Songs That Define My Taste In Music #8 & #7 (Mik)
Posted by Irmelinis
This was indeed a difficult, but interesting challenge. Exactly what I like and look for in music, and mainly in metal, is something I’ve never thought about to a great extent before. And I wouldn’t say it’s important to know either, it’s just a way to get to know myself better (and a good excuse for making another list). It goes a bit deeper and is more specific than just saying “I like <insert genre here>”. These components I’m describing apply to any style of music I listen to.
#8 The rhythm section
Powerful, complicated drums and audible bass. Irresistible grooves and repeating, low-tuned guitars. All of those are very often included in the music I like the most. I enjoy listening through a whole album only following the drum patterns, or the bass lines, if they are interesting enough. A strong, complex rhythm section is the main reason why I love bands like Gojira, Opeth, Tool, TesseracT, The Safety Fire, some black metal and most djent.
Black Crown Initiate – Ghost She Sends
#7 The catchy and speedy component
“Say we will not be, will not be deniiiied! Or we won’t go down, down without a fiiiight, noooo!” I can’t live without music that gives me an energy boost; the extremely groovy, melodic and sing-along-friendly songs, preferably with clean vocals and heavy, fast-paced music. But, I don’t want cheesy-ness or humorous lyrics. This is why I love Soilwork, Darkane, Avantasia, Helloween and the band that makes me do a “happy dance” more often than any other right now:
