Wham bam thank you ma’am, here’s another installment of The Lair from BYT’s favorite bouncer/gym rat/dad/metal head Andy. As usual there will be no mention of The Concretes, Cat Power or Camera Obscura. Enjoy. -cale
Holy Hell people! How’s it going? Pretty good I hope? Let me just say that 99.5% of my new music listening happens when I’m popping a vein doing t bar rows, or preacher curls. I honestly give my reviews based on if a riff or a song can take me into a self moshing mode to new intensity in the gym. I made the mistake of bringing in Nightwish’s new one a few months ago, they had a great female singer who left the band right before they were going to have their first tour in the States. So a new male singer was found and it just puts you to sleep, I had no energy in the weightroom so therefore I played them to my son for soothing bed time tunes. My alltime lifting tunes are listed and they’ll help you too….I’ll give you 10 songs that you must put on any mp3 player in the weightroom or the treadmill etc… drum roll please:
Fuckin Hostile – Pantera
Mouth for War – Pantera
Nothings Wrong – Devil Driver
Halo – Soil
Disposable Heroes – Metallica (back to the front)
Hangar 18 – Megadeth
Spirit in Black – Slayer
Funeral Bell – Black Label Society
Black Label – Lamb of God
Damage Inc. – Metallica
Among the Living – Anthrax
damn! that’s 11, oh well! Just make sure you warm up.
