    Not super familiar with Vader, but that song kind of evokes Tiamat's Clouds to me.

    I like old Tiamat up to Wildhoney. I didn't care for A Deeper Kind of Slumber and lost interest.

    I don't really like A Deeper Kind of Slumber either, but I do like Prey and Amanethes to some extent, though not as much as Clouds. Wildhoney is definitely cool too, especially "Do you Dream of Me?" But yeah, A Deeper Kind of Slumber and then Skeleton Skeletron and Judas Christ (can't remember which order those two were in) just completely departed from metal and weren't that interesting. Here's a track from Prey, to show you that they at least got somewhat heavier (not sure if you've already heard the album but here it is anyway) :


    The death metal influence is completely gone, but it's still got a great atmosphere and is recommended for fans of gothic metal/rock (actual goth rock-inspired metal, not "gothic metal" bullshit like Within Temptation or whatever).

    Heretics!

    Tiamat doesn't have a bad album :D

    Wildhoney is great. I like both A Deeper Kind of Slumber and Skeleton Skeletron, and of course Judas Christ is a great album. Can't go wrong with Tiamat!

    Well, I don't mind Skeleton Skeletron, it's such blatant Sisters of Mercy worship that's it may as well be the fourth Sisters of Mercy album, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it's not as good as a lot of their other albums. A Deeper Kind of Slumber and Judas Christ just do nothing for me. Nor does their latest one, forget the title.

    Does sound a lot like SoM, though my favorite SoM albums predate Vision Thing. I like Vision Thing, but First and Last and Always and Some Girls Wander... are better.

    My favorite SoM album is Floodland, though I also dig Vision Thing. I don't remember First and Last and Always that well and I've never checked out that Some Girls Wander compilation, will have to do so.

    Good albums. Much more toward the early 80s goth sound - even moreso than Floodland. But I like a lot of that stuff.

    Equilibrium is great for writing fantasy! The album is called sagas and when I listen to it at the gym on the treadmill I am frodo being chased by orcs and I have to run for my life.

    I see your Equilbrium track and raise you Summoning, synth/black metal band about LotR themes.

    Or, for a more power metal take on Tolkien:

    Of course! :) Blind Guardian rule. Hansi seems to have a penchant for writing about cool authors. Tolkien, King, then Jordan and Martin on their 2010 album. The song from their 1990 album Tales from the Twilight World that bears the same name as the king novel is pretty cool as well:

    Use BING to search for my music, thank God for safe search at work.
    I thought I typed Celtic women singing. But the "G" was absent.
    I don't know what I would have gotten for the search: "Celtic women sining."

    (I have two windows open so I have them singing in round.)

    If you haven't figured it out, my taste in music covers a lot of genres.

    Another band that really gets me in the mood to write. This song is just all kinds of awesome.

    I'm a big Werner Herzog fan and Popol Vuh contributed to many of his albums. Kind of an eclectic, proggy type of folk music.
