    Danish metal bands ranked by number of plays on last.fm.

  • The A to Z of my music.

    OK, it's about time I did an A to Z of music. Reason being, I see so many attempt this and struggle with X I thought I'd wade in with one for you to ponder over (although I do cheat a tad with Z).

    Point of note, this is merely a list of artists I like - and commentary on any one band is not necessarily down to me favouring them over the others listed in "Other notable mentions".

    So, here we 'ave it


    A: Anathema: They have made the transition from doomdeath to a more Pink Floyd/Radiohead type of sound. For me, they have bettered their sound and are now producing quality albums (this is not a slight on their earlier stuff, mind).
    Other notable mentions: AC/DC; Anthrax; ...and Oceans.

    B: Black Sabbath: Who else could grace the mantle of bands beginning with B but Sabbath themselves? The Gods of all that is doom.
    Other notable mentions: Biomechanical; Blaze; Burner.

    C: Celtic Frost: Fantastic band, the best the Swiss have ever produced, or are they....? (check out Coroner).
