Upon review of Xelandos Nafshir's posts I have come to the conclusion that he is a robot.
...really though, do you actually think you'd be ridiculed for video game music on a pixel art forum?

My current #1 favourite band is MGMT. I'm also diggin' Justice.

Various other favourites include:
Lupe Fiasco
Jimi Hendrix
The Strokes
The White Stripes
Interpol
Led Zeppelin
N.E.R.D.
Gorillaz
Muse
The Hives
The Flaming Lips
Kings Of Leon
Daft Punk

and so on and so forth.
thanks Dogmeat!

People will ridicule anything if they think they can get away with it. Thankfully, a person doesn't get away with it very often without bringing negative attention to themselves. Sharing personal information is even worse.

Actually, if you had just posted the game music instead of saying you're afraid to get ridiculed, you would have been less ridiculed then you are now.

everyone is entitled to their own musical preferences, seems a little immature to not post because your afraid of possible confrontation.  Plus you bring a lot of negative attention to yourself.

now please don't derail this anymore.


I started listening to a guy called Cas Haley, who was on America's Got Talent.  check it out:

I got back from paganfest last night, and i'm still hurting from it.

The bands that played were all completely awesome.
VIKING METAL!

The opening act Was ELUVEITIE (say it - EL-OH-VAY-TEE):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtdvoKpLevc
Let it be known that they have the goddamn craziest flute player of al time. Everybody in this band is at least 6 feet tall. Even the chick.

Coming directly after them, The more more melodic TYR.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97lxvrKC-nI (Orumun Langi. It's in faroese so don't try to understand it.)
Now everybody in tTHIS band was like Nine feet tall. I exaggerate but they're some huge dudes and would NOT want to have to meet them in a back alley. Anyone who says these guys suck should probably just go jump off a cliff.

Third in the lineup was TURISAS
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrQxr-8neyo (BATTLE METAL!)
These guys stole the entire show. The frontman is a real enterainer, and they know how to get the crowd to move.
Plus to go up on stage in war paint and leather and fur armor which is ten kinds of awesome.
Unlike the previous two bands these folks were actually kind of tiny and it was great.

THe Headlining act - ENSIFERUM
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cs8giIGt1jE
At this point i was pretty well smashed. NOt alcohol, but after three hours of vikings smashing your face in, ensiferum was almost too much for me.
Back with the giant norsemen. The lead singer, i swear does not age. he looked like an overgrown 15 year old boy.

I still hurt from the experience. I did get to see some pretentious scenester type kid git his ass beat by a bunch of beardly monsters in a mosh pit that had formed. Sorry, but you don't try to be fashionable in an environment that is populated by overweight muscleheads with a norse fixation. you're pretty much asking to be tossed unceremoniously about, and you ESPECIALLY don't try to do the OMG HARDK0R3" bullshit dnacing when everyone is out for blood. it's just foolish. But he got what he had comin'.

I just listened to the self-titled Woven Hand today. Pretty cool stuff!
Good to know at least somebody is listening to my prattling on :)

well, once I've used to be really orthodox when it came to music in general and my musical tastes were well-established. this was when I was listening to Heavy Metal. however, it became boring. then I went through pretty much everything, broadening my musical tastes to be large in scope. I ain't restricting myself to any particular genre.

anyway, now I'm reviving my old memories with The Crystal Method. also recently, I got enchanted by some light chilling rock in the form of MGMT -- yes, it's *just* indie, but those guys are good.

I heard The Offspring on the radio today in my art class, and almost punctured the eye on my sculpture because they've got a new song out. A few years ago they were all I would listen to.  ::)

Album comes out on June 17th!

www.offspring.com - you can download one of their new songs, Hammerhead.

I like a lot of different, weird music.

BOREDOMS -- A marvelous fusion of tribal drumming and sounds that you'd swear were made by an alien spacecraft traveling through the minds of the gods.  "Super Going" from the album "Super ae" is a great song to check out, as is the entirety of the album "Vision Creation Newsun"


the rest are in no particular order

GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS -- Thoughtful songs sung by a haunting voice with a backing band of folk musicians.  Their albums are recorded in resonant natural spaces, such as a grain silo or an old town hall, creating a rich atmosphere.  The songs are all great, with masterful lyrics.

PANDA BEAR -- His "Person Pitch" album is like a lesson in chilling out.  A great example of how to use samples so that the end result doesn't sound too sampled.  And his heavily reverb'd and multi-tracked beach-boys-esque voice adds to the chill-factor.

YES -- Some of their songs are pretty cheesy but on the whole Yes is a group of remarkable musicians.  The compositions are all multi-layered, richly detailed and completely engrossing.  Great music to get lost in.

CHRISTOPHER WILLITS -- Collages of sound are made by Willits by slicing up guitar tracks and re-arranging them into sparkling melodies in which the clips of sound where the tracks are cut become tiny flecks of rhythmic percussion.  Then he layers on breathy vocals with electric harmonies, smooth syrupy horns and tight drumming to create music that is sugary like candy or silky like milk.

ERIC WHITACRE -- Speaking of electric harmonies, if you want to see Jesus's eyes, go listen to "Lux Aurumque" from the "Cloudburst" album.  So many notes are stacked on top of one another in Whitacre's a cappela choral works that each note blends into the next until it is like the sonic equivalent of a sunbeam that can be split into a spectrum of colors.  So amazing are these chords that they are commonly referred to as "Whitacre chords".

VALGEIR SIGURDSSON -- Bjork's producer has an album out called "Ekvilibrium" and on it is some amazing music.  "Focal Point" has sounds that almost remind you of something you heard once, but most of them sound like the sonic discharges of a machine made out of glass and polished marble.  "Equilibrium is Restored", which puts the listener into an immediate state of calm, sounds like a children's toy falling down a set of stairs in an underwater house.  "Before Nine" includes some of the most heart-wrenching cello music imaginable, and "Kin" makes you feel both intangible and infinite.

Upon review of Xelandos Nafshir's posts I have come to the conclusion that he is a robot.

You beat me to it.

I started listening to a guy called Cas Haley, who was on America's Got Talent.  check it out:

http://youtube.com/watch?v=yuqjYeXBLJE

better than sting imo.

"America's Got Talent" was probably the only sort of reality/stage performance/audition show I ever actually bothered watching, and yes, Cas Haley is awesome. Although that ventriloquist still deserved to win.

I heard The Offspring on the radio today in my art class, and almost punctured the eye on my sculpture because they've got a new song out. A few years ago they were all I would listen to.  ::)

I never really payed much attention to them back when they were really big, but one of my favourite radio stations started playing the Offspring on a regular basis a little while ago (mostly "Come Out and Play") and I'm starting to wonder why I didn't listen to them more before.


Does anyone here listen to Focus? They're pretty awesome.

Do tell what you thought of the stuff once you've let it sunk in.
Well, I listened to 82.2% of the Sieges Even album, it seems about as far as it's gonna get. :( Besides the jumpiness due to incompletion it's super, really inspiring stuff. Also I take back my comment regarding Spiral Architect's vocals, I was just being a dumbass. Fountainhead and Conjuring Collapse are the best.

Also I picked up a few others since my last post, Cynic, Demilich, Athiest, Gorguts, Wintersun, couple others.

Wintersun aren't up to the rest of that lineup you mentioned.

If you need the last two tracks of the Sieges Even record uploaded I can give them to you. It's a shame to not listen to 'Straggler from Atlantis' as it is probably the most epic and emotional track on the record. Yes, epic, emotional technothrash. Worth it.

Cynic are widely celebrated for 'Focus', and I like it alright too. Perhaps you'd do well to check out their demos too.
Demilich are godly.
Atheist, especially 'Unquestionable Presence' rip.
Gorguts, be sure to withstand the weirdness of 'Obscura', it's worth it.

First album I heard from them actually. I'm already into that sort of thing but it's refreshing to hear it in a metal context.

EDIT: Had a chance to listen to Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace by The Offspring. Some really great songs on there, especially "You're Gonna Go Far, Kid", "Hammerhead", "Kristy, Are You Doing Okay?", and "Shit is vucked Up" which are my favorites.

I recently saw em live aswell, they're really awesome.
Also been listening alot more Daft Punk lately.
I've actually been trying to make some House and Electro myself. And some things sound pretty alright if ye ask me. :D.

My playlist now is mostly Sigh (Imaginary Sonicscapes) and Holy Terror (Mind Wars, Terror and Submission). Also a lot of okay death metal like Pestilence, Bolt Thrower, etc. And I've been listening to Obscura lots and it gets better every listen. :hehe: Been hunting for more like it to no avail.

Excellent on Sigh and Holy Terror. Bolt Thrower are a lot more than just mediocre for me. They're one of the best. Pestilence are second-rate at best. I am glad to see your tastes grow in the right directions though. The esoteric Heavy Metal has much to offer you.

I'm not a fan of "real music". That is, I hate the human voice as an instrument. Video game music is my thing. Not giving any specifics because I don't like being ridiculed.

Obscura ain't Gorguts' best album imo. they're probably the coolest thing to come out of quebec though. Luc Lemar's new band 'Negativa' is really bad also which I kind of expected.
artists im listening to right now are Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart, Allan Holdsworth, Al Di Meola, and George Duke.
it might be a one shot deal

Negativa are pretty excellent. Obscura is better than 'From Wisdom to Hate' which is pretty great and quite better than the first two Roadrunner Generic Death Metal Also-rans. Naturally, the best thing out of Quebec was and forever will be, Voivod.

alright. i don't listen to or like a lot of metal. i've seen voivod on much music and shit and didnt see what stood out aboot them.
i dont see how negativa has anything going for it without any memorable songs. the idea of them being avant-garde is laughable

If you don't listen to or like a lot of metal then I guess we won't speak the same language as I love Heavy Metal above almost all. It's certainly up there with cute kittens, barbarians and robots for me. It's understandable that you don't get Voivod, though, they're not an easy band to get. And Negativa, as well as Gorguts are not meant to be initially catchy so I don't know what you were searching for there. These things reward deeper listens.

If you don't listen to or like a lot of metal then I guess we won't speak the same language as I love Heavy Metal above almost all. It's certainly up there with cute kittens, barbarians and robots for me. It's understandable that you don't get Voivod, though, they're not an easy band to get. And Negativa, as well as Gorguts are not meant to be initially catchy so I don't know what you were searching for there. These things reward deeper listens.
i liked and played technical death metal in high school and i dont think its fair to assume i dont "get" negativa just because i found it unenjoyable.
i think all music serves an important perpose because there's people who wanna hear that stuff. as for me i like orchestral music.

king diamond is probably my favourite heavy metal band though. the entertainment value of a 40 year old guy singing in falsetto aboot ghosts is immeasurable.

i also like that jingle bells parody aboot batman
it might be a one shot deal

Yeah it's pretty clear for me that you and I won't understand each other if the way you enjoy King Diamond is through irony. Negativa aren't technical death metal so it's understandable that if you approach them from that point of view they will not deliver.

Talkin bout anime, I've been listening to the Bleach ost a bit.
When you watch it you often don't notice much of it, I never realised how good this soundtrack is.
I know probably 95% of you hate bleach, but that doesn't have to mean you'll find the music bad :)

Recently started listening to Tool. Me like.

Yes.

My top 5 (in no particular order)

Tool
A Perfect Circle (check out the album "Thirteenth Step")
Modest Mouse
The Police
R.E.M.

as you can see I do not listen to any particular genre, but anything that sounds good I will listen to. :D

I guess I'll list mine, too, since I see these absent from the list (most of 'em, at least.)
Marvin Gaye -Beautiful Song. 'nuff said.
Barry White -This is, in my honest opinion, the best song ever recorded.
The Isley Brothers -I can't imagine how many of us were conceived to this song, but I guarantee my children will be.
Teddy Pendergrass -I played this at work once over the speaker system, since I always make mixes of great soul music to play at the restaurant I'm manager at, and I was shocked at the lyrics (I had just got the album that day) but I enjoyed it. Surprisingly, nobody asked me to turn it off.

Michael Jackson -If you don't like the "Thriller" album, you must be deaf. Actually, even deaf people could enjoy Michael Jackson, so you must just not like good music.

GZA -NSFW. The Wu-Tang only managed to record one decent album (36 Chambers), and to be honest, I prefer GZA's album "Liquid Swords." The whole album is solid, and eventually led me to see the movie "Shogun Assassin." See that movie. See it.
Kool Keith -NSFW, but I recommend listening to this album at some point, if not for the great rapping, simply for the fact that Kool Keith is the most outrageous rapper ever. If you don't believe me, check out the lyrics: Once again, NSFW
Clipse -Also NSFW. I don't listen to mainstream rap that much, but I couldn't pass up Clipse. They didn't achieve much commercial success, but I think they're the best rap group ever. You'd think that hearing songs about selling cocaine, wearing cool shoes, and drinking kool-aid would get old, but they dont.
Lil Wayne -NSFW. I think that if Lil Wayne sat in a recording booth for a year, and recorded twenty songs every day, maybe 10 of them in total would be decent. Lil Wayne is really the only mainstream rapper that I listen to. If you want to listen to Lil Wayne, I only reccomend getting The Drought 3 (a mixtape, free online) and The Carter III (His newest album, surprisingly decent. Check out "A Millie" if you have subs.)
A Tribe Called Quest -NSFW. Awesome album, awesome song. I still haven't figured out why Q-tip decided to just repeat his first verse instead of making a second one, but whatever. Still a great song, and a great message.

The Presidents of the United States of America -I'm sure you've all heard this song. This whole album (self-titled) is amazing, seriously. If you like this song, I recommend getting the entire album, it's just as good.
Primus -Oh jeez, Primus. This is one of my favorite songs by them. In middle school, I bought all of their albums, and I love every one. As far as I remember this is SFW, but if you don't wanna risk it, I'd wait, because I'm not 100% on that. Oh, and there will never be a better bassist than Les Claypool.

El Guincho -I'm not a big fan of any Indie music, but El Guincho is awesome. My friend, who likes Animal Collective, and Sonic Youth, and basically anyone who performed at the Pitchfork Music Festival, described El Guinch is the spanish Animal Collective. I think this is just one guy who has random Latin percussion instruments and a sampler, and manages to make albums. It's relaxing to listen to.

That's about all I can think of. I'll edit accordingly, but whatever.

I just finished listening to Clawjob's Space Crackers. It was wonderful. :) I recommend it to everyone who loves a good rock opera. And everyone who likes the guttural chanting of flesh devouring aliens backed up by high velocity metal~  :hehe:

I was recently exposed to Strapping young lad and various devin townsend solo projects.
I have to say, the skulleted crusader is my personal hero for life.

This, in particular stood way the hell out in the awesomeness department.

go buy this fucking album. right now. I really cannot stress how awesome it is.

Anyone else think mr townsend looks a bit like benjamin franklin?
