I was at work today. Mostly sampled the Medieval Metal so far and can say I decently like:

Schandmaul - imagine the pipes of 3 SCOTS (Black Watch) and Jethro Tull on steroids. Cools stuff especially if you like bagpipes, and I love the pipes. Seem to be leaning toward the Folk side of things.

Saltatio Mortis - faster pace and yes more pipes. Did I mention I like bagpipes? If there was only one musical instrument allowed in the world it should be the pipes.

Morgenstern - more and heavier guitar but still mixed with “Medieval” sound.

Subway to Sally - also sound heavier but with a more Folk sound.

In Extremo - seem a little more eclectic than the rest (may be just because I found more of their tracks) also more pipes including Uilleann Pipes and even pigs and crows.

As Metal goes this stuff is all on the more mellow side. Much more Folk/Medieval Rock sounding than Thrash/Death or Black Metal sounding. I’d say if you like Metal and Medieval sounds these bands are all no-brainers.

The Viking Metal will have to wait for more time since there are about 300 tracks from about 30 bands.

Cheers,
Dean

Emmy the Great - First Love

I finally got my copy! I'm just listening to a couple of tracks and then heading to bed. I had guests over tonight, so I couldn't sit down and listen.

Goth Metal Heads: Within Temptation's "Black Symphony DVD" has called me again. Lead singer Sharon Den Adel is captivating in this production from the Netherlands. One of Europe's top bands... head banging theater maybe. The orchestra and riffs mesh brillantly. Just wish I had a pair of M80's for the full throttle effect. Best concert LFE I've heard to date.

I'm intrigued from the write up. Do you know of any links to samples I can listen to? I know, I know.... Google ! Thought you might know of the better ones though.

I'm into bagpipes (although I remember a line from a Goon Show saying that no one has ever learned to play them), and Jethro Tull, so these have promise.

You might also like Bellowhead , an English folk band with a big band sound - quite addictive, especially their first album, Burlesque.

All this bagpipe talk brigns back memorys of an Ausie piping in the sunrise over the Grand Canyon.

I picked up Genesis, Foxtrot today. This is one I never heard or owned, but had read good things about. I'm really enjoying it. No bagpipes though...

My sister played the bagpipes in our high school band. I really like the way they sound, but definitely NOT an inside instrument!! *puts fingers in ears*

The famouse College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts

I like bagpipes too but I'm glad I don't live close to this school.
