So, obviously this forum site is new, and I don’t feel like I’m experienced enough to step up to the plate and help contribute to Sponge, so I’m just going to post this.
What’s your favorite genre(s), band(s), album(s), and/or song(s)?
For me, I’d have to say the following:
Genre: Melodic Death Metal
I just love the whole idea of the genre. Mixing singing, screaming, melodic riffs, with death metal is a perfect combination in my mind. Early In Flames, Children of Bodom, etc.
Band: Slipknot - Nü Metal
I love death metal and the heavier end of the metal scene, but Slipknot was the first metal band I’ve ever listened to and I have a great deal of respect for them. Prepare for Hell tour, anyone?
Album:: “The Powerless Rise” by As I Lay Dying - Metalcore
This album was pure perfection to me. Every song in it fit perfectly, the solos were great, as well as the instrumentals. Both of the vocalists I love as well. Sadly we won’t be seeing any more of this band.
Song: “Lord of Woe” by Make Them Suffer - Deathcore/Symphonic Death Metal
Some would consider this deathcore, others would consider it symphonic death metal. I don’t really care what it technically is, all I care is that I love the song. I’m not well-versed in the arts of music, so I can’t give a technical explanation as to why I love it, sadly.
