Oh now we hit it off people! These kind of topics are the ones I love....
Mitah, your choices are great overall, but Apocalyptica is the one name on there that got me in to them again, thanks for that! (although I might add that Toreador and Toreador II are my favorites
My building music is different most of the times, depends on my mood really. Movie music tends to help a lot of the times, my current movie music consists the following soundtracks:
Ironclad soundtrack by Lorne Balfe (sample here
King Arthur soundtrack by Hans Zimmer (of course) (sample here
Robin Hood soundtrack by Marc Streitenfeld (sample here
Show White and the Huntsman, well only one song in particular actually, Warriors on the Beach
The Dark Knight rises (again) Hans Zimmer (sample here
The Last Samurai (and again) Hans Zimmer (sample here
When I'm in a different mood however I like to crank it up to eleven as Nigel Tuffnel put it so wisely
Some bands in the line-up:UnearthThe AbscenceLamb of GodTriviumEluveitieMastodonMachine HeadAs I Lay DyingQueens of the Stone AgeFoo Fighters
I could go on for a while, but I think this'll do
. Oh warning, if you do not like metal that much and you have your volume on pretty high, I suggest you turn it down a couple of notches...
