**** , I forgot to mention it.....as a matter of fact, I did! Their stuff is REALLY sweet. Great melodic sound, great lyrics.

I like just about everything, to be honest, but I've been on a huge classic-rock and metal kick lately. So, yeah, go ahead and throw some at me :)

Yeah, M&S and CoB are pretty good stuff. I'm liking what I'm hearing from Heaven Shall Burn and Caliban, too.

I can see why metalcore and deathcore get such a bad rap - you come across a lot of scene kids who think listening to it makes them "edgy" - but there are plenty of worthwhile bands in those genres, too (and you've introduced me to a good few of them). It never pays to dismiss a whole genre out of hand because of a few annoying fans.

Yeah.....now that I think of it, BDM and Neaera (being melodic death) don't really count - but I've liked what I've heard from Whitechapel, HSB, and Caliban, all by your recommendations.

On that note, if you want to hear another really good band, look up Sikth. I don't know what the hell they're classified as - I've heard everything thrown around from prog-metal to mathcore to avant-garde metal - but I *love* their stuff. "Such the Fool" and "Scent of the Obscene" are good places to start.

I've never really listened to any folk metal, but I love folk music and I love metal, so I'd imagine I'd like it a lot.

As for BMTH........I'm not too crazy about them myself, but I don't dislike them to the point where I'd knock a friend for liking them. Frankly, it bothers me to see people dogging on bands, period - a lot of people don't realize how much hard work and skill it takes to play in one, and come out with anything close to a consistent style.

Listening to it right now, it's awesome :D

I looked up one old song and one new from Arsonists and they were both good, but I've gotta say, they attract a lot of hipsters in the comments sections. " **** their new stuff, it's so mainstream!" ...who gives a **** ?! Good music is good music.....bughhhhh. Expect me to *unload* on the hipster movement in my new DSOT.

All I really meant by "good music is good music" was, enjoy the music for its own sake. Not because it's "mainstream" or "underground" or whatever stupid-ass meaningless thing someone uses to measure the "coolness" of it.

It probably helps in my case that I like and appreciate pretty much every genre of music to some degree - I don't know the feeling of being turned off by a genre itself. Most music is "good music" to me :)

Holy **** , I just realized how long we've been at it.....I really need to get to bed :S Was great talking to you, though. I hope you can get your IM working right, we can do it again sometime.

One more thing before I go.....have you looked up Sikth yet?
