So what's your favourite metal subgenre? Mine is progressive metal; love it's creativity and with lengthy songs it gives the artists enough time to produce a lot of diversity within a track. Most of the time the musicians are highly skilled as well as being able to combine emotion into their music. Additionally, I find that this genre of music can be very experimental at times.

Btw, if your favourite genre is not on the poll it's because I didn't have enough space to put it on. So click other and say what your favourite genre is.

I like a bit of all genres but black, death and gothic are probably what I listen to the most.

It tends to fluctuate. I'm kind of going through a folk metal phase at the moment, but I can never go wrong with thrash regardless of what phase I'm in

Well i voted other,

NWOBHM! (new wave of british heavy metal) i love all genres but i like that one specially.

when you said "heavy metal" i wasn't sure if you meant Black sabbath type or NWOBHM so i picked other.
"they can't stop us,let them try,for heavy metal we will die"
"on olemassa asioita karmivimmat yönä olen yksi heistä."
" we are the new bucolic,we are the pulse of the maggots"

It's difficult as it changes every five seconds... I lean towards black metal since I really like atmospheric black metal but not a lot of other black metal stuff. So I won't vote.
In that case, man is only air as well.

This is difficult to choose one. Five years ago I would have said hands down progressive metal, but honestly, the genre has become stagnant. Hell it was stagnent 10 years ago. I still tend to prefer progressive leaning stuff. I picked other because I would have to say Grindcore and grindcore varients are my favorites. I know Grindcore in many ways is an evolution of punk and hardcore, but these days it's just as metal as anything. I also love black metal, was tempted to choose that. Bands are still finding new and interesting ways to make evil noises and I feel the scene is still going strong.

While I love many of the genres on here, my favorite metal subgenre overall is Prog definitely. Just take a look at my MS album collection.
