Comments:
 

I've been listening to (and I've played) metal for most of my life. I've got a soft spot for Thrash and Death Metal or combinations thereof. Preferably with an old school bent.

However I also tend to listen to an array of other genres: older Black Metal, some older Power Metal/Heavy Metal, lately a lot of funeral doom, brutal death metal, technical metal (not 'Dream Theater'-type of bands though). Production-wise: rather organic/raw instead of plastic/modern. Non-metal: ambient, electronic/chip tunes, video game soundtrack, solo instrument performers and a slew of jazz bands.

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

I try to review stuff that's not on my favorites list, classics or albums that aren't considered to be the apex of a bands catalogue. Mostly to keep things interesting and have an excuse to examine such albums. A rule that is not carved in stone though.
