Default Theatrical Rock/Metal

Hey Guys!

What you think about genres like theatrical rock or metal? It's just underground music or could be popular one day? U know, projects like "Charlemagne" by Christopher Lee.

Alice Cooper pioneered in this genre decades ago.

Kiss (rock)
Gwar (metal)
Meatloaf (rock)

Even Iron Maiden has a "Theatrical" element.

As for Alice, Billion Dollar Babies would be a good place to start.

I think he captured some of his best of theatrical stage show with reasonably sophisticated songs underneath the noise on Billion Dollar Babies.

Iron Maiden? I'm not saying you're wrong, but it's just too good to be true :P Following your train of thought, we can say that most of rock ballads have a "theatrical" elements.

Most ballads? *shrug* I don't know about that but what I'm saying is that IM aren't just up there playing their instruments, there's quite a bit of imagery and stage props going on at the same time.

Have you ever watched an Iron Maiden concert?



Come to think of it, Pink Floyd can fall into the "Theatrical Rock" department too.

Iron Maiden really delivers a powerful/intense vocal and stage performance, there should be a countless number of Death Metal/Metal etc. bands out there that carry the same theatrical signatures.

Yeah, you're right, but I rather think about "theatrical vocal". Something like this:
Igor Szpotakowski - Cardinal Richelieu - YouTube
