It's obvious in this web page we are brought toghether by one music genre, but what about the rest?
I wanted to know which are your other favorite musical genres out side metal (if you have any), and if you may want to comment why.
I didn't create a poll so it could be more open, besides I wouldn't be able to fill all the possible genres, so...
Ok, so, just feel free to discuss this and tell what you think

I listen to every type of music on the face of the earth.

So it's really hard to decide what my favourite outside of metal/rock is. Maybe electronica? Jazz? Blues?

I have no idea.

I like goth rock, psychedelic rock and I have a thing for New Age music otherwise I like the odd occasional song from different genres but I wouldn't consider myself a fan of those genres.

I love so many genres, but if I really had to choose specific genres, it would be Jazz, Classical, Hip-Hop, Pop Music (A la The Beatles), and Alternative/Indie in all of its myriad forms.

I'm from a black neighbourhood, this neighbourhood, and I've not seen a white boy with a guitar on a music poster here in my lifetime.
However, the local music scene is rocking and I grew up here.
My station, my roads, my everything, here; am like 'Hello?'

In 2015, I saw them filming this as I stepped out of the train station walking home fresh from work in my construction gear, I was on the phone to a good friend I knew from Soho at the time, and I said 'I don't know who they are, but look at their chains/bling'..
Turns out it was promoting Straight Outta Compton (2015) that movie there;

Hip-hop, all the way. In fact, that's what I've been listening to for many months now while metal is on pause. I'm trying to get deeper into hip-hop, just like how it happened with metal a few years ago.

PS: You have some cool hip-hop to share? I'm all ears.

Synthwave from France

My favorite genre outside metal is dark folk, but in fact this style derives from black metal and post-punk.
Some instrumental dark folk music is really very similar to black metal rhythms and emotions.

All kind of EDM or even all kinds of electronic music in general. Daft Punk will always be a top 10 of all time band for me for example.
I am not nor have I ever been a musician or a member of a one-man band, especially a band that has a name that starts with "D".

Modern Classical, Post-Punk, Progressive Rock/Electronics, Dark Ambient, Experimental Hip Hop.. anything if music it's close enough with dense atmosphere, I'd love to listen to it.

I love soul music, and power ballads, i know that it's really different from metal, but sometimes it releases something in me, kinda strange though

I've actually been into a lot of Wave stuff since Darkwave can get pretty Metal and some Metal bands I dig implement Wave in their music (I.E. Abstract Void)

Red Hot Chili Peppers - are my favorite.

I don't think "wave" means much as such - it just indicates a movement of some sort (e.g. second wave of black metal). I didn't do any research, but I imagine it mostly comes from "New wave", which was at first mostly just a declaration of doing something different, and "No wave" as a deliberate reaction. I dunno, maybe Dark wave is from that same era, and clearly it has some post-punk roots, but I wouldn't exactly put Blondie, early Swans and Elend even into the same umbrella category. Random -wave microgenres, like vaporwave, don't seem to have any connection with New wave.
