I mainly play guitar (for 5-6 years, 3-4 of those years I took lessons), I also took up bass to try and start a band.

I'll listen to anything inside and out of metal. But I prefer melodies in my metal, or the exact opposite (grindcore). I loved punk rock before I got in to metal, and still sort of do like it, so bands that fuse punk and metal I usually enjoy.

I am Christian technically (through baptism and confession) but I'd prefer to not belong to any one single religion because I think they all have their place. Plus I enjoy religion in general, the little things aren't that big of a deal to me.

My favourite songs to play are Goblins Ahoy! by Nekrogoblikon, and Suspended by the throat by Job for a cowboy (shut up).

I used to be in a band called the Plainfield terror. We were basically a metalcore band because all the other members enjoyed bands like Lamb of God, The agony scene, the black dahlia murder, etc. But I had fun, and that's all that matters.

Religion:

How often are you on UG?

Every day or 2 I check up on the metal forum and the pit for funsies.

Thoughts on the current metal scene?
There are a lot of good bands out right now if you look in the right places and avoid MTV. I'll admit to being into metalcore for a month or 2 last year (I have In This Moment and Diecast CDs to prove it), but its appeal wears off fast and hasn't come back.

Thoughts on the future of metal?
Metal is still alive and well as far as I'm concerned. There is always a new band to find that is doing something amazing, people just have to find them. I'm only worried about what will happen once most of the bands still making music are of the Ritalin generation and generic, uninspired music becomes even more prominent, it is hard for new bands to be inspired when there is nothing inspiring to listen to...

Whats your main instrument?
Guitar, a modified ESP EC-50 until I have enough saved up for a new one.

Any other instruments you play?
Bass, and some mandolin/saxophone/piano.

Whats your favorite types of metal?
I bounce around between black and death a lot. Probably Black right now since I just finally got Dissection's "Storm of the Light's Bane" and am loving every second of it.

Do you like other kinds of music? What are they?
Classical, some hard rock and a teaspoon of punk.

How long have you been playing?
2 years about for guitar.

Favorite song to play?
Transilvanian Hunger because it is fun and pretty easy not to **** up in public.

Favorite song to listen to?
Voyager's Pulse 04. Will chance in an hour or so, guaranteed.

Do you have a band?
Had one in high school that I did vocals for.

What kind of music/name?
Whatever we felt like at the time anything from punk to black metal.

Anything else you wanna tell us about yourself:
I look more like a scene kid then a metalhead, and I get a lot of **** for it, but I'm more into real metal then most would think.

Name: Kyle.

Age: 17.8

Country: Merry Ole England.

Religion (just curious, its optional): Agnostic, with ideas firmly reaching within LaVeyan Satanism.

How often are you on UG? Every day. I use it to fill in the inane hours of my pointless existence. That, or when i'm not on my xbox 360.

Thoughts on the current metal scene? There's plenty of great bands providing material in the underground, the current state of mainstream metal is dire though. Fans seem to get more hardcore/stupidly obsessed/deluded/fanboyish as time goes by.

Thoughts on the future of metal? It'll last forever, but the mainstream metal image will probably change somewhere down the line. I predict flares.

Whats your main instrument? Guitar. (Damn right I'm original.) Washburn WI65 PRO.

Any other instruments you play? Harmonica. I also slayed with a recorder for a few months back in primary school.

Whats your favorite types of metal? All of it. Death metal probably comes out on top though. It depends on my mood. I love a lot of atmospheric/folk/doom in times of melancholy/teenage angst.

Do you like other kinds of music? What are they? Oh god, do you want a list?! Basically: Classical, blues, jazz, folk, rock, and all the crazy subgenres that seem to branch off into explicit places.

How long have you been playing? 2 and a bit years. I wish I had started earlier but ah well, I was too busy experimenting with barbie dolls to pay any attention.

Favorite song to play? Well, i'm a blues player at heart. I like playing a lot of Hendrix stuff in particular, as well as improvisional 12 bar blues.

Favorite song to listen to? Err... At the minute it's probably one of Cathedral's funky stoner metal tracks. Walking to college in the morning I need something to distract me from the burberry armies.

Do you have a band? Nah. I can't find anyone that doesn't think Good Charlotte are music prodigies. I do have a fake myspace band actually, www.myspace.com/postmenofdoom to hear the deeply emotional and striking lyrics.

What kind of music/name? Postmancore.

Anything else you wanna tell us about yourself: I get incredibly horny when reading webbtje's posts.

Anything else you wanna tell us about yourself: I REALLY hate it when people call metal "scremo" or "emo". It's only half their fault though... Metal isn't a very open genre, as in it's not too inviting. Either you like it or you don't. Lots of people just don't know the difference between metal and emo.

How often are you on UG? At least once a day to sporadically check the forums

Thoughts on the current metal scene? Am very sick and tired of all the copycat mainstream metal bands, mainly the metalcore bands, and although I love shred and virtuostic soloing, am sick of every single band shredding it up now.

Thoughts on the future of metal? I'm certain that bands will start to get more simplistic with how they write as time moves on, which will alienate fans, right now metal is entering another golden age of mainstream acceptance and widdly widdly solos, but something has to change.

Whats your main instrument? Guitar

Any other instruments you play? Piano, drums.

Do you like other kinds of music? What are they?
Sure, Indie, classical, alternative, modern, jazz etc.
