The sparse differences in my musical taste have yielded insight that symphonic and vocal talent have been born in Germany more recently than the Classical Era.
I have actually met and hung out (And grudgingly traded flatcaps) with Angela Gossow (Singer of Arch Enemy) and she is more well educated than I give most people credit for, even if she dresses a bit funny for a girl and plays guitar rather well, in spite of it never being used on any of the band's albums. I guess one day, should I be in the proper region, I could still get into their concerts, but that requires that "free time" stuff that I have little of left these days.
An interesting fact I have learned however is that when showing up at a classic car show in a retirement neighbourhood, doing so with a bunch of nubile young women and playing black metal is apparently some sort of Taboo. Florida, as usual, is the strangest place I have ever been.
