1. Amaranthe, "Drop Dead Cynical" "The Nexus"
Amaranthe has some tremendous music videos. Love the sci-fi/horror vibe of "The Nexus."
2. Blind Guardian, "Nightfall in Middle-Earth (full album)"
The Silmarillion + heavy metal? YES, PLEASE.
3. Roxin' Palace, "Roxin Palace," "Viper's Advice"
Another band I found out about on Twitter. Twitter isn't my favorite thing in the world, but my goodness can you ever find a lot of great bands there.
4. Reckless Love, "Hot"
I bet I could convince my electronica-loving husband that this is just harmless dance music. Then, once this gateway rock song was planted, I would introduce progressively heavier tracks into his music library until he is converted to the One True Genre! Muuahahaha!
And now I'd better take a nap. Because apparently when my sleep schedule is disrupted enough, I become unhinged and morph into a heavy metal-themed supervillain.
