Angry - Children of Bodom (great growling/screaming, lightning riffs), Verisakeet from Moonsorrow
Melancholy - Power ballads (generally only a couple of songs from each band), maybe some milder black metal like Forefather

Happy - Usually power metal or progressive (Stratovarius, Nightwish, Kamelot, Riverside, Dark Moor, etc...)
Sad - Doom metal or anything with a moody atmospheric (Anathema, Swallow the Sun, Amorphis, Draconian, Beseech, etc...)
Angry - Something extreme, usually thrash, death or black metal (Behemoth, Kataklysm, Legion of the Damned...)
Neutral state - pretty much everything combined I guess. Hypocrisy, Iron Maiden, Amon Amarth, Nevermore, Opeth, Threshold, Katatonia... and so on

Hmm.. interesting, let me see:

-happy/pumped - WASP, Manowar, Candlemass's first album, Priest, Saxon, Iced Earth, Running Wild, Amon Amarth, Scorpions, basically anthemic, catchy shit, not just trad metal but also stuff like Paradise Lost's song Erased or Cradle of Filth's Death of Love.

-sad - no music usually

-angry(but not real anger, just when i'm pissed off at something momentarily) - Manowar's The Day The Earth Shook DVD.

-calm state - extreme metal usually works for me when i'm calmed, so Slayer, Cannibal Corpse, Immortal.

I can't say I have any music for a particular mood either. Black, Doom, Death, Thrash, Prog, Heavy, it's all good all the time. Obviously there are times when I feel like listening to one particular genre more than another but it definitely isn't because I'm feeling a bit 'sad' that day or something.

I only really have designated bands/genres for angry, study and sleep.

Angry
-Kinda pissed - Meshuggah's Straws Pulled at Random (calms me down)
-Really Angry - Other Meshuggah, or Nile, volume steadily increasing
-Somehow angrier - Emperor's IX Equilibrium or Abigail Williams

Study
-Post Metal - Neurosis, Isis, Cult of Luna
-Mastodon/Baroness
-Tool

Sleep
Either Mastodon's Crack the Skye, or Iron Maiden's Seventh son of a Seventh son. Either of those usually get me off to sleep.

I let the music decide my mood instead of my mood deciding the music.

For example, All types of Metal make me pretty damn happy when i listen to them. But I would become very sad if I had to listen to some nu- shit.

[Anyone with similar feelings]


There is no relation to what state of mind you are in and the type of metal you listen to? Do you have an idea why that is the case? I find this interesting, because for example the desire to identify with the emotions portrayed in the music is something that happens often enough. Or the idea of uses and gratifications wherein you listen to a certain type of music to a certain goal, like entertainment, discharge, diversion, solace, etc. Though that is also leaning towards using music to affect your affective states (there's like a sort of feedback between your mood depicting the type of music you listen and the effect the music has on your mood).

So, if your answer on my first question is that there is indeed no relation, do you think there is a relation between the type of music you listen to and it affecting your then current mood?

As for myself, it's more the case that the music I listen to influences my mood than my mood depicting to what I listen to. Like when I put on the latest Anathema I go into melancholy, but when I go to Tuatha De Danann and their happy joy joy folk then I get all giddy. But of course there are certain moments that some music feels right, and some doesn't.

When I'm angry or sad, it's death or thrash metal. If I'm really happy, it's power metal. Aside from that, I just listen to whatever I happen to feel like hearing at the time.

-calm state - extreme metal usually works for me when i'm calmed, so Slayer, Cannibal Corpse, Immortal.

I feel the same, extreme metal makes me concentrate on the music and melody that drive me away from all tension or hump, it either soothe my mood or tired me out which leads to be calmer.

The interesting I find that is extreme metal cant help during workout and not fit to me.
