Episode 83 – Acoustics

Sunday, November 2, 2008 Category: Specials Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Metal is known for being loud, rough, raw, ferocious and more. But there is also a softer side to it. Lots of bands use the accoustic guitar to co-exist with the electric one or be stand-alone. Metal goes accoustic today, so here is our first Accoustic Special. Only fully accoustic songs, either original or derived from the electric version. Sit back, relax and let the music give you some peace of mind.

    Always love to hear some good acoustic metal. A bit surprised there’s no Opeth in this list! They do an excellent job combining acoustics into the metal!

  2. Pedro says:

    Very nice one guys! Good songs!
    I have some suggestions to the next one:
    -“The bard song” from Blind Guardian (a classic one!)
    -“Time: the beginning” Megadeth
    -“Longing” Helloween (not so good though…)
    Dream Theater has lots of acoustic songs as well: “wait for sleep”, “the silent man”, “through her eyes” ❗

    You should have included “Send Me a Sign” by Gamma Ray. It’s way better acoustic than it is electric 🙂

  4. Polina says:

    Absolutely! ➡ My new fav episode ❗
    Exceptionally beautiful melodies! *faint*
    Looking forward to Vol.2 💡
    Hope you folks enjoyed it too!

    Actually I decided to listen to it whilst writing some stuff, as a sort of a background music, I ended up sitting back in the armchair, relaxing etc – all according to Tim’s prescription 😆 . Needless to say I done nothing what was planned 😛

    Very good episode! Relaxing and with beautiful melodies.
