As part of our new running feature were we ask artists to pick their favourite songs, Denial Machine have teamed up with us to run a week long feature in celebration of their new release were each day you will be treated to a selection of their favourite songs.

We get kick started with drummer Jaycen Angone as he picks some of his favourite Rush songs with a little Lamb Of God and Metallica to top it off.

Tracks 1 and 2

Band: Rush
Songs: La Villa Strangiato and 2112
Jaycen: Rush, and particularly Neil Peart, have been a tremendous influence on my understanding and appreciation of music. Their level of musicianship still inspires me to this day to strive to be a better player.

‘La Villa Strangiato’

‘2112’ – Split into three parts below (song consists of seven parts/chapters totalling over 20 minutes of audio)

Track 3

Band: Lamb Of God
Song: Redneck
Jaycen: Chris Adler in my opinion is one the better drummers to have come out in the last few years. I appreciate his raw talent as well as his creative drum patterns. For me, this song is a good example of how a metal drummer can still be creative and even a little experimental in a jazz/fusion type way without losing the feel of the music.

Track 4 and 5

Band: Metallica
Song: Fade to Black and Battery
Jaycen: I think for a large number of musicians out there Metallica was an early influence. I respect their longevity and prolific song writing and from time to time I still have to break out some old Metallica tunes, turn ‘em up as loud as I can, and just sit back and enjoy.

‘Fade To Black’
