Alright well I am putting this here, because I want some metal, but if this is the wrong forum then I'll move it. Anyways, I am making a friend a mix tape, and I want to show her some metal. We both love alternative stuff like Muse, Smashing Pumpkins, etc, but I happen to listen to a lot of metal as well, and I wanted to show her some, so that maybe she'll grow to like it too. So yeah keep the screaming and crazy instrumentals on the down low, and help me find some soothing stuff with clean vocals, classical instruments such as cello and violin would be cool, and some mellow stuff like Alcest and forgotten woods would be cool. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.


Edit: If you could state a band, and an accompanying song that would be awesome. Thanks.

i reckon stick more towards progressive and power metal. Also i guess try out some doom such as Draconian. (for more, go to the recommendations thread at the top of the page!)

^Yeah I love Draconian! I want to put some, but I don't want to scare her with the vocals, even though Anders it amazing. I am putting some Agalloch for sure, and Blind Guardian too, because she loves Lord of the Rings. Yeah I know about the rec thread, but I just want like random songs from bands, or a band similar to the ones I've mentioned, because I am going to make the mix today, and it is going to take me awhile.

Apocalyptica! Metal with cello!

And, because Apocalyptica are just ridiculous, Metallica or Megadeth. Not too heavy, but still undeniably metal.
#5
Yeah I wanted to do Apocalyptica, but she knows them already (just found out), so that's gone.

Definiantly go for Megadeth. I have friends that hate most metal, but think Peace Sells is amazing. You could try Seasons In The Abyss by Slayer. That song is a bit easier on the ears for first time listeners than most of their other stuff, and it has cool solos.

If Hendrix, Clapton and Page were to jam, the most impressive guitarist playing would be Paul Gilbert.

Definitely some of Metallica's older work/Megadeth. Go for some In Flames - Gyroscope? Maybe?

Hollow - Pantera.
Rainmaker - Iron Maiden
The Wizard - Black Sabbath
Burning Angel - Arch Enemy (questionable due to vocals)
Black Sunrise - Kreator
Black Winter Day - Amorphis
Sorgens Kammer - Dimmu Borgir
Fuel for Hatred - Satyricon

etc...lol

Therion/Ensiferum. too many to name. anything off vovin
I truly am my own redeemer
Blindly I follow none but myself
Without fear I am
Unhallowed be my name

Myself am hell and hell I shall unleash
I laugh at Thee to scorn
Mock Thy majesty
Pour forth my chalice ov victory

What about Theatre of Tragedy? Male death grunts, but beautiful female soprano vocals. But stick with the first three albums. The rest are electro/industrial shit. Cheerful Dirge, Fair & 'Guiling Copesmate Death, and Cassandra are some good ones.

EDIT: And, although the vocals are mostly death-ish style, Dark Lunacy have some amazing classical stuff mixed in. Dolls, Defaced, and Snowdrifts are some good ones.

Pretty much any Symphony X, especially the Oddyssey.
If you see me in the pit, know that I'm only there because the metal forum is moving slowly.

Trying to get in her pants, eh?

sorry, couldnt help my self.

Try:

Empyrium
Falkenbach
Ulver
Mystic Forest
Hammerheart era Bathory
Darkestrah
Elend
Arcturus

...although it sounds as if she would enjoy neofolk a whole lot more.

So also try...

Death in June
Tenhi
Of The Wand And the Moon
Nest
Foresti
Orplid

Argh how could I forget Wintersun! Yeah folk is the way to go man seriously. I put some ulver on it, and thus far the cd is epic in my opinion. And to Grim Necro Kvlt. Of course man, women love mix tapes, but I am looking more so for a relationship (she is awesome) rather than sexy time (she is hot though).

Pain Of Salvation should work, songs such as Ashes, Undertow, Ending Theme etc.
my ex-girlfriend especially loved Dryad Of The Woods

maybe try some softer Testament songs like The Legacy, Return To Serenity, The Ballad etc.
I’m not the man I used to be, I... I can’t go back to Arkham.

I... I should return to Arkham.

Sonata Arctica - Fullmoon, Kingdom For a Heart

Soilwork, Disarmoni Mundi, and Gojira should work for trying to get her into screams/growls. The not-clean vocals in those bands aren't that heavy compared to others.

I'd go with these songs:

Soilwork-Song of the Damned, Natural Born Chaos, As We Speak, Shadowchild
Disarmonia Mundi-Resurrection Code, A Taste of Collapse, Nihilistic Overdrive
Gojira-Backbone, World to Come, Global Warming, To Sirius

And for other stuff...

Iron Maiden-The Longest Day, The Trooper, Run to the Hills, Hallowed Be Thy Name
Lacuna Coil-Within Me, Swamped, Heaven's A Lie, Daylight Dancer
Symphony X-Of Sins and Shadows, The Accolade, The Accolade II, Pharaoh, The Eyes of Medusa

Yeah I'm going to put a Sonata Arctica song, can't decide on one though, and I am so ****ing pissed though, because I can't find Little Blue Butterfly by Death in June. That song is epic, and I know she would love it. I must say I enjoyed your little list of Neofolk Necro, twas good I think I'll look into it more for myself. to all that have contributed.

The live version is even more epic
The Crowd get involved and sing the high part in the chorus are you can hear a chant of "HEY HEY HEY" through the verse.
