Wicked Posted September 21, 2010 Report Share Posted September 21, 2010 I haven't posted here in four years or something...so hey, I guess. I had an interesting moment the other day. I have a bunch of burnt CD's with OCRemix material on them. I've listened to them a hundred times while on the road and put many of my friends through them, as well. I recently found a couple new bands while listening to Last.FM and one of them was called Delain, a European metal band with full orchestra. The genre is probably called symphonic metal or something. One of my friends was listening to them for the first time in my car, a song called "Frozen" and he stops and asks, "Is this video game music?" "No, bro, it's a band called Delain." That's when I realized it DID sound a hell of a lot like some of the stuff I've listened to on OCRemix. In fact, I'd venture a guess and say if it hadn't been for my listening to the material that's come out over the years on OCRemix, I may not have even liked Delain at all when I heard them. When I first heard stuff on here, I was still in an everything metal mode. No rap, no country, no wussy stuff. Listening to stuff on here, though, orchestra and electronica mixes of awesome games sure as hell opened up my mind as time went by. So I'm curious, did others have the same type of experience? What kind of bands are you listening to now that you weren't before because of OCRemix? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
