    Picking three is too difficult, right off the bad I'd say

    Doom Metal
    Black Metal
    Occult Rock

    But I listen to a lot of other stuff as well, and favorites vary from day to day.

    I have no effing idea. Most of the music I like falls into indie and experimental, but those terms are so broad that they don't have much meaning. I like Radiohead, Animal Collective, Mute Math... that kind of stuff.

    Classic Metal
    (Or whatever you'd call Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, and Ozzy's first two solo albums, if indeed you'd consider all those groups in the same sub-genre.)

    Spaghetti Western Music
    Strong melodies and epic scope. Love it.



    And um...Spanish Guitar Music. No...Instrumental Guitar Virtuoso Music. No...Mournful Celtic Music. No...Pink Floyd. Wait, that's a band, not a genre. Um...

    I have very eclectic music tastes and the traditional genres don't usually match up well for me. Although one exception would be Romantic Period Classical Music. Modest Mussorgsky, Charles-Valentin Alkan, and Rimsky-Korsakov are the ones that immediately jump to mind but there are plenty of others that I enjoy

    I am also a big fan of Film and Game Music. This really isn't a genre in its own right, but I am a very visual person and I greatly enjoy music that I have a visual connection to. I do tend to lean towards the Classical and Classical-esq music here, but these genres are by no means dominant.

    Foreign Music is another ambiguous category, I listen to a lot of foreign folk music but also more modern songs - some in genres I'd probably never listen to in English.

    Urfaust is the most catchy black metal band ever... it's friggin' bizarre! That guy's vocals are so weird though.

    I wouldn't really call Jex Thoth doom metal... When I think of doom metal I think of like Esoteric.

    Whoah with everybody and metal... hehehe...



    People say I have eclectic tastes in music and I do have a song or two from the most mainstream singers/bands to some of the obscure indie artists... But all in all, I find many of my songs are:

    Pop (you name the cheeziest/overplayed/one-hit-wonder artists from the '80s, '90s, and '00s, I probably have it and listens to it on my iPod--Milli Vanilli, Human Nature, El Debarge, Backstreet Boys, Michael Jackson, Kelly Clarkson, Fra Lippo Lippi, Roxette, Peter Cetera, Katie Perry, Lighthouse Family)

    R&B (the likes of John Legend, Ne-Yo, Boyz-II-Men, Lauryn Hill, Keith Sweat, Alicia Keys, Omarion, Usher, Shanice)

    Hip-Hop (Kanye West, Outkast, Nas, Kid Cudi, T.I., TuPac, Bone Thugs, Public Enemy, DMX, Ludacris, Coolio)

    Plus, being a Yoko Kanno fan, I have a humongous amount of soundtrack music... We're talking about 150+ songs from Yoko Kanno here...

    Doom is a pretty diverse genre I guess, it's all over the place if you compare a band like Warning for example with Pentagram or Witchfinder General, or something like Electric Wizard. It's all doom but each with their own distinct feel. Even a band like Blood Ceremony, I'd say, play a kind of doom metal. Then there are bands like Esoteric like you mentioned or even early Katatonia.

    Genre confusion aside, it's all good stuff. What would you call Jex Thoth? I think they are quite reminiscent of Black Sabbath at times, but then again, doom metal owes _everything_ to Black Sabbath.

    Electric Wizard is stoner metal. Early Katatonia was Death/Doom now they're Atmospheric/"Doom" Rock. Pentagram is/was proto-metal (as is/was Sabbath). So I guess your talking about Doom like Sabbath-esque stuff. I guess you could call it that... It's just not what I usually think of as Doom metal.

    Thought I'd hook y'all up to some of my favorite examples.

    Jazz - Maynard Ferguson: Give it One (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tL1Fj...eature=related)/
    Big Band - Gorden Goodwin's Big Phat Band: Backrow Politics (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dVCeiaxTZA)/
    Swing - Glenn Miller Orchestra: In the Mood (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1nqj74LHWo)

    The above are all really similar but are also really different.

    Classical - Samuel Barber: Adagio for Strings (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRMz8fKkG2g)

    Funk - P-Funk: Mothership Connection / Swing Down (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_ifm_Vg5uY)

    I'm pretty GENERIC in this:

    ROCK/METAL (From Bauhaus to Mayhem)
    HIP HOP (From GZA to Kanye West)
    ELECTRONIC (From Depeche Mode to Justice)

    But I'm not limited to these at all.. i tend to listen to as much genres as I can possible can

    I'm selective. Blackmetal is by far my favorite genre. But a lot of bands are shit. And even with bands that I like, I tend to only listen to one or two albums by them, and may even think that all their other albums are crap.

    Blackmetal
    -Somberlain and Storm of the LightsBane (Dissection)
    -Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk (Emperor)
    -Dionysos (Lux Occulta)
    -Nemesis Devina (Satyricon)
    -the original 1996 version of Stormblast (Dimmu Borgir)
    -Casus Luciferi (Watain)
    -On the Eve of the Grimly Inventive (Ebony Lake)
    -first three blackmetal albums by Darkthrone
    -the blackmetal albums by Burzum

    20th Century Russian Classical
    -Schnittke
    -Shostakovich
    -Stravinsky

    Traditional/Ethnic/Folk/whatever
    -from Scottish war drums to Balanese Gamelan to traditional Mongolian, Arab, African, etc....

    Aside from these old favorites I'm slowly getting into random bits of darker sounding electronic music these past few years that I happen to stumble across. Things like Black Sun Empire, The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation, Kubusschnitt. The later two discovered in DanielC's sketchbook. I have a hard time finding this sort of stuff though. And there are things that turn me off, like the beat/"drumming" in Black Sun Empire for example. Bleh. But the spacey sounds in combination with the "tribal" sounds and gamelan-ish sounds in their song "Arrakis" is pretty sweet. I wonder if anyone makes music that sounds entirely like the bits of chugging machinery sounds found in between songs on Ulver's "Nattens Madrigal"... If anyone has suggestions, lay em on me.
