I've been listening to and playing metal for most of my life. I've got a soft spot for older Thrash and Death Metal or combinations thereof. I like bands with clever and effective riffing and I don't mind when the riffs enter into technically proficient territories. As long as they don't enter into Dream Theater-land; something I find hopelessly boring. Good examples would be Sadus - Echoes of Forever and Atheist - Enthralled In Essence.

However I also tend to listen to an array of other genres: older Black Metal, some older Power Metal/Heavy Metal and a dash of Progressive stuff. I've always found whatever Cynic has been doing rewarding to listen to. Non-metal: ambient, electronic/chip tunes, solo instrument performers and a slew of jazz bands.

Apart from all this I like Free Software/Free Culture.
