Hi, shadowmac here - a brand new member. I am into many different styles of music from eclectic new-age (Mannheim Steamroller) to classical / symphonic to Celtic / folk (Great Big Sea, Wolfstone) to metal.
I listen to metal the most, particularly metal that is melodic coupled with heavy rhythms.
My favorite bands (I have 3 - all tied for first place) run the spectrum from IRON MAIDEN to RUSH to ASIA.
My favorite vocalists are DC Cooper, Bruce Dickinson, Ray Alder, Jorn Lande, Lance King, Dio, Corey Brown, Roy Kahn, Rob Rock, John Wetton and early Geoff Tate.
I am a musician in a band (HEDDA) influenced by these artists as well as music from 70's Prog to today's metal including (but not limited to): DREAM THEATER, QUEENSRYCHE, KAMELOT, MASTERPLAN, AVANTASIA, SAVATAGE, NOCTURNAL RITES, KANSAS, STYX, GEORGE LYNCH and FIREWIND to name just a few and I'm always on the look-out for the next awesome band.
I look forward to having some great discussions here.
