Band Recommendation [24 Feb 2005|07:41am]

Not sure if anyone has ever heard of the band, but they are definitely fit for this forum.

It's a band out of Europe (which would explain if no one has ever heard of them) called Nightwish. If you'd like an accurate description of the type of music they do (and not actually hear their masterpieces), just try to imagine what Lacuna Coil would sound like if Apocalyptica were backing them up.

I dunno what anyone's downloading ethics are (personally, if I like the songs enough, I'll buy the album), but Amazon has the majority of their albums for a reasonable $13.99 and a few songs to give you a feel for the band would probably be "The Siren" or "Dark Chest of Wonders" from their newest album (circa October 5, 2004) "Once".

Thought I'd share the wealth. Any other bands out there based in Europe that you like but haven't really reached mainstream in the Americas?

New to the community [27 Sep 2004|03:29pm]


My name is Jerad Bailey and I'm an avid fan of both rock (Metallica, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and some of the newer groups as well) and classical music. Hopefully I'll be able to make some new friends and learn some new things here.

Hey guys! I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaack! I thought y'all would enjoy this. Last October, my friend and I were into writing Evanescence band parodies. This one is entitles "Oboe" after the song "Hello." It talks about the pains every oboist feels when their reeds just suck.


Emerald reeds break, again,
That piece of crap split, again,
Has no one told you it's not playing, oboe
Let me see, I think it's only the reed, oboe

I tried a new reed, but yet
This one sounds worse, but yet
Don't try to fix it it's not broken, oboe,
It's supposed to sound like a duck died, don't cry

(instrumental break)

Suddenly I know it's not working! Oboe!
Oh god why!
It was working yesterday!

(Lyrics by Emily Monahan)

Tada! Hope you guys liked it! I have more parodies to come!

not really music related, but it works :)

What's your favorite pickup line ... doesn't have to be one you've used, but just your favorite?

Do you need an icecube...cause you're looking pretty hot.

Well this is my first post on the community, and the only real ochestrated "Rock" band I like it Murder By Death. If you like classical, and/or Indie/Emo. You rould love them. There amazing. They have a very talented Celloist, with an amazing pianist, and everything else a regular Emo/Idie band would have. Very interesting to listen to.

My photobucket was recently broken into and all of my pictures were deleated. I had about 80 pictures in this accound and all of then were deleted for no apparent reason.

Be prepared photobucket users! If you can't get into your account for some reason, type in the password 'hahaha' and see if that works. Just wanted to let everyone know.

I like this - community devoted to music in general and Evanescence in particular - joy. I'm Rachel....high-school student sort of person and percussionist (drumline kicks brass...okay, instrument pride moment over). I saw Evanescence when they were in DC in February...it was an amazing show.

My name is Jamie and I play oboe and love Evanescence.

Whoa, it's good to get that off my chest.

Yeeah, so I'm friends with Emily. I'm cool. I love playing my oboe, but I love playing my clarinet more, sad to say.

And I'm currently being told to get off the computer, so..that's all for now.

[ mood | blah ]

Okay, well, I've joined. Obviously. XD
Right now I'm homeschooled, but when I was in public school I was in band for a few years. I play flute. 'Cause it's fun. :D wee. >.<; I still want to be first chair so bad. The highest I've ever been was 3rd chair, 2nd chair if Kayla or Tori were absent. XD haha. I knew how to play piano, but I stopped practicing and forgot. I'm trying to teach myself again. O.O; I'm learning guitar too... woot.
Yea. I'm here... talking about myself...
I'm weird.
If you've ever looked in my user info, my communities, you're probably confused if I'm an Evanescence fan or not. I'm a fan who likes to make fun of Amy. o.o; She annoys me sometime, well not always just her, how mainstream has made her the "only member of Evanescence". *twitch* Ok. I'm done. You guys are probably like, "Shut up. Now." XD So, okay, shutting up.
