✖ for blowing off steam | 7 songs to listen to this week

Hey guys, I have a public service announcement. The headlines of the songs are links to Spotify, so you can click them and go straight to the song you want to listen to if you find a song from my list you really want to listen to. Basically, anything that's written here in something else than black, is a link so you can kind of click that if you want to.

No, I don't get anything out of it but there seems to have been some sort of confusion in the comment box of every single of my song recommendation post comment box, so I kind of wanted to let it out in the air. You don't have to copy paste these in Youtube, you can just click the link.

My vacation began today, and I'm more than excited to spend the next five days on the sofa doing absolutely nothing. Or at least lying to myself I have nothing to do when I'm actually swamped to all the uni work. Our plans to head to the North this week kind of fell apart due to my extensive list of coffee shops I want to visit when we go to New York, so that's why I'm expected to find a hole shaped of me on the sofa on Friday.

I hope you all have a fantastic week ahead!

There are times, we find ourselves needing to blow off some steam. So what would be better than having a perfectly dedicated list for doing that? I can imagine, that if I was the type of person who would go to the gym, these songs would be on my gym playlist. However, these songs are also on my housecleaning playlist. Don't know what that tells about me? Rage cleaning once a week, huh?

Also, this week I really want to share an album with you guys. The band is called God Disease, and my friend is playing drums in that band. They also just released an album a few days ago, "Drifting Towards Inevitable Death", which I highly recommend you to listen to. However, their music might not be for everyone but if you're into metal, go for it. Or perhaps you're in a mood for something out of your usual genre? Go for it.

But for blowing off steam? Let's do this.
You can have it if you want it, have it if you want it, over my dead body.
✖ "Over My Dead Body" by Blind Channel
Okay, wait, wait for a second! While I was trying to Google lyrics for this song (which are non-existent by the way) I found out this is a Finnish band. It's funny how long one can go and just listen to the music of a band without realising where they are from. I'm kind of overwhelmed by this fact at the moment, so perhaps we'll just roll straight onto the next one.
Don't be a dick, don't be an asshole. Just be nice, you don't have to be that guy. Show some respect, just be a person. Love one another, you don't need a reason why.
✖ "Don't Be a Dick" by Bowling for Soup
In case if you haven't noticed, I love brutal honesty. And this song is just plain brutal honesty. And if you're feeling that you've got someone being a total dick in your life, this is the perfect song to channel all that energy and feelings into.
Mickey Mouse is dead, got kicked in the head. 'Cos people got too serious, they planned out what they said, they couldn't take the fantasy. Tried to accept reality.
 ✖ "Mickey Mouse is Dead" by Subhumans
If you are looking for a song which is pretty effin' all over the place, this is the one for you. This is what I like to call "mättöpunkki" and I have no clue how to translate that in English. It could be something about a real angsty proper punk music kind of a thing? I don't know, just listen to it and "mättöpunkki" will get its meaning.
You know what time it is, murder that bassline bitch. 
✖ "Bassline Bitch" by Nova Twins
These girls are rather new, so I wasn't able to find the lyrics and I wasn't able to concentrate properly on trying to figure out what they are saying the most of the time. Don't get me wrong, you can totally hear what they're saying but after that Mickey Mouse song, my brain is still kind of all over the place.
Must it take a life for hateful eyes, to glisten once again. 'Cause we find ourselves in the same old mess, singing drunken lullabies.
✖ "Drunken Lullabies" by Flogging Molly
Flogging Molly is coming to Provinssirock festival held in Seinäjoki, Finland next summer and expect to find me there. However, I'm still trying to get someone to come there with me so the plans are all wide open. Can't flipping wait for it tho, but can't yet build my hopes up.
Here we lay in our final hours, like dying flowers. The price we pay, as you struggle for power that your ego devours.
✖ "Bloody Nose" by Hollywood Undead
This is actually one of my all-time favourite songs. It never gets off from my housecleaning list and I feel like it really helps me with my window washing project, once in two years.
Gotta stay alive, gotta stay alive. Gotta learn survive, gotta learn survive.
 "Gotta Get Through" by The Blinders
I love how all over the place today's post is. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did making it. Stay tuned for next week, I promise I've got something a lot calmer lined up for you!
