Musical Inspirations

Without musical influence, Shadows of Light would have taken years to finish. Music feeds my imagination. When I run into writer's constipation (sorry), music acts as a mental laxative. Karnivool's song 'Cote' was one very dominant song that I played over and over whilst writing Shadows of Light. Other musical influences seemed to change with each chapter. 

I've attempted to link into each artist's official youtube video, but some songs haven't been released, and others... well it's difficult to tell if I found the official link.
