Rec me any theatrical music you know of, preferably Metal. No genuine theater scores, just stuff that has the whole flashy, frantic (ie fast and lots of stuff going on) atmosphere. List is the only albums I know of like this.
A Night AT The Opera
|http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0Gs4xGw1Eg - watch this, too. Hilarious, especially if you hate commercial radio.|
|Dresden Dolls- The Dresden Dolls. Cabaret themed indie rock. Quirky vocals, piano and lyrics.|
Lacrimosa-echoes. Neo-classical meets modern rock
Arcturus- The Sham Mirrors and/or La Masquerade Infernale
Ulver-Shadows Of The Sun
Stolen Babies-There Be Squabbles Ahead. Cabaret themed metal-alt rock-pop
The Vision Bleak- The Deathship Has A New Captain. Theatrical based heavy metal.
|Ulver - Blood Inside|
Kreng - La Autopsie' ....
|I'll secong the Arcturus and Vision Bleak recs.|
Primordial's "To The Nameless Dead" is another very theatric album.
Also try Unexpect's "In a Flesh Aquarium" ; over the top, frantic, bizarre, dramatic and completely nuts. very unique and sounds like it may be what your looking for.
Lastly, although it may not be what your looking for, both Warning's "Watching From a Distance" and My Dying Bride's "The Dreadful Hours" are beautiful, dramatic pieces of doom.
