King Diamond counted as metal? but that voice. I always thought it was just rock.I love metal... my favorite bands/artists are Children of Bodom, Necrophagist, and Gorguts... I've seen Children of Bodom, King Diamond, and Gorguts live ... I don't really have a favorite type of metal just like I don't really have a favorite type of music because whenever I'm listening to a song I feel like it is the best song ever but after it's over I can be somewhat objective.
