A Good Selection
on 3 December 2013
This sampler put out by American indie rock label Relapse Records is a good strong selection of Heavy Rock. This is currently free and is a good introduction to some of these bands, if you have never heard of them before, although if you haven't heard them but read 'Kerrang' magazine chances are you have seen mention of the groups themselves.
I like something heavy to really wake me up if I have to be somewhere early, and when I used to do very early shifts it really helped when I was driving into work, also this kind of music can be helpful in releasing your aggression, and calming you down. On this sampler you do have a variety of different Heavy Rock sub-genres, and so you aren't stuck with just one type of rock. I feel I should point out that track 3 'Orchard' by Windhand does not stick at the end, I know it may sound a bit like it, but trust me; it is just a long riff.
In all I will readily admit this isn't for everyone, but if you like Heavy Rock then whilst this is free it is worth giving it a go.
