For the most part I listen almost exclusively to heavy metal. If
it's progressive, melodic or technical, I'll probably enjoy it. A
lot of my favorite bands hail from regions such as Norway, Finland,
Sweden, & the rest of Europe. I also have a strong appreciation
for classic rock, and to a lesser degree blues, jazz, folk, and
even classical. If it weren't for these pioneering genres then I
couldn't enjoy metal as it exists today.
I generally frown upon "popular" and top 40 music due to my belief
that it's all tripe concocted to sell CD's to a swath of
impressionable suburban youth. However, I'm not perfect. I've
on YouTube more often than I care to admit. I also have a
weakness for catchy Indy songs.
