Decapitated - Organic Hallucinosis.
Not for lifting, but for running I find Meshuggah's Koloss to be really effective. The generally mid-tempo high-hat/ride hits are really good for maintaining an even pace and not rushing things. The syncopated guitars are great for focusing your mind a bit and getting you into the "zone." The vocals add that somewhat aggressive layer that gives you that bit of adrenaline you need.
I've tried a lot of music during my workouts, and I keep coming back to Koloss.
My 2 cents!
gojira and hacktivist! I know they may not be the most popular but that shit gets me pumped
The ones that have been really good for me are After the Burial, In Hearts Wake, Vildhjarta, and the Ghost inside. every know and then I'll listen to something thats been catching my attention but for the most part I always come back to these.
I used to listen to NIN - The Fragile (left) exclusively when I worked out for awhile. Just something about that album and running on a treadmill was awesome for me. Also I will 2nd Rammstein for pure awesome grooves for working out. Just simple yet effective industrial rock/metal right there.
ill second the suggestion for the acacia strain, especially anything from continent and death is the only mortal
Anything with a moderate tempo and driving beat works really. I actually prefer that my workout music have a moderate level of energy - not too chill, but not too crazy either. My playlist is usually stuff like Jakob, Russian Circles, 3, select Periphery (Jetpacks, Captain On, etc), Cake, Deftones, Gru, etc.
For The Fallen Dreams, Volumes, At The Sunset, Katy Perry
I second Meshuggah especially catch 33 or I
Running or riding a bike with catch 33 playing feels good man.
I really recommend stuff like Andy James and Paul Wardingham for this as well, especially if you're doing cardio - There's just something about the dips and lifts in the shredding that makes me push harder
not music, but i've found more motivation in these motivational videos than music. i was working out to lamb of god, meshuggah, vital remains, but nothing gave me a gym pump like this
those kind of videos have given me more strength and motivation than any band ever has. there are a lot of them, i highly recommend you download the mp3s onto your ipod or something, and listen to it when you squeeze out those last reps.
I would recommend some devourment that always keeps me going or else try bands like, hate eternal, beneath the massacre, aborted, whitechapel, pathology, vile, behemoth, etc.
Rowing Machine + Amon Amarth + Eyes Closed = YOU'RE A VIKING ON A SHIP GOING TO PILLAGE!
Well, you seem open to things.
So I'll suggest Emmure.
First, I'd like to say that I fucking HATE Emmure and everything they represent. But they seem like great workout music. All 5 of their albums can pretty much be summed up to one big ass 4/4 timed breakdown.
So it's all the reliability of having one 4/4 song on repeat without the annoyance of actually having one 4/4 song on repeat.
And besides, it would be funny as hell to jam out to when your in your cool-down periods.
