Stroggos said: I used to be really heavily into thrash and heavy metal. Iron Maiden and Metallica's Ride the Lightning were definitely my favourite, as a bass player. But more recently I've been finding solace in stoner rock/metal. Things like Kyuss, Electric Wizard, Sleep and Red Fang. Black Sabbath and a lot of the heavier rock from the 70's is pretty stand-out as well. Led Zeppelin are probably the best band to have ever graced this earth. Some say the Beatles, The Stones or even The Who, for me it will always be Zeppelin in terms of musicianship they are unmatched.
When the levee breaks. <3
Been jamming to Iron Maiden's Somewhere in Time recently.
Had a 1980s night with a buddy last night. Yes that's vinyl. :D

But then that's just me.
It was a pretty great night.
RUSH said: Vinyl is the BEST! Over half my metal collection is on vinyl and the sound of digital just can't compare. Not to mention how much nicer the artwork looks when it's 10x larger.
Good condition Vinyl sure does sound really good. I don't know if I believe that it sounds better than digital but put the two side by side and I couldn't guess which is which.
To me it's just a really fun way to listen to music. I would like to get some more metal albums on vinyl. And yeah, artwork is awesome, especially when it is as detailed and crazy as Somewhere In Time's.
Some of the bands I listen to that fall into the metal genre:
Soilwork, Sevendust, Celldweller (hybrid of metal and electronic, which would make it "industrial metal" but whatever), Blue Stahli (same deal as Celldweller, they work together too haha), Blood Stained Child.
Here's a song from Soilwork that I'm addicted to currently:
Buckethead Soothsayer...I totally agree.
Thank you, that WAS really good stuff!
Much appreciated, black metal kinda creep me out.
