Yep. It was my birthday and I was wanking in my room and all of a sudden my whole family came jumping in yelling "SURPRISE!!" I guess they were the ones who ended up being surprised.

Might not agree with me here, but I find Asturias/Leyenda to be brooding and subtley dark.

Just check out a lot of Russian composers, I just saw te National Symphony Orchestra play some Russian pieces at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC the other niht, and a lot of that stuff is really dark and almost creepy sounding.

I don't know if ti's what you are looking for but I recommend: Tschaikowski (spelling?) - 'le sacre de printemps'.


It's spelt Tchaikovsky and that piece was composed by Stravinsky anyway.

Wagner, Bach, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Shostakovitch, Tchaikovsky, I love that kind of classical music, the really atmospheric stuff from Eastern Europe, it's as heavy as doom metal, in fact it's very similar to doom metal.

Wagner, it's what Hitler listened to.


His favourite composer, I love his work. Ride of the Valkyries made Apocalypse Now what it is.

Whoever posted Beethoven's Seventh, it is wonderful, for fifteen years Beethoven has seeped into mind from my father's constant playing.

The spelling is arguable and varies from country to country.
I just checked, it is by Stravinsky. Sorry, my bad.

You can't list a bunch of composers and say they sound like Doom Metal. They have incredibly cheerful stuff as well as the darker stuff.

Well, their darker and heavier pieces of music have obviously inspired many funeral doom, black and progressive metal bands; as many elements of those composers' music are seen in the aforementioned bands' music. I'm not doubting their cheerful stuff, but this thread is about dark classical music.

I know, what you said just implied that TS could randomly pick any piece of their's and it would sound like an abortion.
