I know there's already a thread for this, but I wanted to put in a poll so I could actually see everyone's opinions compiled.

So yeah, what's your favorite subgenre? Mine is melodic death metal.

EDIT: sorry for forgetting power metal lol......just vote other.

I like me some brutal death.
But what would qualify as technical metal?

It's between Progressive and Melo-death. But Melodic Death Metal takes it for me.
I Like Cake
Black metal, but everything's pretty much good.

SO if Janne and Alexi did a gay porn, would I be the only one willing to buy it?

That's a dumb question, you know everyone in here would buy it too. I know I would!

Search for Artefact.
I'd normally vote brutal death, but the past week I've pretty much only been listening to Opeth and Devin Townsend so I voted prog.
Thrash, I like progressive and a bit of Tech Death too. And Vader.

When tomorrow and today collide
The moon is at its highest
And the twilight seems fitting
For in these moments
The light at the end of the world

Thrash for me. Plenty of great bands, and not a whole lot of bad ones(that come to mind right now). Plus thrash is really made the groundwork for a lot of other genres too.

You're losing interest because you're simply not gay enough. Which leads me to believe you aren't cut out for metal.

I really meant tech death, but I wanted to be more broad.

Idk.....Meshuggah, Necrophagist, etc.

EDIT: lol at 2 for metalcore
What, no power metal, but metalcore gets a place? Shame on you!

Anyway, I went for prog, but I prefer mixed genres like progressive power metal, progressive death etc. I like every genre you put up, though I only listen to 4 or 5 brutal death bands and only a few metalcore.

Phill is a very attractive guy...

"I'm so tempted to sig that, Phill" - Sig it then

Unless otherwise stated, assume everything I say is in my opinion.

Looks like someone woke up on the wrong side of the cake this morning!

Definitely black metal.

You know a music scene is fucked up when it becomes difficult to keep track of who killed who, who committed suicide and who alledgedly engaged in cannibalism.

Thrash by a long way. Especially the darker, bleaker thrash, like new Exodus, Slayer and Evile. Not so much like Anthrax or Municipal Waste.

Voted other: Lack of salt in this thread.
Dyer's Eve is awesome, and has an abnormally large penis, which doesn't act as any hinderance to his everyday life despite its freakishly large size.
For unrivaled obedience, user King_ofKumbucha is awarded this spot of honor.
Misc. Metal ftw.

technical death metal:

I mainly listen to oldschool heavy metal like iron maiden, ozzy etc, but since that option doesn't exist, I voted Thrash
I voted prog because I couldn't choose.

And prog can be any of the genres up there.
