    Living in Curitiba (Brazil). Originally from Rio.
    I often listen to Dark Tranquillity and In Flames. Placebo, MuteMath, and 30 Seconds to Mars are frequently on playlist as well, though I suppose these don't get much love in this forum :lol:

    I used to listen to Machinae Supremacy, Soilwork, and System of a Down as well, but I've grown sick of those. Periphery works wonderfully, but I don't have the album yet, just some old recordings of a few songs :(

    TBH, most of what I listen to is way too slow for working out, so I end up listening to the same stuff over and over.

    Scar Symmetry - Holographic Universe
    and
    Meshuggah - Obzen

    Are typically what I put on when I'm lifting (high-intensity stuff). For low to moderate intensity cardio I'll put on some Isis or Nine Inch Nails.

    Running is the only activity I dont like music with (and swimming, but only because I dont want to wear the underwater crap) but for everything else its generally Rage Against the Machine, Meshuggah, and assorted other things.

    I actually listened to textures today for the first time while working out. Great distracting bits and also many "RAWR I ARE MAN" parts.

    When I had to walk alot, I packed my mini-disc player with Satch, Malmsteen and Cacophony.
    Speed Metal Symphony was my personal favourite... But this was walking so I am not sure about running, I am a lazy S.O.B .......

    The Acacia Strain - The Dead Walk

    Most of the songs on that album are perfect working out tunes.

    I used to use Explosions in The Sky, mainly because I would get distracted/zone out from working out if it was something real heavy so I went to the opposite direction and did something calming and it made working out awesome

    I tend to use the The New Order album by Testament, starting with the title track. That one worked really well for me, plus some extra tracks I liked at the moment.
