Default I need help to find my music styles.

Hello everyone. This is my first post and i'm looking for help.
I need assistance to find more music i like.

I'm not a big music listener and i know little to nothing in the genre. But i sometime do listen music, and i'm getting annoyed to not be able to find music i could like.

First of all, i'm playing video games and it's almost the only ressource of music i can think of. I don't listen to any "traditionnal" music.

What i like seems to be "fast paced" theme of video games. I have some exemples. Also i prefer when the lyrics are in english i'm not a fan of japanese.

I'd say this one is my favorite.

This one is not from a video game but i like it too

The point is whenever i try to put the words to describe the music i likes i can't find anything. I'm not familiar with the terms and i just want to find more.

Thank you for your help.

It's hard to recommend based on few songs, so you could try Spotify. In the desktop (and mobile?) apps, create playlists and keep adding similar songs you like, it'll automatically show new suggestions. 2 songs of the above can be found in Spotify, plus it has a decent vgm catalog, so it could steer you in the right direction. Other than that, maybe try songs from the same composers or vocalists.

Sounds like you would perhaps enjoy some of the work of Kota Hoshino. At least some of his more recent stuff.

Check out SUNRISE by FreQuency (featuring mainly Kota Hoshino) and Armored Core 4.
