I thought it would be cool to start a thread where we can discuss our favourite musical bands and genres.

I love power metal that is based on fantasy. One of my favourite bands is Avantasia. Their song "The Seven Angels" is absolutely epic.
Just an incredible composition. Very sad that one of the guest singers, Andre Matos tragically died June 2019 of a heart attack.

He was the one singing the following line in the song:
When you're walking on your own
When you're broken and alone
You may feel us from inside on the other side of life
This was back in 2002, but still makes the song even more powerful knowing the sad news about Andre Matos.

Great idea! I gave yours a listen it is pretty epic. I'm partial to slightly milder tones myself, but I love me a good ballad, and your song is a heck of a story. Wondering if you've heard of a7x since a friend recently told me about them and I get a pretty similar vibe.

I have not heard of them, but I will look them up and take a listen. Thanks so much. :thumbup:

Darn, I didn't know the singer had died -- sad to hear that.

The Seven Angels is a great song. I like the changes in tempo, melody and instrumentation. The Metal Operas are definitely classics. I've been listening to them for over 15 years now.

I like most of the albums by Avantasia as well as Edguy, Tobias Sammet's main band.

Yup those metal operas are awesome. :D

I haven't heard much of Edguy. I'm going to give them a listen.

Tobias Sammet is such a good song writer. His compositions are amazing, so I'm sure I will love Edguy too. :thumbup:
