12:15 - Lokaeda Some folk instruments that are seldom used compared to others: Didgeridoo (can't think of a band right now), Mongol instruments such as morin khuur (Ego Fall, and a European band I can't recall the name of)
12:12 - Redn1ght Hah, Banjo... That's an interesting one.
12:11 - Lokaeda Accordion is quite conventional in the folk scene, just like mouth harp and a whole bunch of folk instruments. I'd say Theremin (Green Carnation has used it, live at least), maybe banjo too (Taake's song and What Mad Universe)
11:46 - Redn1ght What are some more unconventional instruments that have been used in Metal? Accordion comes close.
09:27 - Lokaeda Check the album "morbid fascination of death" by Carpathian Forest, there's a song with some sax on this one.
08:29 - Unhealer First use of sax in metal I can think of is on Pan.Thy.Monium albums. It had to be Swano.
08:10 - AngelofDeth you're right, a little weird to get used to but it works pretty dang well in that song. It needs to be stylized to metal rather than just sticking a weird 80s sax break down in the middle of a song
This band's profile is 'invisible', meaning that it's much less prominent on the site - either because it's incomplete, or maybe doesn't entirely fit MS format.
Fading Waves is a one-man post-metal band from Rostov-on-Don, Russia. Band was formed in 2008 by Alexey Maximuk. First EP named "Please Wait" was released by Slow Burn Records in 2010 as a part of two-way split CD with Ukrainian band Starchitect. First full-lenght album "The Sense Of Space" was released in October 2011 by Slow Burn Records.
Currently Alexey is searching for a vocalist for studio sessions. He quotes: "Nearest examples of what voice I need are Katatonia or Tesseract. Location isn't important - I'm ready for distant work."
