    The Singers' Topic!

    Yeah, it is for singers, but there was a discussion (might have been page three and onwards) about classifying female and male singers. Thought it was interesting to read about as someone who is a bit of a noob to singing in general

    The Singers' Topic!

    This thread seems a bit dead so I thought I'd try to revive it. I don't know much about singing myself so I'm wondering where you would place the following singers: Anna Murphy (ex-Eluveitie) Fabienne Enri (Eluveitie) Helena Michaelson (Imperia) She reminds me a lot of Floor Jansen. Is she also a dramatic? Catherine Paulsen (ex-Trail of Tears) Saw her listed as spinto previously, but how? Nele Messerschmidt (Elvellon) Chiara Malvestiti (Crysalys) Elize Ryd (Amaranthe) Sabine Edelsbacher (Edenbridge)

    Within Temptation II

    I really wish Iron Maiden were bringing Within Temptation to Australia in their tour next year : ( Instead we get Killswitch Engage. Will WT ever play in Australia? I'm losing hope.

    Anette Olzon (2º part)

    Yeah, the lyrics in Get Out of My Head are pretty bad. "Get out of my bed..." Err cringy much?

    It's a very catchy album! A lot of the songs do sound quite similar in terms of melody and such, but it's so catchy.

    Leaves' Eyes

    I do like the new song. It is catchy and simple. Would've been so much better with a different vocalist though. Unfortunately, Elina just isn't very charismatic. Her vocals are boring. There's no emotion in them at all. I didn't like her vocals in her other band either. Does Elina write any of the music or lyrics?

    Lacuna Coil

    Already released here. Wow! I really enjoyed this album, moreso than Delerium. Although I'm still not a fan of their ballad-type songs. They're forgettable to me. Favourites Sword of Anger, Layers of Time, Reckless, Now or Never, Under the Surface and Save Me. Anima Nera was a nice intro too.

    I listened to the original version. Then compared it to the remastered version. Wow. What a difference! Design Your Universe has just become my favourite album again out of Epica's discography. Songs sound clearer. More powerful. The choir sounds better too.
  9. AquilaTempestas


    When I saw Epica, no one moved lol. People were friendly. Though to be fair I live in Australia and I saw them in a small venue in Brisbane.

    Charlotte does the growls in this song. Martijn replied to a comment on Youtube and said she did them.

    Valcata — New Symphonic Metal Opera

    Didn't like 3-2-1 at first. But I've listened to it a few more times now and it's grown on me a lot! Looking forward to the rest of the album!
  12. AquilaTempestas


    Ah okay! Awesome. I'll start with those albums and see how it goes. Thanks! Oh yeah, I've heard the album Arcana mentioned a fair bit. I'll try that one too. Thanks!

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    That is correct!

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    I've cut out the last narration in Silent Masquerade. Much better to listen to now!

    Can anyone point me in the direction of a good starting point for Edenbridge? I've only listened to Shadowplay, Wild Chase and Higher.
