    Oh hi, I can add some lesser known bands

    There's Junius, apparently more post-metal than prog, but it fits. Helps that it's an amazing album all round anyway.

    Also Need, a sort of Scenes From a Memory-type prog (from back when Dream Theater was still good )

    Also Anneke van Giersbergen's side projects: Vuur, her solo project, and the collab with Arjen Lucassen The Gentle Storm. Both excellent.

    Sunburst, prog-power, kinda like if Kamelot went prog (the guy sounds exactly like Tommy whatsisface).

    There's Myrath, Tunisian prog with a Middle Eastern flavour. No real parallels to Orphaned Land except for the Middle-Eastern-ness.

    Arcane is now sadly disbanded, but the couple of albums that they put out is amazing. Jim Grey has a heavenly voice. And speaking of which, his other band, Caligula's Horse, is just as good, albeit not really metal. Still definitely worth a listen though.

    And then, possibly my favourite band in the world than no-one has ever heard of, is Shadow Gallery. Metal with a bit of a classical side, amazing musicianship and delicate vocals. Great band, but they're not really a touring band so they're a bit off everyone's radar.

    Obscure is good. I actually already listen to Myrath. Cool to find someone else that know of them
    Also, Shadow Gallery fits well with what I'm looking for

    Oh hey, a buddy sent that to me literally yesterday. I guess Napalm Records is heavily marketing them, that's why they're suddenly everywhere.

    They're only like 17 years old, too. Good for them. I like the music too; pretty interesting. The music videos are ****ing awesome though.

    I wanted to like that a whole lot more than I did. The chanting at the start was pretty rad, but there wasn't a riff that followed that caught my attention. Bummer, metal inspired by and drawing on Maori folklore and musical traditions sounds like it could be amazing.

    I have to agree. Now, I think I should look up their album and check if they also did more complex songs. In my experience, the single or song picked for the video rarely is the best song on the album

    I recently rediscovered Depresy's Sighting and thought I'd share, since it seems to be something of a buried gem. Plenty of black/death metal takes cues from goth rock, but there's a uniquely darkwave vibe to this album that I just love-- some of the intros/instrumentals wouldn't sound out of place on a Clan of Xymox record.

    That's a good one, and it's been a bit of a journey for me. I liked some metal when I was younger, mostly Maiden (Infinite Dreams was my jam) and Faith No More (Angel Dust, start to finish), stumbled on Saviour Machine (Legion!!) thanks to a christian friend I exchanged mixtapes with. But my tastes on the fringes leaned more goth/noise/experimental, as my friends got into extreme metal in the 90s, it wasn't doing much for me.

    Fast forward a decade. My favorite band is Current 93. They do a split with Om, which leads me to Sleep. A friend recommends Jesu, Isis, Boris and Sun O))). I check back in with Opeth, and see they've discovered Comus (who I also love, and discovered through C93). At this point, I'm far more open to metal, though my tastes are still on the fringey ends. So if we're going to credit one song, it'd be the Om side of the C93 split, "Rays Of The Sun / To The Shrinebuilder"

    Death's Scream Bloody Gore. I was pretty young at the time-- thirteen or fourteen-- and I think some of the more off-the-wall stuff my parents listened to (Magma, chiefly) sort of equipped me to appreciate the extreme nature of the music in a way I might not have otherwise. I sadly don't remember just what my immediate reaction was, or what exactly hooked me about it, but it pretty much sparked my passion for music where hitherto I had listened to music and enjoyed it but never quite fallen in love with it. Perhaps ironically, it was only after Scream Bloody Gore got me into extreme metal (Suffocation and Deicide were other early favourites) that I was able to go on to appreciate softer forms of rock and pop. I've branched out significantly since then, but metal remains, you might say, my first love.

    I've actually been meaning to ask, since you seem to be the most well-versed in the realms of goth, if you can recommend any bands/albums in the vein of Clan of Xymox's Medusa. I may have asked this before because I've been on a quest ever since I first heard that album to find another with quite the same vibe, but I've come up short.

    Anyone here heard of MASTER BOOT RECORD? Guy's stuff all has an excellent flavor, black, chippy, yet undeniably metallic. It's aggressively non-lyrical, but I happen to be the sort that prefers that.

    Yeah, it's a pretty exceptional album! For the more instrumental themes, bits of His Name Is Alive's "Livonia" or Dead Can Dance's "Within the Realm of a Dying Sun" come to mind. For the pop-ier songs, Drab Majesty's "The Demonstration" will sound very familiar! Maybe some Cocteau Twins. Basically, half of 4AD's releases in the 80s, and half of Dias Records' releases these days! But, again, that's a tough album to match, even among Xymox releases.

    I was exposed to the weirder stuff way before I ever heard the more OG metal - in school, a buddy of mine's older brother was a proper metalhead and gave me a mix-tape of sorts with songs from (if memory serves):
    Agalloch, Agathodaimon, Anathema, Apoptyma Berzerk, Dargaard, Diary of Dreams, Die Verbannten Kinder Evas, Dimmu Borgir, Elend, L'Ame Immortelle, Nightwish, Theatre of Tragedy, Therion, Tiamat...
    and probably some others I'm forgetting.

    So that's already an odd constellation of music. And while I was into it, it wasn't until I heard Iced Earth's Horror Show around 2005 that I was completely hooked. Proper old-school, slightly thrashy, power metal with amazing songwriting. And that eventually got me into pretty much everything I'm into today.

    So yeah, Horror Show for sure. It's still easily among my top 10 records.

    Time to check out every one of those. I'm a little familiar with some of those (Treasure from Cocteau Twins and His Name is Alive's Home Is In Your Head) but not those specific albums. Thanks most kindly!

    Thank you! Always glad to expand the horizon. If you like that, be sure to also check out his side project KEYGEN CHURCH (https://keygenchurch.bandcamp.com/album/-). It's like his other stuff, but with organs and pianos! Plus, you gotta admit, it takes some real cojones to name an album "░ ▒ ▓ █ ."

    So here's a funny story. There's a local horror play company doing a stage version of the movie Fright Night. Officially licensed, with the blessing of the creator. Pretty cool! I'm a big fan, and the sequel was good too. I enjoyed the remake as well, nor something I often say with remakes of films I love. Anyway, they were looking for someone to do a cover of the title song, originally by the J Geils band, to play at the end for curtain call, giving it a movie credits sort of feel. Who do you call for an 80s horror song? The local darkwave/goth guy, of course!

    The director thought my version was too dark. They offered to pay for me to try again and make it more pop, but I declined. I have no interest in making music that doesn't sound like me right now. Besides "too dark for a horror play" is worth about a million goth points!

    The thing is, it's not really all that dark. The song is inherently a little goofy. I took it seriously, but the lyrics are b-movie bad. It's always going to be fun in a cheesy way. Halloween is coming up, so I figured I might as well finish and release it.
    https://doorsinthelabyrinth.bandcamp...k/fright-night

    I don't imagine anyone around her will find it particularly dark, but I'm hoping folks will find it fun in a Halloween party Monster Mash sort of way!

    I like it! It's pretty good. You're right that it's not really super "dark", I think they just found it a little too...airy? Ambient? Something.

    If anyone has a thing for speedy metal, this stuff is like cocaine.

    So yeah, Horror Show for sure. It's still easily among my top 10 records.
    That really is a great record! One of the first I got of the Iced Earth catalogue, and my favourite together with Burnt Offerings and Dark Saga

    The thing is, it's not really all that dark. The song is inherently a little goofy. I took it seriously, but the lyrics are b-movie bad. It's always going to be fun in a cheesy way. Halloween is coming up, so I figured I might as well finish and release it.

    I don't imagine anyone around her will find it particularly dark, but I'm hoping folks will find it fun in a Halloween party Monster Mash sort of way!
    Cool version, but not dark at all. I think your usual stuff is darker, so it's a bit on the light side from what I have come to expect from you

    Immortal Guardian rip - is it just me or is the power metal scene better than ever, just hidden?

    Nice. I'm impressed. Are you only making for yourself, or are you planning to eventually start selling?

    Thanks :) Those two (plus the one on the left in the Spoiler Picture in this post) are for me and to practise. The Bass in the picture is for a friend, and I've got one more "Violet" Shape with a twist for an actual paying customer.

    Basically:
    If people are willing to give me money for these, I'm willing to sell :) So if you've got an idea in your head, by all means, hit me up.
    What I can't do at this point (or rather haven't tried) is true temparament and inlaywork.

    The first one was pretty good already, only the 7th string gave is a bit wobbly, and 3 frets on the highest two strings are a bit fiddly. And the thing survived a 10-day-tour :)

    Also:
