ANYONE EVER BOILED THE FROG?

With the likes of Spotify becoming more and more important in the way that we consume music, people are creating their very own playlists. Now, no doubt you’ve heard all sorts of playlists both good and bad, often jarring from one song to a next in a horrendous fashion, so what if you could go move seamlessly in one playlist then? Its time to Boil The Frog!

Normally, the old man that I am, I don’t like to use streaming services for anything but being curious and after a pal uploaded it onto the devil incarnate (Facebook) I thought, why not, lets try it out. The way the site works is it calculates a pathway from to artists to create a perfect playlist that is seamless in where you needed to go.

I started off easy with At The Gates to Slipknot.

It took me through :

  • At The Gates – The Circular Ruins
  • Dark Tranquility – Misery’s Crown
  • Scar Symmetry – Ghost Prototype I
  • Sonic Syndicate – Jailbreak
  • The Agonist – And Their Eulogies Sang Me To Sleep
  • Eths – Adonai
  • Step – Blood Pigs
  • Slipknot – Duality

Then I tried another which was Between The Buried and Me – Pink Floyd

  • Between the Buried and Me – Selkies The Endless Obsession
  • Thomas Giles – I Am Disappear
  • Trioscapes – From The Earth To The Moon
  • Thank You Scientist – Blood On The Radio
  • Consider The Source – Good Point (Wandering Bear)
  • Ozric Tentacles – Ayurvedic
  • Camel – Nimrodel – The Procession – The White Rider
  • Genesis – Land of Confusion
  • Pink Floyd – Comfortably Numb

So then I thought, lets try one step further and went from Cannibal Corpse to Madonna :

  • Cannibal Corpse – Kill or Become
  • Carcass – Buried Dreams
  • At The Gates – Blinded By Fear
  • Dark Tranquility – Her Silent Language
  • Scar Symmetry – Ghost Prototype I
  • Machinae Supremacy – Edge and Pearl
  • Powerglove – Inspector Gadget
  • The Protomen – The Good Doctor
  • Anamanaguchi – Meow
  • Spazzkid – Forgiveness
  • Yellow Magic Orchestra – Technopolis
  • The Human League – Human
  • Eurythmics – Here Comes The Rain Again
  • Cyndi Lauper – Time After Time
  • Madonna – Bitch I’m Madonna

Well I have to say that its quite the change from the bloodsoaked stomping of Cannibal Corpse to The Human League let alone Madonna! Anyway, have a go yourself and see what you can get out of Boil The Frog, even if its just to kill time at work!
