It was so hard to just pick 9 records. I tried to cover up as much genres as I could with my list. So I had to leave out some really important stuff like Mastodon - Leviathan, Rage Against the Machine - The Battle of Los Angeles and even Sigur Ros - Ágætis Byrjun. I hope you still enjoy my little list!
Bon Iver - Bon Iver: In 2011 I started to get into some Indie music and this record just blew me away. The amount of emotions that Bon Iver delivers is just ridiculous.
Tool - Lateralus: I would call this the „Dark Side Of The Moon“ for my generation. And the word „Dark“ really fits well if you want to describe this record.
Coheed & Cambria - In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 - When this record came out and I discovered them I just couldn’t stop listening to it. Perfect mix between progressive elements and Emo, which was a big deal for me around 2004.
Deftones - White Pony: The record which got me into „heavy music“ I guess. Nearly 18 years old now it still gets me every time I listen to it.
Isis - Oceanic: What can I say? My favorite Band. Always and forever. I could have picked any record by them and it would still be a valid choice for me.
Wolves in the Throne Room - Two Hunters: The record which got me into Black Metal. Two Hunters opened the door for me to discover the world of Black Metal.
Neurosis - The Eye of Every Storm: I knew they were a big deal, but nothing in this world can prepare you for the things which happen when you see them live. The true kings of atmospheric music.
Pink Floyd - Pulse: I picked Pulse because my Dad is a big Pink Floyd Fan and as long as I can remember, this band was always there. This band is to blame for my love of Progressive Music and 70s Rock in general.
This Will Destroy You - s/t - When I think of instrumental Post-Rock, I don’t think that any record will ever come close to this release. Before this, I had no idea how instrumental music can create so much emotions.
