So this is the other originalbigbang mix that I made. And guys, I'm absolutely head over heels for this mix. It's not for everyone, it's totally a sort of gritty electronic/industrial soundtrack with a lot of instrumental tracks and piano themed elements. But I hope that if you give it a listen, you'll love it as much as I do.

I put it together as a pinch-hit for carduelinae's story, "The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things" which is a sort of 70's superhero mystery type thing that's well worth the read. Her story summary:

It's 1972, and Dan McCarthy is trying his damnedest to dodge the draft, the Department of Superhuman Affairs, and his ex-girlfriend, but all three keep coming back to haunt him. His ex is finding him as hard a habit to kick as any addiction, and Dan't not quite sure why he can't get over her and move on with a new girlfriend. His friends are trying to keep him on an even keel, but he's had a hard time finding direction since getting expelled from school. The disappearance of several of unregistered superheroes he knows is sending him down increasingly dark alleys in search of answers, even if he's not sure if he can find them before his own number comes up. Before this is done, Dan will have to confront supervillains, the government, and Misty's new boyfriend to figure out where he needs to go.

Sadly, I didn't have a lot of time when finishing this mix, so I didn't get time to do proper artwork together. But if you're like me, and like to have covers of some sort for your mixes, I threw this together, so there'd at least be something.

1. The Tumbled Sea - A Growing Recognition Of The Genius Of Birds
2. B. Fleischmann - Gain
3. Blue Foundation - Eyes On Fire
4. Anathema - Electricity
5. 65DaysOfStatic - Drove Through Ghosts To Get Here
6. The Gathering - Fatigue (
7. Riverside - Before
8. Emancipator - Good Knight
9. Bluebottle Kiss - Everything Begins and Ends at Exactly the Right Time
10. Muse - Resistance
11. Apocalyptica - On the Rooftop With Quasimodo
12. Alkaline Trio - Burn (Alleged remix)
13. Nine Inch Nails - Me, I'm Not (Attvcks remix)
14. Daft Punk - Superheroes
BONUS 15. Doveman - Holding Out For A Hero

If you want the image, you'll have to save it separately, it's not included in the mix.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a class to teach and a concert to attend. :)

That mix looks absolutely perfect. I know some of those bands but none of those specific songs. Will happily download when I get home. :) Thanks very much!
