Hmm, it may indeed be an adoptable trait... Further testing is required.

I found a (V)ethvl thread. :o

...And no mention of the awesomest band evar.

Oh well, I shall have to remedy that.

. . .

EPICA

Probably not to most of y'all's tastes, but it is, indeed, the greatest band in the universe. Evar.



Simone Simons (the main female vocalist) is a Goddess. <3 I love her more than everything. Her voice is divine. She is everything I aspire to be. I would worship at her feet, had I the chance.

I could've sworn that Epic was mentioned somewhere, but maybe not. I like them, I don't know if I'd call them the greatest band ever, but they are up there. I am particularly fond of metal bands with female singers.

I checked the whole thread to be sure I wasn't posting something already mentioned. If Epica had been mentioned, I would have emitted a high-pitched girlish squeal. *NodNod.*

I love Metal with female vocals, but I'm very picky about them. XD I don't like pop sounding vocals.

Like, I LOVE Nightwish. They were my favorite band before I discovered Epica. But... Anette sorta makes me think of a pop band. :| I mean, she IS a good singer... I just don't adore her like I do Tarja.

I've tried other Metal bands with female vocalists, but I don't get the same chill down my spine that Simone or Tarja gives me.

Yeah, I know what you mean about Anette. It took me awhile before I liked her enough to listen to the album a second time, but I can appreciate her now... though Tarja is better in my opinion. It is weird, since my fiance likes Anette and hates Tarja... I mean, yeah, she does belt it out on occasion but she has so much more range. Oh well, at least she has a solo album.

I also really like Lacuna Coil, I think Cristina has a great voice... also I totally think that Evanescence ripped the band's style off and did it poorly.

The main problem I have with a lot of metal bands with female singers is that they also seem to feel the need to have a male death metal singer... like scremo-death metal ala Cradle of Filth style singer.... and I hate that. Sirenia and Kivimetsan Druidi are like that.

Ooh, I like Lacuna Coil. Well, a few songs at least. I have them on my iTunes. I really like Cristina Scabbia's voice, because I can match it at least slightly. I have a cover of the song she did with Apocalyptica on Youtube. >w<

When I first listened to Epica, I didn't like the death growls. They've slowly grown on me and now I love them. I read a comment on Youtube once that explained the purpose of them and I love it. They said that it's a Beauty and the Beast thing. Epica doesn't sing about a perfect world, so the guttural grunts and growls are meant to be imperfections in the world.

I don't get screaming, tho. :/ Occasionally I like it (I have some CoF on my iTunes. Just two albums, tho), but mostly it gives me a headache.

Growling > Screaming, imo.

Agreed. I can at least make out what they are saying when they are growling most of the time... death screaming... not so much.

It's really funny because I used to be fine with screamo metal and then I turned twenty and it just started to give me headaches. Never really figured out why.

When I was younger (like, 6ish XD) I hated Metal, because all I'd ever heard was my mom's version. Like, the stuff they play on the radio. I like some of that stuff now, but back then, it sounded like high-pitched screaming to me.

Maybe music is like food... Your tastes change as you get older?

O.o

Meh, one of my best friends is (was?) a Juggalette.

I dun get it. :/

I mean, I used to listen to the Top 40 stations in middle school, but I never really liked the rap. Except for Eminem. O.o

I also was an Enya and Loreena McKennitt junkie. >.>

I love Loreena McKennitt and Enya!

My musical tastes actually had a really strange development. My parents are old, so until I was around ten all I listened to was the oldies station (I like oldies and classic rock). I was semi-aware of modern music... I had heard of Nirvana, Michael Jackson, etc but it was this separate thing. Then my brother got a girlfriend who had a son my age, we hung out a lot. He listed to the local rap station (this was '95/'96 rap), so I did too... I even owned a cassette tape of Coolio's Gangsta's Paradise (did I mention I am whiter than white and lived ten minutes from Compton?)

So yeah, I got my own radio around that time, found the pop station and went into the teeny bopper stage. I am ashamed to admit this, but I liked Celine Dion and Brittany Spears... I owned the first Backstreet Boys, N'Sync, and Hanson albums... I have long since destroyed them.

I was also familiar with metal at this time. My brother is a huge Metallica and Guns & Roses fan so he made sure I was exposed. I liked it, my mother didn't, and I still wasn't able to watch MTV because "I was too young"

MTV saved me from myself. I started watching it in 8th grade, for the pop videos. I watched pretty much any video that came on, rap, rock, pop, whatever. I was a top 40 fan. Then I watched Twelve Angry Viewers (a show I liked but am kinda glad it's gone because they really did destroy videos, and that is bad). The video they were judging was Tourniquet by Marilyn Manson. I had sorta heard of Manson before, a cousin of mine liked him but that was all I knew. So I watched with rapt attention.

I fucking loved it.

Out went the pop albums, in came Manson, Korn, Rage Against the Machine, and numerous other metal and rock bands and I never looked back. Friends recommend other bands outside of the mainstream, and now those are my favorites. I stopped watching MTV when they stopped playing music by the good bands... or music at all (I missed early 90s MTV and I kick myself for it)

I do like Eminem sometimes, because he sings about stuff other than "ganstas, bitches, and ho's", some of his stuff is funny, and Manson is in one of his videos. I have never understood the ICP obsession, ever. I think I've been able to listen to only one of their songs the whole way though, but otherwise I have never liked them.

But yeah, that is my transition into a metalhead.

The first song I remember loving is George Thorogood and the Destroyers' You Talk Too Much. I was five (or younger). I would sing it whenever it came on on my mom's cassette player. I also loved Bad to the Bone (Maybe someday I'll post my parody of that here...).

Unfortunately, when my parents got married (I was the flower girl!!) many things changed for the worse. Most of which I won't mention here, but the most relevant one would be the music. My father liked country music.

COUNTRY MUSIC. D:

The bane of my existence. I had to listen to it constantly, because the h*llhole of a town I lived in didn't have ANY radio stations EXCEPT country. (You know that town nearby where people say all the hicks live, where incest and sheep-f***ing abounds? Yeah, that's where I lived. -.-')

In fourth grade, we moved to my grandparents' house briefly. It was an even SMALLER town, and we lived like five miles away from it, but the top 40s stations actually came in!

And that was when I fell in love with Britney Spears, the Backstreet Boys, and N*Sync. The only cassette I ever owned (my family was poor >.>) was the Backstreet Boys' Millennium album. I loved it. Well, I loved two or three songs on it, at least. XD

I loved Britney Spears up until middle school. I had two of her CDs. I still don't understand why.

Fortunately, my AWESOME Art/English/Geography/History teacher (she totally should have been paid more, considering how many classes she taught...) introduced me to Enya and Loreena McKennitt. Her daughter burned me CDs (That said "Not for listening in class" on them XD) and I seriously listened to them until the metallic film on the CD peeled off.

Around 9th grade, I stopped listening to Top 40 stuff. I started listening to "New Rock and 90s Alternative." XD Oh, and I was obsessed with Green Day. That was around when their American Idiot CD came out.

I gradually moved to the harder Rock and Metal channel.

And then I met Chris.

I was 18, and Chris was this lil' metalhead I met on GaiaOnline (Shutup. >.>) who liked sending me furry porn. He helped me SO much musically (and in loads of other ways).

Eventually, I found my own musical taste. It varies and is weird, but it works for me.

My favorite genre is Symphonic Metal, but my iTunes has everything from Electronica to 80's Europop.

And that's how Equestria was made. Maybe next time I can tell you how I came to like the music I do!

I used to like a lot of retarded shit. And sadly that band was one of them.

I can even remember what song and what band that converted me into Power metal. but I'll first list off some bands that I enjoied even while liking my sad taste in music.

I promise. It's still metal.

First off, Soilwork was a good band for me. Natural Born Chaos has like 90% good songs and 10% meh songs. Overall, it has everything power. But for some reason it's not classified as one. Strange.

Second: God Forbid. For this reason alone.



Very political metal band. Kinda like SOAD but without...I dunno, SOAD.

But the song and band that got me ABSOLUTELY AMAZED at power metal was Wintersun:

Just wait until you hear him sing besides scream. It was incredible to listen to for the first time.



Still love this band. Sucks they still have not released a new albulm in over 10 years.


Unfortunately, when my parents got married (I was the flower girl!!) many things changed for the worse. Most of which I won't mention here, but the most relevant one would be the music. My father liked country music.

COUNTRY MUSIC. D:


I live in the south. And I know what you mean. Thankfully my dad listened to Bon Jovi and my mom wasa huge Pink Floyd Fan. Im a fan of both!

On occasion while I do karaoke, I'll admit I do country songs. But as my finale I always end with bands like Blind Guardian (Yeah, Karaoke exists for them). But sadly it's always this song:



Look I do karaoke at a VFW. There are a lot of old people there and they only let me sing because I can do some mad Bon Jovi / Pink Floyd. But at the end I always pull the stuff I like. I think the heaviest thing I have ever done was Bright Eyes by Blind Guardian.

I second this motion.

I'm just sad that every single karaoke place around here simply doesn't have the music that I know/can sing.

My mom likes Bon Jovi and Pink Floyd. I like some Bon Jovi. Not a Pink Floyd fan (which is apparently tantamount to heresy >.>).

And I'm from Oregon, and I randomly have a southern twang. How weird is that? I had a British friend of mine tell me my voice sounded "Backwoods." So I sound like a hick? :/ I blame my Southern Nana and Father. (And this totally relates to Metal. >.>)

As for Karaoke, I've never done it. Well, unless you count the one time I did it with one of my best friends and my sister on my friend's Xbox... I totally PWNED Ice Ice Baby.

I also do covers of songs and put them on Youtube. That may count as karaoke. Iunno.

Truth.

I'm also wondering how you like Ayreon but not Pink Floyd... just twist the genre a bit and they're pretty similar!
