I'm in love with this angel named Tal Wilkenfeld!
...but she doesn't know it... :lol:

Enjoy!


Also look for this on YT:

Not a great list in my opinion, but at least they mentioned Hawkwind, which is not really a super well-known band outside the cult following they have.

I guess if they wanted to list rock bands that make songs about science or math subjects they'd never finish the article.

But somehow they mentioned music inspired by the Fibinacci sequence, and failed to mention Lateralus by Tool, which is one of the greatest technical music achievments of one of my favorite bands ever. The lyrics and shifting time signatures of this tune are based on the sequence, including the number of syllables in each line. And for all that it's not a clunky, contrived song; at first listen you appreciate it for it's musicality, and only later do you dive in to the math references in it.


Here's the wiki page describing the song: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lateralus_(song)

I guess it's not really a song about science and math so much as it's a song that uses math as a clever way to deliver the writers' own message.

Oh man, Tool. Don't even get me started :lol:. Found out about them in 2009 and was completely blown away. For a while, it was common practice to have their discography on my mp3 player (you know, just to have a wide choice). Still waiting for their new album, though I have to admit the lack of new stuff from them was one of the reasons that made me branch out to A Perfect Circle and Maynard's solo work, which are by no means bad , though they are not Tool. I'm worried that, by the time the album comes out (if it does), so much years will have passed that they will have lost their characteristic sound.

Given the band's past habit of pranking people, I sometimes wonder if they are just pulling our leg and don't really plan on releasing a new album lol.

As for their sound, they have changed a lot since teh early days and still sound like Tool, so I'm not worried about it. Maynard's voice isn't what it used to be, though, so we'll see how they handle that.

Some small change... maybe it really was a long winter.

That. Was. Good.

Will have to check out more of that band.

Most of the metal I've listened to lately is of the sludge/stoner/doom metal variety, bands like Colour Haze, Black Sabbath, and Sleep, but I like to listen to that sort of dragonslayer metal sometimes, too. Opeth is one of my favorites.

Two very different types of heavy metal.

Damn you, Urwumpe, I am now doomed to spending my next few hours listening to various awesome metal tunes!

Been on another BR kick lately, and I finally decided to delve into some of their acoustic work, some of which is hauntingly beautiful.

I didn't know this guy was even still around, and yet this is about 2 1/2 years ago, great performance.

I was not convinced that modern recreations of music from the Middle Ages were faithful and accurate reproductions, as I doubted the existence of an effective method (or at least, a still interpretable form) of notation. I was wrong. The Notation of Medieval Music. Quite fascinating.

One example of a composition by a "star" of the thirteen-hundreds...


Not surprisingly, I suppose, it has some similarity with Irish Folk music. I rather like it, really! :lol:
