Music Tastes:

So mostly, I listen to rock. I am heavily influenced by Nu Metal (band examples), which encompassed my teenage years.

Though I am known to go more heavy with bands when they have high lyrical content, example playlist when bands like these bring out a heavy lyrical track I enjoy them. I guess you could compare something like Slipknot’s Iowa album to later tracks like Vermilion. Or tracks by Lacuna Coil. Though mostly there is not enough emphasis on lyrics to coincide with the stability aspect emphasizing the instruments. I guess a good example might be to compare A Perfect Circle and Tool, and Slipknot and Stone Sour. Maynard sings for both the former, and Corey sings for both the latter (of course Slip’ has also gone on the same route occasionally). They are made up of arguably very similar people, yet the bands are totally different in content. In this regard I prefer A Perfect Circle (example album) and Stone Sour (example album) than there main, more maintream bands. Due to the more lyrical focus.

I also, go more ‘hardcore’ with bands like New Medicine, All Time Low, Fall Out Boy, and I guess The Pretty Reckless might fit that category.

Mostly I sit somewhere in between that though. Around Nu Metal or commonly titled, “heavy rock” or “progressive metal“. Prior, this genre was known as more “rock” than “metal” I think, and death metal like Cannibal Corpse and Rammstein was considered Metal. So I teeter on both Rock and Metal in this regard. Though Nu Metal I believe now is considered the average metal.

Say a playlist like this, is normal listening for me.

There are a lot of sub-genres within Rock/Metal though… its hard to explain :). I try :hugs:.

Though I do like listening to mainstream, and have alt playlists when I’m feeling in a different mood. My two main playlists are Default and Sex Songs. I have in the latter a mix of genres (the overall topic is the link between the songs), though Default is my main music tastes. I was influenced a lot by artists like Eminem, P.Diddy, Ashanti and other R&B singers at the time, so that is a strong part of my tastes also.
