Ok I mostly listen to technical death metal but recently ive been wanting to listen to something different. At the end of the song Spoils by Protest the Hero, the outro is a piano that sounds amazing in my opinion. I was wondering if anyone knew any good music to look up that sounds simliar to that.

The End of Everything - Trivium. Instrumental, very nice. Also, try 'A View of Burning Empires' by them, too.
You're = You are
Your = Belongs to you

There = Not here
Their = Belongs to them
They're = They are
Thx.

No i mean like are there any pianoist that play only stuff like that. Im not looking for songs that have metal or any other kind of genre with them.
#7
Kevin Moore perhaps. And Jordan Rudess' solo work.

On my piano playlist I have on the classical front:
Debussy
Bach
Schubert

Debussy is usually piano only, but Bach and Schubert also have full orchestral stuff.

On the Muse front, there is one rare track that is piano only (and very good)

Eluvium's album An Accidental Memory in the Case of Death is all piano.

Olafur Arnalds is a great Icelandic neo-classical composer, though usually the songs also have a string quartet too.

Bosques De Mi Mente is also lovely

I got my sister pregnant once. Yeah, that was awkward, but mostly because she's 6 years younger than me.

Le Onde by Ludovico Einaudi. Look it up seriously. It's the nicest piano piece I've ever heard

Silhouette by Opeth is a piece for solo piano, if you enjoyed the PTH piano breaks I'm sure you'll like this too.

Composers to look for: Beethoven(pathetique and appassionata sonatas), Chopin(scherzo in Bb minor), Ravel (jeux d'eau) etc....

endless list of great piano pieces.

edit: Einaudi is rubbish btw. Unoriginal, boring trite is all he thinks of.

Bill Evans is possibly my favourite piano player of all time.

He also wrote the intro to So What by Miles Davis, but I couldn't find it on Youtube.

Einaudi is very easy to get into. He's like the pop music of the classical world. I think he's very talented - I Giorni is by far my favourite of his pieces.

A lot of metal is based on Baroque music. Here's a fantastic piece by Scarlatti - it's played here on harpsichord.

Also can't go wrong with Chopin or Beethoven.

I'm partial to Brad Mehldau. He's a big Radiohead fan, or at least I'd assume he is, since he's done several covers of their songs, including "Paranoid Android": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWkOxYKNZOs

I like Herbie Hancock and Bill Evans, too. And Joe Zawinul, although Joe tended to play synth more.

Quote by El Hilliaro
Beethoven and Chopin.

Okay, I have a problem with this. You can't actually know for sure how good they were, since they both died long before recording was invented. Now, yes, Chopin is generally considered to be one of the best, but there aren't any recordings of him for us to verify that. I don't really know about Beethoven. I know he was supposed to have been really good, but I don't know if he was comparable to Chopin in technique. Nobody knows what they really sounded like, or if they'd even hold up with today's piano virtuosos. Both are considered to be among the greatest composers for piano, which we can verify.

Sorry for being pedantic, but it's true. If you want a great classical pianist, Horowitz was fantastic, as was Glenn Gould (I love Gould's recording of Hindemith's Piano Sonata no. 2) . Brad Mehldau was classically trained, too, although I've never heard him play classical, but I'd assume he's great at it.

I can't agree with these any more. Especially Mehldau, his covers are insane.

Definitely Blind faith- Dream Theater. There's an amazing piano solo in there. Well, a couple, but there's one that really stands out to me. I think you'll know which one when you listen to the song.
