Apparently, so do I (Static-X, Marilyn Manson, hair metal of any variety [ even the bands including George Lynch and Paul Gilbert ], some metalcore, Linkin Park's first 3 albums, and Children of Bodom [ WTF?])
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.

I think the word you are looking for is transcribe.

And why exactly do you put metal heads in apostrophes when you refer to them as genuinely liking classical.



Because 'metal heads' make me lol irl.

Hmm, this brings me to a question...

What exactly is a Fugue I have read numerous explanations, but at times my brain has trouble comprehending some things.
#133
I've just ambled upstairs with an armful of classical CDs, which I've liberated from my dad's collection. Unfortunately, most of his classical music is on vinyl, and I've still not got a working record player yet.

Here's what I found appealing from his collection:
Schubert - Moments Musicaux, played by Jeno Jandó on piano. (Listening now, lovely).
Brahms - Violin Concerto and Sonata No.1.
Beethoven - Symphonies 5 and 8.
Beethoven - Quartets Vol.4
Beethoven - Piano Sonatas Vol.2.
Jacques Loussier Trio - Play Bach, jazz renditions of Bach pieces.
Dvorák - New World Symphony and Carnival Overture
Bach - Preludes and Fugues
Chopin - Complete Preludes
Chopin - Nocturnes
Rachmaninoff plays Rachmaninoff

Any thoughts, or recommendations based upon this?

If you like Beethoven's 5 and 8th Symphonies you'll probably like his 9th symphony "choral".

For Schubert try his 8th "unfinished" symphony.

Rachmaninov's First Symphony is a good one.

Brahms' 4th Symphony is also a good'un.

Just as with my other recommendations I must really infer anybody to listen to Symphony No. 5 by Gustav Mahler.

Also I just bought Shostakovich's 8th Symphony performed by the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. Also great.
#135
I was looking at the 9th Symphony earlier, I may pop back and get it.

I made a point of asking my dad about the Unfinished Symphony, and he doesn't have it on CD unfortunately. Neither did he have a copy of Albinoni's Adagio on CD, the bastard vinyl collector.

Thank you very much. This opening track by Mahler is storming. Haha, that's in the title too. It sounds wonderfully German too. I feel like marching around in Jackboots.

What exactly is a Fugue I have read numerous explanations, but at times my brain has trouble comprehending some things.

If I recall, it's supposed to be a piece centered around one repeating melodic hook. Let's go to the ever reliable wikipedia, shall we?

"In music, a fugue (pronounced /ˈfjuːɡ/) is a type of contrapuntal composition or technique of composition for a fixed number of parts, normally referred to as "voices".[1] In the Middle Ages, the term was widely used to denote any works in canonic style; by the Renaissance, it had come to denote specifically imitative works.[2] Since the 17th century[3], the term fugue has described what is commonly regarded as the most fully developed procedure of imitative counterpoint. A fugue opens with one main theme, the subject, which then sounds successively in each voice in imitation; when each voice has entered, the exposition is complete; this is occasionally followed by a connecting passage, or episode, developed from previously heard material; further "entries" of the subject then are heard in related keys. Episodes (if applicable) and entries are usually alternated until the "final entry" of the subject, by which point the music has returned to the opening key, or tonic, which is often followed by closing material, the coda.[1][4] In this sense, fugue is a style of composition, rather than fixed structure. Though there are certain established practices, in writing the exposition for example,[5] composers approach the style with varying degrees of freedom and individuality."

What's interesting, is that the Black Metal keyboard thing on my profile was describe as sounding somewhat like a fugue from a friend.

It would be too damn hard to pick a favorite of his. That guy was made to make music. Would have loved to meet him, its not everyday that a musical genius walks around new York homeless wearing a Viking suit while constructing his own instruments.

On The Streets of New York is absolutely delightful.

A recommended album by him?

Also VG I never thanked you for putting me onto Multiplex.

Dear God, this man sounds like the coolest person to have ever existed!!!

I listen to Western Art music occasionally (Tim from NeO said that's a better term), and I absolutely love what I've heard, although I am not as well versed as I'd like to be, I'll have to go on a binge one of these days. Check out Villa Lobos, he's awesome.

I have a better version on CD, I'll try and upload it another time.

VG is now my favourite UG user, well not really. But he has further impressed upon me the level of intelligence and level headedness that I already knew of. So much so that he does not care at all about what I have just written.

And I am very disappointed in the lack of Mahler in this forum. He would easily have to be my favourite composer ever of any genre. I honesty recommend his Fifth Symphony, Kindertotenlieder (songs for the death of children) and Das Klagende Lied for brutal heart wrenching music.

He can also be very easily described in metal terms as my (very uncompleted) arrangement of the second movement of his fifth symphony on GP will show:

Note that the only thing I have added to this is drums, everything else is as Mahler wrote (obviously not the orchestration, but yeah)

I'd also strongly recommend Rachmaninov and Stravinsky.

I'll definitely check this symphonies out.

You all should check out Grieg too, lots of people use his themes.

Does anyone know any good sites for "obtaining" Classical?

Pretty sure he's just fucking around.

On another note:
Mahler's 8th 'Symphony of a Thousand'.
Possibly the greatest finale I've heard. I really would love to work with an orchestra/choir combination that big, it's amazing. Very powerful piece.

Just thought I'd mention Purcell as well for all of you Clockwork Orange fans out there, he's an early Baroque composer I believe.

There are more parts to this in case you're wondering, I could post the others later if anyone is interested, or is just too lazy to find the others.

Nobody ever wants to talk about classical anymore. Where have you all been? I've yet to check out Mahler, I can't find a file for the complete symphonies that Lucas mentioned.

I've been listening to Muse a lot lately (not metal, I know), and they use a lot of progressions that sound like classical music. How do they do this? What is the theory behind it?

Well, one thing I do know is that Matt's piano solo in Butterflies and Hurricanes is his own version of Rachmaninov's piano Prelude Number 5 in G Minor.

Love Muse, almost certain that Matt was trained as a classical pianist, and I think he's been playing since he was five could be wrong though; his favourite pianist is Rachmaninoff and he loves the Romantic period, so that would explain his "classical" progressions, but as far as theory, I couldn't tell you exactly what he's doing, maybe, but I'm sure someone else could explain it better.
