Ok so I want to try and get into music when I'm older, I know this is hard but I'm willing to spend all I got in terms of energy, money, you name it. But the thing is that I want to be in a screamo/metalcore band like The Devil Wears Prada but then sometimes I want to be in a heavy metal band like Five Finger Death Punch and Shadows Fall because metal like that is the greatest. I originally wanted to be in the heavy metal band but then I went to Warped Tour and I wanted to be in a screamo/metalcore band and then I went to the Five Finger Death Punch, Shadows Fall, Otep, and 2Cents concert last Thursday and I want to be in a heavy metal band. Pit, what should I choose?!?! I'm a guitarist and I can make screamo/metalcore music but it's a little hard for me to make heavy metal music even though I do try hard. What should I do?!

Or do you think I should start bands of both genres and see what I like best?

I actually hate my name, so your name is better. I just did it because I thought it would sound really cool and funny but it's really not hahah.

Smooth Jazz.
Seriously though, do both.

why do you have to play just one genre of music? do what you want, just don't be mediocre.

simple algebra says that two negatives make a positive. So we take a screamo/metalcore (a negative) and heavy metal (a negative) and combine them we get a positive ++++!!!

Why not draw inspiration from both genres and do somethign different?

Personally, I think you should wait a little while and see what sticks. Especially if one of these is a decision made not even a week ago. But, by no means do you have to stick to one genre, you know

first of all, metal like that is most definitely not the greatest.

Like melodic, black, death, symphonic, and/or avant-garde metal? Want to collaborate? Message me!

why not set realistic goals? I mean being a rockstar sounds nice but isn't really "planning your future" well. Sure be in a metal band when your young (23-30) but if you want to take music seriously as a career you need to be more open to different kinds of music.

I think he's talking about playing aspects from more than one kind of music.... But I dunno, that kind of thing is nigh-unheard of.

this, you're writing music so you should try something a little more original that suites your taste

It's all the same to me anyway. Doesn't really matter, the vast majority of people don't know the difference between the two, but I guess the real metal heads would (and they are your target audience). Just do what everyone else said
