Quoted from Hougie:
I have a soft spot for progressive or technical death metal in particular.
If you haven't already checked them out you might really dig Spawn of Possession, they do some really good technical death work.
I got through phases. Right now I'm mostly just playing Atlanta trap rap all day. But then I'll switch up moods and it's going to be more like Morbid Angel, Carcass, Nile, Suffocation, Bolt Thrower, etc for a month straight.
I prefer my music on the intense side generally speaking, but death metal or gangsta rap can both tickle the same spots for me.
