Post How many hours of music do you listen to a day?

This is a question I'm very curious about. And how many of it is doom metal?

I listen to doom metal 99% of the time. I would say I average 2-4 hours a day. looking at this number, I think I should go out of my comfort zone and explore new doom bands....

Full attention listening sessions - about 8 hours max per week (this means doing nothing else during these sessions)

Focused listening sessions - about 1-2 hours per day (I may do other stuff, but I'm mostly focused on the music)

As background music - most of the day really, both work and at home, so at least 6 hours per day.

2/3 pure doom metal, 1/3 other kinds of slow music.

I always have music playing in the background. I listen a lot to the radio too, to keep in touch with what is going on in the world. All in all something like 5 hours of music a day is a minimum. Something like 70 % doom and affiliated.

Man, my 2-4 hours can be classified as background music in your scale... I should feel ashamed...


@Tragedy Eternal: my comfort zone are the big names in Doom Metal scene. I lsten mostly to Extreme Doom Metal, but recently I started to listen to traditional doom and some stoner, still yet exploring the big names in these genres..

I'd say around 30min-1,5h a day. Currently 90% doom or related. I can't stand the stuff on the (German) radio nowadays.

Often every waking hour. I listen to my mp3 player all night in bed and in the bathroom, Spotify all day at work, in the evening usually CD's or vinyl whist watching TV on mute.

God knows how much of each genre. I listen to all sorts. I mean, with 8-12 hours continuous listening a day, I'd go insane listening to the same stuff all the time.

I see a lot of you guys listen to music as background music and I admire it because I can never do it myself. I can't catch up with ever changing riffs, can't memorize songs and completely enjoy it. Though I remember listening to a lot of Reverend Bizarre as background music but that was because they are very repetitive and have catchy riffs.

Post Re: How many hours of music do you listen to a day?

I always listen to at least two albums before going to bed, it's part of my winding down ritual. All in all, per day, I would estimate around 4 hours is dedicated to listening to music, on average.

Roughly half the time it's doom metal but rarely ever more than that. I like variety.

Ramping down. During sports I like to focus currently a little more on my exercises. On my way to work currently the new Khemmis or news channel on the radio. In the evening too much time is blocked with football these days (after yesterday I need to find a new team which I will support....Belgium, England, Uruguay probably).

Post Re: How many hours of music do you listen to a day?

There's just not enough time in the day! I try to listen to at least one or two albums a day focused. Then I'll try and get at least an hour of playing music in a day as well. More when I get obsessively into recording a project. It's impossible to listen to all the styles that I try and stay connected too though... Been loving the new Billy Gibbons blues album but then I may throw on a Cathedral record and finish off with some old prog rock haha! Yeah....anything from old 30's-modern blues, rock, soundtracks, and of course everything metal!

Post Re: How many hours of music do you listen to a day?

~1 hour during commute to work, sometimes +1-2 hours after work
On weekends if I stay at home (which happens a lot) I do listen to music for several hours in a row, 3-4 to 6-7 hours every saturday/sunday.

Mostly metal of different subgenres (death, black, gothic, doom etc), but also synthpop/futurepop, dark/neo folk, rhythmic noise, yada yada.
