Your education begins here!

on August 18, 2012

One of the main reasons that I’ve started this blog, aside from trying to do something productive, is to start to enlighten people of one of the newest genres of music that I’ve found; symphonic metal.  Now, I know that half of you out there are thinking that I’m off my rocker…and you’d be right.  But, that not withstanding, I have to tell you that you don’t know what YOU’RE missing out on.

See, one of the things that I like about music is that it is based on one’s perception.  You feel the music flow through you.  Hence why people dance, as well.  That deals with perception…how it makes you feel.  Symphonic metal (I know most of you listen to rap…but for those of you that DO like rock-type music) is an awesome thing to feel.

Described in places as death metal or gothic metal (which I don’t agree with), symphonic metal is a genre that deals with rock melodies and characteristics of metal (guitars, drums, etc.) combined with orchestral qualities, which has a unique “feel” all its’ own.  Groups like Savatage, Within Temptation, Delain, Dimmu Borgir (which is technically dark metal), and Apocalyptica (which, believe it or not, has classically-trained cello players) have made this group of music enter my catalogue, each with a style all there own.

If you’re bold enough, you can do the research.  I just wanted to, hopefully, grab peoples’ attentions and elevate their musical databases…you never know what places music will take you if you feel it.

More later and until then /,,,/ rock on dudez /,,,/
