Well I posted it as kind of a joke because of the "true" metal thing. But, as is well documented, I do love me some Nu Metal. Though I only wear Adidas around the house and for sleeping.

i wouldnt say theres only one kind of metal that i like more than other, there are bands from all sub genes (except Nu-Metal and Screamo) that i think are equaly good, and for example i think theres a few, say Folk bands better than some Thash bands and vice versa, so i really wouldnt be able to pick

Im such a metal whore I couldnt tie myself down with one of her mistress's. It depends on my mood which one will satisfy me. But, since we are all picking ones, if I would have to settle down with one......as hard as it is to pick.......i guess thrash?? Everytime I listen to thrash, I just want to whip my guitar out and jam. That would keep me amused the most I guess.

Jan 20, 2010 9:04 PM ET #29 (permalink)

what pulls the old heart strings......

defiantly thrash,speedcore and DM. And how could i forget heavy metal!
I mostly listen too Megadeth,pantera,death and slayer ect.
But hey!,if its heavy and isn't rap there's a 100% chance IL listen too it.

What the fuck is "speedcore" ?

Is it a sub-genre of metal?...

Jan 20, 2010 9:59 PM ET #31 (permalink)

i would say dragonforce but everytime i do mention them i get sick to the stomach cuz they are gay as hell. speedcore could be, now im just spitballin here, but it could be a sped up hardcore....? or a slowed down grindcore? maybe, maybe not...it doesnt sound very appealing whatever it is.

Jan 21, 2010 6:48 PM ET #32 (permalink)

sped up hardcore sounds possible.. slowed down grindcore, well, that could just be death metal, haha! I'd like to hear some classical-core tbh.. wonder what that'd sound like. but anywho theres me getting side-tracked.

My metal fetishes include Thrash (Death Angel, Kreator, Destruction, Sadus, Overkill and Exodus. To name just a few!) I'd say that this is my favourite genre of all time, not that I immediately rule out other genres before giving them a go, I'm just generally a very excitable and energetic person who finds their match in Thrash so I tend to stick to what I know.
I also enjoy some Death metal such as Death (first album I heard was Human, wow, just.. wow), Carcass and Deicide. I also realy love a band called The Chasm, but no-one seems to have heard of them (can't find any album other than the one i have, 'the spell of retribution', if anyone could help there it'd be much apprectiated!)

And the odd bands I find from other genres are always welcome in my cd rack. Can't beat a bit of Blind Guardian while I'm playing lame fantasy rpgs on my PS2 for example. Then theres Dream Evil, Kiss, King Diamond or Manowar for those "dancing round the room like a tard with a hairbrush" moments.

Any thing goes realy aslong as it makes me grin!

I like anything that doesn't have a ___core ending. Black metal, Death metal, Thrash, Symphonic, Folk, a little power metal(it's my least favorite) and any of the sub-sub genres in there

Jan 21, 2010 9:03 PM ET #34 (permalink)

Death, doom, grind, sludge and stoner. those plus the sub genras but everything has a few bands I like but not nearly as much as those five. I would also have to put pornogrind when I dont want to be serious. romperrop ect the vox just make me laugh.

Jan 21, 2010 9:14 PM ET #35 (permalink)

well. lately ive been getting into a bit of drone and doom. i came across this band called "the angelic process" and it took me by suprise. ive never had songs affect me in the way their songs did. hella layers to it, haunting voices, wierd ass sounds mixed in and above all despair...i guess you could say that after i listened to it i felt like shit, in a good way...i know it sounds wierd but it was absolutely awesome!

just puttin the name out there so yall can check em out if youve never heard of them before or comment about them if you have heard them.

Lately I've been obsessed with Old School Death and Brutal Death, along with a lot of foreign Thrash Metal and Black Metal. I also am starting to get into Gothic Metal and I'm really into Folk Metal. My favorite overall combination is probably when you combine Folk or Viking Metal with Black Metal. As for women liking metal, they can like it just as much as guys can of course, but alot of them, I agree try too hard. Such as they try to make it more into an image and doesn't listen to the music. But there are guys who do that too, I'm just saying it's more likely for a girl to do so.

Jan 22, 2010 11:22 PM ET #37 (permalink)

i totally agree with you metalfan. i wish some chicks could just stop going over the top. like, for example, i saw this chick that was obviously into some sort of metal at a concert. i ended up talking to her after buying her a beer and she was totally fuckin cool but she had on some sort of face, er, corpe paint on and uber leather and stockings and such but she didnt act like what she looked like (if that makes sense...?) i told her that if she took off all of the crap and wore a tight band shirt and a pair of jeans and some make up then she would be super hot. she said that the only way she thought she would get noticed is to wear all of the crap. i dont know but i think a chick in a band shirt (not metallicas saint anger shirt either) is super hot.

I love all metal in general,but I'd have to say nothing does it like black metal. Just gives me that strangely ominous, yet euphoric feeling. Then death metal, of course, just makes me want to headbang through a brick wall. And yeah, chicks n' metal- hard to come by. Got my girlfriend into it tho, she f*cking loves it.

Jan 23, 2010 11:39 AM ET #39 (permalink)

good job you can easily tell the fake girls from the decent ones then haha. I wouldnt say its more likely for a girl to make it into an image though, I personaly hear alot more guys spout a load of rubbish about bands they hardly know but then maybe you just get this "scene kid"/metalcore thing over in england. The girls in that sort of scene though are generally oblivious to the music (probably a good thing!) so i wouldnt count them as 'being into metal' in the first place, hah.

Jan 28, 2010 2:35 PM ET #40 (permalink)

I like whatever tickles my fancy. I mean, I'm listening to Depeche Mode right now.

Jan 28, 2010 3:14 PM ET #41 (permalink)

as far as chicks liking metal my wife loves metal, but thats because she's aquired a taste for it. when i first met her she hated any music with "screaming" and hated beer, but now, years later, we're in a death metal band together and she drinks Real beer everyday (not that pussy corperate piss yellow "lite" shit) and she doesn't have any sort of "image" she dresses like a regular human.

its so hard to pick a favorite genre of metal because there are so many bands out there i can easily hate and love any type of metal out there at the same time. There are black metal bands i cant get enough of and some that i hate and same with death metal and everything else. i tend to lean to the more progressive side of music, im a mellow dude so anything that bases its appeal on "angst" usually turns me off but like i said before this there are some "angsty" bands that make me want to get up and run in circles and punch shit and some that make me want to force feed them xanax or blow smoke in there face or something. i think every music genre has its positives and negatives like all things.

I had to join in, seeing that you guys are talking about females and Metal.
I'm a female, and I love Metal Music; it's very important to me. I personally enjoy other styles of Music
outside of Metal, but...well...have any of you seen a brain storm web, where there is a center bubble and then the lines that come out of it are ideas? Well for me, it's similar to that; Metal is my center, and all the other stuff I listen to are branches that go away from it. Honestly, when I listen to another genres, I feel like I'm on some random vacation; even if it's for a while. But once I go all out on my Metal again, it's like, "I'm home."

Ever since I go into Metal, I always pictured/felt this burning sensation in my chest when I hear something I love; like a flame that just wants to burst out. I'm not one to look into lyrics as much as others might, but the sound and the feeling a song gives me has always been very important. Lyrics are important to me sometimes. I love looking for bands.

Even as a female, I must admit that I have a hard time recognizing other female Metalheads but I bet they're out there, just like me. I'm just the kind who loves to keep rambling about how awesome Metal is...haha.

TO ANSWER THE QUESTION: This is somewhat difficult for a person like me; I have a hard time choosing just a few things. It all depends what sort of mood is inside of me for Music to pull at. The genres that get me my fix when I'm happy are different than those that squeeze my heart when I'm sad. Sorry, I cannot choose one, let alone a few genres, otherwise I might as well list almost everything I listen to.

On topic:

Doom Metal and Folk Metal resonate the most strongly, but they aren't the only things that resonate. I love the variety in the Metal world these days, and listen to lots of different things, old and new-- so I'm all over the place. But the music is definitely part of who I am, and I can't confine that to one or two genres.

On the female-metalheads tangent:

It's harder to "look" metal when you're female. When I have long hair, bluejeans, and a concert T-shirt, it just looks like jeans-and-a-t-shirt. Dressed in work-appropriate clothing, there's nothing left to give any sort of signal, since again, the long hair, etc, convey nothing. Thus, I don't bother, and so unless I'm on my way to a concert (black jeans, concert t-shirt, bracers), you would probably never peg me for a metalhead.

(well, it would seem I do give myself away when I walk down the street with my headphones on. I sometimes get into the music and start lip-synching along-- and once when I was doing this an older guy looked at me kind of oddly like he was trying to make up his mind, then grinned and threw me the horns =^D. I had always wondered how obvious it was what I was listening to when I started to get into it, but I suppose that answered my question.)

Hilariously, my boyfriend listens primarily to chamber music, and I couldn't drag him to a Metal concert to save his life X^D. But I've been surrounded by people with very different taste than my own all my life, so I lost any qualms about going on my own to things that no one else is interested in decades ago. Still the same music, whether other people are there with me or not. \mXm/.

@Lijemo: Although I'm not a girl, in some way I can empathize with you. I barely look metal at all - I;ve got short hair, I wear average joe tee's, jeans, and occasionally shorts topped with bright green converse. But when I pump my tunes loud people give me stares :P

On Topic:
Death, Grind, Sludge, Thrash, Prog, and everything in between.

Sep 16, 2010 5:05 AM ET #47 (permalink)

Doom metal for sure
I can understand doom well.more than any other genre
Bands like Draconian,Anathema,katatonia,My dying bride,...
Gothic Metal is another.Theeatre of tragedy,the vision bleak,...
The only black metal band i listen to is Immortal
Immortal is unique for me
immortal is my all time favorite metal band
I love the band more than any other bands

@grim_frost: Hmm, that's quite interesting, how the only BM band you like is immortal. I've noticed that black metal is not just one generic pigdeonhole that nails a band to a specific sound... there are a lot of bands that play black metal but sound worlds different. Carpathian Forest and Diabolical Masquerade will never sound the same, just like how Bal-Sagoth and In the Woods... won't either.

But just recently I've found I've been obsessed with the genre. It's so.... "peaceful" in it's own way. I listen to it whenever I'm with nature, it really fits the mood. Of course that fits the stereotype of every black metal lyrical theme besides Satanism, Anti-Christianity, and winter, but i find it really true. The shit from Amesoeurs is really amazing...

I thought heavy metal was just another name for metal as a whole. I didn't think it was one metal's subgenres.

Sep 18, 2010 7:41 PM ET #50 (permalink)

A lot of people use "heavy metal" to mean something akin to classic metal (Maiden, Priest, etc), while others consider it to be the overarching genre description from which all others are sub-genres (black, death, thrash, etc). The former often differentiates "heavy metal" from "metal" too, with the latter being the overarching genre description. I consider both "heavy metal" and "metal" the overarching/parent genre personally.

On the topic, I especially enjoy thrash and death/thrash, but enjoy some bands from every sub genre, and have been enjoying quite a bit of stoner and doom metal lately.
