I try to be as open minded as possible and got a fairly wide taste and collection of music that doesn't occupy one genre in particular. My Favourite bands are Slayer, Strapping Young Lad (I love all Devin Townsend's work), Norther, Mastodon and Dimmu Borgir, but recently I've just thrown down the barriers and just been fucking going for it and just trying everything I can get my hands on.

I generally like ambient atmosperic stuff that's got lots of cool keyboard work (however Nigthwish can go fuck themselves) and I'll give anything a go and usually like anything across the musical spectrum. Except Doom (barr Grand Magus).

Usually I go for stuff which primarily shows 1) ability & 2) vision. Basically avoid monotony or cliche and I'm interested.

If I start saying someting is 'malcore' or 'gay', like too many people on this website, then euthanasia is authorised. I do not recognise these generalist labels as viable, and in a musical genre which is quite often labelled with equally nonsense terms such as 'mindless' or 'talentless' by (ironically) people whose musical tastes I' d have exactly the same reaction to, I believe we owe it on the grounds of standards to be fair and objective aboot all kinds of metal produced without stooping to the same ignorant levels of prejudice that such people possess.
