She's a Doom metal fanatic - her favourite band is My Dying bride. - the bands she's most excited about so far are Suffocation, Marduk, and a few others. We went to see Possessed & Absu on Tuesday, She also loves Satyricon & Vital Remains - that kind of stuff.
She's very up for new music though as long as it's HEAVY. - So the other night we got drunk & played Youtube roulette, - picking a track or two by a few bands on the playlist just for fun.
Here are a few examples of her responses:
- Amaranthe - "ugh what is this shit..?"
Stuck Mojo - "Rap should NEVER be mixed with Metal" - my response " What about RATM" - she looked at me with disgust!
Arch Enemy - "Pretty awesome,... She's really good"
Equilibrium "Jesus,..... Are these guys for real??"
DevilDriver - " Yeah that's pretty good , that's not the real band though is it" (referring to the clouds over california video!)
Pain - " Oh no, another one of these" ( referring to the electronic nature of it , which I really like)
MoonSorrow - "ooh Yeah!, that's more like it"
Scar Symmetry - She turned off the moment the singer started singing
Grave - " Yeah, they're not bad. "
Vreid - "I could get into these"
Dying Fetus - just devil horns & a grin!
Anthrax - "Yeah, I want to see them, so gutted we only caught 2 songs before slayer last year"
So here's where you guys come in, - throw me some good heavy suggestions (either albums or the odd track) that I can include on the CD's because I could throw on a bunch of random songs here & there, but if there's particular stuff that people think might be representative of a band, that would be preferable I reckon.
P.S. - I'm asking you guys to do this because I'm familiar with a number of the bands playing but there's still quite a few I'm less au faix with.
I'll be sure to credit the 70,000 tons community on the CD.
Really looking forward to partying with you all in a few weeks.
