This is a very "What it is now" post, because I notice with music I've been willing to shed a lot of prior enjoyed music because it just doesn't quite have the same effect on me anymore. (I mean look at that list, would you think I was once just a power metal guy?) Also with a number of these bands I've not listened to the majority of their material yet because I like to take my time.
