Five Finger Death Punch - Canto 34. the title is a reference to one of the later verses of Dante's Inferno, wherein Dante and Virgil approach the 9th circle of hell and observe the traitors' fate in the icy lake of Cocytus.
Caspian is a band I found through Slacker Radio's "post-rock soundscapes" station. "Gone in Bloom and Bough" makes for good driving/working music where I can be alone with my thoughts yet steered towards positive emotions.
A Perfect Circle is putting out another album. I'm a big fan, though Maynard and I have very different outlooks regarding religion. I appreciate this piece aesthetically, and I can understand (based on his history) his resentment towards religion and many religious people even if I don't share the sentiment.

Atomis ~ Maelstrom This is a band I discovered from a youtube video (thanks vsauce2). I actually gave them currency to help them record more music. The vocals are a bit screamy, but don't let that frighten you. give it a listen, it's not what you think.
Means End ~ Nox Aurumque Again, thanks to vsauce2 for this one. The original version of this song is a choral piece that plays opposite to Lux Aurumque. Add in a 8 string guitar, drum kit, and 5 string bass guitar... replace the choir with a single powerful vocalist, and you have something special.
Cat and the Menagerie ~ Better Song came to be in a strange little flash game. not really my style, yet I can't stop listening
video followed by game link.

I've slipped back into some older stuff lately, which is why I'm making this post. I'm listening to a lot of Progressive and Psychedelic Rock, as well as a lot of harder stuff from around 1967-1974 but the main reason behind this post is that my neighbor's daughter just posted on facebook that listening to justin bieber always makes her feel better... and I felt a need to bring balance back to the internet.
David Bowie - Space Oddity
Jefferson Airplane - White Rabbit
Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb
Pink Floyd - Time
Led Zeppelin - Kashmir
Led Zeppelin - Immigrant Song
Jimi Hendrix - Purple Haze

First off, here's The original version of "I Am the Highway"
A while back, I was listening to a pandora channel based on the band "Apocalyptica" and found a group called "The String Quartet" who does classical covers of a lot of different bands. They did a great cover of "I Am the Highway". here it is:
Gasoline. This song pretty much nails what I expected when I heard "Chris Cornell" and "Everyone except Zach from RATM". You have the drums and bass from Rage, the "Soundgarden" vocals... and it's one of the few Audioslave tunes where Tom Morello really does his thing on guitar. Don't get me wrong, I like a lot of his other stuff with the band, but just listening to the guitar on this song and say "bulls on parade" or "testify" and you can tell it's the same musician.
