Music Genres

Recommended Posts

Here we go again: I like to start threads so much that I have to do this one as well....I am curious as to what is your least favorite genre in music or do you like all music?? Obviously, my favorite genre is metal..My least favorites are: reggae, jazz + gospel...I just can't relate to these 3 genres at all....Any thoughts??? 8-]]

I can find something I like in most genres if I look hard enough.

My favorite is metal, I also like (hard or classic) rock, blues and classical (the latter of which I really need to expand my knowledge and collection of).

Not a huge fan of hip-hop or pop as I get bored of them pretty quickly and often find the music and lyrics typically insipid and mediocre. To judge whole genres is a pretty huge generalization though, and I'm sure that there's plenty of stuff out there that I would like, especially as the main experience I've had with these genres is stuff that's been on the radio or TV.

Not often a fan of most electronic music forms (especially simple, repetitive stuff meant for dancing) but have occasionally heard stuff I like, not to mention I'm lumping a whole lot of genres together when I say "electronic music" so really I'm mostly ignorant.

Modern country. I have an abnormal hatred of it partially because some people where I worked a few years ago used to play it over a radio all day at top volume. So loud in fact that, it'd cause the speakers to distort the sound. There was no escaping it. Eventually a bunch of people (including myself) complained about it, so it stopped. Aside from that, everything that's ever been bad in popular music is the formula for modern country. There's types of music that I don't want to hear, but that stuff definitely outranks them all in being my least favorite.

Modern country is the pits. I believe Tom Petty (an excellent musician) summed it up best as, "bad pop bands with fiddles." Rap/hip hop is odious bullshit. Anything aiming at being just dance music with little for the brain sucks. All poppy "boy bands" and their female equivalent should be slowly and painfully murdered with much use of salt in their wounds. Hair/glam and nu metal are just as bad and NOT real metal. Gospel is pretty abysmal too.

Favorites: metal, punk, goth, neo folk and some classical.

We do not really have country music in Scandinavia and gospel, well that is practically unknown over here! But aside from that: I just hate hip-hop/rap and techno!!! The former is just so mind dumbing stupid and techno makes me feel physically ill...I do not know if it is the frequencies in the vibrations from the music...but they make me want to throw up...literally speaking!!!

I sort of feel this way about techno music too. There's just something so goddamn uncomfortable about it.

    • Black metal is the snow-covered forest at sunset; the full moon glimpsed through jagged trees; the candle that flickers in ghost winds; the indelible emptiness of the lonely human soul that cries out to empty skies.

    • I’ve been watching a bunch of nature documentaries recently. Dangerous animals only, for the most part, because I refuse to devote an hour of my life watching turtles mosey around the deep blue. Additionally, I’ve sought out very in-depth material so I can appreciate the animal being analyzed. As a result I’ve been able to watch a decent amount of material closely scrutinizing the habits of predators, and that’s given me a particularly good context for understanding Sadist’s 2015 album “Hyena”.

      This album is intended to track the habits of a hyena. Seems a bit on the nose, but bear with me; the album’s style is important. The album takes the listener on a markedly violent safari in an open-top jeep. Feel the wind in your hair, enjoy the natural splendor of the savannah, watch some animals murder and/or eat each other. Bring along some Mango Jive but for goodness sake leave your droewors back at the hut. Musically, as far as the metal goes – it’s a technical death/thrash album with the ferocity of the latter and the substance of the former. The vocals are higher-pitched snarls, characteristic of Sadist and perfect for the concept; in fact the entire production isolates the smooth bass to allow for moodier lines from said instrument.

      I’ve always noticed that in the grand sweep of folk metal African music usually gets left out. Makes some sense – I’ve heard quite a lot of traditional African music and it’s way too happy and tropical. Then again, Dan Swano, Skindred and even Equilibrium have managed to make Caribbean music work in metal, so it’s not impossible. The next best thing is something thematically evocative, which is what “Hyena” represents. It’s not perfect; Sadist could have paced out the textures better and deepened the nature sounds, perhaps taking influence from the largely untouchable Russo-Finnish metal masters Second To Sun. That being said, it’s a one-of-a-kind work and Sadist deserves credit for taking their vicious brand of tech-death on a sun-bleached adventure into the wild.

    • After listening to both albums, I am having difficulty deciding which I think is better.  Both have excellent songs and guitar work, and express the atmosphere of Burzum extremely.  Personally, however, I think that the vocals are delivered better on Filosofem.  Filosofem also has more songs, but the 25 minute synth track is not as good as Tomhet.  What do you all think?

    • Post photos of your various collections here! 

      Here are three shots of my black metal collection. The first is the whole thing, but i've also included two closer shots that should be clearer when zooming in etc.  

      Entire Black Metal CD collection:

    • On BM scene there are also good worth of attention female vocalists. Some of my fav bands.

      1 Astarte - All female black metal band from Greece. In my opinion Tristessa is one of the best female growler.

      2 Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult - Onielar and her growls and style are something amazing. Nothing more nothing less. 

      3 Gedanken Toten Lebens - Interesting one-woman atmospheric black metal project. Lyrics are about naure, death and philosophy. 

      Who is your favourite black metal female vocalist? Do you like these bands? Or maybe you think black metal isn't for women? Let's start the discussion!
