Well, I'm mostly into thrash, melodic death, and metalcore, but I also enjoy death metal, some grindcore, and plenty of classic metal bands. I dunno what that would make me xD

Makes you cool thats it. I think the real metal heads can be open to each type of genre. I mostly listen to black and death, but I actually really like metalcore...actually just Lamb of God, I fricken love that band, but not to get off topic But I think it shouldn't matter what people like, but lets not start an argument off topic *waits to see if anyone goes way off topic completing my evil plan*
