Classic rock rocks! What else would you expect from an engineer?

I used to have hair almost down to my shoulders. Today, I'm grateful that I stil have a full (prettty much so)
head of hair, though quite a bit shorter.

Doom, death, black, power, goth, viking, power metal...sense a theme? ;D Also classic rock and I did indeed grow up in the country so I love me some old time country music.

I am currently a hair-farming engineer. I haven't noticed too many others of us out in the wild...

For me, mostly rock and metal. MOre specifically, noise rock, heavy rock/doom, desert/fuzz/groove rock, punk rock, metal, prog rock, math rock, classic rock. Some indie.

Unique vocal styles or none at all. Not too keen on the screamo vocal style. Ill take talented musicians just straight instrumental if the guy is just screaming... That's what kills it for me for most hardcore, death and black metal. Just cant get into the vocals.

Iron Maiden, Alice Cooper (seeing him in concert Monday!!!), Judas Priest, Deep Purple, Triumph, Golden Earring, Pink Floyd, Twisted Sister, Quiet Riot, Jethro Tull, Scorpions, Black Sabbath, Led Zep... anything that's good heavy metal or classic rock has my attention... anyone else like Dee Snyder's House of Hair radio show?

Well I'll say most of the above, plus a few bits that might not be so familiar to you lot on the "wrong" side of the pond ;-D

Like The Smiths/Morrissey, Madness, Carter USM, The Jam, not forgetting the Sex Pistols.

And also some of the more contemporary stuff like Greenday or Linkin Park, etc.....

But I notice a common thread, of metal.....

So does that mean that we all start out a bit "Beavis and Butthead"? Then learn about computers and ending up as "Meadfreaks" ?????

Interesting to see the metal affinity. I fancy myself a metal fan. Lately listening to the broken result, vegas in ruins, and henker.

But I listen to most all music. lately other than the metal its been elmore james, the black keys, Kanye wests newest album, Mumford and sons, Adele, dead kennedys, And some different sound tracks done by Clint Mansell.

Truth be told I listen to absolutely everything except not much modern pop country music.

I love that show! But none of our stations play it here, we do get Alice Cooper's radio show which is pretty awesome.

My favorite bands of the moment are Swallow the Sun, Arkona, Wardruna, B'elakor, Amon Amarth, Amorphis, and Isole. My favorite bands of all time tend to the classic rock though - Led Zepplin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rainbow, Van Halen with Roth. <3

I don't have particular mead drinking music.

My tastes vary a lot depending on my mood.

Calm/nostaligic I go country (George Strait, Johhny Cash)

Angry/heated I go classical for the calming affect (Dvorjak, Shostakovic)

Pumping myself for something stupid like bungee jumping or seeing how much air time I can get in a suzuki samurai... gotta be metal (Shinedown, Metallica, Ozzy....)

I went to school with a girl that's now an events coordinator for Alice Cooper, kinda cool, she was involved in the "One Red Paperclip" deal, she was involved at the "free rent" stage of the deal.

My uncle went to school with someone who worked with Alice Cooper's entourage, he's given me a couple of awesome glossy photos from the 60's/70's, including one where they're all dressed up in sailor suits!

Hey, I remember Alestorm, my friend played me that song... they're hilarious.

Ooh, how about Abney Park? I have three of their albums, I kept trying to cultivate their song "Building Steam" to be what plays in my head while I'm sparring, but I keep reverting back to Uriah Heep's "Lady in Black" for some reason...

I also must admit to having a weakness for Nickelback and Three Days Grace, but not much else from newer bands that I can think of...

With all this metal talk i have to throw a link to a song that I think is pretty great. It has huge build ups and chuggy base good break downs. Blast beats. Such a big song in its entirety I think it offers a lot of different things in one package.

When I was younger I liked, and still like, classical music and classic rock (although when I was listening to it, it wasn't 'classic rock' -- it was what was playing ;D ). I discovered Irish traditional music when I was in college and got bitten hard by the IR-Trad bug, have been listening mostly to IR-Trad since. I also enjoy the ballad tradition, The Dubliners are a favorite.

One of my all time favorites is "Emerson, Lake and Palmer" (especially everything up to the "Works" albums).

And its hard to beat sitting down with a gobet of mead while listening to "Renaissance". Their "Tales of 1001 Nights" Volumes 1 & 2 are truely great compulation albums. This was definately not the music of the masses.

I like Laurie Anderson's blend of poetical musical art from the '80's and Laura Barrett's Laurie Andersonesque funky Robot Ponies lyrics and African thumb piano...

But most of the time it's the Benedictine Monks of Santo Domingo de Silos setting the monastic mood around here.

Oh! Plus I love Sir Peter Maxwell Davies Orkney Wedding with Sunrise! Beethoven's Sixth (or Ninth)! Vivaldi!

That's good to know as I have tickets to see him in August. 3rd time I've had tickets but he canceled on the other 2 shows back in the late 70's.

I listen to Stevie Ray Vaughan, Lynyrd Skynryd, 38 Special alot in addition to just about everything you mentioned in your first post.

Oh, that sucks! Hopefully since he dried out, he's more reliable!! He's been to Ottawa six times that I know of and I've seen him five, I think. And each show has been completely different. SO worth general admission to see him close enough to tell the colour of his eyes!

Some bands are getting along to past their prime, I wasn't as impressed with Def Leppard a few years back (although Billy Idol opening for them WAS worth it), and I won't be seeing Jethro Tull live again... which sucks, because they're one of my favourite classic rock bands. <wanders off humming "Locomotive Breath"> (https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.215266111831164.73789.100000433302346&l=71d9da2a50)

Wow. I haven't listened to Renaissance in ages. Still remember seeing them in concert in ... well, let's just say it was a long time ago.

I don't have any particular favorite mead-drinking music and my collection is pretty wide ranging, but these days it tends toward the twangy. A sad country song pairs nicely with a well aged mead.

Heck yea, Agalloch is quite nice, reminds me of older Opeth (Morningrise era). And you are correct about Daemonarch, it was a one and done side project of Moonspell's. Its more like their earlier stuff (think Wolfheart only heavier). If you listen to it, let me know what you think.

Anything but rap...

Rap isn't a genre. Hip-hop is a genre, rap is something a person does. You wouldn't say I listen to "sing". I'm not meaning to be a dick, just correcting a frequent misconception.

In case it wasn't obvious, I like hip-hop. I generally like more abrasive hip-hop (here's a good example (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4_JJtWq3eg), here's another (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HC9yRE0P6uM)). Also a fan of turntablism (still on the abrasive side (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QS-MLV3YL1k)) and other less turntable driven "hiphopstrumentals" (like this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32X-ieCav-M) and this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svfvosEGN-g), two very beautiful songs).

That said, I do enjoy me some metal. Pelican (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHazTKpvpZQ), Electric Wizard (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWHplp10kQM&feature=related), Black Label Society typify the kind of metal I enjoy.

Also enjoy jazz (late John Coltrane kinda stuff), electronica (from fast-paced to ambient), classical (heavy on the romantics like Chopin and Beethoven), and all other manner of eclectic, preferably kinda out-there stuff (Joanna Newsom (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ak8S8FN3ycA) as one random example, John Fahey (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QIavfcdqnLo) as another).

Oh my all these metalheads! Seems like I'll fit right in!:D

I have a broad metal spectrum though, ranges from death to black (prefer symphonic though), to viking and folk metal, some power metal in between (only at certain times), progressive, and so on and so on.
Outside of metal I have an appreciation for folk, more classic rock/oldschool hardrock, and even jazz fits in every once in a while. Same with classical music:p

But let's say 98% of the time it'll be metal, gigs, booze and fun:p

Totally awesome, and yes pretty much everything Townsend touches is solid gold, he's definitely the greatest Canadian in the history of metal! And he's also a really very nice guy, I got to work with him a bit once a few years back on my friends' album, he was great. Hopefully I'll get to work with him more as time goes on and my recording/producing "career" (hard to call it that when I make zero money!) goes forward.

If you know who Hawking is, you will find yourself rocking out in no time.
The premise behind this is that Dr. Stephen Hawking, physicist extraordinaire and author of A Brief History of Time, chucks it all to become a gangsta rapper.

Imagine his computerized voice rapping. If you know anything about his theories or the.... complicated relationship with MIT, you'll be laughing your butt off.

Aside from being hilarious, it often explains facets of physics better than most classroom lecturers I have heard.

"You ever drop an egg and on the floor you see it break?
You go and get a mop so you can clean up your mistake.
But did you ever stop to ponder why we know it's true,
if you drop a broken egg you will not get an egg that's new.

That's entropy or E-N-T-R-O to the P to the Y,
the reason why the sun will one day all burn out and die.
Order from disorder is a scientific rarity,
allow me to explain it with a little bit more clarity.
Did I say rarity? I meant impossibility,
at least in a closed system there will always be more entropy.
That's entropy and I hope that you're all down with it,
if you are here's your membership."

I'd recommend going to his website to get samples of the songs, but the last time I checked, it was loaded with trojans and virii.


Now you're all down with a discount.
Peace out,

Joe

I listen to anything but hard rock/metal/djent have a special place in my heart. I actually am a one man hard rock band. You can guess the band name from my user name.

If you want to try some djent, check out lithium dawn, periphery, and io over at got djent dot com for free!

Jazz, especially jump blues and shouter (Louis Jordan, Wynonie Harris, etc.). Very into blues of all kinds (used to shoot for a blues mag when i lived in the UK). Very into ska, two tone, blue beat, rocksteady and reggae. Punk, and alt punk inc Jam, sham69, buzzcocks, clash, Dead Kennedy's . And all the rock too espesh Zep, ACDC, etc.

In fact I could go at this all night given how much of my life is consumed by music; instead just check my last.fm profile charts http://www.last.fm/user/tonyholmes/charts

That captures most of what I listen to in the home, none of what I listen to in the car.

I tend toward instrumentals over vocals and discord over melody. BLBAF, John Cage, Beethoven, Miles Davis, Project Trio, Skrillix, Sigur Ros, Múm, and Jaga Jazzist are the first nine that pop into my head.

Swans

One of my all time favorite bands. My fiancee hates them but oh well. I listen to them as often as I can. Not well known but something that moves me more than just about anything.
