Be forewarned, you asked:
FOMENT - To promote the growth of; incite.
You got some similar tastes to me, so I suggest maybe taking a listen to incubus (I don't see them listed there), deftones, tool (in the same vain as muse), a perfect circle and maybe even coheed (a more guitar driven, deeper thought out, sort of motion city soundtrack) . And for something a bit on the heavier side Mudvayne. A couple of them are coming off of great new albums too, so a cool time to get into them .
Gah, I love Change (In the House of Flies). It has such feeling behind the lyrics.
To Riolu Aura Sphere Now,
I often find myself listening to OP 5 (I forget the name) of Naruto every once in a while. I try to keep up with the new openings, but these things slip by, as I have been reading only the manga for two years (trying hard not to reveal spoilers!). Sometimes I listen to the Japanese Pokémon openings in comparison to the English ones, although I don't watch it anymore. I have also enjoyed songs by Maximum the Hormone, thanks to Death Note. I guess I like music from the more "mainstream" anime out there, but it depends. I don't really care for anime other than the most well-known (Shonen manga is for me!), but I have enjoyed Eureka 7, if that's any different. I'm only reading Naruto and Bleach, but I'll tune in if either is on a particularily awesome chapter (Naruto vs. Pain, Super-Hollow Ichigo). That got a tad off-topic there.
I've been trying to listen to different genres lately, and I find that I like The Mountain Goats. The lyrics to No Children and Oceanographer's Choice are just... it's so incredible and spiritually lifting. It has made me do a lot of thinking. I would classify their music as "bittersweet". Either the lyrics are depressing and the music upbeat, or the other way around.

I like that Werewolves song since I'm a fan of fantasy creatures.
Every type of music is fine, except Country, Rap, and the Beatles.
I like Techno,Trance,Alternative Rock,Rock, some punk rock,a small portion of pop and good songs that are catchy and can get stuck in my head easily.

I'm walking the fine line between Video Game Lover and Video Game Addict.

I don't particularly like any particular genre, it's more about individual songs to me.
If I had to generalize my tastes, I'd have to say instrumentals, especially those of a full orchestral nature. Video game soundtracks seem to be progressing towards this style more and more in the past 7 or so years. I've played the Viola for over 10 years now, and I guess that's had an impact on what I like now that I can place myself in the instrumentalists' shoes.
Some sample OSTs that I like are:
Interesting tidbit for anyone interested:
- Soul Calibur V Limited Edition Soundtrack, particularly the tracks "Till Fate Write's My Epitaph" [Siegfried's theme], "Faster Than A Howling Wind" [Natsu's theme] (for the exciting pace, the interesting use of European instruments along with traditional Japanese instruments), "Let My Soul Burn" [Maxi's theme] (for the powerful drum line and the sections where brass, flute, and some percussion instrument share the melody), "Blood Thirst Concerto" [Raphael's theme] (because it actually is a concerto, yet, unlike most of the concertos I've played, it uses a large amount of brass, and it portrays Raphael really well), "Samsara: The Wheel of Eternity" [Kilik's theme], and "Venice Rooftops" (SCV mix) [Ezio's theme] (for, compared to the original, a more lively drumline was added, the intro was shortened to quicken the pace, and the vocals still grab me, even after listening to it for hours on end in five separate games).
- Katamari Fortissimo Damacy, because Katamari music is infectious
- Katamari Damacy Tribute Original Soundtrack ~Katamari Takeshi~, one peep and it's stuck in your head all day...
- Metal Gear Sold 3 Snake Eater Official Soundtrack, particularly ""METAL GEAR SOLID" Main Theme (METAL GEAR SOLID 3 Version)" (I absolutely love Harry Gregson-Williams' works, the way he masterfully blends natural and synthetic tones, it's drugs to my ears), "Clash with Evil Personified" (for the slight insanity that it makes apparent and the digeridoo-like pipe instrument or synth, I can't quite tell what it is), and the three Shagohod fight themes, "Sidecar - Escape from the Fortress -", "Sidecar - On the Rail Bridge", and "Takin' On The Shogohod" (the two sidecar themes for their flighty string instruments, and the Shagohod piece for its mix of different guitars the music just increases in intensity and pitch and then returns to the lower range it starts in).
- Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare Official Soundtrack, overall for the interesting use of prominent electric bass for many of its melodies, the interesting idea of a horror western, and particularly "Get Back in That Hole, Partner" (for its excellent example of the prominent bass, and, nostalgically, the images of the first zombie fight I ever had in Undead Nightmare, which is my favorite expansion in any game, ever).
- The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Special Orchestra CD, for the interesting rearrangements of classic Zelda tunes, finally giving them the full orchestral treatment they so richly deserved.
- My Orchestra teacher realized something along with us as a class the other day; classic rock / rock and roll / early metal sounds very similar in design to music from the 1500's to the 1700's, especially that of Madrigals. Maybe it's because a lot of the musicians who did classic rock / rock and roll / early metal were classically trained.
I just like rock music with heavy baas guitar. My favorite band in linkin park. Rock music resets mind even you have tons of work :P
