Winter Metal

We got our latest computer upgrades at work. This means I have to re-download my favorite music using my Zune Pass. Thankfully, a ton of the music I like is available for download on Zune, so I can build a new music collection really fast. It also provides an interesting view of my music whims day-to-day, and as Smart DJ shows me various bands I've never heard of (or forgotten about).

A month in, I have 3.24GB of subscription music, and picked up the following bands (in rough chronological order).
  • Poisonblack
  • Sentenced
  • Dark Tranquility
  • Iron Maiden
  • In Flames
  • Scorpions
  • Scar Symmetry
  • Lacuna Coil
  • Beseech
  • Kamelot
  • Raintime
  • Ozzy Osbourne
  • Firewind
  • Die Trying
  • Jag Panzer
  • Labyrinth
Pretty standard so far, but we're only a month in. The collection gets more and more interesting as Smart DJ goes on its random kicks (like that one time it decided my music taste was "sexy female lead"), or as the mood at work motivates various music selections (when Amon Amarth is first reintroduced to the collection, it might be a good idea to steer clear of me for a bit).
