 ;D This hasn't got a thing to do with WoW, but, I'm wondering, what sort of music do you guys listen to?

(I'm in a very music-oriented mood right now for some reason)

I have a very wide taste in music, I can happily listen to Billy Joel, Metallica, the Doobie Brothers, or Frankie Vallie and the Four Seasons.  However, I have a specific style that I really like.

It goes by several names, and there are some subtle differences between them, but my favorite style is known as "Symphonic Power Metal", "Symphonic Rock", and sometimes "Epic Metal" or something similar.  It is basically musically complex metal with a prog feel, often played at a fast tempo with occasional accompaniment by traditional symphonic insturments (a choir, a string section, etc)

It's quite interesting, I think.

Some of the bands that fall into this category are:

Dream Theater (On the lighter side of this genre)
Symphony X (One of the best examples of this genre)
Angra (Very upbeat but not too heavy)
Avantasia (A metal opera, literally)
Kamelot (Very classic clean sort of sound)
Falconer (Prog Metal with a bit of a folk music feel)
Wuthering Heights (Same but heavier)
Nightwish (Female opera-trained lead singer)
Sonata Artica (Faster and simpler melodies than most)
Thy Majestie (My personal favorite - very very complex music, takes a while to get used to)

Okay, so, I hope that was amusing to you.  :)

I guess we've both got some research to do, because although I've heard of a few of those bands, I couldn't identify them if I heard their music.  Most of 'em I haven't heard of at all.

Yea I dont really care for all the new "hip" or "cool" music.  Its just prettied up people with strings attached to them and some corporate fatty controlling them.  ;D ;D ;D

Well as kailef knows, I follow with the Symphonic rock as well.  But I also tend to hit a strong Metal, Classic Rock, and Classical sections.

Give me some Johnny Cash, classic Metallica, some AC/DC, Don Giovanni, NIN, Rage, Les Miserables. Its all about quality and variety.

Eh, so Im a dilletante, it happens.

Hey Kai, you might be interested in some Stratovarius.  Especially their song "Destiny"....  Good symphonic metal stuff....
Shades of mediocrity...

*Nod*  Yes, I've got a couple of Strat albums, actually.  They are good, if occasionally a little less complex that I prefer.  If you like Stratovarius, get ahold of another band that's very similar named "Sonata Arctica" that's also excellent.
