Browsing through my own collection makes for a long list of all time favorites, too many to mention actually: Motorpsycho, Mogwai, Prince, Pink Floyd, Sonic Youth, Neurosis, Slayer, Entombed, Tool, Trail of dead, Radiohead, Slint,... Can't really name absolute favorites, what I play depends highly on my mood. Some of this stuff I have hardly listened to for years.

This thread put me on the trail of some bands I'm starting to like a lot: Hooverphonic and Explosions in the Sky being the best examples. Never heard of Explosions, but 2 albums down the road (All of the sudden I miss everyone, How strange, innocence) I'm hooked already. Been listening to Mogwai a lot and this somehow fits in nicely.

Then again, iTunes doesn't lie... it looks like my main mood is (black) metal these days. Deathspell omega, Enslaved, Entombed. Play statistics are a weird thing.

Hey Rob!

You should check out Jakob (http://www.myspace.com/sgnl05) and Isis (http://www.myspace.com/jakobmusic)! They will combine your actual favorites very well! There is Sunn o))) (http://www.myspace.com/flightofthebehemoth), too. But imo you just can listen to them while evocating something from some sphere of something winking smiley
EKO EKO AZARAK!

uhuh actually I've discovered Abraxas from my dad's LP. Never listened to Santana seriously, always thought he was just the common type of "yeahguitarman", if you know what I mean. Blaaaack magic woomaaaan...

Thanks for the suggestion Dr.Phil. I've listened to Sun o))) and it is interesting in its own special way... but challenging to listen to a full album of it. A friend of mine visited some of their shows and tells me the only proper way to listen to them is to physically experience the sounds... your organs resonating to the vibrationssmiling smiley

if iTunes doens't lie my favorite album ever is darkthrone's 'transilvanian hunger. by a big margin. it just works so well when you're waliking home in the middle of the night.

anyway, about sunno)) (no idea how to spell it). mp came out to see their show in den haag'during state-x. they seemed to enjoy it; i remember bent joking with kenneth and snah having a having a smile on his face.

Transilvanian Hunger is indeed very great. "Skald av Satans Sol" is one of the best examples how black metal should be done. The whole album is bleak, cold and full of hate. Just the way I like it smiling smiley

has anyone of you ever heard of sleep? by far one of the best stoner/doom bands ever. you should check out their masterpiece dopesmoker, a true lindworm of a song, about one hour of down-tuned riffing and weed worshipping!

i can't believe that i'm listening to the very first supertramp album right now. but it's actually quite interesting. totally different from their later polished chart stuff. reminds me of the albums lizard and islands from king crimson.

oh i just read that that palmer-james dude, later to write lyrics for crimson, played bass on it.

om and high on fire are two great (and pretty differnt) bands that has members from sleep. i like Om best, but only seen high on fire live, and goddamn that was great
Re: What are your favorite actual bands these days beside MP?

yeah you're right. high on is a great high energy metal band, great riffs and solos, no doubt. but i esspecially like om's approach to music: creating hypnotic mantras just with voice, bass and drums. and obviously al cisneros still isn't tired of that kinda limited formula, for there's still a lot of material to come.

Grateful Dead. I saw Bob Weir last summer with Deadaheads ( a Norwegian GD-cover band) at Ramme rokke festival. Amazing.
