You can never go wrong with Cissy Strut. Nicely done.16th January 2011, 22:00 at 10:00 pm #157725
Difficult to say. Here’s my top 20 most played artists since 2004 from my lastfm account ( http://www.last.fm/user/humanure ). There’s a little of everything.
Jason Hayes (World of Warcraft Soundtrack)
Russell Brower, Derek Duke, Glenn Stafford (World of Warcraft Soundtrack)
Héroes del Silencio
The Beatles16th January 2011, 22:13 at 10:13 pm #157726
Thats quite an eclectic mix you have there.
Carcass and The Beatles in the same playlist.
I’ve just borrowed a Carcass cd from a friend of mine, (Heartwork) and it is
That and a load of Testament cd’s. It’s all good stuff. Fantastic riffage!16th January 2011, 22:29 at 10:29 pm #157727
@ paxjes, crikey almighty, never heard of half of that lot!
check out “sweet, sweet kisses” by duke special16th January 2011, 22:33 at 10:33 pm #157728
yeah, i can’t really listen to the same type of music all the time. I try to keep it balanced so that i don’t get bored.
And you cant go wrong with carcass. I’m a huge fan. My favourite album from them is Necroticism which is a bit more raw and technical than Heartwork. But all albuns are classic (all different from each other).16th January 2011, 22:49 at 10:49 pm #157729
@sbl on tour:
Duke special are ok. They were completely played to death on the radio at first. Every day it would be on about 4 or 5 times. That used to drive me nuts.
I have now resorted to bringing the iPod to work every day because of the rubbish thats on the radio.
I haven’t been told off for it yet.
I’ll be off to amazon to get a few more of their albums now. I know what you mean, I would listen to loud shouty stuff but Newton Faulkner, The Eagles, all that sort of stuff is all on there too. It’s all good stuff. Better than the usual stuff thats on the radio today.17th January 2011, 8:23 at 8:23 am #157730
Well seeing as I’m having a quiet morning at work, I may as well.
I pretty much listen to 60’s Rock ‘n Roll, so lots of The Beatles, the Stones, Jimi Hendrix, but I’m also a big Oasis fan, and quite like Blur, Travis, Coldplay, Radiohead, Nirvana, the Pixes, Dire Straits and a wee bit of Metallica. Throw in the Foo Fighters, U2, David Bowie, and when the need arises some old school Soul, thats about all I lsiten to.17th January 2011, 15:27 at 3:27 pm #157731
Prog ‘n Rock! That song is simply amazing!
Good taste man! Never thought I’d find someone else who likes Cynic on F1F! Glad to see that Death is the top 3 band in your list – my old username used to be “The Philosopher”… I guess you’ll recognize it :)
Anyway, I don’t have “favourite” bands or songs, it’s just that sometimes I’m listening more to a band than another. So I’ll just plop the bands on my Winamp playlist :P
Hideaki Kobayashi (Phantasy Star Online soundtrack)
Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy series soundtrack)
Quo Vadis (one of their songs, “On The Shores of Ithaka”, is the most perfect song I’ve ever heard)
Theatre of Tragedy
Right now I’m more into Dream Theater (favourite songs being “A Change of Seasons”, “Metropolis pt.I – The Miracle and the Sleeper”, “The Ytse Jam”, “The Glass Prison”, “Scene Seven: I. The Dance of Eternity”, among others) and Opeth (favourite songs being “Ghost of Perdition”, “Windowpane”, “Blackwater Park”, “Bleak”, “Forest of October”, “The Apostle in Triumph”, and others). Also Megadeth is one of the most special bands for me, specialy after I’ve seen them live last year :P
Anyway, great idea for a post! Life without music is just pointless.17th January 2011, 18:15 at 6:15 pm #157732
If you’re getting carcass i must warn you that their first 2 albums “reek of putrefaction” and “symphonies of sickness” have very bad sound quality and are very aggressive. Download the albums first and if you like, then buy them. So if you’re hopping to get something more like heartwork i’d say get “swansong” or “necroticism”
Ainda bem que ha pessoas que falam portugues aqui hehe.
Cynic and Death are two of my favourite bands ever. Can’t wait for the new one from cynic.17th January 2011, 18:48 at 6:48 pm #157733
I listen to the same artists all the time. My personal favorites are U2, Dave Matthews Band, Bruce Springsteen, The Clash, AC/DC, and a new favorite The Wrens. For the most part I go through periods where I listen to one band heavily then rotate to another.18th February 2011, 9:58 at 9:58 am #157734
Definitely the Hold Steady. If you haven’t heard the weekenders you definitely should make a point of it! :D
Apart from them, I’m having a Arctic monkeys thing at the moment.18th February 2011, 22:42 at 10:42 pm #157735
