If you're interested and some of my rec's go well, then I might eventually want to try to recommend stuff which may be mildly testing. They would have some qualities which I assume that you may dislike, but would also hopefully have aspects which you could enjoy and would then help overcome any distaste you might have for it.
I don't have a distaste persay, I'm just more picky with Metal than I am with other genres. I love me some Tool, A7x, Coheed, and Killswitch Engage

Hi, sorry I took so long, I unexpectedly had gotten quite busy today.

I guess by distaste I had meant something like maybe about you not liking harsh death/black metal vocals, or other more commonly disliked more abrasive things in some parts of the whole genre or something. If it's difficult for you to pinpoint any specific things which you would like to avoid, that's alright, so I'll try to work on deciding what to recommend based on what you've said you liked instead.

It looks like you like some progressive like stuff with Tool and Coheed, and alternative metal/metalcore or kinda heavy metal type stuff with the other two. So, while I'm unsure if these are very close to what you may be looking for, how are these?

I think my major beef with metal is that there is a tendency for the distortion and speed to kind of mask the actual music itself. Most Metal artists are incredibly talented at writing, and I LOVE when metal bands play an acoustic show because it's usually amazing.

Those songs were pretty good though.

Sounds like you want some sludge and doom (still distorted though)






And some folk metal for the acoustic element

^^Those are solid. I feel like I would enjoy them more if I was in a different mood, but solid.

Killswitch Engage? Must... educate you... ON BETTER METALCORE! (I do like KE, though, but there are much better bands).











I'm gonna throw a grindcore track at you, just to show that excess speed can be musical in a way that any music slower can't be. You probably won't like it, but it's only a minute long, so don't be a wuss.

And yes, "Asuka" is about that Asuka. The band are fans of the show and this is not the only Eva-related song they have. Just to wet your appetite a tiny bit.

Not that I don't think it's musical, but that I don't hear it as clear. So it messes with how I receive the music.

I liked the first one you posted. I didn't like the last one, but... I mean Asuka gives it an auto-win.

Grindcore is a genre that might take a while to crack. I've been listening to metal since I was 13, and I'm 29 now, and I only just cracked the genre last year. If you can get used to it then it'll become one of your new fav forms of music. Then comes powerviolence...

Lol I have transitioned from every genre there is since I was 13 (back then it was classic rock). My Metal days were in the height of City of Evil's success so a lot of the metal I dig is that style. I never got into anything heavier, it just didn't whet my appetite.

Try some stoner/sludge/doom-style metal.
