And what bands/genres do you like?
I'm really into the folk/pagan/Viking metal...bands like Eluveitie, Ensiferum, Arkona, Finntroll to name some more well known ones..
I also like power metal (Including the nerdy bands like Rhapsody <3) and some death metal...
I Haven't explored black metal so much but I'm interested in trying it if you have any good bands to start with d:

Also, there's this guy called Jeph Jacques, he mainly writes a webcomic, but he started this insane one-person virtual band called Deathmole, and it's pretty good.
