    Dude... we get it. You like Nightwish. Awesome.

    Anyway... to answer the pertinent question of this thread:
    Black Metal. Its got speed and intensity and aggression like Thrash and Death but its got atmosphere and beauty in its ugliness.
    Thrash is a very close second, followed by old school death and then traditional heavy metal.

    Voted black metal.

    Also I love non-extreme metal (doom, some tradional, etc) and Nightwish is trash. Sorry.

    I chose Progressive Metal basically because adding/latching on Progressive to any sub-genre of metal (e.g. Progressive Black, Progressive Thrash) is for me pretty much always a good thing. There are plenty of times I don't want to listen to straight-up prog., but almost anything is better when it has at least some progressive elements.

    Old-school death metal is #1 for sure. Technical death is also great.

    Due to the lack of good bands/albums in the power metal genre, I don't necessarily listen to much of that anymore. Thrash is another favorite of mine, as well as stoner/doom metal.

    I listened to EW's "Come My Fanatics..." album baked off of my ass and it literally seemed like the album stretched on for an eternity, which wasn't a bad thing.
