    What kind of music are you into? What are you listening to? Favorite artist? Favorite album? Share below!

    I listen to a bit of everything, but tecently I've been listening to a lot of David Bowie and Bob Dylan. My favorite album would definitely be The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust. Every song is amazing, especially Starman.

    I mostly listen to Metal, specifically all sorts of Progressive and Experimental Death Metal, Avant Garde, that kinda stuff.
    Besides Metal I'm also very much into classical music, especially since I started playing cello.
    But honestly, I think I like stuff from every genre (except for maybe Free Jazz. Can't get into that stuff at all).

    Sweet. The only metal I really listen to is Deftones.

    My favourites are bands like Deathspell Omega, Ulcerate, Gorguts, PsyOpus, First Fragment, Spawn of Possession... I really like neoclassical influences.
    Never really got into Bowie, to be honest. I know a few songs, but for some reason I never really cared. Should fix that...

    Indeed you should. His albums from the 60's-80's like Let's Dance, Heroes, Ziggy Stardust, Diamond Dogs, etc. are all better, in my opinion. They're more rock-ish while is more recent stuff sounded more electronic.

    I'm into a mixture.
    I mostly listen to weird experimental music like Mr Bungle and Mars Volta, but I do enjoy Elliott Smith and Sufjan Stevens alot (I'm probably misspelling a tonne of stuff, I'm on my phone plus I've had no sleep).

    What I listen to depends on my mood.
    There are a couple of new bands which I think sound really interesting, like Die Antwoord and Grimes, but generally speaking I don't like what's on the radio nowadays.

    As a kid I obsessively listened to Michael Jackson, and weirdly enough obsessed about one particular album of Chris Rea
    I also absorbed a lot of what my parents listened to, meaning lots of Latin-American folk and protest music, on my dad's side, and "pub-rock" (Dire Straits and other rock-blues, as well as Guns n' Roses) on my mom's

    As a teen I became enfatuated with Marilyn Manson, which coincided with internet forums, and as such I have had years of presence on the on-and-off official Manson forums, which are by now, afaik, permanently off.
    Over time Manson came to bore me, and I searched on. During my Manson time I also listened to Cradle of Filth (in particular Cruelty and the Beast), Massice Attack (Mezzanine in particular) and Wu Tang Clan's Forever, a little all-over-the-place.
    You might also notice I am often about particular albums, rather than their respective bands.

    In the end, I don't even know what I prefer or don't prefer. I had a Radiohead period as well, and I dabbled some in I guess more "commercial" electronica, such as Plaid. I like when music has to "grow on you"

    I have found and enjoyed countless folk tunes, from all over the world, that I sadly rarely find out what are really called, since I pick them up from Youtube, and people suck at properly labelling their music. I am very strict about correct labelling, you should see my MP3 list (which is moderately short, compared to music fanatics, with only around 700 tracks or so - but each track VERY correctly labelled!)

    I have yet to truly find myself to be a real "fan" of any particular band or artist. Despite this I always considered myself highly musical.
