Obviously, first things first, any creative decision you make when writing/recording songs should be driven by what you like, since presumably you're making music the way you'd like it to be. "If it sounds good, it is good."

But beyond that, what kinds of unorthodox things do you do in your music? Have you broken genre in any cool ways? Have you found a unique way to deliver vocals or dial in a guitar tone? If I were to listen to 100 random metal songs and yours was only one of them, what would stand out about your song?

I always thought Rob Halford put a lot of disco into his vocals

I like to do gothy/melodic lead guitar stuff with most metal styles. just add some chorus and switch to your neck pick-up. shredding solos are cool, but sometimes you just need something moody and melodic.

Well, I'm working on this drone project that also has dark jazz components. Doomjazzy Twin Peaksness.

Adding or imply 12-bar blues chord changes in a metal riff is always awesome.

Reaaaaally depends what genre. I can't stand it in black metal. But in stoner/doom metal, I love it.

I make a pretty strong effort to listen to my influences' influences so I've been channeling a lot of British folk rock revival (and other straight traditional folk), golden-age of jazz fusion and prog rock stuff of late.
