      Server Move   09/13/2018

      I (Dries007) have recently taken over as main developer and server admin. This involved moving servers to reduce cost. It's likely there will be some more downtime in the future but most  things should be sorted by now. This forum is in dire need of replacement as the software is quite old and can't be easily updated. If you wish to discuss or stay updated, join our discord: https://invite.gg/terrafirmacraft. The forum will remain available to read, but will be locked in the future, when a new system is setup. The forum and wiki are now ad free. If you'd like to contribute to keeping it that way, you can do so via paypal or patreon.

      ATTENTION Forum Database Breach   03/04/2019

      There has been a breach of our database. Please make sure you change your password (use a password manager, like Lastpass).
      If you used this password anywhere else, change that too! The passwords themselves are stored hashed, but may old accounts still had old, insecure (by today's standards) hashes from back when they where created. This means they can be "cracked" more easily. Other leaked information includes: email, IP, account name.
      I'm trying my best to find out more and keep everyone up to date. Discord (http://invite.gg/TerraFirmaCraft) is the best option for up to date news and questions. I'm sorry for this, but the damage has been done. All I can do is try to make sure it doesn't happen again.

Not sure about all the styles definitions, but:

 

Accept and U.D.O., mostly old albums.  Also Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Helloween and a bunch of others.

 

Thanks for your favorite band names, will check them out.

Judas Priest   :)   Awesome band!    I would say I prefer them to iron maiden but all of them are great bands.

 

 

 

 

 

Rammstein (German)

 

 

Listened to Rammstein before love the band, and Sabaton even made a cover of one of their songs called

Feuer frei. Rammstein is awesome especially when performing live in my opinion.   :)

Rush :)  their old stuff is heavier - new stuff is more "progressive"(Perhaps more rock than heavy metal but I don't care they're a great band)

Try older stuff, from albums "Caress of Steel" or "Rush"; or if you're feeling you want a story (Led. Zep style), go for 2112 (20 mins of music in 6? parts is one coherent story)

Oh, right, Rush. Had listened them some time ago, have few discs somewhere :) Thanks for reminding and albums advice :)

 

Sabaton. Amazing. I enjoy tasting music that other people love, but usually it doesn't fit me, people are different :) . But Sabaton is great!

It combines glorious heroic style (which is present in e.g. Manowar songs, but is overused there. And in old Nightwish.), great rhythm (which invites to shake head), frequent changes of style - melodic guitar solos, beating sawing (idk the term, when guitars make rhythmic zhig-zhig sounds :), like buzzing solos), strong vocals fully fit into the music and sometimes without music, persuasive but not excessive drums. It also feels like it is something new, i.e. the sound doesn't repeat all usual heavy metal templates, despite surely it is heavy metal.

And I realized I have heard their Prima Victoria already, but as a cover by Van Canto.

 

And since most of the songs are about war, they would be a good background for war games. :)

 

Btw, EastAPOLO, just wondering, considering your signatire ("It's fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure. - Bill Gates"), have you also heard about "survivorship bias" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Survivorship_bias#In_the_military). If you have not, I hope it will be interesting for you. I liked that military example.

If you have not, I hope it will be interesting for you. I liked that military example.

 

Personally I haven't heard of it (survivorship bias) but it looks pretty cool especially the military example when comparing it to Bill Gates. I love reading about World War 2 or wars in general and learning about them and the individuals involved and what they did. Mostly why I like Sabaton and as a Sabaton fanboy I am glad you like them.   :)  I have listened to Nightwish and Manowar and I agree that Sabaton changes their music a bit with unique sounds and not many repeats taking inspiration from other bands. If you listen to their Carolus Rex Album they have such a nice choir/symphonic mix I think its called and it sounds beautiful, I think you would like it.

 

Your idea about their music being used as a background for war games sounds awesome! especially that Nightwish and Manowar mix that they have is great!  :)

 

Oh and by the way I listened to Van Canto the Primo Victoria cover and some of their other songs like Metallica Master of Puppets and I think they nailed it! It was awesome. I got to go to a Sabaton, Delain, and Nightwish concert (3 bands in one concert) which believe it or not Sabaton stole the show I mean it turned into a mosh pit when Sabaton came and you couldn't move where you were standing barely at that point. Of course Nightwish had the best effects and symphonic music in that concert in my opinion then Sabaton and Delain considering they were the main band and Sabaton/Delain were support bands.   :)  So I hope to go to a Van Canto concert one day as well and have a great experience and sorry for my rambling I talk too much lol.     :D

 

 

 

PS: Have you seen this?   Such a good song by Manowar in my opinion.  m/ !!!!!!  :)

Deep Purple.  Smoke on the Water and Highway Star were some of the first songs to be called Heavy Metal.  They and Black Sabbath were the reason they coined the term.

I used to listen to heavy/death metal a lot (e.g. Arch Enemy and Amon Amarth) but in the last few years i've mellowed somewhat. Indeed, Rush is amazing. So is Iron Maiden and Blind Guardian.

Personally I like to listen to heavy metal a lot but sometimes some orchestral music is good so I can take a break sometimes, but either way I love both heavy metal and orchestral music.

Maybe you would enjoy Battlelore and Rhapsody of Fire. 

 

I think it's almost impossible to keep playing tons of heavy metal after marriage but if some of you manage it, let me know your secret :D

I'm the same way, I play classical music in my car, but listen to all kinds of heavy metal at home.

 

Favorite Band by far is Nile. Egyptian themed death metal, but the band is from the USA. Very cool stuff if you like extreme music.

I also love Iron Maiden, Metallica, Suidakra (German), and Tool to name a few others.

 

Maybe you would enjoy Battlelore and Rhapsody of Fire.

Not married myself, but if you have a man-cave or garage, it could become your heavy metal haven? My girlfriend does not tolerate my music one bit, so I feel your pain.
