Yeah, i used to listen to metal only but for like a year now, my music taste has expanded a lot. i really enjoy listening to all different types of rap, from mumbling, trapping and actually saying some lyrical stuff. I can relate to you about being "freer". I wrote this on my phone so it might be a bit messy lUl
Congratz you stopped being a emo! Welcome to normal world boy
IT was the same for me but with rap, now i like metal and punk rock and pop instead
You got brainwashed. Rip fellow metalhead
Edit: As a teenager i wouldn't listen to anything that i felt it meant something, (rock, soul, blues, metal). I would listen to rap and pop shit.
At about 16 i started listenning to rock and it just kept upgrading from there, opening my eyes to what real music is about. Meaning, Harmonics, Melodys, Rhythm. The lyrics are super important to me and most of pop and "trap" stuff is just straight up sexual.
keep listening to iron maiden
I was the same way with metal, the only difference is I still listen to it from time to time. I try to listen to different genres of music at different times (metal, grunge, rap, pop etc) to make sure my taste doesn’t get stale
good don't listen to that. i personally listen to wood or grass
You are a traitor, dont ever call youself a metal fan, poser.
Im a diehard metal fan but sometimes i get me listening to other genres, its normal, but i would never abandon my thrash/speed/power musics
Also i never went to a concert, it doesnt matter
Sorry to be rude
i listen to anything that sounds decent don't care about the genre
There's no bad music genre. Each one has its quality and garbage. The worst people are the "I listen to everything but rap and country" people, though. Good music comes from a powerful lyrical message or a demonstration of superior talent, and the real gems include both.
I am actually very similar my friend. I was big in to metal back in the day, still listen to it of course. But I find that im pulled towards EDM music, Hip Hop, and more mellow moods as I age. I Still rage to Fear Factory, Pantera, Dream Theater etc. But Im listening to Coast Modern 'Guru' right now and I dig it. :)
Kinda, I liked metal cuz it had much energy like other genres sounded so powerless but nowadays it is not same for me anymore, I just listen a lot of different kinds of music now.
If you had evolved into some prog, classical, blues, jazz Id say nothing. But you actually downgraded to synthetic trash party music. But to each its own I guess as long as it gets you pussy.
Holy shit dude, i had a very similar story to yours, i can't believe someone just like me exists!
When I was a teenager I only listened to metal
From Iron Maiden over Nightwish to Heaven Shall Burn, I liked a lot of different metal genres
I was on many festivals and concerts, have several autographs and stuff
I was a really annoying teen that told everyone who liked other music like pop or hip hop that they don't have any taste and they only listen to bad music where no talent is needed
and now I find myself rarely listening to metal anymore. I mostly listen to different electronic genres and rap and at the moment I enjoy it much more
actually I feel much freer now. Back then I skipped every song that wasn't , metal even if deep down I would maybe enjoy it. Now I just listen to what I want without any limitations. no matter how trash a song might be, as long as I enjoy it it doesn't matter.
I'm also much more tolerant now, I don't judge people for their musical taste and try out a lot of new stuff if someone shows it to me.
some of my old friends say I lost my musical identity, but actually I think I evolved.
does anyone have similar experience? or did you stay with the music you liked as a teen?
i listen to old school hip hop, reggae, metal and rock
Cant do such things i need instruments in my music
It comes with age and in my case I don't like to listen the same stuff over and over again, so I've been always trying to explore and find new stuff. Eventually you'll find some good stuff beyond metal and go that way (I think most people move away from metal at some point).
I started with goth/symphonic metal when I was 13-14, then industrial and even black metal, slowly started to get into progressive stuff and couldn't stand the loud noise and screams any longer.
Now I listen to jazz, house and Jamiroquai is the best thing ever to me. People change over time and that's fine, we grow up and it's hard to be on the "metal mood" as an adult. But also some people just got the "metal" on their blood, I don't think my wife will ever stop to listen to metal. She loves it and I'm sure I will listen to her and my daughter singing a Tarja song at some point, it is what it is and people who have the gift of truly enjoying music shouldn't bother with whatever somebody else is listening.
I used to not listen to music and hated metal with a passion but then i started watching a rs streamer (thoboying) who always played metal and I fell in love it. The next two years I only listened to metal/punk and then I kinda switched to more chill rock music and got away from metal other than a couple songs for a year, no I listen to alternative rock, Spanish rock, reggaeton, and XXXtentacion.
i find it boring to listen only 1 genre so its better to listen to other genre
IN METALL WE TRUST
exactly the same thing happened to me
AHAHAHA U DON'T EVOLVE U ARE DEGRADATED, SO NOW U CAN LISTEN RAP AHAHAH
I don't really understand why people like when someone shitting in their ears (metall)
ITT hiphop fangeys stroking each other's cocks lmaoooo.
nah my dad tought me to listen to all different types of music from opera to deathmetal to old school hip hop
Sabaton is love, Sabaton is life
Metal is gold rock is silver pop is wood
I've always listened to everything, every genre has good music
