What artist(s) have gotten you through some of the hardest situations in your life?

For me, it was Shinedown, Lacuna Coil, Scar Symmetry, aaaaaand...I know there's one more...oh, Insomnium! Don't know how I forgot them. They're one of my favorite bands.

Anyway, how about you guys?

Paysage D'Hiver, the ambient Burzum tracks from Hvis and Filosofem, a good set of headphones and weed.

But what hard situations did those bands get you through and how did they help?

Explosions in the sky chilled me out when i was tripping on a half ounce of perfectly legal oyster mushrooms once.

Is this what we are looking for?

Around the Fur by the Deftones circa 2005-2006. I was a depressed adolescent male student in middle school. Enough said.

I listened to a LOT of Bullet For My Valentine when my dad died, that was my lowest ebb. Seriously a lot. Mainly The Poison. I tend to avoid that album now cos the attachment to it but I do hold it in incredibly high esteem because of that now.

Nowadays it's mostly Devy.

Scar Symmetry is a great band no doubt, but they haven't really "helped me through tough times". I would say Moonsorrow.

Also Replica by Sonata Arctica and Deep Affection by Galneryus. Great songs.

Korn got me through a lot of stuff! I've stopped listening to them now though, just grown distant from their music

johnny cash got me through that one time the pigs pulled me over under probable suspicion of me being "drunk", so I passed the "walk in a line" test and nailed their lame "road-side evaluation"

the art of taste considered as a whole, the artist specifically is my own taste

same with everyone else, your possibilities available to you make you the real artist, considering how you use music to make an experience in life
