I love Swans! I've been getting into them more and more lately. Although I've been listening to them off and on for probably 15 years.Yesterday, my Soundtracks For The Blind (and Die Tür Ist Zu) CD set that I ordered came in. Although I've listened to it before years back, I still always come back to it no matter what. It's such a great album. My favorite song from the album has to be Animus.
I'm not familiar with his discography either, maybe 2 or 3 songs tops.Sort of embarrassingly I'm taking a deep dive for the first time at Bowies discography.
Don't be too embarrassed. I've also not really listened to much Bowie, and like IncantatioN have only heard a small handful of songs. Pop in general isn't so much my lane, outside of pretty much Jpop that anime helped me get into, like Hirasawa and Hironobu Kageyama. Bowie's definitely in the backlog with many other things, though.Sort of embarrassingly I'm taking a deep dive for the first time at Bowies discography. I know a lot of his material just from being alive, but I never listened to any album fully until now...
I'm pretty nostalgic for all of those bands, sans Motorhead, and they're all undoubtedly historically important to the evolution of the sub-genre, but over time they've ended up not staying near the top of my working "favorite metal bands" list.Sort of related/ not related - as someone who's heavily into metal, I get a lot of flak from my close buds for not being familiar with Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Motorhead. I've heard some of their songs but only because other bands have covered them and featured em on their albums. It's something I'm never in the mood to check out or seek. With Maiden - I can't get into those clean power metal vocals. I gotta get over those mental blocks haha.
