Wow....the only ones on that list I listen to are:
Apocalyptica
Lacuna Coil

,,,and of course Iron Maiden and Rob Zombie. I think I might have heard Moonspell before though....sounds really familiar.


Surprised no Opeth on that list. I really like them - even when they are kind of death metal screamo, the underlying melody is...well...a melody. And their more mellow songs (ie, not screamo at all), are wonderful! Blackwater Park is a fabulous album....but this song in particular is so mellow it's hard to believe it's by a death metal band:



I also have the 'usual suspect' Metallica albums...but I'm not really interested in anything much from among their newer albums. And I have some Dream Theater albums, of course....and some Disturbed, Godsmack, Saliva.... I really like Tool...and I guess some of their stuff ventures into prog metal......Five Finger Death Punch is decent...

I have also gotten into a band called Graveyard...sort of psychedelic rock/metal along the lines of Black Sabbath....Found them when I was looking for psychedelic....I don't think they are that well known...but not bad:



I don't know...for me, metal can be tricky because I don't really like pure screamo for the sake of it. A band has to be capable of other things besides screaming into a mic. Give me some melody...some technique....something! But then, I'm not a huge fan of Nightwish either. Too....over the top I think. Can't put a finger on it...although doing Andrew Lloyd Webber showtunes in their style might have a lot to do with it.
