    I need suggestions for bands on your days when you're not feeling so great. My tastes bounce around So I'll listen to Pagan's Mind just as quickly as I'll listen to Behemoth. I'm just wondering what songs bring you up when you're down.

    God is An Astronaut
    Old school Porcupine Tree

    Rain Without End by October Tide and Voyage 34 by Porcupine Tree, particularly the first two "phases."

    I really *REALLY* don't see how a band like "The Gathering" would bring you up... If anything, they're exactly the band I don't want to hear to when I'm feeling down/depressed. Some of their albums/songs (as good as they are) can put people under suicide watch... :lol:

    I took this to mean LITERALLY a rainy day, much as we have here in Columbus today..... My suggestion was going to be some classic Pink Floyd, centered around "Shine on You Crazy Diamond", however, if you mean a downer of a day..... Then STEER CLEAR. :loco:

    Paradise Lost is my standby. Also Univers Zero, Saviour Machine, some black metal. Classical music based around cello and/or woodwinds.

    When I'm feeling down, I play Hammerfall. They make me feel fucking triumphant.

    for literal rainy day stuff, i.e. when you aren't looking to be 'picked up' per se, one to go with is 'Diving into Darkness' by Darkseed..

    The last thing I want when I'm feeling down is some mellow or depressing metal. I go completely the other way, and listen to something fast, heavy, happy fun metal. Anything to get out of the funk and make me want to go conquer shit.
