I listen to most anything, and in sharp contrast at that. Metal to Punk to New Age and Electronic. Korn to Enya.
Bat Country to Helena. Country is probably my very least favorite, though I can go for some Blue Grass here and there.

I prefer my music mostly upbeat and mostly decipherable, so I normally dont do death/heavy metal, (though "Her Portrait in Black" from Atreyu isnt bad ).

Yeah, and I know you read everything in my post past that. Kidding. You're right there anyway... you clearly know more about metal than me.

Can someone tell me about the musicality of these bands. A lot of these bands I've heard of, but never actually heard. Can someone describe it? Is it kind of fast drum based primal with the jugajugjugajug type guitars and bass with hoarse roring vocals raw emotive... you know.
I love a heavy sound, but I must have musicality, or at bare minimum clever lyrics. That means I've never been a huge fan of things like Deathmetal, and consider myself more of a "Hard-Rocker." Something you can play along to until your pick wears out and your fingers bleed, but not meaningless low minor rythmic noise.

Just wondering. I havn't heard the bands you guys have listed. try making a sig like mine, which plays the demo of a song when you click on it. We can spread the music.

Shihad fucken rules forever anyway. Just thought I'd say that... again.
Sorry about that, I sometimes read something I'd like to comment on, skim the rest of that post and then post in reply to it.
I don't know if I know more about metal than you, but I do know the stuff I listen to, and the stuff that I would prefer not to listen to based on my experience. And also I'm friends with a guy that knows like EVERYTHING about metal and all the other generes, and I've just picked up a kind of know-it-all attitude from him.

All I gotta say is... go listen to something like As I Lay Dying(Metalcore): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8XOoNzv … ay%20Dying
and then listen to Children of Bodom(Death Metal) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tjtc_mdD … of%20Bodom

If you've heard As I Lay Dying, you've heard a LOT of the metalcore that is out there... I'm serious, it all sounds the same. Chugga chugga.

They aren't really hard, but Their lyrics and their music is just the top of the line in my honest opinion.

Anything, I dj in drum and bass and hip hop. Not great but check out my mixes (+ a couple of my mates). www.bashistbeats.com (i'm sharx). There seems to be a trend of metal heads liking Bf2. Perhaps someone should do a psychology dissertation on this?

Trough Struggle is one of my favourite tunes to play on guitar, metalcore ones anyway. I agree, a lot of it sounds the same, but I either love it or hate it, some can sound really awful where as some is really good.

Yeah, there's always the good and the bad of every genre. Metalcore has more bad than good though

Mmh, all this fuss about metal-this, techno-that and pop-blabla-and-so-on..
I mostly categorize music into four groups;
Music I like, music I like after listening for a while, music I appreciate just because of the effort the musicians made and music I still don't like after listening .
But just to answer the question; I like Purple, Rainbow, Jimmy Smith (I play the Hammond, thats why), ELP, Uriah Heep, Tony Joe White (yes!!) and lots of other (a little less older) bands/musicians.

In the car disc changer today

King Diamond - Them
Type O Negative - Bloody Kisses
Metallica - Ride the Lightening
Ugly Kid Joe - America's Least Wanted
Anthrax - Music of Mass Destruction - Live in Chicago
Saturday Morning Cartoons' Greatest Hits


Discs recently rotated out

Iron Maiden - Rock in Rio
House of 1000 Corpses Soundtrack
Godsmack - Godsmack
Helloween - Keeper of the 7 Keys, Pt 1
Metallica - Master of Puppets
New Wave Halloween Compilation

Honorable mention in no particular order (and by no means a complete list)
(these made it to my cd shelf)

Pantera, Slayer, Apocalyptica, Black Sabbath, Ozzy, White Zombie, Rob Zombie, Korn, Danzig, Faith No More, Sepultura, Fear Factory, Primus, Suicidal Tendencies, Disturbed, Manowar


I grew up on piles of 70's rock my dad would crank... Led Zeppelin, Who, Rolling Stones, and the list goes on... as you can see I've moved on from there

Give me some hard driving metal any day!  It helps me to wake up in the morning and wind down for the ride home.  I could care less how you categorize it, great metal rules and shitty metal sucks big fat hairy ass moose cock!

Lately, shred, power metal, prog metal, and a bit of thrash. Occasionally I'll listen to some classical music, which comes out in some other ways with the symphonic aspects of power metal and in some black metal I listen to.

Neo-classical shred has been a large part of what I listen to lately. Like Jason Becker and Joe Stump. Steve Vai's Fire Garden has been in my playlist alot lately, as has Dragonforce's Sonic Firestorm. Dream Theater is great stuff and so is Symphony X.

Some Behemoth here and there, some COB. But no, I don't like sellout metal like Trivium, God Forbid, Lamb of God, Bury Your Dead, and all those other gay bands with die, dead, or death in their name like Before I Die, As I Lay Dying, and Between The Buried and Me. They are pussy music.

And of course, classic metal like Maiden and Priest and Metallica.
