Just thought I'd throw this out there (in the jazz section to minimize the chances of my being decapitated
) but does anyone here listen to metal on a subordinated level compared to other genres?
Don't get me wrong, I know this is sevenstring.org (and as such heavier genres will likely prevail), but sometimes I feel like a minority in that metal is not my primary genre.
I'm mostly a jazz, classical and fusion guy, but beyond that I like some progressive rock. I enjoy Periphery, AAL and Sky Eats Airplane just like everyone else here, but I feel (especially with SEA and other bands that heavily utilize screaming and the like) that there's a point where I find it abrasive and not pleasing to listen to.
Don't want to open up a can of worms here, just want to see if there's someone here who would rather turn on "Kind Of Blue" over "Fistful Of Metal" or the like.
