Just one ingredient is enough to change the structure of everything.
How it sounds
Like Heavy Metal and Glam Metal, with the keyboard being more exhibited than the singer and/or guitarist.
Basically like Heavy Metal or Glam Metal along with Electronic Rock and with the synths dominating the compositions.
Wherever you look in a Metal band, the key is to be more figurative.
Why listen to it
Classic compositions of this kind have come out, proving that Synthesizer can do great things, under the right fingers.
It may seem a little florid to a medium or middle-aged metalhead and sometimes it is.
Probably it may even look overly stylish and very polished.
Where we meet it
Europe and USA
When did it start
The early 80s
Who are the pioneers
Perhaps its first use in Heavy Metal could be considered Black Sabbath‘s 1973 album “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath”.
And Dio with the song “Rainbow In The Dark” in 1983 uses Synthesizer.
A milestone, however, in its widespread use, is considered to be Iron Maiden’s 1986 album, “Somewhere in Time“.
You have to listen
Arcadea, Synthphonia Suprema, Neon Synthesis, Volkor X, Keygen Church, Obsidian Kingdom.
Days of glory
The 80’s with several hits mainly in America.
It is not clear, since it is associated with many types of metal.
MTV’s excessive love essentially forced the bands to hunt for listeners in a more general field.
The result was a search for mediocre compositions that were acceptable to all.
What is it confused with
Electronicore, Digital hardcore, Neue Deutsche Harte, Dungeon Synth
How do you describe it to an irrelevant
Synths, synths, and synths again to such an extent that you can also do headbanging…
You do not even know what this is? Metal with melodica! With that, that you used to play carol when you were young!
