Pagan Altar "Pagan Altar"
-I often think about going on some epic quest, with a cloaked moon cat as my sole companion. Pagan Altar makes me think it could possibly happen one day.
Thin Lizzy "Honesty Is No Excuse"
-Downloaded a torrent of their entire discography and was trying to make my way through their early albums when this song came on. Never made it any further than this.
Nirvana "Old Age"
-Favorite song from a Nirvana rarities mix my roommate made. Think I listened to that mix more than any other album this year.
Ride for Revenge "No Saviour No Return"
-Weirdo Finnish black metal. I listen to a lot of music that I don't think I could listen to in the presence of most other people. RFR is the perfect example, though for reasons unlike any other band in that category.
Coil "Tattooed Man"
-Probably going to finish out the year obsessed with this song/band.
Death in June "Daedalus Rising"
-I thought about making a mix that only consisted of this song repeated 10 times.
Abner Jay "Bring It With You When You Come"
-Self described as the “last working Southern black minstrel." My greatest musical discovery of the past 5 years.
Nick Cave "When I First Came To Town"
-If I had to pick one person to be my hero it might be Nick Cave.
Christian Mistress "Home In The Sun"
-This song inspired other mixes such as 'Heavy Metal Montauk' , 'Heavy Metal Math Test', and 'Heavy Metal Workout.' Makes me want to huff gas, drive fast, and shoot guns.
Big Blood "The Architect and The Archeologist"
-Been totally obsessed with their music for close to 13 years now. Gives me hope for humanity.
