Greetings and welcome to my profile.

Grew up with a love for science fiction and fantasy, which eventually led me to anime. I tend to prefer thought-provoking shows with dark and tragic elements. Shows with elements a bit left of centre or slightly odd tend to catch my attention.

Classical/Progressive Metal: Opeth, Porcupine Tree, Karnivool, Twelve Foot Ninja, Iced Earth, Cog, SoilWork, The Haunted, Paco Pena, Paco De Lucia, Dream Theater, Tool

Favourite Books/Authors:

Thanks for the recommendation. I think I'm going to check out more of that band. It seems like all the Australian bands I've listened to are really good. Be'lakor, Empyrean, Aeternitas, and The Nihilist are all great Australian bands. If you liked Area 51, then you might like Dragon Guardian.

Shadow has one of my favorite vocalists, because you just don't see many women doing that type of vocals. Another band with great female death vocals is Cerebral Bore.

Sigh is probably one of the coolest bands I've heard. They are so random. Each album is completely different.

Thanks. I'll definitely check that stuff out. Into Eternity definitely sounds awesome.

 

I'm always looking for great Japanese metal bands. They can be hard to find, but the good ones are definitely awesome. I especially have a hard time finding Japanese metal bands that use clean vocals (ie power, thrash etc.). Usually the vocals just sound all the same, and are kind of boring. That thrash band Volcano is pretty good though.

I see that you like Dream Theater too. Have you listened to their new album. I've been listening to it a lot lately.

Yeah, it sounds really good from what I've heard. I actually ordered the CD earlier today. I never really listened to them until recently because I typically stick to the extreme metal genres. I heard the vocalist is new, and I think he does a great job.

Have you listened to Iced Earth's new album? I was thinking about getting it.

Thanks, this was my last Evangelion amv (at least until 3.0 comes out). I like that song too. Out of the Electro/Idustrial music I own this is one of my favorites. I have no idea when my next amv will be finished. But it won't be as exciting as this one (I will try to focus on the "flow" of the video).
