This thread should just become The Official 'Ask the16th6toothson what he listened to on your birthday' Thread.

Haha, yeah, I use that to plan what I play sometimes (ie, to get certain bands/albums to certain play goals, etc).


I always play full albums, sometimes fixating on certain bands, etc. I usually go on my impulses... if I get (positive) "earworms", I'll play those albums when first convenient, etc. Sometimes I'll look over my mp3 collection, my CD list, my CD rack, etc to determine what to play as well (eg, "oh, I haven't played Battlerage in awhile, lets play them!") Whatever leaps out at me and whatever my subconscious mind "orders" me to play. Sometimes reading posts on this board will spur me on to play certain albums (esp. if its something I haven't played in awhile). New downloads and CD orders I'll play too (sometimes in a mechanical manner). CD orders obviously take paramount priority, but unfortunately I tend to play albums once, file them, then forget about them.

I rarely/never schedule a list of albums to play for a day, usually once I get to the 2nd or 3rd album, I'll usually want to completely deviate and play something else. Usually, I'll get sick of albums/bands/genres real fast, so I find I have to mix things up a lot.

[edit] I'll also play via assocation or "chaining". Like one album will compel me to listen to another album with a certain element (whether it be vibe, lyrics, musical, country of origin, what I'm doing, nostalgia, etc). For example, going from Scanner to Gamma Ray to Iron Savior to Paragon to Grave Digger to viking-era Bathory to Einherjer to Vinterland to Unanimated to Eucharist, etc is a logical chain. Let me explain: Scanner through to Iron Savior is style/theme, Paragon reminds me stylistically of Grave Digger, Grave Digger's "Rheingold" is Norse-themed, Einherjer and Vinterland I got into the same year (1998 - nostalgia, I guess), and I received Vinterland, Unanimated, and Eucharist's CDs on the same CD order (nostalgia).

Well technically you can, it's possible to look up your charts of tracks played for any retrospective week, and from working backwards on the recently listened list. So yeah, gimme a date and I'll tell you what I scrobbled on it :p

Well, you're partially right, but don't forget, there are metal fans out there who do buy lots of CDs, make mp3s of them, and then play those. Last.fm is pretty much for those obsessed with stats though. :p

Yeah, I buy the albums, but as Perdition666 said, I rip the mp3's from the CD and put them on the iPod. So what I'm doing is still legal. :)

This is kind of veering from the topic, though.

I find it is all dependent on my mood. Though generally when I am outside my house listening to my iPod I just put it on shuffle, unless I am really wanting to hear something specifically.

Also do my B-Day lol.

After reading this thread this morning I decided to ditch the itunes shuffle habit and listen to all albums in order. So far today I've listened to:
Decrepit Birth - Diminishing Between Worlds
All Shall Perish - Awaken The Dreamers
Karl Sanders - Saurian Meditation
Aborted - The Archaic Abattoir
Emeth - Telesis (currently listenig to it)

I have to say that this method is much more enjoyable because it is soooooo much better when the songs link perfectly together. I used to on occasion listen to CD's on the computer in order, but that would only be for brand new CD's I had just got. I am no longer going to have my Itunes on shuffle and will always listen to albums in order :headbang:

Quote:
How do you listen to your metal?

Either on my computer in the evenings before bed, or on my MP3 player when I go to bed. I also use my MP3 player while driving around at work.

Quote:
Do you choose a band at a time to listen to?
Listen to albums in chronological order?
Genre by Genre?
Always have the random setting on?

I play music based on the mood I'm in at the time. If I'm feeling angry/pissed off then Death Metal is a good choice. If I'm full of energy and need a good release then Thrash usually takes care of it. When I'm feeling stressed out then Doom fills the need. If I'm in a happy/good mood then Traditional or Power Metal is a good choice. As far as what bands and albums I choose depends also. Sometimes I know exactly what I want to listen to, and other times I just search my music library until I find a band/album that seems to hit the spot. Sometimes I'll listen to compilations of different bands, sometimes I'll listen to different albums by different bands in the same genre, and other times I'll listen to a bands discography. It depends on the time I can devote to the music.

I just grab a CD based on what I feel like. If I'm just sitting at home, doing nothing, I'll go over to my collection, decide on an album and away I go.

Yeah I only just signed up the other day to see what the fuss was all about. Now I'm obsessed with stats...

I agree with the ipod statement. Macs in general actually, but that's another story for another time.

Its sad that I don't even own an Ipod (or a Zune). I used to have some shitty Rio-Volt mp3-player that played CDrs /w mp3s on 'em 6-7 years ago. Once that piece of shit died, I never replaced it. More often than not, I do see the utility of a portable mp3-player, so I'll probably address that need eventually. I'm one of the few people who is content with 5 gigs or less though.

Yeah I got some cheap iRiver from Japan for like 80 bucks a couple of years ago and I've listened to it maybe 10 times. Don't really like this whole trend of walking around with earbuds in your ears. Pissing me off to be quite frank. Plus now days I'm really worried about damaging my hearing and apparently those little earbuds do wonders... And people have them up so damn loud. I don't want to hear your shitty indie music when you sit next to me on the train!!!

To be honest, I'm too paranoid to walk around in public with headphones these days. I prefer to have all my senses readily available. Funny, back when I was a teenager, I used to have my discman on me at all times, nowadays, you couldn't pay me to do that. I'm too paranoid of getting hit by a vehicle or something, or too neurotic of getting my CD damaged by the CD player.

A mp3 player would indeed be fantastic for doing housework and crap like that. (vacuuming with a stereo sucks since the machine drowns out the music)

I also go into horrible phases where I NEED silence (sometimes lasting weeks to months), so that's when I tend to do housework. :p

I just go by what sounds good to me at the moment. Sometimes I'll just turn off a record that's perfectly good by any measure just because I feel like listening to something completely different. However, once I find this particular mood, I tend to draw it out over several days, weeks, or possibly longer.

There was a time not long ago when I listened to JS Bach constantly for about six to eight months with no break. I did listen to other stuff on the side, but it was mostly Bach.

I used to always listen to the whole album all the time, but nowadays I only sit through an entire album without changing about five percent of the time. Last full album I listened to (besides in my car where i just pop in a cd and drive) was Rocka Rolla about a week ago, where I started to listen to one of the songs, and then just listened to the whole thing on accident really. Other than that, I usually listen to like three or four songs from the album and then get something else, especially with more extreme genres I get bored after 2 or three songs, so I'll probably never listen to a whole death metal album without interspersing it with other music.

O wait today I think I listened to all of Led Zeppelin 3, but not in order... go figure lol.

I usually listen to full album whenever I can. Sure, sometimes I get bored or realise that's not the album/band/genre I want to listen to but it doesn't happen that often.

As for keeping track of what I listen I tend to use itunes' last played date and the number of plays. The whole log idea is really cool though, I'm actually tempted to start one of my own. Also, the16th6toothson, could you please tell me what you listened to on my birthday (august 1st) and on august 15th 2007?

Yeah, I do that, too. I know what album I've listened to recently, the most played album, albums that have 0 plays so far, and so forth. That's good enough for me, I reckon. :)

Normally, for me, it's just close your eyes, point at your collection, and play the album you point at. Sometimes, if I'm craving some random CD, I'll just play that. I used to have an iPod, but I decided to fuck it after losing it twice ( :( ). Sometimes, when I don't have my laptop with me, I'll use a CD player+headphones.

I don't really have a system. Sometimes I'll really be into an album and play it several times in a row.. sometimes I'll get a riff or lyric stuck in my head and decide to listen to that particular album...

Today at work, for example, I listened to Immolation's "Close To A World Below" 5-6 times, then Origin's "Antithesis" 5-6 times as well.

Usually I let my day progress, and whenever I feel a specific feeling, a play a song to support that mood.
i.e. When I'm feeling all philosophical, I'll play Enslaved's "Heir to the Cosmic Seed".

P.S.
Can you do my b-day please? December 9th, thank you very much :)

For me, it usually goes thrash, death, black, speed and then starts over again. I always listen to a lot of thrash and black, but I don't usually listen to much death or speed metal.

When I listen to a new band, I get their whole discography and listen to their albums in chronological order. It allows me to see (...or hear) how the band has evolved to the band they are today. However, if I hate a fair amount of their discography I'll look at some reviews, forum posts, etc. to see which albums I should listen to.

As far as listening to whole albums and not skipping songs, I prefer to listen to full albums (especially albums that tell a story [like Judas Priest's Sad Wings of Destiny Album)], but when I don't the time (i.e. I'm on the bus, or just waiting for a patch to download) I just listen to the "highlights" of the album.

For me it's usually a phase sort of deal. One week or couple of weeks I'll be in the mood for sludge maybe.. then grindcore, then prog.. all back to DM. Whatever I feel like basically.
