A playlist for your study: Ensiferum - Token of Time

 Hey guys! As you may have noticed from my posts, I'm a student. Through years, I realized that studying while listening to music helps a lot. In general, I tend to be more focused on doing something when I'm listening to music I really enjoy. In particular, metal/rock gives me the rhythm and the pace I need to become more efficient. So I've decided to share with you one of my playlists. It includes some Metal and Rock songs.

It may not work as well as it works for me since a lot of students prefer to study on silence or with relaxing songs.

Intervals - In Time (EP)

As a progressive metal fan, I’m bringing to you a prog metal EP by Intervals. Entitled ‘In Time’, the EP is a typical progressive metal EP. Yeah, it has very good songs. Though, it doesn’t bring anything that we haven’t seen before. A nice sound with some futuristic details(i.e. some electronic parts) is what you can expect. That’s all I can say for now. I don’t feel inspired today...

Landforge, the one-man band

Hey rockers! Ready for another musical suggestion? During my non-stop search I came across with this very pleasant band, Landforge. This is a one-man band! The genre is Atmospheric Doom Metal/Post-Rock. His music is very relaxing (in a metal way, of course!). There are no lyrics, no voices, just the wonderful harmonization of instruments and in my opinion that’s more than enough. What I mean is you can get the message, the feelings he wants to transmit through his songs just by using instruments – just like any good atmospheric metal band. That’s where the beauty of atmospheric metal resides: the ability to create an involving and deep ambience with instruments. In the same track of this band you can feel melancholic and sad but at the same time brave and fearless. Of course, it is a personal interpretation but I’m pretty sure you’ll feel the same way or similar. Just let his sound addict you like a drug. It may look insane how just a single person can play all those instruments with that quality and how he’s capable of compose those songs. Amazing…
