I love metal. Death Metal, Black Metal, Melodic Death, Tech-Death, it's amazing. Well, Power Metal isn't too great. I don't really like that one, or Hair Metal, or Nu Metal. I figure there's probably more that I like and more that I don't, but I just don't care to make this an extensive, all inclusive list.
