    Dutch music

      So, I don't really understand why this is here now, but yea.

       

      And don't you think it should be Netherlands except of Netherland... 

       

      "Dutch gamers" would also be correct though.

       

      So yea, any more active dutch members here? There were a while back, but I think they all disappeared lol. *feels lonely and like I'm talking to myself* 

       

       

      Hmm... to give this a senseful subject, I'd like to talk about the dutch music.

       

      What do you think of it? Any dutch bands you like?

       

      I personally like the Golden Earring, Di-rect, All Missing Pieces and Textures.

       

      And maybe some others I'm forgetting =P

       

      I especially like the Textures, they're a kind of death metal band and really good imo. They recently got a new singer, here's a live vid of them: [url:30tuh4m0]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6UjU3lBX-4[/url:30tuh4m0]

            maybe they create a german forum and get rid of this language hopping. when i went to the german forum (check language german) i can see all the post, but if i want to see an english thread from there i'm not authorized!

            i think it's a good idea...

              I don't know too much about dutch music but if they do metal then their fine by me.

                I think the only Dutch band I know is Di-rect, and even then, I don't know many songs by them.

                • Re: Dutch music

                  I think you guys know the Golden Earring, they have been popular in America for a little while. And... lol you guys know 'Good God' by Anouk from GHWT, she's also dutch. But it's awful imo D:

                   

                  I also forgot Destine, they're pop-punk and pretty cool.

                  Well, it can be a good idea, but then I think it should be a kind of User Group where you're automaticly a member of.

                    I was looking at a list of Dutch musicians and didn't notice Golden Earring or Anouk. But just like with Di-rect, I don't know many songs by them.

                        Yeah, but the band is American. I don't think it should count if only half of the band members came from the Netherlands.

                            • Re: Dutch music

                              Ich verstehe kleine Deutsch. Ist das gut genug?

                               

                              Anyway, I don't know that much. Ich bin Duetsche Zwei. Not to mention the year has only begun. I also don't know many real Niederlander Rock bands. I am also enjoying my abomination of a speech sliding inbetween Deutsch und Englisch whenever I feel like it.

                               

                              I DO know German Rock Groups, though. Tokio Hotel sind sehr toll, ja? I don't think a lot of people realize they're German, even though many of their songs are in in English. It kinda bugs me.

                               

                              Also, I am trying to get in on a German Trip this summer using the GAPP program. Ist es eine gute Idee? I think so. Was meinst du?

                                  Congratulations, you've just misconstrued my entire post. Let me specify, I understand a small bit of GERMAN. I don't know any Dutch. Ich kann nicht gut Deutsch sprechen. I'm still learning, and I did NOT confuse Dutch with Deutsch. I know the difference well enough.

                                    Isn't Within Temptation a Dutch band?  I also believe I saw somewhere that the Venga Boys were Dutch.

                                        Yeah, I just looked it up, and they are. So that's two more Dutch bands I know.

                                          I didn't know they were German until this week. In German, we were looking at different people (since we are currently learning how to say different jobs and such), and one of the pictures was the singer of Tokio Hotel. We all thought it was a girl though...

                                              Yes, they are. So is Epica. I forgot to mention them because I don't really like them, I'm not into Gothic so yea (although a girl in my class says they're not Goth but whatever  )

                                                Epica has done a few shows around here.  The lead singer is gorgeous.

                                                            anyway, most of the popular Dutch bands are also the worst ones... (except for Golden Earring)

                                                            but we do have some really good stuff here. for example, Textures, really good technical metal band, kinda reminded me of Meshuggah here and there. Also, The Gathering is pretty notable, i think theyve had some worldwide succes, anyone here who knows them?

                                                            Then theres also smaller bands that i really dig, mostly doom music, bands like Izah, Toner Low and Judas' Wolf

                                                                                              I'm Dutch too, and I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Heidevolk yet. They're a folk metal band and pretty good imo. (:

Listening to a few songs of them now, they're indeed pretty good.

                                                                                                    So, I don't really understand why this is here now, but yea.

                                                                                                     

                                                                                                    And don't you think it should be Netherlands except of Netherland... 

                                                                                                     

                                                                                                    "Dutch gamers" would also be correct though.

                                                                                                     

                                                                                                    So yea, any more active dutch members here? There were a while back, but I think they all disappeared lol. *feels lonely and like I'm talking to myself* 

                                                                                                     

                                                                                                     

                                                                                                    Hmm... to give this a senseful subject, I'd like to talk about the dutch music.

                                                                                                     

                                                                                                    What do you think of it? Any dutch bands you like?

                                                                                                     

                                                                                                    I personally like the Golden Earring, Di-rect, All Missing Pieces and Textures.

                                                                                                     

                                                                                                    And maybe some others I'm forgetting =P

                                                                                                     

                                                                                                    I especially like the Textures, they're a kind of death metal band and really good imo. They recently got a new singer, here's a live vid of them: [url:1xnscrov]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6UjU3lBX-4[/url:1xnscrov]
