This week the Bards have invited long-time friend and listener Belghast to join them -- and to pick the topic for the show! Bel picked a fun and unusual theme: Rocking out with electric guitars. Do MMOs and rock mix? On this particular episode they do!
Episode 45 show notes
There were some good surprises in this show.
Thanks Syl for mentioning Viking Metal. I used to like/play a lot of Yngwie type stuff, but I did not know about the genre. I now have a new Pandora station - metal with flutes, who knew.
over eight years ago
Sorry for some reason I thought Syl was from Sweden and would therefore know who Yngwie (pronounced ing-vay here in the US) was by default - he was recently inducted into the Swedish Music Hall of Fame. He bought the idea of mixing classical pieces into metal with electric guitar to the masses and spawned a genre known as neoclassical metal.
Here is an instrumental and a Viking themed song from his mid 80s releases:
Sorry for the mixup.
