    So judging from the few threads that have mentioned music we have a nice array of people into bands and things.

    Terrible sentence I'm sorry ...

    What are people listening to right now? Anything good to recommend? I am a big spotify user, so for me it has actually been a playlist made by the grantland staff - "The only wu-tang playlist you will ever need." For you staten Islanders it is pretty solid.



    On my home stereo the New Water Liars album (completely different from wu-tang) has been on pretty solid rotation.



    That is all.

    @kylelovescrayons@kylelovescrayons GZA is easily the best rapper/lyricist. I'm not a big rap fan so I'm not a good judge of what is good and bad, but Liquid Swords is perfect. Everyone song - except maybe B.I.B.L.E.

    I appreciate all music. As long as it is well written. My collection includes Metal, Classical, Punk, A Capella, Bluegrass, Rap, Folk. I tend to avoid pop-country and gospel though.

    My heart is with Classical and Metal though.
    Mahler - Symphony No 5


    Opeth - Face of Melinda

    I'm all over the place. I don't really listen to artists, more so songs. If it sounds good to me I listen.
    Get most of mine via satellite radio (SiriusXm Alt Nation) hear stuff that comes down on fm months later.
    Some I can recommend.



    And



    And


    Probably my favorite right now

    Any love for Aesop Rock? Here's an older set of songs that uses similar lyrics, but in two different ways.

    Wow. You took it back with the Aesop Rock. That reminds of when I used to post on IGN forums and everybody was talking about Aesop Rock and Louis Logic. LOL

    Aesop Rock is dope - daylight and labor days are such solid albums - he just played the other day with homeboy sandman - a queens artist who is fan-frikkin-tastic -



    Also for metal fans -

    anyone listening to panopticon? It's like americana folk bluegrass metal ... what the poop?

    What? Panopticon is one of the last bands I'd expect to see here lol. I loved Kentucky. Having a harder time getting into 'Roads to North' though...but haven't given up hope.

    Yeah Kentucky is frikkin beautiful - well maybe that's a word for it ... I'm digging the new album a lot. That and the new pallbearer 'foundations of burden' and maybe Indian's 'from all purity' which is way more screaming double bass drummy then i usually like - were my metal albums of 2014 - also murmur's eponymous album - i thought this was a good year for metal personally - your thoughts Mr. Einwindir?

    I listen to a bit of everything, but I grew up going to metal shows and playing in metal bands. These days I mostly listen to folk, americana, and alt-country, so "americana folk bluegrass metal" should be right in my wheelhouse, but I just looked up Pamopticon and, well... I listened to the beginning of their album Kentucky, and was feeling the old time banjo and the ripping/somewhat discordant fiddle, but then when it slams into traditional black metal with flutes... not so much. Cool idea, maybe not fantastic execution.

    Some bands I've been listening to recently:

    I'm into mostly european stuff (Windir is my handle afterall) so there's a definite bias.

    Some of my personal favorites:
    Kampfar - Djevelmakt
    Sabaton - Heroes
    Equilibrium - Erdetempel
    Mastadon - Once More Round the Sun
    Einherjer - Av Foss For Foss
    Devin Townsend - Z2 and the other one
    AT THE FUCKING GATES
    Mors Principium Est - Dawn of the 5th Era

    ...from the looks of it 2014 was a huge year in metal for me. I'm looking forward to getting into more American/Cascadian Black Metal this year...there's so much happening over there that i've been ignoring. Also sludge...just been getting into it recently so I look forward to discovering some new stuff.

    I also love me some americana/alt-country - i mean uncle tupelo's album no depression gets me every time. That being said i think you should give the panopticon stuff a chance - or try the newest album road to the north it has a few more melodic/mellow points. There's also this band saor who play the scottish/celtic version

    I guess I'll give them another shot, I was hoping for more integration of the folk and black metal, but maybe they do more of that elsewhere.

    Indian is badass. I've spoken to their guitarist Will a few times, he's a good guy (and coincidentally good friends with The Devil Makes Three who I posted above). I've really fallen off listening to new metal in the past year or so. Didn't even know they had a new album out.

    Didn't play in the city too much, mostly Hudson Valley and NE. The last band I was in played only one show in the city, with Downfall of Gaia in Brooklyn. That would have been Summer 2013.

    I wanted to see if maybe we've crossed paths but by then I was long out of the scene. I used to play from around '99-'09. Mostly in the boros but we did a few in Yonkers and a small handful in PA and Buffalo.
