What Heavy Blog Is Really Listening To – 5/20/16

For those who missed our last installment, We post biweekly updates covering what the staff at Heavy Blog have been spinning. Given the amount of time we spend on the site telling you about music that does not fall neatly into the confines of conventional “metal,” it should come as no surprise that many of us on staff have pretty eclectic tastes that range far outside of metal and heavy things. We can’t post about all of them at length here, but we can at least let you know what we’re actually listening to. For those that would like to participate as well (and please do) can drop a 3X3 in the comments, which can be made with tapmusic.net through your last.fm account, or create it manually with topsters.net. Also, consider these posts open threads to talk about pretty much anything music-related. We love hearing all of your thoughts on this stuff and love being able to nerd out along with all of you.

We are really fucking good to you. All right, so you’re our favourite child (yes, I’m looking at you), but if we’re not careful you’re going to grow into the kind of wanker who sprays £120,000 bottles of champagne about like…well, a wanker. This week we’ve got two Visions goodie…
