I've always been the intellectual type, and I guess I can be a snob about it from time to time. I hate catchy, groovy, rhythm-based music. I like progressive music, and lean for death metal and black metal. Anything in between is even better. But I do stray from my norm depending on my mood. I also work out, and black metal isn't the best for working out, so I grab some power metal. As for mood, I almost always want to feel somber, so I go for gloomy or depressive metal.
