Re: Recommend one artist

Two Steps From Hell . Technically more of a production company than a band, but their composers are legendary... If you've watched any action-ish movie in the last ten years, you've listened to them. This song's my favorite right now. (Apparently it was used in Sucker Punch... the soundtrack was th...

Re: What are you readioactive now(and other book related stu
