    Also I've seen destroy them with lasers mentioned a few times on this forum, I might be wrong but I've not seen Internet friends brought up. It's arguably even more about vanu, specifically those that pick them. It's loud, dumb and awesome for it

    Deffo not hair metal. There is no comparison I despise​ hair metal. If I had to stick a label on it, it would be progressive metal.

    I know a lot of people use the term hair metal for glam type rock like def leopard and Aerosmith but for some reason for me the term means anything that is primarily danced to with the hair. Anything Beavis and butthead would approve of.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxe5YdkosjA (this video was posted in December and has had 5 views, but if seo was based entirely on whether everyone was searching "headbanging hessian" he'd be a millionaire)

    Obviously you couldn't have known that I'm a dummy who decides genres mean whatever I decide they mean instead of what they actually mean. For example uk garage and modern rnb does not exist in my vocabulary. That genre is called shit I don't listen to and won't because its shit. I'm hopeful that tag will catch on.

    I'm aware the distinction is irrelevant to the vast majority of normal, sane, people, you just happened to pick the one style of metal I really truly hate (having said that, most other types of metal also leave me quite cold and going "eh? what you on mate?").

    Not much soul or disco I'm afraid, but for Vanu-style music I would have to recommend:

    Kavinsky - Wayfarer

    Deltron 3030 - Positive Contact

    Hybrid - Last Man Standing (pretty much anything by these guys is amazing for PS2)

    Boom Boom Satellites - Intergalactic (Laser show!)

    Fall On Your Sword - The First Time I Saw Jupiter

    Way Out West - Fear & Killa

    Front Line Assembly - Shifting Through The Lens & Mindphaser

    Nitzer Ebb - Getting Closer

    And if this doesn't psyche you up for a fight, nothing will!
    Squidguts - PS2
    ThunderFire/Vitae/Shield/Blast - GW2
    ThunderTech/Bolt/Swift - WildStar

    Ooh, I don't know. This is more like my idea of Vanu, and fairly close to the in-game VS soundtrack:

    Would make an excellent soundtrack for a VS propaganda film.

    He seems to have really good scene skills. That contact with the audience! Also decent music, and: the guy can sing!

    My cousin is really into Devin Townsend, he's even making a Ziltoid homage sci-fi concept album. He's pretty fking good as well. https://soundcloud.com/stewart-milla...hope-returning

    Same guy (Devin Townsend) as my last post, but a total contrast:

    This one might be controversial. I think it's pretty awesome, and kinda clicks with Vanu for me, blending old and new to make something different than either.

    And here's an updated playlist. Took as much onboard as I could given that this is meant to be more combat/vista oriented, more of a soundtrack than radio, so less vocal stuff, that kinda thing (I think there's some on there, but it's fairly unobtrusive).

    That's most kinds of metal. Hell, death metal would fall under that description. Laldy is right. It's prog metal.

    I'm really into prog metal, but I don't really like Townsend for some reason. It drones on too much for me. Although the Ziltoid album is alright.

    This is also fun:

    Despite the valve link, I still think things like this fit rather well.

    The new Daft Punk album Random Access Memories is fucking awesome, but not what any of you will expect. (though maybe it is)

    SEVENTIES CALL BACK FUNKAY.

    Yeah, its fucking awesome. But expect more jazz than house, though. So less beats, more funkay moogs and guitars.

    Essentially, its about nostalgia. Its even in the lyrics of "Fragments Of Time".

    Either way, best album pre order I ever did.
