Darryl: Let’s see, that’s a tough one. Mark Lanegan writes fantastic songs. He has his own style. Failure write excellent songs. I also really love Year of the Rabbit, which is another band of Ken Andrews of Failure, but they’re finished, I believe. Those songs have these huge hooks that just take off. Also, Dorthia Cottrell from Windhand, her solo album is stunning. Amazing songwriting on that. Very dark and personal. But I mean, Slayer write awesome songs too.
Darryl: I love vinyl but personally I listen to CDs more because I like to put a CD on and then just let it play, I don’t have to get up and flip it. I know that sounds lazy but I’d rather listen to a 60 minute CD than a double album because I sure as hell don’t want to have to keep getting up and flipping over the record. But I do listen to vinyl if I’m feeling energetic. Digital is great if you need a quick fix of something on the go. I can’t bring my vinyl into work to listen to, unfortunately.
