People who don’t listen to metal often or who just don’t understand the amount of sub categories there are, too many often don’t realize that metal is beautiful music too. I had to look up metal on wikipedia to realize hey I like metal and I like it alot. Why didn’t I know? I don’t like screaming in songs, although yelling is ok. Is there a difference? I’m not sure but what I listen to has enough yelling to think so. But putting together different sounds and forming a heavy metal orchestra of sorts is wonderful. I’m not sure what constitutes metal and I hope all the songs I list are metal in some form (if not please tell me).
So here’s so of what I think is good. I’m not going to write about classics like Black Sabbath and Judas Priest which are awesome, but those are definitely metal and I wouldn’t get confused about it.
Within Temptation Angels beautiful singing and instruments
Apocalyptica Hall of the Mountain King Cellos oh yeah! A lot of Classical music sounds good as metal for some reason.
Birthday Massacre Blue
Inis Mona Eluveitie Violin, flute, etc… awesomeness
Evanescence umm mostly all so here’s a good one missing
As you can see all the songs are not necessarily in English. So tell me what you think. I’ve been told that Oomph was scary but I don’t really see it. There are a lot more metal songs I listen to, but I think that’s a good amount to show that metal is beautiful too. And so I officially like and listen to any type of music as long as its good and yes that includes blue grass, country, rap, foreign music etc.
