Music with Wings

My first little blog-post… and a small attempt to start collecting my little music suggestions rather than have them randomly appear and disappear in posts or comments. I’ll start with two sections, just to keep it simple: New and Old.

New comprises mostly music in the genres Symphonic Rock, EBM, Gothic music (of various persuasions) and similarly inspired.

Old comprises mostly Classical, Romantic and Baroque pieces.

Some, I suggest because they are great to work by, but there can be many reasons why I might make a suggestion. 😉

So let’s get started. (Please excluse the dearth of material at this early stage… I don’t intend to put a ton of time into this right now, but instead wish to collect as I go).


Assemblage 23 – Let Me be Your Armour
Okay, I admit, this one may not be very suitable for work… if you work in an office, as you may experience an irresistible urge to dance. I know I do. 😉

Assemblage 23 – Lullaby

Assemblage 23 – Horizon
If you want to know more about how amazing Assemblage 23 really is, read about him (Tom Shear – yes, it’s a one man act!):

Assemblage 23 – Skyquake (Voice of God Mix by Manhole Vortex Protocol X)

Assemblage 23 – 30kft
The song is amazingly well done. The video… well, I tend to agree with some of the comments registered there. While the incident shown is quite terrible and significant, I would prefer if it were not directly associated with this song, which has a different tenor. Unfortunately, the only other video that I found with this music seemed even less appealing. I would suggest just listening to the song.

Blutengel – Cry Little Sister

An old favorite… I mean, who hasn’t seen The Lost Boys, right? 😉

Blutengel – Beauty of Suffering

Blutengel – Any Chance

Combichrist – All Your Bass Belong to Us

Combichrist – Today I Woke to The Rain of Blood

Covenant – Call the ships to port

Covenant – We Stand Alone

Dimmu Borgir – Perfection or Vanity

Dimmu Borgir – Puritania

Elend – A Staggering Moon
Awesomely different! See more about the dark ambient, neoclassical band Elend (German for Misery): “Their music can be described as a combination of contemporary classical music and gothic.”

Elend – Winds Devouring Men
Turn off the lights, start writing, reading, drawing or just meditating… and Listen.

Epica – Solitary Ground

And the high quality vocal version…

Epica – Quietus

Epica – Feint

Epica – Consign to Oblivion “A New Age Dawns” Part III
(Very nice! Very symphonic!)

Epica – Cry For The Moon

One track, but more than one composition.

Evanescence – Lacrymosa
Also see the original Mozart version below!!

Evanescence – Good Enough

Lacuna Coil – Enjoy The Silence (Depeche Mode cover song)

L’ame Immortelle – Fallen Angel

Nightwish – Last of the Wilds

Razed in Black – Oh my Goth!

Switchblade Symphony – Clown

Switchblade Symphony – Rain

Switchblade Symphony – Dissolve

Switchblade Symphony – Cocoon

Switchblade Symphony – Ride
Very nice song!

Switchblade Symphony – Dollhouse (Razed in Black Mix)

Dance! Come on! You know you want to. 🙂

Switchblade Symphony – Rampid
I’m not sure why, but aside from global catastrophic risk… this reminds me of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks… I told you I don’t know why! 😉

Switchblade Symphony – Gutter Glitter

Theatre of Tragedy – Storm (Tornado mix)

In my opinion, this mix is even better than the original. And the video, while quite different than the music video (here) is fun.

Theatre of Tragedy – Musique

The 69 Eyes – Gothic Girl

The Restrosic – Tale of Woe

The Retrosic – Bloodsport

Tiamat – Dust is our Fare

Tristania – Deadlands (note the beautiful video!)

Tristania – Equilibrium

Tristania – Deadlocked

Tristania – A Sequel of Decay

Within Temptation – Mother Earth

Within Temptation – Stand My Ground

Wumpscut – Rush

Wumpscut – Deliverance

Wumpscut – Our Fatal Longing (time doubled version)

Zeromancer – Sinners International

Zeromancer – Doppelgänger I love you


Mozart’s Haffner-Serenade No. 7 D Major K 250, in particular, part IV. Rondo – Allegro!

Mozart Sinfonia Concertante in E-flat Major K.364 – 1st Movement – Allegro maestoso

All of Mozart’s Serenade in D Major K203 is a superb listen. But in the following video, we focus on the Andante in part II. Why? Well, because the video happens to be an interesting tangent! Laparoscopic surgery, yeah! Oh, I love the blogging freedom… 🙂

Mozart Requiem-Lacrimosa (with Latin and English lyrics)

Beethoven Concerto No. 4 – Part 1 by George Li

I hope you enjoyed the listen. Send me your suggestions in the comments below!
