@darkrising6: Wow, those are a lot!!! I'll listen to them all, but give me some time pls~
Yay!! I'm glad you liked (most of) my stuff. I get that most of those probs weren't your requested style, exactly.
AND THE NATIONAL JUST HAS AMAZING VOCALS IKR??? I JUST REALLY LIKE DEEP VOICES. <3 Not only on men, but maaaaaaaaan his voice. It's also that the songs are super calm and great for sleep/realxing also kinda inspire me to do the writing stuff? I think The National and my ears are drift compatible.
Oh! Yeah, Pacific Rim! It's a pretty good movie about giant robots punching giant monsters. The music is pretty great, too; listen to the Main Theme; there's also an Extended version if you really like it, and an Epic Rock cover. 2500 Tons of Awesome is the true title of another track. The Breach; Cancelling The Apocalypse; Mako (they are all instrumental, expect from Mako which doesn't have the rock/dynamic feel of the others, it's just choir oohs and an amazing crescendo of beautfiul, outlandish music.) The movie is PG13, I think. If you haven't watched it, perhaps you should check out the trailer first.
OK based on the stuff I suggested the first time:
More on the National; Runaway; Demons; but now that you know them you can check them out on your own ofc~
To Kill a King (idk if you're going to like them, they kinda remind me of the National); They've done some stuff with Bastille (Bloody Shirt; Falling), but I assume you already know Bastille. Songs I know about tKaK include Fictional State; I Work Nights and You Work Days.
Hm, there's this thing Bastille have done with Lana del Ray's Blue Jeans. Requiem for Blue Jeans. If anything, it's very cool because it changes the pronouns to make the original song from the man's POV. Though I'm not the biggest Lana fan out there, both songs are pretty cool, especially in comparsion!
Talking Heads are super great, I love them. Other songs by then include Once in a Lifetime, Nothing but Flowers, Give Me Back My Name, but I'm not sure if you'll like them (why I didn't suggest them in the first place). Psycho Killer seems to be getting played a lot lately, and people really like it, but it's a pity so few look further into their music, because I seriously love those guys.
Hm, I don't have anything like Imagine Dragons, at least, nothing you probably don't already know. The recommended songs from the new album are my favorite, and ai, you don't have to listen to it becaue I said so, take your time. Those are the only Poets of the Fall and Les Frictions songs I know, I swear.
Some Bands and Artists I Think You'll Like:
Band of Skulls; The Devil Takes Care of his Own; Nightmares; Death by Diamonds and Pearls (I think you'll like them)
Nico Vega; UGH THEY ARE AMAZING THEIR VOCALIST HAS A VOICE POWERFUL ENOUGH TO START A REVOLUTION. Beast; Queen of Hearts; Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) cover; Fury oh Fury; Gravity
Silversun Pickups; Future Foe Scenarios; Comeback Kid; The Royal We
Florence and the Machine. Do you know her already? She has some pretty well known songs. Seven Devils; Shake it Out; Never Let Me Go; Girl With One Eye (WARNING! THIS SONG IS DARK/INAPPROPRIATE CONTENT! (no language, just content) PG13 for your viewing pleasure!)
Rage Agianst the Machine; Killing in the Name of; Born of a Broken Man
Shinedown; What a Shame; I'll Follow You; Diamond Eyes (this song is my new love *D); Breaking Inside
The Main - My Heroine (I love this song why even)
Within Temptation (they're symphonic metal). Dark Wings; Somewhere; Stand My Ground; Lost
-In other words:
I didn't listen to any of your suggestions yet expect from hi i'm case, and I have to say, wow, I liked their work! I'm currently listening to more of their music, but I'm not sure if I know stuff like them- just *shrugs* they remind me of things but I can't exactly put my finger around it?
Yes, Poets of the Fall are indeed Finnish. I didn't know it for a while, but I'm glad you like them! Do you already know Lordi? They won Eurovision 2006 with Hard Rock Hallelujah. And they're metal. Also Finnish. Please check them out.
Bruce Dickinson used to be the lead singer from Iron Maiden, which is Heavy Metal. I only know a few songs by them which my friend likes, like Seventh Son of a Seventh Son. Also Brave New World, which is inspired by the book of the same name, which I do love. But yeah I don't really like IM or heavy metal all that much.
GERMAN SONGS FOR Z:
Scorpions are a German band, and they have work in German. Action; Wenn es Richtig Losgeht (those are German songs; there others, too. The majority of their work is in Engish, and you probaly already know Wind of Change. Still Loving You; The Best Is Yet To Come; SLY; Always Somewhere. Also I dont really care about them personally, but some songs are kinda cool.)
Now all due seriousness I don't even know anything else in German. Expect for songs from the anime. And that means just SnK soundtracks.
From Shingeki no Kyojin (aka a Japanese composer and Japanese performers writing/singing in German. Still awesome.)
Bauklötze and the Armored Titan Theme - Kobayashi Mika IST DAS DER ZERSTÖRER guess my ringtone.
So Ist Es Immer - from an OVA I haven't watched
Blumenkranz from Kill la Kill !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Eeeeep, this anime is kinda mature! But the song itself is pretty safe, and in German none the less.
Anyway both the KlK and SnK soundrtacks were composed by Hiroyuki Sawano and yeah the pronounciation is not exactly spot on because the performers are not native German speakers.
(artist first, followed by track name. Copy and paste to make it easier for you):
Τρύπες - Δεν χωράς πουθενά: "You don't fit anywhere"; Καινούρια Ζάλη: "New Dizyness"; Χάρτινο Τσίρκο (Paper Circus) (the speaking voices at the begging say "Life is too short to be sad, my baby", and then the little kid's voice says "Life is long, don't turn it into a carnival" as in, don't make it a mess). The band's name is Tripes/holes.
Spitfire - Lead me on: they're metal, and the song's in English, but you can check them out further. It's the only song I know of them.
Ενδελέχεια - Βουτιά απο ψηλά: "Dive from Above", idk what the band's name translates into English, exactly.
Μάλαμας, Ιωαννίδης - Γιατί Δεν Έρχεσαι Ποτέ Όταν Σε Θέλω "Why d'you never come when I need you" it's kinda a rock ballad of shorts.
Νίκος Μερτζανος - Στάσου Λίγο (Stay a While). There's also a cover by Prestige (???) it's great
Αγγελάκας - Σιγά Μην Κλάψω (Something like "As If I'd Cry" or "There's no Way I'll Cry". Kinda.) it's pretty well known
Κίτρινα Ποδήλατα - Άμα τα Πάρω (Yellow Bicycles. Lit. "If I take them". It's a phrase for If I get mad/if I see read/once I'm mad... it's about getting angry. yeah it's rock)
Also almost all the rock songs have a bit of language, but haha you probably won't mind unless you speak Greek... but if you're Greek you probs already know them *is lame and doesn't even know all that much of Greek music*
Also I love, love, love The Hunchback of Notre Dame's Soundtrack in the Greek dub; The villain's song, God Help The Outcasts, Out There. Amazing, all of them
Disney and animated movies are great because of all the dubs they get, it's like... one thing people's childhoods from almost all over the world have in common. But like, IN DIFFERENT LANGUAGES <3
Stromae (Ta Fête, Tous les Mêmes, Papaoutai, Alors on Danse). He may not be your requested genres; but son, does he have lyrics. Also cool videoclips with subtitile options. A bit on the mature side (mostly the content of the songs, not the videos that much), but please check them out, if you can. It's also great language practice, since you already speak a bit of French, ne c'est pas?
Indila - Derniera Danse. Pretty well known. You'll probs like it.
Ha, looks like a found a French rock band! They're called Mozart: L'Opera Rock, and songs by them include La Chanson de l'aubergiste and Le Bien Qui Fait Mal
Dionysos - La Mécanique du Coeur. If you find the a cappéla trio cover, give it a listen, too.
Coeur du Pirate - Fondu au Noir
Vienna Teng; Green Island Serenade; Ru Guo (If). She's Taiwanese American and has mostly music in Engish, which is all very amazing, she's got to be my favorite female vocalist.
I seriously only know anime openings (song name/artist)
Goya no Machinawase - Hello Sleepwalkers
Kakusei Heroism - An Cafe
Howling - Audiosurf
...and I haven't even watched all that much anime. Sorry, friend, those are the most rock stuff out of what i know.
Piano Man - Mamamoo
This Love - Shinwha (both kpop)
Sorry they're too many, but I think that's all for now. Take your time listening to them, I hope I got something right~
Aaaaaaaaaaand thanks for the Gemini season happiness wish!!! And for reminding me it's Cancer time already, so many of my friends have their birthdays during this zodiac season! (read: so many of my friends are lame.)
