I understand this thread has been brought up before. But it's always a pretty good subject.
Today I downloaded a bunch of Slayer to my ipod and went to the gym and rocked it fucking hard. I think the more demonic the music the better. Death metal+Spike=deep, ass kicking squats.
Ah yes another true believer in my theory of Slayer!
It is proven that listening to Slayer can actually cause you to gain muscle and loose fat without actually lifting weights.
It certainly gets the blood pumping.
You guys should try Phil Collins or Dido. My traps are huge now. Word.

This keeps me busy and pissed off.
Led Zeppelin-Hots On For Nowhere
Slayer's great, but Pantera's best dozen or so songs are just as good. Even better than both is Phil Anselmo's other band, Down. Their first album, NOLA, is pretty much the best metal I've ever heard. Highly recommend picking it up.

I'll check 'em out.
slipknot and the deftones work great for me.
I don''t like to put down other's musical tastes, but to call Down's NOLA the best metal album ever is quite ludicrous.

Down is good, but not THAT good. Pantera is much better.
I've been listening to a lot of Demon Hunter recently. Good band, and great for lifting. Their first cd is the best.
Mississippi Queen = Mountain
That guitar tone and double bass drums still hold up as heavy and kick ass even today.
Meshuggah's Catch Thirtythr33 is a constant favorite, but some others that have made their way back into my regular rotation lately are:
Slipknot: Subliminal VersesSomething Must Die: Riding in an AmbulanceHatebreed: The Rise of Brutality
As for new stuff, not too much comes to mind. Musicians need to start doing drugs again or something. But I am looking forward to that new Tool coming out May 2nd. Hopefully that will hold some good things...
i dusted off 3 old Sepultura cds... Arise, Chaos AD, and Roots...man I forgot how great their early stuff is when you're lifting
Just DL'd Rob Zombies latest..educated horses. No verdict yet but my initial response was rather ho-hum.
My tastes aren't everybody's; for example, Diabolus in Musica is one of my favorite Slayer albums, and I think a lot of their fans thought it was mediocre. But NOLA is pretty high up there for me, love to hear your choices.
Dittohead is similarly proven to increase bench press by 10 ~ 12 %
Hey Chiefy, Great topic dude...anything by Hate Eternal, Nile, Decrepit Birth,old candiria (subliminal,surrealistic,etc.). Basically, any band with a good drummer and good blastbeats!!!
