Death/Doom/Grind but really more on the gothy industrial, ebm side, with huge dashes of neo-folk, folktronica, ambient and old school hip-hop and space jazz.

BTW there is an Open Official Oldhammer™ Spotify playlist:

It tends towards reference to the late 1970s- early 80s, but there is some more modern retro-doomy stuff.

Absolutely not. I was only alluding to the fact that I'm in no way a metal fan. I enjoy metal, I enjoy hiphop and I enjoy various electronic music types.

Zhu, happy to see you mentioning ebm... I've been a fan of Nitzer Ebb, Front 242 and DAF since the 90s and I really enjoy newer offerings as well.

Re: Any metal fans here?

I lean towards classic 60 and 70's rock, 80's and 90's rock and metal.
Big on: Black Sabbath, classic Ozzy, Bowie, Alice Cooper, Beatles, Stones, Hendrix, Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Iggy Pop, early Judas Priest and Uriah Heep, Deep Purple, Rainbow, KISS, GNR, Mr Bungle and Faith No More, GWAR, RHCP, Buckethead and all that.
I listened to more than my fair share of the obligatory Metallica, Pantera and Sepultura in the 90s of course.
I'm not really into the full on extreme metal/growling stuff though, I'd rather listen to Roxette :mrgreen:

Hey, I dug me some Roxette and Ace of Base growing up :)
You may wonder if old or new 40K is better.

Tool, Soundgarden, Ministry, & the classics like Motley Crue, Iron Maiden, & Judas Priest are all solid.

I can't really listen to the new stuff because it's like they are trying too hard & I just end up giggling. Epic, cheesy Metal love ballads are a riot as well. :lol:

Re: Any metal fans here?

I was informed very loudly and pointedly by Grunge fans that Soundgarden was most certainly NOT at all metal, when I was in 8th or 9th grade :)

Apparently the Grunge kids took that as an offense.

TO us, growing up, if it had heavy guitars it was at least kind of metal :twisted:

It's funny I had that conversation with a friend recently. Given that Soundgarden pre-dated Grunge, they really had no other category to fit into except Metal. Heck, they even earned a Grammy nom for "Best Metal Performance" before Nirvana pushed Grunge into the forefront & sales of flannel shirts went through the roof. :D

Music is neat stuff.

Re: Any metal fans here?

Lots of bands got unfairly labelled "grunge"- Soundgarden and Alice In Chains, The Melvins, TAD...were Pearl Jam even "grunge", really?

Re: Any metal fans here?

I think what happened is that Grunge was popular, so a bunch of bands that were cool and weren't super "metal" (which at the time meant California hair-metal-vomit or thrash) got shoved into that category.

Blue Oyster Cult, Devo, Grand Funk Railroad, Stevie Nicks.... (what? They were all on the Heavy Metal soundtrack so they MUST be metal. ... right? ? ;) ) .
