invisible monsters - a dean/cas fanmix for round 3 of [ profile] waywardmixes

Pairing: Dean/Castiel
Spoilers: through 4x01 "Lazarus Rising"
Warnings: this mix is very dark and the lyrics contain graphic references to violence/torture/gore. Some of the videos on the playlist also contain images of horror/violence. Please listen to this mix responsibly.


Summary: When Dean Winchester sold his soul to save his brother, he resigned himself to an eternity of torture in the pit. However, the angels have plans for Dean and lay siege to the gates of hell to win back his soul.  After Castiel and his garrison fight their way through chaos, Dean is reluctant to leave with him, because he doesn't think he deserves to be saved. The songs on this fanmix chronicle Dean's emotional journey from disbelief and anger to acceptance.

Like a disease
I’ll control your mind
Get on your knees
You won’t survive the night 
2. Grendel | Dirty
I like it dirty, I love it
3. Dawn of Ashes | Killer Instinct
I feel sick, when the evil grows
Teaching me how killing goes
Every night the demons speak
Telling how to kill the weak
4. Zero (Synth Etik Remix) | Terrorfakt

5. INRI | Psyclon Nine
Condemned by our lord and our savior
I know now that I'm the son of no man
Knowing of the traps you've set for me
Why should I even try to save myself?
Why should I believe if God's not here to save me?

Take the pain

Take the pain
Take me home

Come lie next to me
Know why, you and me are one

Oo, I love the focus on Dean's time in hell/getting out. Nice song choices and graphics, too (especially that last one).
And thanks for crediting that texture maker, I'm probably going to go download all their stuff. ;)

I would have never thought of techno for Supernatural, but this works surprisingly well. It really captures Dean in Hell to me. Nice!

I really love the genre, and I thought I'd take a risk and make a fanmix with some obscure artists/songs! Thanks so much for the nice comment! :)

As mizz-destiny said this is a surprisingly fitting mix. This mix really flows well, lyrics-wise and tone-wise, and I love listening to it. Great job!

The classic Dean/Cas quote! I actually loved that you used it - it's something so simple and common that it becomes unnoticed, but you've really shown it off in this mix. Great song choices :)

I've been reflecting a lot on Dean/Cas lately, and wanted to look at the origins of their relationship again for this challenge - I'm so glad I did! This mix was a total blast to make! Thanks for the nice comment! :)

ugh so gritty and dark! I've been meaning to watch SPN for a while now and this is a really interesting take on it. LOOOOVE the pictures interspersed throughout the post; they really add to the feel of the mix :)

I really really really dig the mood you've gone for here (industrial/dark fits!). I've been finally getting around to casually catching up with Supernatural and I've just hit the part this mix starts to base itself on. Excellent excellent interpretation.

Thank you so much! I'm glad that my fanmix coincided with your SPN viewing! Enjoy the rest of the show! :)

The tone is so perfect on this, the anger, confusion. I especially love that you chose to include the lyrics, with the industrial/remixes the lyrics tend to get lost and you focus on the music but these song choices work for setting the tone both musically and lyrically. I'm not even sure if that makes sense outside of my head but the gist of that is: well done, WELL DONE.

What a lovely compliment! Thank you so much!

Woah. You weren't kidding when you said it was dark. I'm really impressed with this.

Yeah, I really enjoy industrial but sometimes the lyrics and imagery can be very dark, and I wanted to overwarn rather than underwarn.

I'm so glad that you liked it! :) thanks for the lovely compliment!
