|Alphabet City Is Haunted|
Yaaay alphabet music! My favourite bands from each letter of the alphabet in case it wasn't already explicitly obvious.
|1||At The Drive-In|
Relationship of Command
Okay wow deciding this sucked. I love At The Drive-In so I figure they should go here, but I also really really wanted to put Archives and Armchairpolitician and The Appleseed Cast. Ugh so many. Oh well, At The Drive-In love.
The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me
Obvious choice I know, but there really isn't any competition. I love this album to pieces and that's all there is to it. It's wonderful.
|3||City of Caterpillar|
City of Caterpillar
C is another awesome letter. Here we have rivalry between Converge, Circle Takes the Square, Ceremony and Cursed ugh. I don't know. City of Caterpillar are what really got me into screamo though, so I feel like they deserve to be here although Converge... ughgfhgg.
|4||Dance Gavin Dance|
Also really want to put Dangers, Defeater, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Drive Like Jehu but I guess I just have a hard-on for this band.
Elliott Smith on a SlightlyEpic list!?!? What is this blasphemy!?!? The man was a genius, I adore everything he ever released.
This one was really difficult. I could've picked Fugazi or The Fall of Boss Koala or Fear Before (The March of Flames) or Funeral Diner but I didn't. Why? I have no idea. I guess these guys got me out of my recent screamo binge so I thank them for expanding my horizons considerably.
|7||Godspeed You! Black Emperor|
Slow Riot For New Zero Kanada
This wasn't really hard as such since GY!BE win by a long shot, best post-rock band ever. I did really want Gospel and GZA on this list though, since I love them both.
Fair Trades And Farewells EP
Fairly easy choice, honorable mentions go to Hopesfall, His Hero Is Gone and Husker Du though.
|9||I Hate Myself|
Yep. I hate myself. Nothing much to say about this, awesome.
|10||Joshua Fit For Battle|
To Bring Our Own End
I don't really LOVE this album as such but I really don't have many 'J' albums at all. It was between this, Jeromes Dream, The Jonbenet and June Paik. Eh.
I love Kidcrash. I also love Kayo Dot though, among others.
|12|| ||Love... Like Electrocution|
Love... Like Electrocution
Once again I don't have that many artists starting with 'L'. I guess I do like La Quiete, La Dispute, Lady Radiator, Le Pre Ou Je Suis Mort and Loma Prieta. But this came on top, just.
The Old Road
Holy shit 'M' is disgustingly hard to choose. Ugh so many artists. I'll just. Ugh ugh. Do I choose Mesa Verde, Majority Rule, mewithoutYou, The Microphones, Million Dead, Modern Life Is War, My Bloody Valentine? I don't know :(
I was feeling too white so far. Illmatic is fucking awesome though. Really wanted to put Nick Drake's Pink Moon here too.
Lol. YEAHHHHH. Idk, I love Orchid and Oceansize too.
Document # 8
PUNK ROCK SHOULD MEAN FREEDOM. Panopticon, The Pax Cecilia and Poison the Well came close here.
...And The Battle Begun
It's so upbeat and awesome I love it. Sort of want to put Rites of Spring or Raein or something here but I don't like them nearly as much as I do Rx Bandits.
...Is A Real Boy
This is another really hard one but I figured I'd settle on sentimental value. Ugh how did this beat out fucking Saetia, Sed Non Satiata, Shining, Slowdive, Streetlight Manifesto AND Suis La Lune!!?!?
Lol sentimentality again. Still do love these guys though. Touche Amore, Transistor Transistor, Tragedy and Trespassers William were up there for 'T'.
Leaves Turn Inside You
This was a surprisingly difficult choice. I love U nion of Uranus and Ulver too, but go figure. Unwound wins it for me.
Rossz Csillag Allat Szuletett
Trippy as fuck with drums and Hungarian classical music and yeahhh.
Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
WU-TANG CLAN AIN'T NOTHING TO FUCK WITH. This one was pretty hard, was considering Weekend Nachos, ...Who Calls So Loud and A Wilhelm Scream.
Enjoy Eternal Bliss
Prettyfulllll. I also love Year of No Light and Yaphet Kotto however. Just not as much as this.
Three Years in the Desert
My only 'Z' artist.
|25|| ||7 Angels 7 Plagues|
Classic metalcore, was thinking about 108, 1905 and 1994! for bands that start with numbers. Pretty confusing, huh? Also, I don't know my fucking alphabet wtf is this. RGGHH.
Somehow I managed to miss out 'Q', derp.
And 'X' too. I don't know, I don't really like this all that much but it has a penis on the cover so it winnnsss.
