I gather you probably don't like placebo, system of a down, funeral for a friend, deftones, nine inch nails, Tori Amos, portishead, the Mars Volta, either.
Assumptions again!

Yes To Placebo, Deftones, Tori Amos is ok but I prefer Suzanne Vega.

Portishead yes but I prefer Massive Attack

I do have mixed tastes and the more recent stuff I listen to is Alex Lahey, Alice Jemima, Camila Cabello etc etc
