Bobby Krlic may well be primarily known as an electronic music producer, but he grew up a heavy metal obsessive. As commissioned by Kevin Martin as part of our Bug Week, he tells John Doran about the 13 metal albums he loved the most when he was young


Pantera - Vulgar Display Of Power

It's a one-two boxing combination punch between Dimebag and Phil Anselmo. They're both just fucking punching you in the fucking head and there's nothing you can do about it while you're listening to Pantera. It's just so brutal and aggressive. It's really macho, which a lot of the time I have a real problem with, but at the age that I heard it I just thought it was really cool. It hasn't aged well. I think it sounds awful. It sounds so cheesy, shit and not dangerous at all. But I can remember how it made me feel when I was a kid, so that's why it has to be in the list.
