Save Yourself by a band called Stabbing Westward
I had my head under a rock when this sort of music was at the top of the charts.
I'm of the opinion that Stabbing Westward didn't get the recognition that they deserved. Their first three albums Ungod
, Wither Blister Burn & Peel
, and Darkest Days
were great examples of dark and brooding music with great guitar work and keyboards. Some say that Christopher Hall's woe is me lyrics are too repetitive, if not a stalker's manifesto, but they fit the style of music really well. They broke up after their, relatively speaking, terrible fourth album came out and their have been rumors of a reunion recently.
In related news, I've been listening to Dead Letter Circus a lot recently. I saw them live a few weeks ago when they opened for Animals as Leaders, and the entire concert was amazing. Dead Letter Circus - "Cage"
Heavy is good, heavy is reliable. If it doesn't work, you can always hit them with it.
