Here's the tracklist to my late mix. I wanted to represent all the things I've discovered in metal, but I don't have enough to fit them all it. Expect power metal, folk metal, Death/Melodeath, and a hint of Deathcore (Wait, don't go!).

1. Children of Bodom - Lookin' Out My Back Door: I've decided to start it out with something upbeat, cheery, and humorous. Also, Children of Bodom are my favorite band, and I wanted to include them.
2. Iron Savior - Tyranny of Steel. An epic tale of Iron Pirates in outer space. Power Metal band formed by Piet Sielck and Kai Hansen.
3. Exmortus - Axes of War. Picking up the pace a bit, a mix of speed, power, thrash, death, and neoclassical metal.
4. Origin - Finite. 280 BPM of ridiculous tech death. I actually know this guitarist, and he's a super guy.
5 and 6. Burn the Priest double feature - Bloodletting and Dimera. Lamb of God's earliest incarnation, sort of a blackened death metal/hardcore hybrid.
7. Children of Bodom - If You want Peace, Prepare for War. Bringing Children of Bodom back in for a bit, because I love them so much.
8. As Blood Runs Black - In Dying Days. New band out of LA, extremely talented.
9. Alestorm - Captain Morgan's Revenge - Slowing it down a bit, Scottish metal pirates Alestorm to bring the house down. When I say hillshire, you say farms! Hillshire! Farms! Go Meat!
10. Ensiferum - Dragonheads. Closing the set, Ensiferum with this classic viking anthem. May we meet again in Valhalla.

This concludes our broadcast day.

The only good band there is Origin, although I'll admit that I'm not familiar with Exmortus or Iron Savior. Ensiferum aren't bad either, but not good enough for me to listen to all the time.

Although, I do feel in an Ensiferum-y mood right now...

Exmortus are actually really good in my opinion, although I would have picked a better song.

Well, if anything, I did represent all the elitism that I discovered in the metal community.

That's the great thing about metal, though. Don't like it? Then gtfo.

Paul rules, he hooked me up with my guitar at GC, then proceeded to play for a little kid whose parents brought him in to buy his first guitar. if thats not a legit, solid dude then i dont know who is. and he's a super cool guy when i see him at shows.
#23
^Dude no way I see him at shows all the time. Maybe I've seen you at shows before?

No, it's okay, I don't care what you think. I like all those bands and songs, and I'm not going to stop just because you think that my music tastes are "juvenile." In fact, my music tastes ARE juvenile, I've only been a metalhead for the latter half of this year. I'm trying to be as open-minded as I can here. I just didn't realize that it was a cardinal sin to make a mix of multiple styles of metal. Melodic death, power metal, folk metal, neoclassical thrash, deathcore, viking metal... I'm sure that whatever your taste in metal, we can find something to agree on.

Notice how there are a lot of posts that say "Only interesting band(s) were/was X." So we have a bunch of people coming in and saying that the band that they like is great and all the others are crap. There's a word for that, I think, I'm pretty sure it's 'elitism?' So if liking a bunch of types of music is being "juvenile," then I don't want to have a "refined" taste in metal. After all, mixing multiple styles is how innovation comes around. It was the punk rock influence that mixed with NWOBHM to form thrash metal, after all.

Anyway, I'd like to conclude by saying that I appreciate the fact that we have a metal community so diverse that everyone can hate unanimously hate my mix because their favorite form of metal is mixed in with a lot of others. I probably would've gotten better feedback if I'd made an entirely black/doom/death/power/potato metal mix, but I don't really care.

Calm down man, not liking certain bands isn't elitism. EVERYONE here likes just about every genra of metal (and for some of us music in general). It's just, come on, CoB? At least throw one of their decent songs in there....

Come to think of it, my penis should've listened to more death metal.

Nothing wrong with mixing styles on your radio. The problem was with the bands you picked, not the styles they play.

You know who else likes a bunch of different types of metal? Every single regular in the forum. Saying "this band sucks" is expressing an opinion, not elitism.

The problem was that you picked crappy examples of the genres you mixed together. Here's a hypothetical mix that I could post when it's my next turn:

Dark Tranquillity - Lost to Apathy
Sabaton - Panzer Battalion
Arsis - Worship Depraved
Suffocation - Catatonia
Burst - Immateria
Converge - Wretched World
Insomnium - The Killjoy
Primordial - Gallows Hymn

See? I made that mix from a bunch of different styles, mostly the same ones you use. The difference is that you A) picked bands that none of the regulars like (seriously, Children of Bodom and As Blood Runs Black?), whereas the bands I picked are respected here, and B) picked bands that everyone here already knows (a flaw that the list I posted also suffers from), while the point is to introduce new music to people.

Decent list scourge, although I would have picked an older DT song, and I would have picked Maddening Disdain by Arsis. Also, scourge hit the nail on the head. Here, seeing as you're still a neophyte (not that there is anything wrong with that, we all were at some point) so to speak, allow me to show you.

Crypt of Kerberos-Cyclone of Insanity
Solstice-Blackthorn
Cosmic Atrophy-Prelude to Phantasmagoria
Crimson Glory-Lady of Winter
Lost Horizon-Highlander (The One)
Pensees Nocturnes-Dés-Espoir
Sadus-Hands of Fate
Vintersorg-Rainbow Demon
Scald-Sepulchral Bonfire
Jacula-Veneficium

There, a perfectly respectable list at least in my opinion. Diverse and good stuff in there, I don't know, your list just came off as condescending to me at least, how you posted a list full of bands for people to listen to which everyone here knows and has heard of. I'm not saying you have to have the blackest black metal from Micronesia, but it would be like me making a list with Slipknot, Disturbed, Trivium, As I lay Dying, or putting songs like The Trooper, Iron Man, Enter Sandman, etc. we've all heard it and it's just not appealing. Although Iron maiden and Black Sabbath are great, you get the idea, I hope.
Also, there are new bands there for you to listen to, Merry Belated Christmas.
