Oh well, Gilmour is AMAZING !!  Even his performance on Macca's 'No More Lonely Nights' is choice. 
'On An Island' oozes splendour aroun every corner - David is right in his element for sure.

The reason for my dislike of Black Metal is because the bands they are a bit too Anti-Religious with their lyrics.

 

For Mathcore it's because The Vocals are WAY too loud and the Instrumentation is a bit sloppy IMHO.

 

For Grunge Rock it's because of the "I hate my parents, I hate the world" kind of attitude in the lyrics, Which I can't stand and I could never relate to the songs.

 

And for Post-Grunge although the Lyrics are better it's still mostly boring to my ears and too Mainstream.

 

 
I can't stand post-grunge's lyrics or chord structure (verse chorus, power chords for the whole song with maybe an intro riff), it's pretty much devolved into cock rock lyrics or the whining you described in grunge. Grunge's lyrics tend to have more of a 'word salad' style (nirvana, soundgarden) and more complex instrumentation make it better than post-grunge for me.Meh, I've been listening to black metal for like 7 years, and the anti-religious lyrics never got to me, but that's probably because I'm an athiest and i'm still not great and deciphering the shrieks. With most black metal bands (Except for certain members of the norweigan 2nd wave, e.g. mayhem, burzum) the imagery and lyrics are intentionally over the top and for show. The raw production and sometimes simple structure of the songs could get to some prog fans I suppose, though some bands like enslaved, deathspell omega, sigh and blut aus nord are quite proggy and have good production.For me I guess it would maybe be some of the more underground rap I tend to listen to like Immortal technique, deltron 3030 and MC chris.Also, prog fans hate metal? Weird, because I would think there would be a large ammount of crossover from both to each other. I mean, they're both genres that started from rock but have grown to something somewhat apart from it, both have an emphasis on virtuosity and riffwork, a penchant for unconventional song structures and lyrical content different from the popular norm. Now, do prog fans hate the more underground metal or just the more mainstream, poppier stuff like say, disturbed, korn, avenged sevenfold, asking alexandria? Cause I like prog (haven't dug hugely into it) and have listened to a massive ammount of metal, and I like them for a lot of the same reasons.



If a lot of prog fans supposedly hated metal, then this site(PA) would be in trouble.

Yes but's that's quite understandable. Wink
I understand why some Prog Fans don't like the AOR Era of Journey but I love it.
They are one of my favorite bands. I also love their Heavy Prog Era on their First Three Albums as well and some of the songs from "The Dream After Dream" Soundtrack. Haven't heard most of the New Songs yet though.
 
They're at least better than Most Mainstream Rock/Modern Rock Bands these days IMHO.

Early 80's Chicago - not much love for that era around here but there's a lot of really good material to be found on those few albums.

Here in the South of Texas, you cannot escape Tejano music. I've grown to like some of it, and in particular Los Garcia Brothers. Really.

I've enjoyed some songs by Paramore.

I have run into some PA members who are fans of most bands in the above list, but I think they're the exception to the rule and since the thread is "Bands prog fans generally hate but u like" I still think it's a good list.  

Happy to be proven wrong though...what bands on my list do you like Wink

I didn't know there is general hatred for them, though.

I like electronic dance music, a music style which I am sure most prog fans will not like due to its repetitive nature and 4/4 time signature into infinity.  However, as a younger (much naughtier) individual, I used to attend large electronic music events.  Psytrance parties, Progressive raves, Funky House Parties, Hardfloor Parties, and such.  I think it is fair to say that these parties during that time in my life had a huge impact on me, something that I will carry with me always, as these events create an alternate reality that only people that have been there share.  Much in the same way Prog rock provides me with a similar alternate reality that I thoroughly enjoy.   I also obviously attended rock shows back then (also played in bands myself), but the electronic parties were just something different that I needed at the time, and I still listen to it regularly (as it takes me back to those days).  Something different and refreshing :)
