List 'Em - Bands posted 27 Sep 2005, 02:09 by Scilvenas, Auditor

If there's any kind of thread that people will respond to, it's the dreaded list (even if it's already been done before several times, which it might have been). And since music seems to be about the only thing going these days... So top five 1. Clutch 2. Queens of the Stone Age 3. Tool 4. Pelican 5. Alice in Chains Honorable Mentions: A Perfect Circle, Bad Religion, Calexico, Dredg, Failure, GnR, Metallica, Tom Waits, Ween view post


posted 27 Sep 2005, 03:09 by Magadon, Commoner

My top five: 1. Alice in Chains--I loved these guys growing up. 2. Led Zeppelin--Best rock singer EVER. So many great songs and albums. 3. Stevie Ray Vaughan--Best blues rock musician EVER. I could listen to those blues solos forever. 4. Soundgarden--Second best rock singer. That range is only second to Plant's. But Cornell's got a hell of a banshee wail. 5. Pearl Jam--I'm a product of the Seattle Scene, if you couldn't tell, but I'm just discovering now how great this band really is. They're the Stones and the Aerosmith of my generation. I think they'll be around forever. Honorable mentions: Rage Against the Machine, Stone Temple Pilots, Eric Clapton (in all his incarnations), Jimi Hendrix, Bob Seger, Van Halen (with Roth), etc., etc. view post

Atheist Cynic Gordian Knot Opeth Crowbar Those are my favorite metal bands. I could list a hundred of those. These are other. Led Zeppelin Martin Springett Mahavishnu Orchestra Bill Evans Dredg The Cars Rammstein Russian Circles Isis Pelican I'll probably do another list. :oops: view post

1) Blind Guardian 2) Iced Earth 3) Avantasia 4) All That Remains 5) hmmmm hard one........ Bruce Dickinsons Solo Carrer will take my fifth spot. Was going too put Demons and Wizards on the list but since thier a joint effort from Hanzi (From Blind Guardian) and Jon Scauffer (from Iced Earth) I figured I'd just give them a honrable mention. view post

posted 25 Nov 2005, 03:11 by Nauticus, Auditor

I do agree. The entire song is crafted so masterfully. I love how ambient it is during that, and how it builds back up. Sixty minutes just flies right by. I saw Rent the other night, and I have to give it credit - I love that musical. So, I'll make a list of musicals now. 1. Les Miserables 2. Jekyll & Hyde 3. Rent 4. Phantom of the Opera 5. Rasputin 6. Jesus Christ Superstar 7. Wicked 8. Whistle Down the Road 9. Joseph And the Amazing Technicolored Dreamcoat 10. Nostradamus The first three are completely interchangable, and the rankings change daily. view post

Hi, first post here...I was going to lurk until I actually read some of the PoN trilogy but I just can't pass these type of threads up. In no particular order (but with the more liked ones toward the top), my favourite bands would have to be: Cog The Mars Volta The Butterfly Effect Karnivool Tool Sigur Ros (I've only heard () but that album takes my breath away - the music is so beautiful, yet so fragile) Nine Inch Nails Metallica A Perfect Circle Fear Factory Mudvayne Pink Floyd Led Zepplin Marilyn Manson Guns'n'Roses That's about all I can think of at the moment. view post


posted 07 Jan 2006, 15:01 by Scilvenas, Auditor

Welcome, MoP. Feel free to stop by the introductions thread so Da'Krul can give you your cookie. Decent list. view post


posted 13 Jan 2006, 04:01 by Ser Stubby, Commoner

My first substantial post here as well, aside from the Greetings thread. Like MoP I cannot resist such lists, and here is mine: Pink Floyd Metallica ZZ Top George Thorogood & The Destroyers The Angels AC/DC John Butler Trio The Jets Green Day Pearl Jam Nirvana U2 Showing my age I guess...... view post

The Tangent will be releasing one of the best progressive rock albums of all time at the beginning of Febraury, called [i:4ceduxdk]A Place in the Queue[/i:4ceduxdk]. I've heard it, many times, so I agree. It's my favorite prog rock album at the moment. view post

Ooooh, I'll keep an eye out for "Piddle", just for the name... That CD would go on the top of the stack. Hehehe. Seems like the majority of people who post here are into Metal, or at least prog rock, which I find interesting. Does it go with the literature, or is it just that people are more passionate about that sort of music? Personally, I started out on '80's cock rock, have been through Punk, Death, Techno, Alternative, Stoner and Retro and still love some of all of it. ALL TIME FAVES (in no particular order - various genres) Nirvana Judas Priest Pantera Sex Pistols/NoFX (Tie between the original and the best) Infected Mushroom Fear Factory The Pixies Motorhead Regurgitator Portishead I'll keep to ten for now. view post

posted 26 Apr 2006, 12:04 by Curethan, Didact

Could be that liking fantasy and metal are just both signs of good taste. You take fantasy books to metal shows? I assume there was more to it than expecting to get bored :wink: Oh, I wish GWAR would tour down here. Hmm, maybe I should carry a spare copy of "darkness" around... hehe I tried looking on the 'net for Piddle, just got a lot of stuff I didn't wanna know about, so if Edge of Certainty or anyone else can tell me where I might be able to find this band's work I'd be grateful (I'm in Australia, remember). view post


posted 26 Apr 2006, 14:04 by gierra, Sorcerer-of-Rank

haha no, we started talkin on a metal board and just decided to trade some books... i dunno what the correllation is.. except for myself. i like folky, epic black metal, which often has very fantastic elements in its music and lyrics.. conversely i like a lot of gory death metal, which helps to appreciate the war scenes.. ok, i'm just pullin stuff outta my ass now.. view post

piddle is garage band here in my neighborhood....lol...i don't think you'll find anything about them on the internet (i don't theink they even have a sample tape) I need cheeta and blue wish are both cross genre bands (mainly mixing cultural music and various forms of modern contemporary) Why Irish is a lesser known Irish punk band based in Chicago. Miss Nancy's 2nd Grade Insanitarium is the alter ego name of a band called Arkangel (which is my last name) Janitors of Asgard is a non-existant band (but i wish they were real) that i made up one saturday after having a bad dream after eating too many starbursts.... the rest are bands (mostly cultural based) that i had the honor to meet on my world travels when i was semi-rich...if you ever get the chance, travel the world...it's awesome but yeah, there may be one or two of those that i listed that might possibly have a few albums that one may actually purchase, but mostly, i only listen to non-profit bands... view post

I started out playing guitar and heavy reading at the same time (12), I started out reading fantasy and frigging Grisham and Crichton. Guitar wise I started playing guitar by playing bluegrass, eventually my personality became more pissy and cynical and I moved to metal, now that I have matured a very tiny bit I prefer post rock, jazz, jazz fusion, fusion and classic stuff as well as Death Metal and Thrash. BM comes off as pretentious to me (yes even more so then Post Rock :P ) and really just doesn't do it for me, well, most metal music doesn't for me even though I play that type of music. GO figure? :| :?: view post

posted 30 May 2006, 13:05 by Scilvenas, Auditor

Honestly, I can't remember why I didn't like it. I just remember suffering through one track then skipping through the rest. I think it was a bit too ambient and out there for my tastes. Makes sense, though, since... Pike?... went to High on Fire whose music is great, but I can't stand the vocals ... probably for the same reason I can never get into The Dillinger Escape Plan. view post
