Founded in 2003, Osnabrück, Germany’s Dawn of Disease are set to drop their fifth studio album, Procession of Ghosts, on November 1st via Napalm Records (you can pre-order it here). The band specializes in massive, bulldozing melodic death metal spiked with blackened atmospherics. But that doesn’t mean that the band members only listen to brutal extreme music. Ahead of the big release, we caught up with guitarist Lukas K. to find out some of his favorite albums that might surprise fans of his own ferocious output. He had some great picks — see them below.
Jamiroquai – High Times: Singles 1992-2006
I love that compilation! It really is a distillate of the best Jamiroquai songs. This summer I had the opportunity to see them live and it was simply awesome.
Long Distance Calling – Trips
Antoni Vivaldi – The Four Seasons
Gary Moore – Blues Alive
Pink Floyd – The Division Bell
The Division Bell is one of my all-time favorites by Pink Floyd. I really like the sound and the spirit of this album. The title track, especially, has a very special “magic” in it.
