    So I have done a search on this, and if I overlooked it please forgive me, but while I saw a couple of threads about music I never saw one dedicated to heavy metal itself. So I thought I'd bring it up wondering just how many actual metal heads we have here. I myself am a lover of thrash metal although I do listen to all kinds. The main bands I listen to are the big 6(Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax, Testement, Exodus, and Metallica), Cannibal Corpse, Opeth, Lamb of God, Dream Theater, and Devin Townsend. Needless to say I listen to all types. Who else here flys the metal flag?

    Please allow me to adjust my pants,
    so that I may dance the good time dance,
    and put all the on-lookers and inocent bystanders into a trance.

    Huh ,I cant hear you . I listen to all types of music metal to the met . If you dont enjoy metal it is probably because your speakers suck .

    Yo. Not really into the same styles of it but I'm a fan of bands like Zoa, August Burns Red, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster, Lamb of God, Dream Theater (saw them live a few years ago and it blew me away), In Flames, and I'm sure dozens of others. I like Metallica but can't in good conscience support a band who sues their own fans.

    No, my name is spelled 'Luxury Yacht' but it's actually pronounced 'Throatwobbler Mangrove'.

    I hear ya, that's why I put them at the end of that list, but I have to put them in there because they got me out of rap and into metal...gotta give em some kind of credit. I've heard a little Sons of Disaster, and I've heard OF those other bands just never really gave them a listen, but I'm always up for something new to me so ya never know.

    sincityjeff, I don't know how the hell I forgot about Maiden, it must be getting close to my bedtime. I saw them last summer and all I can say is it was a religious experience for me.

    Many of you know that I am a "Classically Trained Pianist"...
    But, I do like some of the "Metal" music.
    Rammstein being one, Rob Zombie being another.
    I don't listen to them exclusively... after-all I am a child of the 70's.
    I am into Shadowfax, Emerson Lake and Palmer, and a few others, which were the "Metal" of my generation.
    One thing this thread needs are....

    I am definetly a metal guy. I do like everything from the Beatles, my favorite band, to Zeppelin.
    All the bands you listed I have checked out. Except Devin Townsend. Will check him out.
    I do not like much of what is played on hard rock radio today. Most of it is not metal at all.
    Have seen Maiden, Metallica many times, Judas Priest, Testament, Megadeth, Dream Theater, Slipknot, and on and on in concert.

    Sabbath with Ozzy is my favorite of all time for metal. Testament has the #1 spot in the thrash sub genre. Don't forget Judas Priest either!

    And then Apocalyptica comes on my player...mmmmmm
    Anybody who doesn't like the yelling and distorted instrument typically associated with metal should give these guys a shot. Cello quartet that started off as a metallica cover band and slowly moved into doing their own stuff. Some very beautiful stuff.

    Metal fan since 1984. I was 9 and when I heard Motley Crue's "Shout at the Devil" for the first time I was blown away. It progressed from there, all the bands you listed and more. I've seen Slayer live twice, once in '95 and again in 2006. I got into some of the heavier bands, Deicide was a favorite (they're great live!) But nowadays I tend to stick the main ones you listed and a lot more classic rock such as Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, and of course Black Sabbath.

    Actually those last two Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, if I could I only listen to those two bands for the rest of my life I could die a happy man.

    Oh and... UP THE IRONS!!!

    I'm a fan of Maiden, old Metallica, Slayer and I used to play in a blackmetal band. I listened to old Darkthrone, Burzum and Emperor a lot during those days. Nowadays, I'm mostly listening to stuff like Acid Bath, Rammstein and old hardcore punk stuff like FEAR, GBH, X and Exploited. I currently run a baby label for Finsternis (Black/Doom), KBT (Gothic Metal), and the Porridgeface (Old Skool Speed/Thrash).

    Hey Baron, when I first joined here and saw your screen name I thought of King Diamond. There's a song called "The Cross of Baron Samedi" on his "Voodoo" album.

    I remember that, juvat! I listened to Mercyful Fate a little bit, alond with Voivod, Laaz Rocket, and Killing Joke on WREK out of Georgia Tech at night on their WREKage metal show. That was in the 80s and they played a lot of that stuff. They played King Diamond's whole Abigail album one night.

    Here's a pic of me from the blackmetal days (try not to laugh too hard). The pistol is a .50 cal cap and ball that I built from a kit. It works great and is fairly accurate. We always had this thing going with weapons in our pix, normally swords. I did this one with the pistol, as a taunt, after actually challenging someone to a duel. That person refused the duel under the penalty of being a known coward and I did the pistol pic to rub it in. Probably a good thing because he'd be dead and I'd be in prison right now, but that was blackmetal.

    Mastodon, Every Time I Die, Norma Jean, Russian Circles, Pelican, Dillinger Escape Plan and so many more. Seems like a lot of these lists are the same bands.

    Nice!! Abigail is a classic. I will admit, King Diamond is definitely an "acquired" taste, but once you "get it" there's no going back. That's awesome they played the complete Abigail album, his albums are pretty damn cool in that they tell a complete story from the first song to the last, so while you can listen to individual songs, you won't get the whole story unless you listen from beginning to end.

    Ahhhh...Mercyful Fate. "Don't Break the Oath" is easily one of the best album covers (and one of the best albums period) ever put out by a metal band.

    Yeah Right up there with To Mega Therion by Celtic Frost and Bathory's Blood, Fire, Death! Finsternis' Sea of Blood album is essentially a 45 minute opus in 9 parts.

    growing up in the eighties i always was a little metal head, and was the long haired guy listening to thrash in high school that everyone assumed worshiped satan and sacrificed virgin kittens on the weekend. (i didn't). as i have gotten older my tastes as a whole have definitely mellowed but i still keep alot of the metal i grew up with on my itunes, because sometimes i have to sedate the angry fifteen year old that lives inside me.

    True, that. Of course I remember when a guy could be hated for liking Metallica, but for all the right reasons. My presence alone invoked a witch hunt during the "Satanic Panic" at a high school in Paris, Texas in the late 80s. Ironically enough, my beliefs at the time were more or less Christian. The witch hunt lasted until the witch hunters bothered a bunch of local kids who played D&D. One of their dads was a lawyer who scared them more than Satan.

    Yup, Im in to about the same style as the OP. Until I started playing music Metal was all I listened to. Now keep in mind that I was born in 71 and my parents metal is still a big favorite of mine. Im a now pretty much OK with any style of any music.

    Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Scorpions, etc. from the 70's- 80's. Sabbath and Led Zeppelin at the top of my favorite bands list. Not much into hair metal or thrash but some Metallica is appealing. I enjoy "The Junkyard" on XM and try not to miss Eddie Trunk's metal show on Monday nights.

    Of the new bands, Black Country Communion is a favorite, here doing a classic Deep Purple cover:

    I see a lot of good bands on here. My favorite band would have to be Tool. They are the Led zeppelin of my generation. Although it would be cool if they would make a record sooner than every six years.

    For the ELP Guys, this was taken at the Melody Maker Poll Awards Concert held at The Oval Cricket Ground, London, September 1972 where ELP had won Best Band in both the UK and International Sections.

    Also as seen in this shot, UK Legendary DJ Alan "Fluff" Freeman.

    Same Concert Dutch Band "Focus"

    Genesis, back in the days of being "The REAL Genesis" with Peter Gabriel on Vocals.

    Finally, the band that everyone forgot "FUDD".

    I am a musician and so I find myself listening to a wide range of music but I am and will always be a metalhead. The different varieties of metal that I listen to vary depending on my mood but I'll drop a few names...

    Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Bathory, Venom, Hirax, Overkill (I got to see them live in Calgary on their Canadian tour in 2005 and even got to meet Bobby Blitz), Immortal (Abbath has still got it on stage), Blind Guardian (kick ass live), Dragonland, Holy Grail, White Wizzard, Mourning Beloveth, Funeral, Agalloch, King Diamond, Korpiklaani (fantastic live), Tyr (also amazing)...That is all I care to rack off the top of my head.

    Baronsamedi that picture seriously got me laughing. Very old school Mayhem haha.

    When I was younger I listened to metal. More of AC/DC, Black Sabath, The Who kind of stuff. My buddies were into the Death metal stuff but I always felt it was kind of a "Girl Repellent" and I drifted away from metal when I was around the chicks. I was at my old room mates kids 3'rd birth day party last year and he put on some old Iron Maiden while he was grilling. All the wives gave him the stink eye and the dudes were in memory lane.

    The thing that makes life tricky for us that are of a greater vintage........ coff coff, is that suddenly we became surrounded by all manner of different names for various genres of music.
    Back when I was a Lad..... We had, Classical, Folk, Country, Country and Western, Pop, Rock, Underground, Blues, Jazz, etc.
    Underground would later become Progressive Rock, which then sometimes transformed itself into "Heavy". Heavy Metal....
    (thanks Steppenwolf) came rather later. Up until that point, I was keeping up reasonably well. Then here in the UK we had NWOHMBs or, New Wave of Heavy Metal Bands, which was where we first really started to catogorize bands such as Def Leppard, Iron Maiden, Anvil, Diamond Head etc.

    Now we have things like Death Metal, Speed Metal, Thrash etc and in many ways, one can see where these may have slotted back in the old days.

    I tend to think of myself as a fan of Classic Rock, Blues Rock etc if we are talking about the heavier side of things? So it does get a bit complicated these days when trying to pigeon hole bands into their relevent genres.

    Mind you? It makes me smile when I hear my 15 year old Grandson referring to Prehistoric Rock, "Hotel California" being a good example, and yet...... his real liking (despite being too embarrassed to admit it to his friends, ) are bands such as The Groundhogs, Uriah Heep, Boston, Kansas, Free, Led Zep, Wolfmother,Maiden and then as the odd curved ball, a long defunct UK band called Sad Cafe.

    Wow lots of metal fans. I work in the music business so I am lucky and have gotten to meet some of my music idols. Fringe benefit.

    To Logandow's question. I didn't know what a sporran was. I looked it up. A pouch that goes with a kilt. No kilt but would like to get one some day. My 5 year old has one though. My leather pouch is from a crafter at our MN Renaissance Festival. Works well to hold my pipe goodies. Here is thier website.

    KISS, AC/DC, Metallica before they started themselves 'Tallica, Megadeth, and so many more. Currently enjoying a little more Gothic Death Metal like Leaves' Eyes, Amon Amarth and Tyr. Leaves' Eyes "My Destiny" got me hooked. Think Amy Lee from Evanescence only better. With a gothic metal band behind her.

    Amon Amarth is some badassness. In the "avant death metal" category Alas and Therion are hella cool too. Not much into country but having been around it for awhile, I know quite a few Alabama and Merle Haggard songs. David Allan Coe, too. country is just not all that fun for a bass player. Metal and fusion are lots of fun. I've met Chuck Rainey from Steely Dan. He's a badass.

    So Tool is without a doubt my all time favorite band. Their front man, Maynard, has a side project called Puscifer. Their new album comes out next week but Spin has it up on their site in its entirety right now. If you're a fan of Tool or APC then definitely give it a listen:

    Seems most people on here have a feel for more of the throwback metal bands. I can appreciate what they bring to the table and their influence but I still go to small metal shows regularly. The biggest I have gone to in years was Mastodon (who I am going to see with Dillinger this year) and that was a big deal for me. I appreciate the Tool references.

    @lyst36: Dillenger's is at the top of my list as well. Never seen them but I'd love to. Ire Works and Miss Machine get played fairly regularly here. I love Mike Patton too so Irony is a Dead Scene get's thrown in every now and then as well I'm not much for a lot of the bands that have been mentioned here either (didn't grow up with Ozzy or Maiden though I do like them...just not as much as most of the people here it seems). Couple of other's I didn't mention that I've been listening to lately are The Famine, Living Sacrifice, Clutch (another of my all time favorites), Machine Head, etc. Also, has anyone mentioned Pantera yet? Can't have a metal conversation without Pantera

    Wow! I am pleasantly surprised to see this many other smokers are also "headbangers"! I never woulda' thunk it ....
    My all-time favorite groups are Metallica, Tool, and Led Zeppelin. I like most of the old school groups (Sabbath, AC/DC, Maiden, etc.) along with some of the newer ones -- Mastodon, in particular, is incredible. Queens of the Stone Age and Black Mountain are also great...

    One band that needs mentioning (but is almost always overlooked in metal discussions): Blue Oyster Cult.

    Hey lyst36, I saw Mastadon jus about a couple years ago when they were touring for Crack the Skye with Dethklok. They are an awesome band. The new album is stellar. A step in the right direction to follow up CTS.

    Can't forget Deadhorse from here in Texas. GWAR is a fun as hell band to see live. Don't know if the Plasmatics count, since they were somewhere between punk, metal and performance art but they and Motorhead are all-time always-listen favorites. the one and only time I've ever sand karaoke, it was "Highway to Hell" by AC/DC.

    In the spirit of trending thread necromancy, I hereby resurrect this thread.

    I listen to all forms of music. There's simply too much talent out there to limit one's self to one genre. The one exception to this rule is country. I believe country music died with Johnny Cash. I do, however, love a lot of heavy metal music. Iron Maiden, Sabbath, (old) Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Disturbed (more hard rock now?) -- all bands that have a place in my collection.

    My most recent metal find is Solution .45. They are known as "melodic deathcore," but they have tendencies towards the progressive. The big standout from this band is the singer. I've never heard a rock singer with his type of vocal range. When he growls, he sounds demonic; when he "sings," he sounds amazing. They are fairly big on the other side of the pond, but I'm still hoping they make a name for themselves in the U.S.

    Here's some videos by the group, one banger and one ballad:

    You get to see a shadow of the former GWAR.

    Not really into the hair-metal bands of the 80s much at all (Bon Jovi, Poison, Whitesnake, Motley Crue etc.). Mostly into bands like Seether, Three Days Grace, Smile Empty Soul, Shinedown, Nickelback (yes they are hard rock listen to an entire album once and you'll see), Rammstein, Eisbrecher, Disturbed, Boysetsfire, System of a Down, Smashing Pumpkins, Bush. Gotta be able to pump me up for a hockey game and those bands do that very well.
