So, one of my coworkers came into my office today while I was jamming APHND on my laptop.  He stops in from time to time and shoots the shit and today informed me about how him and his now-ex broke up this past weekend.  I'll be honest, I really didn't care, but just kept say "Oh yeah?" and "That sucks!".  After a little while, he told me about how he sat around most of the weekend listening to "F**K YOU!" music.  Then the lightbulb went off!  I sat him down and played "As Black As My Heart", "Bad Dream" and "When Crows Descend Upon You" and he dug the shit out of it!  Got us another listener and he wrote down the web address so he can pull it up back at the house.  Also, sent him a request, but not sure if he's the type to sign up, but I tried anyway.

 

Got me to thinking about all the songs I listen to when I'm good and pissed off at the opposite sex.  I've had my heart ripped out a few times and I always found that "Too Late: Frozen" or "We Hate Everyone" usually does the trick for me.  What do you guys LOVE to put in when you HATE?

Strapping Young Lad's "SYL" and "Alien" cd's. It really mellows me out quite a bit.

 

I find that TON, Seventh Void, and APHND, while doomy and super heavy, don't have that biting aggressiveness to really exercise my mental instability like the raging shitstorm that is SYL. TON used to do it for me but as i get older, i'm having a tougher time finding music that can do the trick.

I never really got into SYL, but then again, I don't think I gave them the chance they might deserve. Having you post this is making me want to go back and give them another shot.
Misery Loves Company- Lillian Axe

whenever i was down or just had this hate on for someone or even something, i would blast TON, Danzig, Rollins, Pantera, and it always made me feel better.

i find doing this instead of slapping someone upside the head or destroy something is a hell of alot better.


Start with "The New Black" cd. The songs "Far beyond metal," "Wrong Side," and especially "Almost Again" are MIND BLOWING.

The "Alien" cd is really seems to really dig into relationships and mistrust so that's definitely a LOVE/HATE sort of disc. Especially the songs, "Love?" and "Skeksis."

Also, those 2 aren't the industrial monsters that "Heavy" and "City" are.

Devin Townsend is a fucking GOD

@Bobby - Kind of funny you mention Lillian Axe.  Met those guys years ago in the Monroe/Shreveport area through a mutual friend.  Those guys never got as big as they should have.  I had a blast at their show and had their cd somewhere.

 

@Rob - I will be going home and listening to the songs you just mentioned.  Thankfully I am happily married and have not needed a good LOVE/HATE song in several years, but I'm always stockpiling for other people that piss me off!  I'll let you know what I think.

 

@Mike, you can never go wrong with Henry Rollins or anything Black Flag.  I've always admired that guy, not just for his musical and lyrical talent, but because he is one smart, educated fucker that can hold his own in any circle.   

It used to be "Hurt" by NIN but nowadays, when I'm maudlin or stressed, or just need a voice to soothe me, I put "October Rust" on repeat. That album saw me through some really dark times when I was in my early twenties, when an ex left me for an older, skinnier married model. Somehow Pete's voice just got me through the worst shit.

 

If it's any indication, last year I listened to Bloody Kisses and World Coming Down almost non-stop. But then last year was possibly also one of the bleakest I've had in many.

Unsuccessfully Coping With the Natural Beauty of Infidelity by Type O Negative is my favorite. Everything Ends by Slipknot, (S)ain't by Marilyn Manson, Dig by Mudvayne, Hate Me by Five Finger Death Punch, I could go on for DAYS lol
I don't know why he would leave you. You're gorgeous. Some people are just stupid.

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Anthony. Bearing in mind I was a very different person 10 years ago, very naive, very needy. And sometimes, just sometimes, the one you love doesn't love you enough, and they fall under someone else's spell. I used to think she was like the Snow Queen from one of those fairy tales. But ja, that was, as I said, 10 years ago. I think I'd give myself a good slap upside the head if my future self met my past self at any point.

Nerine, you are making me just want to give you a hug! LOL!  But, I will agree that October Rust came out at a rough time for me as well and help with me to cope with being young and in love with someone that wasn't.  I know this may sound odd, but when I listen to that album in a dark room, I can close my eyes and still see a room to a house that no longer stands.  I can smell it.  Still see the way the entire room was set up.  Not that I miss any of it, I can just remember so vividly when listening to that album.

 

As far as LOVE/HATE, I found that at the time "Broken" by Pantera did the trick for me.  Actually, the entire Vulgar Display Of Power helped me out a lot.  Great way to vent

Ross, funny how October Rust triggers that. I remember nights listening to that album in my bedroom, real soft so my parents downstairs couldn't hear. I'd sometimes fall asleep to it but would always wake up at Haunted and immediately want to play the album again. Even now, I'm filled with such regret that the album finishes there.

 

I've got the same feeling (albeit sans the young adult wangst) when I get to the end of And Hell Will Follow Me. I just cannot get enough. Heh! Kudos to Sal for tapping into that undefinable sense... Dare I call it an emotional miasma? Damn, I need to write that review and put it up on my main blog.
