We are thrilled to launch this regular feature with:
DAVYD WINTER-BATES - bass, Bury Tomorrow:
"My Music Taste is very odd & varied so this question was always going to be a mixed bag. Rather than think about it too much I just picked the top ten songs I know I've been sessioning over the last week or so."
Here's Davyd's epic list in reverse order - together with a comment about his choices. We love it. :)
10. The Acacia Strain (Rise Records) - Servant In The Place of Truth:
'I personally didn't think it was possible for TAS to get anymore disgustingly heavy after their last album, but this took it to a whole new level. You can tell a TAS song a mile off, yet [they] always manage to push the extremes of what they can do'
9. Gallows (Self Released) - Mondo Chaos:
'I am absolutely loving Gallows all over again at the moment. I think Wade is a fucking incredible vocalist, I loved his vocals in AOF and his guest stuff on Johnny Truant. I feel like he's been allowed to unleash the beast and has just brought an intensity a lot of people didn't think could be achieved. There will always be the Frank vs Wade Debate, but you have to judge them as different eras of Gallows, and i for one am stoked by the new material'
8. Nicki Minaj (Cash Money Records) - Pound The Alarm:
'I've always love Nicki Minaj since i first heard her in Young Money, and i love that she's taking hip hop and just injecting it full of electro! This track is absolutely insane and is getting played a lot in my DJ sets at the moment.'
7. Forever Can Wait (Unreleased) - Rest:
'Although there isn't a video for this yet, however the minute there is you need to check out this song. FCW have strayed away from their former pop punk sound and entered a darker, almost letlive territory with their new single. If they carry on along these lines, they're going to explode.'
6. Moones (Self Released) - Better Energy
'Continuing with straying away from previous musical endeavors, i'm really feeling this side project from Lags (The Gallows). Not only is the song catchy as hell, but it is easily the best video i have seen in years.'
5. Steve Aoki & Angger Dimas (Ultra Records) - Beatdown ft. Iggy Azalea
'It wouldnt be true to me if there wasn't some electronic music in this list. I listen to more electronic music than anything else and at the moment this is an absolut banger. I love Iggy Azalea as it is, but with Aoki behind this track it is just incredible.'
4. Miss May I (Rise Records) - Bleeding Out
'Miss May I's new album is track after track of metalcore hits, yet this is by far my favorite track off the new album. Fast and heavy is how metalcore should be done.'
3. For Today (Razor & Tie) - Fearless:
'It was actually my brother (Daniel Winter-Bates, BT Frontman) that got me into this song, from the minute he played it to me i was hooked. Such powerful lyrics and yet still manages to maintain its melody, kind of like a heavier Evergreen Terrace.'
2. Knife Party (Beatport) - Centipede:
I was gutted when Pendulum decided to call it a day, for me they where one of my favorite live bands, the perfect combination between Rock and Electronics. However, that being said this track is incredible and i cant help thinking that the intro is a somewhat (not very subtle) farewell to Pendulum by name checking Tarantula in a sample.
1. New Found Glory (Epitaph Records) - Summer Fling Don't Mean A Thing.
Another song that was shown to me by Dan, this has to be my number one song i listen to at the moment, and sometimes not even my own choice, it is infectiously catchy and it stays in your head for days! I could listen to this song all day, and it would just make me feel like summer... which in the UK we need all the help we can get trying to feeling Summer!
