Episode 114 – Neoclassical Special

13. June, 2009

Episode CoverA new genre special, this time offering an ear on Neoclassical Metal. This has been suggested, but we’ve been playing with the idea for some time, yet it wasn’t that easy to instantly find enough, let alone the right kind of bands. Neoclassical Metal is based on the works of classic composers like Vivaldi, Mozart, Beethoven and others, and you’ll find bands from all over the world implementing these influences. One big example is Yngwie Malmsteen, but there’s also Rata Blanca, Dark Moor, Rhapsody, and many more. As usual, there are known and unknown/less known bands/artists. Neoclassical Metal is another domain which we need to explore more. Life is about learning, no matter which domain. Enjoy the show, give feedback and stay tuned.
