There's really not that much to say, but sure, I'll give it a shot.
I am a rather geeky fellow, at least when it concerns all things regarding either music or gaming. When I'm not occupied by such things as these, I tend to get a little deep, and think too much about things that really aren't all that important.

So there's a lot of metal I like... aaaaand then there's even more metal I don't like. But I'll get back to that. I enjoy a lot of prog and power metal bands (or prog/power or power/prog or whatever) as well as a good deal of thrash. Bands I appreciate a lot include names such as Symphony X, Dream Theater, Rhapsody of Fire, Megadeth, Judas Priest, Helstar, Threshold, Metallica and so on. So I definitely have a lot of different stuff to listen to.

Now, about the metal I don't like. I pretty much can't stand black, death, grind, extreme, heavier doom, and the list goes on. This also includes most core stuff. There are exceptions to a certain degree. I have listened consistently to bands like Deicide, Vader, Trivium, and more recently Avenged Sevenfold. They're not among my favourites, but it's sometimes good to change things up a bit, and have another form of musical expression.
