Any heavy metal listeners on this site

24 posts in this topic

If so what are your preferred sub genres?

My personal favorites are death metal, thrash, and metalcore. But I do enjoy a bit of deathcore from time to time as well.

I mostly listen to progressive, neoclassical, and power metal, but also like a fair amount of thrash and death metal bands--Demolition Hammer, Bolt Thrower, Morbid Saint, Suffocation, etc.

Melodic death metal(IE Kalmah, pre-Reroute In Flames, At the Gates, etc.)  has been my favorite for a few years now. Mathcore, progressive metal, and old school thrash/speed metal are up there, too.

Oh yeah, and Baroness has been easing me into sludge metal.

Yas, metal is the best. My all-time favourite is Blind Guardian. I don't know much about labels, but personally I'd call them symphonic metal. They incorporate many classical instruments. Then of course Medieval Metal like In Extremo, Subway to Sally and I love me some Pirate and Viking Metal, like Alestorm and Turisas.

Btw, the new Alestorm CD is out and it's AWESOME. I can't stop listening to it. <3

My favorite is, by far, NWOBHM, which is not a genre per se but includes my favorite acts, though I also like thrash. But I haven't dug deeper into the whole genre, which is something I need to do when I have some time.

I see you are a man of culture as well. 

I used to listen many sub-genres of metal on my early days. But now I just stick to the classics and other types of music like rap and cumbia.  But when I loved to death metal, my favorite ones were Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Slayer, Dimmu Borgir, Messuga, Immortal, and other black and death metal bands. 

Now, I'm just that guy who says, hey, that metal band sounds nice...

I really like power metal.  :wub:  My favourite band is probably Stratovarius right now.  

I enjoy some of the classics too, like Iron Maiden and Judas Priest.

I am a big fan of classic hard rock/heavy metal, probably my favorite kind of music period. I'm a particularly big fan of bands like AC DC, Queen, Lead Zeppelin, KISS, and Metallica to name a few. Also as a side recommendation(and since we're on a video game forum) if you haven't heard the soundtrack of Guilty Gear Xrd you have not lived! I'll add a few links here too it:

Definitely a metalhead. Not super fond of Death/Black Metal or Metalcore/Deathcore, though.

 

Favorite genres are Thrash and New Wave Of British Heavy Metal (it technically counts so hush).

 

Favorite bands are (in no particular order aside from Iron Maiden being #1) Iron Maiden, Slayer, Megadeth, Metallica, Motorhead (RIP Lemmy ;w; ), Testament, and Rob Zombie/White Zombie.

I'll always love Motorhead. 

Lemmy was the first(And practically the only) musician to blend punk rock and metal together in an appealing fashion. Then metalcore came along and pretty much ruined the entire concept. Not that metalcore is all awful, but man. That genre killed metal in the mainstream.

Black Sabbath is the only heavy metal band I can think of off the top of my head that I listen to frequently.  Even then, I haven't listened to any of their post-Ozzy material.  Iron Maiden and Judas Priest are pretty good too.

My tastes really just comprise general 70s-80s era rock 'n' roll.  My favorite overall band (not distinguishing between metal and everything else) is Journey, though I'm more partial to their Rolie-era stuff.

I love old school metalcore like Killswitch Engage, All That Remain (the old stuff, they're new stuff is kinda meh), As I lay Dying, etc.. the subgenre kinda went down when the emo scene started to get mixed in with it.

I used to be down with All That Remains and As I Lay Dying(As well as Unearth and It Dies Today), but aside from Himsa, Every Time I Die and Darkest Hour, my interest in those bands died pretty much as soon as I finished middle school. However, Himsa, Every Time I Die and Darkest Hour had something else going for them that the more... I guess "stereotypical" metalcore bands was that Himsa was heavily influenced by trash, Every Time I Die was a rare metalcore band that leaned much more towards the punk rock side of things, and Darkest Hour was heavily inspired by melodic death metal.

I'm actually kind of interested to see what those older metalcore bands did, because from what I remember, Unearth's more recent stuff was more thrash and melodeath than metalcore. I mean, revisiting As I Lay Dying would be interesting just because of the lead singer's arrest trying to get a hitman to kill his wife.

Lol, yeah, it's ironic considering how 'Christian' the lead singer was. The band unfortunately died with his arrest. The remaining band members instead went on to form the band Wovenwar.

I should probably check them out, since they also seemed to go the more traditional/accepted metal route like Unearth.

But yeah, that was another weird thing about metal/mallcore. It attracted a lot of Christian artists.

You should listen to the Dio era tracks. IMO they're even better than Ozzy's! :D

What can I say? Even though I've already posted on this thread, it's always worth mentioning I like pretty much everything Rob Halford and RJD have ever sung, except for Judas Priest's first album which was horribly derivative, but that wasn't Halford's fault anyway.

On the thrash side, Slayer is my favorite act by far.

not a huge metal fan past the 80s/90s. i'm another one of those classics guys.

sabbath, priest, maiden, rainbow. stuff like that. i also listen to bands that imitate that sound: the sword, freedom hawk, samsara blues experiment, etc.

i like slow, heavy stuff mostly. priest and maiden are exceptions (and a couple other bands from the 70s/80s/90s).

I just like listening to music in general. I mostly listen to stuff from before 2000 though.

I'm into folk metal for the instruments. Otherwise, I like death metal and black metal. (Viking metal is pretty cool.)
