I know there is a thread for heavy metal songs, but I want to know what are some of your favorite heavy metal bands and sub genres.

Me? For the most part I like the more "truer" side of metal even though I don't mind modern metalcore or nu metal. I just prefer sub genres like thrash metal or technical death metal or melodic power metal. Some of my favorite bands are:

Nile
Death
Metallica
Sepultura
Orphaned Land
Sleep
Mastodon
Black Sabbath
Galneryus
Boris
Iron Maiden

Also is anybody else excited about the Metallica and Lou Reed collab? I know I am.

I've been a metal fan for a long time, but for some reason or another I've gravitated to mostly listening to black metal these days; especially atmospheric BM. I do listen to other metal genres, but I'd say 90% black metal.

And Metallica + Lou Reed sounds lulzworthy.
