Once upon a time, if I heard a dance beat (or classical music for that matter) I would have been "Fuck that shit" but as I have grown older I have grown to like the mixes, black metal for instence.
I heard Bach's "Toccata and Fugue in D minor" today and it is mind blowing, this music was made somewhere between 1703 and 1707..............just mind blowing. I just kept waiting for "Shaggrath" to start screaming!!
Anyway (back on topic), a couple weeks ago I got Panic, Sky Fell's EP and whilst not quite in the realm of Bach and Mozart, they do bring an interesting collision of musical styles, that being dance and metal.
While I'm sure they are not the first, it's definatley the best I have heard so far!! think Fear Factory's abomination "Remanufacture".
I think Panic, Sky Fell are well worth a listen, if you don't like it, just delete it but it does have an interesting mix and we all know someone who likes a little dance with their metal.
you can download the EP for free here http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mediafire.com%2F%3Ff9jixz9cnoudsxa&h=_AQFToH3lAQFthsUyaAxwUUG6xLxes8ENxFAydtar5tD6tg .
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
