By no means am I a metal purist, so I'm just going to lump all my favorite Metal Bands here, even though some of them are other metal sub genres.

  • Black Sabbath
  • Tool
  • Metallica
  • Megadeth
  • Rage Against the Machine
  • Mastodon
  • Avenged Sevenfold
  • Pantera
  • Rainbow
  • Ozzy Osbourne

I like most metal that doesn't use guttural 'cookie monster' vocals.

Ted Nugent

Rush

I imagine that is not what you had in mind...

I like all genres of metal if the lyrical work peaks my interest, and it doesn't have to be good "clean" music either, for I tend to think that the worst death metal can be the best death metal. ;)

Black Metal:
Graveland
Helrunar
Cradle of Filth
Burzum
Forefather
Halgadom
Wodensthrone
Wolves in the throne Room
Satyricon

Death Metal:
Amon Amarth
Cannibal Corpse
Gortuary
Nile
Carcass
Diminished
Fleshgod Apocalypse
Zyklon
Rob Zombie
Unleashed
Suffocation
Skinless
Fear Factory
Cattle Decapitation
Behemoth

Hard Rock:
Hammerfall
Motörhead
Metallica
Saxon
Sniper
Celtic Frost

Folk:
Ensiferum
Eluveitie
Korpiklaani
Wardruna

And many more, these just top off my head.

I usually like metal surrounded in mythology and oldern times. Tales, journeys and adventure stories. I like perceptions of mythology and how bands uniquely tweak idea to fit their sound and style or own beliefs.

Music wise I like it rough and raw, lots of blast beats, lots of growling. Aggression etc. I don't really like the high pitch vocals of Judas Priest or Black Sabbath or anything.

Red, white, black are our true colours
For these colours we will fight!
Red, white, black will crush the enemy
And will bring back what is right!

I don't consider myself one but I guess if we would really insist I fit the bill well :( :P

 

Live I can enjoy any good band (except nu metal) but I never put on death metal or grind core etc. myself. 

 

I'm more into other music now but once upon a time I mainly listened to hard rock and metal :D

 

My favourite metal stuff is mostly narrowed down to albums these days. I like me some doom/stoner (like Sleep), some black metal (mostly 90's), a little power metal which I often get in the mood for through listening heavy metal stuff like Saxon, Iron Maiden and (bordering to hard rock of course) Rainbow. I still really love classic heavy metal/hard rock like Black sabbath (with Ozzy), Pentagram, Deep Purple, Rainbow etc. 

Oh yeah, I also dig folk metal (mostly scandinavian with black metal influences :P)!

This we have in common. But it seems we find it in very different bands! For me it can even be power metal with balls grabbing high pitched vocals or a ridicilous italian accent! Even though I like some power metal I am extremely selective in the subgenre. Although I am actually extremely selective in any genre. I am not even a purist on metal subgenres but even on a band's discography :P Maybe this elitist metal taste is a leftover from when I was really into the black metal scene (not as a musician) :D

 

 

I don't really check out new metal anymore. Some of my current and latest favs are Urfaust and Taake but I've already been enjoying them for years now :-D
