Just for listening, finding new music and for inspiration for own compositions.


Have you tried Seven Impale?

here's a Bandcamp link as well, in case you prefer that service.

Wow! Listening to it now, the first two sound very, very great! Not what I had in mind exactly, but that's not the point, after all I could prefer this. The only thing right now is the vocals that I have to get used to the most, remind me a bit of Peter Hammil.

Audition in The Hague in almost a month now, I think I have a slight preference for that one, so I'll let you know by then.

Coming tuesday I will be auditioning for the conservatory in The Hague, very excited and of course busy with practising it all. Got a pretty confident feeling, due to what people say to me and the fact that I'm already accepted at Codarts.

On a different note, I just published a track of my coming album, already pretty far with it and I think it will be more interesting than the previous ones. More experimental and instrumental, the most is completely through-composed/written out. I try to blend a lot of styles (will be quite jazzy but will also sound like modernistic classical music) and also make it complex as well as romantic. Defenitely not everything of all that is hearable in this short track, but I think that it's a nice preview anyway Big smile

^Pascal!!! Great stuff. Fantastic composition. It has that compositional intricacy I love about Gentle Giant from The Power and Glory era.  I really admire the moments like at 0:58, when the tempo gets a bit edgy. Great stuff. I can't wait to hear the whole album. I really like that direction you have taken musically.

And good luck at your audition in The Hague! Big smile

^Thank you so much!!! GG was defenitely a big influence (although you probably already knew that Wink).

And yeah, that bit is an interesting rhythm I thought, it's a 7/4 which isn't that special, but the last three counts are in a slightly slower tempo. Combined with a syncopated rhythm and a triplet... I'm barely to get it tightly together (as you can hear) but strangely somehow the rhythm came into my head exactly like this LOL

Great news again! Got accepted at The Hague as well! So excited to go study there next year, it was always kind of a dream for me Big smile

On a different note, I've been listening a lot to Seven Impale - City Of The Sun. It has of course grown on me, but in general it's... Very enjoyable and 'adventurous' and daring, only personally I would prefer less metal and more different melodies to make such a chaotic bit. Also it tends to drag on a bit at points where there is a nice riff but lacks development. What IMO is one of the major qualities in this album is the deeply thought-out, technical and masterfully surprising rhythmics. You can defenitely hear that most of the rhythms of the riffs, bass and drums are very smartly and complementingly blended. I'll rate it with a 9.

Because I really dig this one but long for more jazz or other influences than heavy-metal, JRF could be a genre in which I will find some things I really like. Just listened to Romantic Warrior and I clearly hear some things I recognise from Thank You Scientist which are probably common in fusion. My quest for GG like fusion has begun...Tongue
