I've always loved heavy music, grunge got me through most of the 90s and introduced me to other sort-of-metal bands such as Deftones, Tool, System of a Down etc. Then the 00s hit and I was off to college. Gradually I got more into electronic stuff but I still retained a strong inclination towards music that was sonically dark and aggressive. It is interesting to me that there seems to be a bit of a trend lately to hear electronic producers that have taken a background in listening to metal and used it to colour their productions without it seeming like a cheesy parody (ie such as Distance, not ridiculous breakcore producers who mash in thrash metal over double time breakbeats). This mix is an attempt to make connections between the worlds of post-hardcore and metal, and electronic music. It is also me just stringing together some of my favourite tunes for turning up real loud and moshing when nobody is looking. Admittedly, it's not for everyone.
