These are some of my favorite workout playlists, which are updated regularly.  Brief descriptions follow.

  • Unearth – Darkness in the Light (album) – straight forward, intense, and passionate melodic death metal/metalcore that is great for motivation.
  • As I Lay Dying – The Powerless Rise (album) – See above, but even moreso.
  • Trap Them – Darker Handcraft (album) – Pure anger wrapped up in a raw package; genre is somewhere between hardcore and powerviolence.
  • Carnifex – Dead in my Arms (album) – Generic deathcore; low on originality, heavy on the testosterone and breakdowns.  I actually prefer this style because something like Exoplanet by The Contortionist would be too distracting from my actual workout.
  • King Conquer – America’s Most Haunted (album) – Crushingly heavy deathcore, with some of the most brutal vocals around.
  • I Declare War – I Declare War (album) – Extremely heavy deathcore with excellent groove.  Highly recommended if you enjoy King Conquer.
  • Rotten Sound – Cycles (album) – Pissed-off grind.  Really raw, fast and aggressive.
