It sounds funny, but does anyone know of any bands that have a circus-like element to their music? I'd prefer it to be metal. If you want an example, this song is along the lines of what I'm talking about.

So yea, just suggest some bands that have that kind of sound. Or just single songs.

SOAD did a one song with a circus feel. I'm pretty sure it's called peephole
I have too much gear to fit!

Pinkly Smooth and Kiss Kiss are good. Neither are super heavy, esspecially Kiss Kiss, but they compensate for it with circus-iness(?).

You think Sonata Arctica sounds like circus metal?


I didn't say that. I said that the song is along the lines of what I'm looking for.

Mr Bungle are sometimes classed as "carnival metal" i think.

EDIT: although they're nothing like that song you linked actually. Then again, that song you gave as an example I can't hear any circus-y elements to really...

A little piece of heaven by Avenged Sevenfold has a very circus feel.

Mr. Bungle's self titled album is full of weird circus type music fused with metal and just about every other genre you can think of... God I love that album! XD

slipknot looks like rejects from the circus and sound like b-sides from a rob zombie movie soundtrack.

i can only imagine what mushroomhead sounds like...
...because the last thing the world needs is another metal guitarist.

Me.

My band.

I like Fall Out Boy. I don't like you.

Mushroomhead are awesome,,, with the exception of Savior Sorrow,, that album was inexcusable,,, but XIII and XX are awesome albums.

+1 to uneXpect.

This song by Spastic Ink is also pretty circus-y at the start:

They had to have written that to correspond with the animation. That was probably my favorite part from Charlotte's Web.

Between the Buried and Me has a couple of songs with Circusy parts

Heres Sun of Nothing Ants of the Sky and Prequel to the Sequel
WATCH ALL 33 MINUTES OF IT
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxJXiTwxrno


you beat me, allthough, ants of the sky is the only real one i'd count, seeing as the others do have circus-ey influence, however ants of the sky is kinda based on that whole cricus/carnival/nostalgic feel.

Finntroll, Kopriklaani, Mr. Bungle, Faith No More sometimes have a bit of a "Carny" feel IMO.

You think Sonata Arctica sounds like circus metal? Listen to some Dog Fashion Disco, or for a less metal approach Tub Ring are awesome too.

DFD : http://youtube.com/watch?v=PQFMY9cyzGo
Tub Ring : http://youtube.com/watch?v=T7Q_rRIu3ic , not the best example of their eclecticism,, but an awesome song nonetheless

0.0 I love you

Dog Fashion Disco, Tub Ring, and Mr. Bungle are some of my favorite bands.

I can't ever find anyone else who likes them.
