Hello everyone !
I first apologize for my english, as a french student, I might do some mistakes. I'm new on this forum and I've created my account just to share with you guys the most incredible metal song I've came accross since I'm born.
I am soon 20 years old, and I've been familiar with metal my whole life. When I was very young, I was already headbanging on some Jimmy Hendrix and jumping everywhere with NOFX. I've then discovered more and more styles, bands, and I am now a huge fan of Gojira. I am also a fan of bands like Bullet For My Valentine, or System Of A Down.
Some months ago, I discovered a song by accident, watching a stream on Twitch, of a guy playing a game called Osu. (it's a rythm game where you click circles)
When I first listened to this song, I liked it and I decided to listen to it on youtube.
The full name is "Painters of the Tempest (Part II): Triptych Lux" by the band "Ne Obliviscaris" and it is 16min34 long.
I've listened it once, twice, etc... And I've fallen inlove instantly of this song. Despite its length, it always seems too short.
Ne Obliviscaris are a six-piece Australian progressive metal band from Melbourne. There are in the band : 1 Singer, 1 Violinist, 2 guitarists, 1 drummer and 1 bassist.
Painters of the Tempest is devided in 3 parts. The first part is like an Intro, the second part (the one I am talking about) is the "core" and the third part is like an outro. But the second part is itself devided in 3 Movements.
- 1st movement : Creator (7min20 long)
- 2nd movement : Cynosure (3min40 long)
- 3rd movement : Curator (5min34 long)
The first movement is the hardest, it screams a lot, the music is very aggressive and not enjoyable by everyone. I personnally like it but what I prefer is the second and third movement. The second movement is very calm and progressively goes hard again. The final and last movement is the most beautiful one.
While writing this topic, I realize that I have so much to say on thsi song but I don't know where to start, and It is hard for me to explain what the song is made off, I just can say that the title of the music is really well chosen, this song is like a Tempest. It flows like water, sometimes hard, sometimes calm.
This music is a true masterpiece, this is my most listened song on Spotify this year, and I've discovered other songs by Ne Obliviscaris that are also awesome.
I am happy to say that Painters Of The Tempest is my favorite metal song of all time. But what would make me extremely happy is that you guys listen to it (or a part of it) so we could discuss about it, or share some new songs, or idk... I am so inlove of this song that I wanted to let everyone around me hear it but nobody understands...
I am sorry for this poorly written topic, this is my last hope, I just want to talk about something I truly love to people who care about music, and about metal.
Thank you for reading this topic, take care and don't hesitate to talk to me !
