The weather here has been incredibly hot and sticky of late, and I find that weather has an odd way of affecting the music I listen to. During this past winter I found myself frequently diving into Viking metal and black metal. The sounds of the cold, hostile north suited my environment perfectly. Well, with this temperature shift I find myself sliding toward the opposite end of the pole. The hot, gritty south has come to dominate my musical listening habits recently: the oppressive fuzz of Weedeater, the Texas swagger of ZZ Top, and even the good-ol'-boy twang of Waylon Jennings. Thanks to Kelly's post on Full Metal Attorney I'm currently listening to Belzebong. Despite being Polish, their style suits my mood quite well too.
