So what music is everyone listening to?

#1 Postby Wotan_statt_yahweh » Mon May 09, 2011 9:09 pm

I wanna know what music motivates you in your everyday lives? Be it what blasts from your stereo while you lift weights or the songs on your mp3 player that you listen to while you run. How about what you listen to as you relax reading a book? My list of musicians is made up of many genres of music that arent just bands that I think sound good. The sound, their ideals and the musicianship all play a part in my everyday life no matter what I am doing. To me music is more important than anything. Below are ten musicians who make music that I am completely in love with.

1.)Falkenstein- Neofolk music from Germany
2.)Kroda- Heathen Folk tinged Black Metal from Ukraine
3.)Krynitza- Neofolk music from Russia
4.)Frank Rennicke- Neo Folk from Germany
5.)Branikald- NSBM from Russia
6.)Richard Wagner- Classical composer who bases his scores from Norse Sagas
7.)Hate Forest- NSBM from Ukraine
8.)Burzum- Black Metal from Norway
9.)Bathory- Pagan Metal from Sweden
10.)Temnozor- Pagan Folk metal from Russia

that was difficult and actually there are many bands who I love the same as these ten. We'll just call this a list of recommendations. Where's yours?

Those are my favorites these days....

Obviously music is important to most people because this post was responded to so quickly. Thanks for the reply:)

@Fallen_Horse I never got into any of the Modest Mouse albums but that Ugly Casanova record is pretty awesome

I like many different kinds of music and dislike many bands that are similar to some of my favorites. Some things I like are actually just bad also and not sure why I like it :lol:



Anti-Flag
The Beatles
Beirut
Bill Withers
Desaparecidos
Inspectah Deck
John Coltrane :boxer:
The Mars Volta
Mos Def
Operation Ivy
Propagandhi
Rancid
Raphael Saadiq
Reflections Eternal
The Roots
Stephen Marley
Strike Anywhere
Wu-Tang Clan

That's really not even enough to get an idea of what I like but I'd be here all day if I didn't stop somewhere.

I think that when someone says that they love all music it means they love only popular music. I like a lot of music styles but much of the things I listen to are sub genres of other genres. I can guarantee that anyone who says that they love all music would not like the music I like. My tastes cover a wide variety of heathen folk and neo folk music. I like Black metal meaning that I like an assortment of genres of Black metal. I like Classical music and when I say classical music...I mean that I like the classical music that is triumphant. I like folk metal, and pagan metal along with an assortment of other genres of metal music.

I know this is an old thread & I don't post here much, but I can't let this go unchallenged. To the OP: your fascist bullsh*t has no place in the vegan community, please keep your politics to yourself or better yet go away.

For anyone wondering about 'NSBM', it's national socialist black metal, an overtly hateful Nazi movement.

@Tribe I really love old Drudkh. I own all of the albums previous to "Handful of stars" I even own a hand numbered limited edition didgpack copy of "Blood in our wells" Also I like your other taste in music. Enslaved. Wolves in the throne room and Agalloch are all bad ass. Also thank you Cellar:)

Sinatra, any "Rat Pack" music, Nora Jones, Sarah McLachlan, for relaxing. I have gotten really fond of classical for lifting (amazing focus). And for cardio pretty much any pop/rock music on the charts will get me through, although more for the beat then anything else, lol

I try to limit my consumption of other people's music these days, as I tend to fall in love with certain projects and find myself emulating in my own creative process. Any Artist (I cringe a little every time I use that term self-referentially) who puts blood and sweat into their Art knows the importance of thinking outside of cliche', and the familar.

Anyway, here are some of my all-timers:

Tool (Just embrass everybody, really...so much talent it makes me ashamed to even write music)

Mars Volta
GSYBE
VAST
The libertines
worlds end girlfriend
Live ( secret samadhi only)
Fantomas, Lovage, anything Mike patton touches ( probably with a plastic tentacle)
Virtually all blues Artists ( boz scagg, muddy waters, skip james)
Something For kate
explosions in the sky
Slayerrrrrrr
Tori amos
Coldplay (parachutes only)
Led Zeppelin (only for jimmy page, plant ruins a good thing IMO)
The dresden dolls
Kate bush
Pantera
anti-nowhere league
Black flag
Mogwai
Mazzy star ( yeah I did it)
Russian Circles
Queens of the stoneage ( sometimes)
Radiohead
Smoky/ miracles
Portishead
Massive attack
Melt banana
The melvins
soundgarden

And more that deserve to be there, who at the minute elude me.
