Skeletons in the Closet

Post by Carcass » Thu Mar 26, 2009 7:39 pm

The metal audience is normally considered rather closed-minded. Prove me wrong!

Here's the deal. You have to post at least one music video (such as pop, electronica, rap...) you like that reduces your credibility as a 'metal head'.

Me first:
The Flashbulb - Kirlian Shores
Mogwai - Friend of the Night

This is the former band of film-score composer Danny Elfman (Spider-Man -trilogy, Mission: Impossible, pretty much every Tim Burton -movie). Fucktarded name, but I loved this song:
Oingo Boingo - Stay

These aren't technically music videos of course, but perhaps my two favourite pieces of non-metal/rock music:
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky - Scene 1 from Swan Lake
Antonín Dvořák - New World Symphony, 4th mvt.

But I was thinking more like 1-3 videos per person. Nobody's going to watch all of these. :D

The Moody Blues - Nights in White Satin

Never fails to move me. However the overall atmosphere and feel of the song is somewhat doom-metalish.

Ah well.

Crap. I got nothing. I guess I fit the stereotype.

I'll post a video anyways. It's a hard rock cover, but much better than the original. I posted this video a long time ago.
Too bad most of you guys can't read the comments; they are very funny! Btw, the guy is singing in a made up language, in case you are wondering. Not Spanish, not English, just what the guy understood from listening to the original English version. :lol:

Here's a band I just discovered, Van Canto. A cappella versions of metal classics:

Fear Of The Dark (Iron Maiden)
Kings Of Metal (Manowar)
Battery (Metallica)
Wishmaster (Nightwish)

And my favourite:
The Bard's Song - In The Forest (Blind Guardian)

Sounds really cool once you recover from the first shock. :lol:

Mozart's Concerto for Clarinet, 3rd movement. It means a lot for me (I've played the whole concerto, but this one has a special meaning for me)

Definitely not metal...

The Beatles - Yellow Submarine cartoon excerpt
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3ICOe2BGK0

I remember this crazy, psychedelic cartoon delighted me and my cousins when we were little kids. We hated the "Blue Meanies" (cops!) and always cheered for the lads during this classic animated adventure. :)
