While Magma might not be Gojira's best album, it's still pretty dope in my opinion; it feels like they figured out what they want to do with their music and Magma's just a transition album. There's also the emotional aspect of the album as Joe and Mario's mother passed away while they were working on it.
I'm not too big into power metal, but there is a couple bands that I listen to.Nice thread you guys have here.
I'm not that big of a metalhead, and I would love to remedy that. Do you guys know any good bands to expand my playlist?
I usually listen to Alestorm, Gloryhammer, Ghost, Amaranthe, and Seikima 2, so anything around those genres would be nice.
Thanks for the suggestions! These are all real great tunes!I'm not too big into power metal, but there is a couple bands that I listen to.
My go to songs are Lady of Winter (starting song), Masque of the Red Death (14:11), and In Dark Places (18:26). A good album, a bit cheesy at times especially with the power ballad Painted Skies.
Any song will do off this album, it's one of my favorites.
As for Ghost, maybe the King Diamond/Mercyful Fate stuff might work, but it might be an acquired taste in comparison to Ghost due to King Diamond's use of falsetto.
If Crimson Glory sounds good you could check out Helloween, especially the Kai Hansen years in the 80's if you like the Crimson Glory voice. That rolls over into Gamma Ray, Hansen's later band and tons of other things. Find an artist you like and start tracing who they've collaborated with or toured with and stay away from Angra.Thanks for the suggestions! These are all real great tunes!
I know the post is ~18 months old but requesting that Crimson be played next at parties or bars used to be a fun gag.Edge of Sanity - Crimson
