Metal can be fantasy!
Ehm, not in my pointy elven ears. Many people love metal (Elrond included), but guitarrs and mangling is not what we want to hear when we think of elves, dragons and hobbits. Many metal bands sing of dragons and other faery things, but it's not OUR kind of fantasy. Think more of soundtrack-fantasy, instrumental, orchestrated music. Really music you can listen to whatever you are doing - painting, roleplaying, writing books, studying etc.
