The hard rock Finnish band Nightwish uses the 'Tubular Bells' opening theme in the song 'Feel For You' from their last album 'Century Child'. The album is very popular in Germany and Austria. MP3.
(Thanks, Christophe Gevrey)

It also seems that you have many different influences. Could you name the biggest of them? I know, it's always difficult, but maybe you could also find the nearest companion to your band?
I like to listen to film music (Vangelis, Kitaro, J. Horner, Mike Oldfield, etc. ) [...]

There are no credit anywhere on the Nightwish CD.

Too bad.

This must be one of the best metal songs I've ever heard! I've been searching for something like this for long time, and in vain hope I bought some records by Blind Guardian and some others. I like metal music, but everything else (lyrics, attitudes) are incrediby childish, popularistically satanistic, etc, so I have mostly been avoiding them... I must get this album!
Anybody can suggest more stuff like this?
Is there any more extraordinary metal music, with some creativity in other areas that lyrics and arrangement of powerchords and distortions ( experimental, mature, non-satanistic metal ? i'm really asking too much, aint I? )

Why do everybody insist so much on being typical? And why some people cant ge the fact into their heads that comments are supposed to be short and related, and forums are for discussions?
:/  oh, well

Where do ypu people hear the Tubular Bells tune?

In the beginning there's this guitar tune and then the strings. None of them sound like the exact TB tune (in my opinion) although they are a bit similar.

I have to agree with Markus here - it sounds to me like it may be Tubular Bells inspired, but it doesn't use quite the same notes. Actually, the C D B B part of that riff is more like Sentinel than the original Tubular Bells. It's like the same notes, but in a different order and different key.

AC/DC - Hells Bells ?

->stolen at Mike

Judy Garland - Somewhere over the Rainbow ?

doesn't she mention "Moonlight" there?

-> stolen at Mike

and the next "suspected" tune would be "Liar" by Helloween then, it's on their new CD "Rabbit don't come easy".

I've put up a snipnet of the part which will cause "TB theme stolen"-shoutings (again) here

File will be upp for about 2 weeks.


Have a nice weekend,

dkay
