Yes I am so cold, especially if you go to Sweden. The Backyard Babies are pretty much known as a punk/glam rock group from Sweden. Congrats creating a song called “Minus Celsius ” that was featured in the video music game Guitar Hero 3.
Coming across industrial metal/rock music, the first band that comes to mind is Static-X. “I’m the One” is one of the most well-known songs of the group. Found on the “Start a war” album, it shows the behind style of what the group had to offer. Check out the song below.

Released in 1985, this years marks the 30th anniversary of Yngwie Malmsteen’s second studio album. Again, an excellent album that makes Malmsteen drill a baseball all the way out of the ballpark with his unbelievable speed. Typical Yngwie songs contain the neoclassical arpeggiated solos that he is known for. “I’ll See the Light Tonight,” “I Am a Viking,” and “Soldier Without Faith” are one of many Malmsteen’s song that have made him one of the fastest guitarist of all time. The key is to understand the high pitch melodies and classical music environment that Malmsteen provides. The big dogs of neoclassical music was Randy Rhoads and Ritchie Blackmore. Malmsteen would however blow people’s mind away with his music. He would be progressed with many other guitarists of the 1980’s including Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Jason Becker, and Marty Friedman. “Marching Out” is an album much like “Rising Force” well worth paying for, even though it might be slightly different.
