Ok well, send me a song of them you like, and I'll listen to it a couple times to see if I really don't like it.

 

Here's a song I like, technically it's fantastic but the death grunts might be off-putting. If there is any truth in what you just said, you won't write it off just because of the vocals.

It's about energy. Play it loud.

 

I'm guessing you're very young. It's good to remain open to different kinds of stuff. You have a long time to explore music in front of you. It would be a waste to spend all that time on a tiny drop of the ocean of great stuff out there.

Music is all about mood to me.

 

When I listen to merzbow album "venerology" (lot of heavy noize),

, it saturates my mind,  helps me to forget everything, and relax.

 

While listening the artist "liquid mind",  I discovered that letting your mind wandering, instead of trying to find patterns , or a logic in the music, is actually  good to relax too.

 

When I'm a bit depressed, I tend to prefer music with dark  tones.

 

Otherwise I've noticed plenty of musical genre (psytrance, shoegaze, idm, ebm, etc..).

But without the proper mood, it's not so easy to explore  everything, imho.

It's not bad, I can see how it influenced music, especially the song paint it black is good. But I don't like it that much, it's still kinda crude I think, and obviously the youtube quality doesn't help.

I am young (23), but I'm not exclusively listening to only one genre. I'm actually just since a year listening to metal music, the more technical department, and it has blown my mind. There is so much to hear in the technical/progressive area of metal, I think it truly contains the most spectacular musical compositions of this era. I suggest tesseract - altered state, it's hard to even define. It's definitely not your typical metal music, it's very jazzy.

Yea, I'm not going to start headbanging to the Ambient music I'm listening to now. But I can throw on some Grand Magus and swing my neck loose. I listen to an immense span of genres, as I'm just a fan of music. From Classical to World/Ethnic/Tribal, to Blues/Jazz, to Rock/Punk/Metal, to all types of Electronica like the Ambient I'm spinning now... Robert Rich is incredible, by the way.

I have a sin in mind. Severely compressed / in audible drums. There are times when it's appropriate for the sake of the overall artistic endevor of the peice but still irks my jimmys.

One thing that bothers me is any time a group uses some sort of rhythmic device (things like syncopation or odd meters) simply for the sake of adding some level of interest to the music. Mostly because you get the sense that the music could be more effective if they hadn't done tried to incorporate this element.

Vocoder/distorted vocal effects for no reason.
