you should call one of the songs, "Respecting Old People" just to mix things up.

Metallica also does this, but non-members get the ones from the 80's up until 2003.

I just downloaded Fast Crew's latest album from their Myspace...New Zealand hip hop. I'm a metalhead though, so that's weird...

I also downloaded some release from Hanni Kohl's Myspace. It's a German electronic-grindcore band. Can't really give any real genre.

Definitely no melodic singing...lots of gutterals, pig squeals and stuff.

You can download their whole discography for free on their site.

As for their genre, my friend once described them as "Industrial, with a little meat to it."

Really good stuff.

Dawn of Tears has two albums available for download on their site.

What are they like? Been meaning to check out some new stuff.

Fall Of Eden. Amazing melodic death metal band. Could also be described as "Epic-Core". Used to be kind of metalcore-ish, but their new stuff is great. Old stuff isn't bad either. They have growling and real singing. Listen to the song A Call For Blood. That's the best one.

Like punk the way it used to be? Deranged Youth Its like what Warped Tour should be!

Want to hear something mind-blowing? Pit O' Bodies Its like an amateur hypnotist plus the Spanish Inquisition!
