19:11 - moonflash I concur, this isn't the kind of "evolution" which was meant to get rid of the precursor, it's just another way of expressing the influence blues and rock had on metal. Similar to the way death "evolved" from thrash.
19:02 - Fritillaria oh no not again, metal didn't evolve from blues or rock, they just influenced it
19:01 - moonflash Well I'd consider them a very early form of heavy metal. Metal evolved from blues based hard rock and Led Zeppelin were one of the first bands to endeavour in heavier, more progressive areas which eventually became "heavy metal".
18:53 - Fritillaria Led Zeppelin ? was mostly hard rock, not metal I think
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.
Opera Diabolicus is the brainchild of composer David Grimoire and lyricist Adrian De Crow. The idea sprung to life when the two of them met randomly at a stage play of Umberto Eco's book The Name of the Rose at a theatre in Gothenburg the year 2006. Both of them were very intrigued by the story and they ended up talking about how interesting it would be to make a theatrical and dark metal musical based on that kind of a story. The conversation between them that took place in Gothenburg that bleak December night planted the seed that soon should grow to be the concept of Opera Diabolicus- The concept of combining the dark elements of music and theatre in alliance with musical excellency.
