I listened to Pessimist today.

I haven't listened to Pessimist in far too long, like a month.

I get on these weird swings where I will only listen to one type of music for a couple weeks, lately it's been.....hell, I don't even know. I think it's just been a few particular bands....like TestAment most recently, or the new In Flames CD I got....or Blind Guardian's "Imaginations from the Other Side". I sometimes wonder if I'm a more "open minded" metalhead than most, listening to pretty much all sorts. From Amon Amarth to Candlemass to Death to Blind Guardian to Iced Earth to Immolation to Exodus to Slayer to My Dying Bride to Vader to Sinister to Opeth to Rhapsody. Not just death metal, not just black metal (admittedly, it is my least listened to since I haven't taken the time to get into it), not just thrash, not just power stuff, not just doom. The whole gamut. It seems like a lot of people are either like "only the 8rU+A1 stuff iz good" or "black metal is the superior form" or whatever the case may be. I guess I find worth in a lot of different bands, but it only extends to the one genre itself. I mean, how can someone not like My Dying Bride if they've listened to it? Or how can they not appreciate Rhapsody? What I don't get is the people that think Iron Maiden, and Nevermore, and the like are fag or pussy bands because they have an actual vocalist. Heaven forbid a guy can actually sing.

I just figured it was time for a music post since I added a bunch of people to my friends list last night based strictly on music tastes and they might think I'm a poser if I don't actually talk some about music. Although I did have that In Flames post yesterday.....whatever. I HAVE TO FREAKING WRITE THIS SHIT SO I CAN BE DONE AND CELEBRATE TODAY!!!!!

All of your music preferences are awesome... because I listen to stuff from Tad Morose, to Opeth, to In Flames, to Children of Bodom, to Deicide, then Cradle of Filth, Type O, Immolation, SLAYER of course... and Rhapsody.. heh... It's awesome being this way, don't worry about what the "broodle" death metalers say, it's your metal choice, and it's cool that you're not trying to be "cool" to them.

All right, my wide variety of tastes has you both beat. I have albums by Opeth, The Kovenant, Children of Bodom, Mr. Bungle, Savage Garden, Iron Maiden, Tchaikovsky, Prince, Billy Joel, and Amorphis, Michael Jackson, Oasis, Twisted Sister, and U2, to name a few. ^_^

oh, please, have you seen my CD list on my web page?. between the Bach, Weird Al, Mahavishnu Orchestra, and Tom Petty, along with the wonderful selection of metal, nobody comes close to being as 0p3n-m1Nd3D as me!!!! :-P
