Metal is a big part of my life.

I don't listen much to traditional Heavy Metal like Iron Maiden(I do love the Killers album though), but Im an active listener to the more extreme genres like Black, some Doom and Death metal... and I love bands with gothic, folk or symphonic elements.


Black Metal (type: Old Norwegian(beginning in the early 90s, inspired by the old #ers..Celtic Frost, Bathory, Hellhammer, Venom..etc) is probably the one sub genre that speaks to me more than any. I love Black Metal. Bands like Darkthrone, Kvist, Isvind, Immortal(r.i.p), Mayhem, Burzum, Satyricon, Carpathian Forest, Emperor, Taake, Helheim(Viking and folk based), Enslaved(Viking based with a lot of prog elements on their more recent releases)..etc.

I also listen a lot to more doom inspired or depressive Black Metal, like Nortt, Leviathan(#ing great, from San Fransisco of all places) and Abyssic Hate. Also like the more #ed up and strange type of Black Metal Abruptum serves... great.

I wouldn't lable Dimmu Borgir and the New Satyricon, Black Metal... but I do listen to it and I think it's #ing great. Especially the last few albums of Dimmu Borgir is awsome music, no mather what all the true" people in the Black Metal scene might say about them.

Favourite bands outside the Black Metal genre are: My Dying Bride, Opeth, Dream Theater, Haggard(great 16 member symphonic death folk metal band from Germany), Tristania, Storm, Rhapsody(power, steel dragon, might..hehe, but still great), Hollenthon, The Sins Of Thy Beloved, Therion, Limbonic Art, Black Sabbath, Testament, Blind Guardian, Aeternus, Arcturus, Anathema, Arch Enemy, At The Gates, Death, Gates Of Dawn...

I also really love a band called, Summoning. They are from Austria I think and play a form of epic atmospheric black metal, with lyrics strongly influenced by JRR Tolkien's books.

I actually saw Opeth two days ago in Oslo. It was great. They played a very good set with songs from albums like: My Arms Your Hearse, Morningrise, Blackwater Park, Deliverance and Damnation. The Drapery Falls, Advent, Deliverance, Demon Of The Fall, April Ethernal and Bleak where all on the playlist... as well as two songs from the new, very calm Damnation album. My neck still hurts like hell, hehe.

If you guys get a chance... I highly recommend a local metal band out of Atlanta. They are my old buddies, band is called Mastodon. They're on relapse records and completely destroying the metal scene all over the world atm. Chec'em out if you can.


Mastodon are ace.

Strapping Young Lad are AWESOME.
Seen them live, best concert ever!!
They're from Canada.
If you havn't heard of them check out the Album 'City'.
Possibly one of the most powerful/brutal metal albums of all time.
Previous album has a song called 'Happy Camper'. You must listen to it, its BERZEERK!!
Devin Downsend apparently had deep mental disorders when he wrote the first two albums, and it shows through the music.

There's a black metal band called Extol which I like.

I use to listen to a bit of Cannibal Corpse, but then I read their lyrics. 'Necropedophiliac' now come on, thats just WRONG


I'd listen to more black metal, but I have a thing about listening to anything thats overtly satanic. I mean Dimmu Borgir sound cool, but swearing there allegiance to the 'master satan', that is somewhat in conflict with my Christian beliefs

Never heard or heard about Mortician, so I wouldnt know. What type of music do they play?


There's a black metal band called Extol which I like.


I wouldnt label Extol black metal, they are more technical death metal... but yeah, they rock. They played support for Opeth last month, so I saw them live then.... that was #ing great.

One semi-metalhead reporting


My music taste covers almost everything from jazz to metal.

Goddammit I 'm pissed off 'cos I didn't get to see Maiden a couple of days a go. Well, I've seen them live three times, but it would've been nice to see them once more.

Top 3 metalbands:

1. Iron Maiden
2. Strapping Young Lad/Devin Townsend
3. Dream Theater (DT is also very fun to play on bass
)

While I like the majority of choices, I am a little disturbed by the lack of ENTOMBED!

I get the distinct feeling that people have not heard them..............
Right, get some entombed then come back and edit your post to include them - that means all of you! lol
