2011 was a great year full of great music and great live shows. You all are going to hear just what some of my favorite things of 2011 were but have you ever wondered what some of the Brainfart’s favorite people were listening to? I decided to check in with members of Gypsyhawk, Holy Grail, Six Shot Revival, Kyng and LoNero to see just what they were all listening to the most of in 2011. The funny thing was the most of them messaged me back saying that they didn’t hear a lot of great stuff in 2011 so I told them to just list whatever it was they listened to the most in 2011 no matter when it was released. It was an interesting mix of music ranging from Death Metal to the folk music of yours truly (thanks Bill!). This was really a lot of fun so enjoy these lists. If anything, maybe these lists will inspired you to broaden your horizons.

About Don de Leaumont

Don (aka. The Brainfart) has been a heavy metal fan since hearing it for the first time in 1983. Don is also repsonsible for all of the typos, shitty grammar, and kick ass content on this site. Don likes cheap beer, whiskey, Coca Cola Icees, going to shows, and hanging with his kick ass wife, two cats and dog. He originally wanted to name his dog Shandi but his wife said, “No fucking way.”
