I hadn't even thought to look it up. I just checked five or so different sources and every one was different. :? Some say that metal has no screaming and screamo only screaming, others claim that it's based on the lyrics. There were more than that, but I can't remember them right now.

Considering I've been up since before it was light out, I'm tired and don't care enough at the moment to look into this much. I'll try to remember to do it tomorrow, when I'm completely awake. x;

I used to not like metal. It's growing on me, though. c;

Post-hardcore, melodic metalcore, punk rock, alternative, and some indie rock are my favorites.

But there are WAY too many sub-genres for rock/metal.

Me too Jess, I really wasn't a fan of metal or rock at all. Then I started listening to it because of my friend and now I'm a bigger metal fan than him :P

And yes Delta, there's a ton of sub-genres for rock @[email protected]

    Metal is mostly an instrumental based genre, but vocals range from anywhere between clean singing to deep growling to dramatic tenors to mid-to-high pitched shrieks or any combination of the sort. Black metal tends to be the closest to anything resembling "screaming", but it's not so much screaming as it is just harsh high-pitched vocals.

    But like I said, it's an instrumental genre. No matter what the style, the vocals are simply just another instrument to people like me. The aggression within the instrumentation is its main attraction.

    Also, in case anyone's interested, I have list of metal album recommendations that I've been passing around, encompassing a variety of subgenres. If anyone's interested, just ask and I'll PM the list.

    Okay, that makes more sense. x:

    @Jz
    I actually stumbled upon a lot of the music I like with an online radio. I didn't like any metal before then. I'm actually listening to a metal song right now, though haha.

      I listen to a whole lot of the stuff, so I don't tend to pick absolute favorites.

      I'm currently listening to a symphonic black metal band called Emperor.

      Other bands I've been listening to lately are:

      Sepultura, Pantera, Machine Head, Slayer, Metallica, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Dark Tranquility, Bolt Thrower, Wolves In The Throne Room, Drudkh, Mayhem, Immortal, Dream Theater, Exhorder, Meshuggah, Nevermore, Saint Vitus, Candlemass, Prostitute, and Eluveitie.

      I love them. I've actually been listening to The Trooper a lot lately. I just love that one. One of my favorite^^

        Number of the Beast and Powerslave are both terrific albums.

        Like I said, if anyone wants a list of album/band recommendations, just ask. I have it stored on my PC Notepad.

          I like pretty much any rock genre out there, especially alternative rock and heavy metal. I'm more of a fan of recent works (from 2000 onwards) but I like a handful of songs from back in the 70s and 80s, such as Metallica's Master of Puppets and Iron Maiden's The Number of the Beast.

            I can start off a recommendation here with an excellent heavy/progressive metal classic:

            Queensryche's OPERATION MINDCRIME

            Fantastic album. Tells a nice story, too.

            Hmm, metal huh? I don't listen to this genre of music. It's one of my least favourite genres, unfortunately. :/ I like listening to pop, rock, classical, jazz.....well, about everything else except metal.

            To each his own.
            I really only specifically dislike rap and country. The rest is tolerable or I like it. x:

            Eheheh. I put the operator symbol on a shirt today. Hopefully it will be wearable by tomorrow.

            For me I enjoy almost any genre as long as I enjoy the song or artist. For the most part I have one artist from each genre that I don't mind listening to.

            That said a lot of people say they dislike rap and country. I kind of wonder if they give it more of a shot than they do. There is a wide variety in at least the latter I've realized. Some of it I really enjoy and others I can't stand.

            I like all kinds of music, except classical and country.

            They just don't get my interest at all.

              I'm not a huge fan of dubstep, rap, pop, or country.

              Country especially because my mom sings it all the time and she has a terrible singing voice.

              A lot of modern rap is....unintelligent, lyric-wise, to say the least. (no offense to rap fans) It doesn't sound right to me.
              Country isn't as bad, although I still don't like it.
              And I'm perfectly fine with dubstep and pop and whatnot.

                Ooh, this is a topic I can get into!
                I can get into pretty much any genre, I judge it by band more though to be honest.
                Right now i'm listening to Fire Coming Out of the Monkey's Head by Gorillaz. These guys are one of my favorite hip-hop/alt/alt rock band.

                As for the punk rock thing Carchar, I agree the old stuff was amazing, but music should change and grow otherwise it becomes boring.

                  Classical music depends pretty much a HUGE amount on the composer and the type of music the composition is. I dig Mozart, Bach, Tchaikovsky, Widor, and some Wagner and Shostakovich.

                  I'm especially fond of pipe organ arrangements as well.

                  @Rococo:
                  It's not so much the music that I dislike about it changing (although it doesn't help), it's the attitude. Punk used to be all about anarchy, sticking it to anyone and not giving a f***; nowadays, it appears not so much.

                  I tend to go by songs more than genres or bands. Even in a genre that I normally dislike, there are some exceptions with certain songs or possibly bands/artists. This gets annoying, though, because I have a difficult time finding a band that I generally like, not just a few of their songs.

                    Punk's decline reminds me of George Carlin's rant about how Harley Davidson lost its meaning:
