My musical tastes have been a gradual increase in musical intelligence.
I began my musical consciousness in the alternative rock scene of the mid 90s. As the uniqueness of that music died away to popular music blandness I found metal and Metallica. I enjoyed the Metallica, Pantera, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin etc. until I discovered Death/Black Metal in 2001. Since then I have delved deeper and deeper into the complexities and origionality of that subgenre and am now deeply into anti-melody like Dillinger Escape Plan that completely disregardes everything that a manstream person understands as 'music'.
In short, my 3 year long serious foray into the artistic beauty of music has been the single more interesting and enjoyable adventure I have taken in my life.
