Lifechanging Albums

Just a couple albums that changed my perspective on music. I know I'll get shit for #1, but I dont care. They have been, and will remain to be my favorite band. Yes, all h ealbums are metal, because 90% of what I listen to is metal. Get over it.
The Great Southern Trendkill

This album was really a turning point for me. I had already gotten Far Beyond Driven, but back in the day, TGSTK defined heavy for me. I mean, I'd heard heavy stuff before, but this album just put me on my ass the first time I listened to it, and thats something I'll never forget. It really acted as a gateway to heavier material.

Nocturnal was probably one of the first deathcore albums I heard. Being a musician, the ability to maintain brutality while staying melodic was just so mindblowing to me. The music on this album has really effected how I write songs.
This Is Exile

Yeah. Go ahead and flame me.=(
This could easily have been in my Top 3 albums for a loooooooooooooong time. Just the kick in the face it gives you. I had listened to death metal for a long time before the deathcore movement began, and naturally, I thought death metal was as brutal as anything could get. Then I heard Posession somewhere and I had a revalation. I have to say that Whitechapel and TBDM were extremely fundamental in my musical journey.

When I was in 4th grade, I bought Vile by Cannibal Corpse, thus starting my descent into death metal. To me, death metal was an amazing concept; blazing fast guitars, gutwrenching gutturals, and blast beats from hell. It wasn't until I heard this album that I knew what death metal really SHOULD be. The technical proficiency on this record still blows my mind, and it's always been my favorite death metal album. Not to mention that I'm taking college classes next semester to become an egyptologist. lol

I actually just very recently started liking Down. Terrible, I know? But nonetheless, this album has barely left my headphones since I found it. I havent owned this for more than two weeks and its already majorly affected the way I compose songs. Truthfully, this album and August&Everything Else by Counting Crows were evenly matched ofr this spot.
