I'm just going to leave these here.

All of these are by a band called Demons & Wizards, a side-project for the guitarist of Iced Earth and the vocalist of Blind Guardian.

See if you can name their inspirations in the following songs.

The Gunslinger
Terror Train
The Crimson King

Unrelated to the above, but still performed by Demons & Wizards, guess the inspirations.
Beneath These Waves
Dorian
Solo on Essentials
I prepared irresistible phantasmal killer today... as a 4th level spell.

My work
The tier system in a nutshell:
[spoiler]Tier 6: A cartographer.
Tier 5: An expert cartographer or a decent marksman.
Tier 4: An expert marksman.
Tier 3: An expert marksman, cartographer and chef who can tie strong knots and is trained in hostage negotiation or a marksman so good he can shoot down every bullet fired by a minigun while armed with a rusted single-shot pistol that veers to the left.
Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.
Tier 1: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything and the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.[/spoiler]

It struck me that no one has mentioned "Fear of the Dark" yet, that song can never go wrong

As a general rule Iron Maiden is pretty hard to go wrong with.

I have written a Japanese version of it. Because everything is better with Japanese.

Live thread, live!

Kanon Wakeshima - Shinku no Fatarhythm (Fatalism) - Cello + creepy girl voice = win

Rayflower - Uragiri no nai sekai made - Very, very nice. Both the guitars and the vocal are very well-worked in this one.

My kanji knowledge fails me. =( - I dunno why, but I feel I should recognize this one for some reason.

Kotoko - Genzai no Requiem The PC opening for Prism Ark (AKA Prism Heart 2). Because you can never have too much Kotoko.

Don't know how much other people will agree with me, but I've always had a thing for
Nightwish - Dead to the world

And as for fan vocals, this girl is as good as they get

Anette, and yes, several times over. She's a decent singer, I have to give her that, but without Tarja it is not the same any more *sigh*

Actually, I liked Nightwish's ballads. I haven't sampled any of Anette's stuff. I stopped following after Tarja left.

And no, Kuro. The SDF-1 won't find that guy's nuts. The SDF-1 is too big. Even Chuck Norris would have problems roundhouse kicking those nuts. They must have a size AC bonus of +gazillion...
