Any term for this kind of music? 2013-09-12 06:20:56 Reply

Hey everyone!

I'm curious about certain music that I don't really know a name for. I've been listening to it since many years but I never actually thought about finding out the name of this music style. I really love it and it would be great if somebody could help me out with that.
It's somewhat a mixture of rock, sometimes jazz, electro (distorted drums in the background, synthesizer) and very often has this acoustic drum-sound. The guitars are very often clean and they play chords with big intervals. In some parts they get very distorted too and use powerchords. Maybe you just can't relate it to any music style? I don't know. Let me just show you a few examples.

Just ignore the content of the videos.

Btw.: I've heard a few NGers produce similar music so far. This one for example.. "Cold Metal", an old track from Sorohanro reminds me of it a lot:

  • Cold metal
    Cold metal by sorohanro

    some metal song i made when i bought my (old) new guitar

    Score
    4.05 / 5.00
    Type
    Song
    Genre
    Heavy Metal
    Popularity
    2,278 Views

(Has a lot of similarities.)

Sorry for the language errors. I'm not really into English today.
I'd really appreciate some help. Thanks a lot!!

Some sort of ambient/Alternative rock genre i guess but i dont have much knowledge on that.
Anyway, what i do know is that you will without a shadow of a doubt love Akira Yamaoka , he was the composer behind the popular Silent Hill game series.
Songs like True , Promise , Theme of Laura and Mary's Twin will surely make you happy!
If you like psychological horror i advise you to play the games, they are an unforgettable ride :)


No mather how good you are sometime, somewhere, somehow...
Someone will blow your mind and make feel a beginner again..

First song you linked was fusion(which is jazz and funk or jazz and rock), the rest was just rock music.
