I've been quite enjoying working on this webpage. In particular, I have been enjoying working while listening to the Goth Metal stations on the internet I found through Winamp.Ya know, ya just don't hear this stuff on broadcast radio around here. Hehehe, I suspect it has influenced a lot of the look of the site.
The Goth Metal formula seems pretty straightforward. Start with a couple of Scändinavian chicks wailing away about a Presence on the Møør over some spooky church chords. Then a guy with a strong German accent sings about something from the Lord of The Rings I think. Finaly the drums and guitars come crashing in signaling ultimate DOOM.
Hehehe, don't get me wrong I really like this style and am going to have to look into the scene and pick up some albums. One of the things I really like about this genre is the amount of drama. I am a big Metal fan, but I just don't get a lot of what's popular now. Tunes start off with a nonstop double-bass, the singer has the mike half-way down his throat, and the guitar player is flogging his excessivly detuned guitar with a blunt instrument.
I'am all for dissonance but ya need a little balance too.
