We’re not telling you what to do, but here are some suggested playlists that people have shared with us that they find helpful for particular difficulties. They may be an mixture of a number of different genres and tastes, as they are often from a number of people. We are open to suggestions about things that could be put in, though this has to be within reason, as we could probably have about 100 hours of music for some of them! We like people to share their playlists with us by contacting us on social media or through the contacts page. At the moment the main links for playlists are through I-tunes and you tube under heavy metal therapy, though we are looking to sort out spotify links soon too.
The big massive anger playlist…
Okay, so anger is probably the biggest identified emotion that people talk about in relation to metal music, so its not easy to come up with anything concise. We may end up dividing it at some point if it gets out of hand big…..
Overcoming adversity (e.g. bullying)
Low mood – people have tended to interpret this as things that resonate with them when they feel low rather than stuff that ‘cheers them up’. The overcoming playlist is a bit more upbeat if you are looking for that.
