other metal obviously; mostly black, but some other shit.
i've been getting into some good experimental rap shit lately; check out MF DOOM for pure genius or deltron3030.
other than that, some good trip-hop is always good, industrial and for some reason soundtracks that are really good such as the fountain or koyaanisqatsi
I listen to lots of stuff other than metal. Tori Amos, Johnny Cash, David Allen Coe, The Ramones, Neil Diamond (yes I like his songs, and I'm not even gay), Elvis Presley, Tina Turner, The Commodores and Lional Richie ("Hello" is one of my favorite songs ever), Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder (back in the day black folks were actually talented it seems, there are tons of black artists from the early 80's on down I totally dig. Most nowadays that aint rap or hip hop suck as bad as rap and hip hop, I don't like modern R&B but do like the oldies), The Police, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, hell my list can go on and on so I will stop here.
God, my taste is ridiculously eclectic, I like allsorts: Cradle and Dimmu, Avenged Sevenfold, Pantera, Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage and Metallica. Then theres rock stuff like GNR, Queen, Finger Eleven, Hanoi Rocks, Motley Crue etc. Then I like a lot of old gothic stuff Like Nephilim, Sisters of Mercy, The Cure and The Damned. Punk such as Misfits, clash, NOFX, Transplants. I also like a bit of country like Cowboy Troy and Johnny Cash, Industrial stuff like Dope, Manson, Rob Zombie and Mortiis and even a bit of rap such as Dr. Dre, ODB and Ice Cube.
The only music I really don't like is emo shit like My chemical wankers and Panic at the Twat-fest.
by the way, anyone who likes groove orientated metal, check out my band
Metal: Sins Of Thy Beloved, Mayhem, Arcturus, Ulver, Emperor, Burzum, Old Nightwish, Immortal, Hecate Enthroned, Sepultura, Dismal Euphony, Borknagar, Koventant, Dimmu Borgir, Mysticum. And random goth bands. I listen all kind music like The Ramones. But mostly i listen metal music.
