The purpose of this thread is to share music. I will try to post daily and encourage you to do the same, but you don't have to, if you just want to post a song or two every once in a while that's fine too

Epic Tolkien-inspired black metal.

I would like to share with you all this beautifully serene piece of music from the game War of Rights. To my ears, at least, this is a phenomenal track, and I cannot recall the last time that music has ever made me feel as viscerally emotional as this piece has. I do not exaggerate even a little when I say that I almost cried upon sitting down and listening to it for the first time. I am quite not sure why it is that the piece speaks to me so much, or how to describe just what it makes me feel. I suppose it could best be likened to picrelated Gondola; a feeling of complete and total peace and tranquility.

Are there any pieces from OSTs which have made you truly /feel/, anon?

A thread for music from the southern U.S., from the 1800s up until the 1960s, give or take. Negro music, work songs, gospel songs, religious hymns, ragtime and early blues. Old-time Appalachian and mountain music are also welcome.

This music interests me a lot for many reasons. There is so much emotion in this music, the raw and unfiltered aesthetic really resonates with me. These were real people with real problems and they dealt with these problems through their music. Some of the religious recordings, especially from the black churches, feel hypnotic. It's like the music puts you in a trance.
Another thing is the mystery that surrounds many of these songs. Most, if not all, of these performers weren't performers in the professional sense. Most of them were farmers, countrymen, laborers or workhands. Just everyday normal people like you and I. Many of these would have faded into obscurity if not for the likes of Alan Lomax and his father, who set out to record this music in the early 20th century. Even so, little is known about a lot of these musicians and some may never be identified.
Here are some of my favorites:

This thread is to share and discuss non-conventional music. Music that most people wouldn't call music
Here's a few discussion points to start conversation:
>1. How about we start by discussing what is music in the first place?
Imo it's sound. Like, literally any sound is music. Even audiobooks
>2. Does "non"-music have any value?
Yes, because in my opinion it "expands our horizons" on what music can be. I think having preconceived notions of what music has to be is a very awful and limiting thing, and having these subjectively bizarre takes on it might help pushing away these walls that would otherwise weight on less "weird" musicians
>3. Do you listen to it? If so, how is it different from listening to more typical music?
I sometimes listen to noise, to drown out other sounds I don't like, otherwise I rarely listen to this type of music more than once. But sometimes I might feel like listening to something weird, to experience something new

Here's some stuff I'm aware of:
Noise, the obvious
The opposite
free jazz

When I think of unconventional music, Swans are always the first band that comes to mind.

Daughters as well, very interesting band.

Death Grips, of course!
(This song makes me feel like I could strangle a bull.)

Charles Manson's music, along with The Manson Family Recordings, are very unique tunes. I showed the song "Ride Away" to a friend and he said it was the worst song he's ever heard lol.

Stalaggh/Gulaggh are a terrifying mammoth of uncomfortable noises. Not much is known about them; apparently they're a Dutch/Belgian collective of musicians(?) that have recorded a handful of albums. They incorporate the screams of mental patients and "damaged" women/children in their work, layering it over noise and instrumentation. It's hard to verify all of this but I think the music speaks for itself.

Whitehouse is a good place to start for power electronics and noise. Another artist group is Consumer Electronics.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NemUDI9N-I This album.. one of my favorite thrash albums of all time really. It brings me back to the days when all I did was just listen to thrash in my room and watch anime. Those days were kind of sad but they were nice too.

This Saturday will be the 10th anniversary of Ronnie James Dio's death. Is there anything 22chan can do to celebrate his music? Perhaps a cytube stream for some of his albums.

Incipit Satan by Gorgoroth is such a good album. One of my favorite metal albums of all time. It really feels like what black metal is supposed to be, threatening music. The songs on this album are so powerful. It really feels like the soundtrack to the worlds destruction.

This is a great album, very obscure band. It's a past band of Tobias Forge, better known today as Papa Emeritus or frontman of the band Ghost. If you like rock/metal with nice vocals then you should definitely check this album out.

ITT some songs are popular because they are good and, sometimes, there are songs that you have no clue why the masses love. In this thread, we are going to talk about songs you hate that everyone else loves. The song doesn't have to hit song necessarily. I'll start.
"Love Bites" by Def Leppard is one of the worst examples of a forced power ballad from the 80s for many reasons. One obvious reason is that Hysteria is one of the worst albums of all time. Songs like "Love Bite" showed that Def Leppard sold out. Instead of appealing to the hard rockers of the time like they did with Pyromania, Def Leppard decided to appeal to people who are fans of pop. This is a really bad match for their singer Joe Elliot because frankly is not that great of a singer. Joe relies heavily on studio magic and, it shows when he sings along in the song. In "Love Bites," Elliot tries to be thoughtful and sensitive but, he only comes across as cheesy. He almost sounds like he is crying it is pathetic that this song was a number 1 hit song. The band doesn't play anything noteworthy and, the singer is intolerable. Most people love this song and the album Hysteria, while I couldn't hate the song and album more.

Hipsters must be retarded because Coldplay has sold tens of millions of records.
Imagine Dragons is the blandest band I've ever heard. The sales figures for this song scared me.


I honestly think normies just listen to what the media tells them to listen to.

I've always hated the song "Somebody That I Used to Know" by Gotye. It was yet another hipster garbage track that managed to hit it big in the early 2010s. Just look at the stupid album art. What exactly is great about the song? The lyrics are dopey and bewildered about the breakup. It is pathetic. The vocals and instrumentally are nothing to write home about. It managed to be certified 14x platinum in America alone.

That's a nice song. I prefer the orchestra version, because it feels more intense, but there are various good ones
It's sad how people overhype it imo. Today's communication is often very little about the substance and a lot about clickbait bullshit

Post obscure music
If it has a vid on youtube it needs to be < 10.000 views
Bonus points if < 1000

Let me start:
Instrumental hip hop
prog rock?
"psycho-acoustic clarinet"

The Baseball Project is a peculiar rock band. I stumbled upon them completely by chance a few months ago. All their songs are about baseball or baseball-related things and most of them have a weirdly melancholic vibe.



I was wondering why it sounds like some band i've heard before, but i figured it was an obscure collage band. Turns out their actually related to REM, being a splinter band with some REM members>>957

Some people like to listen to relaxed jazzy hip hoppy stuff when studying/working, however for me ambient is where it's at. It's even less distracting but still fills the silence nicely

I got these two (and many more) from the "arctic ambient" /mu/ chart, and I think it's rather nice so here it is
Sometime I ought to check the ambient one too


Adam Wingard's score that he composed for his remake of the Blair Witch is really good. Very spooky dark ambient stuff.

Who cares if it's intentional or not, it sounds fucking awesome.


That's just the first song, which is really just an intro. Listen to at least the song after that. And yeah, I think it's on purpose
