Atmospheric German one-woman band. She has done some fantasy stuff (good for a P&P session!), but this is her rendition of a German "working class" poem.

Nice! Thank you.

Something completely different:
Rapalje, Dutch band.

Just the (good) music:
Rapalje - The Crooked Bridge

And this is how they look (well, actually there are four members, the most handsome one, according to me, who plays the bagpipe, is not in this vid):
Rapalje - Star of the county down

Well that was a nice surprise, just letting the playlist continue. Haven't heard those in a LONG time.

I think "Atmospheric Black Metal" fits this album/artist well…one of my favorites.

Hopefully some will enjoy. Good headphones help

Interesting.
I'd pick up a dub version without the monster vocals. The atmospheric parts remind me of the some of the best of dark wave, with a good measure of speed metal.

It's been a long journey since, but this song and band remain one of my all time favorites. At 49 yrs, I had long thought my tastes and favorites were pretty set…boy was I wrong lol

Thanks to another gaming forum where bands/songs were shared by an international member base I was able to hear and discover a whole host of sounds/tastes I'd never imagined. I still love the classics of rock/metal from the 70s & 80s I grew up on…but some of these bands seem to transcend into a realm beyond.

Anyway…check it out. (and anything by Agalloch really…though their earlier worlks tend to be a bit more on the acoustic/atmospheric style that I enjoy greatly.)

Regards

Rol

ps - this particular track has a distinct Dead Can Dance vibe/influence to it, with vocals reminiscent to the late Brendan Perry. If you happen to be familiar with their sound/work from the 80s/90s 4AD records
Very nice. No metal at all in this one. Keys, synths, vocals, and lots of haunting atmosphere.

Nice… seeing that again caused me to rediscover some Tenacious D feat Dio.

That might be the best part in the movie to be honest, but I've only watched it once, and that was 7-8 years ago at least.

Paying homage to Stevie Ray Vaughn today, without listening to an actual SRV recording. Stevie is my favorite all-time guitarist, and I listen to ALOT of him, so I wanted to do something different. Stevie on lead guitar for David Bowie

HAHA! So cheesy, but a great song!

Dio was my first live concert where they used laser lights on stage (not just colored lighting). The spinxes at the sides of the stage shot red lasers like the current laser pointers out of their eyes. Although I had seen Dio in 1983 on the Holy Diver tour, the 1984 Last in Line tour is the one Im talking about

Time for something different .

Today, while driving to work and listening to the radio, I heard this work by Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla, which I liked. I knew him by name but I never got around to listen to his stuff. Guess it's time to change that.

True, I miss those old videos, they were so cheap, but damn funny to watch.
And god, look at those outfits! And that cheap, plastic cobra!

"The Last in Line" reminded me of this oldie but goodie

One of my favorite 80s rock videos and tunes. Not sure why this particular track/video didn't get more traction. Pretty good song imo
