Songs on my MP3, which range from the Japanese group: Maximum the Hormone, to American bands such as Slipknot, soundtracks from my favorite movies and most of all, Dutch bands such as De Heiderjooses and Blof.

Atm, just a bit of old Sepultura but it's getting late so I may end up shifting to Paramore in about 10 minutes :)

They're not as obscure as a lot of the bands I have :P

Valhalla's an awesome song. Symphonies of Doom is a demo, hmm...
I think my favorites would be Under the Ice and Welcome to Dying maybe :D But it's really hard, they're all awesome :-D

Watching Euskaltegi. It's part of a sketch show Vaya Semanita.
I hope that when I teach English this fall, my students will be a little more dedicated.

Also, thanks for reminding me to find a way to add /tl/ to a conlang.

Seem now I like Nightwish (with both Tarja and Anette since really they're different enough you might as well just call them a different band with the same name), Epica, Within Temptation and similar bands but what's really odd is that, in general, I'm not a huge fan of Tarja's solo work but I really can't tell why.

And a little something more... DEATH METAL!!! And obviously not forgetting... BLACK METAL!!!

Me neither. I admire Tarja as a vocalist, but I like her solo work as much as I like, say, Atargatis or Delain. I guess it's because her first solo album was more Symphonic Rock than any kind of metal. I hope her next album is going to be better.

Anyone here listen to mainstream? (I can tell I'm gonna get a lot of flak for this... :D)

Anyway, just got back from a party and this was the last song they were playing, so it's stuck in my head.

Nightwish and such is mainstream as far as I'm concerned. (and they've been mentioned)

Actually, I think that might just be it, i.e. she's a great vocalist. It'd be like if Tuomas decided to go solo and only played guitar. I mean that's not the only reason but it seems to be quite a big part of why I'm not a fan of her solo work, it's kind of... incomplete.

Haha, not to everyone's taste but considering that I can listen to Industrial Metal and stuff like Paramore on top of that I can't really say anything.

It definitely seems to be closer to mainstream in Continental Europe, and especially Scandinavia given how highly they rank in the album and single charts when they bring out something new, but in the UK they're not all that mainstream. I mean they probably have more listeners than say, Marduk or Behemoth but they're not widely known AFAICT.

Not atm, but I do like all kinds of music. I don't dislike an artist or song because others like it.

I am listening to Eterna Rimo - Mia Loko at the moment.

I know what you mean, I feel the same way. It's like her music lacks that Tuomas touch. :-(

Is Rammstein still considered Industrial? Cause I love them! :mrgreen:

Mainstream like Nightwish or mainstream like Lady Gaga?
