I'm having an end-of-summer COD4/Super Smash Bros/Halo 3 party tomorrow, and I'm thinking about using my iTunes gift card (it's about time) to download a CD, or possibly make a mix, for everyone to listen to. I was thinking either Aphex Twin, or a mix of technical death, progressive, and power metal songs, which would also include Aphex Twin. I'm going to take this, and some other music that I already have, and make an epic playlist for us to listen to whilst pwning each other.

I haven't narrowed down songs yet, but so far for bands, I think I have...

Necrophagist
Dream Theater
Squarepusher
Ensiferum
Sonata Arctica
Dragonforce
Nile
Tool
Primus
Keep of Kalessin
Amon Amarth
Wintersun
Alestorm
Arsis
Between the Buried and Me
Catamenia
Genghis Tron
Canvas Solaris
Liquid Tension Experiment
Mr. Bungle
Symphony X

I'm also considering including Weather Report. That may not seem like the best gaming music but instrumental stuff like that really helps me focus.

I was thinking about maybe downloading Cryptopsy, Aeon Spark, Gorguts, Aphex Twin, Blackfield, or something with Ron Jarzombek. Any suggestions?


EDIT: Btw, the iTunes gift card is for $15.

Throw in some Muse.

I hate Muse.

Or at least the song or two I've heard. It's been a while, so I guess I could give them another chance.

Your last job only paid you $7.00 AUD an hour? That's like $6.05 in the US. What the hell is the minimum wage over there?

Yessir, I have one every two or three months. I have like six of my friends come, and we set up two or three TVs and play Super Smash Bros, COD4, and Halo 3. My mom's cool with it, and as long as everyone brings a 2-liter, she buys a ton of food. So we just sit around, listen to metal, and play games for about ten hours, sleep for a little bit, then wake up and start playing again. It's epic.

Chevelle owns for playing h3. But h3 sucks unless you're playing mlg anyways, so it doesn't really matter.

This may be the lamest thing I have heard about in a looong time.

agreed.

I haven't done it often but enough to tell you that there is no kind of metal that can possibly help you play better. If you are adamant about Aphex Twin I say go for that and Evol Intent... you cannot go wrong

U need more Rage, its good for shooters.
Good music should make you wanna get up and dance. Great music should set fire to cop cars and destroy dumpsters. I'm only interested in Great Music.
