    I'm talking about the kiddies and hipsters who see music as simply a two dimensional sound, such as you. People who only listen to metal because they think it "kicks ass" or some stupid childish bullshit like that.

    Im 21 years old. I started listening to metal when I was 10. I assure I am no hipster. You on the other hand, last time I checked were 16 years old. Do you like wearing your cute band shirts around highschool?

    Well I can't say they're not allowed to but they're wrong in doing so.

    Well for someone who's been listening for such a long time you seem to have avoided the point for quite a while now. Or maybe you just don't like good metal. And it's not quantity of time you've been listening to the music that counts. It's the quality of your passion. Being smart for a minute is better than being stupid for a lifetime.

    My passion is sturdy, wears well and comes with a lifetime guarantee against breakage or faulty craftsmanship.

    93-2000. Metal stopped being so limited by genres.

    80's had the best thrash, but the 90's all around is my favorite. 2000-2005 also was remarkable.

    1992 - 1997.

    It's in this period that bands that pushed the metal boundaries blossomed. Opeth, Katatonia, Aeternus, Dissection, Windir, Sacramentum, My Dying Bride, Dawn, and countless others.

    I still haven't really listened to enough 'modern' metal that isn't shit to really be able to rate the late 90s or 00s.

    I have different eras for different genres of metal. 1987-1994 for Death Metal, and 1991-Now for Black Metal, as the genre keeps evolving and improving as it ages, while the old guard (for the most part), stands strong.

    I can't go back and say "I wish i could been alive back then to see the blah blah blah blah" because i think about the new albums and bands that I would be missing. But i will say that the 90s were very fruitful for death metal, as is the present, with the largely expanding brutal/slam scene. THAT one grows by leaps and bounds and is just finding its niche.

    Mid to late 80s

    My RYM says My highest rated decade is the 1980s in terms of music and most of the highly rated albums are from the above period.

    I agree with Cythraul, the early 90s was a breaking point where (some) metal music started to evolve into a form of actual intellectual exhibition, as opposed to the 80s when most metal was made without much purpose other than to be an outlet for strong and raw emotions. Come to think of it, most of the 80s metal I listen to, such as Dio, Helloween etc, mostly serves as nostalgia for me. That is to say, If I hadn't started with those 80s bands in the mid 90s, I probably would not listen to 80s metal today.
    Regarding current metal, I'm pretty much without opinions. I have not bought a single album from 2010, because there is still so much older stuff with high 'status' I have not heard yet. I guess I will be getting around to 2010 in ten years or so. :)
