    Kill 'em All

    Metallica's album "Kill 'Em All" is probably one of the best pieces of recorded artwork to listen to LOUD.... Oh... and Slayer's masterpiece.... "Reign in Blood" The louder... the better aaahhhhh....

    I Love Loud Music.

    I like the fact that I can drown out everything with loud music... except my thoughts which is annoying sometimes... but I can just escape for a moment into my own world ...

    If I am feeling good it's up loud

    and i'm probably trying to sing. Even if i'm angry about something it's up loud and it takes me to a better place.

    When I'm Home Alone

    It could be to anything; rock, punk, hip-hop; anything I'm in the mood for just as long as it drowns out my thoughts. The music should be loud, deafening. The bass would shake the entire house. A steady pounding beat that you feel in your bones. Then I begin to flail my...

    Loud Music Does Help....

    I recently went through an upsetting time in my life.  The only two things that helped me get through it were LOUD music and lots of prayer.  I listen to music loud anyway but when Im feeling emotional, I turn it up as loud as my ears can handle. ;)

    I Need To Crank It Up Sometimes

    When I'm angry or need a lift loud, head banging music does it for me. Like Ride of the Valkyries from Apocalypse Now, certain sound resonates inside you.  Pantera, Metallica. Slipknot can get me moving both physically and emotional.
