I cant seem to settle on a type of music i want my band to play. Im best at playing blues. But my drummer wants to play more heavy music. Whats there to do..

settle it or find a new drummer. don't go into a band like that without agreeing on something, its just a waste of time.

Just start jamming with your band and go with the flow.
See where the music takes you. You might find something amazing...

Very good idea.

Try to come up with something experimental, different, avant-garde, whatever. It could be very promising.

also, just listen to music you've heard well about that you never really listened to

me and a friend wanted to start a metal band, and now we are leaning towards hardcore punk because of how great we realized it was, even though this was a while ago

Just collaborate and write songs...and then play them. I rarely find myself writing a great song and then saying to myself "wait...not my genre" and throwing it out.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

I would suggest exploring whatever genres interest you. You say you are best at blues, so it seems like playing heavier music would only help you improve as an overall guitar player instead of just playing to your strengths. But in the end play to your interests and odds are you can find a like minded person.

Do classic Metal, alot og it bluesey style solos and imporivastions. Also playing these songs will also help you alot mkaybe learning and the techniques of metal soloing, which may be of some help to your alround playing skills. Although i would go with any extremem metal because it dosen't normally have the same bluesy feel

Sabbath, Paul Gilbert. Stuff like that :p

If you don't want to play it and you can't make a decision together, quit it

Don't just do the same thing someone else has done. The blues may be a great genre, but there's really no point in playing it unless you're actually covering the greats. If you're doing your own music then try to mix it up a little. If your drummer wants to do something heavy then try mixing it up and give the blues a heavier feel. Come up with your own sound, and don't worry about what genre you're trying to emulate.
