Jujimufu’s music

I mostly listen to metal. I have crafted a collection of public metal playlists on Google Play Music, anyone can see the listed songs and sample! Subscribe to Google Play All Access Music for just $10 per month to listen to all these tracks in full length (highly recommended, better than Pandora). These Google Play Music playlists are my own dynamic playlists, so I listen to them myself and add to them regularly!

  • Note: Some songs I wanted to add are not available on Google Play.
  • I’ve listed the missing songs in this .txt document:

Playlists that are not metal!

Jujimufu’s top metal albums of all time


Favorite 10 ordered by year and name:

Anubis Gate - s/t album cover

Anubis Gate – s/t (2011) – Progressive metal that is complicated and catchy, without coming off as pompous. I’ve listened to it from start to finish countless times, never itching to skip a track. In fact, overall, this is my favorite through-listen album of all time.

Vanden Plan - The Seraphic Clockwork album cover

Vanden Plas – The Seraphic Clockwork (2010) – Progressive metal that sucks you right in. Love it when they get heavy. The first 3 tracks are killer and the rest is fucking great.

Angra - Temple of Shadows album cover

Angra – Temple of Shadows (2004) – Power metal arranged somewhat progressively, this is Angra’s best album by far. Complete with catchy, addictive recurring melodies and themes, the fun Brazilian sound and the ups and downs will hold your attention to the very end. Everything else they’ve done downright sucks compared to this one. As far as Angra goes, this is it.

Callenish Circle - My Passion / Your Pain album cover

Callenish Circle – My Passion // Your Pain (2003) – Death metal. A real gem! Heavy, thick, and plenty of bass. High energy and easy to break into and away from. This is a very useful album to have on your training playlist.

Pain of Salvation - Remedy Lane album cover

Pain of Salvation – Remedy Lane (2002) – Progressive metal. This is a very moody, emotional, and unusual album… about sex… It’s a masterpiece. Bonus recommendation: I’ve gotten stoned a few times in my past, and this is one of the best things you can listen to like that.

Gamma Ray - No World Order album cover

Gamma Ray – No World Order (2001) – Power metal. Gamma Ray’s only good album in my opinion, and boy is it gooooood! This is what I call perfect power metal. Actually, this is the best power metal album there is in existence.

Nevermore - Dead Heart in a Dead World album cover

Nevemore – Dead Heart in  Dead World (2000) – Progressive Power Death Metal? What genre is Nevermore exactly? Who cares, because whatever it is this album will wipe the floor with you. If I had to pick just one album to train to for the rest of my life, this would be it. Makes me want to sit down and snap and sniff a box of 100 ammonia inhalants one by one until the box is empty, or the album ends, whichever one comes first.

Overkill - Bloodletting album cover

Overkill – Bloodletting (2000) – Thrash Metal. Overkill’s best album. Every song on this album is incredibly fun and catchy. This one is definitely going to put a grin on your face and make you stomp your feet! So yeah, this is the most fun album of my top ten.

Pain of Salvation - The Perfect Element I album cover

Pain of Salvation – The Perfect Element I (2000) – Progressive metal from Pain of Salvation again? Oh yeah! This album has one of the biggest cult followings of any progressive metal album out there. The sound the band achieved on this album is so rare, that nothing like it has been made since, even by the band itself.

Manowar - Louder than Hell album cover

Manowar – Louder than Hell (1996) – Heavy metal! Brother’s of Metal! Fighting for metal, metal that is real! The best of the cheesiest of the cheesy heavy metals. So cheesy that it transcends cheese, and goes beyond, to the realms of beyond-cheese metal history. One of the most popular metal albums of all time.

I love to help people explore great metal! Have recommendations for me?

I’d like to also thank my three best music buddies for inspiring many of my favorites:

Jujimufu metal music friends

Without these guys, I would have missed out on a lot of great groups! Start chatting about metal with these three gentlemen!


  1. STEVE YEAH! says:

    NEVERMORE!!!! Hell yes.

    Some of these bands I haven’t listened to before. I will most definitely check them out.

    My favorite Opeth Album is Blackwater Park. That is one I can listen to all the way through always. Beautiful album.

    I’m big on the growls. Gets me pumped. Bands like At The Gates, The Haunted, Arch Enemy, In Flames (pre pussy era), God Forbid, Kalmah, etc..

    Amon Amarth!!! Love me some Trivium. Lift to them constantly.

    Glad to see you’re a nerd like me and listen to video game music or bands that cover video game music too.

    Suggestion for you.. you’ve most likely heard this before.. but I got into this album sametime I was listening to Nevermore’s DHIADW album….. Listen to Testament’s The Gathering album.. all the way through.. more cleaner growls.. amazing workout music. YES.

  3. dudemanjoe says:

    Lately ive been on a huge binge of Austrian Death Machine and Municipal Waste while training. Mastodon will always be my favorite. Gojira are absolutely badass as well! \m/

  4. Sebastián says:

    You have an amazing list, man. Several bands I don’t listen to, as well.
    Death’s Sound of Perseverance is awesome, beautiful and violent stuff.
    For some nice 80s feel, you could listen to Cacophony and Racer X.
    And not really metal, but do you listen to Rush? I would suggest 2112, Moving Pictures and Hemispheres.

  5. Arian says:

    Awesome list! Especially Anubis Gate, gotta love their stuff!
    I’m really digging Pain of Salvation!

    A recommendation for those who like Proggy stuff, check out a song called “Feed the Horses” by Thank You Scientist

      Thanks for sharing Steve! Your comment took awhile to display because my WordPress automatically puts any post into moderation queue if there are a lot of hyperlinks (spam bots often post tons of things with hyperlinks). I’ll have to check out a few of the ones from bands I’ve never explored. 🙂

  8. Jules says:

    Nice right up yo! My workout playlists always gotta include Gojira, Revocation, and Meshuggah.

    Gojira – The Way Of All Flesh
    Revocation – Revocation
    Meshuggah – Obzen

    Thanks for sharing your tunes. 🙂

  9. STEVE YEAH! says:

    It’s cool dude! I figured when I saw it said “waiting for moderation.” I’ll be checking out your tunes too!

  10. Alex G. says:

    Very cool! I’ve laid back metal last year. Time to dive back in so many tracks to listen to. I am pretty sure I will PR next week.

  11. Marko says:

    At last.

    The key to Juji gains.

  12. Berto says:

    Guys, check out the album “Dark Ages” by SOULFLY – absolute insanity.

  13. Josiah says:

    Metal is anabolic androgenic steroids for the mind!

  14. I did a search on Google Play there’s a metal instrumental titled “Jujimufu”, are you aware of this? And in what ways does this fact complete your life? https://play.google.com/music/m/Tze4ogo3nv4xr2fuyrlm4nyjoia

  15. Jodadiah says:

    Listen to Crowbar, The Lasting Dose! A good sludge metal song. I have many many more.

  16. Karl says:

    Didn’t seem to find any Annihilator. Should check them out if you haven’t heard of them. It’s good and oldschool. Can’t go wrong with Jeff Waters.

  17. Amber says:

    I’ve never heard of Callenish Circle, that was a great album you posted! I love a lot of older and out of the spotlight bands. But, Lamb of God has been deemed my favorite.

  18. Travis says:

    Holy syphilitic mother of hell! I have been into “Metal” ever since my brother in law introduced me to Metallica, Rob Zombie, Motorhead, etc. But this list…THIS LIST!! Sweet Onion chomping ball flopping back flips Juji, you have awoken a level of metalheadedness inside me that I never knew existed! I am easily spending a good couple of hundred dollars to get this songs into my Music Library ASAP! Fueled by metal, my workouts will never be the same again! Thank you for the awesome site Juji! BTW the Acrobolix Tee and Pants are the best and most comfortable I have EVER owned! I Can’t wait to order more! NOW (with my newly and soon to be vastly imported music selection) I am off to the gym to wreak havoc upon iron, LET THE GAINZ BEGIN!

  19. NanoMoltenCore says:

    When I started watching some of your videos I thought, awesome! They got an editor who likes metal to do his vids! I didn’t know YOU liked metal! Well, i have tons and tons of music to suggest. I’ll leave one song, if you like it would you gimme a shout out in one of your vids (NanoMoltenCore) and I’ll be glad to send more in the comments of all the new vids you put out.

    The Battle of the Maginot Sphere – Shadow of Intent
