The older I get, the more I prefer the more underground and extreme metal genres, like war metal, powerviolence, blackened thrash, etc. I've grown pretty tired of the seemingly stagnant "sludge metal" scene that's been hanging out for the past few years. Still some great stuff there, but I'd rather that metal just got back to its roots and being fast, evil, and heavy.
