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.

To be honest, my favorite genre changes every couple months or so. Thrash probably had the longest spell with me though, so I'll pick Thrash.

Hmm, I chose progressive then. I'd probably go for death (OSDM) or thrash (Morbid Saint, Coroner, Demolition Hammer, Dark Angel) if I could vote again now.

That's a really tough question. I love black, death, doom, stoner/sludge but some of my favorite music of all time is from the Nowregian black metal scene of the early-to-mid 1990's, so I guess black.

But I'd have to rank them:
1.1 Black
1.2 Stoner/Sludge
1.3 Death
1.4 Doom

I chose Folk, followed up by Black (but not the ultra raw black metal). Or just mix the two for the perfect combo . But overall my favorite changes depending on my mood.

I still stand by this, though my tastes nowadays are very varied, I will say the progressive death moniker is still the flag I most truly would stand beside.

...Well fuck.

I LOVE the shit out of death, thrash, doom, and sludge/stoner equally. Hell, I'm playing with both a tech-death guitarist and a stoner metal band at the moment...but if I had to choose, I'd probably say thrash. It's what got me into other metal - not counting my shitty nu-metal phase - plus it was a thrash show that made me want to be a musician, feel what a real goddamn pit was like, and see that there's more to the genre than the Big 4 (if you're curious, the show was headlined by DRI).

I almost want to change my answer to this looking back. Whenever I did this it was unquestionably death metal, but since then thrash has overtaken it.
