So apparently my Metal Mix was a little bit of a hit, as in more than my inner circle of 3 friends downloaded it and listened to it. so, with my new found success, i decided to add 10 tracks to the mix.
Basically, the original mix was made up of mostly smaller bands, most of them unsigned. i don't want a new listener (of metalcore or heavy music) not to hear from the bands that are setting the standard. so with that i added 10 tracks from bands who are headlining all of these major tours, signed by reputable labels, and/or are in the top 10 on TRL (is that still on TV these days?).
here's the track list:
1. (intro) As I Lay Dying - Separation: Christian metal. Metal Blade Records. this is the standard in Christian metal today
2. As I Lay Dying - The Sound of Truth: see above.
3. The Devil Wears Prada - Dez Moines: Christian metalcore. Ferret Records.
4. Thirty and Seven - August Burns Red: Christian metalcore/mathcore. Solid State Records.
5. War of Ages - All Consuming Fire: Christian hardcore/metal. Facedown Records.
6. Haste The Day - Resolve: Christian metalcore. Solid State Records. Currently my favorite band.
7. Oh Sleeper - Son of the Morning: Christian metalcore. Solid State Records. my other favorite band right now, this track is off their latest album, a concept album.
8. UnderOATH - Anyone Can Dig a Hole...: Christian metalcore. Tooth & Nail Records. the O.G.'s of the game, this is the band that everyone else is copying.
9. Norma Jean - Blue Prints for Future Homes: christian metalcore/post-hardcore. Razor and Tie Records. another band that has been in the game for awhile.
10. Story of the Year - March of the Dead: rock/ post-hardcore. Epitaph Records. i just threw this track on here, i like SOTY but they're not really metal.
