Why have I not posed in here yet? Actually, on second thought, I think I may have made a different metal thread a while ago.

Anyways, I don't always listen to it, but there are quite a few metal bands that I like to listen to. Iron Maiden and Metallica (yeah, I know, it's Metallica) are at the top.

I used to quite like The Scorpions.

I used to quite like The Scorpions , TOO

My trouble is I never stopped quite liking The Scorpions

Me & my girl, Jeri are very keyed up for they are coming to AZ in July ;D
We might haul ass from LasVegas after the RUSH show in Aug ( Rush not in AZ this tour ! ) & Go to Colorado
And see Both RUSH ( Aug 17 ) & Scorpions ( Aug 16th ) AGAIN !

Last night I picked Jeri up for a night out & she had purchaced the new Scorpions - Sting in the Tail
As we drove to our various destinations we got to listen to the new album
on my upgraded factory Infinity subwoofer stereo in my new Soul
Sound's like vintage Scorpions, Very basic, great vocals
We spent 30 minutes parked in her driveway  ;)
while we listened to various tracks again & talked about our summer Rock Road Trip ( AZ - NV - CO )

BTW - Isn't Bon Jovi Country Act now ?
Like Kid Rock, Kid Rock is the "headliner" @ "Country Thunder" here in Phx next week, he, Kid, even has "Rock" in his name ???

Don't see AC/DC - Dio - Scorpions - going "country"
Wow! I finnally met Scorpions & U2 fans  ;D I love them both, just my two favourite bands ::)

I've not seen any reaction to this at all but I quite like it for what it's worth.

Lars is seriously going for that Mullen mullet, and he's bald! Shave it off man.

Follow this link to hear the new Mastodon song, "High Road":   You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Far and away their poppiest song ever (of course, that's a relative term), and that's not a bad thing at all in this case. What a chorus!

I'm not a big fan of metal but have seen mastodon a couple of times and they're just incredible. Real quality musicians and so damn tight together.

I'm not much into the intended genre discussed, but when I do, it is probably more on the pop side. 

Bands I've liked at different times have been:

Tool
Porcupine Tree (it's stretching it, but they had a few hard albums)
Rage Against the Machine
early Korn albums.
Metallica
Pantera
Scorpions

Outside of Porcupine Tree and Korn, I couldn't even tell you which albums I liked from the other bands, I just remember enjoying them when my old roommate would listen to them.  Porcupine Tree is the only band listed that I own all their albums, but then again, few of their albums really fit the genre.

I used to be a metalhead in my early teens, now I rarely listen to anything like that, apart from Tool which are one of my favourite bands. I still enjoy some "Nu Metal" bands every once in a while.

Still a guilty pleasure of mine even though I have somewhat outgrown the genre.

My favorites are:
Black Sabbath (w/ Ozzy)
Van Halen (w/ Dave)
AC/DC
Ozzy Osbourne (w/ Randy)
Judas Priest ('Sad Wings of Destiny' to 'Screaming For Vengeance')
Iron Maiden
Rage Against the Machine
Thin Lizzy (w/ Phil)
'Ace of Spades' by Motherhead
