POZ Playlist: For Today, Upon This Dawning

by Zack Zarrillo - Nov 6, 2012

For Today, Upon This Dawning, and Skip The Foreplay are three busy bands this fall with multiple tours, and we decided to put all three together for a new PropertyOfZack Playlist to support their individual tours. Check out the Playlists below while listening to the songs on Spotify and reading everyone’s thoughts!


Comeback Kid - Wake the Dead
This is the song(and record) that really influenced the way I look at singing in heavy music. Very anthemic and raw and the energy that this song has is incredible.  
Thrice - Image of the Invisible
Thrice is one of the best bands ever so picking just one song was tough to do. But this is a great one. Dustin Kensrue has such a solid voice and the entire band compliments each other very well. 
Strike Anywhere - Infrared
Awesome song, unique singer, punk beats.. what else do you need
My Epic - Lower Still
Incredible lyrics and all around cool song. Massively underrated bands. One of my favorites. Aaron (singer) is my favorite lyricist hands down. So creative and thought provoking.
No Use For A Name - International You Day
This one is a classic no use song in honor of the late Tony Sly. So catchy and well written.. and fast
Phil Wickham - Divine Romance
such a good folk esq song. Phil Wickham has an incredible voice that will give you chills. So much vibrato. Just mind-blowing 
Ralph Stanley II - Georgia
Many good times with this bluegrass jam on as we drive down the road. Makes me want to drive a truck.. or a van
Killswitch Engage - My Last Serenade
This song is a great one by a great band. There had to be some Metal on this list and Killswitch is an undeniably great band. Catchy melodies and Adam D always makes the guitar tone happen.
Advent – Revival *Song is not on Spotify
So intense, one of the heaviest and hardest Christian hardcore bands of all time. Plus the record sounds really unique and cool.
Hans Zimmer - And I Thought My Jokes Were Bad (Dark Knight soundtrack)
Hans Zimmer has an amazing ability to invoke seemingly whatever emotion he wants to in his music. I greatly admire his creativity and talent. This whole score is really incredible so if you are into listening to movie scores check all his stuff out. - Ryan Leitru  


Ed Sheeran - Give Me Love
It’s a very quiet and chill song. I like to listen to it when we’re driving in the van because it makes me think and relax at the same time. It’s a very good way to make time for myself to reflect upon whatever is on my mind.
Wiz Khalifa ft. Snoop Dogg - Young, Wild and Free
I love this song. It frees my mind and gives me the power to think that what I’m doing is good and I’m doing it the right way. - Giani Molinari
The All-American Rejects - It Ends Tonight

The All-American Rejects are one of my all time favorite bands. I love to listen to this song late at night while relaxing in the van on our drives. I really can’t explain the exact feeling I get when I play this song, I just think it’s perfect!
Tyga - Careless World: Rise of the Last King
Tyga is definitely my favorite rap artist. This entire album is great because I can listen to it every single day and never get sick of it. The best part about it is that I can relate to it regardless of what my mood is; happy, sad, mad and so on. But i enjoy taking time to listen to the heaviest songs of this album right before stage because it gets me pumped up! - Teo Botticini
Slipknot - Opium Of The People

I grew up listening to Slipknot, they are easily one of my favorite bands and this song especially gets me pumped as all hell before I play live.
As Cities Burn - Of Want and Misery: The Nothing That Kills
In my opinion, their album “Son, I Loved You At Your Darkest” is a masterpiece of post hardcore. The song “Of Want and Misery: The Nothing That Kills” shows that they can express themselves in more than one way. By there being more singing than screaming it creates a big difference in tone and brings out a different type of emotion than their other songs. When traveling, I love listening to this entire album! - Charlie Todeschini
While She Sleeps - Seven Hills
*Song is not on Spotify
They are one of my favorite european bands and “Seven Hills” is my song of choice from their last album. When I need some extra energy, or when I’m in a bad mood, I always play this LP, it gets me SO excited. Definitely the best song to listen to right before I play a live show.
Jonsi - Go Do
After our gigs, when it’s time to drive to our next stop, I like to relax and listen to this song while we drive. Jonsi is the perfect choice: not too soporific, not too powerful. It’s an experimental kind of music so it’s not an easy-listening choice. It makes me think of my travels to Iceland and reminds me of a really peaceful time in my life. - Luca Orio
Slipknot - Pulse Of The Maggots

After 8 years this song still makes me freak out. It’s the perfect song to wake up to.
Deadmau5 - Professional Griefer
This song has caught my full attention, I’m in love with all of his music.
Matt Leone (Bass)
Wiz Khalifa - The Race

I love all his stuff, he is really innovative and makes me relax and chill out when I’m on the road.
Foo Fighters - Wasting Light (full album)
They’re my favorite band ever and their new album is perfect. - Andrea Moserle


Cryptopsy - … And Then It Passes
The intro of this song is the most aggressive intro ever written.
Dimmu Borgir - Kings of the Carnival Creation
When we get the blues we listen to this song and everything goes better. 
Nile - Black Seeds of Vengeance
Because Egypt is our favorite country even though we’ve never been there. The pyramids look beautiful.
