Figment Playlist is a new feature here on Figment News where we ask a Figment musician to share the 15 favorite songs he/she enjoys listening to the most.

Jacob Wolfman’s band Werewolf Concerto may be breaking up, but the singer/guitarist is anything but out of work at the moment.  As Werewolf Concerto wind down their remaining live dates on the Sparks of Summer Tour 2011, and inch closer to their final live show at the Thrash Bash Festival in Springfield, MA on July 3rd,  Jacob is already looking forward to working on a new album with his supergroup Coffin Lords.  In the meantime, we caught up with him at recent tour date in Atlanta, GA to see just what he’s listening to these days.

Here is Jacob Wolfman’s Figment Playlist:

“Agents of Subversion” by Old Republic – From one of the many classic OR records. Plus the riff to this song is crushing!

“A Great Vision Unfolding” by Estevanico – Some really good psychedelia here.

“Cyberscream” by Zeroth – Immensely complex, this is everything we love about Zeroth, turned up to 11.

“Bodies Floating to Tokyo Bay” by Minagoroshi – Probably the best Japanese death metal band that I’ve ever heard.  Definitely wish these guys would come back.

“Ghosts of the Blackest Mass” by Living Dead God – Little known British black metal group.  Some of the best black metal out there.

“Red Sky” by A Therapy for Pain – Killer British metal group, reminiscent of the NWOBHM days.

“Is It In Yet?” by x69 – Not my normal cup of tea, but this band is damn fun.

“The Month of Blood” by Vengeance Burns Eternal – This band started off playing Viking Metal, which was awesome, thn they experimented, and it was still cool, but now they’re doing black metal stuff and it’s fucking awesome.

“You’re Growing Cold” by The Night Walkers – WC toured with The Night Walkers early on.  Awesome people, awesome band.

“Ophelya” by The Forgotten Falling – From what is probably my favorite TFF record (“Neo-Gothic Metropolis”) this melodeath-trance metal power ballad (as Hayden Frasco once described it to me) has this one riff, once the heavy part of the song kicks in, that just destroys everything.

“Undeniable Shipwreck” by Squidbitchez – Damn dude.  Antoinette can play violin like no one else.

“Machine Corps” by Body.Rhythm.Machine – I really don’t know what to say about this band, except they rule.  And I think that serves them justice.

“Baked (Like An Apple Pie)” by Stoned Ambition – Ah, weed.

“A Legend Born” by Wakizashi – I don’t care who you are, you know damn well that Wakizashi is epic.

“Supernova Sex Blast (The Big Bang)” by Vorpal Queen – Love hanging out with these dudes.  And their music?  In my Top 5 of Figment bands, most definitely!

So give these songs/albums a listen and if you haven’t bought them yet, add them to your Figment album collection!
