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.
