Ah, Dying Fetus, i'm not a fan of them, but i do know them. But indeed, for Bandaids standards it sure is an obscure band. But that's logical, since it's not really a metal community here. My most obscure artist is probably Swans, although they're not really that obscure from a "popularity" point of view. Within their music genre they're one of the bigger players. But it's mostly the sound that makes them obscure i think, because it's just such a massive wall of noise sometimes. They recently had a show in the Netherlands, and the venue they played at urged people to bring ear protection, because their shows are mostly just below the pain level. . The lead singer, Micheal Gira, was (at the beginning of their career at least) also notorious for spitting at the audience, and kicking on the hands of anyone who laid theirs on the edge of the stage.
I have a Chinese phone: a Jiayu G4S. A friend of mine once bought a new phone from China, and i was pretty impressed by it, especially for the price. So i also let one come over from China, and i have it for about 2,5 years now. Of course it's a bit slower then it was the day it came in, but i'm still satisfied with it. And it was pretty cheap too, that's the advantage of Chinese stuff
Funny, i also really like to mix Avril with Delain and Nightwish, and some other (mostly female-fronted) metal, like Stream Of Passion, Epica, Earlyrise, and even some pretty loud stuff like The Agonist and Arch Enemy. I think it's the female voice that does the trick, after a lot of Avril my taste kind of shifts to other female-fronted bands.
But it depends on the songs i listen to though. When it's a lot of happy, up-tempo Avril-music, the bands i listen to next tend to continue that up-tempo sound. Since i'm mostly into metal, bands that would come into thought are bands like Dragonforce, Babymetal, Sumo Cyco, Amaranthe, Sodom, Motörhead, Slayer, Alestorm, Arch Enemy and Delain.
But when it's the more serious Avril songs that come by during shuffle, i would likely choose for more melodic/dark music, like In Flames, Machine Head, Opeth, Avatar, Swans, Katatonia, Insomnium and Minsk.
But it's not all metal i like to combine with Avril, also Amy Winehouse, Billy Talent, The Pretty Reckless, Green Day, Less Than Jake, Jimmy Eat World, Treble Charger, Paramore and Florence & The Machine fit pretty well.
So it really depends on the mood which music will follow Avril on my phone, but it mostly gets a lot louder.
For the start-screen Babymetal (because Babymetal ), and also because it's just a really good-looking picture, the original on the laptop has a crazy resolution too. :cool:
And the main wallpaper itself is this DTM BMW M3, my other main obsession besides music. This one is a bit busier than the Babymetal one, but it's not annoying. I like something to look at with a wallpaper.
And on the phone it's Avril. . I constantly switch between these two, hard choice.
Most of the time my wallpapers are fixed, but the phone-wallpapers do want to change sometimes, although the current one (standing Avril) has been wallpaper for quite some time now. Maybe it's time for a change again.
