Do you also get all excited by the opening tunes of Metallica’s “Ride The Lightning”? That is of course because a great opening track comes after. So what if after these initial guitar tunes another track set in? Here’s a little fun.
1 Fight My Hotrod – Metallica & Ministry 2 Fight Against War – Metallica & KMFDM 3 Fight Fire With A Part Of This – Metallica & Ec8or 4 Fight Fire With Rokkokore – Metallica & Liquid Blasted 5 Fight Fire With God – Metallica & Ultraviolence 6 Fight The Beast – Metallica & Ozigiri 7 Jesus Built Fire – Ministry & Metallica
It has been quite a few years since I was looking for electropunk type music and on a peer-to-peer network found a folder (playlist) called “A Modern Mutants Handbook”. It contained electropunk, but also weird and chaotic guitar music. Later I learned that this “noiserock” has a base in the short lived Nowave scene from the 1970’ies New York. Actually a lot of music has a base in this scene and thus in my playlist you find no only Sonic Youth, but also Swans and Foetus. The cover of the playlist is of a documentary made about the scene.

My “High Energy” playlist on Spotify is great (to me), but much longer than my first mix with the same name on Mixcloud. So I made another one. We start with rock, go to metal and slowly moved towards electronic music. I put some more focus on music that is not available on Spotify, but also added some very well-known pop music for good measure. Enjoy.
Every once in a while I like to listen to very slow doom metal: “funeral doom”. I like it even better when the music has electronic elements. Here is an example of the kind of music I am talking about.
