Benediction by Sonorant with a very metal video to watch while it plays.



my favorite subgenre is pagan folk metal... melodies and instruments and a more tribal vocal sound I just can't hear anywhere else,

Folk metal is the best!!

Yep.

this is a one-man project by myself...i've been playing guitar for around 5 years now and i have an appreciation for all styles of music, though i prefer to focus on heavy metal and its multitude of sub-genres...when you listen to my songs, you can expect to hear lots of layering and melodicism in addition to heaviness...i also believe in free music, so go ahead and take all of mine that you want and enjoy it...just let me know if you're going to use it for something

I went through 8 years in engineering school, and its hillarious anytime someone expresses amazement that engineers love metal.  Like 10% of all the engineers I know love metal or are in metal bands

That figure seems low (I almost made a joke about engineering and metal (the alloy) but decided against it).
What most people who AREN'T metal fans don't realize is that most metal fans are huge nerds.
Also since I can't find any figures(*) to support this claim, have this distracting awesome video instead:




* I do however defy you to find a genre of music with more references to sci/fi and fantasy

I dislike anything with 'core' in the title.
I'm not even sure what it means exactly, but it's probably not uncanny -- some people will hate all metals (black, death, heavy, industrial), or all steps (dub, chill, funk, etc.), the suffix obviously conveys something I'm not musically knowledgable enough to know how to describe as the reason why it is that I hate 'core' bands who otherwise resemble non-core bands

I'm pretty sure it's memetic mutation of the term "Hardcore"

probably. but I have no idea what that sounds like, never mind what's prototypical(?) of it.

You're not missing much.
It's basically noise.

I'm a big Dream Theatre fan.  Live the music is clearly metal, but the levels of their recorded music make it sound more arena rock.  I've found that group like that are good "gateway" metal bands for the uninitiated.

I'd arguably call them Prog. Rock more than Metal.
Also - while I manage to enjoy their music, I don't find it as sophisticated or musically diverse as other bands in their general genre such as Porcupine Tree and Haken.

Will you guys be my new friends?
I LOVE DT, P-tree, and Haken!
Yeah, DT is more prog than metal.  Unreal talent though.
I've been more of a prog guy than metal guy for the last 10 years or so.
I do still rock Anthrax - Sound of White Noise from time to time at work, and recently relistened to Type O Negative - Bloody Kisses.  Those guys crack me up!
