    Agreed!

    Most of my music tends to be classic rock and metal such as Led Zep, Sabbath or Iron Maiden although I'm interested in a lot of genres. Undefinable bands such as Gungor (they're a Christian rock/alternative/sort of group) and things like the Cure, some orchestral soundtracky bits and occasionally a bit of electronic rock like Faunts.

  4. I listen to anything by Two Steps From Hell or Immediate Music. It really inspires my writing.

    I am of a sufficiently advanced age to have a very soft spot for the singer songwriter - male and female. IN my collection you will find Dylan, James Taylor, Kate Bush, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, and many others.
    I also love flamenco music (not of the mass produced tourist variety), sitar music, gregorian chant and a fair smattering of classical.
    I also have a taste for unusual voices - such as the late Yma Sumac.

    I like all of those (except I haven't heard of Gungor). There was a good Christian death/doom band from Australia called Paramaecium. Their album Exhumed of the Earth is a classic.

    Also, I saw Iron Maiden play a few weeks ago. Good show :)

    This week I've been listening to a lot of the old big band stuff - Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Count Basie, and so on, with a good helping of Dixieland Jazz. Last week, some old time blues/folk - Robert Johnson, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Son House, Leadbelly, etc. I love Spotify :)

    Yeah, some great stuff there. And how can you argue with music from a guy who had his guitar tuned by the devil himself?:devil:

    Dude Amon Amarth is like in my top 5 favorite bands. I think I've learned how to play just about every single one of their songs except for stuff from their new album, really don't care for it too much save for like three songs.

    I actually had a chance to see Iron Maiden live because my friend said he won tickets to see them and he was going to take me and my friend but it turns out he only won two tickets so I let my friend go because he's a much bigger fan than me. Sometimes I lie in bed crying in regret XD

    Oh and Two Steps from Hell is awesome too!


    This has to be one of my favorite songs lyrically speaking. Even though it involves creation theories like the Big Bang which I do not believe in, I still think it's well written

    Amon Amarth is a lot of fun in concert :)

    When they came out for their encore, one guy picks up a guitar and you hear the opening to Pursuit of Vikings. Crowd went wild.

    I listen mostly to metal (power, thrash, and traditional are my faves), but my ipod has everything from Muddy Waters and Chopin to Public Enemy and Brad Paisley.

    This is my favorite band.

    Opeth - good choice. I've loved their concerts.

    I like Blind Guardian quite a bit as well. Nightfall Over Middle Earth is a good CD :)

    Are you familiar with Agalloch? If not, try this one:

    I love Agalloch. They are actually my favorite band to write to. I can get lost in their music so easily and just focus on what I need to get done.

    Here's some other good/less-popular stuff...
