    Now that I've been listening to The Algorithm more, I had to come back and thank you again. This band is really good!

    I've listened to Images and Words many times! I like them too! And yeah, the vocals especially are very melodic. The singer has a great voice!

    Tiluland sounds awesome! I take it that power metal is often quite melodic?

    I never said I don't like lead vocals. Sorry for the misunderstanding. Some of my favourite musicians have clear vocals, like The Voidz, Whitey, King Gizzard and ISON. It's just that currently I'm searching for instrumental bands.

    Like you said that there are bands where the vocals are like another instrument is exactly what I like too! Do you know Holy Fuck? They have a very interesting style, and they have a vocal style I really like. Here's an example of how their vocals are part of the music, instead of sitting on top of and drowning everything else. It's also a very pretty song!

    Edit: And it's not like I'm trying to avoid Finnish musicians. The way I discover music rarely leads to Finnish bands.....

    Sounds very interesting! Is there a better way to access the whole album, than Youtube videos?

    Lament of Innocence is the only Castlevania I played (aside from a little bit of SotN). Never finished it, but I always loved the music in it and wanted to share!

    I'm liking The Algorithm! A very unique sound! Metal combined with electronic sounds, and it's instrumental ♥ Digging through their Bandcamp, I think I found a new great band, I love their sound!...

    I know Nightwish (I'm a Finn myself, after all :D). I've never really listened to them, though. I think Ghost Love Score might change that! That symphony orchesta is awesome! Looks like Wintersun...

    Looks like Wintersun is Finnish too. I like what I'm hearing! Really like their style. Also, long songs are always a plus in my book! Could I interest you to Inter Arma's song The Cavern.

    Embarrassing to admit, that despite being a Finn myself, I've listened very little to Finnish artists.

    I don't mind songs with singing, but I'm indeed looking for instrumental bands specifically. Vocals are fine, like a choir, but not a lead singer.

    Edit: I just realised I didn't have the Virtuaverse soundtrack, so I bought it!

    Sorry, I guess I worded that weird. But they don't have to be Japanese composers (though I'm listening to After All now, I'm really liking this!). I just seem to enjoy Japanese music a lot. But...

    But they don't have to be Japanese composers (though I'm listening to After All now, I'm really liking this!). I just seem to enjoy Japanese music a lot. But Western bands are perfectly fine!

    Thank you for the recommendations. I'll dig into Motoi Sakuraba's music more!

    Edit: Oh man, he's one of the composers for Souls games!
    Edit2: Ooh, he made the whole OST for the first Dark Souls.

    Little disclaimer: I posted this on reddit too!

    I love melodic music and often prefer instrumental bands. So far I only know Demetori. (Don't judge it by the anime pictures if you're not into that.) They make covers of music from a game series, so it's bound to be melodic. And they're really good! Here's another great one from them. They make some lighter stuff, too.

    Another example: The Black Mages. Again, they make video game covers. But Nobuo Uematsu is a member of the band, so they're awesome too!

    One more example is Akira Yamaoka, but his style is more like rock.

    Are there any melodic but instrumental bands out there? Progressive style is always a bonus.

    This is what I do with my music collection. Granted it's not quite as impressive at around 100k songs and only 1TB (I convert everything to mp3@320kbps). Got quite a bump from my recent interest...

    If I'm browsing the web and I see something I like, I download it and watch it after it's in the collection. If I really like it, I'll buy it to compensate the creator

    This is what I do with my music collection. Granted it's not quite as impressive at around 100k songs and only 1TB (I convert everything to mp3@320kbps). Got quite a bump from my recent interest with classical music. Some composers were really prolific. I buy new stuff from many of my favourite artists, but there's so much music I want to hear, I'd quickly go broke if I bought everything. Still have some mixed feelings about it, though.

    I don't care for streaming, I much prefer having the files on hand so I can stick them on whatever device I have without worrying about them disappearing. Used to have automatic cloud backup, but a 4TB external is enough to hold everything important, so I thought it was bit of a waste.

    Here's the Steam page. Interestingly, it's published by Blood Music, who are also a music label. They've published music from a lot of synthwave artists like Perturbator and Gost, and they also distributed King Gizzard's open source album Polygondwanaland.

    I will admit I mainly wanted to share this because it features music from one of my favourite artists, Master Boot Record (also on Blood Music!). They make awesome synth-infused metal. Here's their latest album from last year, Internet Protocol. You might be able to tell that they're really into retro computer stuff. (I wouldn't be surprised if they used floppies ran through a distortion plugin to make some of their guitar sounds!) They also make covers of classic game tunes that they put on their free WAREZ album.
