The Metal / Rock Music Fans

It's nice not being the resident metalhead here. Heavy metal has been a big part of my life since I was in middle school, and after 13 years of worship I doubt I'll lost interest in the genre. The favorites that immediately come to mind include:

(Traditional)
Black Sabbath, Angel Witch, Judas Priest, Motorhead

(Thrash metal)
Rigor Mortis, Exodus, Overkill, Slayer

(Black metal)
Venom, Bathory, Celtic Frost, Darkthrone, Revenge

(Death metal)
Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation, Dying Fetus, Autopsy, Obituary

(Grindcore)
Napalm Death, Carcass, Impetigo, Haemorrhage, Agoraphobic Nosebleed

(Experimental and Avant Garde)
Mr. Bungle, Gnaw Their Tongues, Sunn 0)))

I haven't heard it, but I'm sure it's awesome, I mean the boardroom execs at the record label wouldn't settle for less.

Is this trolling, or are you actually under the impression that Linkin Park's music qualifies as metal? Distorted guitars with lower-than-standard tuning and shouted vocals does not a metal make.

I was board so I created a list of legally free album I've found.

Nice. I may have to scour through that list, I've been depressed ever since Freemetalalbums died. I found so much good music (though a lot of shit too) on that blog. :(

I'm awful at putting metal groups into sub-genres, so here's a list of everyone I usually listen to:

Dark Tranquility
Scar Symmetry
Sybreed
Meshuggah
Lamb of God
In Flames
Nightwish
Soilwork
Judas Priest
Megadeath
Five Finger Death Punch
Dragonforce
Scars on Broadway

Ironically my favorite musician/artist (Serj Tankian) doesn't do metal even though it's my favorite genre.

Baroness's new double album is really, really disappointing.


Good, maybe everyone can shut-up about them now.

Uh, unless that album is freely distributed it's not a good idea to link to a torrent here.

Been into metal since the kindergarden, so late 80s to present...

Started out by listening to my dads Dio, Judas Priest, Deep Purple, etc vinyls, then I eventually got into heavier stuff like Sepultura, Death etc.

I`m still very into it, but I`m extremely picky. I absolutely dread modern and "good" production in metal.

My fav genres would be: old school death metal, old school black metal, old school heavy and epic metal. Old school all the way.

And no I dont want to try to explain "what do you mean old school?".

A FEW favs:

Repugnant
Autopsy
Obituary (Slowly We Rot)
Death (Scream Bloody Gore)
Darkthrone
Brocas Helm
Judas Priest
Dio
Bathory
Dissection

Possibly a trick question designed to make us look stupid, but I'd say the drummer. Everyone else can jam together but you can't really have a band without a drummer.

The drummer: he tries not to disappear in a cloudy green booom.
