Just wondering ! Happy

Personally, I mostly enjoy doom metal, progressive metal and post-rock, although I enjoy other things too ! What do you enjoy the most?

Favorite band: Opeth ! No doubts there~

I listen to most kinds of music but prefer symphonic black metal. Favoriteband is Summoning heart Also classic music mixed with pop, aka Sarah Brightman. Soprano at it's best. Mixing these two together creates magic.

Cool ! Always nice to find fellow metalheads~ Happy

I was a soprano back when I was in choir in my music school~ I loved it and it is one of the things I trully miss about music school... I don't think I could go back to being a soprano even if I tried and went back to training xD I think my voice got a biiiit deeper than it was. Then again, it might just be lack of training Smile

Cool! I love Metal! Almost any kind, except trash but I can live with it when I'm clubbing. Smile

Cool to be a singer! The only thing I did music vise was playing the guitar. I'm pretty much tone deaf. My bf wont even let me sing in the shower, and he should know, being a musician. On the other hand, he did buy me a Singstar game. I have no idea where he's mind is. Laugh

Haha, both me and my boyfriend have music background~ We both learned music theory, sang in choirs and played an instrument ! We were in different schools (we didn't even know eachother back then !). I played the violin for about 8 years and he played the piano for way longer (16 years of his life or something ridiculous like that xD). I stopped playing for good, but he still plays the piano when he goes back to Portugal. But we both found other instruments soon enough: I play the bass and he plays the guitar ! It's fun to play together, although I don't have much time to practice at the moment xD

Rock music in general, with a sympathy for '60 and '70s rock in particular, as well as J(apanese)-rock. And recently steampunk (think Abney Park)

There's no rock quite like J-rock Wink

Steampunk music is in continuation of the steampunk movement; "what if the Victorians had access to our technology, what would they have invented?", just before the industrial revolution. Things are hand-made, mechanical (that's why gears are such a powerful element in steampunk, and often representing steampunk in people's minds), and unique instead of mass-made.

Letters are written and sent, rather than an e-mail typed. Clocks are hand-made, clothes are hand-made..

..I digress. Back to the music. It's mostly the instruments of the Victorian era, though modern versions of it are often used (such as the violin). Of course, there are variations, like industrial steampunk, gothic steampunk etc.

Themes used in Steampunk music are Victorian, usually plague drama, romantic drama, futuristic visions (of a future which never came to be, of course! Because steampunk sort of.. ..creates a timeline which, in our lives, did not exist.) and dark dreams. ..at least, as far as I can tell.

Hope that helps Poke Tounge

I knew about the steampunk scene and I find it quite fascinating, but I didn't know much about the music ! How interesting ! I must search more about it and listen to a few things (I admit, you nailed me there with the gothic and industrial steampunk music). YAY!

I remember seeing a booth on MCM Expo in London last year... it was magnificent ! There was a steampunk Darth Vader bust and loads of amazing things !

Uhmm a good band I'd suggest is Abney Park, I recently started listening to them and I'm totally smitten! I'd strongly recommend their song "Dear Ophelia"

..though I guess you can also find some steampunky elements in Emilie Autumn's songs.

Rap is my absolute favorite but rock music is up there as well.

I never know how to classify things...I guess I like rock mostly, but I also like J-pop (if I'm in the right mood for it).
