You know very little about Gothic metal if those are your best examples. and how is Machine Head and Judas Priest even metioned together.

Because opinions are subjective, and those aren't my "best examples", those are examples from my playlist. I looked at your Gothic metal video list you posted and they sound more like nu-metal or black metal garbage than gothic metal. Nasty stuff.

Much rather listen to that "black garbage" as you oh so eloquently put it than half of the crapola you listed as the bands you listen to and didn't even get half the genres right on. No one that I have ever met would classify Shagrath and Dimmu Borgir anything other than black metal.

Metal band Baroness was in a very serious bus crash today. 2 people were seriously injured, although it is yet unclear if they were members of the band.

http://www.bbc.co.uk...merset-19267414

Two people on a tour bus used by the US band Baroness were badly injured when the vehicle fell 30ft (10m) from a viaduct near Bath.

Emergency services were called to Brassknocker Hill, in Monkton Combe, on the B3108 at its junction with the A36 Warminster Road at 11:30 BST.

Two of those on board suffered multiple fractures and had to be freed by firefighters. Seven had minor injuries.
All remaining dates of the band's European tour have been cancelled.

The group played at The Fleece in Bristol on Tuesday evening and had been due to appear in Southampton later.

A spokesman for the Southampton gig promoter said: "It is with great regret that we have to inform you that Baroness were involved in a very serious road accident earlier today and will not be able to perform at Talking Heads tonight.
"Our thoughts are with the band at this time and we wish them and their crew a speedy recovery."
Tim Bailey, from The Fleece in Bristol, said: "It's awful for anybody but just knowing the band from last night and all the crew and how lovely everyone was - it was a real shock and we just really hope they're OK."

Let's hope they all recover swiftly

Labels are labels, I don't really worry much about the technicalities of it nor do I see the point in arguing it, I'll let people who care excessively about that argue it. I was more responding to how condescending your tone was.

Nonetheless, I've seen Type O live, was a pretty good show. IIRC they were with Kamelot and I think Edguy.

If we're discussing gothic rock, I would have to say that if it wasn't for Joy Division, Bauhaus, Siouxsie and the Banshees, the Sisters of Mercy and The Cult, and to a lesser extent The Cure, there wouldn't have been any gothic rock. Depeche Mode and Type O are a continuation of it, but far from the pioneers of it.

Sisters of mercy foresure, and I say pioneers because so many followed after them. You can't say Type O negative didn't change gothic music less then joy division.

Anyway who cares

I voted good ol' fashioned metal but my tastes are broad, I guess.

Black Sabbath
Anvil (Canadian metal!)
Annihilator (more Canadian metal!!)
Judas Priest
Pentagram
Saint Vitus
Rainbow
Dio
Uriah Heep (The 2nd heaviest band in the 70's in my opinion)
Sleep
White Zombie
Rage Against the Machine (can't top Morello for weird ass solos)
Iron Maiden
Diamond Head
Saxon
Motörhead
Anthrax
Solo Ozzy (specifically his stuff with Randy Rhoads (Rhoads the only reason I started playing guitar in the first place))
Turisas
The Sword (I love their first album so much)
King Diamond (Them is awesome! GRANDMA WHAT WAS IT LIIIIIIIIIKE!!!!)

I really don't like bands with growling/screaming vocals. It's alright if used appropriately and sparingly, but I don't like the whole song being like that.

Metalheads unite!
Well I'm late to this thread, but it's nice to see other metal fans on the boards.
I like pretty much most of the genres in the wide spectrum of metal, from progressive/ tech stuff like Dream Theater and Protest the Hero to extreme bands (death, thrash, black, etc) such as Behemoth, Septic Flesh, Kreator, to power metal acts like Edguy or Stratovarius. I also like symphonic, progressive (my favorite genre), traditional metal heavy metal, and tons of others. If you name a band, odds are I probably have heard of them!

The Human Abstract play a similar genre. Their last album Digital Veil was spectacular.

call me old fashion... but I've never really been able to get into bands that "growl" or do mostly screaming. About the only exceptions is Fear Factory, Slayer, Testament and Pantera. I think that's why I get more into female fronted metal bands (Leaves' Eyes, Nightwish, Within Temptation, etc.) At least that's the "newer" stuff I listen to that is "metal." Otherwise it's mostly late 80s/early 90s metal (Faith No More, Anthrax, Megadeth, Metallica.. up till "Load".)

Best metal concert ever been to?

Mine is Rob Halford, Queensryche and Iron Maiden at "The Roy" (a smaller auditorium that holds only about 5,000 people) about 10 years ago (Maiden was touring in support of "Brave New World")
