Ok jsut me beeing curious. What kind of music do you listen to? And is it different when you mod?

I'll begin, I generally listen to rock and metal. From poprock to hardrock to symphonic metal to speedmetal. Artists like Audioslave, Rammstein, In Extremo, Within Temptation, Lost Prophets, Apocalyptica, Dragonforce, Evanescence. But also Shakira, Chieftains, Sinead O'Conner and Tiësto :P

When I'm modding I tend to listen more to soundtracks then normal. Gladiator, King Arthur, LotR, Black Hawk Down etc.

Christian Rock FTW!

...No seriously, I listen to pretty much everything, right now? I'm listening to Staind - Epiphany.

Good thread :)

Christian Rock actually has some descent bands, Blindside for example

Most of the Realswords serie, in fact all of it, have been done under the influence of The Insane Clown Posse, and their 6 jokers albums.

the only time I wasn't listening to that while working on Realswords, is yesterday while I was modeling the Frazetta from a Conan painting. I played the Basil Poledouris soundtrack of Conan meanwhile.

that soundtrack is my favorite of any soundtrack I have ever heard. If you want I can post it in download section...

savvy?

that soundtrack Poledouris did for the Conan movies is so hot that for many years you could hear part of it's song in most cinema preview that hadn't yet a real score...

It's probably still used in such instance.

I'm a Conan fan, so I'm more than biased, but that soundtrack is just pure genius, whether you like Conan or not.

should be available in 15 minutes on the server.

Most of the time I listen to Rap and Punk Rock.

Here are some of my favorites of the genres:

Rap: Wu-tang Clan (everything, even some of the lousy solo stuff), GP Wu, Killarmy, Lone Catalysts, Boot Camp Click, Declaime/Dudley Perkins, KIZ (one of the groups to rescue German Rap), K-OS, Non Phixion, Oh No, Talib Kweli (mostly the older stuff like Reflection Eternal (with Hi-Tek) and Black Stars (with Mos Def)), The Roots (everything), Saian Supa Crew (incredible French group; I don't understand much, but the stuff rocks)...
I also own two or three ICP albums, Waalx, but I'm not sure if I could listen to all six of them in a row...:sad:

Punk Rock: Rise Against (best Punk band ever and forever! I so love their music, it even brings me up on very bad days.), Anti-Flag (close behind; the Terror State album is pure genius), Good Riddance, Against Me!, AFI (all of the older albums are classics), Lagwagon, Pennywise, Propagandhi...

Heavy Metal, Rock, Hardcore: Therapy (Troublegum reminds my of my teenage years), Such A Surge (German Hip Hop/Hardcore crossover band; now disbanded, but were very successful (and good) once), Slapshock (Filipino Nu Metal band; don't listen to that stuff normally, but a friend recommended it and I like it), Killswitch Engage, Rammstein (great music and super poetic texts! If you haven't the DVD with the live concert in Nimes/France, check it out; incredible show and atmosphere), Rage against the Machine, Pantera, Misconduct, Apocalyptica (the Plays Metalica by four Celli is a true piece of art), Sepultura, Disturbed...

Electro: Prodigy (everything), Fisherspooner (LA Song is number one on my most played list in iTunes), Shiny Toy Guns, Architecture in Helsinki, Aphrodite, Emily Autumn (discoverd her a few months ago by chance and now I'm fascinated by here mixture of Indusrial and Classic; this brought my to Rotersand and Combichrist, which is really heavy Industrial stuff, but quite interesting)...

Soundtracks: I don't listen to that much OSTs, but two are a mainstay in my list: A Nightmare before Christmas (both in German and English very good) and Dune- Spice Opera (the OST of the first Dune PC game; not Dune 2 (RTS); you can download it semi-legal from the web)

Outside of competition: Elvis Presley (Are you lonesome tonight???), Johnny Cash (a great musician and singer), Bob Marley (simple but beautiful)

Stay open minded because there is only one real genre: Good Music (Though, it's highly subjective sometimes... Though, sometimes not... :D )

Greetz! Darina

Edit
Waalx is that download of the Conan OST still available? I couldn't find it... Could someone provide me with a link? Thanks in advance!
