After discussion in the previous thread I decided against having a specific pick list of genres. It risked not covering certain niches and admittedly was getting too "autistic" the further it went (credit to Ozzman) Apologies for the wasted time to Baroque and the other folks who participated. We're going honor system on this one. If there's enough participation and aligning data maybe we can manipulate the data a little and correlate it after the fact. The goal here is to establish links or commonalities to encourage folks to check out genres they might otherwise not be inclined to; either due to perhaps a poor first impression, a lack of perceived commonality with what you currently enjoy, or complete ignorance it even existed! What to do: 1) In no particular order list your top 5 metal sub-genres. Be specific and don't just list "Death Metal" but rather OSDM, Tech Death, Melodeath, etc. In the spirit of the thread if you're concentrated in one main genre and need a tiebreaker try to err towards something a little different than the rest of your list. 2) To expand the scope and make things a little more fun, list your 3 favorite non-metal sub-genres. Again, be specific. "I like techno" helps no one! That's it! Any extra commentary is great too, but try to open your post with your 2 lists so if we later decide to play with the data its easier to gather from your posts. Thanks!
