"Exotic" Folk Metal?
Buttercheese posted a topic in Power MetalPower Metal is one of those very much European metal subgenres, mainly through it's influences through norse mythology, European folklore and European classical music. Which is great and all, but I have often thought to myself: Wouldn't it be great to get more Power Metal with thematical and instrumental influences from other cultures? I know that some bands occassionally like to dabble in the area of Arabian Nights, but I feel there is so much potential here for bands to actually specialise in this stuff. So, does anybody know any Power Metal bands - or even Folk Metal bands, come to think of it - that are a bit more "exotic" that way? PS: Like the idiot I am, I complete mixed up folk and power at first (in my defense, a lot of bands I like do both at the same time, so it's hard to tell where which starts and where which ends). What I meant was folk metal, not power metal. Though of course I do prefer the mix of the two subgenres.
Heavy Vocal Distortion - 666 Songs of Madness
Necturion posted a topic in Promote YourselfHello, I am creating this topic to promote a non-band project I've started around a year ago. I hope this is the correct place to do this, but I've looked through the other sections and thought this would probably be the most fitting. What is this all about? Last year I have started to compile metal songs I love into a public playlist. The playlist was quickly growing as I was listening to close to 60 songs/day (sometimes more), filtering out the, in my opinion, best ones in the process. I then decided on the rule to make the playlist 666 songs long and eventually start a new one. Why are you sharing this? I started this playlist for myself, but managed to somehow make some people find it and accumulate 8 followers by doing absolutely nothing. I then thought it would be fun to try and get more followers to promote Extreme-Metal music and artists. I also wanted to have other people show me their bands and albums (or just their favorites) to promote them if I like them and give them some form of exposure. How can I apply to be featured in a playlist? Simply answer here and I'll check out the band. Please provide a spotify link as this playlist won't feature any artists that is not on spotify to make it more accessible for everyone. Who are you anyways? If you care, just your average fan. If you want more infos about my listening habits you can check out my last.fm from my signature. I have logged almost 19000 songs heard after 1 year of usage. I have also written an introduction on this forum here. How YOU can help! First of all, follow the lists and share them with some friends. Shuffle through the songs from time to time and add some of the songs YOU enjoy to your personal playlist, check out the full albums, do as you please and just enjoy yourself. Also showing me some bands that could be featured would also be a huge help! Give me the playlists!
