Going to a gig, going to another festival, or want to tell people about the awesome riff that you just worked out.

1. August Burns Red - Empire (Leveler).
2. Counterparts - The Disconnect (The Current Will Carry Us).
3. Darkest Hour - With A Thousand Words To Say But One (Undoing Ruin). Definitely one of my all time favourite opening tracks.
4. I Killed The Prom Queen - Sharks In Your Mouth (Music For The Recently Deceased).
5. No Bragging Rights - Beautiful & Spineless (Illuminator).
6. Parkway Drive - Gimmie A D (Killing With A Smile).
7. Volumes - Paid In Full (VIA).
8. War Of Ages - Collapse (Eternal). Incredible track!
9. Winds Of Plague - A Cold Day In Hell (A Cold Day In Hell)
10. Your Demise - MMX (The Kids We Used To Be...)

I know some of the bands are not considered Metal... All I have to say is Potato/Potata.
