Metal newbie 
Full name:
United States 
Favourite metal genre(s):
Brutal/Technical Death Metal 

I'll listen to just about anything metal, though my preferred genre is brutal/technical death metal. I am not a fan of metalcore, or commercialized metal in general, but I'm not so closed minded that I won't give bands a chance, and I actually do find some trendy bands that are listenable from time to time. Most of the time though, I stick to things like Hour of Penance, Psycroptic, Abysmal Torment, Saprogenic, etc.

I thoroughly enjoy reading thrash/heavy metal fans' opinions on mainstream music. Espeically when they talk about 'true' metal and uncommercialized music while listening to stuff signed to major record labels. It's not that there is anything wrong with listening to that style of music, or any style of music for that matter. It's just the hypocrisy of it all. Always makes me laugh. Or when someone writes bad reviews for (admittidly shitty) bands like Cradle of Filth/Lamb of God for being mainstream and then turn around and praise Megadeth or Metallica. :D

I guess we metalheads aren't known for our intelligence...
