    What is your favorite band/genre?

    Since we have a music section, this question was BOUND to be asked!
    What is your favorite band and/or genre in music? If you can't decide on one band, just give a list! I am trying to expand my mind in music since I feel music is one of the most universal types of media (other than Outlaw Star) that can get people together. If you do have a specific answer, explain! I'll go first:

    My favorite band has to be, none other than:
    Coheed And Cambria

    Why you might ask? Well other than dishing out some serious guitar riffs in almost every song, the bands songs are actually based on a story that the lead singer, Claudio Sanchez, created. It's a sci-fi story called "The Amory Wars" and you can actually find his comics out in comic stores! But besides that, the band is modern, yet they create something that I feel, really hasn't been done before. They also have two guitars that are really sort of at war with one another, but still combine to make something unique. I can't quite explain it, so just watch the video below and you might see what I am getting at:


    Plus I got my comics/Vinyl/Action Figure signed by Claudio Sanchez himself at C2E2!

    Anywho, what are your favorites?

    Y'know, anybody who has had to put up with me for long is gonna be natch tired of me saying this again and again, but System of a Down. Good music, good lyrics, good philosophy. What could be better?

    RE: What is your favorite band/genre?

    One of my favourites is Boards of Canada. Some people think my music tastes are rather unusual, but hey, I simply like what I like. One of my favourite tracks is below. Maybe you'll like it.


    As for genre, it's hard to say. Generally falls under: instrumental, electronic, ambient, post-rock. And of course, soundtracks, including film/TV, anime, video game. Man, it's so hard to pick a true favourite.

    Gene: "I don't!"

    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    Hahaha, yeah it is hard to pick a certain one because there are a LOT of good bands/songs out there.

    I didn't say it was going to be an easy task to pick one but I always love to hear and read what people say is theres, it opens up more music to me; and to me, that is what makes people come together more.

    RE: What is your favorite band/genre?

    I like many styles of music. but electronic and symphonic is what brings me more up...
    how about a Phantasy Star Universe track,.. electronic VS Symphoy
    The game sucks and teh soundtrack really is nothing compared to the Online series. But this track really amazed me.

    RE: What is your favorite band/genre?

    My taste in music is strange. I love Slayer and Metallica yet I also find Blind Guardian good. Amon Amarth is my main favourite though. There is one band I hate, their song too. But damn is it catchy for all the wrong reasons.

    That band is this : c*nthunt 777 - Ventil

    And strangely enough, that alone ties with Amon Amarth. So in a perverse way I'd count that as my 2nd favourite band. No, I don't know how it works.

    As for Amon Amarth... Amon Amarth - Live for the Kill

    Their songs are all based off of Norse myth. That alone is enough to make me like it. The fact it sounds great (to me, atleast) is another thing.
    Fighting through Aliens, Robots, Insane sick people, demons, plants, dragons, fish, squids, jellyfish and more for the good of the forum!


    When I play a game, I usually want to see lethal amounts of death and destructive amounts of ruination.

    I listen to alot of different music, but if I had to pick a favorite... it would probably be Queen.

    Bohemian Rhapsody and Don't Stop Me Now are great songs, but I've always really liked this one in particular:

    I'm... not sure why. It's just awesome.

    I listen to a lot of rock, some types of metal, and quite a bit of techno. I also listen to a lot of gaming and anime OST's. I have a weakness for female singers. There voices are just amazing and they melt me into a helpless puddle haha. Some bands I really like are sirenia, lacuna coil, evanescence, flyleaf, paramore, pendulum, anberlin, system of a down, thrice, Deadmau5, and mirrored theory.

    RE: What is your favorite band/genre?

    My favorite genre = Soundtrack. I enjoy soundtracks because listening to one song within it can bring back numerous memories of the show that it came from. (e.g. when you listen to the song "Hiru No Tsuki", you may think of Outlaw Star and certain events that took place after or while Melfina was singing.)

    As for the songs, well I have multiple favorites including but not limited to:

    1.Title; A Whisper of the Flower Field
    Artist; Kenji Kawai
    Album; Vampire Princess Miyu TV OST
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UE6gM...eature=related

    2.Title; Moeru Ishi ni Natte [becoming a fiery stone]
    Artist; Youko Ueno
    Album; Haibane Renmei Image Album ~Sei naru Shoukei~
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8CsU0...eature=related

    3. Title; Gentle
    Album; Outlaw Star OST 1
