Not really much of a metal fan these days. I used to worship bands like Slayer and Anthrax and go to a lot of metal shows when I was younger. Faith No More, Tomahawk, Melvins and Big Business are as close as I get to metal anymore.

Not much of a metal fan, but I do love some Symphonic Power Metal on occasion.

Thrash.

#21 Edited by GeekBait (785 posts) - - Show Bio

Hardcore-influenced death metal like Suicide Silence, old BMTH, Emmure, Attila, etc.

Thrash Metal. Nothing beats James' growls during Harvester of Sorrow or Dave's destructive riffs during Holy Wars.

I feel a bit alone as I was apparently the only one that voted for it, but I do love Gothic Metal.

Of course, while I do like Iron Maiden and Ozzy/Sabbath, I'm actually a much bigger fan of Gothic Rock then I am of Metal, so that doubtlessly influenced me.
