1. What are some things I should work on to compose melodies in style to the instrumentals of Mozart? Ex. Storm, which is Ex. 2 on Passage to the Reaper and Amadeus, the song from which bodom stole the intro for Red Light In My Eyes Part II.

2. Beethoven - Anything theory related to composing some of the melodies like in Requiem (The 5th), and some of his other works.

3. What are some ways to resolve tension (dissonance) with a melody?

*On a side note, has anybody else noticed that a lot of Something Wild is completely ripped, note for note, from various composers and other bands? I love Bodom, but its kinda sad to find out what I thought was innovation in Red Light In My Eyes Part II was just pieces from Amadeus by Mozart and from Requiem (The 5th) by Beethoven. They also took some riffs directly from songs by Kalmah.


I guess you're not going to like Hatebreeder too much either...The chorus to Black Widow is straight from one of Mozart's works as well.

Also, the intro to Red Light in my Eyes Part II is Mozart's 25th. About :28 sec in, that's Mozart's Requiem Mass in D Minor, namely movement Confutatis. But it's not exact. If you listen, it's the bass carrying the melody while Janne has written his own chord progression. Originally in Confutatis, it's just A minor, the horns doing tonic to dominant (root to 5th).

Red Light in My Eyes Part I is Johann Sebastion Bach's Invention Number 13, FYI.
Db Dim 7 b9
So that would be...Db Fb Abb Cbb Ebb.
Fuckin' crazy...
