    If by style of Rhapsody, you mean plain old power metal, then there are plenty of bands. If you mean the epic orchestral stuff, then there is really only Luca's solo stuff that compares, at least that I have found.

    Is Rhapsody similar to Children of Bodom?

    If you like Bodom, listen to some Norther, they sound just like them. Some other bands like Killswitch would be Lamb of God, and shadows fall

    Children of Bodom, Wintersun, Omnium Gatherum, Kalmah and Imperanon all sound very similar. The first two are my favourite Finnish bands.

    I'm not a Children of Bodom fan. I like Hatebreeder, but that's about it. Their new album is, according to one of my friends, designed to sell to their American audience, to which the American he was talking to agreed with. Clearly, that's where the money is now.

    Are there any good Scottish bands in the folk/metal genre WotW? After all everyone likes traditional Scottish music.

    Well, there's us. One of our songs:

    Ancient Land

    Pretty much all the Scottish metal bands I know of involve friends of mine. Most of them involve one friend in particular, the chap doing keys and vocals on that song. The genre is pretty unexposed here, it's rare we actually get any bands to play, though another of my friends has managed to organise a festival in our hometown.

    Rhapsody is more like overblown symphonic pompose powermetal. With a eunuch-sounding singer. Not my kind of thing.

    I don't like Bodom either. It sounds to me like the sole purpose of the songs is just to display the technical ability of the players - which is to say, it's interesting for a few minutes, from a curious musician's point of view, but gets old really quick.

    This is not to say technical skill is a bad thing, far from it. A good technique is needed to be able to play what you want. But that's all it is. A tool to accomplish something. Not an accomplishment in itself. I think too many bands these days, instead of actually writing good songs, just compete at how fast they can play scales up and down. Like it's not even music anymore, but gymnastics.

    Which is why I don't really like DragonForce any more. That's essentially all that their last two albums have been, to the point where most songs are pretty much indeterminable from the others in lots of places.


    *EDIT* A band I have been listening for a while that Cúchulainn might like is Tuatha de Danann, a Brazilian band with a Celtic folk theme. Very good, in my opinion.

    Thats a pretty good song. Your band should try to get onto one of the metal festivals in Belfast that are coming up.

    Its only a short ferry ride away.

    LMAO... Exactly ;)

    As a musician I can only agree.
    I know so many musicians that should rather have been in the olympics :grin:
    It's like the *image* is more important than the music they play :nono:
    I mean, does it really matter that much what clothes you wear on the stage ?
    (A lot of metal bands wear real ugly clothes IMO, just because of their *image*)

    /me close eyes and listen to Black Sabbath

    I don't listen to anything because of the way the artist looks - no, not even Enriqure. I wouldn't listen to him so much if I didn'tt genuinely like his music and not just his lickabili... err, looks. yeah,. looks.

    If you want ridiculousness in dress, look at GWAR. They come out on stage looking something like WoW's avatar, except with man thongs and guitars...

    And they have awful music anyways.

    Not for me. I have absolutely no idea what most of the musicians I listen to even look like as I have never seen most of them. On my iPod at the moment, I have people like James Blunt, Rooster, Green Day, KT Tunstall, and Hayley Westenra. Of those, Hayley Westenra is the only one I think I could identify if I saw them. I never watch music TV and don't buy CDs so I never get any opportunity to find out what they look like.

    I don't think it's too bad actually. I don't mind a band changing it's sound as long as they enjoy playing it. Believe me you can get really sick of playing your own stuff after a while.

    The problem with "Are You Dead Yet" is that it sounds exactly like the rest of their stuff. It was nothing unique, and after Bodom for many hours, "Are You Dead Yet" is boring.

    A profesional musician is more concerned about his *image* and what he looks like, than what kind of music he plays -
    That was my point, and to me that means, there must be something absolutely wrong :flaming:

    Daie, he got rid of the mole in 2004 for medical reasobns.

    Imo, it is admirable that he didn't get rid of it the moment he started making money; shows that he was not particularlty interested in looking pretty :D
