  • Workout music?

    Now I'm normally an Electronica kinda guy, but I'm looking for some really anger music to workout to, my knowledge of good rock/metal is minimal.
    I don't mind a bit of Tool, SOAD, Pumpkins etc, what I don't dig is the "Yell down the mic until you go hores" music.
    So what music do you guys work out to?
    Recommend me some stuff

      I work out to ZZ Top. Not screamo though so I can't help you there.

        Not after screamo, I can't stand it, just after good, heavy music.

          Screamo is not metal BTW.

                    ^^^^^^Take the time to watch lees symphony one....I wouldn't work out to it but it is very moving.
                    I like Mauro Picotto to work out to but it is more electronica. I also don't mind working out to Lisa Lashes or Mistress Barbara.....have been known to go with Ritchie Hawtin too.

                    If I were to go for the hard stuff I would go Motorhead & Rammstein.

                        Desmo I know you arent into metal as you say, but also from what I do know about you, you are smart enough to recognize well orchestrated music.

                        In terms of getting pumped thrash should do the trick and if you have the head phones on or whatever have a listen to these guys, the way they go from thrash into epic solos and stuff is truly amazing. If Im ever lacking energy in the gym this is guaranteed to get me revved up.

                        Anything off the album Enemy of God should blow your whistle and the whole album together really is a masterpiece IMO the greatest metal album of the 00's. Its one of the very few albums I consider Flawless, there is not one part of the whole thing I dont love.

                        (If nothing else just listen to the double kick and imagine how good you would need to be to do that for a whole 5 minutes.)

                          Ewww disturbed.
                          Devildriver, Lamb of God, Scar Symmetry are my angry workout music

                            Yeah, depends on how you like your anger music. I tend to find metal, while fast and loud, generally has a complexity (in a relative sense) that means a lot of people don't find it works as pump up music. That said, of metal, thrash is probably the easiest to slip into the flow of. Along with Redfern's Kreator recommendation, Slayer, Exodus, early Metallica, and my favourite, Sadus, all work well for me.

                            If you just want something to zone out to that sets a blistering pace, tech death such as Origin, Necrophagist, Psycroptic, are all excellent. It's all got that ridiculous cookie monster grunting, but that's easy to subconciously gloss over.

                            I think stuff like Lamb of God, Devildriver, Mastodon, might suit your needs better though, along with stuff like Killswitch Engage, Shadows Fall, Soilwork, if you find the earlier bands a bit repetitive.

                            I used to do weights to ABC Classic when there was just a tuner and I had no walkman ^_^. Beats the hell out of top 40 (for me).
