What are you listening to?

Recommended Posts

Wow. Tine Turner was only known by her hoarse track of 'What's love got to do with it', but coming across other tracks, she is really good.

was listening to swiss pop radio (ballads genre) and came across many unknown artists who are also too good, like Hanna boel, red nex, rasmus, alexander klaws and love them too.

I give you the one, the only, Amy Lee of Evanescence:

I guess sometimes Angels do take human form.  Her voice is like one of the trumpets that will shatter the 7th seal of the Apocalypse!  Reality itself breaks like glass in the presence of here ethereal voice!

Yes, @exile360 I do love me some Amy. In fact I've been called out a couple times for reposting her music. 🙂

Her voice on this track is absolutely astounding.  Her intensity is beyond absurd; you can literally FEEL the words as she cries them out, it's like taking the same level of intensity, ferocity and extreme emotion of Slipknot and imbuing it into a brilliant opera singer and the end result is greater than the sum of its parts:

 

I do agree she is an awesome entertainer and perhaps I can agree on the emotion part being compared to Slipknot , but that's about it. Sorry... I know you and Alex love the death metal groups but the only thing I hear when listening to that is the growl or whatever you want to call it ruining the actual music. In some cases if you pay close attention you might be able to tell what is being said but in many cases no one can tell what they're saying so why even do it? I don't see the growl as a musical input. Amy on the other hand is very emotional and you can actually tell and understand what she sings.

Is the "growl" the emotion that somehow draws you to the music? Just curious

Really like the sound of "The Rasmus" but pretty dark video 🙂

Hanne Boel is a great little find. Haven't heard before.


Normally I do not like any type of music in Automotive or Motorcycle videos but in this case I'll give it a pass. Excellent music choice  W.A.S.P. - Rebel In The F.D.G  that blends well with the video and still allows the motorcycle screams to be heard.
Side note: When you see 2 motorcycles side-by-side you know one of them caught up to the other and is going to quickly pass the other. There is a 10 second delay between each rider taking off. So you have 10 seconds and can get up to 150 mph in that time and cover a lot of ground.  When another rider catches up to you that's got to be a really bad feeling knowing the other guy is that much better than you.

Unofficial current top speed record of 206 mph
Race lap record: 16 minutes 42.778 seconds
Length: 37.73 mi (60.725 km)

Between 1907 and 2019 there have been 151 fatalities during official practices or races on the Snaefell Mountain Course, and 260 total fatalities (this number includes the riders killed during the Manx Grand Prix, and Clubman TT race series of the late 1940s/1950s).

I'm not at their level of riding but I'd sure love to try the course

Hehe, I don't listen to death metal; more thrash metal (Slipknot, Mudvayne, Pantera, Anthrax, Megadeth, Metallica  etc.), heavy metal/alternative (Tool, Soundgarden, Alice In Chains, Rage Against the Machine, System of a Down, Faith No More etc.) and a bit of industrial (i.e. K.M.F.D.M, Nine Inch Nails, Fear Factory, Ministry etc.) as far as 'rock' music goes, along with some classic rock (Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin etc.) and some more mainstream stuff like Guns N' Roses.

As for the screaming/growling, it's just a sound I like, similar to enjoying the sound of an electric guitar through distortion vs an acoustic one.  Both are valid instruments, just with very different sounds.  The intensity/emotion in the singing is definitely a factor, but I'm not into every band that has a screaming singer (I'm no fan of pretty much anything categorized as 'death metal' or 'black metal' for the most part as they have very distinctive sounds/screams/growls that are not to my taste, and of course not all thrash metal bands/singers/songs even use screaming/growling at all, Dream Theater for example (definitely thrash even though they get labeled as 'progressive' or 'experimental', but you can play an Anthrax tune, a Slipknot tune, a Metallica tune back to back with a Dream Theater tune and it will fit right in because it is the same music/genre, but that's just semantics; some Tool songs would be correctly categorized as 'progressive' while others are most definitely just 'metal', while still others could be easily classified as 'thrash' because of the beat/rhythm/tempo/tuning/sound etc.).

I guess it is an acquired taste, but I enjoy it.  That said, there are plenty of thrash bands I don't like specifically on the basis of the vocals so it's really just a matter of whether or not I like what I hear, which is pretty much how I judge all music, and one of the reasons I'm into so many genres (even beyond any flavors of rock/metal, just as hip-hop, jazz, classical, folk, techno/electronica etc.).

In general I do like emotionally intense music/singing, but there are so many ways to express emotion vocally that there's a huge range of possibilities, including opera, or someone like Amy Lee or even someone like Axl Rose, David Draiman or even DMX, here's a prime example of what I'm talking about:

Thanks for the feedback @exile360 appreciated. Gives some understanding behind the music choice.

Yes DMX may be rap but at least it has a story (as most songs do) vs some of the hardcore rap that I'm not even sure how to categorize as they are so mean and hateful to everyone except themselves (they walk on water in their songs, and portray themselves with more arrogance than Floyd Mayweather.).  I wouldn't seek out a DMX song on my own but if I were at some location and they were playing it I'd be okay with it. The hardcore rap I'd probably leave as I find it distasteful

Yeah, there's good and bad in all genres and in all art forms, and of course different tastes which is why we have so many types of music and so many artists.  Wu-Tang is about as hardcore as I get.  Some of their music could technically be classified as 'gangster rap', especially some of their early tunes, but in reality most of what they rapped about, especially early on, had more to do with just talking about their actual life experiences on the streets and working to get their whole record deal/business set up.  It isn't really glorifying violence for the sake of violence, though many of their lyrics are quite graphic.  In fact, the entire reason I ended up getting into Wu-Tang was because of an earlier group, the Gravediggaz which featured the RZA (producer/member of the Wu-Tang Clan) as one of its members.  I remember when MTV caught wind of them and described it as a new genre called 'horror-core' which is ridiculous in my opinion.  You can have spooky themes/styles/lyrics etc. in any genre of music (except polka, but then again... :P) but that doesn't define that spooky song/album/band as some new genre or sub-genre just because they're into spooky stuff.  I mean they didn't rebrand Kiss and Ozzy as some new sub-genre just because of occult/Satanic themes...oh wait, they did come up with the term 'shock rock' didn't they?  Of course they also apply the same label to groups like ICP and Gwar even though they are clearly entirely different categories of music, just with common themes.  It's like calling every song about romance/relationships the 'romance' genre regardless of whether it's a slow country tune, an upbeat jazz tune, or a hard-core death metal epic ballad.  It just doesn't make sense because themes are not how genres of music are defined, at least not generally (though sometimes certain themes can be common traits of some genres among many of their songs/bands/albums like puppy dogs and pick-up trucks in country songs).
