Bands, genres. Name it all!

There are few metalgenres I don't enjoy that much, metalcore and pure doom would be two of those. I have outgrown most power metal and all its siblings as well as heavy metal and thrash, and goth never did that much to me.

Everything else though, I swallow whole.

My favorite bands would be Insomnium and Kamelot. For more information, check ;)

I like TotalSelfHatred (Finland) and Thy Light (Brazil.) Below is a fan vid of the song "Total Self Hatred" by TotalSelfHatred.

I was an old school metalhead from the 80's...
Slayer, Megadeth, Metallica, Death Angel, etc.....
Still love slayer, and withthe new metallica album Death Magnetic, I like my first metallica albuim since 1986! Was not a fan during the Newsted years. And one of my favorite songs by Slayer is READ BETWEEN THE LIES from the album South of Heaven. Love it.
I'm always on the lookout for some good music, although I mostly listen to Punk now.

Back in the day I listened to Metallica, Megadeth, DRI, Pantera, and a lot of lesser known bands that I would get demo tapes of at the local indy music store.
Honestly, the whole subgenera categorization game among the metal community is one of my biggest pet peeves. I've listened to, and participated in, so damn many debates about whether (insert band name) is metalcore or post-hardcore or anti-post-prenatal chicken sodomy that I was almost denied medical insurance for a preexisting brain tumor (here i take a brief comedic pause to adjust my necktie and suggest that I receive inadequate respect). So I've widdled my classifications down to a frankensteinian system of: This Good! or This Bad!

That being said, I present to you a sampling of This Good!:

Acid Bath
Bleed the Sky
In Flames
The Absence
Arch Enemy
Lamb of God (pre Sacrament days)
Cradle of Filth
Merciful Fate/King Diamond
Dog Fashion Disco
Polkadot Cadaver
God Dethroned
Lizzy Borden
Ozzy/Black Sabbath
Threat Signal
Type O Negative

. . . Just off the top of the ol' noodle.
Well including all genres I listen to:
Pink Floyd (best band ever)
U2 (still love them but their stuff such as Joshua Tree, Unforgettable Fire and Achtung Baby is much better than their more recent stuff)
Sigur Ros
Nine Inch Nails
Dream Theater
King Crimson
Emerson lake and Palmer
Porcupine Tree
Joy Division
Velvet Underground
The Who
Iron Maiden (early)
Genesis (early)
Brian Eno
The Beatles
Dillinger Escape Plan
Between the Buried and Me
Ambient music (especially Steve Roach, Steve Reich, Robert Rich etc.)
Tangerine Dream
John Cale
The Doors
Classical music (like Beethoven, Stravinsky, Chopin)
That's all I can think of at the moment!
judas priest,death,slayer,belphegor,dark funeral,ozzy osbourne,megadeth,80' metallica, anorexia nervosa, at the gates,autopsy,behexen,dark tranquility,pantera,pestilence,sepultura,solitude aeturnus, candlemass....well thats off the top of my head but i like it all thrash,black,death,doom,power.
my taste is many and varying! depending on my mood it will change but lamb of god, machinehead, metallica, slayer, megadeth, slipknot, killswitch engage, soulfly and gallows feature very prominently on my commute to work! but i still love soundgarden, alice in chains, kyuss (which I know arent metal)!!!

oh and the melvins kick ass!
My top 3 genres of Metal in no order: Power Metal, Melodic-Death Metal and Thrash Metal.
My top 3 all-time favorite bands in no order: Rush, Megadeth and Sonata Arctica. I could listen to any song by those 3 and be content anytime of anyday, thats why I say "top 3 of all-time"

Right now I'm getting into a lot of Black Metal. My romanian friend let me listen to Dimmu Borgir's album "For All Tid" and once I found some songs off of "Enthrone Darkness Triumphant" I was hooked. I'm getting into Emperor, Månegarm and Immortal. I'm also starting to really dig King Diamond too, I like the higher pitch and lower tone voices all the same. Folk Metal is big with me at the moment as well, so far my top 3 would be Korpikaani, Heidevolk and Týr. I'm still looking into it though, if anyone has suggestions then feel free to PM me or something. Some people will surely dislike me for this but, I think Skid Row and Twisted Sister are good bands. Music to me is Art in the form of audio so I listen to what is pleasing to my ears. Antestor and Skillet are obviously Christian outfits but I won't deny they are good bands just because of that.

DISLIKES: Groove Metal *except for Pantera*, Screamo, Mathcore *look it up if you want a headache or torture music*
I also like: Classic Metal *Judas Priest, Raven, Accept, ect*, all forms of Rock *especially Classic Rock and Punk* and some Alternative bands *Disturbed, SR-71, Red Hot Chilli Peppers*
