What metal does the Weave enjoy?

Title says all, I'd guess if I had to.

Recently I got a bit bored with a large amount of my library. And I figured I'd ask you guys for new stuff.

The most recent addition that I actually enjoyed is Noumena, A finnish band of....whats that genre called again?....Melodic Death Metal.....yeah thats it. Rather fun, I generally enjoy their sound a lot, especially that they have 3 singers.

So whats the news guys, got something for me?

Tool steel is a fantastically useful, all purpose alloy. It can be hardened, heat treated, and used in so many different applications. Of course when extra polish is needed, you can't go wrong with a chrome finish. Now for looks, I prefer burnished copper, but then you have to worry about a patina forming. For medical instruments silver's antispe--

Huhn? Oh, music. Um, I'm just going to sit over here, then.

Well tool steel is fun too, and I am looking for a place to learn smithing, but yes, music was more my question. But personally, i'd go with damast steel, especially the twisted one.

I'm a fan of silver - shiny, easy to polish, easy to work with, looks pretty...

Music-wise, pretty much all of it. Death, Doom, Black, Heavy, Power, Symphonic, Goth, Thrash... I love it all (except metalcore... I'm not gonna say anymore).

But unfortunately it is rather fragile by itself, and even as an alloy not quite as....crafty....as steel

I used to really really love Voivod. Still do but rarely listen to them these days. Bands I listen to most are Maximum The Hormone and Utsu-P. When I hang out in Second Life I alternate between anime music and Industrial Goth/Metal/Electro Body Music.

True, although most of my metalwork experience is in the creation of jewelry, and for that purpose silver works just fine. I'm also a big fan of platinum, for similar reasons.

As for metal music, I'll list my big faves.

Nightwish (best Metal band. Thoumas [I think that's how he spells it] is a musical genius) [Finnish]

Sirenia [Sweedish]

Sonic Syndicate (Their older music is probably the best. Though some of their newer music isn't bad at all) [Sweedish]

In Flames [Don't know]

Within Temptation (Comes close to Nightwish, but lack the real diversity that Thoumas can achieve) [Dutch]

Epica [Not sure. I want to say Dutch, but might be Sweedish]

Mushroomhead

Stemm

40 Below Summer

Trivium

Sometimes.. 8 Foot Sativa

Been listening to rock more than metal nowadays - must be getting old.
