So, I was told to redirect my question to this forum.
Here is maybe an interesting one. I've been dating my current girlfriend for about a year. We are both very much metal heads except we are into different subgenres. Its always been difficult in finding an overlap but not too bad...
My favorite bands are: Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Iced Earth, Dream Theater, and Gamma Ray Whilst hers are: Slayer, Overkill, Megadeth, Suicidal Tendencies, and Anthrax.

Anyway recently its been pretty difficult finding bands that we can both enjoy, anyone have any suggestions for us?
Some we currently agree are: Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Iced Earth, Early Megadeth(Past 5 albums have been really uggg), Annihilator, Enforcer, Accept, Anthrax, Warbringer, Death Angel, Exciter, Metal Church, and Early Metallica.

lol, why does it matter? The whole point of a relationship is that both parties bring different things to the table, you recommend each other things, you don't change your tastes so that you can be one individual being rather than two different people who can share the things they love with each other.

Guess what? My girl hates Kanye West, she still listens to him, I hate Al Green, I still listen to him. You know why? Because I care about her for more reasons than the music she likes. This is a dumb thread. Grow up.

So you both like metal, and can't agree on what to like?

wow. Aren't you both fickle.


Yeah, because you obviously weren't a fickle little pickle when you were 12.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Pretty sure all the bands you named are the same, I see no problem
It's over simplified, So what!

Are you serious dude?

My wife listens to Lady Gaga and this is what you're complaining about? lol

Fortunate for both of us music is secondary in our lives, to yknow, real life.

EDIT: Funny she listens to manlier metal than you

You tell them to grow up just because they're asking about things they can both enjoy? That doesn't imply that they don't have any tolerance for the things they don't enjoy about each other's taste.

They listen to metal tho, so I guess your advice still stands.

I don't really see anything wrong with listening to music together O_o
If anything its a branching out thing, where we live the metal scene is pretty poor so exposure is limited. It makes finding new music hard.

I'm not saying we don't get along because we don't like each others music or that it is a must that we do, I was just curious as to whether any of you knew of any bands that are similar to the ones we both like.

I know a good way to find music. It's called "this century". Try living in it.

That's chill. But you should be willing to listen to music that you don't really like if the other person likes it. & metal sucks.

You should probably be asking for music that doesn't suck if you want recommendations.

but then why did you pick all the things you both listen to that sound roughly the same?


Probably because he is either naive or unintelligent.

I have never even met a woman that enjoys doom metal as much as I do. If I had to search a girl compatible with all my interests I would die frustrated and alone.
#32
i really don't get why everyone's giving him this much shit for something so innocent but i'm enjoying it so

try boning to sinatra. itll help you branch out, musically. downside is you'll pop a stiffy every time you hear frankie boy's dulcet tones i think it's worth it though

They are trying to find common ground, not change eachother. Grow up yourself.
Edit: what about Volbeat and Slipknot or Black Sabbath for example

Primus2112 Prong is literally the only good thing you posted. Fall of Troy is awful, sounds like fall out boy mixed with some dude just screaming into the mic for the hell of it.
Let me guess, you are a Pantera fanboy that believes Phil Anselmo can do no wrong and Dimebag Darrel is the best guitarist ever.

BjarnedeGraaf We are pretty big fans of black sabbath, thank you for the recommendations and for being the first person on here who wasn't a douche or an idiot.

Both of you need to listen to more doom metal.

Pallbearer, I'll have to give more attention to. I liked Electric Wizard, not very knowledgeable about doom metal bands honestly.
