It's okay. Kind of fun. Some of it reminds me a little of Mario Kart tracks.

@Chris: I'm not sure I ever saw any of that show... I dunno, I mostly remember the Tasmanian Devil from the 50s-60s Looney Tunes.

Hey, someone say Nightwish? I like Nightwish.

Heard 3/4 Nightwish songs you posted before (well, within the last week or so). Hadn't heard "While Your Lips Are Still Red". "End Of All Hope" is probably my favorite of the four, but certainly isn't my favorite of their songs.

My favorite is probably this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7z_vEuA3IK8
This is probably my second: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXhdzuyMmoo <- Annoyingly, the part of the song when they're repeating "Save yourself and let them suffer!" gets stuck in my head and keeps repeating over and over. lol

Also, I liked the first WT song.

Their outfits and instruments changed to fit each theme.

Nice.

Aaand more from Nightwish:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fV2C9_MAJ0E

I've actually listened to all seven of their official albums now. There's probably a few songs I've missed, but I've heard most of them now. The latest one, Imaginaerum, is by far the best album in my opinion. And I honestly think they pretty much got better as they went (the first three albums weren't as good as the last four). Also I think I like Anette a little more than Tarja.

And back into some more traditional metal:

Feel like this has been posted before, but don't care, posting it anyway:

So, in honor of Halloween, my once favorite holiday but now just a day where I eat a little more candy than usual... some (mostly posted before) horror-themed songs:

Christopher Lee is certainly an interesting fellow: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVzOve8T39w That's not something I expected...

Best version of The Little Drummer Boy I've ever heard.

@Olivia: I would have to say it is mine too... but that's just because I hate The Little Drummer Boy song in general, so giving it a metal flare actually makes it listen-to-able.

@Jonathan: I remember reading on some website about Lee being in some secret agent things during WWII, but I doubted the authenticity of the website. I guess it was accurate.

In any case, that guy is one serious BADASS.

On another note... this song is wonderful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4wt9kLexnM

Slowly working my way through the Within Temptation albums. The first couple weren't real good though (too much death growling).

Same here actually. In fact, that one of the few songs I'd actually be able to name if someone asked me to list songs that I 'hate'. Not that it's that deserving of such a vitriolic attitude, but it's terribly annoying and a certain person I'm related to used to sing it all the time which certainly didn't help any... BUT ANYWAY.

Lee was also a pilot in the Royal Air Force during WW2, and at some point promoted to squadron leader. And apparently shortly after the invasion of Italy, he was on leave in Naples, and went and climbed Mt. Vesuvius. Three days before it erupted. That last bit is just a random thing I read on wikipedia and found interesting.

@WT song: Yeah, I like that one too, though it's not my favorite of theirs.

@Garyn: Currently, it's my favorite song by them. But I'm only three albums in so that is subject to change.

Don't care about the song, but I was impressed by the singing: http://youtu.be/0VBbErzAYQw

This might be my favorite non-John Williams piece of soundtrack ever: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fQuEqwQ2I4

Not a Hans Zimmer track? Huh.

Anyway, that was pretty cool. Might be worthy of being added to my combat theme playlist.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d1uE3eP5R0Q - Really like the instrumentals to this for some reason.

Also, for a good combat soundtrack: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfjiP4Fyc4M

Stepping away from metal for a moment.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lkg24rXvvss - Rather like this one for some reason.

Oh, and how about a TOR soundtrack piece:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=109HrMeylRY - If you listen to the whole thing, the ending totally sounds like something out of ancient Rome or one of those classic biblical movies. It's pretty neat. Feel like I might have posted it before, but I don't think I have... I don't think.

Also, I do kind of like song references and trivia:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGuwlkxT4KQ
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Cyokaj3BJU
I had noticed the reference in the second one, I just didn't know what song it was in response to until I found out who the singer of the first song was.
