|My journey in music|
I always wanted to make a list about how my taste and preferences changed in music, but finally I beat my laziness so here it is. I'll start from the beginning: my first albums and later on the biggest influences with some description.
Please don't judge!
This was the beginning. The first album I had, and listened probably every day, and probably the most important step for exploring metal later.
Interestingly, if I wasn't so self-willed back then, probably my number one genre could have been rap nowadays, since Eminem was the big thing at my friends.
Dressed Up as Life
Some emo/grunge music for a while. Thankfully I wasn't that "active" at that time, so I don't had to forget so many pretty bad albums...
|3||The Noisy Freaks|
This band, more like this album, was a huge part of my life. It's still kinda cool electronic/dance music, pretty energetic and has a really positive atmosphere. And the best part: I could read so many books while listening this one - helped a lot to exclude the world around me.
Highway To Hell
AC/DC was the band which was always there, but never got that much spotlight. I was regularly listening to them, but not in that "dose" like others.
But I like them more and more as time goes on!
|5||TSM aka This Soft Machine|
On & On / This Place Was Meant For Me
This little EP sums pretty well what was the next chapter for me: disco, house etc. When I started the uni I found a great source of music: the Red Bull Music Academy Radio. I've been browsing and listenins a huge amount of music, but sadly I can't find most of 'em now, since the new website don't let you listen back previous mixes just for 30 days... so I lost many cool DJ's and their awesome mixes, but I will never forget those studying sessions listening this kind of music.
Next to the previous one, I fell in love with this stuff: (latin) jazz. I've been listening Cal Tjader A LOT back then. But since the radio's database is lost, I really can't remember many names...
One day, a new mix/interview was up on the radio's website featuring Deafheaven. Seemed cool, I gave a listen - and everything changed since then. I was hooked up immediately, and since I had just a minimal black metal experience, this was like an avalanche. This was heavy but in the same time happy, and emotional. This is still one of my top3 favourites ever.
Not so long after the previous one, I read an interview with George Clarke on the Rolling Stone magazine, where he shared his top10 fav metal albums and the very first one was Burzum. I was very curious, and gave it a listen.
And everything changed. THIS is it. Since that very day this is my No. 1. (but not totally No.1. there is another)
BM became THE genre for me.
Murder the Mountains
I tried many different "tastes" in general, and Relapse's catalog offered many favourites. F.e.: Red Fang gave me my most favourite song ever: 'Hank is Dead'. I dunno why, but I just love that song.
And the pinnacle: dungeon synth. This album cover seemed cool, and I gave a listen. I was surprised, because this wasn't BM at all. "The whole album is just synth interludes?" - was a first thought.
Later on I dug deeper and deeper in this small genre, and found a whole new underground universe. I love it. This is the genre which inspired me to make my own music, and I'm very happy about that.
This is the other No.1. I can't get enough!!
|nice journey! It makes so much sense that Filosofem was your first real BM album haha|
love 10 and 11, they've got such a great atmosphere
also, you create dungeon synth? hell yea, do you have anything released yet?
About my music...well, yes I made some music. 2 demos and a kinda proper album (still a bit short) + I made some songs for compilations (f.e. Shadowlore). My project is 'Frohvahr' if you're interested you can find me on bandcamp. So far, just digital only, but a new hungarian underground label is about to born, and they're going to release my latest work on cassette :)
