Hi there! I've been a member of these boards only for a bit, and just joined a remix project. I wanted to ask a favor on this board as I'm having a hard time decide what my sort of side-project band "Immortal Aria"'s genre actually is. The big genre is Classical, then most would call us classical crossover. However we don't release albums full of covers, the album is often a concept, and we hire vocalists from around the globe so the band itself can't really show up in person. http://immortalaria.bandcamp.com (You can stream free) If anyone could take a listen and tell me what band/arist does this music sound like? Who's the first that pops in your head? Here's a breakdown of the track "styles". The album itself is based on the Phantom of the Opera story. A very niche story at that. Some of you may enjoy this, or may not. 1. Orphan in Winter - Orchestral and focused on piano 2. That Summer by the Sea - female vocal (broadway like), orchestral 3. The Bleeding Rose - female vocal (Classical), orchestral, solo violin 4. Waltz with Death - Orchestral, dark, pipe organ, 3/4 time sig 5. In the Mirror - Opera Male Vocal, heavy brass, epic, orchestral 6. Legacy of Daae - Piano/Orchestral, ballad 7. Firelight Through Diamonds - Pop female vocal with strings, heavy staccato strings, pop'ish 8. Chanson de l'Ange - Opera female, orchestral, ambient, huge crescendo 9. Worlds Apart Female/Male broadway-style duet, rock elements (but with drop tuning), solo metal guitar, heavy orchestral, pop-feeling 10. Crimson Petals - solo cello and solo violin, sad, ambient Note to mods: This seemed like the only spot to place this. It's not an advertisement for original music, and not a remix.
I've been looking into a lot of alternative music options lately, like Electro Swing and TechnOpera, but one thing really started bothering me. Is there a name for using only ingame sound files to make a song? Examples: "Red Team Wants to Battle" "Battlebeats - battlefield song" There are lots of things out there, which would potentially include the items such as the "Windows Noises" song, but does this have a category name yet? I've probably overlooked the name if there is one, but it doesn't seem to be an easy thing to search up, as I'm probably ignorant of a keyword or somesuch. You could technically call it "sampling" but that feels wrong as the whole song is comprised of this, as Sampling is the action used to make the song, but is it the genre as well?
We all know that the Castlevania's musicical roots can be traced back to classical, romantic or possibly even baroque roots but can still easily be mixed into a metal sound. But what genre of metal would you most likely classify the Megaman X series? Other then generic metal the only thing I can think even kind of resembles MMX is Children of Bodom's Powermetal. The X series is just so upbeat that I think it's the upbeatness is what seperates it from most other metal genres. That and obviously being composed by several people at most and not full blown bands. The above videos lyrics aren't necessarily upbeat but the instruments themselves definitely are. I feel like there are probably japanese bands that are inspired by either the X or Castlevania series that I don't know of. Perhaps synthmetal? Sorry if this topic doesn't belong here but I didn't know where else to put it.
