6 May 2007, 00:31 by SubFuzeInstructions on how to calculate this as well as the original post are here:
1. List your top 20 overall artists
2. For each, list the 8 most similar artists
3. Delete any repeated artists to get an idea of how eclectic your music listening habits are
A score of 9 represents an extremely unvaried musical taste while a score of 160 represents an extremely varied one.
A tool to generate one for yourself is here:
1: Nine Inch Nails
3: A Perfect Circle
4: Marilyn Manson
5: The Smashing Pumpkins
9: Queens of the Stone Age
12: Infected Mushroom
13: Younger Brother
14: 1200 Micrograms
17: Astral Projection
18: Celtic Cross
19: Sister Machine Gun
21: Die Warzau
23: Gravity Kills
2 May 2007, 01:12 by object-a20 years ago, America lay its tainted mits on EBM. Starting with bands like Ministry, Skinny Puppy, and KMFDM, electro-industrial artists began slathering their discontented, cold electronics with angry, rage-fueled guitars.
Nick-named electro-crossover because of the way these artists crossed punk and metal guitars with electro, it was also marketed as "cold wave". American indie labels like 21st Circuitry and ReConstriction -- the same labels that brought Zoth Ommog and Covenant to the States -- packed their rosters full of these aggro-industrialists.
This explosion of guitars in industrial music spread around the world. In reaction, a new breed of electronic purists emerged. They peaked with the success of Covenant and VNV Nation. (We've been swinging back towards the harsher end for a couple of years now.)
Tonight from 10pm to midnight, EST (9-11pm, Central), on Darkside Radio, I'm broadcasting the highlights from the electro-crossover scene of the 1990s.
26 Mar 2007, 14:24 by deadcanHere's a table that shows my top bands and the number of listeners the band has.
3. Bix 1,313
4. Minor Threat 52,207
5. Gentle Giant 22,215
6. The Doors314,790
7. Peach 1,524
8. Genesis 99,683
9. 16volt 2,200
10. Led Zeppelin415,870
Total / 10 = 130,504.3
The most mainstream band in the world according to last.fm stats is RHCP. The band has 609,411 listeners.
130504.3/609.411*100% = 21.41
I am 21.41% mainstream.
Anyway, mainstream doesn't always mean bad. Tool nowadays is quite mainstream. Their latest "10,000 Days" album isn't bad, even it's quite mainstream, isn't it?
24 Jan 2007, 06:07 by negativebaseListening to alot of industrial & punk rock stuff . Trying to find my roots again. In some way's it worked I worked on music a few days ago and it felt good. I really like some of the old Kill Switch Klick , Chem Lab , 16 Volt , I also bought Architect a side project from D.myer of Haujobb I liked it. I really wish I could find death on the installment plan by Numb that was one of my favorite albums.
