Week 24: Foo Fighters – Let It Die

This is one of those tracks I listen to when I need to get some aggression out of my system. It starts calm with some nice acoustic guitar and ends in total chaos with very heavy electric guitars and screaming vocals. The transition is handled extremely well, and if I’m in a bad mood it usually helps to listen to this track a few times to make me feel better.

Week 23: Dream Theater – Prophets Of War

I suppose it doesn’t come as a shock that I enjoy the occasional bombastic track or two. If you know that about me, I guess it also doesn’t come as a shock that I very much enjoy some progressive metal every now and then. This track is one of my absolute favorites from one of my favorite progressive metal bands. Something to note is that I’m a sucker for both double bass drums as well as big choruses chanting things, and this track clearly checks both those boxes.

Week 13: Richard Cheese – Somebody Told Me

I have a certain place in my heart for great covers. I’m always happy to hear a new version of a track, doesn’t matter if it’s better or worse. However, when I hear a cover of something that I like and the new version is of equal or better quality, then I’m filled with joy. Richard Cheese’s version of The Killers’ Somebody Told Me falls in the group of covers that take a song to completely new levels, and as such, I decided it was worth a mention.
