    Musical preferences

    Just another zombie-unrelated thread,, this time focusing on music! Something we all love - be it blues, jazz, metal or R&B. Or something else entirely.



    I was wondering what kind of music you guys are into. After all, if people have similar tastes it can be a great way to discover something new.



    I myself mostly listen to hard rock and metal - usual melodic or progressive. My favourite artist is Alter Bridge, hands down, followed by Avenged Sevenfold, Amorphis, Kamelot and Escape the Fate.
    I am very nit-picky with the vocals though: I absolutely dislike grunting or screaming vocals - clean ones all the way. I love metal for it's guitar riffs, the drums and the melodies.

    Still, I do listen to Indi and underground or alternative songs when I'm in the mood. Think John Butler Trio, I Am Kloot, Tallest Man on Earth, the list goes on.

    I tend to listen to complete albums instead of single songs, and even more-so with concept albums.
    My favourite albums are AB III and Blackbird by Alter Bridge, followed by Nightmare by Avenged Sevenfold, Skyforger by Amorphis, and The Black Halo and Poetry for the Poisoned by Kamelot.

    And of course I have a Last.FM page, as music really is a passion for me. There's pretty much always something playing here.

    Also, since I really love to listen to the details in each song I try to have as much as possible in FLAC or OGG. I try to avoid MP3 whenever possible, though 320kb/s is okay until I can acquire a better copy.
    To actually be able to hear the difference, I have an Auzentech soundcard that's connected to my Z-5500 optically.

    What about you guys? Love to see if there's something I haven't heard of before!

    True, but that's only about what's playing right now - not about what you like in general.
    If you ask me, there's a significant difference.

    I suppose I mainly listen to old folk music. Woody Guthrie, Reverend Gary Davis, Leadbelly, Jean Ritchie, Pete Seeger. Actually I'm going to see Pete Seeger at the Clearwater festival this summer.

    On the more eclectic side, I really dig Billy Bragg, Beck, Wilco, Bob Dylan (pretty much everything from his career), The Be Good Tanyas (RIP), Buddy Holly, Sufjan Stevens, and Tom Waits. Oh, and did I mention Billy Bragg? Cause I really dig Billy Bragg. really.

    I feel you. The screaming just gets on my nerves, but when they come my way, hard rock and metal are both known to make me very happy. Reminds me of old times.

    Wow. So far, everyone is unique in this conversation. Let me continue that trend.

    General day to day, love me some Alt Rock (past and present). My radio is usually tuned to Alt Nation (sirus 21/XM 18) at home and in the car. Love most anything w/ a good bass beat in it. Electronic and Rap are always favs in the car when i'm in the mood to make the speakers bleed. I've got a sub in the back, love me some lows (when those pipe bombs dropped i almost wet myself).

    A list of artists i've gone thru recently. OceanLab, Blind Mellon, Pearl Jam, Outkast, CeeLo/GnarlesBarklay, MyChemicalRomance, BrokenBells, Mephiskapheles, JethroTull, Outlaws. AfexTwin, Ludachris, Lil Jon, TheCure, Coheed&Cambria.

    Forget country tho.

    Fav band. I've had a few, but it always comes back to Blind Mellon's Mouthful of Cavities. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WMY-n9MF6o (god damn heroin, takes the best of em).

    I'm like K Train. I like soundtracks too, but I also like Metal. I have a Zune pass (because Zune is the best) and I'm going to look for some of the artists you talked about, Capslock. I like metal but I also prefer good vocals and not just grunting and screaming. But that's a hard thing to find in music.
