>ohh ok, like thrash metal and stuff. gotcha.
I like the darker or more aggressive speed metal or thrash stuff (I don't like a lot of the more vanilla stuff other than Metallica these days), black metal, and the occasional death metal record. There are even some old grindcore releases I like. I also like the style of a lot of the hair metal bands I've heard, although I've always neglected the genre a bit.
>i never got into those eras, i just listened to like 1999 to 2005 metal and hardcore like countervail and poison the well.
I always stayed away from most metalcore. I genuinely disliked it and the whole subculture around it, but I think I might have also bought into some of that "false metal" stupidity.
Even some of the more traditional extreme metal from that period turns me off because I'm so picky about production and hate the more modern production style. I can think of albums I would like much more if it wasn't for that.
>i do enjoy the occasional classic rock, like electric light orchestra (showdown is my fav)
Some dadrock is definitely good. I need to hear ELO more. I like their style better than a lot of the more typical bands from their era.
>dude, i relate big time. looking back at my singing days just makes me cringe. it was such a waste of time and i should have spent that time pursuing a degree, not chasing hopeless dreams of becoming a rock star. buttfuck it, there were many good times had during those years, so i guess its not a total loss.
Yeah, I was out of my metalhead phase by the time I graduated high school but am still embarrassed by how I acted around that time. I'd intentionally dress like a slob just out of spite for what was hip at the time, for one thing.
I wouldn't say I'd regret it though. It got me into a lot of music I still like, and I see it more as a necessary awkward stage than anything else.
>and i did get laid by some cute ladies that were out of my league.
I always found those girls attractive back in the day, in spite of everything else.
>i admit i often revisit adam and the ants, the misfits (ill always fucking love the misfits, goddamn so good), and if im in the mood for some real punk, ill throw on the germs.
When it comes to punk, the Misfits are one band I always come back to. For the angrier stuff, I like some releases from Discharge, Amebix, Anti-Cimex, and Minor Threat. But I do listen to post-punk a lot more than I do those bands at this point.
>what i really like about electronic music is that it lacks that personal quality to it. its still human, but it feels more like a stream of subconsciousness which lets me feel like i can get to know the artist, without having to get to know the artist if that makes any sense.
In a way, the calmer styles of electronic music (not that there's anything wrong with the other styles) feel more personal to me given how much more control over the end product a musician has. Some of the more digital-sounding stuff feels really emotive to me, even if it's in a more contemplative kind of way. But that might just be me.
Some of it almost feels like it popped into existence spontaneously, and the artists themselves often feel more de-emphasized and anonymous in a way that feels natural.
