I love to sing!! I play the flute also from time to time. My favorite metal bands are usually of the doom or folk or doomy folky variety. I also really enjoy technical death metal and progressive bands. I love orchestration and over the top cheesiness. I have never really liked much thrash metal (some people disagree) My tastes somehow run the gamut while being rather predictable. Ho hum.
In my collection most recordings are the first issue. It goes without saying that my wanted list is the same. I haven't really been obsessing over music since 2003 or 2004 and it really shows - I feel like a time capsule. To me the best year in metal was 1998. If all music stopped in 1998 that would have been ok with me.
As usual in no particular order..
