Diggin' your taste. Except for the IDM. :(
I never really liked any of that sort of thing until I heard Squarepusher. I was smitten. ^-^ He's all kinds of awesome.

I like:
Techno (D&B + Trance + Hardcore), Metal, Hip-hop, Punk, Experimental, Indie, Jazz, Orchestral (sin vocals), and just about everything else. I really hate the definition of genres. It's all just music to me.

You've got pretty good taste in hip hop Xion. A few other groups that you might dig are:
Eyedea
Food for Animals
Busdriver
Eligh
The Grouch
Immortal Technique
Pharaohe Monch

Of course it's highly possible that you may have heard of most of them. I tried leaving out some of the more obvious like; blackalicious, hieroglyphics, aesop rock, a tribe called quest, etc...


I mostly listen to techno/electronica (Jungle, Hardcore, Breakcore, Breaks, House, DnB, Dubstep and Techno), hip hop, and punk. Although, I listen to many more genres than those.

It's kind of pointless to list off the techno DJs I listen to, because about 95% of them don't actually have cds produced.

As far as punk goes: (in no particular order)
Toxic Narcotic
Anal Cunt
Charles Bronson
Against Me
Aus Rotten
Crass
Leftover Crack
Social Unrest
Fuck I'm Dead

Favourite bands:
Cold
Nickelback
Breaking Benjamin
A perfect circle
Anyone into metal music should totally take a look at these ;D
When there is no more of art to discover, you know you're dead. And if you aren't, what the hell do you live for?

Can't say that I know the other bands, but Nickelback never seemed very metal to me...

Weezer, Ween, The Decemberists, Architecture in Helsinki, the Pixies, Björk, They Might Be Giants, Lemon Demon, Punch Brothers, Belle & Sebastian, Barenaked Ladies, Ben Folds, The Microphones, The Rentals, and numerous others.
The Barenaked Ladies don't get half of the credit they deserve. Nice choice.

Cow is trying to say that non of those band are actually metal. Cold comes near metal but is more hard rock.
And Breaking Benjamin, Perfect Circle and Nickelback are rock, hard rock at most.

Cool. Now check out Sieges Even - Lifecycle, Psychotic Waltz - A Social Grace, Fates Warning - Perfect Symmetry  and Spiral Architect - A Sceptic's Universe

The bands mentioned above on Elwin's post might be some variation of 'metal' perhaps, but they're certainly not Heavy Metal and should be avoided by people that hold more than a cursory interest in that particular form. I'll try not to go overboard with the Heavy Metal Nerd Rage, but just saying...
