    Ok.

    It can be any song/artist/band/piece of music you've heard from any genre/era.

    Just the heaviest/most brutal/crushing thing you know.

    Doesn't need to be major label, but we have to be able to find it to hear it- (no 3-cassette-only, buried-under-the-rubble-of-a-Norwegian-farmhouse-by-my-4th-cousin-kinda'-ultra-way-too-obscure stuff, please.)


    I'll start us off with my pick; Diamanda Galas.

    I guess it would have to be Cannibal Corpse for me. That is about as heavy as I have gotten.

    My musical tastes are more jazz/progrock/psychedelic-oriented but there┬┤s a place in my heart for Meshuggah. My #1 metal band is Mastodon but ┬┤Shuggah is the heaviest for sure.

    Sirius Liquid Metal plays all kinds of ridiculously heavy stuff. So heavy it`s unlistenable, if you ask me.
     
  7. Meshuggah, hands down. Jonas Brothers are a close 2nd.

    I'm a huge Machine Head fan, so I'll say Barbara Streisand. :D
     
  9. The heaviest music that I actually RESPECT,and consider actual music? Cannibal Corpse. Sure there's 'heavier' stuff out there. But,it's utter crap to my ears.

    I don't know if it's really considered too heavy. But my favorite band hands down is Veil of Maya. Nothing gives me more of an eargasm. There was a local band that was brutal called I Shot the Sheriff. They broke up a while ago. But they sounded so pro.

    Mozart (Requiem in D minor), Joni Mitchell (Blue album), Howlin Wolf (Evil, Fourty-Four etc.), Zappa (The Torture Never Stops), Billie Holliday (Strange Fruit), Vaughn Williams (
    A Lark Ascending), and that piano piece by the guy in the death camps (WWII), that I heard once on radio and has never left that tiny place in the back of my brain where sadness goes to die.

    1968's debut album by the very first true Metal Band, Blue Cheer
    The genre was not yet named 'Metal' and was referred to as Acid Rock
    Blue Cheer - Out of Focus

    The double lead solo at 2:01 would make anybody think, "They had to be on acid"
    These guys were playing through Marshal stacks with the volume knobs on "11"
    long before Spinal Tap

    They singlehandedly developed the cottage industry of Hearing Aid stores for
    Baby Boomers
     
  16. Yea, bands like Sunn O))) are a really great idea, I lke and respect their thing- it's just unlistenable for me.
