Davey’s Top Records/Artists

Rammstein – Reise, Reise

Rammstein blends electronic pop with industrial metal in a way that nobody else has managed to replicate. Seeing them live helped me realize what a powerhouse they still are, and this album constantly makes its rounds in my playlists.

Nine Inch Nails – The Downward Spiral

A much loved classic which I don’t really need to say much about. It’s been almost 25 years, everyone should be intimately familiar with this one!

Megadeth – Rust in Peace

Thrash metal is my first musical love and I am forever grateful that I was introduced to this record at the tender age of 13 because MEGADETH IS STILL MY FAVOURITE BAND.

Neurosis – Times of Grace

A huge influence on my songwriting as well as live performance. I love a lot of their cataloge but something about this record keeps me coming back for more.

High on Fire – Death is This Communion

I discovered this record in Highschool and spent many months getting super stoned and trying to learn how to play it. Matt Pike taught me that you don’t need two guitars to crush hard!

Jordan’s Top Records/Artists

Led Zeppelin – Led Zeppelin II

My #1 favourite band and record. Bonham is god.

Every Time I Die – The Big Dirty

I would never have discovered hardcore if it wasn’t for a friend introducing me to this amazing record in highschool. It summed up my party lifestyle at the time and though I don’t listen to it as often it still holds a special place in my heart.

Eminem – The Marshall Mathers LP

Eminem’s a lyrical genius. I started out listening to rap when I was young and he was my go to guy. That album turned me into a snobbish teenager with an attitude and I have 0 regrets.

Lamb of God – Wrath

One of the best metal albums I’ve ever heard. The mix is perfect and it has some of the tightest drumming I’ve ever heard.

Michael Jackson – Thriller

The first album I ever bought and it’s still one of my favourites. I was really into MJ as a kid and I still am to this day.

Z’s Top Records/Artists

Radiohead – Pablo Honey

This album is about me because I’m a creep!

Radiohead – The Bends

Radiohead have the darkest and most beautiful albums.

Joy Division – Love Will Tear Us Apart (Single)

Love always tears us apart.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor – Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven

This album’s name is so long and deep. I love it.

Converge – Jane Doe

No comment necessary.
