Top 10 Favorite Genres of Rock, Metal, and Punkchristangrant
The Top Ten
I'm sorry, I don't think thrash metal should be #1. It's not exactly complex, and I think it overstayed its welcome. - SwagFlicks
Metallica, Slayer, Kreator, Overkill, Megadeth, Nuclear Assault, Annihilator, Sodom, Exumer, Sadus, Rigor Mortis, Evile, Havok, Testament, and Death Angel.
I kinda agree with SwagFlicks here. Thrash metal isn't really that much of complex (well, I am not new into thrash metal). If you notice its about how much fast you can play your notes. I mean a song is better with a lot of notes. thrash metal has few notes. playing lots of chords at the same time is harder than playing few chords with so much power. chord progressing is actually harder. - zxm
From this genre I like only Pantera. I also like some Sepultura songs but they aren't groove metal. - Metal_Treasure
I only like Sepultura and Pantera from this genre.
My favorite genre of music - christangrant
Pantera, Exhorder, Damageplan, Sepultura, Machine Head, White and Rob Zombie - christangrant
In my opinion, hard rock should be at number 1. It created heavy power chords, heavy drumming, powerful vocals, complex tapping, fast licks, highly distorted guitar riffs etc - zxm
Nile, Cryptopsy, Obscura, Necrophagist, Gojira, and many more - Metal_Treasure
One of the most complicated metal genres. - zxm
I am more into Obscura version of Prog Death Metal than into Opeth version because Obscura also has a technical vibe. - Metal_Treasure
Dream Theater, Witherscape, Cynic, Tool, Opeth, Meshuggah, Edge of Sanity, and Nevermore.
Pink Floyd, Genesis, Yes, Rush, King Crimson, Jethro Tull, Van Deer Graaf Generator, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Kansas, Eloy, and Soft Machine.
Punk usually means punk rock. But still very good genre. - zxm
Djent is a development of prog metal - Meshuggah, TesseracT, Animals as Leaders. - Metal_Treasure
