Oh, never heard of OE before. But they sound great!

Out of all metal types, symphonic black metal is closest to my heart.
When I need a little pick me up, Dimmu Borgir or Carach Angren are the best :)

Playing metal is even better. Playing in a band may not be so great though as one might expect, and hope.

100% agree. But also that it could be other types of music besides heavy metal/alternative.

I was more into the later and my hubby introduced me to the former.

He's into the slower, heavier instrumental stuff too. Drone and some sludge metal, too. When I was first delving into metal, it was Opeth, Isis and Nevermore that we bonded over.

Some bands he showed me that I really liked:
Cult of Luna
Red Sparowes
Russian Circles

And recently, Marriages! We got their new album, "Kitsune" and it really rocks. The band includes some of the former members of Isis.

But my current favorite band is Coheed and Cambria, which I wouldn't say is metal. Actually, I'm not sure what they are now, but I LOVE them. We saw them in concert recently (With Russian Circles, who were also top-notch).

(lyrics from Coheed and Cambria, "Dark Side of Me")

In those discouraging days
I always missed the mark
When we were comfort and close
I would neglect to keep

Ooh, you safe and unexposed
A portrait of time repeats
This moment now replaced
With an empty wish to give
I give, I gave

I gave my everything
For all the wrong things
In this cold reality, I made
This selfish war machine

Oh, this has become hell
How can I share this life
With someone else?
I promise you

There is no weight that can bury us
Beneath the ghosts of all my guilt
Here in the dark side of me
Here in the dark side of me

Now in your absence I wade
Through the coursing, lonely, lost
And in this tragic dismay
I never could believe what I became

I gave my everything
For all the wrong things
In this cold reality, I made
This welcomed war machine

Oh, this has become hell
How can I share this life
With someone else?
I promise you

There is no weight that can bury us
Beneath the ghosts of all my guilt
Here in the dark side of me
Here in the dark side of me

Ooh, I couldn't give you
What you needed
It's all my fault
Too coward to believe I lost it all

I gave my everything
For all the wrong things
In this cold reality, I made
This selfish war machine

Oh, this has become hell
How can I share this life
With someone else?
I promise you

There is no weight that can bury us
Beneath the ghosts of all my guilt
Here in the dark side of me
Here in the dark side of me

I don't mind listening to metal music but to help me but if I am having a bad day it has to be good old British Punk music.
If you listen to Metalica sing so what then listen to the original by the Anti Nowhere League there is no comparison when it comes to power and feeling.... Metalica's version seems like agroup of kids practicing in the garage.
To me metal is just music but a lot of the punk bands (the real ones not Misfits and Blink 182 etc.) there is feeling and stories behind a lot of their tracks, be it an argument with the record producers or some songs I know even getting attacked by the police becase of their music.
I don't think I would of managed this last year without being able to vent my anger through listening to this type of music on youtube.

Oops... Just a quick correction cause my hubby told me...

Marriages has band members from Red Sparowes, not Isis.

Either way they rock. :)

Currently rocking out to Sylosis' new album - Monolith.

I find them to be one of my favourite bands currently, melodically amazing.

I'm stuck on Amon Amarth these days, at least for working out and driving. I haven't found another death metal band that I'm into even slightly, but I just love this group. Their music is so energetic, but it's balanced by undertones of sadness that really speaks to the core of my being. Never thought I'd enjoy listening to Sweedish death metal about norse mythology and such, and yet, here I am!
