    Impressive charts. :) I saw Devin Townsend's gig with Ché as they played Casualties of Cool. Whoah, that intimacy. I'm going to the Royal Albert Hall gig as well. Lol, I've never been to UK before. :P

    Leprous has roots in jazz, probably helps them push the bass more into the forefront. Stolen Babies is a bit harder to pin down, but just look at Mousefood haha...that's pure moshpit grade avant-garde metal and it has so much slap bass. Is it weird if I just kinda got bored with Devin Townsend after a while? He has an amazing voice and I love his use of layering, it just feels like his lyrics don't hold up well to repeat listenings. Deconstruction gets a looot of praise for being a great transition album into avant-garde metal, and the live version of SUmeria has Joe Duplantier's vocal tracks dubbed over a Clutch Cargo style animated whale with a mouth/beanie hat!

    Carbonized is definitely a very quirky group based on these first two tracks...very good melodies, experimental as well. I always found the rhythms the most memorable aspect of metal personally...there is something magical about the vocal contrasts in bands like Before the Dawn and Amorphis, though. A lot of math metal rhythms kinda stuck with me after a huge djent obsession, vildhjarta's status among my charts is the biggest tip-off to that lol. It also shows in the tech. death that's hooked me though, like Allegaeon. A quick cursory glance at my charts will give you an idea why I like Paradise Lost, given that they heavily inspired Orphaned Land and, like you said, do some Depeche Mode type metal. I love it, somehow I haven't caught up to the most recent Dark Tranquillity album. How does that hold up to repeat listens? Glad you like my bass playing, aiming to make virtuoso bassist prog metal (since it's basically all virtuoso guitarist solo material) with avant-garde thrown in too!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQlTy3FuWLc Speaking of bass, I recorded this improv after finally getting audio to write to the hard drive...I use an odd ADGCGC tuning for that harmonics effect about 45 seconds in and bigger dynamics. Excuse the poor audio quality, recording line in is new to me...the music compensated enough to make it worthy of uploading after panning it on two other audio tracks to fill it out.

    And now for one of my favorite topcis: bass guitar! I'll agree that metal really underuses it, and Pain of Salvation's album Entropia was actually a huge early bass guitar influence for me. It's strange when you realize the bands that are influenced by Death and Iron Maiden don't take the awesome playing style and add modern tones...but Steve Digiorgio did go on to work with Christian Muenzner, hehe. Rani Sharone is just a great musician in general, his quirky side project from Stolen babies was proof that he's probably the person that composes the frameworks for them. Gotta love accordion and circus music thrown into metal, lol. At the least we're going to see more 5 and 6 string basses in the prog sphere, I've already gone to 5/6 string basses and 7 string guitars after about 4/5 years of playing.

    Funny that you called it FLametal, there's actually an instrumental prog metal band that uses the name haha. Ill Nino got me interested in the idea and bands like Ankla, Breed77 and Ne Obliviscaris truly pushed it forwards. I think it'd be cool if Ne Obliviscaris threw some classical elements alongside the flamenco parts actually, don't think I've heard those two styles fused...at the least we know they won'y take so long between albums now! As far as Jari goes, I don't think he has poor work ethic; He's written 6 albums worth of material (at least he claims he has.) It's moreso rabid perfectionism, which honestly, in metla in general, I'd love to see more audiophile grade production with the kind of peak limiting bands like Nero Di marte and Ne Obliviscaris use become more popular, with about half a decibel of headroom so the mp3 rips don't clip.

    Dune actually entirely got me into epic story telling, the first book alone was essentially three! Prog metal/rock got me away from nu metal...sci-fi just made me see how poorly written nu metal often is. Sci-fi has the unique trait of being direct while also having really high concepts and convincing dialogue. I've never seen legend of the Seeker, what approach did that take with the fantasy genre? Star Wars is something I never truly understood the appeal of, but episodes 4-6 were top notch for their time. I can't even defend the effects in the prequel, George Lucas lost his damn mind...would rather watch Howard the Duck than see the prequels again haha. From my understanding it was one of the first sci-fi movies to truly show exploration of different worlds, and I can see how that could be exciting as an introduction to the genre. FOr all we know, C3PO and R2D2 were the first famous Hollywood gay couple lol.

    How long was the gap between their demo and Portal and I? Citadel felt less epic but more focused, if that makes sense...definitely more dynamic/intense as a whole. My favorite demo is probably either Nonpoint's Struggle (it's kinda nu, but it does have great Latin bits and nostalgic value) or Animist's EP. I just find it odd that metal in general doesn't have Latin influences generally, it seems to merge gorgeously with just about all kinds of folk. I dare say that there's great groups to be found from Vedic influenced to oriental to everything Wintersun does...makes me wonder why bands like Slayer are revered instead, time has been incredibly kind to expansive metal guitar tones. Cygnus is an example to me how progressive metal can have some of the best basslines out there, bass is an amazing and underappreciated instrument it seems. Thankfully, bassists like Steve DiGiorgio, Ian Rockitt and Ryan Martinie are fighting for more bass visibility in metal.

    I got lucky and had a girlfriend that tore me away from nu metal and towards sci-fi, haha...though I suppose I always liked sci-fi quite a bit, loved 1984 in high school and read Dune in middle school. It actually forever changed the way I saw truly epic fiction...been meaning to get around to some good fantasy stories, but for some reason it just doesn't feel like it has the same level of immersiveness. Maybe it's more focused on interesting worlds more than having a deep undercurrent? It actually seems like it's more character focused while sci-fi is more high concept, but I imagine there's an ersatz equivalent in fantasy to the Discworld series. Even the sci-fi comedy is high concept, hehe.

    I keep hearing great things about Babylon 5, but it seems like it's deeeep levels of sci-fi. Stargate, Asimov's original Foundation trilogy and Frank Herbert's Dune are preparing me for it someday, though. Firefly is another show I want to watch someday. You mentioned comics, that sparks my interest...the original run of the Robocop comics was surprisingly really dman good. Are there any Seven of Nine/Q based ones? Discord has been in some MLP comics with awesome humor, but it'd be great to see the character in something with a bit more serious overtones as well. Also, props on all the Ne Obliviscaris plays, there needs to be more metal with flamenco added!

    Call me crazy if you want, but I love the animated series...it's basically a fun, high concept cartoon, haha...Kirk became a FISH! As for serious Trek, I like The Next Generation and will go through Deep Space 9 after Stargate. I loved a book called I, Q...had Data, Picard and Q going on an adventure together!

Über mich

Only the best and the classiest of all music will be seen on my page.

Warning: If you want to add me to your friend-list, then please have a conversation with me first. This is a social networking site, not high school. No one cares how many "friends" you have. The point is to converse with like-minded people about music and whatever else comes to mind.
I'm a huge Prog junkie! Progressive and Experimental music is my favorite. I just love musicians that aim to make their music different that what other people are putting out. I also enjoy most sub genres of Metal. My favorites (other than prog) is Black Metal, Power Metal, Heavy Metal, Folk Metal and Death Metal. I also enjoy Rock, Classical, Jazz, Folk and a tiny dash of Rap and Electronic music.

Feel free to recommend me music of any of these genres:
Atmospheric Black Metal
Ambient Black Metal
Progressive Metal/Rock
Progressive Black Metal
Post Black Metal
Trip-Hop
Free Jazz
Classical
Neo/Dark Folk
Funeral Doom Metal
Unique Progressive Rock/Metal
Opera
Dark Cabaret
Ambient/Dark Ambient
Psytrance/Psybient
Medieval Folk/Instrumental Folk
Or just Dark and Twisted music with a sense of humor in general (a little bit of humor with the darkness makes it even better)
