I'll listen to (almost) anything, but my favourite music overall would have to be prog rock.

My faves:
Rush - Three guys in their mid-50's who are still, from a technical standpoint, some of the best musicians ever (even if Geddy Lee's voice has suffered a bit over the years). The drummer, Neil Peart, won several "best rock drummer" awards until they put him on the judging staff so that he couldn't run anymore. I'm going to one of their concerts in July.

Boston - Had the best vocalist in all history until he killed himself last year. R.I.P. Brad Delp. Apparently Boston recently decided that they needed two more vocalists in an attempt to make up for the loss.

Triumph - An 80's metal band. Not much to say about them, but this is an awesome song.

Kansas - My favourite American band. Sort of a happy medium between the previous three, but with more violin.

...And a very special one:
The Lunateers - Eleven close friends of mine who are semi-officially the best new band in Ontario.

That song won the contest for them.

I listen to all kinds of music. I get more into video game music, rock, and some Japanese songs I hear.
Video games: I like orchestrated stuff, the songs from ICO and Shadow of the Colossus especially.
Rock: I've recently got my hands on a lot of Coheed and Cambria stuff... I really like it. Other songs like Sweet Child of Mine, Beast and the Harlot, Stairway to Heavan.

Some specifics as of late:
Six Organs of Admittance, Destroyer, David Bowie, The Velvet Underground, random bouts of chiptune listenings, ambient stuffs to sooth the soul (Brian Eno, Robert Fripp, Brian Eno & Robert Fripp) or torment it (Lustmord, Unquiet Void, some Coil, etc).

Though, really. I like a lot of everything.

Helm: I know it's not exactly heavy, but do you have any suggestions for a fan of Agalloch?

I listen to a lot of indie rock, alternative, folk rock and some turntablism, electro and chiptune. Then there's always stuff that reminds me of a certain time, usually my childhood, that I can't pull myself away from.

Ladytron
Belle and Sebastian
Cadence Weapon
Pixies
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
Bob Dylan
Ramones
Creedence Clearwater Revival
Bomb the Music Industry!
Toadies
8 Bit Betty
Architecture in Helsinki
Commander Venus

If you like heavy metal i suggest you check out a band called Alestorm (formerly Battleheart).  They are a pirate metal band and pretty damn good.
