  • Metalheads: What Do You Listen to Aside from Metal?

    When too much ****************ty '80s thrash is being thrown in my face via XM, I always switch to classical. I'm not one of the "my metal is classical music" peckerheads, either. I think both genres of music have their places, and don't mix very well, regardless of what most shred wankers may say. My metal's melodic, but I know it's not exactly the Brandenburg Concertos.

    What d'y'all listen to other than metal?

    A little bit of classical here too. I love beethoven's second symphony, absolutely the most amazing piece of music. Also my physics teacher is starting to get me into Allan Holdsworth. The guy ain't from this planet.

        It's nearly always metal, but when it's not it's 80's pop (some of which i hated first time round). I used to be really into Bach for many years but that has faded. I also like female folky/pop stuff sometimes too, Beth Orton and similar. I don't really listen to female vocals other than Arch Enemy, normally. Rush is my favourite non-metal band.

        When i was a teen i wouldn't have been able to give an answer, it was metal or nothing. I hated everything else. Bach was the first thing to break that mentallity

          Very good point, I love a lot of '80s pop, too, especially new wave. Depeche Mode, The Cure, Echo & The Bunnymen, Tears for Fears, New Order, you name it, I love it.

                    Blues, a little country and sometimes the odd bit of female whining and moaning and nagging and not shutting the **************** up!!!!

                      I've always been a big fan of classical, especially Beethoven and Tchaikovsky. Other than that, some classic rock here and there, but it's almost always metal
