"Destroy Everything You Touch" by Ladytron

And not a shoegaze tune among them…

Been away for a couple days and haven't had a chance to listen to everyone's samples. Just wanted to mention that I have the Ladytron album with that song on it. Took a long while for the album to grow on me, but it did. "Witching Hour" is the best track imo. Never would have compared them to Depeche Mode though.

Incedentally, the best cover of a Depeche Mode song I've ever heard was by Lacuna Coil. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lx58hXh4pVA
The video's kind of pointless but it's worth listening to through to the end.

Do you differentiate on the vocals, though? For me, I can give you vocals that are achingly beautiful (Suzanne Perry in the above clips fits the bill, among others), or I can give you vocals that make love to my ears (Harriet Wheeler of the Sundays and Kaitlyn ni Donovan of the High Violets would fit), but I've never heard a voice that truly belongs in both categories. I wonder if you run into a similar situation, although your "divisions" would probably be different.
I'd have to say that a true classical singer who has elevated her voice to an almost supernatural level (such as Mary Ann) can of course do both, when not even really knowing what the hell she's saying can still make your heart melt. You still know youre listening to something really special, difficult, something that's amazing. Her voice is the essence of femininity. That's the double whammy of skill and emotion right there, but "classical metal" vocals and true classical soprano are two totally different leagues of course, minor and major respectively.

Still looking for the metal dame that can do both, havent found her yet!

Hmmm, DM covers, eh? There have been a few tribute cds (I know Trancemode Express has done several, although I'm guessing that's not the musical direction you really want to take), but I never really looked into them. Don't know that this cover is all that spectacular, but I found it when I was on my Andain kick a couple years ago.
"Here is the House" by Andain

Started digging around a bit, and look what I found. It's a trend.
"Here is the House" by Echoing Green

If you're talking DM-covers you have to mention For the Masses. Since it's an album filled with DM-covers…

A little more obscure than usual—the good news is that although this band has only 2 good songs, both of them are at the link:
"Silver" and "Snowshine" by Colfax Abbey

Pardon the double post, but I found a special treat for the NFGer's:

Not sure why, but this is Gig's theme for me. I imagine Giggles driving a red convertible, hair a wind-blown mess, speeding down an ocean-side highway on a georgeous sunny day. Couldn't tell you why, and the only link to reality is that I've got a general idea where she lives. Anyway, close your eyes and see everyone's favorite carefree "Southern Spirit".

"Finest Hour" by Velocity Girl

Iron Maidens - Phantom of the Opera

All girl tribute band to Maiden, seeing them tomorrow night. Theyre pretty cool, really good musicians, but I dont like their vocalist as much as their former one, Jen. She just doesnt have the presence that Jen did. Nor that snarl or yell, man Jen looked like she'd rip off your head if you got too close!

Current Lineup doing Aces High

Old Lineup doing the Trooper

Jen was just more of a metal dame, the new one tries to actually sing too much. You just need to belt it out lady, sound venemous, sound raw ya know, it's metal. She sounds more like Bruce too.

And who the hell is Alex Skolnik, get off the stage! Good guitarist tho ='.'=

I'm just not sure how to react to that one, Sammy.

Dense, anthemic dreampop for tonight:

A little lighter fair for this morning:
"In Your Arms" by Orange Yellow Red

CU- you should scroll down and play "Shattered". I think it's an unholy marriage of Danella and Robert Smith.

I recently discovered Staubkind. While this track may not be thoroughly representative for their stuff, his voice reminds me of Peter Heppner's.

Gary Numan - Greatest Hits.

I want to buy his records, but they're not avaliable anywhere (at least not for someone who doesn't have a credit card) .

Straight-forward fun pop music for y'all today. I don't know why these guys never really hit it big. Maybe the wide range of styles on each cd was too challenging for the masses.

Gorgeous Frankenstein

This is Doyles (misfits) solo project, only two songs into it, and it sounds like total metal, not the punk I that I was expecting. Sounds like late-era Danzig, without Glenn, which is no surprise since it's on his evilive label and produced by him. He also runs the words together a lot too, (bad) grammatical trademark

There was a "Kidnapped" made for TV movie (TNT network I think) not too long ago that had some good music. Wish I could find it on CD somewhere…

No, unless they used the same music for both shows, that's not it. The movie I'm thinking of was made about 4 years ago. The stuff you listed was written the year I was born!
