Post "Metal Classical" - Classical for metallers
...or metal-ish classical music, or classical music that reminds you of metal basically.

Wagner of course.

3.40 -->

Musorgsky. \,,/_


Bach naturally, as endorsed by Spinal Tap.


anus.com are right into this kind of thing (teHjoozdun9-11).

Any others?

The obvious one for me is Holst's 'Mars, The Bringer Of War' from The Planets, mainly because Diamond Head used it for Am I Evil? Hans Zimmer lifted bits for the Gladiator soundtrack, at least it sounds that way.

Describe the opening section of this with any word other than "riff", I dare you.

1. You're gay
2. Apparently, I briefly forgot how to post a YouTube link
3. The comedy one where I type "you're gay" again to reinforce the point

The fuckin' RITE OF SPRING, bitches

Also, Sibelius' "Night Ride and Sunrise", as he prefaced it with a description that's something like "frost falls over the Finnish woods, the moon shines as the snow glimmers in the twilight..." or something. Black metal.

The best classical music is the opening bits on Dimmu Borgir albums, all them old guys couldn't write proper music.

Modest Mussorgsky's A Night on the Bare Mountain always sounded evil and metal to me, I always play it on halloween. I suppose you could also add O Fortuna from Karl Orff's Carmina Burrana, as covered by Botch I believe.

carmina burana is the obvious one as it has been used so many times in so many different 'scary' movies and so forth

some great crashing brahms could fit the bill or the confutatis from the requiem mass maybe, things like that

Only if they spelled my name right.

You could probably argue about whether or not this strictly constitutes "classical" or not, but fuck it: 'Stella Splendens', from the Llibre Vermell de Montserrat:



Ignore the Americans and their slightly clunky interpretation of fifteenth century German wrestling, and listen to the tune. If the hair on your arms doesn't go up when the whole choir comes in, there's something wrong with you.

Carl Orff's Carmina Burana has already been mentioned, but most people never look beyond 'O Fortuna'. Which is a shame, because the next part - 'Fortune Plango Vulnera' - kicks at least as much arse:



It's a shame the rest of the opera is so disappointingly Christmassy-sounding.

busoni's piano concerto in c major op 39 - one of the most brutally difficult piano works ever written, and written by a pianist who is arguably one of the greatest who ever lived

it doesnt get much more metal than that - try the 5th movement - altera pars - mind blowing!

i found it !! the entire concerto is on there played by hamelin, i had a listen to the 5th movement as played here and i didnt care for the way the sound was balanced as compared to my cd but the 3rd movement seems much clearer so have a listen and watch his hands fly - (now if i can remember how to post these vids...)

shoot - back to the drawing board, i blew it somehow..

i hope some of you stick it out right to the end, this movement is a good example of the entire concerto and really, the difficulty is mind boggling and hamelin's skill is staggering
