Progmetal and Classical?

  • Progmetal and Classical?

    These two are similar, if by progressive metal you mean the stuff with structure like Gorguts - Obscura. They both use narrative composition with an emphasis on melodic motif development.

    As this thread

    indicates, others are seeing the similarity. The progressive rock of the 1970s borrowed heavily from classical music, and tried to fit it to the "new" jazz/rock technique.

    Are any other metalheads out there classical listeners?

    yep... "now playing": Johann Sebastian Bach – (BWV 36 Schwingt Freudig euch empor) Aria: Auch mit gedämpften, schwachen Stimmen...
    i would be surprised if there weren't a lot more of us! :)

  • I hope so. The two art forms go well together, as oddly does orthodox black metal...

    I generally don't like classical music except for a few romantic (Brahms, Berlioz, Debussy, Wagner) and neoromantic composers (Shore, Zimmer, Webber) Passed that classical music is just too rigid and structured, and lacks any significant emotion.

    I also enjoy the musical philosophies of avant-garde composers like John Cage and Schoenburg.

  • yes.

    but as someone previously stated it varies. I love canon for example, and i think that classic music is only good when it has some emotion or is exciting, i dont think it has to be slow or boring like much of it is (imo)

  • Yes, I am!
    Don't know why, but Prog and Classical listening combines well, especially the romantic area of 'Claiical' muisc. ('The Moldau' from Smetana, Dvorak's 9th, Beethoven's 9th, Mahler... The greates instrumental works, indeed :D )

  • Yes! Both lover of (prog)metal and (contemporary) classical music. :)
