the Neoclassical side of Metal
now here's a category that i personally adore..
it is known by its dark, introspective, even melancholic lyrics and the most important, a very very dreamy sensitive ambient..
Anyway, my favorite genres in Darkwave, is indeed the Neoclassical and the Ethereal
They are well known by the dark serene mood, the use of echo as sound effects and the vocals are usually meant to sound angelic.. such as soprano female vocals or bass/tenor male vocals which creates a surreal, dreamy, angelic atmosphere...
so we may say that it's a blend of Gothic metal and Doom except it's much softer than both..
although i do have a favorite in Darkwave, the very amazing “Die Verbannten Kinder Evas”...
they are my ship to my overworld, where the sun never dares to pass the gloomy clouds, and the breeze is nothing but a sweet sad dirge, repeated constantly, by some lost roaming ghosts..
ah.. it would be nice to live in such place, until this hour, the closest place i thought to do fine, is Norway.. until 'Hoest' from Taake decided to make the mother of all messes, one stupid ugly mess.
well back to reality,
Despite all my efforts to correct the unspeakable misunderstanding and prejudice of metal,
some narrow minded still dare to ask me why would I listen to a meaningless noise.. Unbelievable!!!
(((And regardless of the fact that even Black Metal music is so not a "noise"..
but let's face it, at this point, i know that no matter what i say or what i describe, some are simply cursed to live with their narrow minds for life..
and the truth is i don't even give a bloody damn
for it's something beyond their small minds..
so if it still doesn't make sence to u!! Then it's a problem of retardation!!! Trust me !!!
