    Hi all,

    Does anyone know any songs or music (classical music especially) with duet lines ( guitar or strings) similar to the ones we can hear on City of Evil? (I mean pretty close to the ones on city of evil, in terms of atmosphere)?

    What do you mean by duet? Like playing back 'n' forth or 2 parts equaling 1?
    I don't know any songs, maybe Chopin Nocturn.
    I heard in an interview a7x writes in D minor. Maybe not just D.

    Pretty much 85% of the stuff by A7X themselves. Check out Nightmare album :)

    I've limited knowledge on other bands, but you can also check out Black Veil Brides. They're the closest i can think of to the CoE vibes. Other bands with decent harmonizing duos include Bullet for my Valentine, Trivium(though not as heavy), Iron Maiden of course, any pretty sure many more.

    Hi William, I mean harmonized lines. ( The chorus of the wicked end is a good example).
    Haven't heard that song in a long time, so good. A7x was known for dueling guitars and blazing solos. I have an idea of how it's done (written), but I don't know or can't think of any other songs/bands ATM (at the moment). I like to listen to other styles of music and imagine it could all be done on guitar(s). I'm a bit confused right now, so maybe my conversation is off. Sorry about that

    Hey Williams and Muz , thank a lot for taking time to answer me.

    The bands you mentionned were already on my mind. There is also Queen, Megadeth and Boston.
    And as I'm writting the name of those bands i'm realizing that Queen's sound might be the closest one to City Of Evil. I mean there is something "wild" in this sound.

    But I'm pretty sure there might be some classical music composers that have similar sound. (I mean that "wild" sound we can hear on COE).

    Cacophony and Iron maiden have a bunch of harmony stuff. It's also pretty common in classical stuff, I personally really like vivaldi, bach, beethoven, mozart, holst and John Williams

    Well the harmonized section on Bohemian Rhapsody solo has something very similar to city of evil's solos. I don't really know how to describe it. I would think of something very aerial, soft. That's what I'm looking for.

    Bach, I haven't heard much classical music (knowingly). When I listened, it was pleasant. Heard stuff and didn't look to see what I was hearing...... I'm going to listen to Fishbone now

    I like that Chopin Nocturn and I think Vivaldi. I don't know much or names. Listened to less than 20 hours

    Thanks Williams,

    Yes those are the guys I listen when I want to hear harmonized music but i wonder if there are modern classical composers writting that kind things.

    Yeah that's cool, maybe film scores ( music from movies ) probably horror type movies have aspects of classical. Just a guess.
    I heard like almost 2 hours of Beethoven a week or two ago, I was in awe on some of it. Was stressed out at the time, it had this calming refocus type effect on me. Really nice, I would for sure like to hear modern compositions. I myself kind of prefer the stuff that's a bit melancholic and hopeful. I don't really like it when they get too loud with the volume swells.
    Maybe you got a recommendation for me?

    I just thought, it can't be classical if it's modern. :unsure:
    Maybe it's labeled Neo Classical
