    This isn't a thread to knock any type of music, just for those of us who are Metalheads to talk about our bands. My all time favorite band is slayer, then maiden, and several others. Digging newer bands like suicide silence too. What are you into?

    In my youth? Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Scorpions, etc. Now a days about as heavy as I get is Butthole Surfers.

    Mos Def, I'm Old School :D

    Purple, Sabbath, Rush (which is somewhat lighter metal, call it "titanium";))
    I used to dig me some Quiet Riot back in the day, Poison, and we stopped playing about the peak of the hair band days...

    Never like Metallica too much, mostly because my total musical background was very technical, you know, "classically trained" like the Van Halen boys :D
    They really rocked it too. Sound Garden, but just the "pop" stuff, never got into too much newer music cuz I was too busy with life.

    Kid (20 y.o.) I was trading rides with had some good stuff, and even the outlaw country he liked had some hard rock influences. Lots of Rap influence too :rolleyes: These newer kids in country can't make up their minds!

    Judas Priest, Motorhead, ACDC and some smaller ones I can't remember in my late teens.

    I still listen to 'older' ACDC and Rammstein...once in while Black Sabbath.
    Not really into any of the 'new' stuff. generally don't bother to remember a name even when I like a song.

    One of the songs of the century, the last one that is.....:D

    And when I'm talking ACDC I'm liking the older stuff more...

    We played that, SwagZ!
    More of an OZZY/Randy Rhodes version.
    Me and the crazy red-headed lead guitar player killed a bottle of Jack together after Randy died. That is a lot for 2 lightweight teens ;)

    I'm pretty much into any of the older established metal head bands.... Newer stuff not as much, but occasionally..... For instance, couldn't stand five finger death punch, till I heard the wrong side of heaven. Line that song a lot..... But yeah, almost any pre black album Metallica, stuff line that.

    I was into the earlier rock, like Journey, Styx, Scorpions, Van Halen, and Rush. Y&T, Winger, and Triumph were great. I liked Ozzy, didn't like Iron Maiden. Many of the hair bands were decent, I prefer good vocals, so some of the heavier metal wasn't that attractive to me. As it got faster and darker, I really didn't like it.

    Almost forgot Queensryche.

    In the newer stuff I like Cavo, 12 Stone, and Aranda. They still aren't "metal", but they do rock.

  17. Some of my favorites are Metallica, Megadeath, ACDC, and Black Sabbath.


    I really enjoy when my 13 year son comes to me as ask "Dad have you heard this son?" and he plays one of the Metallica songs from the early 80s. Now I'm getting him to teach me hot to play the guitar so we can play the old stuff together.

    Rammstein. The only group that makes you want to conquer a small third world nation.

    I like Grunge (Love AIC), and Gothic. Especially older bands like Theatre Of Tragedy (before Liv left the band), Nightwish (before Tarja left), Tristania, Dead Can Dance, Diary Of Dreams, etc. I've got a pretty sizable library on my pc hard drive.

    I enjoy most genre (including ambient artists like Kitaro, Andreas Vollenweider, Yanni, Enya, etc), but I loathe thrash or angst metal. I love Blues and 'guitar oriented' music. Grooveyard Records has some awesome material!!!!

    I recently discovered Hibernal, a type of 'Spoken Word' mixed with Progressive Rock Instrumental from a guy in Australia.

    During the day when I'm at home (while unemployed) I keep our TV/DISH tuned to the XM Spa channel..... :cool:

    I Love ACDC but can't go listen to Metallic, Pantera, etc because it makes me sleepy. I like In this moment (especially blood). [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZF5m-vmDzM[/ame]

    I like the black crows (not sure they count as Metal) - especially their song Hard to handle.
