Just found this thread.... nice to see there are so many metal/rock fans at XS
I'm into pretty much all rock/metal from past to present. Love classic rock from the 70's and also the really (really!) cheesy 80's/90's metal.
A few favorites include...
Black Sabbath (no surprise there eh?)
Dream Evil (awesome Swedish metal band!)
Paul Gilbert/Racer x/Mr Big
And the list could go on and on and on....
Been getting into some extremely cheesy euro metal lately too
. I can usually be found stumbling around drunk at the various big euro metal festivals during the summer months
