I'm trying to remember the name of this one band......they were french and the name might have begun with a C.....and they were very cabaret....

Anybody help me out?
#10
battle metal would be similair to folk/viking i assume and space metal is just the space themed album of ayreon...i dunno if anyone else has followed on with the 'genre'
#11
yeah the battle metal was like finnish folk metal. the pirate metal was funny, basically pirate themed heavy metal

Yes! That's the one.

I'd long forgotten about them until this thread came up. They were pretty good.

Those really wierd genres usually have nothing to do with sound. You don't classify a band into a genre because of what they sing about. That said, Luca Turilli claims his music is like cosmic astroid eclipse space meteor metal or something.

Melodic Death Metal, as much as I like it, has got to be one of the most contradictory sounding metal genres out there, but it fits perfectly.

The only reason Melodic Death Metal is a stupid genre is because all death metal is melodic.

Fantômas have been called avante-garde metal, pretty wierd music in general

I find that a lot of melodeath has more in common with thrash than with death, strangely.


Melodic thrash
I dunno about wierd, persay, but some metal bands are crazy about vikings.

Senthil is wierd. The vocals are incredibly tortured sounding.

Demilich is wierd too. Completely atonal but groovy riffs, sometimes even happy sounding, with really guttural frog vocals.

Reverend Bizarre are weird. Theyre kinda Medieval doom metal. Really strange though. I suppose its all in the name.

One time, after a gig, I had a foursome with these chicks that wouldn't shutup about my four-finger tapping.

I would much rather they had just talked about my penis.

Exactly

All strange types are just maybe refering to one band or two,or sometimes as a joke


anyway on the subject, Ephel Dauth and Opeth probably stand out than other types of metal,they have unique sounds.
