To get it rolling, I finally picked up Somewhere Far Beyond by Bling Guardian. Good to listen to while driving. I still haven't got the new CoB, maybe this weekend.

EDIT: And by Bling Guardian, I mean the rap group....apparently.

I think I'll make something of this thread by listing my favorite bands, so as to let everyone in what genres I prefer.

Black Sabbath

Motorhead

Iron Maiden

Judas Priest

Blind Guardian

Ulver

Green Carnation

SIG:AR:TYR

Iced Earth (Barlowe and before)

November's Doom

Nightwish

Windir

Peccatum

Vintersorg

Looks like a combo of Classic, epic, and folk metal with various other bands factored in.

The 1 kind of metal that I don't like ... is Classic Metal (ex. Black Sabbath, Motorhead, Judas Priest) The stuff that any metal fan SHOULD enjoy... for it's importance if anything .... I just never got into it

I guess I like the raw "We're just out to rock n' roll" sound.

I'm not a fan of death metal at all really, though I am a fan of black metal but mostly if I just want to jam my satanic head off.

Been enjoying my Nightwish recently. Kinda preparing for an album that's sans Tarja. It's gonna feel weird.

Any trained opera vocalist will sound exactly the same.

So if they find one, the change will be minimal.

I've downloaded a lot off of Kerrazy Torrents lately. Edguy, Opeth, Dio, Evergrey, Pain of Salvation, Angra, Dragonforce, Into Eternity, Norther, Wintersun, and various others. Beefed up my library quite a bit.

I just listened through the new In Flames release (Come Clarity) and ... while I must say it is an improvement over Soundtrack, it is still very nu-metal souding and all together disappointing.

If this were just "some band" then this would be a solid release in my opinion, but I know In Flames and I know what they are capable of. This is unacceptable.

Yes, change is indeed good, but only when it's for the better, this... is not one of those cases. Sorry In Flames, I've lost all hope

Rammstein is taking the exact same route In Flames took. Rammstein have not made a lousy ablum, but have made 2, back to back. (Reroute to Remain and Soudtrack to Your Escape anyone?) Taking the IF formula, the next Rammstein album is going to suck as well.

Well the new album is great SO FAR from what I've heard of it. "Take This Life" is super good. I think for once, Anders wasn't talking out of his ass. First pinch harmonic I've heard in an In Flames song in years. Hahaha

Melodeath-whore strikes again!

There are DEFINETALLY a few keepers from this album. 'Take This Life' being one of them. But there are a few ... (cough cough SCREAM cough cough) that aren't the best hehe
