Playlist: Cycling (updated)

Here are some YouTube links for those who dare to listen to new more complex rock/metal. Some of these are heavy and involve intense lyrics. Most are instrumental that are easy to listen to. They put me into a proper zone while riding a bike on rides when I have earbuds in.
