I do reviews of the albums I own. I'm a huge fan of Industrial, Sludge, Groove, Oriental, and Fusion genres of Metal to see which combinations work to produce a unique, enjoyable sound, and which should be avoided like a Hippo relieving itself.
This being said, I'm not big on genres with little to no experimentation and variety such as Deathcore, Raw Black Metal, and Brutal Death Metal. Redundancy is a huge musical letdown for me, so if you have an album with a bunch of songs that sound the same, expect me to take issue with that.
-Clutch*, Groundscore*, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster*
-GWAR, Whitechapel, Iron Reagan, A Band of Orcs
-FM99 Lunatic Luau '14: SiNN, Sea of Souls*, Saliva*, Adelita's Way*, Kyng, Trivium, Pop Evil*, Devour the Day*, Volbeat, Killswitch Engage, Five Finger Death Punch*, Avenged Sevenfold*
*not on Encyclopaedia Metallum
(Many of these I like, Some of these I don't, just because I've seen a band live, don't automatically assume I like them, especially regarding larger shows or festivals like the Lunatic Luau)
