Right. Let's see how diverse our tastes are, shall we?
I've a feeling quite a few(If not the vast majority of) people on this here forum at least likes Kamelot. That's a no-brainer.

I, if it wasn't obvious, am one of them. I just luffs my Kamelot.
I'm also weak for Turisas. Warlord is surprisingly gorgeous under all that fur and warpaint.
Last of all.... Seether. Yeah, yeah, I know. They were my favourite band for years before Kamelot, and I wouldn't be lying if I was to say they saved my poor, hormone-riddled teenage life more than once.

So.... how about you guys?
Go forth, my friends! Name your top bands!

I'm the only one who doesn't like Kamelot, I think :P

Outside of Metal, I'm a huge Mediaeval Baebes fan. I also love The Distillers. And Amanda Somerville.

My favourite Metal bands at the moment are Aina, Pythia and Epica. I've only ever missed one Pythia show *proud face* They've only had three

Other bands include Elis, Tarja, early Nightwish, Edenbridge, Within Temptation, After Forever, Orphanage, Therion, Moonspell, Tristania, and Marduk.

Artists of metal/rock with only a couple of songs I listen to:

And there's my detailed tastes.

@Dragon Goddess, I won't shoot you for listening to Shakira, but I will shout "Are you insane woman?!" at you for listening to Forever Slave. Wink

As for the music I listen to in very random order:

Kayak
Genesis
Peter Gabriel
Camel
Therapy?
Valkyre
After Forever
Autumn
Whispering Gallery (soon to be an ex-band, damnit!)
Iron Maiden
Sengir (already an ex-band)
Dreadlock Pussy (an ex-band, but most of the guys have other/new bands, so that kinda makes it okay)
Morning (new material kicks arse)
Crimson Falls
Yes
Viberider

My collection pretty much ranges from 10cc to ZZ Top, with loads of metal / (prog) rock. And in case I hadn't bragged about my CD collection yet: clickie

Haha I know I know. I only listen to one song by them and it's for personal reasons, just like many one-song bands I listen to. Nice that I'm not shot though :P

@ Em: I know, bad niece =(

My all-time favourite band is ofc Kamelot, there's no doubt about it. I also listen to Porcupine Tree, Dream Theater, Rammstein, Blackfield, Epica, ZZ Top, Muse, King Crimson, L'Arc~en~Ciel, Psycho le Cému, The Cranberries, Sonata Arctica and The Ark. I'm trying hard not to get stuck in just one genre, but it seems that power/progressive metal has taken my soul. Well, nothing to complain. I'm not much into finnish bands, at least last year I wasn't. But now I've found a couple of great bands, I just don't know have you ever heard of 'em. :----D But no can do, here they come: CMX, I Was a Teenage Satan Worshipper, Ultra Bra, Damn Seagulls, Smokesuit and Mokoma. Smokesuit is actually founded in my home town and I keep seeing the band members all the time. 8D

Well.... not easy question.

There are to special favourite bands of mine (special-fav. is a bit more for me than just fav. band) These two are Marilyn Manson and Kamelot. Well, Manson is really special, I was listening to him a lot when I had some really bad and depressing period in my life. And his music helped a lot. Beside that I admire his work and art ect. :P
Kamelot was basically the background music of my life in the past 3-4 years. I listened to Kamelot a lot when I was learning lol I donno why it helped. But they became my special favourite since I have seen them live.

Still staying by bands which I liek for some reason more than simply favourite bands.... Epica Smile Probably because of the experience I had in Miskolc, and that in person they are really nice people hug

And here is a place left out for SoS grin Because it is a really good feeling and wonderfull experience to see a band grow from the start. And I really like the semples on the myspace, so I think I will love the whole CD too. congrats

So simply fav. bands are:

Nightwish (with Tarja)
HammerFall
Within Temptation
Edguy
Sonata Arctica
Within Temptation

Non-metal bands-singers: like Whitney Houston, Elvis, Queen, Roxette... lots of lots of song from famous bands...I listen usually to radio stations where they have older songs from the 70s, 80s, early 90s..

And I used to listen to:
Evanescence
HIM
some years ago and I liked them...I somehow dont lsiten to it now...

Bands I am learning about now are:
Avantasia
Conception
Amanada Somerville
Rock Ignition
