Metal is my favorite genre to listen to right now. Why? It’s pretty much the only good genre that’s out. The music industry is going downhill and not much good music out there lately. Most pop music sucks. Most rap music sucks. Most country music sucks and yes, most of today’s rock music sucks as well. Metal still seems to be coming out with a lot of good music lately. That could explain why I’ve been listening to so much heavy music.
I’ve been listening to bands like Opeth, Amon Amarth, Dream Theater, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Megadeth, Metallica, Venom, At The Gates, Burzum, Avenged Sevenfold, Ensiferum, Ghost, Gojira, Death, The Scorpions and bands such as those.
There are more metal bands I want to listen to and check out that I haven’t yet… bands such as Mastodon, Testament, Exodus, Carcass, Behemoth, Deicide, Suicide Silence and many more bands to name.
I also listen to metal music ’cause that’s where the best songwriting is. I love the guitar playing, the singing, the lyrics. I just love hearing heavy guitar sounds and enjoy hearing bands playing really tight music. That’s the kind of stuff that I like. I listen to all sorts of music but metal is my no. 1.
A lot of people don’t know that I listen to metal but I do. I have been to metal concerts before, yes. I am a metalhead even though people may not think it. I have no problem wearing metal band t-shirts as I do have a few of them and want to get a lot more
Metal is awesome. Listening to metal helps make me feel better and get things off my system when I listen to it. As a musician, that’s the kind of music I want to play myself and it’s why I had to get a new electric guitar so I can play metal. As soon as I got that new guitar, I started studying and practicing rock & metal guitar right away. I spend hours on the guitar trying to figure how those metal guys play this stuff and it’s coming along quite well. I can play headbanging music and when I’m ready I’ll show you what I can do.
I’ve been listening to metal for most of my life really and it all started when I started listening to Twisted Sister when I was a kid in the 80’s. I couldn’t stop playing the Twisted Sister vinyl, “Stay Hungry” which is an album that I still love. Metal will always be an important part of my life. It’s just cool music to listen to. If other people have a problem with that, I don’t care. I listen to music that I like and what I want to.
I’m definitely a true metalhead ’cause if I weren’t I wouldn’t have listed Burzum, Venom or At the Gates. A fake metalhead wouldn’t have known who those band are.
