Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away) - Deftones.

I was a Deftones fan before this, but when I heard this on the Around The Fur album, it moved them from being a band I liked, to a band I adore.

Hold My Finger - SikTh

Heard this on a CD that came with a magazine. Bought the album on release. What a song, what a band!

Guns and Horses - Ellie Goulding

A fantastic slice of pop music, which lead me to buy her album, which is utterly fantastic!

If you like that, check out "Such The Fool" from the same album. Easily the best track on the album. Plus it's about sluts, so that's an added bonus.

Crosswind Minuet - dredg

The intro in this song is epic. When it goes to the first heavy part it was even more epic. It basically just keeps getting more epic as it goes. I can't get enough of it. Wish they still played stuff like that.

Bleak - Opeth

The exotic riff after the little opening sequence is probably my favorite riff of all time. And the entire song is so dark. Goes a lot of different places.

3 Libras - A Perfect Circle

Beautiful, that's about all I have to say about it.

There are so many others.. those are the first three I though of.

Deftones - Rocket Skates. I liked them before, but I heard them play this live and it radically changed my perspective on them.

Elliott Smith - Between the Bars and Angeles. I'm not really into his kind of music, but he's a true artist.

Last one:
Radiohead - Sail to the Moon and There, There. I saw them do There, There on Jools Holland and it blew my mind. Then I heard Sail to the Moon and I was literally speechless.

Hold My Finger - SikTh

Heard this on a CD that came with a magazine. Bought the album on release. What a song, what a band!

Hell yeah! SikTh kicks ass! That song is totally crazy, but one of their weaker tunes in my opinion, at least when compared to their other songs.

Scent of the Obscene got me into SikTh. The crazy licks in the chorus sounded so cool, and it was one of the first songs I had heard that put slap bass into a metal sort of context. Not just a metal riff played slap style, but a genuine slap bass riff. I listened to a few more songs which ended up being even better, and I couldn't stop. SikTh is an extremely technical metalcore kind of band, but they channel so much raw emotion through that technicality. They aren't just showing off like most tech metal bands.

Joy in Repetition got me into Prince. The part where he says, "Up on the mic, repeating two words, over and over again... was this women he had never noticed before he lost himself in the articulated manner in which she said them..." That line is such a mouthful, but he spits it out so quickly yet smoothly, and throws in a little "heh" right after, as if acknowledging how baffled I am at that point.

Jerry Was a Racecar Driver got me into Primus. I had heard the song so many times on Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, but it wasn't until several years later that I found out who the band was. I instantly became completely obsessed with Primus, and my bass chops soared.

St. Alfonzo's Pancake Breakfast got me into Frank Zappa. The lyrics, the crazy xylophone intro, the call and response vocals and guitar/horn section, everything about the song is totally ridiculous. I got the impression that Zappa was an insane freak, but that he expresses his insane freakiness in such a fun, technically impressive way. I don't think I could have been more right.

Take the Veil Cerpin Taxt got me into the Mars Volta. When people tried to show me the Mars Volta before this song, the high-pitched vocals in front of the twangy, dissonant guitar was just too much for me to handle. I didn't give them a chance. One day I dropped 5 hits of acid and my friend showed me this song... right away there is an extremely weird but catchy guitar riff. As weird as the vocals are, he sings so passionately, and in a way that somehow fits the music. Halfway through, it is simply mind blowing. The somewhat reasonably structured song suddenly dissolves into this series of deep synthy textures, where the most nonsensical guitar riff you'll ever hear emerges. The drums and bass come in at the same moment he flicks on some crazy-sounding filter on his guitar. A few measures of this heavily filtered nonsense are then cut off by a quick bass solo which leads into the grooviest Latin interlude. From that point I was hooked. Not to mention tripping my ass off.

*deep breath*

Memories, man.
I play guitar in a funky death metal band called Lobotomizer. Listen to our demo here.
I also slap the bass and I'm learning how to tame the sax.
I go to school at Ex'pression College for Digital Arts. Any questions about it? Ask me.
