Top Ten Questions for MetalheadsLelouchYagami
The Top Ten
I think that it depends on the genre. I would prefer more fury and aggression with a death metal band, but with prog, power, or folk, melodeth, or something in the gothic variety, I would like something more melodic. With black metal, I think that it should be an equal mix of both. I listen to more melodic stuff than brutality, so I guess that all that I can say is that they both matter in different forms. - Caleb9000
Depends really. I love the brutality of death metal, slam, grindcore, etc when I'm in that kind of mood. But other times I love the old school Metal/melodic death metal/power Metal when I'm in the mood for that. It's a tie for me - ryanrimmel
I like both. If I can find both in one band it's great (Obscura). If it's not in one band, no problem again - today I listen to brutal metal bands, tomorrow - to melodic metal bands. - Metal_Treasure
How about both? Melodic Death Metal? - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxXV 5 Comments
Old Metal is what started everything. I'll go with that. Nowadays, it seems like the best new Metal bands are the underground ones - ryanrimmel
The real question is Nu Metal Or Old Metal. Old Metal. - MetalObsessed
As long as its great and enjoyable. - LightningBlade
There is nothing like new metal - Ananya
Again, depends on the mood. If I'm all energetic I wanna listen to extreme Metal. If not, I love the clean bands. It's a tie... Again - ryanrimmel
I enjoy harsh vocals at times, but I would say than clean vocals have more variety. - Caleb9000
When It comes to rock clean but metal screaming. - MetalObsessed
Both. I can't decide - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxXV 1 Comment
It depends. When I'm pissed off and full of hatred, Fast Metal is for me. But when I'm calm, Soft Metal is a good choice. - NikBrusk
Ex. One Or Master of Puppets. Fast because I love all things heavy. - MetalObsessed
Fast easily. There is nothing like putting on a good thrash playlist and headbanging. Kreator, Slayer, Havok, Exodus, Lost Society, etc. Are just some of the craziest bands out there - ryanrimmel
Or rather fast and furious - LightningBladeV 4 Comments
I still like traditional metal but prefer experimental metal - esp. technical versions of extreme metal subgenres (technical death metal, technical thrash).
Also non-extreme bands that experiment, such as Flametal - they combined flamenco and metal in a very progressive sound. Or Blind Guardian - they always experiment and sound different. - Metal_Treasure
I love the traditional Metal, that's my vote. But I commend all the bands that bring new stuff to the plate - ryanrimmel
Technical and progressive metal with jazz influences all the way!
Traditional metal. I seem to love it more than experimental. - LightningBlade
80s - I have to go with this, too (except glam metal, ironically called "80s metal").
90s were kinda dull - grunge almost killed metal, esp. 1990-1998. However, some really good stuff came out during this period - by Megadeth, Pantera, Blind Guardian, Iced Earth, to name a few.
00s - very good but metal sound became somewhat repetitive and "uniformed" (many bands sound the same). - Metal_Treasure
80s. You had ozzy's solo career, dio, the nwobhm, the early bay area thrash scene, the Florida death metal scene, the first wave of black metal, early power Metal, and the early grindcore scenes - ryanrimmel
Long songs. You can build up so much more character in a long song rather than a short one. - ryanrimmel
Short songs with really fast riffs and brutality or long, melodious songs. - LightningBladeV 3 Comments
Definitely underground, even the underground of the underground... Can't stand poser metal bands that play poppy, commercial and generic music. - Metal_Treasure
Underground really. Truthfully, extreme Metal will never achieve mainstream success. - ryanrimmel
Underground of course! The best stuff is barely known in my opinion. - NikBruskV 1 Comment
Evolution. It's better for a band to last long and experiment with new sounds instead of only be good at one thing. - NikBrusk
Evolution is always better than one trick ponies. That's a fact. - LightningBlade
Solos easily. I'd rather listen to Randy Rhoads or Zakk Wylde shred than a metalcore breakdown any day. - ryanrimmel
I like both but I solos more.
Blind Torture Kills solo is actually really awesome.
Both are good but I'm going with clean vocals. Growls that are too deep makes it hard for me to understand the song - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX
Both are valid vocal styles in metal, one should respect. I'm more the Death Metal guy, so growls for me, but if it fits well clean vocals in a melodic death metal song are always welcome.
I really like the power and intensity of growls. - Flav
A combination of the two. Like I said, I love singers that can do both. - NikBruskV 2 Comments
Complexity is the basis of metal so I choose it. - MetalObsessed
Ministry easily, It's hard to listen to Rammstein when they don't speak English - ryanrimmelV 1 Comment
New Wave of British Heavy Metal wins because Iron Maiden was apart of it. - ElectricCorpseSlayer
