yeah how is heavy metal a sub-genre of heavy metal? but you got the /NWOBHM so whatever.
but you gotta have some glam/hair metal. even if it is really lite.
so i choose death metal since you didnt have glam metal...

Yeah I like glam metal too. Even though it tends to be looked down upon the most out of all the genres of metal.

Its not, its a sub-genre of metal. Ironically NWOBHM isn't a genre as much as a term to describe certain bands from an era who pretty much either played heavy metal or traditional doom in retrospect. What defines "Heavy metal" and "traditional doom" didn't really come about until later but there are obvious differences between bands like Witchfinder General, Pentagram, and Black Sabbath who played heavier slower pieces and Iron Maiden and Judas Priest who played more technical in your face music. The styles the two different breeds of metal would later influence would determine what was what.

Death, followed by Thrash.

I do tend to listen to a lot of Doom and Goth though. The atmosphere the music has just draws me in I think.

Prog-metal, in case you couldn't tell.

I like bands that combine thrash/death/progressive (Death, Sepultura, Symphony X, Mastodon, Opeth). Metalcore is starting to really bug the crap out of me, because bands using the "emo chorus/scream verse" technique are quickly becoming very predictable.

Check out Ghoul, if only for their cover of What a Wonderful World.
