Pfff I just keep on chewing off the ears of my friends, how awesome the music is,that I'm listening to and they don't really mind me praising it all the time. I have no idea how many friends I would have, if they were not that tolerant :-D
But if you don't have an actual person to talk to about all this, then why not visit more forums like this?

You mean writing reviews? Or am I missing the forum/community button?

Just gave this a listen-this is more up my alley-interesting, kind of bizarre, etc.

At this point, comment when you see something interesting. I don't want to tell you what to do either or even visit a particular site (especially if you don't find any enjoyment in it - clearly).

Post here as well. We have a sort of tight nit group here that loves to talk METAL.

Yeah, this entire thread is made up of left out oddballs, at least in the US. Extreme metal is almost taboo here.

Hebosagil's previous album cover caught my attention. Saw them live previous summer and they sure made me move!

This track is from just released third album. It rocks, hard.

Metal-heads have always been left-out odd-balls. Nuthen new here.

That's true, but the space inside what qualifies as metal is absolutely massive, and there's plenty of room for unusual instruments - organs, saxophones, tin whistles, etc all make regular appearances. Pretty much the only thing you need to be metal is to have a guitar in there somewhere.

 

Admittedly I'm far from an authority on electronic music, and most of what I have is from the early to mid '90s when techno and electronica were at their peak of popularity, and arguably quality as well, but what I do have can be put into pretty well defined categories that are not hugely different, certainly not to the level that Ayreon is different from say, Pig Destroyer.

The HE-500 is generally considered one of the more balanced and accurate HFM orthos.. but keep that in context, it's balanced for a HFM ortho. If you don't mind a closed back headphone, the Paradox is as flat as any headphone I've heard, costs less than the HE-500, and is excellent with metal. It's forgiving enough to not make most typically lousy metal recordings unlistenable, and the better then recording you feed it, the more it responds. Headstage is really it's only flaw, but with metal that's not really a big deal, and I doubt it's any worse than the LCDs which are hardly known for their headstages despite being open.
