Sure. Favorite of all time is a tie between Fear Factory and GodGory and Soilwork (the tour Soilwork did with Fear Factory was pure bliss to me). Others ares Nevermore, Lamb of God, Scar Symmetry, Carcass, Lacrimosa, In Extremo (god I love their mideval stuff), Theatre of Tragedy (old and new stuff, Aegis is my favorite album though), Nothingface, Sins of Thy Beloved, Sirenia, Nightwish, MacBeth, In Flames, Nile, Naplam Death, Aborted, Emporer, Darkseed, Axis of Perdition (I have SneakyPenguin to thank for getting me interested in them, Dark Tranquillity, Crematory, Mnemic, and thats just going thru two folders I have of stuff.
As you can tell, my metal taste, very much like my musical taste run the gamut. As long as its good, I'll listen to it. I mean, its not uncommon for me to go from some old country song to jazz, then to metal to ska, and back again...
Though as of the past year or so, I'll check out the reviews on Blabbermouth and then go see what I can find online and give htem a listen or two. Doesn't matter what either the reviewer or reader rating is...just looking to find new stuff.
Though one thing I hate with a fucking passion is hardcore.
When I was in High School a friend got a 100% on a D.A.R.E. test and they gave him a D.A.R.E. duffel bag. Two years later, a drug dealer that was a friend of ours at the time asked to borrow something to transport 2kg of cocaine in and he handed over his D.A.R.E. bag. He brought it back to him with an oz of weed in it as a thank you.
