Considering the country’s Smart Nation holy grail and all, here’s something the powers that be can take note of: Black metal is actually really great in boosting productivity and focus while coding.
A recent blog post by software company Atlassian managed to uncover the benefits of having black and death metal playing in the background while in the midst of programming. A survey conducted by a data scientist found that 3.2 percent of software developers — out of an estimated 26 million worldwide — listed that their go-to tunes are on the heavy side; from folk metal to symphonic metal.
Take it from an actual metalhead: Those genres do exist, and are as awesome as what you’d assume they sound like. Shoutout to Heilung.
