Heavier Aromas

31Knots -- Man Become Me (5.2mb mp3 from the band's site)
Although not a heavy song in the metal vein, there's an incredible, raw intensity here that can only be called heavy. Fantastic drumming, aggressive bass work that you can actually hear, some cool repeated guitar lines with distortion when it matters, and a seriously angry dude hollering. Fans of Tool will appreciate the mix here, I think.

It's not all rage, though -- the quiet parts of the song are simple and smooth, giving you a breather before you get knocked on your ass again. Then in the last minute, things go totally off the rails. This isn't particularly accessible music, but it's worth sticking with them until you can really appreciate it.
