|The Evolution Of Steel Erect's Musical Progression|
I thought I would go through my musical evolution as a tween through my now 27th year of
being alive. Before we had the internet, I used to do blind purchases or I would look at the
bands that my favorite bands thanked in their booklet and check them out. Also, older friends
helped improve my taste widely. I am bored and thought this would be fun to look back on. I
hope some of you enjoy and get a doozy out of this.
Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em
These next four albums described my 7-10 years old discovery of music from radio and MTV when they
actually played music videos.
Too Legit to Quit
I wanted the Hammer pants
Totally Krossed Out
I even wore my pants backwards to school once, that was hilarious.

Whoop! (There It Is)
I can't believe U got down to this.
These next few albums I bought with my allowance. I will say about 11-13. I went through somewhat of
a rap phase, pop rock phase, and discovered some metal.
|6||Green Day |
The Blue Album
|8||Mobb Deep |
Hell on Earth
|10||Insane Clown Posse|
Yes, I liked them when I was 13.....
Life is Peachy
Then, when I used to get dropped off at the mall with my friends, yes, I was a mallrat for a time too. I
discovered two albums that lead me down the more metal side of things.
Three Dolla Bill Y'all
|14||Rage Against the Machine|
|17||System of a Down|
System of a Down
|18||Alice In Chains|
Then, my sister's boyfriend left behind three albums that lead to me wanting to be a guitarist. This album
definitely right here pushed it really far for me.
Then, like some of the other bands listed, nu metal was a big part of my high school years until about my
senior year in 2001 before it got really stale to my ears. But here were a few more of my favorites in early
|21||Coal Chamber |
About end of Junior and Senior of High school is when I started getting into heavier stuff because the
music store I always went to...they told me get the fuck away from mattress metal.
Damned in Black
Paegan Terrorism Tactics
|28||Morbid Angel |
Sewn Mouth Secrets
The Great Southern Trendkill
|32||At the Gates|
With Fear I Kiss the Burning Darkness
At about 20, a friend introduced to death metal from Sweden, which I loved.
|34||Edge of Sanity|
|35|| ||In Flames|
Natural Born Chaos
|37||Garden of Shadows|
|38|| ||Ebony Tears|
Handful of Nothing
Then, in my mid 20s, I went through a huge stoner rock, 60s psychedelic, doom phase.
The Big Black
Welcome to Sky Valley
|44|| ||Deep Purple|
|45||Ten Years After|
First Daze Here: The Vintage Collection
The are more to be named off these genres that I named off, but these albums I remember impacted my
life at a time.
|48|| ||Electric Wizard|
Come My Fanatics
Sleep's Holy Mountain
Then, my love for grind and brutal death metal came back. And I still listen to a bunch of other shit that I
forgot about. Man, I left about a bunch actually, but this is a good timeline.
|This was kind of a fun road down memory lane. A lot of these records I still love, some records I love weren't mentioned, and some of these I just laugh at, but all in all. It has been a fun journey through my love of a music.|
|Oh baby! That is my lastfm and soulseek name.|
|k just added you on last.fm|
those final three bands/albums are insane win
|Hell yeah man. That EW record makes me feel stoned without being stoned. I love it.|
|do u have Nasum's Helvete? imo thats their best|
|Yeah, I do. I love that record. Scoop! Nasum was just awesome. Rotten Sound is my new favorite replacement since they will never be around again. Added to lastfm list.|
|Your musical progression seems to be really similar to mine. Of course, with a few exceptions. I'm going through a stoner rock phase right now. Does it mean that I'll begin to listen to grind and death metal within 2 years? I guess, yes. Besides, I like to think that I'm getting more versatile with age.|
|List reminded me that you're still yet to send me that Roachpowder album ;)|
|Haha, I forgot metalstyles. I will do what I can. You have soulseek? Greg, yeah, I mean, I don't only listen to metal myself, it just what I listen to the most. Yeah, I would say that my musical taste is quite diverse or versatile. |
|I just like to say it that's diverse haha. I guess I'm equally into rock, alternative and metal nowadays. Or at least my last.fm account says it. This Roachpowder album is really good. I'm listening to it right now. |
|Yeah dude. Where did you find it? I have been meaning to get it for metalstyles. I bought it on stonerock.com. It's gotta a lot of down influence in it, and the riffs are great. They have another album that is really good too called Atomic Church that I like a lot as well.|
|It's one of the shitload of stoner rock albums I've downloaded recently. I guess it's from one of the blogs I regularly check for new releases. As for stoner/desert rock, I definitely recommend the new Fatso Jetson album. I even wrote a review for this one. Besides, the Icelandic act The Brain Police is rad. Plus, of course I can't stop listening to Dozer releases. |
|What the hell is up with all of ICP's album covers?|
|I'm still a teenager and I love most of what you found in your 20's. Nice progression btw. |
