    Re: Best type of Metal Music

    Don't really understand the options...what kind of subgenre exactly is Heavy Metal, and how does it differ from Metal?
    Voted Metal since I supposed that's meant to represent late 70's/early 80's metal and NWOBHM. It's the least heavy music that I'd call metal.
    I'm into prog metal and thrash as well, but strangely enough those weren't options (not that I would've picked them over NWOBHM anyway).

    Progressive is more or less the only metal that keeps me interested these days and even then it has a job!

    Listen to Cybion by Kalisia, it's one huge song that took god knows how long to make.

    Metal sucks!!... in my very humble opinion.
    Been playing in metal bands for 12 years... fun and all but i really don't like the music, with few exceptions.

    How can there be a "best type" of metal?

    I'm 23 but I've found in the past ten years since I started listening to music properly that each person begins to settle down and mature to a certain type.
    A sub genre if you will. When I started to get into metal I was listening to shit, Linkin Park and the like and generally trying to conform to the same standards as my friends.

    I began to find that this wasn't really doing anything for me so I started looking down alternative routes.
    I went through listening from power metal to Grindcore to Doom Metal.
    These days I listen to so very little Metal but when I do its usually to appreciate the music than "fuck yeah! I listen to metal!".
    My own musical tastes went towards electronic music and such the only Metal I listen to these days are these guys:

    Genghis Tron are fucking amazing if you get into them.
    Listen to the song "Arms" if you can.

    The moral of my wall of text is that the best Metal is that which suits you.

    Re: Best type of Metal Music

    Mostly Folk/power/neoclassic(or symphonic whatever)/(melodic) death

    Then more or less progressive, Industrial, Trash...

    Why wouldn't Industrial Metal count?

    You can't really ask what the best kind of metal is, because it's such a huge genre, with many different opinions =/

    Personally, I prefer progressive style metal.

    I don't consider myself a "metalhead" anymore, 2 years ago however... i only listened to metal.
    I don't appreciate it that much anymore, which is why i don't really listen to pure-metal.
    Some of the music i listen to contains metal (to some extent), bands like:
    Porcupine Tree, Opeth, Dredg, Tool, Anathema, Dream Theater and Pain Of Salvation all have the progressiveness, with parts of metal. (progressive metal)
    Apart from that, i really love a band called Agalloch, they mix genres like... black metal, neo-folk, post-rock, ambient/noise etc.

    Can't choose one genre as "the best genre". Many metal genres have great bands, but they also have extremely bad bands. I can pick "the best" bands out of genres, but I can't pick "the best" genre

    I state: IN MY OPINION. thanks

    In my opinion, it's hybrid genre that rolls.

    Folk/power, like Falconer
    Prog/power, like Pyramaze

    And so on.

    If i had to go for one overall: i'd clearly be Power Metal, just because it's so uplifting
    The biggest mistake one can make is not admitting when one is wrong.
