Just explain why and maybe give some examples of the bands you like.Discussion is welcomed.
And a lot more...
It's my favorite genre because of the aggression, speed, harsh comprehensive vocals, and the riffs/melodies.
Overall, black metal is my favourite sub-genre of metal.
However, bands who incorporate synth/keyboards, atmospheric, and gothic elements (or even classical/symphonic elements) would better represent my favourite style of metal. Early Cradle of Filth, early Theatres des Vampires, Bishop of Hexen would be prime examples.
Not completely sure, but I would say heavy metal and power metal possibly.
You get it.
I like Search Button metal.
Black metal probably - Examples: (early) Aeternus, (early) Nokturnal Mortum, Mystic Forest, Taake, Blut Aus Nord, Deathspell Omega
It's my favorite 'cause there's a lot of variety to be found in the genre and also it's a genre that conveyes raw emotion like no other.
Brutal Bluegrass Metal
I'm all over the place and have no distinct favorite genre. The one that's closest to me though is Thrash, the first subgenre I listened to.
Gruesome Stuff Relish
Edit: Forgot to add why. I find death metal to captivate that "grave-like" essence while still maintaining a catchy rythmic structure in the songwriting department. Unlike black metal for the most part, it doesn't seem to rely purely on atmosphere though it is usually incorporated (at least in good death metal).
Granted, this isn't one of the major genres of music. Generally, larger genres can be more specified by adding the term "symphonic." But I really think that Symphonic Metal is the best way to describe what I usually enjoy.
A few examples from each genre:
Bishop of Hexen
Don't have a favorite genre. It's all about how good the band is, and that's not limited to any set of genres.
My favorite genres tend to be ones which transport my imagination to realms of spiritual refreshment.
So you love Brutal Death?
Well i got 2:

However every other genre is tied for 2nd such as Thrash, Folk, Viking, Heavy, Progressive, Neo-Classical, and Speed.
That's hard to answer.
My favorite bands come from several different sub genres.
I'm all over the board. I guess if I absolutely had to make a choice, Power Metal would be it followed by Doom.
I wouldn't say I have a favorite genre, or bad for that matter, but I find myself listening to black and death metal the most.
black metal and every style that goes with it.
I used to hate the stuff, now I freakin love it.
If it's not power metal or some form of gothic metal, I'll listen to it.
