LONG version: I basically listen to a lot of metal, some rock, and
lesser bits of other random things. I have a lust for 90s music
(Toad the Wet Sprocket, Sister Hazel, Gin Blossoms, etc.). Metal is
my big thing, though. I'm mostly into prog, power, and death, but I
like at least some of all of it (folk, black, doom, even
metalcore). A long list of metal bands that I approve of: Serenity,
Theocracy, Psychostick, Nevermore, Black Label Society, Angra,
Queensryche, Rhapsody (of Fire), Metallica (pre-black album),
Megadeth, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Testament, Sonata Arctica,
Opeth, Racer X, Iced Earth (some of their stuff), Gamma Ray,
Necrophagist, Stratovarius, Pain of Salvation, Heathen, Gorod,
Elvenking, Amon Amarth, Wintersun, The Faceless, Agalloch, 1349,
Emperor, Mayhem, Into Eternity, Kamelot, Kronos, Lost Horizon (they
have the best vocalist ever), Mastodon, Strapping Young Lad,
Summoning, Ensiferum, Pyramaze, Carcass, Cattle Decapitation, The
Black Mages. Other bands that I like include: Joe Satriani, Steve
Vai, Rush, King's X, Alice in Chains, Smashing Pumpkins, Clutch,
Collective Soul, Van Halen, Live, Led Zeppelin, Boston, Weird Al,
Extreme, ZZ Top, Sevendust, The Police, Guthrie Govan, Greg Howe,
Gnarls Barkley, Earth, Wind & Fire, Cosmo Squad. I also have an
inexplicable obsession with the bands City Sleeps and Paramore. And
Savage Garden's self-titled is a guilty pleasure. Go figure.
I like a ton of video games too. I mostly just play older stuff
(NES, SNES, GB/GBC, GBA) these days. Pokemon will always have a
place in my heart and I LOVE classic Mega Man. I was way into TF2
for a while on PC. We're talking hundreds of hours.
