My name is Matt. I am 20 years old, and have been listening to metal for about 7 years now. The bands that introduced me to the genre were Metallica, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Megadeth, In Flames, Trivium, and, being an angry teenager, Slipknot and Korn, among a few other mainstream metal bands. Throughout the last 7 years, my taste in the genre has very greatly expanded, leading into the murkier corners of the extreme metal underground. I still listen to a few bands that got me into the genre, however. My favorite sub-genres is black metal, especially the depressive suicidal black metal (DSBM) subgenre. However I also have very much love for thrash metal, death metal, folk metal, Viking metal, power metal, and most of the other subgenres. The only few I am very picky about are glam, which I don't listen to hardly any of, and the metalcore and deathcore genres, of which I enjoy a few of the bands. I am fairly open minded, but black metal will always remain my dish of choice.
